Still tastes good. I steeped it twice, although it was considerably weaker on the second steeping.

drank White Peach White Tea by Inko's

This one tastes a little weak and watery compared to the honeydew flavour. It does taste like actually peach juice has been added – I just think they could have added a little more.

The chicory root and the carob gave this a pleasent, almost coffee-ish scent when it was brewing. I couldn’t stop sniffing it!

It’s not the most flavourful chai, but it’s still good for something that’s a generic grocery store brand. You can definitely taste the cinnamon in it, although the chocolate is just the barest hint. I’ll try the next cup with milk like a real chai and see if that changes anything.

drank Japanese Treasures by Blue Teapot

This tea used to be my favorite but now that I’ve tasted the really good quality stuff I’m not as enamoured with it. The mix of green teas tends to get very bitter very easily and the strawberry flavour could stand to be a bit stronger. It’s still much better than the bagged stuff, and the flavour of the Genmaicha is particularly prominent.

drank Mango by Tea Desire

Not really thrilled with this one. The label says it’s supposed to be mango-flavoured but really all it tastes like is cheap quality black tea with some perfume added to it. I’ll finish the bag I got, but after that I think I’ll pass.

Naturally sweet and slightly fruity-tasting, the tea isn’t overwhelmed by the flavour of the rooibos.

Goes good with a splash of skim milk. A good, pleasent cup of tea to wake up to in the morning.

drank Mate by Blue Teapot
1572 tasting notes

This is my second time sampling yerba mate and it tastes…green (though not unpleasently so) and there’s a hint of nuttiness. It doesn’t give me the energy jolt that a black tea would, but this late in the day that’s probably a good thing. I don’t have much experience drinking yerba mate but this one seems pretty decent to me.

Second steeping for this one. I put it in the fridge overnight and had ice tea (unsweetened, for once) to drink this morning. It goes very well with something sweet-tasting like a cinnamon bun.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
