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!
Flavors: Creamy, Mint
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.
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?
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.
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
Finished up my box of this one. It was always nice to have around for those times when I wanted a cup of something warm and soothing and not exactly subtle, but not too strong or flavored either. I’ll have to look for something similar to occupy the same place in my cupboard! A houjicha would probably fit the description nicely…
