This was a basic lemongrass tea. It was good but needed a little something to either make it more lemony or zip it up somehow. The lemongrass flavour was a bit weak.

This certainly is an unusual green tea! If someone had made this tea for me without me seeing the package, I would say it was a sheng. Even the dry leaves look like sheng. Very dark and grey.

Brewed up it’s a bit smokey & earthy. There’s a bit of nutty in the notes along with black pepper that hits the tongue on the finish.

There’s only one tsp left of this so I’m putting it back in the box to let someone else try it out. Definitely an unusual tea!

This tea is all sheng to me.

Lol, it does sound like sheng!

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.

I’ve loved tea since I’ve been a kid. Back then it was Old King Cole black tea with milk in it. As the years went by I added in all kinds of teas and moved away from the blacks to more green, white,pu-erh rooibos,& herbal. Just recently I’ve started to enjoy a few blacks again along with oolong. Mostly I would just get my teas from the grocery store, Whole Foods, craft shows with small tea vendors, or when travelling. I did order online from a company years ago but only did the once. It was just in 2013 I joined Steepster and have started some online orders. Love love love Tealux but am hoping to try some different places.
