I got this as a sachet-which I know-blasphemy. Oh well-I get a smaller serving I can finish quicker.

I’ve had the original darker oolong version, and was curious how a greener white tea combo would do. Stereotypically, the tea had a very strong green/white grape taste that I was hoping for. The muscatel/muscadine adjacent flavor is incredible, and a little bit of sugar enhanced the flavor-though it’s juicy enough straight for this type 1 diabetic. I usually get two to three cups depending.

I actually found this one a less fake than I expected. Sure, it has the distinct same fruit flavoring aftertaste as their other teas, but it wasn’t as over the top as the Melon Oolong was. I’m now curious about Amanatasu, which regretfully, I didn’t get because I either LOVE or hate orange flavoring. If it’s closer to Satsuma, I might like it. As for this one, I’m really pleased with it.

We have Decaf Muscat for evenings and I enjoy it. I had it side by side with Jingle Bells which is superior, but if you need a night option and haven’t just had the seasonal special, it is really good.

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.
