Sample from VariaTEA. I’ll have to try this one again. The aroma was divine but i think? i recall the taste being a little too oolongy for me. That being said it’s been a few days so i’ll revisit and make sure :)

Sipdown.
Good light earl grey. This tea has the odd white tea leaf in it as well. More for looks than taste.
It was light on the bergamot. It never got too strong or artificial tasting. Good tea for a daily drinker. I would buy this again.

Flavors: Bergamot

Sipdown @work. Fruity and malty. I wouldn’t mind replacing this when I’ve reduced my tea stash.

I followed brewing instructions at 212F for 4 min.
Cherry, sarsaparilla and creamy. It did have an odd, off note at the end. I didn’t like it all that much, but I might it at a lower temperature or for less time to see if I can get rid of the odd flavor. I do really like the cherry flavor at the beginning. No coffee flavor at all!

Edit: Brewing for 2 min got rid of the weird note.

Flavors: Cherry, Creamy, Sarsaparilla

This is a strong tea. It’s not CTC grade, but I had to reduce steep time so to not be overwhelmed by malt and strength. Well suited for the addition of milk and sugar. Good tea for work, a very good wake me up.

Flavors: Malt

I’m working on drinking down my green teas/blends. This tea has a lot of cinnamon and other warming spicyness to it. The spicyness isn’t peppery. You can taste the base green underneath.
My purchase is getting old as this was a more well rounded tea earlier. I liked this tea, but all my green teas get neglected so I won’t be repurchasing. Sipdown. 80

Sipdown: I don’t remember much about this tea. It’s not a favorite.

Backlog. I really like having this tea shop in town. I’m willing to take a chance on teas because I want to support them.
I’m slowly getting more into green teas now that my palate has evolved more. And I’m buying better quality green teas.
Dry leaf smells of lavender, jasmine, and rose.
2m, 190F, westren
tastes of lavender, jasmine and green. The rose falls under general floralness of the tea. Also, kind of spicy.

Flavors: Jasmine, Lavender, Rose, Spicy

Sipdown. I mixed this with the last of Summer Solstice in a cold brew together for a fruity, citrus and super tart brew. It was okay for a cold brew, but pretty tart. Glad I was able to use them up together as they turned out not to be one of Little Woods better blends. Just too much hibiscus overall and a lack of actual tea leaves.

Flavors: Hibiscus, Tart

Backlog. Dry leaf is tart and citrus. I say leaf, but I really mean lemongrass with a little bit of black tea. I wish there was more tea in this blend. The black is lost under all the lemon.
180F, 5 min, westren, 12oz
hibiscus and lemongrass with a bit of black base. Pretty tart. I might see if some of the flavors are muted if I cold-brewed it. Or I could add more black tea the next time I make it.

Flavors: Citrus, Hibiscus, Lemon, Lemongrass, Tart

Backlog.
This tea is a little finicky. Sometimes it’s awesome, other times it’s too tart and astringent.
A lot of tart hibiscus, little bit of orange and a bit astringent. I think this might be better at a slightly lower temp or cold brewed. or I used too much tea. Puckery.

Flavors: Astringent, Hibiscus, Orange, Tart

Backlog. I think this tea is my favorite of all their blends.
Smoky, almost cherry-fruity, and a little bit creamy. sarsasparilla comes out more towards end of sip and more as it cools. Consistently good.

Backlog. Had this both westren in the shop and at home in my gaiwan. Really delicate tea, really easy to oversteep. A bit finicky. Kept steep times short to enjoy the flavor. Clean, grassy and sweet.

Sipdown. I tried to do this tea in a gaiwan – really messy mistake and had to transfer to westren style as to not waste any tea. I really like this tea. Hope they get all the ingredients in soon so that I can repurchase it.
Bye delicious tea!

Backlog. I wanted to type this up somewhere not on my phone, but work’s been too crazy busy. Dry leaf smells great! Orange milk oolong / cream soda. Sarsaparilla.
3 min, 200F – orange, sarsaparilla, creamy middle
3min, 4 min – lost the orange, creamy, little root beer, sarsaparilla really helps bring creamsicle feeling

Flavors: Creamy, Orange, Root Beer, Sarsaparilla
