Still enjoying this one from Yezi. They really do have some great offerings in terms of both puerh and black (red) tea. There’s a slight sweetness to this while also being malty with a medium strength to it.

sipdown! sorry to see this one go, especially since i have no keemuns in my cupboard at the moment but also nice to feel like i’m making a bit of progress with my cupboard. Dropping the rating a little on this one since it’s not as delicious as the first time i had it. There are other smokey teas that i prefer…but this one is still good!

drank Vanilla Citrus Spice by Verdant Tea

another one that i haven’t had in a long time. I think this time it worked out better because i had less tea and more of the “extra bits” in it. I am NOT a fan of last years harvest of the base tea for this one. It wasn’t a great year for it.. i’m hoping that this year is better because prior to this year, this was a high 80 for me.

CHAroma

I totally agree! Something about the Zhu Rong last year was off.

Sil

i hope this years harvest will be better..i REALLY loved this until zhu rong was jsut weird.

And The Golden Fleece is not the same tea either. Made me sad.

Terri HarpLady

I think YS’s Imperial Mojiang Gold Bud is more like the original golden fleece

MzPriss

The most recent Whispering Pines Imperial Gold Bud – the 2015 version tastes a lot like it to me as well.

catching up on things. I pulled this one out last night because i haven’t had it in a very long time. It’s still a delicious cup of vanilla, bready, citruslike delicious tea. esp when you steep it for like 10 mins :)

CHAroma

Ooh, yes! This is a new favorite of mine!

sipdown! the last of this will be off to beelicious in our swap. I really still adore this tea. It’s just the right sort of chocolate tea for me – leaning towards dark versus milk and not being sweet. I just wish MF sold this loseleaf versus their overpriced tins.

beelicious

oooo can’t wait!!! :)

Sil

didn’t want you to think i’d sipped it down without saving yours for you! even if i haven’t gotten it out the door, it’s here waiting to be sent out once i get my bags :)

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
