I’m not sure what orchid tastes like, but I find this tea to taste like an overpowering cherry – but cherry is the last ingredient! With that said, a bit of a disappointment if you want a orchidy /strawberry/raspberry tea as promised and it smells and tastes like cherry. Other than that, it is pretty nice cherry taste…

A very interesting tea. If you ever tried those asian aloevera drinks, this tea tastes like that, but without the aloe chunks. Very nice and refreshing.

This is the best chocolately tea I’ve experienced so far and my favourite from ESP Emporium. Very chocolately with a hint of coconut. Not really much of a tea taste. I prepared it straight, but wasn’t bad with soy creamer.

A coworker gave me some of this tea from Victoria BC. It is very lemon-grassy and crisp. The first sip and it had me hold my chin and ponder like a philosopher (seriously) about it’s strong taste and combination of flavours. Very nice if you like lemongrass.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
