This tea was tasty, but not something I need to repurchase. I preferred the Bosung, in terms of Korean black teas from Mansa.

Such an interesting combination of flavors! I mostly smell the ginger in the dry leaf, with the cinnamon and toasted rice being the dominant aromas when brewed. However, the balance in flavor between the tropical fruits and spices is so unique! I can taste the banana and mango distinctly, with some cinnamon and ginger balancing out the fruitiness. The roastiness of the popped and toasted rice adds to the overall flavor rather than detracting from it.

Flavors: banana, Cinnamon, Ginger, Mango, Roasted

I’ve got this one and absolutely can’t wait to try it.

This tastes exactly as the name would lead you to believe. Cranberry and dark chocolate, with a touch of creaminess.

This cup is extremely sweet- like brown sugar was dissolved into the cup. This is the best cup yet.

Not my favorite Jin Xuan. It lacks the creaminess I look for, and has a generic basic oolong flavor.

I was in a rare maple mood, so had to jump on the chance to drink one of the few maple teas in my stash. This one has been sitting in my sipdown box, so seemed like a good choice.
The maple is actually much more mild than I thought, with the toasty rice being the dominant flavor.

Accidental sipdown because my cat spilled the remainder of the pouch. Oh well.

This cup is particularly bready, with a touch of white flowers.

This tea was an unfortunate victim of sitting in my sipdown box for too long. Because of that, it really picked up some strange flavors and just didn’t taste quite right when I tried to drink it.

This tastes more like a white nectarine than cherry to me. Not disappointed in the least by that.
