Shhhhhhh. The baby’s asleep. And because she is, I get the chance to make tea! Babysitting tea is lovely, because I just realized that my lovely employers have some jasmine green tea (and they don’t mind me using it!). But I brought along this white tea, from Prince of Peace, to have. I think I got it in a swap a while back (probably the 12 days, like TeaTiff and Roswell Strange, but not sure). So here I am, listening to Welcome to Night Vale, and drinking this white tea. Steeped, it smells pretty smoky. At a three minute steep, I’m not getting much flavor, but with a couple more minutes, it’s actually quite good for a bagged tea. I’m not a great white tea fan, but this was a pretty relaxing cup.

Eve sent this to me in a swap and honestly I had no clue what to do with the pouch. I thought maybe I dumped the whole thing in the cup but then figured that was a little insane so I used about 1/4 of the package in 8 oz of boiling water. The crystals dissolved instantly and left behind a tea that is somehow both extremely sweet and quite spicy. In fact, I think maybe I used too much crystal because this is cloying as I drink but then has a nice ginger zing in the aftertaste. I am just very confused on how I feel right now but thank you Eve for this interesting experience.

I used a whole package, and it burned (in a good way)! You were wise to only use part of it. :)

VariaTEA

Haha. I think I wanted more burn and less sweetness. I like the burn…

OMGsrsly

Haha! :)

Sounds absolutely delicious!

Plunkybug

I just used the whole pouch and I may add more water…it is very burny. Good, but burny.

I received this as a sample in the 12 days of Christmas swap and unfortunately in the rush of trying to get packed for vacation and take some of the 12 days of tea this sample did not get labeled right. Thank you to the person that sent this my way.

This was a nice calming afternoon tea. I have never had bagged white tea before this so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was an enjoyable cup. Thank you.

I decided to give this freeze-dried ginger-honey granulated powder another try since I have a couple of packets (of unknown provenance…) in my drawer. I find, again, that it’s too sweet for me, and also the ginger seems (logically enough) like dried ginger.

I added some True Lemon, which greatly improved the flavor, as it helped to reawaken the dormant life of the ginger. But for me, this is probably best as a cold remedy, when the honey could help with a sore throat. Of course, there’s always licorice root…

I actually love these … but I don’t drink them straight. I brew a cup of hot black tea, and then add about half a packet of the crystals to my black tea and enjoy. It is wonderful when I’m feeling under the weather. I always keep some in the cupboard for when I’m feeling bad.

Now there’s an idea: everything is better with tea! ;-)

I brewed a packet of this in 8 oz water. Anyone who’s tried it knows that is crazy strong.

I can’t smell the ginger. I can feel a little heat/taste some earthiness and sweetness when I drink it, but I can’t smell the ginger.

What.

I guess it’s time to drink the teas I have that I don’t really care for…

That is what I did when I lost my tastes. I hope you feel better soon though.

OMGsrsly

Thanks. I’m getting so tired of this! :)

Good call drinking the not-so-great stuff when your taste is impaired anyway. Just sucks you’re sick in the first place.

Haha. Best tasting note ever!

I need to try this one! I loved the brown sugar version.

OMGsrsly

:D I didn’t see a brown sugar version! I’ll have to check for it the next time I’m at the Asian market.

Tabby

It’s sooo good! It tastes like it has syrup in it, haha.

Courtney

This note is great!

OMGsrsly

This one is also incredibly sweet. :)

YES. Now this is what I’m talking about when I say ginger tea.

Incredibly sweet, nice and gingery.

This will be perfect for camping. I might even be persuaded to share some with my brother.

sherapop

Okay, now you’ve motivated me to give this another try. I have some envelopes in my cupboard…

TeaBrat

i used to have these, they are good from what I remember

OMGsrsly

It is incredibly sweet, but I don’t mind. :) Lots of ginger!

Sipdown (141)!

I made this to take in my water bottle for work today. Normally I take two full water bottles/thermoses in for my shifts, but since today was just a measly half hour shift I just took the one cup worth. Really – it’s Christmas Eve and I had to go out of my way (while sick, mind you) to go in for a mere half hour of work. I shouldn’t complain, though. A lot of people, especially those is crappy minimum wage customer service jobs like myself, are not fortunate enough to have most of the day off. And, I’m lucky enough to have tomorrow off too.

I received a bag of this as an extra sample from one of the ladies doing the 12 Days exchange with me! I’m really, terribly sorry but I can’t remember who it came from – I didn’t write it down and now I’ve gone and forgotten! If it came from you, let me know so I can properly thank you!

I picked it out today because I thought straight tea might be less upsetting than flavoured tea, since my tummy is significantly calmer but not quite feeling perfectly better. I meant to just steep it for 3 minutes in boiling water as per package instructions, but I lost track of time (I blame ‘sick brain’) and wound up letting it sit for closer to 10 minutes. Fuck.

I drank the first bit while it was still fairly hot, and mostly it was just a run of the mill white tea, though quite bitter from the oversteeping. However, it was much better after I’d let it cool down. I got some sweet hay notes in addition to the bitterness.

Not gonna rate because I screwed up steeping it, but I think this could have been a lot worse considering how much I oversteeped it. Even though I wouldn’t even know where to start to go about looking for it, I don’t really have much of an interest in it. I’m just gonna be content with the fact it was nice enough regardless of my screwing up. Thank you to whoever it was who sent this to me…

Pu-Erh tea has been getting a lot of press lately for being a great metabolism booster… Amazing energy properties and wonderful antioxidants. I saw a box of 100 at a local Asian market for VERY CHEAP. It’s funny because at the nature food store down the road it’s nearly double the price. I was skeptical of the quality since you get 100 bags! Lipton doesn’t even give you that much… I brewed my first up, and I was sort of grossed out. It reminded me of Fukijima…muddy, earthy, a little bit mushroomy, but my taste buds detect seaweed…. or some green/sea type plant. Nonetheless I finished the cup. Every time I brew it — I am glad I am one tea bag down from the 100. Pu-Erh is not my cup of tea, but this Prince of Peace is not so bad especially for the price and it is drinkable. I mean… without sugar it really reminds me of basement must… which is a nice comforting quality… I suppose. The tea isn’t bitter. It has a little kick to it, but really it is mostly the smell and the FIRST taste that gets me… as you swallow the tea and let it linger in your mouth it isn’t so bad. I would recommend trying this if you can find it for 3.99. 100 tea bags is great and you can share it with your friends and see what they think.

Lightly sweet on its own. Not much of a scent, though.

Ack, forgot I had this sitting on the table and let it oversteep… but surprisingly, it’s actually fine. Only a little bitter, and still smooth on the palette. Added a little bit of water and two drops of honey to mellow it out.

Mild, not too bitter, doesn’t need any sweetener. Been drinking this whenever I get the urge to snack.

10/7/12 – Bought today at local Asian Supermarket – The one that sell frog legs, for 3.99. I know there are some Pu-erh lovers out there, and I’m gonna start with the bagged one before I start importing kilos like Scarface. I looked it up on Amazon and I think I did good. This local Asian supermarket by me has a whole isle devoted to tea so why not try them all out?

12/6/12 – This has been my daily Pu-erh drinker for now and I’m trying to get through the 100 tea bags. Sometimes I use two tea bags. As always, the taste reminds me of “dirt”.

Do you know those pregnant women who eat “pica” (nonfood items) like soap, detergent, and crayons? Well, as a man in midlife, we go through manopause, and crave Pu-Erh because is tastes like dirt/pica (weird non food item)

Sometimes tea tastes like dirt. It’s ok.
I heard there’s a Crayon/Clay flavored tea coming out for pregnant women!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pica_(disorder)

12/24/13 – Sitting on my shelf at home, I’ll have to drink this up before I hit Kam Man Food Inc at 511 Old Post Rd Edison, NJ 08817 for more Pu-Erh tea.

U R so funny!!!

drank Oolong Tea by Prince of Peace

My favorite tea is oolong but for the first time, I didn’t really enjoy this tea as much. The taste is not so strong if you were to microwave your water versus boiling a pot of water. Overall it didn’t create a good impression for me but I love a good challenge.
