I am a fan of Numi tea, and this is another one to add to my favourites list. I got this in a university dining hall, so it was steeped in a small paper cup and thus turned out quite strong. While my first impression was that it didn’t taste at all like roses (which was a shame since I love floral teas), a second steeping yielded a lighter liquid and better flavour. The smell emanating from the cup smells just like fresh-cut roses, and it comes out in the tea as well. It’s like drinking a bouquet! Mmmm. This white tea doesn’t beat my Kusmi Rose, but if I do run out of that I will grab some of this!
I got this one when I went to visit my parents over Thanksgiving. It’s in a bag, and it’s Numi, so I figured it’d be pretty good for work.
I don’t think I steeped it long enough. And possibly didn’t use hot enough water. It’s kind of weak. That said, it’s chocolatey and sweet and comforting, which is what I need right now.
(The kettle set up at work is terrible. But at least there’s a kettle now, and not just the communal microwave of grossness.)
I only had two samples of this and I took them with me to dog sit tonight whilst my parents are out. They have gone to see a band called The Cult, my mum used to be engaged to Ian Astbury the singer so she goes to see them whenever they come over. I’ve been treated to an Indian take away tonight :D
Steeped colour is mahogany with an earthen, musky scent. I can’t particularly smell any magnolia or anything floral but there is a delicate sweetness.
Flavour is thick and perfumed with some astringency and dryness in the after taste. The flavour is more magnolia like than it’s scent but it’s not fresh enough for my personal liking. The Puerh is still very musky and earthen but somewhat toned down from what I was expecting.
It’s certainly drinkable but this tea just isn’t for me. Too perfumed and dry for me.
Here’s Hoping Traveling Tea Box
Numi is pretty good for bagged tea, so I grabbed one of these to try. I was surprised to read that this is primarily a green tea, with just a hint of pu-erh! The magnolia is very intriguing! We have magnolias in our yard and I love the scent. The magnolia+green is like a twist on jasmine green, and the pu-erh adds a hint of rich undertone to the whole package. Very nice. I would love to see someone like Verdant or Mandala do a straight pu-erh version of magnolia!
Sipdown! I actually kinda like this one. Definitely a good option on campus, as there’s one place with Numi teas and one place with H&S. :)
Just having it with honey today, although I do really like it with milk or cream as well.
I’ve had a box of these teabags for a while now, and think that I’ve had maybe one cup. I’m just not impressed by this tea. It’s very bland, although if you like white teas this would probably be more enjoyable. The rest of this box is up for grabs if anyone wants it!
-Standard teabag with a tag.
-Teabag smells lightly of roses. Tea liquor aroma faintly floral.
-Tea liquor is a cloudy medium yellow orange color.
-Fresh grassy flavor and finish. Light rose aftertaste.
-Best with sweetener.
-Fair tea. A very bland cup with not much flavor.
My new tea goal is to get through the big box of teabags that I have in our pantry. This one was on the top, and one that I’ve been meaning to try for a while. I believe this is from Serenity – thank you! The teabag smells nicely of bergamot, and the tea itself has more of a malty scent. The flavor is very robust and malty with a lemony finish and a soft bergamot aftertaste. It’s a very lightly flavored bergamot, rather than those EGs that are all in-your-face strong bergamot. Milk and sugar almost overwhelms the delicate flavor, but I added the tiniest bit of both. Overall, a very nice and relaxing cup.

I like it.Actually this is one of those few earl greys that I can drink through without anything unsatisfying (or even unpleasant to my palate),thus enjoying myself completely. The tea is decent,the scent of bergamot is not overwhelming nor chemical(I feel not so good sometimes when bergamot isn’t working very well, or too sharp),every thing is so natural,like they are supposed to be together. I’m even happier to find that there is a very enjoyable taste here ,reminding me of honey cake,flavorful and smooth and natural,just what I need from a relaxing earl grey.
TeaboxB! With green tea in the ingredients list, I thought this would be more green tea than pu-erh. SO I cooled the water a while… accidentally for a few minutes but I like how it turned out anyway. The flavor is actually definitely pu-erh and not green. It has the pu-erh fragrance. The taste is really nice, very sweet, medium bodied… hard to describe otherwise but no magnolia that I can detect. And no mysterious notes of vanilla or fruit that the description mentions. Just plain ole pu-erh. This would be the perfect starter to try out pu-erh since it actually tastes like many of the nice pu-erhs I’ve tried. Surprisingly good!
My mother’s surprise 60th birthday party went off without a hitch! But boy did I need this calming cuppa when the after dinner coffee/tea service came around. :-)
Bright lemon flavor, mellow earthy green tea, not made harsh by the mate. Good for the morning if I don’t have time for something else.
I’ve been overlapping my teas, in an effort to catch up to my steep sister Sil, & I brewed this one & the Plum Oolong at the same time. I added a little stevia to the Oolong, because it benefits from a little sweet, & drank it with my dinner (BBQ! Tony was having sweet tea, I had Plum Oolong).
As I was drinking that tea, I realized it wasn’t sweet at all. When I started drinking this one, I realized it was, LOL. Oops!
Oh well, the sweetness was actually nice, bringing out the fruitiness of this one. Although it’s not amazing, it’s ok for a bagged Shu.
I’m back at Tony’s. We’re watching Hell on Wheels. Next up is SNL.
This was one of the first Puerh teas I ever had, along with The Tea Spot’s Bolder Breakfast. Considering that this is in a bag, it’s really not bad, & definitely better than the cherry cough syrup tasting Shu I had a little while ago. It’s a smooth earthy tasting cup, a nice way to start drawing my day to a close.
Really not a fan. I can hardly taste the mint amid all the bitter flavor.
This pu’erh does not have the musty, fishy aroma that I’ve been accustomed to withloose leaf pu’erhs. Not that that’s a bad thing since I’m not really a fan of pu’erh. The liquid, after a 3 to 5 minute brew, is extremely dark, like a dark coffee. The straight pu’erh, without additives, has a bit of a spicy undertone. The aroma is slightly perfumed and earthy. The flavor- well it’s full bodied, but it’s hard to describe the flavor as it seems unique. I added a little Splenda to see if that would make the flavor stand out. It did make it seem little more earthy/musty, but not in a bad way. This is probably a good way to ease into the world of pu’erh teas.
Today is just an iced tea day, and I feel like I’m drinking gallons of the stuff!
This was brewed along with a generic white tea bag and then poured over ice. I must admit I usually prefer cold brewing a tea if I have time since the ice dilutes so much of the flavor. Nothing too remarkable about this, it’s straight up spearmint I believe, but it seems very refreshing today with our Indian Summer weather!
My little sister’s favorite tea is earl grey, so I’ve tried a bunch of different kinds and brands and varieties.
Numi’s is probably one of the best (if not the best) tea-bag earl greys that I have ever had.
It’s just super delicious. It has a really nice smell, and I think the real bergamot adds all the difference, taste wise.
I like to add a bit of milk and honey.
This is my first review thing I have no idea what I’m doing.
Thanks, Nicole_Martin for a packet of the Spinach Chive Flavor!
Good Golly Miss Molly this was salty! I felt like I was drinking soup created with too much bouillon. And I like salty things, but this was just a bit too much after the first couple of ounces. If I have this again, I will have a very small cup of it at one time.
I LOVE spinach. It’s my second favorite veggie next to potatoes, so I was excited to have a spinach tea. This was heavy on the chives and onion, so the spinach and green tea was kind of lost to those flavors. At one point the chives were so strong my eyes actually watered! -And yet I kept drinking it…
This makes a nice soup broth (though I would add some more spinach and maybe some rice to it), but as a tea? I dunno.
My husband told his mom that I was into tea, so she bought whatever she could find from her local grocery store for our visit. This was one of them. It’s actually really nice! It’s still got that earthy quality but it’s very lightly flavored with vanilla. I’ve enjoyed my two cups so far!
For a novelty packaged puerh tea from an American company designed to look like an upper end chocolate bar, my expectations were not that high. While they say that it can be brewed 4 times, I would recommend dumping the first brew as it almost made me give up on the tea. The second brew is where things got more interesting as it does indeed have some chocolate flavor notes mixed in with the earthy smoothness that I must admit I was skeptical of upon seeing it in other reviews as that is not common when it comes to puerh in my experience. Overall this is not the greatest puerh but at the same time likely represents a potentially good entry level one for somebody that wants to try one they can pick up locally.
Another random tea bag while at training.
Heavy on the cinnamon and cardamon. I’m not tasting much of the assam. Just ok. I’ve had much better chais. This would probably be better with milk, but I don’t have any.
