drank Sweet Pu-erh by Wegmans
122 tasting notes

A light puerh that has a fragrance and taste of roasted hazelnuts. A little smokey. Amber liquor. Very drinkable but without the depth of typical puerh. Since Wegmans gets some of its teas from ItoEn it’s possible that this is actually the tea listed here; although mine does not say green, it is definitely not your usual dark puerh:

Think woody campfire smoke, inhaled, then consumed as a liquid. Doesn’t make you cough, but otherwise this is pretty much my experience of this tea. Can be pleasant or not depending on your taste and your emotional associations with campfires. I could easily close my eyes and be transported back to some great times with this imagination-inducing tea. Drinking it straight would be an acquired taste, but I’ll blend this with other teas to add a bit of smokey depth.

This is my first silver needle, and it’s a standout among teas… maybe simply because it’s silver needle or maybe just this particular silver needle is this good, don’t know yet… but now that I’m in the door, I’m going to solve this mini-mystery. It is light, refreshing and sweet in the most natural, unassuming way. It tastes like a more sophisticated version of Juicy Fruit gum. Fragrance is a heavenly soft floral.

Refreshing, nicely composed marriage of puerh, orange and ginger. The dry tea smells more of ginger but it is really more of a complement to the others once brewed… a mild little kick at the end. The puerh is lighter-bodied than the typical dark, earthy varieties I’ve explored, and the orange further contributes to this lighter palate. No trace of the sea-flavors that some dislike.

Is this the RISHI Brand from Wegmans

Jude

No company was listed on the bulk tea tin or the printed label, but it could be Rishi since that’s one of their (3?) suppliers. I emailed Wegman’s requesting a listing of who produces which of their teas. If I find out it’s Rishi I’ll relocate this post accordinly.

I think it would be good to have under Wegman’s too because I know other people search for Wegman’s Stuff…that’s what I do anyways…if I know it by another name I list it in my review notes! I think you are fine with either/or/both

I normally harbor disdain for rooibos teas (I think they taste too medicinal) but this is the second rooibos that I’ve actually enjoyed! We visit Wegman’s about every 3-4 months, and on our recent visit, the Blood Orange Tisane won for best scent. I’m huffing my bag as we speak… it’s a delightful bouquet of freshly peeled oranges. Very lush and tropical. The tea has lemongrass and rosehips, which gives it a bit of tartness without making you think you’re drinking watered-down orange juice. A winner!

Had to try this. The leaves were very smoky, similar to a barbegue grill. The flavor of the brew less so. And I didn’t enjoy it. And I think it gave me a headache.

Followed it up with some dragon well green tea, and it all went away.

Sad that you got a headache from the tea! I wonder if it’s smokier than the LS that I drink…

Tabby

I can’t get into lapsang souchong either. :/

JacquelineM

I’ve been taking smoky baby steps but am still too much of an infant for lapsang :)

I love LS, but you can’t really think “tea” in your head when you drink it…I crave it on those nights I wish I was by the camp-fire under the stars.

Pretty much all silver needle teas that I’ve drank have a hay-like scent and flavour profile and this tea isn’t an exception. However, I’m not getting the sweet-hay flavour as strongly as I’ve tasted it in other teas – like LeafSpa’s Silver Needle. This tea is calmer and mellower and content to tickle the taste buds with the flavour rather than hit them with a sledge hammer. The tea has a really smooth body and the flavour tappers off into something that’s almost buttery in nature.

Subtle chocolate taste even though there are thick chunks of chocolate in this. It’s a wonderful breakfast drink on a cold drizzly morning — chocolate makes everything feel better :)

This is a delicious tea. It’s got great acidity without being over-the-top with it. Very refreshing in that regard. The orange notes are very present, but not overwhelming like so many fruit teas that smell like scented candles. The tea mellows with multiple steepings.

Very, very nice. Would drink every day and twice on Sunday.

drank Lavender Sencha by Wegmans
4 tasting notes

The smell of this tea is absolutely divine. The taste is great as well—a very solid Sencha. Combined with the calming taste and (especially!) smell of Lavender, this is a great night-time blend. It has a very tranquil taste, but it maintains the slight bitter kick that’s common with Senchas.

If you’re a fan of Lapsang Souchong, this is a fine choice. Unfortunately, I’m not. This has a strong (very strong, I mean super-strong) smoky aroma, and as is indicative of all Lapsangs, it tastes much like I imagine licking a charcoal grill would taste like. If that’s your thing, by all means, go for it.

Side note: Combined with some more fruity flavors, however, this could be pretty interesting.

Guess I’m one of those people who likes licking charcoal grills! =P

drank Chocolate Chai by Wegmans
4 tasting notes

This tea isn’t nearly as flavorful as you would expect. It’s without a doubt the best smelling tea in the universe, however. It smells exactly like warm cinnamon buns. Unfortunately, the tea itself tastes a little boring and bland. I’ve found that if you make sure to use hot water and let it steep for almost 6 minutes, and then sweeten it with honey, it really enhances the tea and brings it above and beyond what it would be normally.

In short: Use 205F water, steep for almost 6 minutes, and sweeten with honey. Otherwise, a little bland, but smells fantastic.

Second steep. No Lemon this time, and still very nice. Bergemot could be stronger.

Got a bit of this from wegmans to try (from the bulk loose tins). Was just too grassy for me.

I agree with the above. It must be an acquired taste. Not for me.

2nd steep
not much change in strength of aroma or color.
still very light flavor. Will probably have to get more fine tune sense for flavor of this one (or it just doesn’t have much of one). Still not bad though.

Color: Honey
Smell: Slightly floral, bit sweet
amount: 2.5 tsp
leaves are large and don’t quite fit into a tsp very well.
Can’t seem to get much flavor in this tasting. Maybe steep longer or more leaf next time.

2nd steep. Aroma is not as strong, or maybe I’m just used to it now. It reminds me of how smoking meats outside and the smoke permeates into your clothes and the smoke smell just lingers around you. 2nd steep was still smooth

Deep pink in color.
Definite sweet fruit aroma.
Taste starts tart but finishes earthy and slightly bitter.
Not very strong of a raspberry flavor

update: earthy finish reminds me of hay/straw

Was ok. Not impressed, but definately not bad. Better than a lot of teabags for much cheaper though.
