3 Tasting Notes

I tried the green tea today. First steep was about 2:30sec with pre-boiling water. The taste is meh. Could be worse, but could certainly be better. A bit bitter. Next brew I’ll try 2 min and see how it goes. The smell isn’t bad though. I just wish I had the choice where I shop to buy a 20bag box instead of the 40bag box I got.

For about a year this has been my go-to black tea, and I’m standing by it strongly still. I drink it almost every morning and never get sick of it.

It is smooth and full-flavored. Careful not to over-steep it. About 4 min seems perfect, then take out the bag. I drink it black. Use water just about to boil. Also, it is key not to use too much water, or else the flavor can be diluted, so if you have a large mug, maybe don’t fill it completely.

Very smooth. Great tea.

Drank it black once, and I would buy it if I see it again. Has a distinct flavor and smell to it, hard to describe, but I really, really liked it a lot.
