Recent Tasting Notes


I had the Jin Jun Mei black tea and I add this tea to one my favorite teas to drink. It had such a nice strong flavor that made me feel more awake. There was also something refreshing about its flavor.

Flavors: Dark Bittersweet

So let me preface this by saying I’m not sure if this is the right tea… I bought two teas from a seller each one was $8.80 and their bags and labels were the same when I got them and I’m not entirely sure which one is which. I have a message to the seller so she can help me but until then, I’ll assume it’s this one.

This is my most recent batch of Rizhao black teas and this is also the least expensive one I’ve found. It’s also my absolute, hands down, favorite one. The dark chocolate (think bakers chocolate), with strong cinnamon, and honey notes seriously make me want to do cartwheels. I can’t even fully explain how delicious this was. Even drinking it in a travel mug. I got 3 amazing steeps (all with deep flavor) out of it using my new ultimate favorite travel mug:


It was expensive ($40 with shipping), but is perfect in my opinion. It’s mostly stainless steel and glass. You put the tea at the bottom and push this button that opens the filter. Let it steep. Then turn it upside down until the tea drains from the bottom and push the button again and it closes the filter. Works perfectly. I think I hit the jackpot. I was about to order another, but the seller I ordered from doesn’t have them anymore. Bummer. Other sellers are trying to get upwards of $70 for it and there’s no chance I’d pay that.

Anyway, super stoked about both purchases.

I want one of those tea steepers!!!!


I’m glad the mug worked well, that was certainly one of the nicest, the other glass ones I’ve seen have been more like sports bottle designs. Does the packaging on the tea look like this?

If so the cooperative has an interesting website. If you live in China at one point they were handing out free samples.



I’ll keep my eye out and let you know if I find anyone with reasonable prices. I sent a message to the seller to see if he could track down a few more… I’ll keep you posted!


@yyz- No, it’s super generic looking. Nothing that even says Rizhao on it.


Wrong cooperative then. I remembered seeing her images associated with other teas I’ve looked at. I think she might belong to this one then.



Yeah, that looks like the one.


What’s the makeup of all the parts? Is the see-through part glass? What about the main barrel? How hot does the outside get? Definitely interested in that one.


i think you just need to post somewhere in the discussion forum…we all have questions! lol

I feel like i just need o send you money and have you shop at alexipress for me..since that site is just dangerous for me..
