I’ve been waiting patiently for the SoHo store to get this in loose, and it’s finally here! I picked up two ounces just to test it out—I tend to buy most of my bulk iced teas from H&S, since 6 ounces are all of $8. This seemed like a possible for the iced tea rotation—genmaicha is what we usually make, the bf loves strawberry, I love coconut. What could go wrong?

Well, honestly, the genmaicha part! There were no popped rice kernels in my bag, and while there’s a slightly toasty flavor it’s not as strong as I would like.

Thankfully, the strawberry/coconut combo is very nice. The coconut is light and sweet, and the green base seems particularly airy to me, bordering on a white. In fact, it reminds me of Coconut Creme a bit! The strawberry is a nice fruity pop, not too strong or artificial. And the vanilla makes it wonderfully creamy.

I think mixed 60/40 with our regular genmaicha, this will be a total winner. As it is right now it’s a nice fruity blend, but nothing special—I think with a nutty hit it will really shine.

According to their website it doesn’t exist in loose leaf :(

For some reason a lot of their teas that are bagged you can get loose in the physical stores. It often takes a while (I am still waiting for loose Blue Ginger!), but it’s nice to be able to get small amounts.

Yea, I was keen on $12 for the sachets, when I don’t know if I’ll like it. It sounds delicious. I’m looking for other teas from them to make the shipping worthwhile.

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
