Really not too bad for bagged cheap tea, but also not super special. I would definitely use in a pinch, with an almost citrussy aroma that I like as a standby. Recommended for travel or guests who won’t appreciate the fancy stuff.

Very weak tea. Not the same tea with smaller amounts of tea leaves. The color , aroma and taste is not of quality you would expect from Salada. Just bought my last box today. Might be better for someone else .

Preparation
2 tsp 5 OZ / 147 ML

I think decaffeinated green tea bags are normally among the most unpleasant-tasting teas on the market.

This one really rocks. The honey is a brilliant idea for counterbalancing the mouth-puckeringly bitter flavor that decaf green can have.

I added some extra honey tonight, because I want dessert, but I have no business eating anything with more calories, than, oh, I don’t know, a Rice Krispie treat. (Yup, I wolfed one of those down while my water heated) The honey sweetened the tea a little more, and made it really buttery-tasting and smooth.

Mmmm! Perfect paper-writing companion.

No rest for the weary… Thank God my vacation is next week!

Cheers, Steepster friends!

I bought this tea on a whim a couple months ago, as I had recently run out of my Twinings White Tea blend and could not find it in my local stores. I find it to be a very tasteless, dull blend that more often than not feels like I’m drinking hot water. On the plus side, it’s a cheap and quick alternative if you’re strapped in a pinch, but I’d recommend other white tea blends way before this one.

Made a mug of this because I was around a friend who has strep throat (oh no!) Although its primary function is to be medicinal, this blend is actually quite tasty, especially considering that it is decaf.

The honey flavor is there without being overly sweet, and the lemon adds nice, almost floral notes to it. The green tea base is vegetal, and something in the aftertaste reminds me of melted butter. Yum!

I’ve always been impressed with Salada. They’re extremely cheap, but extremely well-blended and downright delicious, teas.

Tried making this with a lower water temp to avoid cooking the leaves.

It worked quite well! A lot more of the sweetness in this blend came through. It is very fruity. The plum is almost enough to knock you over. I personally don’t mind a lot of fruityness (as long as the base isn’t rooibos) but I would caution anyone who prefers more subtle fruit notes to try something else first.

A pretty good tea though it tasted more like a nutty oolong than a green.

Steepster has changed! What is this? I mean, it looks really clean and new, but at the same time it’s just a bit strange. Ah well, on to the tea.

I’m drinking the decaf version of this. There wasn’t a decaf version listed and I didn’t feel like making one. Blah, I’m lazy, i know.

Anyways, I wanted tea, wanted something with no caffeine, as I have been drinking a lot of coffee lately since I have a very lovely purple Keurig now, and I wanted to use my pretty white tea pot. :) So, I’m waiting for it to steep now…

I uh…hmm…. takes another sip.

I don’t know about this one. :/ I should note that I am drinking it in a tea cup (yay!) and so many have over-sweetened it, but it’s got like a overly-sweet, honey aftertaste that I don’t like right now. I’ve drank this before and liked it, so it may be my mood and again, the possibility of too much sugar.

I’m really starting to not like bagged teas, though, really. Unless they are TOP quality, without fail, always good brands, then usually bagged teas fall short.

Continues sipping, adds more tea to dilute the sweetness…

It’s a bit better when not so sweet, but really it’s just dull and not very flavorful. :( I’d switch to Earl Grey but that has caffeine.

sigh Ah well. I’m going to have to get my mom to bring my good loose leaf over next time she visits. I have a great loose leaf white tea.

On a side note, I actually am excited for the added details of this new tea page! <3 Yay!

drank White Asian Plum by Salada

Mmmmmmm! A beautiful tea. Light, just a hint of fruit. Brews a pale brown color and goes down smoothly.

The ingredients say that it contains blackberry, which is a plus. Blackberries are my very favorite berry. I know they can sometimes make teas really bitter, but they definitely don’t in this brew! They help the plum taste come out.

Delightful tea to wake up with!

UGHHHHHHH. I HAVE SO MUCH STUFF TO DO IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.

Like, seriously, I’m just about in panic mode. I’m convinced that I’m going to get sick again if I don’t watch out. My eating has been atrocious, and my sleep has been sucking, too.

Here’s to hoping that this light, fruity, echinacea-infused bag of goodness will save me! I haven’t had it in a while, and I forgot how delicious it is.

Good tea to have with dinner or before bed. It tastes like honey, but not so much lemon. Fine by me!

This time I tried a lower water temp, and it tasted much better. I’m getting into the science of proper tea-making, I think. I read somewhere that using boiling water on greens “cooks” the leaves, thereby damaging the quality of the flavor. So, no more boiling water on greens for me, even on my bagged teas.

Not stellar, but not bad—a little of the sweet, cereally flavor associated with a better-grade green tea in this one.

I recall saying this one was like a little oasis in a tea barren wasteland.

One year, I got some Salada regular green for my m-i-l for a stocking stuffer and she went on and on about how good it is. At the time I snickered and just attributed to grocery-brand taste, but this was a real surprise.

K S

Oh I didn’t notice this was decaf. I’ve had the regular. M-i-l is correct. Now if I run upon the decaf one I’ll know to grab it as well.

Nooooooo! I woke up with a sore throat and congestion this morning! UGHHHH.

This was the first thing I reached for. (Along with a Tylenol caplet, of course.) I swear it works. I love this echinacea blend best because you can steep it for however long you need to, and it never gets bitter. And Vitamin C is always a good thing when battling a cold.

Not looking forward to November this year. Something tells me it’s gonna be a doozy.

I’m on a total Echinacea/ Vitamin C kick right now, with cold and flu season fast approaching. This tea is pretty good. I taste more of the honey flavor than the lemon, but I didn’t really mind. Don’t steep it for too long, or it will become bitter, unlike its peach-nectarine flavored, caffeinated counterpart by the same company. This one is nice because it’s decaf, so you still get the antioxidant benefits of the green tea without being up all night, should you decide you need an extra immune-system boost before bed. It also has Vitamin C in it, which is always good. As with all Echinacea teas, drink in moderation, because otherwise it will lose its effectiveness.

This is a delicious bagged green tea! The flavor is perfectly balanced, and you can leave the teabag in the water for as long as you want- it doesn’t get bitter. I’ve started drinking it because it’s cold and flu season, and I’ve heard good things about Echinacea’s positive effects on boosting the immune system. Be careful, though- if you take Echinacea too frequently, it will start to lose its effectiveness. Drink this tea ONLY whenever you feel a cold coming on, until you feel better! It’s delicious and it works!

My father-in-law heard me talking about my love for white tea, so while he was out food shopping, he brought back a box of this (can you tell my in-laws are awesome yet?!). I had it unsweetened as I had it during dinner (I feel it’s a waste to add sweetener when I’m eating something mildly sweet since you can’t really taste the sweetness that way – my sandwich had a juicy tomato on it)! I only steeped for just under 2 minutes and I waited till my water had cooled down to 175.

It’s mild, very smooth and with very little astringency. Pretty nice, but I’ve gotten awfully spoiled by the loose white teas in my collection. There’s just something about them! Not too bad though for tea on the fly.

I used about half a tsp of sugar, what I normally use in Green Tea. This tea, for a pre-packaged bag, is actually fairly tasty. Not much work put in for a simple Green Tea. The color is a bit darker, the flavor (with sugar) is a good mix of umami and some bitters.

I was able to taste this tea at my office building. They select a few different teas to try for us, and this was one.

I drank this as a child (8-12 years old) at camp and I think it assisted in a lifelong “caffeine” or perhaps “theine” is a better word. However it was bad tea! I have not had since the early 90’s. Worse than Lipton. Great little proverbs on the tea tags however.

A review of Green Tea (100% All Natural) by Salada

This Salada tea is sporting a new package; promising for a simple & smooth Green Tea. Since it all starts with the tea leaf. Each tea leaf that goes into Salada 100% Green Tea is meticulously hand picked from the lush tea gardens of the far East and once brewed, Salada Green Tea produces a delicately smooth flavor and natural sweetness.

I use one tea bag in my cup and pour the hot water into my cup and leaving it to steep for few minutes. Tea’s color is golden and tea’s aroma is mildly vegetal. When I taste the tea it is not astringent but does have that leafy green taste to it. It taste and smells like cleanly cut green grass that one sees when passing by a house who may have mowed their lawns and some of the grassy residue from their machine is left to the side of the yard. It is a lovely smell making one think of a clear day with no haze, with just a slight breeze in the air wafting of the freshly cut grass.

This Salada tea is good tea that is all.

A review of Green Tea (100% Natural) by Salada

I have been taking it easy and drinking this Salada tea as part of my daily life style, in that I want a simple cup of tea with not much fussing or reviewing.

I take one tea bag and with fresh water, allow this to boil and removing it from the heat and letting it cool for one minute. I then pour the water into my cup with the tea bag already in it and leave to steep for a few minutes.

After the allotted time, I take my tea and remove the tea bag from my cup and simply begin to drink it. It is mildly astringent, vegetal in the tasting; leafy like. Color is a golden liquor and smells slightly green in scent. One can tell straight away that this is a green tea. There is nothing hidden about this tea. It is a bowl of salad greens warmed slightly.

I remember sampling Salada Organic tea and did not like it; funny how our views changes with time perhaps depending on frame of mind.

I am saying that I like this green tea by Salada tea.

Nice to know this is tasty. My mother-in-law (not much of a tea drinker) loves it.
