Having this tea this morning, I wasn’t quite awake yet. I read the flavors – fresh flowers, bumblebee? It’s buttercream. Which I don’t get. The bumblebee gave me a chuckle. What does bumblebee taste like?
Mostly I get flowers out of this tea. It’s not sugary tasting.

Flavors: Flowers


Bumblebees probably taste like fuzzy honey ;)

Sipdown. Sample?
I really wish I would have tried this earlier. It’s sold out and I can’t order any.
So good. Honey and smooth, but I wish I could have more of it to drink.

Flavors: Honey

Sipdown. Tea club
I did not like this tea all that much, which is unfortunate because I usually like white2tea’s black teas. I drank this western style for the entire 50g bag.
Faint peach flavor. Very easy to over steep, sometimes woody. Not a very robust tea and easy to make unpleasant. When it was a decent cup, it didn’t have a lot of flavor.

Flavors: Peach, Woody

Sipdown. Pretty sure this was from the White2Tea club. I liked it, but I don’t have solid flavor notes from it, more feelings. Warm, comforting, slightly sweet.

Sipdown, western style. Kinda contrary to normal directions for these, but I don’t do too much gong fu style due to it taking more time/energy than I have sometimes.
Three steeps on this, at boiling for the 1st, then with cooler water for the other two. Flavors stayed the same throughout, just weaker on the later steeps.
Sweet, amber (maybe honey?? not sure what I meant here), sugar cane, chocolate, cocoa. A nice smooth black tea.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Honey, Sugarcane, Sweet

I drank all of this tea hot and probably should have cold brewed some of it. There were big pieces of raspberry in it, but they didn’t impart much flavor. I wanted it to be more than what it was giving me. Honeybush, light fruityness

Flavors: Fruity, Honey

Sipdown. I don’t remember anything striking about this tea. It was okay, but not a repurchase.

I really liked this and am sad that I have drank it all. Pretty sure this came in one of the club boxes. Solid black tea would order more if available.


I don’t know if you saw that this is still available: https://white2tea.com/collections/black-tea/products/yanhong-black-tea
(I drank this today, so I’m reading notes from others.)


Thanks! tea-sipper I hadn’t seen that. I will probably order some (even though I really don’t need more tea).

Sipdown. I liked this. I don’t have any notes for you, but I would purchase it again.

White2Tea club – Sipdown.

I didn’t like the taste of this one. Dry leaf smells fruity. Taste is fruity, but has an unpleasant aftertaste. Astringent and drying.
Western style preparation (like everything lately, at work).

Flavors: Astringent, Drying, Fruity

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick or traveling.

I like black, oolong, white, herbals, and raw/ripe pu’erh. I don’t drink green tea often.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

My cupboard is completely out of date. I have a spreadsheet (it’s current!!!) that’s over 300 teas. Pretty equal amounts of black, white, oolong, raw, & ripe with a little bit of green/herbal.

85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
