Milk Oolong

Style: Milky Oolong – Region: ?????
Jan. 4th, 2013

My first review and my first Milk Oolong and I'm head over heels in LOVE. Mmmm the smell and flavor are heavenly like milk candies. Very silky, creamy and buttery. I don't really detect any floral notes but there is some vegetal and it is good for quite a few resteeps about 5 or 6. I love this tea!!

Red Dragon Pearl

Style: Black Tea – Region: Yunnan, China
Mar. 28th, 2011

These chickpea sized balls of tea are too cute. They look like miniature rag balls that weavers or braiders use in making rugs. There is a definite scent of chocolate and dried leaves to them. As they brew, this continues and you are rewarded with a lovely smooth, sweet malty drink. There is a nice litle kick of ast...
