Thank you Liquid Proust for this sample!

Tasting #1 – Steep Time 2 Minutes
Excellent color already, slight metallic flavor with roasted qualities. I’m absolutely amazed at how this tea has turned out already.

Tasting #2 – Steep Time 4 Minutes
This reminds me of the Iron Goddess of Mercy with the darkness of the flavors, but not being black. Delicious and soothing

Tasting #3 – Steep Time 6 Minutes
The aroma and flavors have stayed consistent all the way through. I am loving this tea. As soon as my cup is empty I’m ready to fill it again.

Flavors: Metallic, Roasted

I wondered if this one is what an Oriental Beauty tastes like. It was interesting, but pretty close to a Darjeeling. It tasted like super dry raisins and apricots to me. It’s a good tea, but not my preference.

Flavors: Apricot, Drying, Raisins

drank Oolong Supreme by faeries finest
48 tasting notes

This is a nice toasty and flavorful oolong. The flavor is relatively full and complex, but it’s also purely from the tea.

‘Supreme Oolong’… this is a Darjeeling oolong.
The first brew is dark and stronger than I like. The second to fourth brew has a slight sweetness to it that I really enjoy. While this could probably brew more, I stopped at the fourth steeping. I decided to brew this after the Yunnan Gold because I was somewhat disappointed with Faerie’s Finest with that tea… this made up for it. I think my taste for Darjeeling oolongs are forever altered after drinking the Formosa Champagne Oolong by Art of Tea because that stuff is just so smooth.

This is the first Faeries Finest product that I have not liked… rather bitter brew. I am actually going to use this to create a coffee grapefruit black tea blend for my bestfriend.

So happy I brew this way I do; because I dislike black teas I steep them at 190 for 2/3 of the time that they should.
This brews a light gold cup that has a nice cocoa taste to it that is actually attached to the black tea taste which is actually wonderful as I brewed it mildly.
I am rather excited to compare these to other black dragon pearls. I think the only way this type of tea can have a higher score is if there was a buttery or honey taste somehow that mixes with the cocoa, though I still like it the way it is now.

drank Jade by faeries finest

If this was a white tea only it would make me angry at how subtle it would be. However, the green tea adds a nice hint of difference in this tea. For what this tea is, it is great. Knowing what to expect when drinking any tea is important and since I knew that this would be very mild I found it to be quite pleasant. Still a little dry and just ‘so’ ‘so’ as far as tea goes.

Maybe a cold brew would bring out more flavour?

I’m not sure. White teas haven’t been my thing. I do have over a dozen 1oz unopened bags of this if you want some __
I ordered 1oz and ended up with 20oz

drank Gyokuro by faeries finest
1107 tasting notes

This is what I would call a mid range gyokuro. It’s bright green and has a nice sweetness to its vegetable taste but it isn’t the best yet it isn’t bad nor could I make any remarks to anything I dislike about it; I’m just simply comparing it to other gyokuros I have tasted.
Ice steeping this tea = YUMMY!
I take a teaspoon of this tea and let it fall to the bottom of a cup and pile ice on top of it while I decide to neglect it for 30 minutes. When I return to the cup there is a nice cool liquid in the cup that I can drink with a smile and repeat by throwing more ice on top. Not only is this unique and fun, I get to eat this gyokuro at the end :)
