Discovered I am out of milk after making this. Sad to not have a milky rooibos tonight. It is still yummy on its own.

drank Pomegranate Oolong by Harney & Sons
205 tasting notes

I had to drop of a return to UPS and my favorite tea shop is right next door, so naturally I had to go in :) Just to window shop. Right. Picked up another ounce of the delicious peach oolong they carry and grabbed some of this to try. So glad I did. I purchased it loose leaf.

It’s very nice and tart with the pomegranate flavor. The oolong beautifully expanded in my Teaze. I should have taken a picture. Next time. Like the peach oolong, I really thing this would be amazing iced. I’m going to have a lot of fun this spring/summer :)

BTW, my sissy just joined Steepster!! You should follow her. Her name is Anna. She sends me tea and brings me tea when I see her. Gotta love it!!

Looking for her now!

Sandy'sCuppa

Just found her! Following :)

I don’t care much for this one, though Mom likes it a bunch. But I love the way it expands! Never tried it iced. Maybe that would be better for me.

Em

Awesome! Thank you guys for following her :) Wanted to give her a good Steepster welcome. Nicole, isn’t it pretty? I love that about oolongs like this. I really think it will be amazing iced.

drank Cardamom Pu-erh by Numi Organic Tea

I think I’ve found another purse tea. Earthy pu-erh and cardamom are a perfect blend for a cold winter afternoon. A great bagged tea.

this sound like something i’d like!

Does anyone actually still watch SNL?? At my parents house, absolutely nothing on TV, playing with the on demand, now watching SNL. Who are these people?

Anywho, tried this tea today at a coffee house in my hometown. Despite the fact that the water was way too hot (so hot it took 30 minutes to cool enough to drink – wish I was kidding) this tea was delicious. No bitterness and wonderful peach flavor. I think it would be great cold. I may have to get some to make iced tea. It would be awesome.

Nicole

That is my main drawback with buying teas in coffee shops. They always seem to be so hot you can’t drink them for a long time.

You can’t have the hop if you don’t have the hip.

Soooo glad I purchased this tea. It is everything I had hoped for. I love the blend of ginger and vanilla with a light note of coconut. Now I really want some Thai coconut curry noodle soup. Too bad I don’t have any curry paste or coconut milk right now. Time to go grocery shopping.

“Green Tea with Thai Flavors”? What a name!! Hahahahaha :)

gmathis

Is the soup recipe online somewhere?

ashmanra

Is this the tea that is sold under the name Bangkok as a loose tea? I think it is.

Alphakitty

Yeah, this is the same tea as Bangkok. They used to sell it bagged under that name too (I have a pile of empty tins!) but for mass market appeal they changed it.

Em

gmathis, here’s the recipe: http://chefmichaelsmith.com/recipe/thai-coconut-curry-soup/. It is so delicious. I leave off the fish sauce and lemongrass.

Good to know that Bangkok is the same. I figured it was.

gmathis

Thanks. That looks easy enough for me to handle!

Nicole

Ooo… that soup must be tried.
