97

This is officially a favorite and something I want to be a staple. Clearly, a few other people get it in bulk and make it their staple too because it keeps selling out. It is no wonder, though, because the tea is that good. I guess everyone wants to commit cremes. It’s pretty flexible under my tumbler, and less is more with the approach. It can actually gong fu, but western serves it well. I know the jin xuan is flavored too, but there are natural florals that blend seamlessly with the violet, and it’s not an overly spinachy base either.

I’m not sure what to rate it since I’d almost do a hundred, but I’m doing 95….for now. My friends have also deeply enjoyed it. It’s really more of an late eventing tea, but I can drink it any time.

Earlier this year my friend Marika bought them out of it entirely – it’s definitely a favourite of us both.

It’s always been sold out any time I’ve checked the site…

Daylon R Thomas

How many grams? I got 2 2 oz to have some lol

Roswell Strange

I think she bought something like 400g of it

One day it will be available again and that’s when I shall try this company. One day.

Daylon R Thomas

I joined the mailing list to get it. I stalked the website for a month until it restocked.

Daylon R Thomas

I feel your pain…

CrowKettle

Is this a Whispering Pines level of desperation?

Thanks for tip about the mailing list :|

Daylon R Thomas

Close. Brutaliteas is not as expensive or snobby as Whispering Pines, but I had that level of Desperation as I did for frickin’ Rivendell. There are good teas for the bases though. This is actually not an expensive tea at all-like $13 for 2 oz, and Evoolong is actually a really good pure Jade Oolong.

CrowKettle

I’ve made peace with never drinking Rivendell again… But I want to partake in Voilet Cremes with all of you :P

Leafhopper

I’d ask for a small sample of this in our swap, but you’re probably hoarding it. :P

Daylon R Thomas

I’ll put it in. Luckily, I got 4 oz worth in two bags, so it will be easy to share.

Leafhopper

Thanks! :)

Tiffany :)

I too am stalking the site for this one to place my first order with this company.. someday y’all we will all get to try this!! :D

CrowKettle

There may be some available right now, fyi! ;)

I’m not sure I can order any in time because shipping to Canada is iffy apparently (I should’ve inquired directly sooner, I guess), but the rest of you should go for it!

Daylon R Thomas

Damn that went fast.

CrowKettle

Reached out to them and sounds like there’s more coming in a few weeks. Trying this once and for all is now my tea priority, haha.

Leafhopper

If those Violet Cremes are as good as they smell, getting them is indeed a good tea priority. :) You’ll have to let us know what shipping is like to Canada.

Daylon R Thomas

Have you tried the amount I’ve sent yet? I may have repacked it yet, but I don’t remember.

Leafhopper

No, I haven’t tried it, though it smells lovely. I’m focusing on the teas I’m putting into my swap boxes so I can finally send them out. You’re getting two Baozhongs that I think you’ll enjoy. :)

CrowKettle

Yes! I’m curious to see what you think when you eventually get around to trying it, Leafhopper :)

Mastress Alita

I was one of the peeps that decided to snag some thanks to the restock announcement, so thank you!

Currently, my stash is overflowing. Among my favorites are What-Cha’s Lishan Black, Amber Gaba Oolong, Lishan Oolong, Qilan Oolong, White Rhino, Kenya Silver Needle, Tong Mu Lapsang Black (Unsmoked); Whispering Pines Alice, Taiwanese Assam, Wang’s Shanlinxi, Cuifeng, Dayuling, Jasmine Shan Lin Xi; Beautiful Taiwan Tea Co.“Old Style” Dong Ding, Mandala Milk Oolong; Paru’s Milk Oolong

Me:

I am an MSU graduate, and current alternative ed. high school social studies and history teacher. I formerly minored in anthropology, and I love Egyptian and classical history. I love to read, write, draw, paint, sculpt, fence(with a sword), practice calisthenics on rings, lift weights, workout, relax, and drink a cuppa tea…or twenty.

I’ve been drinking green and black teas ever since I was little living in Hawaii. Eastern Asian influence was prominent with my friends and where I grew up, so I’ve been exposed to some tea culture at a young age. I’ve come a long way since I began on steepster and now drink most teas gong fu, especially oolong. Any tea that is naturally creamy, fruity, or sweet without a lot of added flavoring ranks as a must have for me. I also love black teas and dark oolongs with the elusive “cocoa” note. My favorites are lighter Earl Greys, some white teas like What-Cha’s Kenyan offerings, most Hong-Cha’s, darker Darjeelings, almost anything from Nepal, Green Shan Lin Xi’s, and Greener Dong Dings. I’m in the process of trying Alishan’s. I also tend to really enjoy Yunnan Black or Red teas and white teas. I’m pickier with other teas like chamomile, green teas, and Masalas among several.

I used to give ratings, but now I only rate teas that have a strong impression on me. If I really like it, I’ll write it down.

I’ll enjoy a tea almost no matter what, even if the purpose is more medicinal, for it is my truest vice and addiction.
