Here’ Hoping Traveling Tea Box

Less than a tsp left of this one so I added it to less than 8oz of 195°F water for 2 min. The result is quite weak but I can see that there can be potential if I had put more leaf in. I’ll have to keep my eye on this tea shop.

Where is this tea shop located? I’ve googled to no avail.

Too bad that they only ship in USA.

This one is pretty tasty. I like that I can tell that it is a green tea and that the fruit flavor is certainly mixed in there. The flavor isn’t exactly mango but it isn’t exactly kiwi. If I think about it I can almost discern one or the other but they compliment each other well.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I love green tea and I love mint. There was a tea shop when I lived in Missouri that had (well, has) a delicious mint green tea that I kept in my stash. This isn’t quite that but simple and enjoyable. The mint is there, though not as strong as I’d personally like.

I cold-brewed the sample I took from another TTB. I thought it was refreshing, and the mint was pretty strong.

This is my add-on from their Holiday Kickstarter. I’m so happy to have this back in my stash. I did forget to stop at the 2 minute mark though.

This brews up as a very light liquid. This certainly is a grassy tea but in a tasty way.

I’m not 100% sure that this is the 2014 one but possibly as this was purchased from someone on here within a year or two. I do apologize that I cannot remember who this one is from, everything ends up in a ever growing bin labeled “try me!”.

This brewed up a light green-yellow. I did add sweetener which ended up bringing out almost a juicy texture/feel. This has a touch of grassy-ness to it and it’s dry. It makes for quite the enjoyable cup!

I usually shy away from unflavored black teas. This one isn’t your typical black tea. It’s calmer, if you will. There is some astringency but it’s not unpleasant. I also had sweetener ready to go but didn’t have to add it! I think I now know what “malty” is thanks to this tea. It is also quite smooth. Thanks for exposing me to this LiquidProust

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec
Cwyn

I got a sample of this with an order. Didn’t have the strength of more southern climate teas, nor the longevity but fine for a couple of steeps.

drank Majestic Mango by Island Essence

Holidays TTB I can drink this one without sweetener. The mango is sort of a tease, darting around under the black tea taste. That black tea component is a little too much for my personal taste so I tried the addition of sweetener. It muted the black tea taste but didn’t do anything for the mango flavors.

Bio

This small town girl is back home and loving it. The weather is cooler and the view is prettier! I am getting ready to start the adult chapter of my life which is terrifying!

I am happy to have found Steepster. It gave me a hobby that I could devote as much or little time as I could during school and I believe that it will continue to help grow that hobby as I now have more time to explore.

I still consider myself newbie to the world of tea. I am still in the process of trying just about everything but have come across a few favorites. So far the only thing I don’t care for is coconut.

Ratings:

1-49: Never getting again. Couldn’t drink the cup.
50-59: Finished the cup, but won’t get again.
60-79: Buy once in a while.
80-89: Will get more as soon as I run out.
90-100: Must not run out.
