Very good with fake creamer and fake sugar. Could probably use a bit more steeping time.

The dry tea leaves have a sort of sweet grassy smell.
The first infusion was pretty sweet and refreshing; the second was a little weaker. I tried hotter water for the third infusion, perhaps a bit too hot, as there was a slight bitter taste to the tea.
Regardless, I’m pretty happy with this tea, although not surprisingly, it doesn’t do so well at cutting through the sugar from cookies.

1st Attempt as Iced Tea = FAILED! For some reason, it just came out WAY too weak. I’ll need to figure out how to cool the tea down quickly without adding any additional water or ice though.

Surprisingly I don’t think this works well iced either. One would think this would be made to be iced, but the taste completely changes cold, and not for the better IMHO.

This is an awesome tea, although I tend to ignore the suggested steeping time entirely, and use more ‘leaf’. It ends up being pretty stong and tangy, but that just makes it taste better. This is a great tea for work, because it dosn’t matter if you forget when it’s done steeping (at least for the way I like it) .

This is heavy tea, that stands well on it’s own. It’s very calming and soothing. Make sure to not add too much leaf though. I made that mistake the frist time I made this tea, and it tasted like burnt popcorn.

drank Sakura Sencha by Den's Tea

This is an okay tea. I don’t really think it’s great, but it’s not bad either. Since I don’t have much experience with Sencha, I don’t know if it’s that, or the cherry flavoring that is detracting from the tea. On the plus side, I had this a month ago, and it tastes much better now than it did. So there is something to be said for the fact that palates change. After all, four months ago, I couldn’t stand tea without massive amount of sweetener in it, and now I can’t stand the sweetener.
