Beautiful little nest individually wrapped makes for an excellent presentation. Smells like a pu-erh should with very earthy tones. About to try it in just a moment!

What did you think of this? I’m just about out of my puerh tuocha and thinking of ordering some more. The stuff I had tastes VERY much like earth. Very strong and complex. How is Teas Etc?

I really like Teas Etc. They have a nice selection and the quality is really great, especially for the price. Not only are the teas nice, the service is great as well! They send your order with three free samples of your choice, and the shipping is prompt. The last time I ordered they even wrote me thanking me for a tea I reviewed on Steepster! I would recommend trying some of their teas if not the Puer Tuo-Cha. I just ordered more of it!

This I’s black tea with vanilla pieces. I’t smells like a nice black tea with a good smelling vanilla. You can clearly see the ingredients. I steeped the tea for a couple or so minutes. The taste I’s a good black tea with a natural good tasting vanilla. This tea I’s pretty good.

This has honeybush,lemongrass,and lemonmytle. This smells mostly like lemon. I steeped this up. This tastes like strong lemon with honeybush. The lemon in here I’s just too strong for me. So this I’s just decent.

drank Gen Mai Cha by Teas Etc
8 tasting notes

Gen Mai Cha is without a doubt one of the best teas I’ve been able to pick up on my home turf. It’s got a very natural flavour – no additives – and the roasted rice blend perfectly with the green tea. Very enjoyable.

I’m not sure which brand I’m drinking since it comes from a rebranded package, but to be honest I’ve not sensed much of a difference between different Gen Mai Chas.

Best enjoyed with a purring cat in your lap. A perfect complement.

drank Groovy Green by Teas Etc
26 tasting notes

This is one of my favorite green tea blends. It’s a great combination of fruits, ginger and chiles. The taste and aroma have a slight sharpness from the spices. Great for multiple steepings.

drank Lemon Ginger Snap by Teas Etc
1630 tasting notes

I’ve been raised to believe that adding anything to green tea is utter blasphemy, but today, out of curiosity, I decided to experiment a little in an attempt to do something new with a familiar tea. I added some honey to my mug and I was pleasently surprised by the results. The honey smoothes out both the tang of the lemongrass and the pungency of the gingerroot and meshes very nicely with the tea as a whole.

This tea tastes more like a herbal tisane than a flavoured green tea, but I’m not really fussed over it. The two cups I had with breakfast went down nicely and the lemon flavour and the ginger flavour are both well-balanced and not too powerful.

You know, I love that this can be drunk as a medicinal tea but it still tastes great – there aren’t many teas or tisanes that can say that!

I drank two cups of this after supper tonight. The first steep, for 3 minutes, was a little weak, so on the second I steeped it for five minutes which tasted much better. It had also taken the edge off of the ginger the second time ‘round so that it was only a nice, pleasently-warm compliment to the tea instead of the spicy, dominating flavour (although still not nearly as strong as a lot of other ginger teas I’ve tried) it was on the first steep.

this one sounds lovely!

My stomach was a little unsettled after supper and drinking this made me feel much better. I added a bit of extra green tea so its taste is more distinct than last time.

Eventually, I need to grow some metaphorical balls and try mixing tea.

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

Ditto. I’m worried about wasting good tea by making bad blends.

You can always start with mixing herbals. I grow my own mint, camomille, lemon balm, and lavender and make medicinal teas out of them. It’s lots of fun and the results usually aren’t that bad tasting.

I only started mixing tea when I didn’t have enough of one tea to make a full cup. And then half the time I mixed it with Adagio’s cream tea (which is a nice add, btw). Now I’m more adventurous. And I’m out of cream.

No bad, though the green tea is rather hard to taste. The ginger isn’t as overpowering as I feared it would be and the lemongrass adds a nice accent to it.
