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.

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 just had some lemon ginger snap cookies so your log makes me want more.

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.

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.

112 tasting notes

I really like the “bird’s nest” shape and it makes me feel extra special to unwrap each individual nest, like each one is it’s own little package made just for me. The liquor is a nice deep brown and the nose on it is nice too. Similar in taste to a black tea but with a deeper earthy sense, an almost root-like taste (in a good way). This seems like a good tea for classic tea drinkers, no bells and whistles…just straight tea flavor.

Jason

Just finished off the rest of the pot after having let it sit for a while. It’s just luke warm but even stronger more solid flavors now. The aroma is more present and hits you sooner. It’s nice that with time it seems to only have gotten better.

As my appreciation for pu-erh has only continued to grow as I branch out and try more, this one is going on the list. I have yet to try an actual pu-erh cake, and this sounds like a good place to start. Especially since I REALLY like the idea of opening little packages whenever I want a batch. Sometimes it’s the little things in life that count.

Jason

I haven’t tried a pu-erh cake either, but it seems pretty cool. Even though (I think) the majority of the time you just break it up anyways.

Katie Alberry

Pu-erh cakes are also great. You just break some pieces off for each pot and enjoy the aromas and tastes that are hidden within. I really enjoy opening these little nests, though.

A great mellow taste with nice floral accents.

One of the best rose teas I have tried. Balanced and fruity, the rose flavor does not overpower the natural taste of tea.

The orange scent and flavor are quite mild, which suits me just fine, as the oolong is smooth and rich on its own merits. Shades of roasted chicory and chestnut. Slight astringency creates a clean finish.

Golden Monkey isn’t quite as robust as my typical morning teas, but it makes up for it with its caramel character and mildly sweet finish. It also extends into well into the afternoon, meaning that I often end up drinking it until it’s time for dinner. I can usually get three steeps out of the leaves, though I use a little more than recommended on the package. Delicious.

4 minutes. Got two steeps out of this, probably could’ve gotten a third.

Ran out of my usual morning tea (Rishi Golden Yunnan) so I’m giving this a try. So far so good! I accidentally over-steeped the first time, but it still held up okay. More detailed tasting notes to come.
