I’m not a huge fan of plain black teas, but I like this better than some others I’ve had. There is a subtleness to the taste that is almost sweet, while still being earthy without any bitterness. I like this.

drank Hipsters in Wonderland by T-We Tea
274 tasting notes

I liked tea before tea was cool. (Sorry. I just couldn’t resist.)

This tea is one of the strangest teas I’ve ever drunk. Yes, there is green tea in it but there is far more carrot so it was less green tea with carrot, and more carrot tea. The jasmine did add a nice touch, but I wish it tasted like… well, tea.

Guess I’m not a hipster.

Preparation
8 min or more

drank Chai That by T-We Tea
550 tasting notes

I stopped by this shop for the first time last week and picked this up. I think ashmanra told me about this company. I didn’t know it existed, and it’s only a couple blocks from my work! Anyway, it’s a very modern, tiny little shop. They have their regular blends and then they have their “fancy pants” blends. Haha! Their teas seem to only come in 2.5 oz. packages. They don’t have a huge selection, but they did have 3 different chai’s. They have Chai Me (herbal), Chai This, and Chai That. I picked up Chai That because it had star anise in it. I think it’s supposed to be the spicier of the two black chai’s. I was a little disappointed in the packaging, because inside the box, the tea is in kind of a thin plastic bag with one of those curl-down ties, but once you open it, it’s not as secure.

The dry leaf of this tea smells great! There only seems to be one little star anise in my little bag though. Once steeped, it still smells great! However, the taste was disappointing. I thought the spice blend was pretty flat, meaning I couldn’t discern high or low notes. Oh well, it was fun to try, but apparently not the blend for me.

Mmmm… sipdown!
I have rather enjoyed this and will probably get more someday. I’m not a huge fan of Keemun but somehow it works here with the Nilgiri and Ceylon. I wouldn’t have thought of putting those together myself but it’s a tasty blend.

I’m happy to have my Silk Soymilk back for tea. Regarding plant based milks, I keep trying different ones and Silk Soymilk is definitely the best one for tea, it doesn’t impart much of a flavor but it makes things nice and creamy.

Tea of the morning here. The Bay Area weather can be so bizarre – yesterday we were at the Marin County Fair in San Rafael and it felt like it was in the 90’s. This morning in San Francisco it’s foggy and under 60 degrees. Brrr. I’m glad I have this tea!

p.s. – I had the most wonderful 4th of July yesterday at the Marin County Fair!

Strange, I thought I had done a tasting note for this tea but evidently not.

Tea of the morning. This is a local San Francisco company with a very unique blend of black teas here, assam, nilgiri and keemun. This gives it somewhat of a stout flavor profile with a bit of heft as well. Not really for the faint at heart, I definitely needed soymilk in this but it’s good for the morning time, hence the name. Nilgiri was an interesting choice to blend with the keemun and assam, which gives it an almost lemony component.

Can’t write too much more or I’ll be late for work!

Sound good to me!

TeaBrat

I liked it better than I thought I would especially given I am not a huge keemun fan…

QueenOfTarts

This sounds yummy!

drank Renegade by T-We Tea
2420 tasting notes

So it’s been a while since I’ve had this one and I went to the T-We website and saw they have some new stuff, I need to go back soon and check out some of their other offerings. :)

Anyway this is a very strong and in your face blend which is why it’s called RENEGADE, I guess! This morning it seems really strong to me, almost a bit like coffee. The cinnamon is very pronounced too… It’s really good and getting me moving today!

I discovered this tea company recently when I was at the Treasure Island flea market and it will be worthy of a blog post pretty soon. :)

Don’t know why there isn’t a photo of this tea on their website. Anyway I thought this combination sounded intriguing: Indonesian java black tea, Chinese keemun black tea, cacao nibs and cinnamon.

It is interesting. The cinnamon is a very predominate flavor.The cacao is pretty light but the black tea base has a bit of smokiness. I can’t remember how long I steeped this for exactly because I’ve been picking up and trying to get my laundry done. I’m sure I steeped it for at least 5 minutes and then added some soymilk to add a bit of creaminess. It’s good! The blend is really creative and I look forward to trying more from this San Francisco company.

a chocolate chai? neato!

My coworker told me about this company awhile back, and she just invited me to an event they’re having on Friday. I’ll find the info for you.

TeaBrat

I got the invite too, not sure if I can make it but will try to stop by. :)

Amy Oh: I just found out today that one of the owners of this tea company is a young man who was in youth group with my daughter! I knew his parents, though not terribly well. (It is a huge church with four locations and multiple services at each.) Small world, isn’t it? I will keep an eye out for future reviews on this young man’s venture!

TeaBrat

groovy!

drank Cocorosa by T-We Tea
60 tasting notes

I received a small tin of this as a Christmas present from a subset of in-laws.

In the tin, this tisane blend smells faintly of the rose petals and that “dusty” smell that most dried roses have; but none of the orange slices or coconut pieces.

Brewed, this tisane still smells of the rose petals.

I added a bit of honey, because I have to have “sweet” tea.

Aficionados of extremely delicate tisanes would probably enjoy this, but I prefer a bolder, black tea that can chase away English rain, despite living in Texas.
