I must’ve made this tea very wrong (despite steeping within the specifications on the bag), because it was pretty bitter and unpleasant. I’m not rating it because I’m not sure if this was user error or age (it’s about 14 months old), but I’ll have to give it another shot at some point.

I love lavender flavored things, but they can often err on the side of perfume city. This one walks the line pretty carefully, but is nicely balanced by the honey flavor. It was very nice as an iced latte!

This is by far my favorite of all of the cotton candy teas I’ve tasted. It’s distinctly cotton candy, but not cloyingly sweet. The combination of dried fruits is delectable, and in conjunction with the flavoring makes quite a treat.

I received this as a sample in an order I placed from Music City Tea for some teaware. I found this to be just okay. Very, very smokey and lacked much depth. A bit of a minerality and wet rock flavor with subsequent steeps, but the smokiness was a bit too overpowering.

Spring 2019. This is one of my favorites from my Mountain Stream order. It’s very buttery, and has a mild floral finish. A very easy drinker that I gulped down. No bitterness or astringency at all.

I think I need to tuck into some high quality lovely oolongs in these times.
