Got this one from Veronica from the Christmas card exchange in December! Reminds me a lot of Lupicia’s Cookie Lots of cinnamon and cookie flavors. I think I like Lupicia’s version the best because it’s a lot richer and just better overall in my opinion.
This one is still good though! Happy to have tried it! :D
Thank you for the sample, Veronica!
Flavors: Almond, Cinnamon, Cookie, Pastries, Spices
This is delicious! I absolutely love this tea! The leaves are slightly lower grade but still a typical japanese green. The small spines are emerald green and with small gold specks. The brew is a pale jade and refracts light well. The brew tastes of sweet honey butter! There are undertones of vegetable, nectar, oils and a very slight citrus tang. The wet leaves smell of algae, spinach, fresh grass and spring! This is a quality japanese green. The only problem with this tea is its price. The company I bought it from has it priced extremely high so I can only afford it within small doses. I also would rather spend my money elsewhere so this is the last of this tea that I will be buying.
Flavors: Molasses, Peat Moss, Stems, Summer, Sweet, Vegetal
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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….
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!
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. :)
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.
