Shui Jin Gui Wuyi Oolong is an oolong from Wuji Mountains, picked in the fall season of 2011. This tea is from Verdant Tea, an online tea seller. Verdant has some unique teas teas – mostly unflavored but some seasonal blends as well. All high quality.

Orange Brulee is an oolong blend featuring caramel and creme flavoring with orange. This tea is from Della Terra Teas, an online tea seller of very interesting tea blends. You know, they need to do more oolong blends. Before I purchased this tea I was looking over my oolong collection – all floral with a hint of a fruit. I decided to try this one as the caramel elements in this tea sounded unique to me! DRY LEAF: The oolong tea is in large, but tight dry blobs accented with orange peels and cute squares of caramel. Love this pic! <3 … Continue reading, hoot!
Orchid Blend is a berry flavored gaba oolong from Physique Tea, an online seller of bagged slimming and detox teas.

Lots of tea bits that help with PMS, digestion, and stress! DRY LEAF: Mmm, smells like tasty sweet fruit with a slight zesty herbal smell! I love the smell of this tea!

Flowery Pineapple Oolong is a Wen Shan Bao Zhong oolong flavored with freeze dried pineapple. This tea comes from Butiki Teas. This tea is delicious and one of my favorites.

So I ordered more. Samples FTW! DRY LEAF: Chunky presentation here with the large lumps of oolong and bulky pineapple bits. Very nice! STEEPED: As I poured the tea from my … Continue reading, hoot!
Vanilla Orchid is a huang jin gui oolong flavored with vanilla. This tea is from DavidsTEA, an online loose leaf tea seller. What a morning! I have so many teas to try. I have a “try me” tupperware full of tea with more on the way. I recently did another DavidsTEA review, but the blue packaging and promise of creamy tea screamed at me to try it. I tried to talk myself out of it – I have a couple fun fruity blends and pu-erhs waiting, but no – Vanilla Orchid won. DRY LEAF: Tight lumps of dark green oolong. … Continue reading, hoot!
Jade Blend is an silky oolong tea with melon, strawberry and cucumber flavors. I received this tea from Physique Tea, an online seller of bagged slimming teas. This is 1 of 3 teas I got from Physique, Jade Blend I was looking forward to the most as I don’t see many melon cucumber teas out there. I really dig melon teas! Packaging was very nice ^_^ Hey USPS and UPS – see that, my tea is FRAGILE! Too many times I’ve had them throw my tea packages around. Literally! I’ve had tea packages tossed over the fence or smashed through my mail … Continue reading, hoot!
