190 Tasting Notes
had to up the score on this tea. i really like it more and more as I drink it more times. It is so interesting, and today I really really picked up on that smoky layer of the tea in the scent. It smells like smoke, which is very intense smell. That smoky layer of the smell is in the flavor a little, but not as intensely as in the aroma. This isn’t a grassy green tea, so I would say it would be good for newbies getting into better tea types, as well as tea lovers who just crave a good cuppa. :)
Thanks for the hookup from Stephen, i’ve received more of this tea! As I ran out a few weeks ago. This is such a great tea and I love to drink it.

do you know what is sad? When you get to the bottom of a tea tin and you realize this is your last cup of this tea. :( I had a enough left to make some iced tea, so I have about 32 oz. of blink bonnie iced tea to savor over the next few hours, until it is all gone. This tea tastes fantastic iced and a bit stronger than when brewed hot, which makes the tea taste wonderful. Brewed stronger, I can taste subtle nuances that I might not normally taste when hot.
MMMMM! That is all I can say for this tea right now. It tastes phenomenal. The aroma reminds me a bit of caramel sweetness,lemonade, and potpourri. I also smell an inkling of genmaicha, which smells a bit roasted and green. The taste is delicious. The flavor is green, and vegetal, but balances out the astringency from the tea and from the citrus very nicely. The tea glides smoothly in my mouth and leaves my mouth watering, craving more. I would definitely buy this one again, hands down.
