Another pretty good bagged tea from Choice. It doesn’t seem to have quite the bite of an Assam, but it’s fairly strong, and has a decent smoothness to it…not as smooth as a Ceylon, but still pretty nice. I’ll have to drink it more to give a better review, but I do like drinking it.

Reminds me of Lipton, makes me anxious. Not recommended, crappy.

Good Darjeeling, nice and smooth. A good light black tea for the afternoon.

Maybe I just don’t like bancha hojicha, and it’s not Choice’s fault, but this is actually the only tea that I’ve ever really disliked. I’ve tried it a good 3 or 4 times. I’ll give it another shot or two, maybe my tastes will change over time.

Solid bagged green tea. I prefer loose leaf green teas, but I choose this one often when I’m grabbing a tea bag. I’m a big fan of grassy Japanese teas, and I generally go with this one or the Stash green tea if I’m looking for bagged green tea.

One of my favorite strong Assam teas. Gets me going in the morning.

Jamming on this little ditty, this cold snowy Monday morning. I’ve always enjoyed this one. Mint and the mate blend well together. Gives you that extra boost you may need to get your work week started. Plus its a quick one to prepare when you are up against deadlines. If you enjoy mint teas, I’d recommend this one. Happy Monday everyone!

This has a very strong flavor, with ginger and licorice being the primary things I notice. I really like both flavors, so I really like this tea!

I really love this tea. I tried it at an event, where there weren’t many options; I usually am not a huge fan of peppermint teas, but the liquorice complements the peppermint perfectly. I drink this straight, with no sweetener or milk.

I really like this peppermint tea because of the strong peppermint taste I get from it. It’s not a wimpy, mild, watered down peppermint. The taste is solid. Perfect for when I’m having tummy troubles. Helps to settle my stomach nicely. I always like to have peppermint tea on hand and this brand suits me just fine.

A great dinner tea, I drank it piping hot because as it cooled it got more bitter and dry. No sweet undertones, just mossy and toasty.

Okay, I owe this tea an apology. It turns out that the awful taste that I first experienced was not the tea’s fault – instead, it was lovely Santa Barbara’s water, which is all sorts of foul tasting.

I had a different tea, which I knew should not have tasted oily and evil, but did. So I switched from the tap water to bottled filtered stuff to brew tea. And magically, the tea stopped tasting awful.

It’s still bagged tea so the quality is nowhere near what a loose hojicha would be, but it’s decent, and caffeinated, and doesn’t make me want to gag because it tastes like sweet oil.

Seriously, what the heck is up with the tap water here?

hmm maybe it’s the drought?

This is the weirdest hojicha I’ve had. It doesn’t taste like hojicha.

I’m currently visiting a friend in Santa Barbara and we went grocery shopping. He asked what I have for breakfast, and I responded – naturally – “tea.” The selection of tea wasn’t great – mostly bagged, though I later discovered there was some loose stuff toward the front but by that point I was fine with the lone box of Choice I grabbed. I’d had good luck with their bagged tea in the past, but this one was… ugh.

I’m not sure what was wrong with it. It just tasted so off. It was oily, and did not taste pleasant at all. Hopefully I can sneak into a store later and get something better. And a strainer – the man does not own one.

A nice English Breakfast tea though I’m not sure I’ll make this my standard. I’m not a great fan of the plastic mesh pyramid bags (I prefer something that decomposes).

Smells interesting. Like a swamp murder. Tastes like dragon piss. I tried it black, with sugar, with milk, with milk and sugar, with Jameson, and came to the conclusion that I am not a Lapsang Souchong girl. Banished it to the top of the refrigerator because it was stinking up all the other lovelies in my tea nook. Has since been relocated to the trash bin.

My green tea of choice. Absolutely amazing.

The aroma is a earthy, sea weed like smell. However it’s not too overpowering. It’s just right. As it goes down, the seaweed flavor is in full effect but its not screaming or kicking but simply making its presence known on the palate.

My only complain is that, for my own preference, I have to add a sweetener because it is be bitter plain. But that’s just me, this is a fantastic tea.

Flavors: Earth, Seaweed, Tannic
