drank Lapsang Souchong by Wegmans

First lapsang souchong, so nothing to compare it to. Woody, smoky, slightly bitter/astringent. Also used a little of it to punch up a mug of rooibos tea, which was very nice.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Organic Jasmine Green Tea by Wegmans
122 tasting notes

The downside of drinking a tea without reviewing it and then you forget you really enjoyed it … is met on the other side by, after having forgotten, you get that surprised “oh, nice!” moment. Got that with this. Very enjoyable jasmine, fresh like spring, silky body. The jasmine is forward and juicy but not overplayed. I was hoping this would be sweet enough to satisfy a sweet tooth kind of afternoon, but… well, not quite. Baked pear/apple medley to the rescue, though.

drank Sakura Sencha by Wegmans
557 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.

drank Tomo Sencha by Wegmans

I thought I had finished my gyokuro yesterday, but I just realized that I still have 1 oz left from a green tea variety pack I purchased! :) I almost went for the gyokuro again today, but I figured that I better try to make it last. It was a good change going with sencha today…the extra grassiness and bite are enjoyable…and so is the significant difference in price compared to the gyokuro…great everyday tea.

drank Tomo Sencha by Wegmans

I love the variety available in the World of Tea…but, at this point, I’d have to say that sencha is my go-to tea. Inexpensive, good taste…nice mixture of grassiness and sweetness. This one is great for a store brand…I actually think I prefer it to the Yamamotoyama sencha. I’ll have to venture out more and try more senchas…this one is definitely doing the trick for now though.

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 Herbal Ambrosia by Wegmans
1041 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

drank Lavender Sencha by Wegmans
557 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!

Leah Naomi

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
557 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.

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.

I swear this tea is keeping me from killing people. Or at least yelling at them. To be honest, I’d rather have a plate of cookies right now rather than a tea that taste like cookies, but since I don’t want to consume a bunch of unnecessary calories I’ll stick to this yummy tea and continue to not yell at – or kill – the people I’m forced to interact with today.

It’s almost the weekend. It’s almost the weekend. It’s almost the weekend….

Fjellrev

Aww, just hang in there!

MissLena

I feel you..thank goodness it is almost the weekend!

I think I may have lost a few sanity points today, but it looks like I’m going to make it. :)

drank Almond Sugar Cookie by Wegmans

I had this tea earlier this evening, and it was every kind of yummy. As always, I added sugar and milk, and, as always, it tasted like a delicious almond cookie.

This is so good I think I’m going to buy a bunch of it the next time I’m at the store just to have on hand. I’m afraid they’ll take it off the shelf soon since it’s part of the winter tea line. I’m not ready to run out of this tea/dessert-in-a-cup yet!

Backlogging.

Another tea from yesterday. I fully admit that I grabbed this tea out of desperation. Yesterday was a cold, rainy, dreary day, and all I wanted to do was eat butter cookies and play World of Warcraft. I totally blame my husband for this because I quit playing WoW years ago, but he bought me the expansion and boosted my character to 90. If you have no idea what I’m talking about that’s ok. If you do know what I’m talking about you know what a time suck WoW can be. Ugh. If only it weren’t so much fun to play!

I was strong though! Instead, I made myself a cup of this and cleaned my house. The tea has become one of my favorite dessert teas because it really does taste like an almond cookie (with the addition of cream and sugar). It’s super, super tasty and it literally kept my hand out of the cookie jar. I love the big slivers of almond mixed in with the tea leaves. I don’t know how much nutty flavor they give the drink, but they are very pretty.

So, I had a yummy tea, and today I’m sitting in a nice, clean house. Sometimes being responsible stinks, but it does have its moments. :)

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
Exidy

Heh, I completely understand the allures of WoW. I have started and quit a couple of times. I’m not currently playing, but was curious about the latest expansion. Ugh, can’t think about it, or I might get sucked back in.

So, congrats on having a more productive day! Cheers to your strength and delicious tea for helping! I’ll have to pick up this one to try next time I’m at Wegman’s.

Veronica

I quit after WotLK, so it’s been a while since I’ve played. I’ll tell you the expansion is fun, but I’ll leave it at that. :)

Do pick up the tea! It’s gooood!

Lots of sweet almond cookie flavor (milk and sugar added). This is great for when I want something sweet and don’t want to snack. I’m actually going to Wegman’s in a few minutes, and I’m tempted to pick up more of this. We shall see….

drank Almond Sugar Cookie by Wegmans

Much of my day was spent traveling, so I was happy to finally settle at my friend’s house (I’m house sitting at the moment) and relax. I was even happier that I had brought along a few of my teas. This one has such a great almond flavor, and with the addition of sugar and milk tastes very much like an almond cookie. Without additions the tea is still very nice, and the almond and bread notes are easily discernible, but I can’t say that I get a true cookie flavor. So, sugar and milk it is. No regrets.

This is a fun little tea. Lots of almond flavor, and some cookie-like notes as well. I add cream and sugar which takes this from a nice tea to a full blown treat. Happy me! :)

I adore this one – I went back to Wegmans and got a bigger baggie of it I was so into it. I know it is seasonal, so I have to force myself not to hoard like a freak. I have more than enough delicious tea haha.

gmathis

Would love to check out a Wegman’s…they aren’t nearly as far west as they should be ;)

Veronica

Wegman’s is a dangerous place. I’ve never been a fan of grocery shopping, but I love that store… and spend way too much money there.

Veronica

@Leah – I did the same thing! It may be seasonal, but I’d be just as happy drinking this in May as I am sipping it in December. :)

khamilton611

I had my mom pick this up for me last week…she complained that she had to drive from Greece to Pittsford to get it, but I think she secretly enjoyed doing it. ;)

Veronica

@khailton611 – That was sweet of her! I drive past several grocery stores to get to my Wegman’s. I probably wouldn’t shop there as often as I do, but my daughter is allergic to several foods, and Wegman’s carries a lot of foods that she can eat that other stores don’t.

The fact that the tea aisle is awesome is a draw, too. :)

Yum. Lots of almond flavor with vanilla. It really does remind me of cookies. Great afternoon tea.

Which Wegmans are you finding these teas at? Do you bag it, or are they pre-packaged?

Veronica

The Wegman’s in Cherry Hill, NJ. I bag it myself. They have several shelves of loose tea that’s stored in large canisters. I just bag it, weigh it, and print off the sticker that has the price and bar code.
