I had this from a sampler from Good Earth. It wasn’t a standout tea. Nothing like a true sencha, no matcha coloring to the tea. It was just mediocre. The citrus was very bland, too. I have wanted to try it, glad I did.

This is the best bagged jasmine tea I’ve had. I used to drink this religiously in college, iced. Very refreshing, just the right amount of jasmine. Has a slight sweetness to it.

I did not enjoy the spice in this tea. This was a sample that was given to me. I would not buy this tea. I am happy I was able to sample this tea as I continue my Tea Journey to discovery of teas.

“… I would not buy this tea”… Cracked me up ;)

I never really thought about “decupboarding” before, but there is a certain joy to making room for a new tea on the shelf, isn’t there?

Jaime

Yes, there is. It also helps me to justify all the new teas I’ve been getting!

So, yesterday I got tea packages from Meghann and seykayay.

Today I picked up my order from David’s Tea at the post office, then got home to find my order from Sanctuary T in my mailbox.

So far, it’s been a really good mail week!

You might be asking why I’m having this and not one of my brand new teas. Well, the answer is two-fold: after this pot, I’ve got two bags left until I can decupboard it. And, well…I’ve no idea which of my new teas to start with. Really, absolutely no clue. All I know is that my real-life cupboard is needing rearranging/expanding. Especially since I know of 2 more tea orders that should be working their way towards me…

Use the Tea Randomizer once you get your new teas all in your digital cupboard:

It helps me decide…and if I don’t like it’s decision, I can click on “Meh” and it will choose again:)

Jaime

I’m going to go with Swampwater from David’s for my first one. After all, it’s the reason I made the order in the first place. I think I’ll alternate a pot of a new one with a pot of an old one tonight.

Meghann M

I should do that, or at least a new one and then a sample tea. I really need to drink some of the teas I purchased in March!

The move is over, and Katie is in full nesting mode. I’m lounging on the couch with a cup of tea watching her do her thing. I got the furniture in and didn’t hit anything with the Uhaul. My part in this adventure is done.

Needing something sweet right now, and this is it. The caramel, vanilla, and spices blend perfectly with the rooibos. Scent still reminds me of a sugar cookie baked with wildflowers…hmm, maybe I should bake tonight.

Bumping up the rating on this a bit. It tastes better everytime I have it.

The bag smells like a cross between wildflowers and sugar cookies. Sounds strange, but it works quite well. When brewed, smell is more like sweet caramel. It’s a very light dessert tea, naturally sweet. The vanilla and caramel are about equal in their intensity. This is my first tea from Good Earth; I’ll definitely be trying more.

Brewed for 10 minutes.

I used to love this tea hot, but something happened – maybe I just got tired of it? It’s still delicious cold, though (brewed hot and then iced) and I’d recommend that to anyone!

Free packet from the front of a cooking magazine.

I can’t decide whether I like this or not. Citrusy, slightly sharp and mostly sweet.

Freebie that came with a cooking magazine.

I really like this. It’s minty but has a fuller flavour because of the nutmeg and chicory.

Nice fragrance. Little perfumey on the taste, but not bad for a Jasmine tea (I don’t normally drink it because I don’t really like perfumey tea.)

A go-to delicious sweet and spicy tea in our home. I love to add a little soy milk to this and have it in the evening. Pretty tasty iced on a warm afternoon as well!

The smell of the cinnamon while steeping reminded me of big red gum (which I don’t like) so I went for a shorter steeping time. I didn’t realize we were out of milk until I finished making it so I simply put extra honey in.
It’s good, but I don’t think I’ll get it again. (Unless the milk tones down the cinnamon and brings out the other spices, I can’t really taste any of the others. Cinnamon is good but if I wanted cinnamon tea that’s what I’d be drinking.)
[May update later when I’ve gotten some milk.]

I had to sweeten this a little but I think I may have steeped it a little much for this particular brand. I’ll have to have another cup of tea to make sure [:)]. Anyway, this is fairly good. Not my favourite earl grey but, for a bagged tea, it’s more than acceptable. It does have a definite citrus taste (not too strong) and the bergamot taste is a little stronger, in my opinion, than the Twinings Earl Grey.

I found this tea to be quite excellent! It is delicate, tasty, does not get bitter through the duration of drinking. I really enjoy this tea. It has a well balanced flavor profile, you get the essence of Jasmine with a bright, clean and clear taste of green tea without the astringency. I am anxious to try this brand’s other offerings. I would recommend this tea as an “everyday” green tea for the Jasmine green tea lover; as compared to the Jasmine teas I have recently reviewed, Steven Smith Teamaker’s Jasmine offerings are more for elegant dining because of the quality of the tea and the amount of Jasmine used to make such premium products.

Good Earth Tea products are for the everyday, health-conscience, environmentally-conscience consumer. I will be purchasing their other flavors in the near future. I do highly recommend this tea and this brand.

I used to like this tea and thought it was pretty incredible tasting (I couldn’t believe that a tea could have this much flavor and be this sweet without sugar). Then I saw the 2nd or 3rd ingredient was “artificial flavor”. Well, sometimes you expect a tea to have artificial flavors and it doesn’t pretend to be an ‘herb tea blend’ (Ie, you know that it’s flavored and that is ok). I always got the impression that this was an amazing tea because it was just herbs and spices (mmmm….like the secret recipe of 12 herbs and spices for KFC). But when I found out it tasted like that because of artificial flavors….well, that pretty much killed it for me (kind of like when it was revealed that KFC’s secret blend of “12” herbs and spices was the “secret” 3 – salt, pepper, and MSG…).

There are far too many other options for very flavorful, spiced teas that don’t depend on artificial flavors. I could still drink this, but I won’t be buying it…

VegTea

Here are the listed ingredients for Good Earth Original tea:
Black tea, natural flavor, rosehips, cinnamon, chamomile, lemongrass, peppermint, papaya, jasmine tea, anise seed, ginger root, orange peel and orange oil. Contains no sugar, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. A natural source of antioxidants.

I don’t have a problem with artificial flavors in tea, but this tea does not contain any artificial flavors.

Tea-Rex

I can verify what VegTea has said. The newest products of Good Earth contain no artificial flavoring.

Great as an after dinner tea , with some desert,,,especially something of a caramel , or maple flavor to compliment the full bodied flavors of this tasty tea

I found a bag of this in my backpack – so, it’s probably 1-2 years old. I recently discovered the hot water dispenser at work, and it is so freezing in the AC I really needed a cup of hot tea. This was really a pleasant surprise. I really don’t remember liking this all that much when I first had it, but today it is great. The ginger (and perhaps other spices, as I see there are a lot of other ingredients) is coming through most strongly, but there is a nice fruitiness without being sweet. Perhaps it is the non-standard steeping conditions – less-than-boiling hot water in my stainless steel insulated mug.

Not my favorite of the teas in my cupboard. It’s very strong, especially the anise and ginger. But, it’s really soothing on a sore throat. Just make sure that it’s really hot when you drink it, the flavor goes a little funny, I think, when it gets closer to room temperature.

Very rich, full flavor. A bit strong, but easily balanced with a slight addition of milk.
