Wow, this sure is tasty tonight!

It’s a green, though, so it’s not something I’d ever really reach for.

Thanks for letting me try it, Sil!

This is a really standout flavored black tea. The citrus is very pleasant, and easily detected, but there is also a sweetness that comes from chocolate and vanilla flavors too that makes this one particularly spectacular!

I got a couple bags of this from Sil, but even with the fancy variable temperature kettle, I tend to reach for black teas.

This is pretty good. It’s a green tea, but most of the green tea-ness that I don’t care for is masked by the coconut.

I wouldn’t go out and buy this one, but it’s pleasant enough to sip on while I make the dinner I forgot to have.

thank you kaylee!

this is a fairly average green tea with coconut. It’s not bad, but if i was going to drink a coconut tea, i’d probably stick with mango coconut from tea forte :)

My mom and cousin came home with this tea for me. I had the tea with a very small amount of honey so that i didn’t over-sweeten. It is very light and the word smooth came to mind the moment it hit my lips. The blueberry smell is incredible but the taste of blueberry does not at all overwhelm the green tea leaves. I wish i knew what kind of flowers were in it because they taste lovely and really add to the dry presentation of the tea. (This is my first tea log so i hope i did ok. )

update on the iced tea experiment (hot brew method):
This is substantially better iced than hot. Still a little too sweet for my taste, but I think others would enjoy this level of sweetness. The coconut flavor is present but mild.

Tried this again today. I wanted to make some iced tea and thought the sweetness of this might work nicely. I used a large pitcher, two tea bags, and water that I’m hoping was around 150 degrees (my kingdom for an affordable kettle with temperature settings). Lost track of how long I steeped it, but it was a while.

I lost patience waiting for it to cool and poured myself a warm cup. It tastes much better this time. The green tea takes prominence. The Coconut/pineapple flavor is still too strong, but the tea is actually tolerable now. Hope it’ll taste even better iced…

This is one of only three teas I actually purchased from the Coffee & Tea Festival. I enjoyed the sample because it was delicately sweet and the coconut flavor wasn’t overwhelming.

Dry, the tea smells sweet, like apple Jolly Ranchers, with a hint of coconut. The package didn’t include steeping directions, so I used nearly boiling water and tasted it at three steeping intervals – 3 minutes, 5 minutes, and 8 minutes. At 3 minutes, it was sweet but very weak. At 5 minutes, it was stronger but still very sweet. It basically smells and tastes like a Jolly Rancher. At 8 minutes, the green tea flavor came out more. At that point I gave up timing and just drank the tea, leaving the teabag in. It gets better the longer it steeps, but there’s never really any complexity to this tea. It might be good as an iced tea (no sweetener needed) or instead of dessert. Overall, I am not impressed. I don’t know why I liked it more at the tea festival than I do now, but I wouldn’t buy it again at this price point ($10 for 18 sachets, though the content of the sachets is the same quality as loose leaf).

This doesn’t resteep well. The flavor is better – much less sweet – but it is very weak.

This is a very nice tea and fruit blend. I bought it on a whim on vacation last Fall because I was feeling sick and needed to rest with a cup of hot tea. The only ingredients listed on the container is sencha and hibiscus. You can simultaneously taste the sweetness of the hibiscus and the earthy green of the tea. Neither flavor overwhelms or is bitter. The tea brews up a lovely pink color and tastes equally nice with more or less brewing. I really like brewing up a whole pot of this on a cold winter day and curling up with a book. There are good sized sencha leaves and bits of hibiscus. I liked this so much that I wanted to buy another container when I found that they don’t sell this blend anymore.

Wow. What a perfect tea for a hot summer day. The coconut added sweetness (but not too sweet!) that made me feel as though I was whisked away to a tropical island. I like that the integrity of the green tea was maintained by the subtlety of the coconut. A must-try for anyone dealing with Summer temperatures right now!

Very clean taste. A little honey makes it even better.

The tea smells amazing, both before and after it is brewed. However it tastes no different from a pure green tea. Not a bad flavor at all, as I quite like the taste of green teas – just disappointing given such an amazing aroma.

I’ve reduced the amount of tea to steep and I am liking this a lot better for an everyday light green tea.

several lost opportunities- grape and allspice/clove/cinnamon notes in dry leaf and wet, but did not adequately deliver in liquor. Score = 82 on Walker Tea Review #277

Sorry T Salon- this one gets a vote of “no confidence” from me. High astringency with a lack of characteristic flavors/aromas. Score of 79 on Review #270 at Walker Tea Review dot com.

This is my choice summery light green tea. I usually do not like my green teas sweetened, but with this I serve it iced with either rock sugar or agave nectar. Just enough to have a hint of sweet to bring out the citrus and pineapple. It’s very refreshing.

I’m a big fan of green teas with mint. I figured this Moroccan Mint would taste like most brands that I have had. A nice sweet mint main note with the green tea on the back. I was wrong. There’s a lot of green tea in here (gunpowder) and not enough of the mint.

I enjoy Moroccan Mint because if you have the right amount of mint, it has this pleasant sweet taste that is great iced and even with some agave nectar.

Now, I do get in the mood occasionally for a good green tea taste and I like this in that retrospect, but right now it is summer and I still want more mint.

If you want more mint flavor, you would probably like the Mandarin Mint from T Salon. It’s really good when iced for the summer. One of my summer faves.

A fine oolong with an appropriately nutty flavour. Deceptively strong, however — unless you have a cast-iron stomach, drink it with a snack or a meal.
