Strange tea, this.

It has a spicy note to it that reminds me of an herb I cook with, but I can’t put my finger on it. Oregano, maybe? But not quite as powerful as oregano.

Overall, it tastes like a light black tea. But it has an interesting vegetal quality that’s probably coming from what I think is the green tea or it could be
lemongrass.

There’s no added fruit flavorings that I can tell. No astringency. Only a slight bitterness from oversteeping since I left the leaves in my cup as I drank it.

I haven’t tasted anything quite like it before. Maybe it’s a custom blend?

If anyone knows what this tea is or where to find it, please message me! It’s driving me crazy that I can’t find any information on it! Also, if you’d like a sample to try for yourself, please message me! I have a limited supply, but I’d appreciate the help identifying it.

It’s not the best tea I’ve ever had, but it’s far from the worst. So, it’s getting a middle of the road rating from me.

Preparation

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!


My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.


I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
