Culinary Teas - question?

Postby jodiklaus » Nov 2nd, '10, 15:23

Hi all! If I've put this in the wrong place please let me know. I wasn't sure where to go.

I recently purchased some tea from Culinary Teas and was wondering if any of you have tea from them? I'm wondering what you think about the quality/flavor? I purchased different flavored black teas and so far none of them seem to have much flavor. I primarily ordered for their Pumpkin Cream which tastes nothing like pumpkin! I'll probably mix it with a chai to use it up. I was thinking of trying some of their white and such because I like that they have 1-2 oz samples but before I order again I need some input.

THANKS!
Jodi

... there so many vendors out there, why reward them with more sales if you were not satisfied the first time around?

Lots of vendors have whites in sample sizes of 1-2 ounces.

Adagio, our Teachat host, has samples available for all their teas. A set of 4 white samples is $10, and in my experience the sample size is generous.

LOL, THANKS! The reason I was considering their white was because they offer alot of flavors. I'm a newbie tea drinker so right now I haven't acquired the taste for a original white or other teas for that matter. I'm trying to work my way up.

Honestly, I don't work for Adagio - I'm just a satisfied customer and Teachatter - but I need to add that Adagio also has flavored whites available as samples.

Another fan here. I recommend trying Adagio's samplers and working from there. I am not a big flavored tea drinker, but really like many of their pure whites, blacks and oolongs. The Fujian Jasmine Pearls are amazing IMHO.
