drank Chocolate Chai by Wegmans

Backlog from last night.

This was a sample that Jude sent me in a swap a few months ago, and there was just enough in the little packet for a full 24 oz pot of tea. Perfect for sipping down!

Tastewise, this reminds me a lot of David’s Teas Saigon Chai. I didn’t taste much chocolate or even much coconut, but I did sense cinnamon, and for some reason, I also sensed ginger, even though I don’t think that’s on the ingredient list.

Anyways, this was nice, but I doubt it would be a tea I would seek out to restock. Thanks again to Jude for the sample!

Flavor is light and refreshing. A good tea when brewed normally. But AMAZING as iced tea with a tiny bit of sweetener.

drank Jasmine Pearl by Wegmans
25 tasting notes

Lovely and light. If you prefer heavier scented teas this may not be for you. However, I find strong jasmine too perfume-y so this one is perfect for me. Very floral at first which quickly changes to a very honey like sweetness. It tastes much like fresh honeysuckle. It is such a beautiful sweet flavor, I can’t get enough of this tea. It’s especially lovely chilled during these unbearably hot summer days.
Steeped for 3 minutes the first time around with no bitterness whatsoever. Takes multiple steeps very well.

Flavors: Honey, Honeysuckle, Jasmine

Tea of the morning. Today this tea is full of crusty baked bread notes. Yum. There is also the malty notes which I often enjoy in a morning cup. It definitely has a caffeine jolt. It’s enough to get me going which is good even though today I’m enjoying moving a bit more slowly and catching up on the news before starting on work.

I cold brewed this, and I thought I would love it, but I don’t. Apparently my taste are changing/have changed over time. I have tried several teas lately that I know I would have loved a year or so ago, but now they’re just… meh. That’s not a bad thing. Heaven knows there are a lot of teas I’m enjoying right now, and exploring new teas is too much fun to get too stuck on one set of teas!

Anyway, this tea… the jasmine overpowers both the mint and the green tea. I don’t get a Moroccan Mint flavor in any way. This is jasmine tea from start to finish.

Preparation
Iced

Oh god no. Not the Pu-Erh.

Yeah, this stuff is pretty horrid. it reminded me of Japanese fish treats, which wasn’t good for a tea at all. I highly don’t recommend this tea.

Pu-Erh is really Poo-eeerrrrrgggghhh

Yesterday was awesome, I am still basking in the fun glow. Since this week will be Ben’s first week back at work, he wanted to do something fun with me, so we went to the zoo! Since I am photosensitive, this means we were there at its 8 am opening, we wandered around for five hours and I am so sore today, but it was totally worth it. I got some awesome photos, a tiny plushie Red Panda, and even got to pet an Ibis. It was truly an awesome day.

When I was visiting my mom in Pennsylvania last summer (and therefore had access to my favorite grocery store) I became mildly addicted to today’s tea. Wegman’s Organic Blueberry Green Tea is a blend of Green Tea, White Tea, Blueberries, Cornflower Petals, and Flavoring. The aroma of the leaves is delightfully fruity, it smells like sweet blueberries and fresh vegetation. There is a hint of lettuce and very delicate floral as well, for the finish we have a slight peppery kick.

The aroma of the brewed tea is quite sweet and very vegetal, it reminds me of a mild Bi Luo Chun with notes of artichoke and lychee. This blends really well with the blueberry aroma. The liquid has a very blueberry heavy aroma, which makes me happy, there are also notes of lychee and fresh vegetation with a gentle finish of lettuce.

It is no secret that of all the flavorings you can add to things, blueberries are my favorite, but it has to taste like sweet, fresh, wild Maine Blueberries from my childhood memories or I won’t like it. None of those tart blueberries for me, please. I admit, when I was drinking this over the summer I primarily had it sweetened and frequently chilled. I have since moved away from sweetening my teas and only rarely chill them, so lets see if I still love it as much. The taste is delicate and sweet, the blueberry taste is faint, it is more like having blueberries in the tea and not flavoring it. There are notes of artichoke, lettuce, and a tiny bit of acidic citrus at the finish. On a whim I added a bit of sugar and the faint blueberries pop into a rich blueberry flavor. I guess some things never change, my love for strong blueberries certainly doesn’t!

I really like this tea and go through phases where I can’t get enough of it. It’s one of the better blueberry teas I’ve found.

Amanda 'SoggyEnderman' Wilson

Agree! I was originally a big fan of Bigelow’s Blueberry green, but they changed the recipe and I wanted to stop using tea bags, this was the perfect transition tea.

Saturday Sipdown #3!

The first time I tried this, the flavour was a bit of a surprise. I’m still not sure whether I think of this tea as citrusy, but there’s definitely something interesting about it… I think it’s what I imagine pickled plum would taste like – that sort of acrid yet somehow fruity flavour.

I’m sure I’d love it if I could just find something to compare it to.

Thanks for the swap, Jude!

Tea of the morning. I love the flavors in this one. It is biscuity with lots of malt. The kick of caffeine doesn’t hurt either.

I got this in a swap from Jude a few weeks back.

I’ve never had yuzu before, so I don’t know what to make of it in this blend. Yuzu is a citrus, but I really don’t taste or smell any citrus. Instead, I smell something kind of musty and smoky – kind of like fruit, but not quite. Also, it’s slightly salty.

I’m sorry, but I couldn’t even finish a single cup of this. I don’t think it’s for me. I like sencha, and fruit flavoured kinds, but this is hard for me to get a grip on.

Whoa, surprised and bummed that you didn’t like it; sorry bout that!

No worries. There is something I like about the smell – I just wish I could identify it!

drank Masala Chai by Wegmans
644 tasting notes

I’m throwing caution to the wind and having a caffeinated tea at almost ten o’clock at night. I’m sure I’ll hate myself later, but right now this is wonderfully delicious. Slightly sweet with a nice bit of spice. The base tea isn’t super strong, but it isn’t completely hidden by the spices either. I’m taking a break from sugar, so I skipped the honey, but I did add a touch of milk. Given how much I like sugar in my chai I’m happily surprised at how much I’m enjoying it without the extra sweetness.

I have to restrain myself from drinking caffeinated teas at night ALL THE TIME. It sucks to have so much of my stash off limits during the time of day that I have the most time available for tea drinking!

Veronica

mj1851- I feel the same way. sometimes I just have to rebel. I was lucky and slept through the night, but it was just as likely that I’d be tossing and turning at 3am. Either way, there are days when an herbal just isn’t what I want. Give me my tea! :)

I woke up this morning craving something that wasn’t an Assam. This might be a sign of the end times, people. Instead of something rich and malty I wanted something green and fruity. This tea fits the bill nicely.

There is a wonderful blueberry flavor here. I’m also really liking the grassy notes in the green tea. It’s sweet and clean reminding me of grass that has been freshly mowed. The combination is undeniably spring-like and perfect for a warm, slightly humid morning.

I’m glad I made a pot of this one rather than a single cup. It’ll be nice to sip on while catching up on emails.

It’s fun to have something different every once in a while.

Maybe it’s just of the season?

I think it is the season. Of course this afternoon I had Irish Breakfast because I neeeeeded it. Old habits die hard. :)

drank Nilgiri Select Black Tea by Wegmans

It is a very light black tea, mellow in flavor, but at the same time it has an oddly earthy flavor. Its different.

Its also cheap. Why not give it a try? I normally have it with 1 teaspoon of sugar, or just plain.

The first tea I tried that I absolutely hated – even rinsing the leaves and discarding the first infusion.

The flavor is terrible and will make you wince. I got exited about Pu Erh, but this has totally turned me off of it. Trust me, this Wegmans “Bold Leaf” Pu Erh will make you go
Puuuu ERRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHH

This Masala Chai is not too strong or spicy – it does have plenty of cardamom in it. Great with a little bit of milk.

I am yet to be exposed to proper Indian Masala Chai though…so take that as it is. My only other experience would be bagged “Masala Chai”

Mmmmm, nice and smokey! This has such a rich smokey scent! It tastes really smokey and deep too, but doesn’t have any bitterness at all, really quite smooth! I am not familiar with the nuances of lapsang, but this one is really enjoyable!

I’ve been really impressed with the Wegmans teas in general (we just got some stores near me)!

Dustin

I hadn’t tried or heard of them before this traveling tea box got to me. So far I like and will try more from them. I’ll have to keep an eye out for retail locations!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I’m sitting at my desk drinking a cup of this malty deliciousness when my son comes in and tells me happy Mother’s Day and that he is so glad he’s my son. It’s going to be a good day. :)

drank Jasmine Pearl by Wegmans
402 tasting notes

Super strong jasmine scent coming from this bag! Once steeped I get a fairly strong, clean, crisp and light jasmine taste. It isn’t a mind blowing level of jasmine, but it is really good! I’m not getting any of that soapy taste that some jasmine teas have. I like this one!
