Okay…so it’s not-so-hot with multiple infusions…I think I will stop at 2. Still yummy just quite a bit weaker.

Rose. A Rose is a ROSE is a Rose…or is it? I can’t help but think of Teavana’s Rose Marzipan Delight that I fell in love with a few months ago and then found out it was discontinued. Some Rose Teas I have had seem really bitter so when I feel in love with Teavana’s it was because they had that little bit of candied goodness to off set the bitterness. Well, take out the Candied goodness and THIS is what you have. Not that THAT is a bad thing. This tea is actually quite good. It’s not bitter and the black tea and rose compliment each other very nicely. Thumbs up!

Ooh….rose tea…I may have to try some.

It seems there was enough left for 1 and a half attempts left so I am over steeping the amount but not the length. After today’s steep this smells a lot like ‘green roughage’ as my mother used to say while talking about Spinach, Kale, and other dark leafy greens. Over the past year I have become quite fond of Coconut Pouchongs and this one is no exception.

The first Coconut Pouchong I tried was from SerendipiTea and LOVED it. When I received this sample from Golden Moon in the mail today I was excited to try it. I am just finishing the steeping process as I type this. Dry leaves smelled nearly identical to those of the other brand I tried…almost pastry or cookie like. Very nice. However, as this steeps it loses a lot of that scent. It changes to a green tea with a hint of coconut scent. First sip was a great enjoyment. 2nd sip…just as pleasant. The scent and taste together remind me of just-rubbed-on Coconut Suntan Lotion smell. It’s very light in color…next to no color, really. The taste is very even and smooth and brothy. It’s not overly coconut and not overly green tea to taste…everything just seems right together!

I probably could have had 2 attempts understeeped/loose leaf amount but I made it stronger today to finish the sample. So…it’s REALLY strong. Will do multiple infusions to test to day and report back.

I received this as a free sample from Golden Moon today. This is the first tea of theirs I have ever tried. It has a wonderful aroma as you open the envelop. Different than other Earl Grey I have had from other companies. I really believe it’s the Lavender addition. It’s a nice touch and calms down the bergamot. The coloring of the steeped tea is lighter in color than other Earl Greys I have tried. I like the fact that it’s a little different than other brands since Earl Grey has been done by just about everyone and their brother…so for that…I will give it a thumbs up. I will be drinking again…

Nice! Did you get anything else from them? Carolyn swapped me a few of the ones she has and I’ve been impressed so far.

TeaEqualsBliss

A smokey green tea that I do not care for.

Brewed 3 min. 1 Tsp raw sugar. Hot.
It’s malty… But I wouldn’t categorize this as strong. The other Irish Blends I’ve had have made me not want to finish the cup because of their strength. So this one seem light, sweet and pleasant to me.
It is a very nice tea but this isn’t what I thought I’d be getting because I didn’t want to put the cup down.
Perhaps if you use the maximum steep time the strength will develop.
It is complex though. The fruit flavors come out in a very nice way.

Brewed 5min. No additives. Hot.
It ends with a bit of astringency and bitter after taste. Is better with sugar but I was hoping I found a black tea that didn’t need it.

I really think plain earl grey tastes like dish water. I’m not going to say that this tastes great but the lavender really does round out the flavor so it is not so punchy.
It is a better earl grey…
