drank Guurl Grey by T-We Tea
7122 tasting notes

Thanks for sharing this one omgsrsly. I thought this one would be too much for me, but brewed it’s a fairly subdued version of an earl grey. Not intensely blergamot, nor is there really a floral component to this one. Nothing I need to repurchase, given I’m not a fan of earl grey, but this one is pretty laid back and gentle :)

tried this one today..not sure if it’s the age of the tea or how i brewed it but it was largely flavourless with a hint of coconut. Sad really. I’ll hold off rating just in case, as the combination to me sounded like something that could be super tasty.

another from missB through omgsrsly and another fail for me. There’s something in this one that just doesn’t work for me, though it’s not unpleasant to drink.

omgsrsly likes to torment me with things i despise. :) this is another one of those teas. Lavender. blech. i also don’t need more in the boob department haha. I don’t really like this one – it’s just not anything delicious and the lavender is just too much.

OMGsrsly

Hahaha. Flower overload!!!

OMGsrsly

I don’t remember if I set some aside for you or maybe MissB put it in her bag for you.

2806 tasting notes

Tea of the afternoon from the T-We shop in the Crocker Galleria. I went in looking for a rooibos blend but decided to try this instead. It’s a blend of white tea, coconut and cardamom.

I happen to love cardamom and this smelled really good in the shop. I wanted something with low caffeine so hopefully this doesn’t keep me awake later on. I’d say the cardamom is very strong in this blend and overpowers the other ingredients a bit. The coconut is present in the background as a bit of a milky/creamy taste. It’s a bit difficult to pick out the flavor that the white tea is contributing to this. Overall this is a really nice blend if you like cardamom. I tried mine plain but I think it would be good with a touch of sweetener and would be VERY good with coconut milk or coconut sugar. hmmm.

Did you know that cardamom is supposedly an anti-depressant? there’s something about it that is making me happy. ;)

Flavors: Cardamon, Cream

What is the smallest quantity they sell tea in at their brick & mortar location?

TeaBrat

You can go in and buy a cup of tea for $3. Otherwise it’s a box of tea that has 25 servings. Looks to me about 3-4 oz. in the box. I would love if they had sample kits!

TeaBrat

cool, I didn’t see any option like that in the store. I’ll have to ask next time I go in !

Marzipan

There are several I would love to split if you’re interested.

TeaBrat

You meant split the samples? I don’t know if they sell those at the store but I’ll find out. :)

Marzipan

No split the larger quantities.

TeaBrat

send me a PM and we’ll talk ;)

drank Dolores Day by T-We Tea
2806 tasting notes

I’m finally getting around to trying this herbal blend I got in S.F. a few weeks ago. Dolores Day… evidently named for Dolores Park, a place the locals like to go hang out on the weekends when it’s sunny. This is definitely a good blend with lemon balm, peppermint and lavender. I don’t normally like lavender in tea but it’s subtle and nice and the lemon balm gives it a pleasant, herby note. I also feel like this would be good with some turbinado sugar but I’m trying to resist that for now. T-We makes some really nice blends and this just makes me happy for some reason ….

MissB

Every place is a tea place! I’ll send you some of what I have left.

Sil

The young man who owns this company went to our church years ago. His family is so nice, and his mom just wrote a book. I think it is called From Wedding Bells to Hand Grenades. It is all about being an army wife. Her name is Nicole Lee if you want to look up the book!

Sil

oh that’s really interesting ash!

drank Chai Me by T-We Tea

Something about this was painfully off when I had it – so much so that I packed up the rest immediately and planned on sharing it with someone who might like it more. Can’t remember what it was, but it just wasn’t to my tastes. Maybe the rooibos, maybe the combination of flavors? Dunno, but it made me sad, because I love this company to bits.

Finished off my box of this today, I never added it to my cupboard but it was gone fairly quicky after I purchased it. I drank this a lot as an after lunch digestive type of tea, my currently I’m on a ginger & peppermint mix or just plain ginger. I may get some more at some point but I still have a cupboard full of tea to drink at home. =)

Kirkoneill1988

lunch digestive seems like a good idea :)

Afternoon tea that I got at local company T-We tea in San Francisco. I wasn’t expecting too much from this blend but it’s really good in my opinion. Of course, I love ginger and that is the predominant flavor of this blend: ginger with a slight hint of orange. There’s white tea in it too but it’s actually hard to find to detect the white tea in it. I might have to go back and get some more of this next week. If you don’t like ginger I wouldn’t bother though.

I definitely felt this was warming, invigorating and SPICY! I also found if you buy a glass tumbler from them they will give you a free cup of tea every time you go in. Pretty good deal if you’re in the area, the tumbler would pay for itself in a little over 10 visits. I think I will be doing that more often :)

This one I was really hesitant about, but it’s actually really freaking good. Eggnog and earl grey, who woulda thought.

I really really want to try some of their teas.

They’re not bad, but this wasn’t really the earliest of earl greys. I think the name is a huge draw. :)

What with the jasmine blossoms and citrus peels, I thought this tea was going to be over the top floral soapy… but it’s not!

It’s actually a super mild earl grey with some additional floral notes. Not bad, but not really enough, either. As in, it’s not distinct enough or different enough to find a permanent place in my cupboard.

That being said, I really enjoyed the mug I had this morning. Yum!

Thank you for sharing, MissB!

drank Boobage by T-We Tea
2160 tasting notes

Aww, it looks like MissB didn’t try this one (it was the lavender, wasn’t it?)! So now it’s up to me to review a tea that I… don’t really have any application for. Oh well, it smells good!

There is definitely a LOAD of lavender in this tea. Sniffing it, I can also smell the raspberry leaf, but wow it’s almost soap. And it takes a lot of lavender to make things smell soapy for me.

Steeped, it smells like herbal soap tea. Umm… I’m kinda scared.

It’s been sitting there for about 15 minutes while I putter around and consider drinking it.

Well, it’s not terrible. It’s a bit sweet from the “anise seeds” (aka fennel) and the lavender. The raspberry leaf is tasty enough. I can’t tell there’s fenugreek in it. But I would still much rather be drinking something else.

I think that if it’s a tea you need, this would be a much tastier option than some others, but as a tea I don’t need… I’m gonna pass.

“It’s been sitting there for about 15 minutes while I putter around and consider drinking it.” Haha, nice visual! I’ve definitely done this myself. :)

OMGsrsly

Sometimes the tea just doesn’t seem appealing…

MissB

I’m not sure I felt okay reviewing it honestly, and thus.. Let you guys do it instead! Lol

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
344 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

drank Chai That by T-We Tea
818 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.
