Mild to light flavored tea. I get a very light citrus/almond note accompanying its mild tea flavor. Agreeable both hot or iced. One of the better white teas I have tried, many tend to have too strong of a citrus flavor for my preferences. I tend to prefer non-herbal, strong black teas; however, this was a delightful change of palate. Four O’Clock has become one of my favorite tea brands based on this tea and their Breakfast/English Breakfast blend. Slightly expensive for an everyday product, but would recommend as an occasional treat.
Flavors: Almond, Bamboo, Citrus
One of my favorite black teas. I drink both iced and hot black tea daily and by far this is one of my favorites. Slightly pricey as far as black teas go, but for me, its worth the price. I would say it is comparable to Twinings. Its a bold, full flavored black tea but does come across as bitter. I would also recommend the white tea from Four O’Clock as well; however, the green tea wasn’t one of my favorites from them.
I made a big pitcher of iced tea. I’ve been drinking most of my tea iced lately. I find it a nice change of pace from having it hot and I’m finding it quite refreshing for the summertime. I mixed together this tea with Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Vanilla and the result was a treat. Tastes like strawberry bubblegum! Really nice! The strawberry flavour was obviously coming from this tea and it did taste like sweet, ripe, juicy strawberries. I will prepare this combination again until my Sleepytime Vanilla is gone and then I will make it using only the Strawberry Daiquiri.
Flavors: Strawberry, Sweet
Want to like. Keep trying to like. But, do not like. Sadface. White teas never seem to ring my bell, so maybe that’s it? I dunno, though. I keep searching for the “almond” in the “almond biscotti”, but I can never find it. All I get is a thin, vague sweetness. If I spot it on the shelves again this holiday season, I think I’ll take a pass.
This is my kind of cookie in a cup. Lightly sweet, lots of almond flavor, and even though it is a white tea there is a bread-y flavor that lends a distinct cookie taste. Plus, this is a tea bag, so it’d be so easy to throw a few in my purse to keep on hand for tea emergencies. I’d definitely pick some up if I were to happen across them.
Thank you OMGsrsly for giving me the chance to try this one.
This is a really decent spiced white bagged tea. I’m glad I got it whenever it was I picked it up, but I don’t think I need to get it again. Today it’s mostly chicory and white tea that I’m tasting, with a few spices and a little sweetness.
And I’m still under 260 even with the new teas, which is nice. I might drink a few more easy sipdowns tonight, or maybe not. :)
Pretty good! I added a couple drops of stevia to this, and it was just nicely mildly sweetened.
The chicory and stuff in it lends to a somewhat thicker feel, which is also nice. Not a lot of caffeine, I don’t think, but I still enjoyed it. :)
(2 tea bags in 14 oz)
In other news… As far as nails go, the ones where I did base-top-regular.polish-top are looking better than the one I did regular.base-regular.polish-top. The more you know. I also did my toes with the kit colour. I’ve never had red toenails. I don’t think I ever want them again. I really dislike this red, wow. I wish I could have chosen my own colour. And of course since I’ve used it now, I can’t exactly give it away. :/
I, uhh, double bagged this one tonight. Yes, tea with caffeine at 11pm. Why? Because I feel like it.
I’m supposed to be finishing up a presentation for a meeting tomorrow, but I don’t wanna. I should have enough time to do it in the morning if I don’t sleep through my alarm. Again.
Anyways. With a dollop of cream, this is really nice. Didn’t feel a need to add sugar to this cup for some reason. Maybe because it smells so incredibly sweet. Chocolaty, biscuity, and I can even taste the white tea today.
I need to remember this is in my cupboard so I can drink it all ASAP.
I got sucked into buying this tonight. It was either this for $2.69, or a tin of Coconut Matcha (sweetened) for $9.99. This won.
I’m actually rather impressed. I had guessed it’d steep into a bitter, terrible mess, but it hasn’t. Yes, the flavour is strong and isn’t the best quality, but the cocoa shells and chicory raise this up over a normal flavoured bagged tea. I’ll definitely finish the package, but I don’t think I’d buy it again.
This tea steeps too weakly for my taste, even with two teabags in a cup. I honestly think that I’ll need to use three or four to get a decent cup. I only paid $2 for a box of 16 individually packaged teabags so for the price it’s not bad. At least the packaging makes it convenient. But personally, I’d prefer to pay a bit more for loose leaves that give a stronger steep than this one. It’s always nice to try something new though.
I never tried this because they’re always more expensive than the Ito-en/kirkland green teas that are always beside it…
But one time they had a sale I decided to pick it up. What a mistake.
It’s not so good. It turns sour/bitter way too quickly even if I adjust the water temperature, tastes more smokey like cheap Chinese green teas that I don’t like too much…
Not very pleasant… I’m chugging it down so I can go back to my old green tea…
