drank Walnut Crunch by TehKu
207 tasting notes

Nut-tastic green tea! Blessed to end the holiday with a trip to TehKu in Dublin. If you’re ever near Columbus, OH, you MUST stop at TehKu. It will not disappoint.

The tea smells like a sugar cookie. The strongest flavor was the coconut, but both the walnut and pineapple were present. I’d like to try this again when I have more time to savor. I almost bought some, but decided the teas I ordered on Della Terra for Black Friday were enough for right now. I need to have some self control!

I hear ya, Sil. It was super difficult, but I do know I can go back and get some ;) And I failed to mention that I picked up more Butterfly Kisses!

After enjoying the sample of Moon Festival, I ordered this delicious wintery tea. It reminded me of Della Terra’s Candy Cane tea from last winter and I was transported to a winter wonderland. They did not have this one available to take home, but had another that was so similar I can’t taste the difference :) So of course I bought it!

YUMMO!! This tea is heavenly. Sipping it this morning and feel the need to turn the Christmas music on, but instead I’ll listen to Joshua Radin. Who, by the way, was one of the 2 people my friend Kim and I saw in concert last night at Newport Music Hall. His voice and this music blend perfectly :)

drank Moon Festival by TehKu

After lunch, we headed to Dublin. Stopped at a great used/overstock bookstore on the way. In Dublin, we had to check out the TehKu tea shop there. We enjoyed this experience much more than Zen-Cha. They had this delicious tea as a sample for the day. After tasting it, I knew I needed to take some home. The man working told me that he had just sold the last bag. I was devastated. But this story must have a happy ending…

And it did. I found a few bags hiding by the register :) My day was made. This tea reminds me of the little cakes made for the Moon Festival. Yum! Can’t wait for my lunch break to make a cup!

The dry Sencha, toasted rice and corn are powdered with Matcha and have a vegetal/grainy aroma. The lime-green infusion has the toasty aroma and flavor of grains, a bit sweeter in taste, less vegetal than some greens. More brothy in subsequent infusions; the Matcha diminishes, of course, but the remaining Sencha remains smooth and tasty. A keeper!

drank TehKu Golden Monkey by TehKu
255 tasting notes

This is a delightfully rich and satisfying tea. It’s smoky, a bit malty, full-bodied, and complete within itself. Near the end of my cup I added a bit of honey and milk, which did not detract from the tea, but really didn’t add anything. I would drink this again, hot and golden. Golden Monkey seems to be the tea-drinker’s equivalent to a single-malt scotch.

TehKu is a local company with a wonderful tea-house, and I know that they do mail-order for those who live outside the area. No affiliation.
