drank Sakura Sencha by Wegmans
451 tasting notes

Super lame! I’ve been fairly impressed with Wegmans loose tea so far but this stuff is practically flavorless. Super slight wisp of scent of flowers if I shove my face so far down the mug I risk drowning, and the weakest green tea base I’ve ever experienced.

I won’t even give this away. Glad I just got a couple dollars worth. Hope the trash appreciates it.

Just like the Irish Breakfast Tea from Wegmans, very good, inexpensive tea. About as good as it gets for store brand. Strong enough, good flavor.

From Veronica, from the Xmas Cards swap. Backlog.

This tea is soo good. I have no idea where to get Wegman’s, but that’s probably a good thing with the amount of tea in my cupboard at the moment. It really does taste like almond cookies! When I bake almond cookies, I’m a bit of an almond fiend, I put 2-3x the almond flavoring and mix in some sliced almonds. I’m glad that this tea is strong on that note! The cookie flavoring didn’t disappoint, but what can I say? I’d be in it for the almonds. Yum.

A very nice tasting sencha, and very inexpensive. Nice grassy, vegetal taste without being overwhelming.

Unremarkable but very tasty. I think this will be much better for me iced – the blueberry is present, but not overwhelming, and the green tea is flavorful and not at all bitter.

drank Just Tea Green Tea by Wegmans
157 tasting notes

This tea is a soil green tea with solid flavor. I like to pick this particular one up every so often, especially after the holidays when it helps with my detoxing. Boil it up, steep it, & sip! Many people use green tea for their cleanse, so this tea would be great to add to the rotation.

drank Just Tea Chai Black by Wegmans
157 tasting notes

I’m such a fan of Wegmans teas, they are part of the reason I love store brand tea so much. Chai tea at a great price is what I love. I love this chai in particular because of it’s rich flavor and it’s a great base flavor that I can build upon by adding my own spices. Did I mention the price? It’s fantastic!

drank Herbal Ambrosia by Wegmans
1006 tasting notes

I cold brewed this thinking I would like it best that way, but this is a meh tea in my opinion. It’s like many other fruity herbals out there with a good dash of hibiscus thrown in as well. There is rooibos in the blend, but I could barely taste it.

I’ll finish the small amount I bought, but I won’t repurchase.

Preparation
Iced

Talk about a perfectly crafted tea! To me, orange spice teas taste very fake but this tea has a very nice blend. I’m really enjoying all the Wegmans teas.

drank Organic Chamomile by Wegmans

There are two words that brings me peace and that is “Organic” & “Chamomile” :) Is there anything more perfect. The blend of this tea is just heavenly. I pick a box up when I visit my aunt’s lake house, it seems to be the perfect tea to start the morning.

drank Organic Peppermint by Wegmans

Mint tea is my favorite & this tea in particular is delightful.I love steeping this one for about 5 minutes & letting it cool. Each sip is very flavorful and not bland tasting. My mother also enjoys this tea and often makes a batch of iced tea with it. Very yummy!

I have to admit. I was nervous about trying this particular tea. Of course Wegman’s did not disappoint. Their store brand products, including their teas are up to par with everything else out there in the market. This tea offers a great blend of taste and a soothing taste of Jasmine.

Raspberry teas are very good for women so I like to try all different types of raspberry tea. This tea is very flavorful without being too overwhelming. I like to add a little honey to this one for an even more smooth taste!

drank Lavender Sencha by Wegmans
451 tasting notes

This is absolutely lovely. I can’t believe I have gone so long without Wegmans tea in my life. I love lavender, and that is the primary note here. It plays well with the green sweetness of the sencha, but the sencha is secondary. I sometimes find sencha to taste a bit too much like liquid spinach, so I think this is perfect. I will absolutely be getting more.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I was thinking earlier today that I need a lavender tea in my life. I’ll have to see if my Wegman’s carries this!

I have tried a few, and this is my favorite incarnation so far. Followed by a lavender earl grey, and a lavender white I’ve tried. All good…but this one takes the cake. So far I am extremely impressed with Wegman’s tea. I also love that with the serve yourself, you can create little samples. I paid 66 cents for my teeny baggie than yielded 4 pretty strong cups. I am unsure if I have the willpower not to immediately go back to refill and try more…

drank Almond Sugar Cookie by Wegmans
451 tasting notes

This is SO good. So so so good. It actually does taste like an almond cookie, creamy and a bit sweet somehow. I think a bit of sweetener and milk would make this into a legitimate dessert. I just got a sample’s worth, but I will absolutely be getting more.

Dropped my phone in a sink full of water today. Luckily only for a few seconds, and it is chillin in all of the rice I could find in a plastic bag…here’s hoping it recovers. I can’t afford to replace it.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Backlog from Friday night.

This was a swap from Jude many moons ago. I think if I had tried it when I first got it, I would have enjoyed it more. However, in the intervening period between then and now, a few things happened:

1. It got stored next to Tealux’s “Secret of Love” tea in my cupboard, and
2. I tried Teavivre’s Silver Needle Jasmine tea.

That’s a lethal combination, as this silver needle tea had a really high bar to clear while inadvertently absorbing the flavours of the much stronger tea right next to it.

Unfortunately, it couldn’t hold up. The jasmine flavour was barely there, and instead I got a whole lot of white tea weakness.

I disliked this so much, in fact, that I put the remaining unused leaf in the compost. I knew I wouldn’t drink the rest.

Sorry, Jude.
