My grandma had this tea in her cupboard and no longer wanted it, so being the tea fiend I am, I snatched it away. The smell is sooooo sweet and smells exactly like processed honey. I made this tea with less than it recommended because I was afraid of the strength and sweetness. Even with less tea than the recommended amount this tea is overpoweringly sweet. It is like you are drinking hot honey. This may be good mixed with herbal teas as a honey flavored sweetener but there is no way I can drink this plain.

Dry smell: This has the typically smell of an english breakfast tea, but when I compare the smell to my black tea from enjoying tea, this one smells considerably lighter. The smell is a little bit sweeter than usual and seems like it will make a nice light tea for the morning.

Wet smell: The wet smell is also slightly sweeter smelling than I am used to. It doesn’t have as much of the slightly bitter smell from my enjoyingtea black tea.

Tea color: A nice dark golden color

Tea flavor: This is an excellent, light but flavorful morning tea. It tastes very dainty in the beginning, but as you swallow you get a smooth mellow melting feeling. The swallow and aftertaste is very smooth but has the typical breakfast black taste that I love. Overall this is a very nice tea to start off a relaxing morning.

drank Green Sencha Tea by Ubi's
58 tasting notes

When you first open the jar, you are hit with a very intense, oceany smell. The color of the tea is very light and clear, but with a deep green tea smell. The flavor reminds me of seaweed and went very well with dark chocolate. This tea is very strong, so I wouldn’t drink a large amount at a time, but it is very good in small quantities like with deserts

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Wow, I commend your bravery at using such a long steep and high temp with a Sencha! I rarely go beyond 1min using 75C/167F, but I also tend to be pretty heavy handed with the dosing I use.

drank Mint by Ubi's

Well this has been a horrid week. I have been overloaded with homework and have 5 big tests on monday. I’m also getting my wisdom teeth pulled friday so there goes study time and I haven’t been able to drink tea since last friday because it will “make me bleed more.” I have resorted to this because It has no tea in it and it is sooooo wonderful. It is strong and bold with a nice sweetness. I’m glad I can still drink this or I might go crazy

Claire

Good luck with your wisdom teeth and tests. It’ll all be over soon!
