Confession time. I got this for 4.99 at an Asian market, solely because I loved the tin. I’d gone in looking for cheaper teas to use in the bath, and this one caught my eye for the container more than anything else. I do love a good oolong though, so I was hopeful.

When I opened it, the tea was in a plastic bag inside the tin. Once the bag was pulled out (carefully so not as many leaves got broken) and the tea was in the tin, it was definitely a full container.

The tea itself is very roasted. I did a steep with it tonight and the first steep was totally a roast flavour, but when I added some sugar honeyed notes came out.

Since I’m not a roasted oolong fan, I passed on doing other steeps. However if anyone out there is a fan of roasted, this is definitely worth a try if you spy it around.

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.


My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
