I’m a sucker for ginger. It helps me when I’m sick, but that’s personal experience. Great with honey.

So, this is a tea I picked up at a fairly local Asian supermarket. I’d finished all the pu-erh, and I wanted to be sure we had some in the house. This met all the technical specifications and it came home with my wife and me. It’s fine, not like fine as in quality, but fine as in adequate. This is an adequate tea.

Expect a small tea bag wrapped in paper with some dusty flakes that smell a bit musty. After brewing this smells more like leather, although it tastes mild and sweetens comfortably.

When you open the tea you get hit with a strong ginger scent but the ginger taste is subtle. The positives are freshness and affordable.

I was at a friend’s house for game night last night and we were in the mood for tea. As the high tea snob of the party, I offered to make it, and soon found myself hunting through a box of tea bags. Some good stuff, mostly leftovers of teas bought long ago and quickly found to be not all that good.

I did find this gem, however, as well as a few other good ones in the mix.

Quick heads up: I have been trying a lot of different very high quality loose leaf teas, and it had been a while since I had anything other than the standard blends in a tea bag. Jasmine Green, Earl Grey, English and Irish Breakfast, etc.

But I am glad to say I was delightfully surprised by the quality and flavor of this little bag. Of course, it did not compare to the control, flexibility, and quality of a loose leaf, but it was actually very good.

Even the 2nd steeping was still full of flavor that had not yet been mashed and mixed to the point of bleh like many cheaper tea bags will do.

Good stuff!

drank Relaxing by Triple Leaf Tea

This is a tea I got from my Mother-in-Law. I wish she would just look at my Steepster wishlist instead of buying me whatever she comes across. I haven’t had good luck with her finds. This is an herbal blend that my cat was immediately interested in, probably because of the catnip. He started by sniffing the box and then began biting it. He even nipped my finger and batted at me when I tried to take it away from him! Little jerk. He’s really annoying me today. Every time I get up he steals my spot on the couch. Then he cries at me when I move him. *Sigh.

I really need a cup of something relaxing. I’ve not had a very good day. Tea usually makes it better but the last couple teas I’ve had have been disappointing. I’m not even sure I should really be drinking this one because some of these ingredients aren’t recommended during pregnancy. So I’m just going to have a couple sips so I can write a note about it and then I’m going to re-home the rest of the box.

This tastes to me like an herbal teabag usually does. The peppermint comes across as the strongest flavor then maybe the chamomile. I can’t say that I can detect each ingredient individually but I think they all contribute to the taste. Overall, it’s an unremarkable and inoffensive blend. I think others could enjoy this. It’s not bad at all, just not my cup of tea. Anyone interested in the rest?

terrible isn’t it when someone choices a tea for a tea lover.

I shouldn’t complain. It’s a gift! But I feel like it’s wasted money because I never enjoy them. She always buys teabags from places I’ve never heard of. Oh well. First world problems.

Well, in case anyone was wondering, their recommended steep time of 3-5 minutes with boiling water is completely bogus. Unless of course you like to drink things that taste terrible.

I’ve never tried white tea before, so I was looking for a cheap way to see what it was like. I found this at a local organic store; unfortunately, they did not have any loose-leaf white, but this was only a couple of bucks, so I figured what the heck.

I like it ok, it definitely has a mild, sweet taste to it. I’m sure it gets better than this, but I don’t really have anything to compare it with at this point.

Definitely worth the cheap price, and now I want to try out what the good stuff is like…

A review of Green Tea (Beneficial Everyday Tea) by Triple Leaf Tea

Company: Triple Leaf Inc
Tea Name: Green Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: green
Region: China
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: golden brown
Leaf Characteristic:

  1. Steeping:

1st Steeping:
Water Temp: 200
Time: 3 minutes

I steep this tea for less at first since it seems like it might be very strong/bitter. I place one tea bag into my cup and pour in the hot water and leave it to steep for a few minutes. Tea’s aroma is that of green tea and smells freshly of green leaves as well.
-——————————

2nd Steeping:
Water Temp: 200
Time: 5 minutes
This is a longer steep because I want more of the tea’s strength in my cup. Not that there was anything wrong with first cup of tea. This second cup of tea is darker in coloring and smell strongly with more astringency, the tea taste is strong. It is not as freshly clean as first cup. I think this is because the first cup of tea was lighter and therefore fresher.

I mean to say: the bitterer is the tea, the stronger is the tea’s strength and not as enjoyable if nothing is added to it. I prefer tea’s plain.
-————————————

Overall tasting notes: In all, this tea has a pleasing mild and aromatic flavor and is less bitter if steep for shorter time.

Classification: Year, and region of production; Product of China

Cup’s characteristic: This tea is prepared from superior green tea leaves and one can taste and enjoy this aspect with every cup of tea, in tea bag form.

Liquor color: golden brown

Taste: mildly astringent and cleanly when steep for shorter duration.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec

A review of Slimming Special Herbal Tea by Triple Leaf

Date: 11/05/2012
Company: Triple Leaf Brand
Tea Name: Slimming Special Herbal Tea
Tea Type/ Herbal
Region:
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color:
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

Note: I like to have this tea (all my herbal teas strongly) so infusion is longest of steeping for 5 minutes or more and this makes the tea very dark in color and smelling strongly of herbals like the Senna leaf, dandelion, licorice root and persimmon leaf making this tea a sweeter brew.

I brew this tea so strongly and that it is darken-cloudy mush in my mug and when tasted, tea is very hot and good; I like how the persimmon and licorice play nicely together; this tea is wonderful because it has no bitterness at all.

As this was my ending cup of tea for the day, it was very welcoming cup of tea.

A review of Tisane Spécial Minceur Tea by Triple Leaf

Date: 10/23/2012
Company: Triple Leaf
Tea Name: Slimming Special Herbal Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: Herbal
Region:
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/tea bag
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: dark auburn
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

Note: I infuse tea bag in a cup of hot water for several minutes since I want a stronger brew. I notice that the tea’s color darkens from reddish brown to like a muddy coloring. And the tea smells strongly of herbs like senna and dandelion and always I feel, I taste licorice or that slippery elm bark or it is how I can describe this tea. It is naturally sweet and filling. I think since I brew / steep this tea longer it makes for a heavier cup of tea.

I like that this tea has no caffeine because I am drinking it end of day. Overall this tea offers a rich and satisfying taste.

A review of Herbal Laxative by Triple Leaf Tea

Date: 11/03/2012
Company: Triple Leaf Tea
Tea Name: Herbal Laxative Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: herbal
Region:
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: Cup/ tea bag
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: darkish red/amber at times like muddy water since brewed for more than five minutes.
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes +

Note: I steep this tea only once since it is my nightly cup of tea. I take one tea bag and place this in my cup and pour the hot water over it and leaving it to steep for close to ten minutes since it states: “for stronger flavor and effect, steep longer.”

Teas’ aroma is very sweet of the licorice root, dandelion, mulberry and ginger. This all lingers in the air. When tasted it is more of the licorice root and ginger that I taste.

In all I drink this tea for the benefit that is offered to aid me in ridding of excess waste. To be detoxified and clean that is helpful to the body’s normal process. I drink this tea because at times it is a good thing to do.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more

A review of Herbal Laxative Tea by Triple Leaf

Date: 10/20/ 2012
Company: Triple Leaf
Tea Name: Herbal Laxative Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: Herbal
Region: China
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: darkish green
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings: With this king of tea, I generally do not have it with multiple steeps. I brew it once very hot and steep for between 5-10 minutes and drink it.

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 5-10 minutes

Note: I pour one cup of boiling water over a tea bag and leave it to steep for five minutes or longer. I have this tea just around bed time and I drink it with one sitting. Tea’s color is darkish green leafy like and smells very strongly of herbals. I recognize the taste of Senna leaf or some call it slippery elm bark, senna and the Chinese licorice, which makes tea sweet and not bitter. In the background is the orange flavoring as well.

This is a good detoxifying tea when one feels bloated or needing that extra push in ridding of excess.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 30 sec

Glad sometone had the nerve to tackle a subject that we don’t admit to having, but the stores are full of this kind of tea for a reason!
