A beautiful Oolong! The instructions on my tea bag said to steep for 1.5 – 2 minutes in 110 ml of boiling water. The flavor was lightly roasted with a floral undertone. The astringency was also mild, making this quite enjoyable.

I love both elderflower and chamomile, so I thought this would be a clear winner.

Steeping the sachet for 4 minutes in 150 ml of boiling water results in a medium strength, well balanced tea. I found the tea to be predominately chamomile and peppermint with a subtle floral element to balance things out.

While the tea was nice, I find that I prefer chamomile/lavender blends.

drank Masculin by Lupicia
51 tasting notes

It was pouring earlier this afternoon but felt myself feeling in the need of a pick me up. However, having consumed both matcha and coffee earlier in the morning, I was looking for something warm and non caffeinated to give me a little boost.

I rifled through my Book of Tea samples and came across Masculin which seemed to fit the bill. However, upon reading that it was an herbal blend with Roobios, I expected the worst. The strong fragrance that wafted from the teabag wasn’t promising either. But I had been pleasantly surprised before, so I went for it. I set my pot to boil and steeped as instructed in 5 oz of water for 2 minutes.

The flavor is unique. There’s a zing and heat from the ginger, ginseng and cinnamon but it didn’t taste medicinal, in fact it was a tad sweet. I actually would not recommend steeping for more than 3 minutes (in a 1/2 cup of water). It would be far too strong at that point. There is a tiny energy boost but it’s mostly a sensory reaction. My taste buds are energized but I can still feel my eyes drooping and my body is still longing for a nap.

Overall I’d give this 3.5 out of 5 stars. I’d welcome receiving it as a sample again, but don’t enjoy it enough to spend money on it.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger

I received a sample satchel via Taste the World and decided to give it a try today.

I’m not a fan of liquorice but curiosity got the best of me today and I gave it a whirl. The tea is rather sweet, and the peppermint was a nice touch, but I couldn’t finish the cup.

Received two bags from friends in the Netherlands. I have not been a fan of holiday teas in the past, but this was delicious! The fruit and spice were perfectly balanced to my preferences and I used up both bag immediately.

drank Maple Sugar Shack by Tease

I received this tea as part of my Taste The World subscription box. Based off the name of this tea, I was skeptical that I would like it as I’m not the biggest maple syrup fan.

BUT, this tea is delicious. After black tea, safflower petals and rose petals are the primary flavors with a touch of maple sweetness at the very end. The tea is very well balanced with a smooth creamy flavor with only a touch of sweetness. Tastes great straight or with a splash of milk.

Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Maple Syrup

First off Extraordinary Desserts definitely knows how to make wonderful teas!

According to their website, Ginza Girl is “A Japanese inspired blend of fresh-picked cherries, pink peppercorns, and a touch of rosemary. Stimulating and sassy!”

It’s a black tea base and you can definitely taste each of the elements described above. I find the tea to be very refreshing and bright.

I also like that it tastes great steeped for both shorter and longer periods of time. My preference for this tea is to steep lightly and drink plain.
