9 Tasting Notes

Decent tasting, but I wasn’t a fan of the fact that there was already sugar, etc. added to the matcha.

The first looseleaf tea I ever received as a gift. I adore this blend, and it makes me think of good friends and good times. Unfortunately now that the Tea Emporium has closed up shop and I used the last of my stash, it will have to live only in my memories. It was a truly great berry blend, though, with a delightful pink tone to the water once steeped.

Probably one of the best blends sold by The Tea Emporium — well balanced and refreshing. Smells amazing and always gets compliments from guests.

I have so many good memories associated with this tea, and really like that it isn’t too fruity despite the strong peach scent it gives off when dry.

There is definitely a strong taste of ginkgo in this tea. It is the major note, and blends nicely with the papaya. I like this tea, but it’s not my favourite of the Tea Emporium’s flavoured green blends.

Not a big fan of this one. I adore Darjeelings most of the time (one of my favourite black tea varieties) but this one is so lacklustre. I still have most of the package that I bought years ago. It just doesn’t have that characteristic flavour I was looking for.

Decent, but not my favourite mate tea. I found it a little too bitter, and some of the flavours didn’t come through so well.
