First of all I don’t drink very much green tea. That being said I really like this tea. This tea is mellow and nutty tasting. I like Adagio’s much better, but I bought this for use in a hotel room during vacation.

I hope to try more green teas in the future, but as I said I don’t drink much green as I prefer assam and yunnan tea. My wife likes green and this was her purchase. So, when I post a tasting note for green tea you have to take it with a grain of salt as my knowledge of green is very limited. As I drink more green teas I’m sure my tastes will change.

Now I’m being surprised by a tea bag. This is really a very good yunnan tea. It has that raisiny sugar smell and is brisk and robust. I wouldn’t put this tea on the level of a Rishi or LeafSpa yunnan, but it is really good. I bought this to take on vacation and decided to try one. I found a very good price at T.J.Maxx.

Ahhh, this is what I needed this morning. This tea is brisk, robust, malty, and chewy. This tea is a strong and hearty blend of assam teas.

drank Invigorate Assam Black by Treleela

This is a brisk, robust, and malty tea. That being said I still miss the underlying nuances that I get with very good assams. The tea has a very clean taste without chewy notes that I like. I’m so hard on doing notes on assam teas. I guess I’m still down about The Simple Leaf closing. I’m going to miss Mountain Malt. This is a good assam, just not a great one. I’m still looking.

drank Essence of Assam by 52teas

I’m very low on Assam teas in my cupboard and I usually drink a stronger tea in the morning. This one was a pleasant surprise though. It’s mild and mellow while still being chewy. I’m still not sure if I would classify this as a morning or afternoon tea.

I pulled this tea out quickly as I needed to have something nice after the ceylon tea I just drank. This is one of my favorite bagged teas. I’ve been drinking this one for years and I always enjoy it.

drank All Day Tea by Brewhaha

I couldn’t find much out about this tea except that its all Ceylon and from the UK. I found it at T.J. Maxx marked down to $2, and thats for 50 bags (4 cents each). Its an ok breakfast tea and the taste is typically Ceylon, no bells or whistles that I could find. The tea is only slightly bitter and does have some astringency. I think any steep over 2 minutes could make this tea undrinkable for me. I have no intention of drinking another cup of this tea, I’m going to take it to my wife’s sister who makes iced tea from Walmart brand tea.

This tea is very different than what I usually drink. The tea is pale yellow in color with tiny white hairs floating in it. It smells floral and the taste is very light and slightly sweet. Its a very nice tea for relaxing and contemplating life. Its not a tea I would drink every day, but its nice and interesting.
