17 Tasting Notes
I don’t love the smell, too earthy for my tastes generally but when steeped right I quite enjoyed it. Don’t forget it and over steep, it became bitter quickly.
I quite like this. I am partial to Jasmine tea. A few pearls right into my cup and I’m quite happy for two or three cups. It’s well balanced between the green tea flavor and the jasmine flavor.
This is truly great. I love Rooibos and Hina has blended some chili and guava with the rooibos and the description “Mexican Winter” is exactly what you get. It’s great when it’s cold out with a slight heat in your mouth from the chili. It sounds crazy but it’s well balanced and very flavorful without being overpowering. Just love it.
This is one of my favorite teas. Hina’s doesn’t quite smell like you would expect but the flavor is fantastic.
I drank this at PF Chang’s tonight. It’s OK. It started out earthly with light fruity flavors but as the pot sat the fruity began to take over in flavor. I don’t think that I live peach very much in my tea.
I didn’t care for this at all. It gets bitter far too easily and is very grassy. I prefer green teas a little less “earthy”.
I don’t normally drink black teas but tried this with breakfast this morning. I had it plain and love the full mouth flavor of it. I usually lightly steep teas but followed the directions using boiling water for 5 minutes and was granted a full flavor tea that was not bitter or overly strong.
I didn’t find the need for sugar or milk though I rarely drink my teas “English style” and I didn’t think this one needed it at all.
