Very pleasant smell, maybe a bit too strong on the Jasmine side. Nice color, a bit light in color, but a very slightly sweeter taste for a green in my opinion.

Reminded me of a Mocha/Latte, but watered down. Very aromatic, rich color, and pleasant taste, Good way to fool the coffee club that your in.

drank Gen Mai Cha by SerendipiTea

First thought when drinking this, Horseradish and Chinese Mustard. Odd taste, cant say I favor it, but it was something that was oddly pleasing, something different then that dirty water they call coffee. Will have to try again sometime.

Reminds me of the old Broadway standard – You say “Gen Mai Cha”, I say “Lawn Clippings”, let’s call the whole thing off!

Very aromatic, slight hint of a yerba I had a few days back. Flavors not too strong, in fact barely noticeable unless you over brew it. Nice color however.

Reminds of Apple Cider, just not as sweet, which is always a good thing. A little too much Hibiscus however, and then cinnamon, while Im not a huge fan, is just subtle enough to make me want to have another cup or two. Great color to it as well, and tastes great by itself, truly a lone warrior.

drank Yerba Mate by SerendipiTea

First Yerba Mate Ive had so not sure what to say about it, I will say this, it is definetly a different taste, close to a Black Tea but somewhere more near an Earl Grey, or so I would think, with my little experience with it. The Local Tea House, Manzanita News and Espresso has quite the variety of bagged and loose leaf teas, so I will have to try some of each. Overall I liked the Yerba Mate, didnt know what to expect though, so I will write a better review later.

It’s always difficult to write something about something when you’re new to it. I’ll agree with you – it’s definitely different. It’s something I’m trying to become more familiar with as well.

drank Earl Grey by Xanadu Fine Teas

Probably one of the better Earl Greys I’ve had, its not too strong but enough to say “Hey Im here inside your water”. Nice smell too. Again I drink my tea plain, so it might be better with some milk, or a bit of creme.

drank White Ambrosia by Tea Forte

I drink my tea straight, no milk, no sugar, no honey, and this was a bit too much for me, the coconut was a tad bit over powering, if I had wanted a pinata colada I would have went to a bar.

drank Flora by Tea Forte

As Im not a fan of cinnamon teas, my review should be regarded as having a predisposition, but I really didnt care that much for this one in general, just wasnt for me.

drank Citrus Mint by Tea Forte

I love this tea, its sooo good, especially on a cold night after boredom has set in, and all you have to do is talk to people on facebook. The mint is an excellent combo with the citrus, the aroma is very nice.
