This is an interesting one that TastyBrew sent a bit of to try with that amazing package – thanks again! I’ve tried one other bamboo tea and one other lychee tea. I have NO idea what lychee is supposed to be like, but to me both of them tasted like how plastic smells, if that makes sense. So I can think of better things to be drinking! I had no idea what time/temp to steep this one at, since it is bamboo that can steep pretty hot but also green tea. Dry, the leaves smell like dill pickles! What? The last gulp kind of tasted that way. This one is different anyway, but I don’t actually find it terrible.

ETA: I’m just now reading tasting notes and it seems others have noticed a pickle flavor too!

Holy, what a weird tea! Lychee, by the way, tastes very much like a large, sweet grape to me. I once bought a huge amount with a friend from an Asian grocery store in Calgary, and we ate them all that night… and were sick the next day from all the fruit. :$

A big ole grape! Good to know! :D

Heh. Well, prickly grape. It has an outer shell that’s prickly, and it comes off easily.

The inner fruit looks like an eyeball. I’m not a fan… :)

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
