Also don’t know why the box says caffeine free, since mate has about 50% the caffeine of coffee: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yerba_mate

It tastes more like carob than chocolate to me. The bag yields a fairly weak cup; a little tastier once I added almond milk, but still wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase this. Would be better if the bags were filled with more than a scant 1 1/2 teaspoons. Next time I’ll use 2 bags.

I’m closing out the day with a mug of this white peony sweetened with a hint of agave nectar. Goodnight, folks.

Becuase I’m vegan, my mom struggles to figure out what to send me for holidays. She sends my brother candy and cookies, and for me, she settled on tea. I couldn’t be happier! I got this one for Easter, and I am pleasantly surprised that a tea from World Market is this good. Because of it’s low caffeine content, it makes a perfect cup of tea to enjoy with a good book as I am getting ready for bed.

I was wandering the aisles of World Market yesterday, killing time before my evening concert, and discovered that they have pouches of loose tea. Is this new, or have I just failed to notice before?

Anyway, this is a fairly decent white tea – liquor is golden in color. It is light, sweet, and delicate in flavor, and I’m on steep 4 of the tea, and it is still rewarding me with decent tea.

So, why not a higher rating? Well, it just doesn’t really ring my chimes. I can’t say why, it just doesn’t make me as happy as a good oolong, or a genmai cha. This isn’t going to stop me from drinking it or buying more. It’s a good cupboard staple.

having never tasted pu erh tea cakes or aged pu erh, I’m just guessing my way through my first bag of this. wash it first before your brew it. I also, strangely, think it tastes good with milk (2%), until its a terra cotta color. I brew the life out of it every time, and it holds up for a different taste every time. a good stand-by, but i’m looking for further adventure in pu erh.

let me add that today I got a new yixing tea pot and dedicated it to this pu erh, and wow, it really makes a difference. I’m on brew 8, and it opens up to real sweetness. hurray.
