Cooking TTB #20

This was my very last sample from the Cooking TTB, as I sent it off to The Cookie Lady today. There were so many teas in this box that I loved! Unfortunately, this wasn’t one of them. I found it to be very grassy, which is my least favorite flavor profile for green tea. There was a little bit of fruity flavor, but it didn’t really come across as fig. This isn’t something I’d ever care to drink again, but I still enjoyed the opportunity to try so many teas I had never heard of from companies I’ve never ordered from!

Flavors: Fruity, Grass

Agh. I’m so sorry on that one! I should have put some notes about it. It’s an extremely fickle tea. Also find that it needs honey.

Don’t worry about it! There were lots in this box that I loved. :) Thanks for organizing it!

This is a pleasant grassy green tea with fruity notes. If I pay close attention I can pick out the fig, but it’s not in your face distinctive.

This reminds me a lot of a bunch of other fruity senchas that I have in my collection, so not quite as stand out or unique as I was hoping, but still nice and drinkable.

Flavors: Fig, Fruity, Grass

This one is sooo much better when it’s fresh and with a dab of honey.

This is a great evening tea. Yes you can have it in the morning too but I’ve tried it both times of the day and for some reason it just tastes better right now. It soothes your mind. Not to mention it smells great. I’m drinking it lukewarm at the moment. I’ve had it hot but I think it’s better after it’s chilled off a bit.

Does this remind anyone of Apple Cinnamon Cheerios?

It’s light but a perfect mix of ingredients. I really want some Apple Cinnamon Cheerios right now.

This is one of my favorite teas. It is a well balanced mix of sencha and fruity flavors. I add honey to mine because I feel it brings out more of the flavors, but it is fine on it’s own too. Good slightly cooler but not cold. I found this tea in a cafe called Eggsperience in Chicago. They say a man makes the tea for them but I wasn’t able to get his information for steepster. If any of you live in Chicago you should go there, pick up one of the teas, and ask if this guy has a webpage.
