Rather than being a deep shade of green, the dry leaf was incredibly pale in color. I've never seen a Japanese tea that looked quite like this.
Sugarglider from Bitterleaf Teas is a naturally dian hong, making it a great choice for those who don't usually enjoy black tea.
Buttery and soft with hints of a vanilla and hyacinth, this Shan Lin Xi from Zhao Zhu hit the spot. I couldn't stop smelling the dry leaves!
I couldn't resist when Grace & Green offered samples of their organic matcha. In this post, I'm comparing three different grades.
Wenshan Mist was mellow with subtle hints of smoke. It would be an excellent choice for those that are not fans of grassy green teas.
Rama Lama Bulang shou puerh might just have the catchiest tea name ever. It was a smooth yet full-bodied and offered plenty of complexity.
