I was really not a fan of this tea. First, like many others have said, it tastes nothing like the description states it should. For me, the smell itself was a bit overpowering. Spicey smelling, but there was something else which I couldn’t put my finger on. Upon brewing it became a spice/fruit combo which I cared nothing for. I like both of those in a tea, but apparently not together. The tastes seemed conflicting, and to my palate it was pretty undrinkable. I tasted none of the Oolong base. Very overpowering/conflicting flavors, and as I stated, it had a taste to it that I cannot for the love of me put my finger on. Almost chemical? Unfortunately, this had been one of those “read the description and buy” teas. Wish I had been able to sample it first, as I wouldn’t have wasted my money.
Had to throw it out.

Started brewing loose leaf tea about seven years ago. Excited to share my experiences and learn more from everyone on here!

I’ve found I Prefer:

Oolong Teas
White Teas
Green Teas
Black Teas
Flavored White Teas
Flavored Black Teas (depending on the base tea)
Flavored Oolong Teas
Certain Herbals/Tisanes

I’ve found I Dislike:

Bitterness/Astringent Teas
Strong Floral Teas
Fruit Tisanes (at least hot)

Matcha and Rooibos teas tend to be hit or miss with me. I guess it depends on the tea and my mood.

That being said, I’ll give anything a shot!

When I’m not brewing/sipping tea, I’m usually reading, listening to music, working, or in the summer, kayaking/camping/hiking! I also enjoy a good movie now and then. I’ve got quite the collection going. It almost rivals my tea collection! ;)

I’ve only just returned after quite some time away – Steepster stopped working for me in 2013 and I FINALLY remembered this password and was able to get back on here in 2017. But I’ve been drinking tea all along the way!

Happy steeping!
