Included as a sample with a larger White2Tea purchase.

Pre-Infusion: Incredible aroma. Predominant lychee & caramel notes. Quick inhale oddly reminds me of sweet chewing tobacco (Red Man Golden Blend) that instantly transports me back in time.

Post-Infusion: Did a quick 1 min steep at 200F (didn’t have time for the full gong fu style progression). Leaves lend a distinct sweet and smooth aroma, rounding out a bit from the strong pre-infusion scent. Liquor is light amber, sweet, floral, and smooth. Lychee, raisin, and chestnut. Sweetness and mouthfeel linger. Really delightful tea.

Flavors: Chestnut, Lychee, Raisins, Tobacco

A model breakfast blend style keemun. A tad floral with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Nothing too special. Pretty typical stuff.

Picked this tea up yesterday at Special-Teas Etc in Volant, PA. Great little store. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. They also had a quite an extensive selection of their own blends, Rishi, and Octavia. This particular Ti Kuan Yin is very light and floral.

Interesting stuff. I’m a huge fan of Kukicha, so when Samovar sent me this free sample of Kuki Yerba Mate I couldn’t wait to brew some up. It has quite an interesting flavor profile. Very earthy and deep. Hints of sweetness stand out occasionally.

Received this tea with my Perfect Steeper gift set. Beautifully rolled and very aromatic, this teat yields a very light liquor that is very refreshing and mild. Great stuff.

Ah Wuyi Dark Roast…. a staple in my collection. My go-to afternoon oolong. This stuff is the bees knees. Smokey, sweet, earthy. All the flavors that a tea should have. Fantastic once again. Multiple infusions with steep times between 35 seconds to a full minute.
