Cold Brewed in the Fridge for 8 hours with the Travel Buddy. Cut open two pouches.
Trying a full 24 hours tomorrow. Light and refreshing as an ice tea. Still taste the undercurrents of the jasmine with only an 8 hour brew time.

Prepared in a medium sized yixing pot, enough for 1 full cup. Tea has floral scent prior to brewing, which gives way to aromas of fruits. Amber liquor leaves a sweet taste in the back of the throat.

If I could find this blend without the licorice in it, I’d be crazy about it; unfortunately, it’s a sour/dirty mid-note that’s really jarring. Still, this is a really impressive balance of so many different flavors, and it is very, very foody.

ETA about three hours later: I am pretty sure this is responsible for my splitting headache. Never have done well with licorice.

Honestly tastes like the smell of pipe-tobacco. Delicious.

First produced by Menghai after the name change to Xishuanbanna Menghai. Production started in ‘97. This specimen part of a tong. Slightly loose, and damp ’shu’ beeng cha. Quick rinse and first two brews were very dark due to presence of loose leaves. Subsequent brews mellowed out, with hui gan appearing, and slight ‘dust’ notes. Beeng has been opened to air and ‘re-vitalise’.

We purchased this back in February, and to our surprise the flavor is already falling off. We store it in an air-tight tin from Mariage Freres so we are not doing anything odd. It just demonstrates that good tea has a finite shelf life. If you like it, drink it all before it goes south.

A nice spice scent prior to steeping. While and after steeping it’s a slight spice with almost a citrus hint or two. Looks like a pale black or herbal tea when it comes to the coloring. I kind of thought this would be spicier but am glad it isn’t. A nice change from the over the top and dark spiced bagged teas. I like this one – glad I got it!

It’s an average green tea. Nothing strong and I’m probably not getting major health benefits, but it’s tea. Good enough.

I had a really hard time getting this tea to where I liked it. I finally settled on 1 tsp leaf to 8oz water. Water should be at 165F.

Exactly the same experience I had. Thankfully I found that balance on my second attempt. Now I love it [with a dab of honey].

I loved this when I first tried it months ago, and it’s still tasty. Not as great as I remembered, but I love the very vibrant dried apricot taste.

it’s a fine office tea. I agree with some of Jason’s comments, but I love the earthiness. This isn’t the greatest Rooibos tea around, but it gets the job done. It doesn’t hurt that it brings back memories of my trip to South Africa.

the spice blend is addicting. I’ll be sad when my package of loose leaf tea runs out.

You can sure smell the Apricot prior to steeping. While steeping you can almost smell what seems to be a hint of chocolate even tho I know it’s not…and maybe even a very little bit of fresh wood or bark even…but just a pinch. After Steeping it’s more of a earthy and apricot-esque smell. Nice. The coloring is a rich reddish-brown. The taste is a great blend of Honeybush and Apricot – neither too overpowering. Very pure tasting.

It’s not bad. The strawberry flavor is very subtle. It has a bit of a floral taste to it. I don’t think I’d drink it all the time, but it’d decent.
