Got this tea from my dad! He was at Home Sense and saw it and thought he’d grab it for me.

I feel like I’ve tried a gunpowder tea before, but I’m honestly not too sure at the moment. So here we go!

This one unfortunately doesn’t have any steeping instructions on it from what I’ve seen, so this will be one of trial and error.

A 12oz cup with 1tsp for 2.5mins. I tried it, but I feel this one needs some sweetener. White sugar it is! I don’t care for the smell of this one at all. I’m not too sure what it is about it, but yeah…
Taste-wise though, I really don’t mind it. I think it’s pretty good! I like the sweetener added for sure. I don’t think I’d drink this one without.
How I ended up steeping this one is perfect.

I don’t think I would get this one again, but it’s not too bad.

As it cooled I enjoyed it less. This is one that will have to be enjoyed pipping hot!

I like this tea. It has a mild flavor. It has a slight bitter and sour flavor in it.

Good stuff! One of the few bagged Keemuns I’ve found. Silky smooth and slightly floral-ish in that classic Chinese kind of way. I like it by itself but it’s become a key ingredient in my DIY Russian Caravan blend. 1 bag Touch Organic Black, 1 bag Twinings Lapsang Souchong, and 2 bags Bigelow Oolong. 3 and a half minutes on the blacks and double that on the Oolong and you’re ready to trek Siberia!

I bought this in loose-leaf pyramid bags. It has an appealing jasmine aroma and noticeable jasmine taste. Both the green tea flavor and jasmine flavors are evident, but neither over powers the other. This is a wonderfully light and smooth tea for any time of the day! I’ll be buying more of this.

Still not too familiar with whites but from what i can tell this is a nice combo of flavours. I have it when I want something light and fruity, it really has a wonderful berry aroma and flavour.

Well…I steeped for a good long time…like over 8 minutes…and doesn’t have much taste. Maybe an after thought and after taste…it’s not bad…just VERY VERY mellow…

An okay bagged green tea—a bit vegetal in taste.

While I like most of my tea as blends, this is one of the few I truly enjoy plain. Solid quality, good cup.

Nice light green tea with a hint of jasmine, not too strong which I like. My parents love the Home Goods/Marshalls/KMart reduced tea selection so I always seem to find these heavily reduced teabags in my pantry and they always seem like the saddest toys in the shop. The teabag is so small and the tea packed so tightly that it just kind of sits there like a rusty coin. Maybe I’ll try ripping it open and throwing it into my mesh strainer.

Images of the isle of misfit teabags popped into my head. Ahhh. :(

This is my go-to green tea because it is 100% organic. I love the taste, even when steeped very strong.
I also have used this tea to make cosmetics such as toners and face masks and It worked quite well.
The only downfall to this tea I would say is that it is a bagged tea – I prefer loose leaf teas.

drank Sencha by Touch Organic

A classic sencha for daily use. This one is very similar in taste and quality as the sencha supérieur from Le Palais du Thé, but the reason why I find this one better is because it’s organic.

Found this At Winners 100 bags for 6 bucks and you get what you pay for i usally shy away from bagged teas and this was a reminder as to why, i need to drink this as part of a new diet and this seemed like a practical solution to keep in my purse just in case.

taste is fine nothing great but not bad either, just a plain old green tea.

This tea wasn’t anything special hot so I gave it a shot iced. Unfortunately the same steeping time/temp was too much for it and the result was too strong and ‘green’ tasting without much mango flavour. I’ll give it a do over and dial things down to see if that improves matters.

Iced 2 min, 30 sec

This is a quite a green-tasting green tea that makes me think of slightly under-ripe mangoes rather than the soft, dripping- with-juice, fully-ripe mangoes. The flavour of the tea is full and quite robust for a green tea. Not bad, I guess.

I had a cup of this with lunch today. It complimented my grilled chicken salad nicely!

My mom and I were shopping today and leave it to us to find tea in a place I didn’t expect to. We found cubes of this in a TJ MAX store for $5.99 for 100 bags. What the heck we both bought a cube of it. Neither of us is disappointed, for a teabag this is not bad. Light green tea with a nice mango flavor! On a side note, also found some organic agave nectar for a great price too! It was a GREAT shopping day! :)

I am on a “mango” kick… the local pizza shop has mango vinegarette and I have been ordering grilled chicken salads from them daily and getting the mango dressing! Yummy!

I buy a lot of my tea at T.J.Maxx, its always on the cheap…

Pretty average stuff—a friend’s mother gave me two teabags from this box, and I was pleased just to have tea over Thanksgiving break.
Not bad.

TTB Tea #12:

I do believe this may be my 1st bagged white tea.

1 bag (1.91g)/6oz water. I really toned down the water temp for this. Boiling? I don’t think so.

The liquor is… well… apricot color. A muted, dull orange w/ tints of amber, brown, and tan. It’s very rare that a tea’s liquor so closely resembles the flavor.

The aroma is mainly apricot which makes it have jello-like qualities, but the white tea base comes thru to tone that down.

Interesting. It tastes virtually nothing like hot jello which is good. I’m quite picky about fruit flavored teas, especially those w/ a white base, for that very reason… but this is nice. The white tea base is light, but still solid enough that the apricot only sneaks thru instead of yelling “HI! I’M AN APRICOT TEA!” Exceeded my expectations of both a flavored white and a bagged tea of low weight- the weight concerned me since 2.25g of white tea can be over 1TB worth.
