Triple Leaf Tea – “Green Tea.” Bag (somewhat tenuous connection between string and bag). Appearance: small leaf pieces (fannings, if you prefer). Liquor: slightly darker brown than many green teas. Smell: vegetal. Taste: traditional Chinese-style green. This is a mild green tea that is nice, straightforward, and easy to drink. It does have a slight medicinal taste that comes on stronger as an aftertaste. The tea is not particularly astringent compared with other greens. I would recommend this for people starting green teas, and for people who want a good deal (I got it on a very nice sale at Whole Foods). Plus, the bags are convenient for leaving in a desk drawer for when you want some at work and don’t have your infuser handy. 5/10.
Ok so I tried this again today… I needed something quick and easy so I went for it. (normally I don’t double down like that!)
Anyhow, I learned from yesterday’s experience and made the first steep super short, maybe a minute… and dumped it! and was rewarded with a rich, smooth and toasty oolong that took me to the moon and back!! It almost reminds me of barley tea it is so intense. Coffee like even. Mmmm.
Raising the rating a few notches. (I’m shaking my head at myself here, falling in love with a bagged, and chopped! tea!)
Well this is the closest I’ve come, a bagged tea! to my precious roasty toasty oolong! not bad, for a bagged tea… and cheap to!
The quality of leaf is not identifiable, being so finely chopped. I’m going by taste alone here :)
The first steep, I wasn’t all that impressed. It was rough, and had characteristics of an oolong… but I like refined teas and this was definitely not that!
The second steep however, was so incredibly smooth and impressive to me that I swung for a third. It was lighter, but still very yummy!
This is my first bag of the stuff, but I suspect it may become a favourite :D
(this gets a high rating because I :heart: this flavour so very much… but I can tell that it would be a smidge better if loose. Does this company sell loose tea I wonder? Hmmm!
More deets later, I need to try this again with a much shorter first steep!
oh wow. I knew the steepster ratings for this one wouldn’t let me down! I just splurged on a bunch of teas over on LuckyVitamin. This was one of them, as it was $2.02 for a box of 20, it had an 80 rating at the time, and I wanted a jasmine tea. This is fantastic! It smells and tastes just like the Organic Jasmine Pearls sample I tried from Butikiteas.com, which hints at the quality because Butiki is excellent. The tea bag is PACKED. I oversteeped the second cup a bit, and it lost a bit of its flavor so definitely don’t oversteep this one. Don’t let the price fool you, this is delicious!
Hm, now that I’ve tried something a little closer to the real thing (the Dilmah Ceylon Silver Tips), this is definitely sub sub par. Reminds me of the super cheap Fujian bagged oolong that I’ve got, after it sits in my cupboard for a year or two, exposed to the air.
Could be worse, I guess.
WOW! This herbal tea is surprisingly good. Most Detox teas taste awful – at least the ones I have tried have – and this one is quite pleasant. It’s a tad herbal and a tad sweet in taste. There is little or no smell and average in color and just a tad cloudy. As far as detox teas go…I give this one a thumbs up.
