I found this overly roasty and smokey/tobacco last time I tried it plain, so I decided to finish off my cup by making a soy milk latte. It is very good that way.

A decent chocolate mint tea with vanilla, mint, dark chocolate, and rooibos. Sweet, but not as creamy and decadent as I hoped for.

LPT: Brew this really strong and then add sweetener. Put into popsicle molds and make fabulous tea popsicles.

Thank you to Crow-Kettle for a sample of this!

I decided to use the whole 2 tbs because I’m going all out in my quest to use up all the caffeinated teas in my cupboard.

This tastes more like a white tea than any oolong I’ve tried. Think dried autumn leaves (that sweet smell that comes with it), tannin, a dry mouthfeel, but fairly pleasant sweet flavour. I did find it got bitter easily, and I disliked the drying effect in my mouth, but I enjoyed the flavours I got from it. Kind of vegetal, hay, honey.

Flavors: Astringent, Autumn Leaf Pile, Drying, Honey, Sweet, Vegetal

Profile

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
