drank Sakurambo Vert by Lupicia

This is one of my favorite green teas of the moment. The cherry flavor is mild and not pronounced but is very light and refreshing, not bitter at all. I also made iced tea out of it and thought it was delightful.


Oh, that sounds really good!

I really did not know if I would like this tea but I am a huge fan of pu-erhs. The smell coming from the tea is incredible. I enjoyed mine with a splash of almond milk and that is perfect. I actually think I liked the strawberry element a bit better than the chocolate, but it is a very unique experience.

drank Coconut Oolong by Rishi Tea
2816 tasting notes

This is the tea that really got me into oolongs. The coconut smells a lot stronger than it actually tastes. It is very smooth, a perfect afternoon tea. Light and gentle on the stomach, not too much caffeine. I will definitely be getting more of this in the future!

“I liked the idea of a lapsang souchong blend because plain lapsang can be too strong for me. Mixing with the vanilla oolong and the black cream is such a good idea. The tea really does smell like a campfire but I was hoping for a stronger marshmallow element. I ended up adding some soymilk and a bit of vanilla extract which definitely helped bump up the flavor a bit

Definitely my favorite tea of the moment. I have tried a few other ginger pu-erhs but nobody seems to do it as well as Rishi. I love the combination of the smoky flavor of pu-erh mixed with the zingy bite of ginger. It is my favorite morning time brew, perfect with a splash of soymilk.

drank Dewy Cherry by Adagio Teas

I love fruit teas, this one has a very pleasant cherry flavor, a bit on the sweeter side as opposed to tart which is just the way I like it! Has a very nice, reddish color. Also perfect with a tiny bit of brandy. :)


I have to try this one!


It is very nice!


I just tried this one last night and I love it! Good recomendation :)

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

89-80 Pretty good, above average
