I drank a cup of this on the way to work yesterday. I was expecting a big bang of licorice flavor, but was slightly disappointed. Yes, it has a nice, mild licorice spice mix with a nice sweet after taste, but I can find a stronger licorice taste in the Stash Licorice Spice tea. (I absolutely love licorice, if you couldn’t tell) I think I will use a higher tea to water ratio next time….
Not as spicy and bold as some other chai teas I have had, but still good. I actually prefer my chai’s on the milder side. I sweetened it a bit and added a dash of milk; perfect cup for a sunny, winter afternoon…
Having my first cup of this herbal, fruity concoction. I find it quite tangy. It reminds me a bit of Evening in Missoula with a kick! I would tend to drink this in the morning as a wake up cuppa. Overall, not too bad…
This is an amazing tea! I am an Earl Grey drinker, and this was a find. Remedy teas is a great little shop. definitely go there. . .
Picked this up a few weeks ago. My first impressions were that it was pretty subtle…too subtle for my tastes, but after several trials, I found that I was steeping it at too low of a temperature. Once I did this, the flavors really came out. VERY strong floral aromas (Lilac, orchid), light body, and a subtle floral, slightly-sweet taste. Overall, a good, balanced tea, but would prefer it to be a touch bolder.
My first non-floral flavored white. The coconut is definitely the main flavor; I didn’t really taste any vanilla, but it may have been the underlying bit that tied it all together. Overall a nice tea, the flavor didn’t dominate to the point where I couldn’t taste the tea. Has more body than a straight white tea, but not bitter. I didn’t follow the steep instructions on the label because 4-5 minutes seemed a long time for a white tea.
Interesting green. It smells wonderful! Lovely toasty white chocolate/vanilla aroma, both dry & steeped. At first I thought the green tea taste was oddly separated from the rest, but as I finished the cup it blended together nicely. Sweet, slightly creamy, but I might try this with creamer next time to bump it up. However, it was fine without any additions.
Very minty, not tasting much cocoa in this. I could smell the honeybush more than I could taste it, but the blend is nice. A bit creamy, but also “clean” feeling, which I think is due to the mint.

Love this tea. On my rotation list.
A nice spice profile. Very different blend from say, a Chai.

Not used to greens myself. Used about the recommended tsp to 8 oz ratio. It brewed up very light and seemed to lose the incredibly fragrant quality the blend itself had, but still smelled just enough. The taste itself was perfect; not overrun by cloying flavorings, and not bitter at all from the green. I’m really quite pleased with this, it’s a delightful treat! No need for sweetener.
Well I’m going on a very last minute backpacking trip this weekend, the good news is I didn’t have to run to the store and got my gear packed in just over an hour, not bad. Now I sit here decompressing with my dinner of pita bread, hummus and a shou puerh. This is sad given the fact that I have some delicious greek stuffed chicken sitting in my fridge that I made the other day, but there are some days that you are just too lazy to use the microwave. Yeah, I’m that guy.
I’m debating about continuing the story of everyone’s favorite traveling tgy, but its late, I’m getting up early and I’m not sure that anyone besides me reads it. Good thing I like to hear the sound of my own … keystroke? So tgy shall wait till next week.
Oh right I’m supposed to be reviewing a tea, I knew there was a reason I was here. So I love pu. Yeah I just said that. While I generally prefer sheng, there is something enchanting about shou’s. Delicious earthy flavor, rich deep intoxicating smell, and sultry good looks. Yeah I think they may be some of the most beautiful teas I’ve had. A deep rich almost purple color. Sometimes I forget how much I like puerh and since this is the only loose one I have its the easiest for my lazy butt to brew. Therefore when I haven’t had pu for a while this is usually the one that reminds me, “Hey moron, remember me, I’m kinda awesome.”
I wouldn’t say this is a particularly stellar shou, but then again I haven’t had that many that I would say are. It does however have that amazing rich earthy flavor profile and an incredible nose. Plus as my first pu, it holds a warm fuzzy spot in my heart.
Well now I saw stick some fresh leaves in my gaiwan and retire with my book. Goodnight addicts.
4 grams leaf. 120 ml water. 10 to 60 second steeps. 205 F.
This is what gives pu-erh a bad name. I bought these really not expecting much but more a a gimic gift for some friends that I am trying to convert to tea. And they suceeded in being just that, a gimic. This is a perfect example of what many mini toucha’s are, dust that has been sweep up off the floor. These are shu so you can’t screw them up as easily as a sheng but still.
They are fun to introduce new people to tea but other than that really not worth your time.
205F. 1gram tea per 30ml. start with 15 sec infusions.

This Nam Lahn is really a very nice smooth afternoon tea, not one of the best teas Vietnam has to offer but a good example of what can come from their jungles.
Dried leaves: Somewhat unremarkable, very few tips and also it looked very twiggy which made me unduly nervous.
Wet leaves: Smell woody which is to be expected and I detect hints of chocolate other than that the scent is actually fairly tame.
Liquor: A beautiful and quite vibrant golden amber, the unadulterated clarity was the first thing I noticed, if their was such a thing as a mountain tea spring this is what it would look like. The taste did not disappoint, it is a ridiculously smooth tea, almost too smooth if that makes any sense. Not even a hint of astringency and the tea seemed to dance across the tongue while tickling the individual taste buds. There are some subtle chocolate notes, and if definitely has an underlying woody theme but that does not dominate, rather this tea strikes a perfect balance of sweet and smooth and earthy. Perhaps because of the geographical closeness to the Yunnan province or other factors unknown, but this Nam Lahn is remarkably similar to a nice Dian Hong.
In fact this tea reminds me of going out with your girlfriends twin sister, they look a lot alike, they smell, feel and taste similar. And the sister may even be smoother, and better polished, yet their isn’t the familiarity. In fact the sister may remind you to much of the original girlfriend to enjoy yourself.
Yes in my case while this is really a lovely tea it is to similar to a dian hong and lacks the soul that the Chinese black has. However if a tea from yunnan is a bit to harsh for you I encourage you to give its twin sister a whirl, you just may like it.
I am very excited now that I have discovered Vietnamese tea, and look forward to seeing what else this small country has to offer.
3g tea, 8 oz water, 4 min, 205F.
Had this yesterday, and it was really lovely. It wasn’t the usual green tea blend, that’s for sure. I could see the little white chocolate bits in the tea, and there were quite a few of them, but it just added to the flavour of the blend and didn’t really stand out/distract like I usually feel regular chocolate does in a tea blend. I didn’t get any marshmallow notes from it, per se, but overall the vanilla/white chocolate just smoothed out the green tea flavour and it was a nicely balanced, slightly sweet cup of tea. Glad I got a couple of ounces of this! I am not normally a huge green tea fan so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
I had this in a coffee shop in Seattle and it tasted a lot better than it’s ever tasted when I make it at home. Kind of funny! It was much more well-blended and maybe not steeped as long as I normally steep it. It was nice to give it a second chance, and I enjoyed it, but I still wouldn’t buy more for myself.
My sister gave me the rest of her bag of this blend, and I didn’t know what to expect, having never had pu-erh. I followed the recommendations on the bag to brew only 2-3 minutes, and it turned out very light. The spices are noticeable but not as strong as I’d like so next time I will definitely steep it longer. Overall, I like it quite a bit, but I’m still curious about what pu-erh actually tastes like since I don’t feel like I can tell here with the added spices.
This is another new-to-me-blend from my recent trip to Seattle, and for some reason I decided to only buy an ounce of it. I was trying to restrain myself a bit, but after tasting it I think I should’ve gone with 2 oz.
I feel like I’m fairly predictable when it comes to coconut (especially in tea)… I love it. This is a really smooth, unsweet black blend with lovely cornflowers and an obvious coconut note. It’s really nicely balanced, though, so there’s not too much coconut (ah ha ha, as if there is such a thing) overpowering the whole blend. I steeped it a minute longer than I meant to, and it didn’t even start to get bitter. Next time I will definitely steep it closer to 3 minutes (in a small teacup) because I think it would be really great when brewed a bit more delicately.
