Buttered Popcorn Tea. That is what this lush tea could also be called. I had it iced today, and it was just lovely. Slightly sweet and creamy goodness. Toasted coconut, yum. I am going to get this GM sample deal everyone has mentioned. I would buy this tea again!
234 Tasting Notes
Lemon myrtle and lemongrass are yummy in this. I drank this iced, just wonderful. Versatile being good both hot and cold. It’s good for one extra brew. The second brew, the lemongrass stands out more, and I used boiling water and brewed it for 2 minutes the second go. I think I might like the second brew more the the first brew! I would buy this again.
Refreshing and yes, sweet! I love the background of a kiss of sage with mint, it’s quite delightful! I usually don’t like chamomile, but it’s barely there, yet it’s nice. Another winner of herbal teas from TG. I made it iced, just the perfect relaxing tea on a sticky summer night before bed. I’m a fan. Next to try from TG is Pure Joy and Pure Happiness. Just loving their herbals!
I bought the 100g pack for only $4. What a deal this tasty tea is! I drank it iced, it was perfection. Amber liquor, tastes better than it smells. I have had more expensive houjicha, and this one still holds up! Great tea both hot and cold. I am a fan!
It is TG’s cheapest Japanese tea, and I got try a sample. I made the water hotter and brewed it longer than what’s on the package. After doing that, I had to change my review! This tea is very yummy once I changed that! It’s good for a second brew, too. I would buy again.
A nice breakfast blend tea. I usually prefer Irish Breakfast blends, because they seem to have more assam. I went out to try this blend. It will wake you up, nice strong flavor. Though I still prefer Irish, I don’t think I would buy this tea again.
A refreshing iced tea. I love the simple combination of mint and lemon verbena. I only had two bags I bought as samples. I don’t know if it’s worthy to buy again, but still a very nice tea.
On the bag, it said to use a scale to measure for the tea. But I looked on the website, and it said to use 2 heaping teaspoons per 8oz of water, so I did that. The tea itself is just beautiful with its layers of colors.
It’s an extremely light tea! The instructions of just 2 teaspoons doesn’t seem at all enough. I love elderflower in St. Germain liquor, not sure if I like it in tea. It’s so light though, it’s just background. Next time I brew it, I will add probably double the amount I used this time.
Am I drinking Good Earth Sweet & Spicy tea, right? That’s what Market Spice taste EXACTLY like. It’s more oily, but it’s Good Earth’s unknown sister I think. Still very good, but for the price, I’ll stick with Good Earth.
Richly flavored. Nice refreshing blend of lemongrass, honeybush, rooibos, and jamaica flower. Lots of citrus is there. Tart, as jamaica flower is always.
I only have had it iced, I think that’s the only way I would drink it. I am glad I tried it, I am looking forward to trying Rishi’s other rooibos teas. I don’t think I would buy it again since I feel the urge to add sugar. Still, a good tea.
When I stop at TeaG, I always get a tea to go, iced, to try yet another tea. I tried SSD today, and it was tasty. It was sweet, light in strawberry flavor, and had a rhubarb like tartness to it. It has a caramel finish, alittle burnt at the end.
I want to try all their strawberry teas to make a final judgment, but this one is nice.
I have seen this brand in Asian groceries and my local store, and I love jasmine so had to try it. This was just too much jasmine for me.
I think it’s more jasmine than green tea! It honestly tasted like drinking a perfume. I am learning I am not a fan of teas where it’s too floral.
I brewed it for 2 hours and it taste just like the restaurant now! I used 1 cup of tea, 8 cups of water, 1 T cardamon seeds, 2 star anise, and 3 cloves and a light simmer for 2 hours. Make sure to keep the water level in check, so it doesn’t reduce. You want to remain with 8 cups water. Once it’s done, I used a coffee filter with a strainer and put in a pitcher with a cup of sugar and lime juice (2-4 limes). Stir and serve over ice!
Affordable, a little too smoky for a sencha, had a musk to it. It just tasted off to me. It’s ok iced. I don’t think I would buy it again.
Very good Thai tea! I’ve had other brands, and this one is likable. It’s pumped with food dyes, which all of the real thai teas have. I haven’t had the Por Kawn brand yet, so I don’t know if this is truly the best. But my favorite local Laos restaurant used this brand, and I got addicted to it. I hate it with the condensed milk, I always added fresh lime juice instead.
I always threw in extra star anise, cardamon when I brew it, just taste better that way. Next time I brew it, I will do it the traditional method where you simmer it for 2 hours!
I got this tea to try it out. It was at a local Chinese grocery, and for $2 for 50g, I couldn’t pass up the deal! I have been wanting to try all the teas they got, since it’s a tastings of teas I could afford.
The package says you use boiling water, and can reuse the tea 8-10 times!
Ok, now how it tastes…I am not a fan. First taste made me gag. Second taste confirmed it, and I had to dump it all out. It has an overbearing smoky flavor that didn’t appeal to me. It tasted like rotten spinach. I guess I got what I paid for.
So yummy, spinach like. I think it’s thick, and lush. I, too, did the sample tasting, and it’s a fantastic trip! I recommend anyone to try it! I brewed it from 45 seconds to a 1 minute and didn’t become anymore bitter. Second brew, just as good, not as lush. Again, another winner from Den’s. I think of all the Senchas, this was my favorite. Though I’ve only tried three from the sampler. I am planning on trying them all!
You get what you paid for. It’s ok and good for the value of a $3 box of green tea. Would I buy this tea again? Nope. It’s bright green, yes, but the flavor just wasn’t there. Weak.
I agree with one reviewer that it is confusing! I tried a box. Would I buy it again? Not really. It was decent, but I couldn’t taste the matcha. I was interested in the blend, but I wasn’t sure it worked. Actually, I am still confused!
Lightly malty, as most assam to me seemed to be. It has a coffee effect to me. Excellent for that morning boost. I loved it iced. Really recommend coffee drinkers to try it if you been wanting to switch from coffee to tea. It’s very robust!
A very good Moroccan mint. I liked the blend, I absolutely loved it iced. Was like a mouth wash to me, in a good way! I prefer spearmint to peppermint, so this was perfect. It’s not a everyday tea for me.
I had this awhile ago, but I liked the green in it. I was used to having chai with malty black assam, that the green was a nice change. A light chai. I wish more companies used greens for their chai blends. I got this with a sampler pack, which I really recommend. It was fun going thru!
I tried this awhile back when I was getting into teas. It’s very cheap tasting and leaves much to desire from it. I would save the $2 and avoid it. It isn’t the worst tea, but it’s nothing really good about it. Very weak and not very good at all.
This and the black tea is what I order at Starbucks. I like both, but I think I prefer the green tea. As I wrote for the black tea, I prefer sweetener with this, too. I prefer teas that don’t need extra sugar. But for a tea on the go, this is decent.
