This is the first ginger tea I have tried and I must say I love it. With no added sugars, there is room for the flavor of pure ginger – although I didn’t find it too strong. What got me was the spiciness at the end of every sip, which I’m addicted to. For an easy, no-fuss herbal tea with a spicy twist, this is a good option.

This is another sample from a friend that picked it up at the Asian market. He said a lady shopping in the same aisle recommended it.

It smells kind of exactly like I expected. Like tree bark. Wood chips, or paper, sort of. Or cardboard. The instructions said to give it five to ten minutes, so I went with 7:30 since that was in the middle. I’ve never had a tree bark tea before, so I at least have a new experience to look forward to. As I read up on it, I see that it’s also apparently good for your blood pressure? At least that’s what some companies are claiming. Also, Yogi uses it in one of their teas. Hmm.

The brew comes up to a brownish gold one would expect from a milder black tea. It still smells like wood, but it’s not as harsh in the steeped tea. The flavor is surprisingly not unpleasant, just new and a little strange. It almost tastes like black tea. It’s hard to describe. I guess this sort of tastes like tree bark.. it’s mild and kind of reminds me of the smell of wet paper towels and printer paper. Or a book. You know, that’s sort of what this tea tastes like – drinking a book.

Oh man, that tea sounds delicious for a Chinese Herbal Medicinal tea…usually those taste so nasty.

That’s what I hear! I’m a little afraid to explore that genre of tea for that reason.

Are we to say that bark taste is unlike twig taste in tea since Hojicha tea is twig tea and is very nice with a smoky aroma. I equate such teas with those who enjoys a good smoke. Mind you I have never smoke. I like roasted and almond like teas; yet I prefer green tea.

drank Jasmine Tea by Royal King

One of my friends who knows of my love for tea brought me a large tin (8 oz!!) of this back from her trip to New York. The secret to this rather generic jasmine green is to use water around the 165 degree range and to steep for no longer than 2 minutes. The directions on the tin to use boiling water and to steep for 5 minutes produces a horribly bitter cup of tea! It took some experimentation to find the magic steeping parameters, but carefully steeping this produces a pleasant cup. I found it mild and good enough for everyday drinking.

I am having this new dietary tea as part of my night time ritual since I cannot seem to get rid of the pounds. Try as I may, the pounds stay on. I did as instructed on the side of the tea box; to steep on tea bag in a cup of boiled water for five minutes.

Tea is dark reddish brown with an herbal like aroma and when tasting of the tea it is mildly sweet. When ever I drink this type of tea; I am reminded of a malted type brew but only it is tea and more like herbal tea.

I continue to enjoy this tea hotly as it is helping me to relax.

This tea tastes so good! It is very sweet and it helps when I’m suffering with monthly female issues. My friends love this tea and inquire where to buy.

I have this identical cannister but by Dragon Tea. I love to sip on this before bedtime. it is smooth sweet and floraly. I will also brew mix this with small amounts of flavored teas that i’ve grown tired of. I get this very reasonably priced in an Asian market I frequent

One of the more basic generic jasmine teas out there — inexpensive, frequently served in Thai and Vietnamese restaurants. Very strong (almost overpowering) jasmine flavour, perhaps to cover the relative weakness of the tea, but subtlety is not really something to be concerned about for a tea of this nature. Perfectly acceptable for day-to-day drinking (especially in the bagged form in situations where looseleaf isn’t a viable option), as long as it isn’t steeped to the point of bitterness.

Hi,
Like the tea but was concerned about pesticide levels. Any idea if it’s safe to drink everyday?
Thanks,
