This tea has a lovely jasmine flavor. Very soothing.

This is one of my favourite chai teas. I like this blend even better than Silk Road’s other chai made with black tea.

This reminds me of the classic green tea served at sushi restaurants. The toasted brown rice lends a nice flavour to the tea.

I was not a fan of this tea. I don’t think the rooibos and rose petal flavours complimented each other well.
I’ve been drinking this tea quite often in the evenings before bed. It has a lovely lavender flavour that is not overpowered by the mint.

I’m not usually a big fan of mint teas, but this one blew me away. The pink peppercorns and the hibiscus really help to mellow out the sharpness of the peppermint. Hands down, one of my favourite teas ever.
Ooh! I haven’t had this tea in a while! Such a delicious after work treat, along with some caramel apple. Even though I’m just a temp, they got me one too! Chomp chomp, om nom nom.
Nom nom freaking nom. I did two steeps of this today, the first one I made in a thermos before I left home, and I added a tonne of honey (I’m sick… boo!). It steeped for about 3 hours so it was extremely flavourful and delicious, and the honey helped with the throat scratchies puerh seems to intensify. I steeped it again for a couple hours, and it was just weak. If I’m going to steep this one over throughout the day, I think I need to steep it for 5-10 minutes, pour it into another mug to drink, then steep the leaves again in the thermos. Otherwise all the goodness gets pulled out with the first steep!
Sadly, I’m going to have to put this one away till I’m feeling better, as the throat scratchies were very sad-making.
Apparently I have some of this tea at home! I was trying to dig something out of my friends cupboard I hadn’t had before, or at least not that frequently. Oh well.
I’m having this iced with honey today. Brewed double strength (1 tsp per 6-8oz water-that-cooled-5-mins) and poured it over ice, then added ice till the cup was full. I think I ended up with about 16 oz, but I’m not sure.
I added 1/2 tsp honey to it while it was brewing, which was too much. I do like honey with lemongrassy teas, though! Just maybe a lot less next time. A hint of honey rather than it being a prominent flavour.
This tea is so good. I love it iced so much. I hope I can replicate the tastiness at home later, once I’ve finished my laundry!
Quite enjoyable! The best chocolate mint rooibos I’ve had came from a tiny tea store in a little town that I carefully rationed when I learned the store had closed. Chocolate Panda isn’t the same but it’s quite a good substitute, plus it’s got some added flavours. This tea delivers the quality taste that I’ve come to expect from all Silk Road teas. Overall: yum!
It took me a while to warm up to this tea due to an unfortunate lemongrass essential oil incident in the past, but now a fan. It’s light and fruity with a bite of lemongrass. Caffeine-free but with a bit of a pick me up that perfect for early evening tea drinking.
Ice brewed this overnight, and am doing a second brew now.
1 tsp tea in my gravity infuser, filled with ice, then placed over a big mug overnight. It smells SO good, the cherry coming to the front. Sadly, the overnight brew is a bit bitter. Do I have the proportions wrong? Was it just a bad idea to leave it overnight? Maybe I should have put it in the fridge. The drips from the second brew are delicious.
Thank you, ShayneBear for suggesting this. I’ve seen the method everywhere since you mentioned it, and finally decided to try. It may still be chilly, but the sun is calling for loads of iced teas.
This is better. Moved onto this from Teavana’s Spiced Mandarin Oolong.
This one is not sour, yet still has citrus and spice. Not quite what I’m aiming for in a mandarin spice tea, but amazing and well-loved nonetheless.
Also, since I’m a classy lady, I didn’t bother with a basket so the orange peels are floating in my cup. I keep accidentally drinking one, and then spitting it back. Oh yeah. You know you live alone when… :)
Super happy sip down! I cold steeped the rest of my small tin in a jug overnight, and unfortunately, I still taste broccoli tempura.
This is a nice green oolong but I don’t think it will become a staple of mine. I’m on my second steep of this already and the floral and crisp mineral notes are the most dominant, with some milky butter creeping in subtly. It reminds me a bit of a tieguanyin oolong, in regards to floral crisp flavours (don’t ask me what kind of flowers).
This would be a good casual evening oolong; it’s not fancy or expensive and that makes it strangely accessible, if not particularly exciting.
I had a tiny tin sample of this that I passed along to school friend today. She’s not a big tea drinker but she likes green oolong! She’s my green oolong buddy.
really clear, sweet earthy green tea.
excellent multiple steeps
First mug of this one made at home. 1 tsp tea in 16oz water. I made it in a mug then dumped it into a travel mug to take on a walk. The perfect end to a big (late!) brunch with my brother.
I’m drinking my last serving of this, the one I bought maybe 5 or 6 years ago. It still tastes good, although a bit dusty, and I’m wondering how the new stuff will compare! The puerh is in the background, isn’t fishy, isn’t too strong. The cinnamon is there and sweetens the tea. The citrus (which I could still smell when I scooped the tea out this morning!) elevates it beyond a simple cinnamon tea.
This is definitely a comfort tea. I used to drink it every day at work, when I had a contract position at an office that resulted in me responding to maybe 2-3 phone calls and up to 10 emails per day. Yeah, that was a simple job. I listened to a lot of podcasts, and drank a lot of tea. Here’s hoping I can find another contract like that once I finish in April, so I can focus on my theory class and my research assistant/admin work in my off hours. Yes, I will need the three jobs to pay my student loan back. The numbers frighten me!
I had forgotten how good this tea is, and am now kicking myself for only picking up a small tin. Oh well. I can always ‘borrow’ some from my BFF, who got a refill for her ginormous tin. :)
This green tea is so smooth and delicate. The “sour cherry” is reminiscent of sour cherry blasters, but MUCH more delicate and floral. It’s excellent both hot and iced, although the flavour comes out a bit more as the tea cools. If I had more, I’d bring some to work as this tea is perfect just on its own.
