One of my faves. A touch less fruity than RoT’s Milk Oolong, a touch more subtle, I suppose. I like this a lot.

drank Dark Goddess Oolong by The Tea Smith

Very nice. A bit more of a dark/roasted flavor than I generally prefer, which overwhelms (or maybe replaces?) the flowery/fruity oolong flavors I like best.

drank Earl Grey White by Teavana

A very nice Earl Grey. Though not quiet as good as the one I lost when Teavana bought out SpecialTeas.com and then closed them down. Their Paris Soiree was the best—nice, grapefruity Earl Grey. I still kind of resent Teavana for that—and for losing my other SpecialTeas.com fave, that had white tea and mallow flowers and currants.

Eh, pretty good. Sometimes the fruit/flower would really hit the spot for me, sometimes not. And after a fair amount of drinking other rooibos blends (and plain) I think I just don’t like rooibos much.

drank Gyokuro Imperial by Teavana

This was one of the first straight, unflavored green teas I drank that I really liked, and began to see why anyone would like green tea much. Very full-flavored, and sort of…grassy I guess? I see people use that descriptor a fair amount about green tea and I suppose that’s what I tasted in this. Anyway, it was very nice.

This is one of my favorite of my Imperial Radch blends. I love the lavender/citrus combination, it’s sweet and fruity without being too sweet and fruity, and the lavender works great with it.

I love this tea so much. I wouldn’t have predicted I’d like it, I just tried it because I generally will try something I’ve never had before. Nice, smooth black tea, very strong rose flavor. Delicious.

Flavors: Rose

drank Milk Oolong by The Republic of Tea

I think this is my favorite oolong so far. And it is, for me at least, an excellent “starter” oolong since the floral, fruity flavors are so up front that I’m better able to notice them in more subtle teas.

Flavors: Floral, Pineapple

This is my first Keemun. I like it a lot—I realized that this is what’s missing in so many of the disappointingly anemic English Breakfast blends that I’ve tried. I’m going to have to try more keemuns, since I see people saying this one is good but not their fave.

Nice black currant flavor, nicely strong without being overpowering. I’ve tried several and been dissatisfied but this one is just the ticket.
