Our first box came wrapped in fancy tissue paper and everything! "Oooo!"
This box included samples of Rose Mist, Mim Special Summer Oolong, and Doomni Exotic Summer Oolong. I was a little surprised to be sent two oolong teas out of three.
My favorite was Rose Mist. It has luminous color with a sweet magical flavor. From the first whiff as you open the bag, you are transported to a fresh bed of roses interlaced with subtle strawberry and pomegranate notes. The brewed liquor is golden and luminous. It makes me think of a magical potion for a happily ever after. This tea flows softly over the tongue, filling the mouth with a fresh flavor. Its rosy sweet and velvety. This tea is excellent for easing you into a relaxing evening. Its low caffeine and high quality in every way.
Doomni i was not impressed with. This one was a bit flavorless for me. If anything, it mostly tasted bitter.
My second box included two flavors I had already recieved. This surprised me. I was also slightly disappointed. While I loved Rose Mist, Doomni was disappointing to see arrive again. After this box, I decided to sit down and post a few reviews. Hopefully, my next box will include a variety of teas of greens, whites, and blacks instead of being so oolong heavy. I like oolong tea very much, but I was under the impression the boxes were oing to allow me to sample a variety of teas from around the world. Hopefully, the next box will offer this.
I have purchased a few other flavors since my second box. Teabox was kind enough to send me three complementary samples with my order!!
Here are a few other reviews:
Winter Spice Chai
A cup of ginger/almond/cinnamon deliciousness; versatile blend!
Ganesh Himal Classic Spring Black
Would have liked more chamomile in the flavor profile
