When I asked my sister to smell the leaves, the first thing she said to me was, “It smells like Fig Newtons!” I’m not sure if I agree with that sentiment, but it does remind me of something. Creamy and lemony, this tea smells like sugar and cream. However, once it’s brewed, much of that flavor isn’t really present. You get the first hint of a creamy texture in your mouth, with hints of a lemony feeling, with a stronger flavor at the end. It’s a bit odd, honestly. I enjoyed it, though, once I put a little sugar in. I’m not usually a sugar-in-tea sort of person, but this tea felt like it called for it. Overall, it’s not something that I’ll be re-purchasing. I might try cold-brewing it, though, and see how that turns out… It’s not that it’s bad, it’s just not a flavor profile that I enjoy.

I first tried this at Siptea out in downtown LA. It was so good, I bought a couple ounces to take home with me. The vanilla smells absolutely amazing — every time I introduce a new friend to this, the usual reaction is “whoa.”

A very caramelly, creamy Oolong with hints of citrus and floral tones. If I didn’t know it, I’d almost think it was a coconut Oolong. It smells divine dry and steeped, and tastes as good as it smells.

I always loved oolongs. This tops the bunch. I didnt think I could pull notes from a tea like this before.
