This is one of my favorite green teas. The cherry flavor is subtle and it doesn’t remind me of cherry-flavored lozenges at all. It isn’t overly-grassy like some green teas can be.

Preparation

I love the brothiness and nuttiness that you get from the brown rice. It pairs well with the grassiness of the green tea.

This tea smells very tropical when dry but it is more subtle once brewed. I don’t find it overpowering like some of the other fruit teas from Zhi. Tastes fantastic both hot and iced!

This is a very nutty tea with a subtle raspberry flavor. I think the flavors work very well together.

This is hands-down the best chamomile tea I have ever tasted. It’s very flavorful and produces a beautiful golden-yellow cup. Very smooth with some slight honey flavor. I love drinking this before bedtime to help me sleep.

This tea is incredibly smooth with no astringency. I love the chocolate flavors and to me it’s also somewhat earthy – it’s delicious and it’s the perfect morning cup.

This tea is pretty to look at with the miniature roses, but that’s about it. It’s sickeningly floral. Couldn’t stand it and it gave me a headache.

Minty but not overpowering by any means. I love this tea and it really doesn’t need any additional sugar due to the Stevia leaf that is already in this blend. This tea is also caffeine-free which allows me to enjoy it in the evening.

I can definitely taste the mango in this tea. Adding a little bit of sugar or honey brings out the mango flavor, imo. This tea is wonderful both hot and over ice.

I feel like a princess when I drink it and I’m actually enjoying a cup right now! The sharpness of the bergamot is mellowed out by the creaminess of the vanilla. You can definitely taste the lavender but it isn’t overpowering. The tea base is assam so there is a little bit of astringency. You can enjoy this tea as is or with a touch of sugar and a splash of milk/cream. Either way, this tea is lovely and also beautiful to look at due to the cornflowers.

Flavors: Bergamot, Flowers, Lavender, Vanilla

Not sure if this is black tea or black little pieces of heaven. This tea was absolutely incredible.

I wish I could piece together how I felt about it, but basically it was very very good. The air in the room once you ge the leaves wet is amazing. The tea taste is very sweet but also a bit refreshingly bitter. I wish I knew the full name of this tea or if it will be the same next year. Its superb.

Ps- Best results were with boiling water

These Jasmine Pearls are excellent. The best pearls I’ve had. The jasmine is accentuated so well, with just the right amount of sweetness to balance it. This tea reminds me of walking down a calm lone road at night that’s lined with country wildflowers. It truly is and excellent tea and simultaneously stimulating and calming. I feel alive when drinking it.

This really is toasty. And I didn’t even know what toasty tasted like. It’s also roasty, like you are sitting by a fire no matter where you are.

drank Ginger and Lime Rooibos by Zhi Tea
1694 tasting notes

Dry this smells intensely of lime. Hot it is lime, lemon, and ginger. Once it cools it becomes more ginger, lemon/lime. The ginger packs some heat. I still don’t know what green rooibos tastes like. It seems to fill in all the flavor voids in the cup. I think I most detect it as a sweet grassy aftertaste. There is licorice root in this. It only adds a tiny amount of sweetness. Halfway through the cup I added a little sweetener to see how it would react. No problem, though it added nothing but sweetness. It is not something I would drink much of, but I can see this being fun for fans of lime and ginger.

A little bit of creaminess, a dash or earthiness. Reminds me of eating breakfast in the forest. A couple of squirrels, maybe three, one deer, and a nice cool breeze.

A nice middle ground taste of Gunpowder green and Karigane. A tad bitter and bold with a little grassy taste.

One time, when I was a kid and strolling through six flags over Texas, a thunderstorm hit. Right out of nowhere, thunder and lighting, and rain and wind that blew my hat off. All of the guests were directing into the nearest shops for safety. My mom and I were pushed into the candy shop along with about thirty other people. A crack of lighting turned the power off, and I remember talks of a tornado. The wind, rain, the fear and the sweet smell of candy. That’s what this tea reminds me off. Minus the fear.
