Black Mango

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend
Jan. 11th, 2019

Wow. This was one of the best-executed, if not THE best, fruit black teas I've ever tried.

I'm not normally a fan of flavored teas, but I had the opportunity to smell this at my parent's house, and the leaf smelled really appealing. The fruitiness is strong but it doesn't completely cover the aroma of the tea itself...

Jasmine Pearls

Style: Jasmine Pearls – Region: Hunan, China
Jan. 3rd, 2019

Lovely jasmine pearl tea. The hand rolled pearls open gently as it brews. The taste is delicate—not as grassy or as floral as a few of the other jasmine greens out there. Nice tea that is smooth and easily drinkable.

Royal Phoenix

Style: Dancong Oolong – Region: Guangdong, China
Mar. 20th, 2017

This is a 2nd generation Mi-Lan varietal Dancong from the Phoenix Mountains (Fenghuang Shan) in Guangdong Province. I've heard amazing things about this type of Oolong and I must say, it does not disappoint. It tastes extremely elegant and well crafted. It is rather smooth and leaves a coating around your mouth along w...
