Recent Tasting Notes

I tend to avoid most green teas because of the “grassy” taste but this one actually is pretty tasty! The lemongrass adds a nice touch, and I’ve found myself not even needing to add sugar to it, a rarity for me.

There is so much oil of spice added to this tea that the bags are oily and stained a curious greenish-yellow. The flavour comes across as fake and can easily turn a stomach. This tea is undrinkable.

Like with my not so great experiences with Green teas, I tried Chai years ago once or twice. (I remember at least one of those times was a cold one…Starbucks or Borders Cafe.) I did not care for it. I suspect now that it was because I did not have the palate to appreciate it. Now, generally speaking for a bagged tea, Good Earth seems like a decent company. unbleached tea bags, no over emphasizing health qualities, (which is not an automatic turn off for me, but still.) This flavor: I am extremely picky about my vanilla. Imitation doesn’t bother me, as long as it doesn’t taste like imitation. And balance of flavor is also important, if there is more then one. I do not like notes that only hit at the last minute. I do like the Original Spicy, but I found the cinnamon to be almost too intense. So, the vanilla smooths that out for me, but I still feel the kick of the cinnamon. I think next time I will try steeping it for 7 minutes, to see how it comes out.

Another tidbit that was included in the sampler from KeenTeaThyme. The dry bag smells very strongly of cinnamon. I am instantly reminded of winter and Christmas time with my grandparents, even though I’ve never had this tea.

The taste is very mild on the actual black tea aspect. It just tastes like straight up cinnamon and anise. My mouth literally tingles with the combination. It’s very flavorful and interesting, but not really what I’m into. Especially in the summer. But I can imagine this might be nice on a gray, icy day.

I think even the most sophisticated of tea drinkers (which I do not claim to be) have their guilty-pleasure bagged tea. This one is mine. It is easy to make, easy to drink, easy to rest your thoughts on. It demands nothing of you, other than a high tolerance for cinnamon, and will sit contentedly on your shelf for years at a time without loosing anything.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Spices

I think that Good Earth was the first tea that converted me to a devoted tea drinker, over 7 years ago. I’ve sipped it now and again since, and none of the nostalgia has worn off. Reached for it this morning because I’ve been on a “serious tea” binge and needed something a little easier, with more of an emotional connection and less of an intellectual tasting. However, I left the tea bag unattended and it turned out slightly medicinal tasting.

No matter the actual quality, I know that this is a tea I’ll return to so long as Good Earth keeps making it.

A smell of strong, fresh berries greeted my nose as I ripped open the protective sachet to prepare the brew.
This cup is going to be enjoyed whilst watching football (soccer to some of you).

Colour: Deeply dark purple.
Smell: Berrytastic.

Super strong, sweet and fruity. I can taste the apple firstly which comes through quite sourly and then berries come marching in behind it with sweetness. It’s alright over all but I was hoping this one would be a little more delicate and not so much of a mixed fruit punch. Blueberry is what it’s called and blueberry is what I wanted to taste. Maybe a better name would be ‘Sour apple with mixed berries’. I keep being reminded of sweets today

When I was on campus a few hours ago, I was in a common room with a couple TVs minding my own business when I noticed the room was starting to fill up. And then I noticed there was a soccer game playing. Sigh. Was it some important game today? All I caught was that Portugal was playing.

KittyLovesTea

It was a fairly important game, Euro 2012 games (European games come one every 4 years). The Portugal against Czech match was a quarter final. There are still a good few matches to go yet too.

Kittenna

Ahh, gotcha. I only really follow Canadian football, and may not even do that this year, so I’m always having to figure out what important sporting event is causing a large crowd!

A good basic green tea, with the side benefit of being decaf, so I can have it while I unwind before bed!

This tea not only smells fantastic, but it tastes great, too – the fruit flavors are there, but not enough to overpower the tea.

Such a Warming chai tea. Quite different in flavor from other chai teas I’ve but it’s really flavorful and tasty with milk.

This was an alright tea, I felt like having a tea bag… the smell was so strong with the chai.. it was so spicy for the smell, it put me off a little… I couldn’t really smell the cocoa in this… the taste of the tea is the exact opposite,, I can taste the cocoa, and not so much the chai.. I did add milk and sugar to tone it down though…. It was drinkable.. I did enjoy it… I wouldn’t buy it or feel the need to drink this again..

My favourite tea ever! Wish it was readily available in the part of Canada where I live (Northern Ontario) Apparently it is now available in British Columbia. I like very spicy teas – as long as they’re sweet too, and this fits the bill!

Sorry about my in-activeness recently, after my holiday to Las Vegas I have had a few minor upsets. No point in drinking my wonderful tea’s if I cannot keep them down.

I chose this one as it sounded devilishly good right now with it’s spicy and sweet blend. Only one of these tea bags to try which was a gift from an American friend of mine.

The steeping time and water temperate was as stated on the back of the packet. And as always this tea was brewed without sweetener.

Colour: Deeply brown with amberesque highlights.
Smell: Magically cinnamon with anise.

Taste: Very much like the smell the most notable is cinnamon and anise, a wonderful combination. Thinking about it I used to import a chewing gum that was identical to the fragrance that was cinnamon flavoured.

I suppose it is both sweet and spicy but with a decent balance. Very tasty for a bagged tea…I wish I had more than just the one of these bags :(

Sort of refreshing too which could be the peppermint in this tea, for having so many ingredients though it is hard to pick anything out other than the three that I have mentioned (peppermint, cinnamon and anise). Still yummy by all accounts.

This happens to be my favorite tea. It’s super strong, which is something I love. It is really spicy, but just sweet enough to balance it out… Gotta love that.

I absolutely adore this tea.
Personally, I prefer Earl Grey teas to really focus on blending the bergamot with the rich black tea, which this tea does beautifully, along with the other, more classically ‘Good Earth’ spices. Particularly lovely when feeling just slightly under the weather, too.

A few weeks ago, I had a friend over for a tea party. Now, when I host a tea party like this, it usually means serving some of the Chinese teas I have gong fu style, since most of my friends have no experience with them. For this one fateful party, my friend brought along a lovely array of teas from her own personal stash for me to taste!

I was very excited to try them, as many of the teas were picked up in Mexico where she spends a month or two each year.

While this one was clearly not from Mexico, I was interested to try this tea in particular and, at long last… here I am!

I’m not a big fan of mango, so I wasn’t sure how I’d like this tea. The dry leaf and following the liquor were quite sweet in aroma. I was concerned that the tea itself would be too sweet for my sensibilities. However, my worries were unfounded and I discovered this to be a very mildly flavored tea.

It is sweet and tropical, but not in an overpowering way, which suits me very nicely. It almost has a coconut-y after-taste once the tea is more in the “warm” zone than hot. It’s definitely interesting. I’m not sure it’s really my style, but I’m enjoying it this morning!

Mangosteen is a purple fruit from a tropical evergreen and not a mango of any sort. I tried this tea too just because I had the fruit in the tropics but you rarely find it here. I found it dehidrated at Trader Joe’s in California.

Dinah Saur

Interesting! Though this does actually have mango in it as well, it says on the package. I guess that’s more what I was referring to with the mango. But I did not know that about the Mangosteen! I’ll have to see if I can find some at TJs sometime. :)

Bonnie

Sorry ol neighbor I wasn’t trying to be uppity but many people get the mango and mangosteen associated because of the name. Mango on it’s own is not good except as fresh fruit or juice in my opinion. I have a powder used in Indian cooking that is really tangy sour!

Dinah Saur

Not at all! I just didn’t specify at the time that there was actual mango as well as mangosteen. :)

And yeah, I guess I’m not a big fan of most tropical fruits by themselves, actually. Just not to my taste!

Cinnamon-sweet. This is the first tea I could drink without sweetener. My office-mate back in 1999 gave me my first bag of this. It was good in the office as a break. It was probably my first experience with rooibos, too (which I why every time I taste cinnamon, I think rooibos, even though I know that’s not correct!) I haven’t been able to find it lately. I wonder if I would still like it?

Sweet and full of cinnamon, this is a tea that stands on its own (and would not go too well with most food). It needs no sugar, and is full enough of spiciness and sweetness that a large cup never gets boring. The tea flavor is somewhat overpowered by the other herbs. Some tastes linger for longer than they’re welcome, and there may be one or two too many flavors (peppermint?!) But I’m glad I have this tea, and that it doesn’t seem to have gotten worse over several years.

Some of the flavors are more enjoyable as the tea cools to luke warm, so I will have to try it iced.

This was offered at a baby shower my wife and I went to over the weekend. I’ve never had if before so…why not. I should of stayed with not. I like the effort but the whatever else they ad to the mate and black tea just doesn’t work. It’s like drinking a medicated balm. I know not to put this one in the cupboard.
