I brought some of this to the dialysis clinic with me today, Im actualy thinking about just bringing my electric kettle and small steeper up here with us cuz i have to sit in here for like 4 or 5 hours.

do they still make those 2-cup hot pots like we all used at college back in the day? That and a Finum basket would work great I would think.

Thomas Edward(Toad)

Yep, thats pretty much what I have but mines 2 quarts and a ceramic infuser cup thingie that would be good for bringing up here, I think I will bring it with me on friday, it would make things alot better here.

I found this one by accident at one of my local stores, I like it and drink some just about everyday because I make it by the pitcher and keep in in the fridge it is my everyday iced tea. My Husband hates it lol

This is my favourite bagged Oolong brand. I have a leg up at the distributor, so I get bulk prices by the case. I supply it to a local Chinese restaurant as well and we advertise each other. Prince of Peace has a lovely aroma and beautiful colour. I drink it before and after tai chi or yoga. Sometimes, I blend it with Bigelow Organic Green to really give it a spark.

This was my very first loose leaf tea.

I don’t have much to say about it (since I finished the tea over six months ago as of this writing ) other than I remember it not being as sweet as other versions of Dragon Well.

This is de-freaking-licious and spicy, in a good way!

Maybe this is an older tea bag but I really can’t taste any flavor here. I don’t think I oversteeped or it was too hot. It doesn’t even seem like a white tea.

One of my favorites. I don’t like caffeine so I steep the bag in a little hot water for 30 seconds, then dump it (to get rid of most of the caffeine). Then I fill my 32-oz teapot and let it steep for 5-10 minutes. It ends up very tasty and satisfying. As good as any white tea I’ve tasted. (Note: I haven’t tasted expensive white teas.)

Great tea if you are looking for all the magnificent health benefits of drinking green tea, but want a little variety. White tea is just the young green tea leaves plucked before they mature. It has a milder, less “grassy” taste, compared to traditional green tea. I think it actually may have a very, very subtle sweet flavor.

This is inexpensive tea. Don’t let that stop you from trying it. I enjoyed drinking this tea. I like that the bags come packed inside a zip lock bag. I also enjoy knowing that every time I buy a box I am helping to support an orphanage in China for special health needs children. That in itself is enough reason to try this brand. Mellow in taste. Sure you can buy a lot better but for grocery store tea this is pretty good.

Cofftea – I apologize for deleting your comment I was trying to reply but I obviously don’t understand the console. If you go to popus.com and read their about us page they list a lot of products you have probably used and their charitable policy seems to be company wide

Finding puerh at my local grocery store was such an excitement I could not resist buying a box of puerh teabags even though I had my doubts as to their quality but figured that worse comes to worse they could be used for travel where not the best puerh is a lot better than no puerh. When I brewed my first cup from the $5.75 box of 100 teabags I was impressed with the quality. While it is not at the level of a puerh that can stand up to the rich smooth mellowness of an upper end Menghai or Mengku puerh cake, it is a lot better than a number of the cheap puerh bricks and cakes that I’ve had over the years. As with most puerh teabags I brew them long and will double them up to ensure a single good brew, the result was a slightly earthy (but not to the musty point) cup of puerh with a slightly sweet and smooth taste. I can not complain at the lack of complexity and while this is not one that I would brew in my yixing pot when I am at home it is a puerh that is good enough that I would not feel deprived if it was my only tea on a vacation.

By “Young Green Tea Leaves”, I think they mean Sencha. You are supposed to brew this for 3-5 minutes, but I only leave it in for one since I like my green tea more mild. Prince of Peace Premium Green Tea was not bought by me, but bought by my parents, so I don’t really know where you can buy this.

This tea is not caffeine free as it contains 20mg of caffeine per cup. The string attached to the tea bag is way too long though; I can wrap it around the handle of the mug I use for tea several times. That is really my only complaint with this tea.

Hmm. I just can’t get into this tea. To my taste, it’s missing that distinct white tea flavor and perhaps more importantly, it lacks the velvety smoothness that I like in a white tea. No matter how I try steeping it, it comes out tasting really generic. So much that, in a blind taste test, if I didn’t have the box and label right here, I wouldn’t be able to identify it as a white tea at all. Maybe I got a bad batch of this tea? Perhaps I’m going mad?!?

I always try to look on the bright side, but I can’t find much in common with one of my favorite Bai Mu Dans… (Rishi)

drank Black Tea by Prince of Peace
186 tasting notes

I steeped this this morning for breakfast. It steeps to a rich brown color, a hue very similar to coffee without any milk in it. It’s so dark that I can barely see my spoon at the bottom of the cup! The aroma and taste of this tea is decidedly smokey. It isn’t bitter at all, but the flavor isn’t really pronounced. This black tea by Prince of Peace pretty much tastes like a slightly stronger, more breakfast-y version of the tea served in Chinese restaurants throughout the country. Nothing special.

Ugh. I could not get through the entire cup of this tea. I’ve never actually had either ginseng or jasmine teas, and these two flavors together completely overwhelmed me. It smelled pretty medicinal; I actually recoiled when I smelled the bag. The flavor was overwhelmingly rooty and herbal in an entirely unpleasing was. The aftertaste left a lot to be desired; it was almost soapy, and I couldn’t get the taste off my tongue. Most of this tea I dumped down the drain. I won’t be trying this again.

I’ll take it off your hands:)

Rena Sherwood

This tea sounds frightening.

teaplz

I’d definitely give it to you, Cofftea, if I had more than one bag of it left. :\ I’m definitely probably going to hand it back to my boyfriend. I’m not the hugest fan of ginseng, but I certainly didn’t like it in tea form! It was definitely the dominant flavor, over the jasmine.

Cofftea

Adagio’s ginseng green is one of my favorites, and I love their Jasmine teas:)

Jillian

Yes, it definitely sounds like you got short-changed on the jasmine. Adagio and Harney & Sons both make a good jasmine tea in my opinion if you feel like giving it another shot. :)

Cofftea

Jillian is right, EVERY Jasmine tea Adagio sells is great. And so is their green ginseng.

teaplz

I definitely will probably try giving it another shot! Thanks for the recommendations, Jillian and Cofftea.

I think part of the reason why I didn’t enjoy this one at all was that there wasn’t any actual tea in it. The entire thing is completely herbal! From what I’ve read, jasmine is pretty delicate, and the ginseng just completely slapped me in the face. I might like it as a flavoring on top of itself, but pure ginseng flavor is pretty medicinal!

Cofftea

Oh yeah, that would be why! I personally don’t drink herbals alone unless I’m doing a tea review. My opinion is why drink fake tea?:) Maybe try it steeped in your favorite unflavored white or green tea instead of plain water?

Flowery and peaceful. A nice cup of tea for a break in the action of a busy day.
