I’m a sucker for anything orange, so of course I got some of this to try. I have no clue who makes this tea but after drinking it, I don’t really care.

Maybe I’m just moody because it’s wet and rainy and traffic was a bear. But this tea? Not so great. It brewed up decently dark but had little flavor other than sweet. And not even a good sweet. More of a sickly, artificial sweet. I couldn’t pick out any apricot or orange flavor. (It was kind of like trying to figure out what flavor the Runts candies are as you eat them. You don’t really know because they don’t actually taste like fruit but they are pretending to be some sort of fruit so you just have to go with it.) But if hard pressed, I would have said this tasted like mango. Not good mango, mind you. Runts mango (they do make a candy in that flavor actually).

And if that wasn’t enough, it left a nasty taste in my mouth, not dissimilar to the aftertaste I get when I have something with Splenda or (worse) Sweet n Low.

Bottom line: not a fan.

The ability to say “no, not this one” is underrated.

I like banana runts.

That is all.

You LIKE banana runts? REALLY?

Wow. My entire world view has shifted. I thought it was a fact of life, kind of like gravity. Gravity keeps us from falling off the earth, no one likes banana Runts.

The next time I get a 5lb bag of Runts from Costco, can I send you the bananas?

takgoti

YES PLEASE.

Auggy

Wow. Alrighty then. I don’t get the bags too often (because I eat them way too much when I have them) but when I get the next one, I’ll pack all my bananas up for you!

And there was much rejoicing!

Can I convince you to send me all your strawberry Runts then? ;)

Auggy

@Jillian: Hahaha! Nooooo! I like that flavor!

I like it. Pu-erh is one of my favorite.

Life is too short to drink tea from a bag.

Made this with breakfast. Just as it was finished steeping I remembered I’d neglected to brush my teeth and the tea’s flavor will compete with Morning Mouth Nastiness. Unfortunately, taking a moment to brush my teeth would only make things worse. Having tea compete with the flavors of baking soda or cinnamon or wintergreen would definitely be worse.

Ah Dragonwell… The chocolate of teas.

The current Dragonwell I have comes from the Essencha tea house in Cincinnati. Dragonwell is my current favorite green Chinese, and this specimen is a fine one. Smelling the leaves, before and after steeping, remind me of chocolate.

Very pleasant Japanese green tea. The leaves are very fresh and when steeped for 4 minutes at 75C, has the traditional herbal, “green” taste of Senchas but also offer notes of peach and mango.

SUPER STRONG, for first infusion. Like my favorite Sencha after. on my 3rd infusion of the day, going for a fourth.
Might of used too much leaves, but… we’ll test that next time.
Very pleasant. The leaves smelt like B.O. though, the actual made tea is great!

Rich and dark, maltier than expected — a nice cup with the savories and sweets during afternoon tea at the Four Seasons. Happy birthday to me.

I plan on drinking this and re-steeping immediately. ooooh add a little 80% Dark Chocolate and second temple Jewish history plus thousands of dollars worth of Audio Video equipment and you have a good idea of what my night is like.
