  • Spiritual Awakening from Diksha-T
    Although not one for yoga or meditation, to which this blend is suited, I do like to relax – so I have found myself a quiet corner to give Diksha-T’s second blend a try – Spiritual Awakening. I open the pack, and instantly I get hit with an amazing fragrance – jasmine, lavender, and rose being the dominant notes.

  • Review: Cameron Tea Alishan Jin Xuan Oolong, Premium Grade
    Essentially a lighter, more floral counterpart to Cameron’s other Alishan, this Jin Xuan oolong is incredibly aromatic, smelling strongly of clover honey and even of cinnamon. While arguably less complex than its warmer companion, it is still plenty complex and not merely a flowery bouquet. A medium-roasted Dong Ding comes to mind when drinking this tea’s liquor, though it still harbors less of a full-bodied, fruity, and mildly savory composition in favor of a sweeter… ... read more
