Flowery, calming before-bedtime tea, I find this very similar to DAVIDsTea’s Dream On; I’ll have to experiment a little more to find out which one I prefer.

I didn’t like this one at first, but I’m warming up to it. Still not something that I’ll look to replenish once it’s gone, but I’ll enjoy what I have left.

Way too flowery for my liking. I hated it the first time around, decided to give it a second chance and while it went down a little easier that time, it’s still not something that I’ll want to drink again. I put the rest of it in the kitchen at work hoping someone else will like it.

If you don’t want it I’ll buy it!

Based on the other reviewers’ comments, I suppose that this is a good tea for what it is, but I guess the jasmine flavour just isn’t for me. I’ll drink it sparingly to get through what I have, but it’s unlikely that I’ll ever buy it again.

So far my favourite before-bedtime tea. I definitely need to keep a good supply on hand.

Love this fruity oolong. Still trying to decide which I prefer, this or Long Life; I find them very similar in taste.

I like it as a before-bedtime tea.

Got this as a free sample with an order I placed. I liked it and will probably want to keep some on hand. Flowery or fruity? Hard to say, maybe the perfect balance between the two. Probably very good cold, I’ll have to try.

Bio

I started drinking tea in spring of 2017 in an effort to reduce my coffee/pop consumption while getting some of the benefits from tea. I’m still just exploring various teas and trying to figure out what I like most.

I’m far from a tea connaisseur/enthusiast. My notes are not meant to be a review for the tea community, but rather for myself so I know what to buy or not buy again (I wish there was a way to keep notes private).

That being said, I’ll try to stick to these guidelines when I rate teas (copied from Kittenna):

100: This tea is amazing and I will go out of my way to keep it in stock.

85-99: My core collection (or a tea that would be, if I was allowing myself to restock everything!) Teas I get cravings for, and drink often.

75-84: Good but not amazing; I might keep these in stock sparingly depending on current preferences.

67-74: Not bad, I’ll happily finish what I have but probably won’t ever buy it again as there’s likely something rated more highly that I prefer.

51-66: Drinkable and maybe has some aspect that I like, but not really worth picking up again.

34-50: Not for me, but I can see why others might like it. I’ll make it through the cup and maybe experiment with the rest to get rid of it.

0-33: It’s a struggle to get through the cup, if I do at all. I will not willingly consume this one again, and will attempt to get rid of the rest of the tea if I have any left.
