I got more of this one because I was craving the floral combo of green bean, snowpea, and plumeria. I don’t always like super vegetal tea, but I like it when it’s on the fresher green end. Upping the rating considering I got another ounce of this to savor. I was going to get two, but I’m trying to cut back on some spending and enjoy my tea more slowly. The majority of this oz is going to Leafhopper for the swap I’m collecting. This is the first time I don’t have an ample amount of Gaoshan to trade! Most of mine is flavored right now and black teas I’ve been neglecting despite being higher quality than usual, and I’m in the time of year when I switch from wanting black tea to Greener oolongs more often….even though Green oolong is something I ALWAYS drink, I get withdrawals without it starting between spring and winter.

Flavors: Apple, Creamy, Floral, Freshly Cut Grass, Green, Green Beans, Juicy, Melon, Pear, Soft, Vanilla


Ooh, looking forward to trying this! :) I also gravitate toward green oolong in springtime, and even green tea in small amounts.

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.
