drank White Tea by Golden Moon Tea
236 tasting notes

This tea smells sweet dry and once brewed. The chrysanthemum gives it a little honey taste to it. I am not big on the floral musky taste of it. It was an okay tea, I probably preferred it plain. I didn’t bother to to rebrew, just wasn’t much a fan.

I used to drink the heck out of this, along with Stash’s sushi green tea. I used to love this tea, but now? It’s old news. It’s good for when you are just starting off, and it had its place in time. But I have had too many awesome teas to replace this old standby.

drank Darjeeling Tea by Golden Moon Tea
236 tasting notes

An enjoyable tea. I took a recommendation from Jacqueline of drinking this iced. That changes the tea for me, and makes it tasty in my eyes. I have only have had 2 different darjeelings in my life, so I wouldn’t really know much about Darjeeling. But from the other two, I didn’t enjoy them like this one. Though each darjeeling I drank have been so radically different from the other. This tea has a nice natural sweetness, like peaches maybe?

drank Pineapple Sencha by Den's Tea
236 tasting notes

I prefer brewing this like TG’s Green Coconut. I steep it at 180F for 2 minutes. I taste more pineapple. I have blew through my 2 oz bag QUICK! This is some good tea! :)

Be sure to try their other flavored senchas. At least, every one of them was surprisingly much better than I expected. Besides pineapple, my other favorite is his (fuji) apple sencha. If you ever order, you can simply request a sample of something you’d like to try at the comments section at the end of the order process. I’ve found they don’t mind those requests at all (so I’ve been able to try all of them and decide which I’ve wanted to get full 2oz of)!

Thank you for the recommendation! I absolutely love their teas, and that’s awesome they do that. I know I’ll be ordering from them soon, I am going through their tea quick.

drank Brown Rice Green Tea by Yamamotoyama
236 tasting notes

I tried this tea before I knew what tea was. It came off burnt and sour. I didn’t buy another genmaicha for years b/c of it. I think it was too toasty, coming off smoky. I did like Yamamotoyama teas years ago, but now, they are just mediocre to me.

drank French Breakfast by Golden Moon Tea

Smooth and wakes you up quick. If I were to have this tea again, I would need additions of milk and sugar. So that will lose points in my book. I prefer the Irish and English to this. It has a nice aftertaste.

drank Moroccan Mint by Golden Moon Tea
236 tasting notes

It was an okay tea. I don’t like gunpowder, I would of preferred a different green tea base. And the mint is strong, of course. I prefer lighter mints, with other flavors alongside it. It was refreshing iced. The gunpowderiness of it turned me off, but was good for something I wouldn’t really like!

drank Orchid Temple by Golden Moon Tea
236 tasting notes

Smells stronger than it tastes. The dry leaf made me think it was TGY. Not as strong as I would like it. The leaves are huge once unfurled. I resteeped it 3 times, stood up nicely too all steeps. Last steep was the best…mmm. A good tea, just wished it was stronger.

I got a sample for asking a recommendation for a lighter flavored jasmine tea. This tea is beautiful, and smells just like it tastes. It’s medium strength with jasmine. The tea itself was tasty and not flat. It makes for a great iced tea, too. A better jasmine tea I have had recently.

drank Imperial Formosa by Golden Moon Tea
236 tasting notes

I am over halfway through my sample kit. It’s a fun voyage! I started with the teas I was most excited to try first, now I am onto the ones I wasn’t sure. This tea seems woodsy, has some twigs in the mix. Roasted flavor is medium strength. It’s a bit earthy. I didn’t resteep since I am not crazy for it. Still made a nice cup.

Profile

Bio

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
