This white tea steeps into a light amber color with a pleasing sweet hay aroma. It has a hay taste on the front end that makes way into a strong melon flavor. The sweetness and melon flavor is a little overpowering for me. It is a decent tea, but it is not for me.

This is a young raw pu-erh with the aroma to match. It has a nice juicy plum flavor with hints of wood. It’s a little bitter on the front end but sweet and smooth on the back end. I enjoyed the taste of this tea and its complexity.

This tea has a subtle woody aroma. The taste is sweet and muted with flavors of honey and something else I can’t put my finger on. I am going to let it cool down some to see if it becomes discernible. There we go, it was chocolate powder drink. As it cools, the honey taste fades and it is replaced by chocolate. It is very Nesquikian in its flavor profile at the cooler temp. I liked it and I am glad I tried it, but it is not something that will make it into my rotation.

Flavors: Chocolate, Honey

This tea is a light oolong with strong floral aroma. The tea is floral and buttery with a pronounced creamy aftertaste. If you take your oolong tea with cream and flower, this tea is perfect for you. It is slightly too buttery for me, but only slightly. Otherwise it is an excellent tea.

This tea is a medium oolong with interested leaves that are a mix of green, brown and black. It has a light baked taste with flavors of flowers and fruit. It is a good tea, but again the fruitiness just doesn’t do it for me. This is more of a personal preference than a knock on the tea, which is of high quality.

Flavors: Floral, Fruity

As soon as I opened the sample, I was hit with a strong smell of sweet hay from the leaves. The tea has a very pleasing aroma, but not as strong as the leaves. The texture of the tea is amazingly light, it takes a second or two for the flavor to hit after a sip, gradually growing. It is sweet with flavors of wheat toast and maple syrup. This tea is complex and tasty, definitely a winner.

Flavors: Maple Syrup, Toast, Wheat
