First off – this tea. Wow.
It is beautiful. It looks the bottom of the Rocky Mountain Forests, all green and grassy and amazing. But because it’s a bag of full leaves and grass I had a bit of a hard time ‘scooping’ out two tablespoons. It was more like grabbing stuff with my fingers and putting into my infuser until it felt like two tablespoons.
Since I felt like I didn’t put enough in I let this steep for a long time… maybe 20 minutes or more? But It was worth it. It’s not super strong or harsh or bitter or anything. Its magnificent.
What I love is the refreshing taste that’s NOT peppermint (I don’t like peppermint teas).
All in all I am so happy that I have a caffeine-free tea that is super relaxing. A perfect in bed/beforebed/daydreaming tea to relax the body and stimulate the mind.
9.50 for 25g but totally worth it, depending on how much you want to use per cup.
Went to DavidsTea today to pick up some wintergreen woods and ended up taking a cup of tea to go. I tried this one because I thought it smelled delicious and Id heard good things about it. When I drank it though it was a bit of a different story…
so does anyone think this even tastes like tea? To me it tasted like watered down juice from concentrate. Orange or tropical punch maybe. Or hot vitamin water. I mean, it was good I guess but…. not something I want to drink if I’m in the mood for tea (I’d really rather the cold vitamin water I think).
I think if I ever tried this tea again it would be iced.
Day 29 of my 101 days of tea. Had this today (well, I suppose technically yesterday now) at the DAVIDsTEA on Queen Street West. Steeped for around 6 minutes.
I found the taste to be quite floral — more than I’d like, really. Perhaps someone who enjoyed that sort of taste might find this delightful, but it wasn’t quite my thing. It also seemed rather one-note-ish, perhaps because I’m used to flavoured whites and this was straight.
I resteeped it with a half-full cup (the DAVIDsTEA cups are pretty big, after all….), and found the taste to even perhaps get stronger than the first time around. So, still didn’t like it, but was glad to see that the flavour was quite persistant at least.
Not my favourite tea, probably wouldn’t buy more of it (especially at $20/50g). However, it’s my first straight white tea of this challenge, so I’m glad I gave it a try.
I hadn’t had this in a long time. I forgot how good it is. I have started doing a short 30 second steep and dumping out that water because I like the 2nd and 3rd steeps way better. This takes away the spinachy-vegetable taste that I didn’t like before.
2nd steep: almost boiling, 7 min
Now, it is smooth and creamy, a nice treat….but also expensive
Increasing the rating a little!
This is a yummy tea. It is definitely creamy. But I feel that I really need to be in the mood to drink this tea because it can taste vegetal at times.
I think the second steep is almost better with less vegetal taste.
It is also good mixed with other oolongs when I want a creamy taste, such as carrot cake.
My last tasting note said very little on how I felt about the tea, but I have to say, today I’m in the same boat! I’m not sure if I’ve had this sample one year or two years, but either way, I’m not a huge fan. It’s definitely a strong green tea with a bit of fruitiness to it. I’m not getting a ton of fruitiness from it, but there is some there. I’m mostly getting the orange flavour, not much of anything else.
This one came in a sampler pack that my dad bought for me. I absolutely love that he buys me tea! It’s so awesome! Anyways, I don’t think I’d get this one again, but glad I got to try it all over again. I only have the smallest bit left so I shall count this as a SIPDOWN!
I was really looking forward to trying this tea as I love carrot cake but it was only available as a tin and I wasn’t ready to commit to buying that much at a shot of something I wasn’t sure of. I finally tried it as a tea to go and was sadly disappointed. It wasn’t as flavourful as I had hoped it would be and could have perhaps used a little bit of sweetener added to it. It wasn’t offensive, it just wasn’t what I was looking for.
