I think this is the most expensive tea I have bought, other than David Tea’s Pheonix Oolong , which I mostly get with frequent steeper points. This is also my first time trying a oriental beauty oolong, and I have heard so many people rave about it.

Smell: When it is dry, it smells slightly floral, and also like a dark oolong tea. Almost like a black tea. Once steeped, the aroma is extremely faint. It smells slightly like stone fruit, and also floral. But it is very mild (not unpleasant in any way)

Taste: The way I would describe this is… extremely complex, but in a great way. It tastes extremely expensive, smooth, and it has zero astringency. It tastes like unsweetened honey, peaches, and flowers? It also has a pleasant aftertaste.

A very smooth cup, and something I could see myself repurchasing.

Flavors: Floral, Honey, Peach, Smooth, Stonefruit

Hello everyone!

So, how did I get into tea? I think I have always had a fascination with tea. But I really got obsessed with it after watching Avatar: The Last Airbender. I loved how Uncle Iroh used tea as a way to both practice self-care and connect with others.

I aspire to do the same through my tea endeavours.

My Favourite Canadian Small Tea Businesses: (Thus far! As I explore new tea brands, I am sure this list will grow)

Dessert by Deb
The Tea Haus
The Chai Brewing Company

My Preferred Preparation:
For black teas, I prefer the stove-top method with milk and sugar. For all other teas and herbal infusions, I usually prefer having them hot without any add-ins. However, I do like an occasional iced tea! Especially for some fruity or floral blends.

My Tea Preferences:
I enjoy flavoured teas more than straight teas; however, I do have a soft spot for traditional green or oolong teas.

Favourite Flavours:
- Masala chai (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and other warming spices!)
- Cream
- Mint
- Tropical fruit (lychee, mango, pineapple)
- Maple 
- Orange
- Roasted/smokey
- Caramel
- Floral (especially jasmine)
- Honey
- Nuts (hazelnut, almond)
- Sweet potato
- Fall fruits (apples, cranberries)
- Earl Grey

Least Liked Flavours:
- Anything that tastes too artificial (especially vanilla or chocolate!)

- Tart (too much hibiscus)

- Ginseng

- Guarana powder 

- Coconut oil (or oily teas)

- Red rooibos
