I steeped this for less time than before (4 min) and now I can taste the green tea a little better.

looks at the ingredients list Apparently there’s also supposed to be lemongrass in here somewhere, although I can’t taste it.

drank Chai Spice by Stash Tea Company

Drank this with milk this morning.

calebcherry

do you mean you just creamed the tea with milk or you warmed milk with the teabag?

Jillian

No, I just added some skim milk after it was done steeping. I’d like to do a traditional-style chai one of these days but I either lack the time or am too lazy. ;)

Great way to have it, with milk. Good choice.

Jillian

Thanks. :) Most chais are too harsh for me to drink plain, although I try to be careful not to drown the flavour either when I add stuff.

This is nice and refreshing for when I’m studying in the evening without giving me a huge caffein jolt.

drank Russian Caravan by Tea Center
1714 tasting notes

Specifically Tea had to order this in from their supplier, The Tea Center, because they don’t keep it in stock.

This tea smells and tastes and lot smokier than I was expecting given that it’s a blended tea. It wasn’t bad but it smelled like it would be almost on par with some straight Lapsang Souchongs I’ve seen. The addition of skim milk dampened down the BBQ flavour somewhat, so it still made an enjoyable morning cuppa.

Preparation
Boiling

BBQ?!?! Someone offered to swap me some Russian Caravan today for my sample of Black Dragon Pearls, but now I’m having second thoughts. Are you sure about that thumbs up? Yikes!

The flavoured rooibos wasn’t too tart like I find certain blends are, and there was the distinct but not over-powering sweet-almond taste of marzipan present. It makes a great evening cuppa.

On the one hand, I’ve never liked marzipan, so it makes me afraid to try marzipan tea. But on the other hand, it’s been several years since I’ve tried marzipan, so maybe this year I should give both of them a shot? I’m seeing a lot of marzipan tea being logged.

drank Lemon Ginger Snap by Teas Etc

No bad, though the green tea is rather hard to taste. The ginger isn’t as overpowering as I feared it would be and the lemongrass adds a nice accent to it.

drank Green Tea with Citrus by Lipton

Urgh, tastes like watery Five Alive – isn’t there supposed to be tea in this somewhere??? Unfortunately it was a choice between this and Pepsi so I took the lesser of two evils.

Iced

drank Yunnan Jig by Adagio Teas

I re-steeped the leaves from this morning (5.5 minutes, no milk). This cup came out a bit weaker than the first, but considering the strength of the flavours in this tea, that wasn’t really detrimental.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

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!)
