I don’t mind Goji Pop for sure,
it’s refreshing!

But I find fruit teas are usually not my favorite due to their sour-taste. I don’t know, maybe I’m crazy! I’ll try a little sweetener next time (and can’t wait to try the blazing strawberry!)

Iced

I too enjoy the summertime flavour of Gogi Pop…but my favourite tea for icing right now is The Blazing Strawberry.

Jenn

I love them both iced! Blazing Strawberry is particularly nice though.

Man why have I waited so long to try Blazing strawberry? Well.. probably because I’m moving as fast as I can out o fmy apartment before we get the apt building’s bedbugs/black mold. So far so good, but not enough time for tea, am I right? haha!

Jenn

It sounds like you have your priorities well in order. Get out of that place! There will be time for tea later :)

DaisyChubb

No worries, we’re out of there this weekend b^_^
At least work gives me time for tea. Work’s gotta be good for something. :)

Jenn

Good! I love your attitude about work. It can’t be all bad if there’s tea :)

I’m a little biased… this is probably my most favorite tea in the whole world and I never knew what it was until 2 weeks ago.

Basically, I always wondered why tea at the Japanese restaurants I frequent was so delicious and rice-y (is that a word? It is now.), but my green tea at home was, well.. bitter and green! I wanted the rice! But where, why, how?! D:

Thank you Steepster, because that is how I came across my favorite tea and bought it the very next day. I have it pretty much every morning at work. It’s tastes wonderful and perfect every time – needs no sweetener of course, that might ruin it in my opinion.

Anyways! For anyone who is a fan of the tea at your favorite Japanese restaurant, do yourself a favor and pick up this tea.

Daisy, how are you preparing this? I’ve been fiddling around with amount of leaf and steep times and I haven’t found the ideal yet. Sounds like you have.

So the first time I had this tea, I obviously steeped it for waaay too long. My friend’s mom just gave me a little bag of it to take home so I had no idea and steeped it for about 2 minutes, which I thought would be fine for a white tea.
So today I am sick and I felt like drinking the rest. I consulted www.steep.it and it reccomends 30 seconds for white tea. Oh!
haha So I gave it a steep and it is sooo much better this time.
That said, it’s still not my kind of tea. I like strong, unique flavours rather than floraly or jasmine type teas.

But hey, it’s warm, it’s calming, and it has a very lovely strawberry smell, so although there are a lot of distasteful reviews, I think this tea will be perfect for some people! Just not for me :)

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
