So Teasuce bought this over and I really liked it . I love lemongrass and coconut together,they just pair well. I had this hot with nothing added to it. I know it would be awesome iced.

This tea came in my sample pack that I bought awhile back. So I will say I this is my favorite dragonwell. It has a citrus undertone to it that I love. A really great tea for sure.

This is the 3rd Golden tips tea I have had. Thanks to Teavivre for the sample. This is a hearty tea to drink. No astringency at all, very smooth.

drank Neapolitan Honeybush by 52teas

Love this tea! Honeybush is one of the only teas that I like flavored now. This tea delivers, when you open the bag you get the strawberry and chocolate right off the bat. I almost never add cream or sugar, but I added a little and it was like drinking ice cream. Satisfies the sweet tooth. :)


My mom decided to order me this, but I won’t get it till next week. Your note makes me want to have it now!


yeah I’ve gone through half of the bag already. I might need to order the 4oz next time.

I love to play with the seeping time of Ya Bao. I thought that Verdant was the only one to sell this tea, so I was pleased to see that Norbu did At $4.75 for 50g it was hard to pass up. Since this was just picked I can notice differences between this and a more aged Yao Bao like Verdant’s. This has a sweet cedar taste to it. It seems like the aging of this tea brings out more fruit notes.

Wow! Received this as a sample and it is great!. Honey floral notes all around :) Lite astringency on the tongue, but still sweet. Norbu always delights me with a great sample.


checking this out – never heard of them :)


Steepter Select used them from the october box of oolong. I have made four orders since then. really great tea!

Thanks to Bonnie for a sample of this. The dry leaf has a very very pungent smell. Smelled like a strawberry perfume. I am usually not a fan of flavored black teas, but this was a little different. The taste to me has a berry like flavor. It surprised me.:)


I think that the context of how this has been used is part of what makes it different. The Russian Tea Room and other places where you would add other things to the tea…like the sour cherry jam. It becomes dessert. Did some reading on this after it was prepared for me this way a few years ago.

The DJBooth

I saw a bag from this company in the Asian grocery of all places and my curiosity was peaked.

So I thought wrote a review, but I guess I just thought that I did. I am drinking this now, and it is very floral. Its not a bad thing, but I think I just like my oolongs buttery :). Still very good.

Not bad, not bad at all to me. This tea would be great to cook with, like a marinade for steak or chicken. Hmm….


Hmm… Never thought to apply this tea to a savory dish but good thinking!

drank Waterlilies Fruit Tea by Teavivre

just opened my samples from Teavivre. I was in the mood for something fruity so I grabbed this. I steeped it for 5 mins, and it came out a little tart. Which I was surprised by since it does not have hibiscus in it. The pineapple is great. I might like this better iced.

I’m a lover of all teas. Open to almost anything,but my favorite are oolong, black, and green. I have recently been trying to get into pu’er .

Other then tea, I’m an Apple fan girl and a fan of basketball and tennis. My favorite teams are Spurs,Celtics, Thunder, and …Lebron (LOL). I have a degree in Anthropology, which at the moment is not being used.
