I loved how this one smelled right off the bat! The dry blend had a lovely citrus smell from the lemon peels!
Last week, I started my two-part series about Oollo Tea’s Classic Taster Set. I was excited to try the rest, so I am posting part two this week! I will be trying three rolled oolongs from Taiwan.
I was feeling nostalgic about Taiwan and Vancouver, Canada, so I decided to hit two birds with one stone and taste Oollo Tea’s Classic Taster Set. I realized the last time that I had Taiwanese teas was back when I was in Taiwan earlier this year!
Ending off the year with an oolong and two black teas. I admit, one big reason why these are the last teas of the year is because of their names: “Wow!” and “Chocolate Mar-TEA-ni”. They seem like fitting teas to end the year off with!
I came across Beautiful Taiwan Tea Company some time ago, and I fell in love with all the teas that they offered! I reached out to ask about shipping, but Paul, the owner, was kind enough to offer to send me some teas to try! The teas will be split into two posts: this one featuring a white, green, and oolong, and a later posting with only oolongs!
This is my second monthly box from Sips by. I have to say, I really enjoyed my first box because it gave me the opportunity to try some new brands. One thing I still like about the boxes is how the tea is sent in the brand’s own packaging, so you’re able to get a sense of the company. I think that that is a neat touch!

I came across Genuine Tea when I was looking for Canadian brands to try. I admired that the teas were ethically sourced, organic, and sustainable. I was very lucky that David, one of the co-owners, sent me some samples of their teas to try, and I really enjoyed them!

As much as I love my blend teas, I have been very interested in straight/single teas because I feel that in order to understand tea better, I need to be able to taste the difference between them. The best way to hone my tasting skills is to try straight/single teas! Continue reading “LH Tea Farmer Family’s Yu Lan Xiang, Mi Lan Xiang, Fenghuang Mi Lan Xiang and Da Wu Ye | Tea Review”
Description: “There’s a flavour complexity to the Wuyi oolong giving roasted notes, a natural fruit-like sweetness and a hint of spices. Flavoured simply with blood orange, this tea is best enjoyed pure.” – via Amoda Monthly Box
When I think of India, I tend to think of black teas from Assam and Darjeeling, so I have to admit, I am pretty excited to try three different oolongs! Two are blends, and one is a straight tea. Since oolongs can vary based on production, I am curious to see how these will taste.
