My next favourite afternoon tea after Gyphon’s own Pearl of the Orient. I love the strong lavender aroma underscored by the scent of the tea itself. Taste-wise, it’s a good balance of lavender & lingering earl grey. I don’t really detect the bergamot. It’s a good tea to enjoy over a book.

I brew it as per instructions for the median of the time indicated.

My favourite afternoon tea. It strikes a nice balance between rose and jasmine, with a slight astringency. I steep the bag up to three times.

I follow the instructions labelled, and take the median of the timings recommended.

I taste mainly chamomile in this blend, with lavender being a distant, but next strongest taste. The other flavours bring up the rear. My only gripe is that it’s slightly too astringent to me, but that fades quickly.

My go-to when I need a good night’s rest. I follow instructions for brewing and take out the tea bag about a min before the max time indicated.

The first time I try, it remind me of traditional herbal medicine which is bitter and a little spicy… I don’t like it at the time.

I have to add unsweetened condensed milk and honey on my second try, and it become really good! However, since it is not so good by itself, I will not recommend others to buy it unless they want to make some chai or milk tea.

This delicate tea is highly focus on relaxing sensation.

It has beautiful light color with refreshing aroma. Just one sniff will make you forget a bad day, and want to spend your time enjoy this tea. The flavor is light, so when I have to choose my tea from the cupboard, I always end up pick something stronger.

drank Hanami by Gryphon Tea Company
21 tasting notes

Gryphon’s POTO is one of my long-time favs and Hanami could be my perfect Sakura cuppa.

Other cherry blossom blends I’ve tried in the past came across as either sharp ume-ish concoctions, or bitter like cough syrup. But Hanami is sweet and creamy. I was surprised its base is Sencha. Coz it didn’t strike me as dark or mellow at all. There’s a hint of vanilla or some kind of gourmandish note, as well.

Also, I find Gryphon’s silky gauze sachets diffuse flavour better than paper tea bags.

Not my favourite earl grey blend but it does nicely if you like your earl grey slightly stronger, with a ‘burnt’ taste.

This is a very refreshing drink. The mint taste is quite lovely.

Since I like most of Gryphon’s blends, this chamomile came across as a disappointment. It doesn’t taste much of anything.

Quite a delicious tea. The vanilla enhances the osmanthus with a silky feel to it. Highly recommended.

My body doesn’t like eucalyptus. If tea tree aromatherapy blocks up your nose, you will likely find this a very bitter tea no matter now you brew it. I had to give it all away.

It’s quite a gentle tea, which has a hint of lemongrass and ginger. I prefer something stronger.

Interesting blend. I was pleasantly surprise the blend of bergamot and shiso. It leaves a fragrant aftertaste on the tongue and in your nose. It is lightly sweet as well. However resteeping doesn’t taste good.
