drank White Ginger by Golden Moon Tea

I’m not a ginger fan when it’s by itself, like fish sauce. So I knew I wouldn’t like this tea much. Still gave it a chance. Underneath the ginger flavor, the white tea was just ok. Just not inlove with it. Not bothering to rebrew…

This is the second Nepal tea I have had, and I love it! Very rich tasting, love the mouth feel. I only drank my sample hot, but would make an excellent iced tea. I will have to put this on my shopping list. Excellent black tea, smooth as silk! It has Darjeeling like qualities, with the lovely honey smell and taste. Nom!

I tried to rebrew, but I just couldn’t like this tea. It tasted one dimensional to me. Mostly twigs, like a kukicha, which I am not the biggest fan of either. To each their own.

drank Genmaicha by Obubu Tea

A very mild genmaicha. The rice flavoring is nice and lightly toasty. I prefer greener tasting, like Den’s Tea. I’ve been wanting to sample this, since the rice is different than other genmai based teas. Is this sticky rice?

Very light tea. Rebrews 3 times. It has a nice sweetness. Not as complex as I usually like, just straightforward tasting. I used up my whole sample, I might have liked the boiling brewing, since I think the warm water method didn’t make it strong enough for my tastebuds. It has a white tea lightness.

drank French Blend by English Tea Store

I got this tea from Culinary Teas, but it’s the same tea. It’s so refreshing. Love the floral sweetness it has. Very nice tea blend base. Love this iced, wonderful for a perk in the morning. It has a nice creaminess to it. I love Nilgiri iced, and with the flavoring, it’s perfection.

drank Oi Ocha by Ito En

I bought this on a whim at my local Japanese store. I was needing some caffeine for my ride home. It says it’s the #1 Japanese green tea. I agree with what another person said, it tastes like a Chinese green tea. I was surprised to see it’s a product of Thailand. It is refreshing, but I don’t think I would buy again.

drank Jasmine Tea by Fujian Tea

6 years ago, I would of thought this tea was amazing. Now? It’s a good tea when I’m watching my tea budget, which is now. I make an iced quart of tea for work off and on. The jasmine flavor is at a strength I like, not too overpowering where I can’t taste the tea itself. The tea itself is good, mild. Once I go through this tin, I probably won’t buy more unless I need to tighten my tea budget. For the price, you can’t find a better tea. The Asian grocer in my town seems to have a good turn around on this tea.

I prefer this brewed with the Standard method, not so think on the tongue. GREAT WITH SUSHI!

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.
