I have the round sachets of this. It seems to be primarily tea dust when I opened the canister. I cut open one of the sachets and it was basically filled with dust. If I were trying to steep this in an infuser, it would all just go through the infuser holes.

The canister label says, “Refreshing with a pure lemon essence”. How could it have a pure lemon essence if this is made from lemongrass?

The taste isn’t bad. It’s an enjoyable cuppa for the early evening after a busy day filled with too much Chocolate Rocket! As usual with the Chocolate Rocket, I had way too much energy and did way to much. Put grout on part of the basement tile floor (15×15), walked almost 6 miles and finished raking the leaves. Now I’m exhausted and I need a relaxing tea. So this works!
I used three bags for 16 oz of water. Still a little weak.

I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted this afternoon, so I grabbed the first thing I reached for—this. It’s actually very good. It starts out with a honey-like flavor, which I always love in tea, and the aftertaste is dark and deep but still sweet. The best description I can come up with is grilled fruit. It’s a smooth cup and just what I needed as a pick-me-up today.

This was such a tasty tea! I have a soft spot for Earl Greys and this one was done right. It’s got crisp and strong flavor. It was in my Rip van Wafel tea and wafel subscription box for this month of September and this may be my favorite box so far. It has this paired with the cocoa wafel and they taste awesome together.

(The a.m. need for) Good Black Tea Week continues…flipping back through others’ reviews, that is exactly how this one is characterized. Not sharp or bitter, but strong enough to take milk well. No huge spectrum of flavors dancing on your palate, but it is far too early and too cold for dancing.

I’ve been leaning towards black teas this past week, too, as the weather went for a ride in a handbasket. Even cheapo black tea will do, as long as it’s got some punch.

Good for you :) No tea palate should be so sophisticated that it can’t appreciate the aesthetic value of a decent cup of cheap black tea on a raw day.

Relying on this one— a good, strong, no-fuss bagged breakfast tea—to get the eyes open today. A Target discovery; a little more expensive than I prefer for a morning standard, but still a decent cuppa, especially with a dollop of almond milk. (Why didn’t you tell me about almond milk sooner? Wonderful additive.)

This one is growing on me. Light on the steep time = rich and breakfasty.

This also makes a great, stout, get-you-back-on-your-feet sun tea: three bags to a quart; started it outdoors, chilled overnight. Tested after a warmish afternoon of traipsing around Northwest Arkansas shopping venues.

Husband picked this up at Target (they’re developing an interesting little tea repertoire locally) with iced tea in mind. I left the bag far, far longer than the recommended 3 minutes, so this morning’s cup had a sharpish bite. All the same, it was drinkable and somewhat Assam-ish in personality. Will pay better attention next time.

gmathis

Much better when you pay attention. Timed at 3 minutes promptly, it is smoother, but still strong enough to get both eyes open at once.

Ew. Ew. Ew. I didn’t know what one of the main ingredient in here (vasaka), and I should have done some more research. This is… yuck! It’s tart and bitterly so. Pass.

I like the mix of this jasmin and green tea because has not pretentious flavor.

The jasmin is very slight and delicate on the mouth, but you have to be careful on how much time you leave the bag on the cup.

It may happen that the green tea overheats and leaves a dry and strong flavor on mouth. Also you can re-use the tea bag inmediatly after remove it from the cup and gently rub it all over the face to relief the skin complexion.

Flavors: Ash, Flowers, Fruit Tree Flowers, Grass, Wood

Preparation

drank Tulsi Infusion by Teatulia Teas
467 tasting notes

This one is interesting. I haven’t had tulsi before, but it adds a green, herbal flavor to the cup. It’s a little like mint and a little like mate in flavor, and I like it. The base is smooth and compliments the tulsi well. This isn’t a tea I can see myself reaching for all the time, but I’m glad I got to try it.

It’s one of those teas that cares more about being organic than tasting good.

This is one of my favorite herbal teas right now. I love lemongrass on its own, also it is very versatile because I like it in black tea, green tea or white tea. Yesterday I cold brewed it and stuck it in the fridge along with some dried ginger. The end result is very tasty and I’m enjoying it a lot!

Anna

This sounds so completely refreshing.

TeaBrat

Totally! You need to try it :)

gmathis

I haven’t had dried ginger around the house for a long time … suddenly feeling the need to!

TeaBrat

yeah I purchased some at a bulk herb store, it is very nice for mixing into other teas.

Herbal tea of the afternoon and somewhat of an impulse buy. I originally got this just thinking it would be nice mixed in with other things like green tea, white tea and rooibos. I went fishing around for some health information on lemongrass today and found that it’s supposed to be good for pain relief as well as being an antifungal & antibacterial.

So I decided to drink this plain at least once just to try it. It’s straight up lemongrass and that’s a flavor I like but your mileage may vary, obviously. I think it is better with sweetener added; today I had a bit of stevia. My packaging was a paper container with mesh tea sachets and the insructions state you should use each tea sachet twice.

yummy… I want to try this iced some day.

I’m not sure if I can really say that I like this.

This is not a loose leaf, but a tea-dust satchet. My first exposure to lemongrass was Adagio’s Cha Cha herbal tea. I decided to try a tea with lemongrass as the main ingredient. Hmm, not quite as good as it was working with peppermint and chamomile, but not bad.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

decent taste overall but compared to their other teas, this one comes off a bit bland. A good convenience tea though.

I like this tea. It has a mild jasmine flavor. It has one flaw. The green tea is a little bit strong for my taste buds.

Backlog:

I was a little hesitant to try this tea when it was first sent to me, because I had heard from someone else that they weren’t all that impressed with the tea and since this was someone whose opinion I trust and value, I thought I wouldn’t be all that impressed with the tea either. But, I actually quite enjoyed this! It’s quite good.

It smells and tastes sweet: like something between a raisin and a date. That kind of dried fruit sweetness. There is some astringency to this, and it develops as I continue to sip.

Sweet with dried fruit, then it moves on to a leathery/earthy kind of flavor (with the sweetness still present), and notes of malt start to emerge just after the mid-sip point which give the cup a kind of caramel-y taste.

Nice! I like that this is a single estate tea, it’s organic, and it’s a wee bit different because it’s from Bangladesh!

Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/10/25/first-flush-black-tea-teatulia/

I guess it just goes to show you that you should allow yourself to experience a tea and not allow your thoughts on it to become jaded by someone else’s experience!
