Hard to believe this was the only tea I had all afternoon. I was busy going to occupational therapy and doctor’s offices, and also I’ve been trying to motivate myself into looking for a job which isn’t easy. I need to focus more on career stuff and less on social media type stuff (yes, even YOU Steepster!)

Anyway this is just such a good and basic herbal, it’s just ginger and nothing else and it also comes in a teabag which isn’t optimal but makes it good for traveling. This will definitely be a restock for me once my current supply runs out.

Good luck on the job hunting!

This is my favorite ginger tea because it’s just ginger root in a teabag. I love the spicy-sweet flavor of this one and have never been disappointed in it. This is great for travel and I usually stash a couple of bags at work too. It’s great for any sort of upset stomach ailment. Fortunately I think my illness is mostly over and I’m back on the upswing. I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays!

Tea of the afternoon here, not sleeping well or feeling well for some reason and I thought I’d have a cup of this. It’s straight up ginger root and seems lightly sweet. I like it.

Wow. Steepster says I’ve had this one for 2 years now. Seriously?! Well, it held up. No loss in flavour at all. I am shocked.
I think this might have been the last or second last bag. Not bad, but not as stellar as I recall. Ok so maybe it has lost some ooomph. Or I just don’t appreciate roasted oolong the way I once did. Who knows.
Anyhow, it’s Friday and I am in a great mood!! Going out dancing tonight, with a friend who is in from Calgary, and then hiking tomorrow! (the logic on the order of this might not be so sound tomorrow. Hiking and hangover anyone? We shall see. I’m not prone to excessive drinking but the lack of sleep might do me in heh)

Roasted oolongs have a long shelf life. I have a few that claim to be good for 10-15 years.

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 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 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 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!

I’m going thru – what I refer to as my – FUNKY BIN – and came across this! Apparently I haven’t tried it yet! If anyone wants any – no strings attached – let me know – I’ll send you some – I have plenty!

Bottoms up!

Also…I had to look up loquat! Here it is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loquat

And now…on to the notes…

It smells like warm pasta noodles without sauce. The color of the liquid is a pale yellow-grey-green.

I didn’t want to over steep in case it was too herbally for my liking.

Oddly…this isn’t too bad! I was expecting MUCH WORSE. This is surprisingly pleasant. It’s not overly flavorful but that makes me happy! I can taste the slightest hints of papaya, persimmons, and tangerine. There is a bit of herbal flavor but not much! It’s a relaxing flavor…not intense at all.
