The price is hard to pass, I forgot how much I paid, but it was a great price for Ti Kuan Yin. It’s doesn’t have the depth as the teas with a heftier price tag. But drinkable. A little musky, golden brew. I don’t think I would buy, but it’s still good. If you are in a pinch, makes a good iced tea.

drank Cream Earl Grey by Culinary Teas
264 tasting notes

I feel this black tea is very astringent, I never use boiling water to brew. It’s a good cream earl grey. I was spoiled by having another, so I compared it to that. I drank it with rice milk and sugar. Very tasty treat. Served it over ice, too. Though I feel I need sugar with it, so I won’t drink it much.

drank White Ginger by Golden Moon Tea
263 tasting notes

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!

drank Yanagi Bancha by Obubu Tea

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
264 tasting notes

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?

drank Sencha of the Wind by Obubu Tea
264 tasting notes

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
264 tasting notes

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
264 tasting notes

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.

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.
