drank Gojiberry Green by Bon The Place
506 tasting notes

Noticed a citrus-y or eucalyptus-type aroma in the dry leaf. Resulting brew has a bit of a burnt-bitter note which masks the other flavours. Goji berry flavour is sweet with a savory edge. Mouthfeel is medium to light in thickness. Green tea has a bit of a metallic taste. Hint of grapefruit taste

Flavors: Metallic

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 8 OZ / 248 ML

drank Ginger Lemongrass by Tea Forte
506 tasting notes

1.5 tbsp for 375 ml of water

As an herbal infusion, this is very plain-tasting to me. The licorice certainly does add a nice element of interest. I am not a fan of lemon-grass as a feature ingredient as I don’t like the aftertaste. I like the ginger in this one- adds a good level of spice that I can actually feel. The resulting brew has a bit of a brothy thickness to it. I can hardly taste any mint. A stronger mint flavour would definitely be invited- I think it would compliment the profile quite nicely.

Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 5 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

drank Chai Guarana by DAVIDsTEA
506 tasting notes

May benefit from a longer infusion time. I can taste the anise. Overall, flavour is dilute and slightly thin-tasting. Mouthfeel on the aftertaste is slightly reminiscent of grainy texture. Nice cinnamon flavour, balanced well with other flavours. Slight peppery spice but not spicy. Something in this brew reminds me of strong pu-erh flavour.
