Please read first part, posted on December 7th, 2012. Procured myriad tea samples at their fall Tea Tasting event and decided to write a quick review of each. To order visit

The teas are listed randomly:
African Fruit Bowl offers warm tones and a slight fruit flavor. The tea particulates are extremely small so use a fine mesh strainer or sludge will form at the bottom of the cup.

Genmaicha toasted rice add an interesting hue to the damp reedy green tea. RECOMMENDED

Grand Keemun is robust and flavorful but not forceful.

Peaches & Cream is a gentle white tea with virtually no peach flavor.

Russian Sweet is a subtle sugary lighter version of my favorite Russian Smoky.

Bliss is mildly twiggy with a faint menthol essence.

Lung Ching Dragonwell supplies a woodsy slightly grassy tea with a hint of bitterness.

Effeminate is pleasant, green, calming, and provides a dose of St. John’s Wort.

Black Currant smells wonderful but is blandly seasoned.

Yunnan is bitter, strong, and slightly smoky. However, it is wonderful with a dash of sugar and milk added to mellow the brew.

Part III is still being consumed…

I do love a cuppa!!
