The Village Tea Company delivers again! The vanilla flavoring goes very well with the already-sweet rooibos. Smooth and relaxing!

drank Jasmine Pearls by The Tao of Tea

F. I over-steeped this one by 1.5 mins. I wanted 4 instead of 5.5mins, but the tea still came out well! I’m not detecting any astringency… just that rich jasmine taste! Hopefully the second steep is flavorful, despite slightly over-steeping the first.

Ok. AMAZING. I don’t know what my problem was last time, complaining about this tea being weak. I used the same ratio – 1tsp/8oz, and it had full, delicious flavor! Gotta try more darjeelings now!

drank Barley Tea by Dong Suh

Novel, like many other Korean teas. I got this as a gift from a Korean friend, and it’s fun to have every so often. Apparently I need to try it iced!

drank Corn Tea by Dong Suh
31 tasting notes

As others have said, this is definitely a different tea. I find it novel and tasty, but yeah, not a staple. I got this tea as a gift from one of my Korean friends. I’ve also had Korean barley tea and brown rice tea. Apparently the Koreans love making tea out of everything.
In summary: a fun/novelTEA (pun obviously intended). Tastes like popcorn =)

Boiling

My girlfriend got this tea for me when she was in Turkey =) Yum! I love trying different tea, and this one is definitely unlike anything I’ve had before. The tea almost tasted/felt like it was mentholated, but it obviously isn’t. I think this tea would be great for a cold. It’s also great for relaxing for bed, since it doesn’t have any caffeine! I’m glad to have this one in my cupboard!
