Had this one last night and really enjoyed it. I could taste lemongrass. I don’t know about the bamboo or even what bamboo tastes like. It doesn’t have any artificial flavouring added either which makes it a plus for me. It’s hard to find herbal teas without some flavouring added.

This tea has such fantastic reviews but for me it’s just not working. I had this tea this morning and did a 2nd infusion; but each time all I got was a dark roast. I couldn’t pick up much of anything else. So back in the box this goes for someone who will appreciate it more than me. It’s just personal tastes but I’m really glad I got to try it out.

These black pearls are so cute. Makes me think of Pirates of the Caribbean. Arrrrr

This tea is a bit earthy, a little bit malty, notes of raisins, faint chocolate notes. A very good cup and I enjoyed it but it’s not for me. Still a great tea.

This green tea is okay but is a bit bland. Even the lemon is almost not there

What luck getting the TTB during the holidays. There’s no way I’d be able to sample so many teas in one week while I’m working. However, I’m starting to feel a bit overloaded on tea. I might have to take some samples out and spread it out a bit.

Anyway – about this tea! It’s pretty much what the name says: Rooibos and lemongrass. Nothing amazing but not bad either. It’s just okay and a bit on the bland side. Not a tea I would stock up on but it was nice trying it out.

Happy that you are getting to spend some quality time with the box. :))
I took quite a few out to try later. It was a little overwhelming.
Happy New Year!!!

Loved this one. Brewed 1 tsp, 185F, 8oz, 1min. It was grassy & sweet. There was a good seaweed & nutty taste to it. This is my kind of sencha!

Flavors: Grass, Nutty, Seaweed, Sweet

This teas is very sweet and cinnamon flavoured. I could taste cinnamon, apple & rooibos. Really quite delicious. It went well with my mandarin I was having. I don’t think I would buy any of this though because the artificial flavouring numbed my tongue a it. Why oh why do companies have to use artificial flavouring??? On top of being bad for everyone, they just don’t agree with me. I think there must be plenty of natural flavourings to work with.

Brewed this one gong fu. It was a good solid black tea. I enjoyed it but there’s nothing there to draw me back to it again. It became even better tasting at the end of the cup when it got cold and I could taste honey and malt.

I enjoyed this pu’erh but can’t remember the details of it as it was a couple days ago. I find with most pu’erh teas they just keep getting better and better on the later infusions. I brewed this one in my yixing pot but it imparted a bit of clay taste to it so I had to do some more soaking of my pot. I do remember this one being silky on the tongue with a decent apricot flavour.

Green teas are my favourite teas but I also enjoy: white, some herbal,rooibos, raw pu’erh, light oolongs, a little bit of black , and a little bit of ripe pu’erh. I have moved away from artificial flavourings and there’s hardly anything left in my cabinet with artificial flavouring or colours. It is mostly straight teas or tea blends.
