drank Strawberry Pickin' by Tea Oh

Smells like strawberries, but doesn’t really taste like it. There is a subtle hint of starwberries in the taste. Not a bad green tea though. Excellent Iced.

drank Cocoa Caramel Chai Tea by Tea Oh
4323 tasting notes

Starting my day with this tea…. getting a late start on the day because the morning was filled with errands and I didn’t have time to make tea before I got started.

Now, I can sit back and relax a little bit, and enjoy this chai!

I brewed it in water – strong – and added a splash of milk to the finished product. I didn’t want to froth the milk this time around because I wanted to taste it first without the milk (I’m finding that I like more and more chai teas without milk)… but I found that the chocolate and caramel notes are so much richer with the milk.

There is a pleasing balance of spice, chocolate and caramel… I like that I can taste chocolate, caramel and spice all at once, without having to really TRY to focus or think about what I’m tasting to see if it’s there… because, with this tea, the flavors are in there.

Even better, I can taste the tea too. This is a really good chai!

Pretty much all of Tea Oh’s chais have been making me drool. XD

drank Pumpkin Pie by Tea Oh
79 tasting notes

I love pumpkin so I was excited to try this. Sadly I was disappointed. Very flavourful in terms of spices. But not so much the pumpkin. Tea also tastes pretty bitter to me, but that may be how black teas go, and i’m just not used to drinking them without tons of sugar.

Maybe higher temp, shorter steep? Less leaf? I’m still trying to find the perfect pumpkin or pumpkin pie tea- it’s a shame this wasn’t it. :(

Elyse

I mean it smelled like pumokin until i brewed it :(

drank Warm Apple Pie by Tea Oh
6770 tasting notes

This is pleasantly scented and tastes like an apple flavored black tea. The ‘pie’ hints are more towards the end of the sip and in the aftertaste. There is a slight crusty bitterness in the aftertaste which remind me of the crusty pie, I suppose. This is a nice offering from Tea Oh!

OH!!!!! THERE IT IS!!!!!! Mild AND Smooth! Super Creamy! The same amount with 2 splashes of Vanilla Rice Milk! Well….hello Rhino! I see you are FINALLY comfortable in your own skin!!!! LOL

Yup! I found it!!! It works! It makes sense now!


EDIT****

TeaEqualsBliss

Afterthought on this one…the aftertaste reminds me of ’just eating Cheerios" type taste…but ONLY in the aftertaste.

__Morgana__

When you figure out “males sense” let me know. ;-)

Cofftea

LOL Morgana! Humane error too;) “You know you’ve had too much matcha when you can’t type cohearantly.” TeaEqualsBliss, I’m cutting you off:)

TeaEqualsBliss

WHOA!!! LOL – Guess so…I should edit that! LOL

-Jessica-

Oooooho I so want to try a white matcha!!!! I’m glad you go the recipe down for this one! hehe

oOTeaOo

white matcha?! I’ve never heard of that! I def want to try this!

Cofftea

I wonder how this compare’s to Muzi Tea’s version (other than this being insanely cheaper.

Jillian

Damn woman! You’re finding all the cool Canadian tea companies before I do! ;P

This is definitely an intriguing tea – never mind that I’ve never even heard of white matcha; Kenya generally isn’t known for its white tea OR its matcha.

Cofftea

The owner of Tea Oh (who’s on steepster) said that more African people are drinking matcha like teas so they make their own.

Cofftea

I’m watching NatGeo and White Rhino I guess is also a form of pot- definitely made me laugh. Strangely this isn’t the 1st tea I’ve encountered w/ a pto connection…

Okay…so…The other 2 notes were based on 2 teaspoons-worth, maybe a little less. This one is based on less than a teaspoon. I think I found LESS is MORE with this one. It’s not AS astringent but still really bold and IN YOUR FACE. It’s much more creamy and smooth with this amount…but I wouldn’t call it a mild flavor, it’s pretty forward and wants to be heard! LOL

I will finally rate this one with my 3rd attempt because this is more drinkable than my humane error attempts! LOL

TeaEqualsBliss

OH! Might I add…this is PLAIN and as it cools for a minute or so I am enjoying it more…

Cofftea

So does this taste anything like traditional green matcha?

TeaEqualsBliss

Well, because I am not a pro on matcha’s I am probably not the best to say…but I don’t think so…I think it tastes WAY different than ANY of the matcha’s I have ever had!

Okay…I decided to put a few splashes of Vanilla Rice Milk in this one…with the half cup I had left. I know the description says mild and smooth…but WOW…I really don’t think it’s mild! I’m not saying that it’s good, bad, or indifferent…just that this is a BOLD BREW! With the Vanilla Rice Milk it made this smell a little bit more like it did when it was the dry powder but it’s still very strong for taste! It’s a little bitter – still astringent, but creamier, I guess. Again, no rating for the 2nd time in a row because I really think my outcome is humane error.

Attempt #3 – starting FRESH – coming soon…

Cofftea

Good grief woman, you’re gonna be so hyper after this! I LOVE IT:) This is the one I mentioned for Tea Oh’s contest.

TeaEqualsBliss

Me too!!!! It intrigued me!

TeaEqualsBliss

Again, but WAIT…there’s MORE!!!!!

Plain.

Dry aroma reminds me of a subtle mint chocolate type smell.

Post Whisk with just water smells like, well, hard to describe, cream! The color is like coffee with about 2 creamers in it…in comparison.

Taste with just water…well, I think I might want to use less of the matcha powder if just with water…it’s a STRONG tasting one! WOW!!! It’s astringent but wants to be smooth and creamy. I really think I used too much too soon with this one. More attempts to follow…

Cofftea

I’m jealous:) Never mind that I just had 6oz of matcha delivered… lol!

Batrachoid

I just bought 5oz and I’m as green with envy as this tea is white too! It sounds fascinating and delicious. Now to decide if I should get this one or the Green Tea Lovers’ first…

TeaEqualsBliss

I’m envious after reading about the GreenTeaLovers one! LOL :) Haven’t tried that one yet! After I read that review I thought about trying this one again! I wonder how they compare!???

Batrachoid

I know. I just checked Tea Oh! and they’re sold out of the white matcha but an order from Green Tea Lovers costs more. I guess I’ll wait and try both at once? >.< 不公平なぁ。

drank Earls and Pearls by Tea Oh
4323 tasting notes

Finishing off the last of the sample I have of this…

I must say that I REALLY like this tea. I don’t think I gave it enough credit yesterday when I first tasted it and I’m going to increase the numeric rating a bit because it really deserves it.

The Earl Grey here (or should I say, bergamot?) is much more subtle than one might expect from an Earl Grey tea, but that is alright, because where it lacks in the bergamot it more than makes up for with the very unique finishing note. It is creamy, sweet, and I don’t know how else to describe it… it tastes so good.

This tea is quite a treat for me.

drank Strawberry Pickin' by Tea Oh
6770 tasting notes

This smells AWESOME! Fresh Strawberries!!!!!!!

The taste is basically 50/50 Green Tea/Strawberry tastes and this is VERY nice!!! There is no funky aftertaste. The aroma lingers more than anything…makes me want to go pick strawberries! Ironic! :)

Jillian

That’s cool – usually with fruity green teas you can either barely taste the flavour or it’s that hideously fake-tasting stuff.

drank Pecan Pie by Tea Oh
6770 tasting notes

This couldn’t smell MORE like Pecan Pie! The aroma is RIGHT ON! After infusing there is a bit of texture to the liquid. The taste is VERY nutty with the Rooibos taste standing right by it’s side. The aftertaste somewhat resembles the pie crust type taste, I suppose. This is alright!

This is a very unusual Earl Grey. The finish is very different… it does have a creamy-ish finish, slightly sweet with just a hint of citrus.

This … kind of tastes like an Earl Grey creamsicle – made with bergamot oranges.

It’s nice. I’m enjoying this unusual twist on Earl Grey! It is also quite nice as it cools… this would be very nice and refreshing as an iced tea.

drank White Peony by Tea Oh
53 tasting notes

Steeped this cup for probably 5 minutes (I really should use steep.it more often!) as I kinda forgot about it… but I had hoped the longer steeping might help bring out the flavours.

It maybe helped give a little flavour boost, but it gets bordering on bitter when steeped too long. I’ve gotta lower my rating….sorry! :(

The spice is just as strong as the caramel and the chocolate notes are nice. I did use a large amount of this blend to infuse…I might try less next time to see the difference. This is a hearty blend of flavors!

drank Pomtini by Tea Oh
6770 tasting notes

This is mostly Pomegranate flavored with a hint of vanilla on top of black tea. It’s very fruity, a tad bitter – but in a good and sassy way! I’m starting my day with this HOT but think it would be ever better ICED.

drank Kiwi Berry by Tea Oh
53 tasting notes

I figured out the secret to successful iced tea with this stuff. Use LOTS of “tea”! Wowie, it steeped up really dark red, almost like beet juice, and had much more flavor this go around. How unfortunate that I figured this out at nearly the end of my package.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

This is my first TeaOh Tea and I must say I am pleased! This is very strong for a white and DOES live up to the creamy claims in the description. I guess I could pick up on some Earl Grey hints but it’s not overly so. I’m completely fine with that tho. As for the aftertaste it is very clean and crisp – almost celery-like. There is a bit of juiciness to it as well which contribute to the flavors’ overall POP. I’m thinking this will be incredible ICED as well.

I LOVE the name of this tea!!

drank White Peony by Tea Oh
53 tasting notes

I’ve had this tea perhaps three times now but I’ve avoiding logging it in hopes that the next cup would be spectacular. It’s not that it’s bad – far from it! I do enjoy it.
The flavor is subtle, and not bitter in any way.
But it’s not as great as the White Peony I had from World Tea House. The thing that’s missing is that soft, silky mouthfeel. It’s just a little too watery. Next time I will double the amount of leaves! Or maybe it’s the plastic office kettle? I should try making this at home, but for now, I have to say I’m somewhat unsatisfied.

(back-logging)

Had a cup this morning. Perfectly devine, until the last third of my cup. It was my own fault, though. I couldn’t find my tea balls so I just threw some leaves in the cup. After a half hour steeping, the last of the cup was a bit too bitter. But the first half – heaven!

drank Kiwi Berry by Tea Oh
53 tasting notes

Today, after drinking a cup of Jasmine green tea, I re-steeped the leaves along with a large helping of kiwi berry. I cold-steeped it for a few hours and am happy to report it made a lovely iced tea! The green tea helped give the tea more body – something that was definitely lacking before. The flavor, however, came mostly from the fruit pieces. The tea was a beautiful dark pink/red color. Yum!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I am super excited about this tea! I’m writing this as I go…
It arrived yesterday with my kiwi berry tea, and unfortunately for it, the delicate smell was overpowered by the tisane. I’ve been desperate to get it alone! Looking at the bag, the leaves are quite small, and there are not a whole lot of jasmine flowers in there.
Tea Oh! teas do not come with steeping instructions. They recommend using steep.it
So, I boiled the water, and let it cool for about 7 minutes and then steeped a small teaspoon in a cup of water for just over 1 minute. This seems short? But what do I know! This is my first time steeping Japanese green tea.
There is a slight grassy smell, but not fresh grass. It’s like dry grass, but not hay. Eesh. I can definitely smell the sweet flowery jasmine. I can barely wait for it cool down!
Ah, it tastes almost exactly as it smells, except there is no noticeable grassiness. It is quite floral, but not too much for my tastes. It is smooth like a white tea, but heavier, and there is a little after-twinge on the tongue. Lovely!
