drank Body & Soul by Leland Tea Co

Did a cup double-strength, twice the leaves, and iced it down. Now I’m getting the orange peel I missed the first time around. Still not a hunt-it-down-and-club-it-on-the-head-and-bring-it-home tea, but a nice-to-have-tasted-on-a-hot-afternoon one.

A nice bagged alternative for the times when you just don’t want to fuss. The white tea erases a little of the green-veggie aftertaste you get in a lot of teabag greens. I’m thinking it will ice down well.

White tea in Authentic Green Tea?

AmazonV

It’s a white green blend

I love both white and green teas, but I don’t like deceptive names. :(

gmathis

There’s a little banner on the box that says “white tea added for smoothness.”

Cofftea

Well that makes it kinda ok, I still wish names of certain teas would be a more accurate reflection of the tea itself.

drank Kookiedoodle by Leland Tea Co
1767 tasting notes

Another apology to donors because of my disorganization…swaps and samples have gotten a little jumbled in my messy kitchen, but I think this was a treat from Lori.

At any rate, this is the closest approximation to homemade baked goods I’ve ever tasted in a tea. Makes me think of sugar cookies more than snickerdoodles, but now I have a severe craving for both. Splashed in just a little skim milk and yummy-doodle!

205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 30 sec

drank White Peach by Adagio Teas

I put my sample straight on ice.
Not very strong. Just mild and nice.

(With apologies to Ogden Nash and wombatgirl…I just didn’t have a whole limerick in me.)

Minty to the point of mentholatum, so I added a bag of Twinings plain green tea to tone it down a little. It’ll do.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 30 sec

drank Cherry by Adagio Teas
1767 tasting notes

This brew, my dear tea-drinking neighbors,
Reminds me of cherry Life Savers.
I left it too long,
So it came out quite strong,
But I don’t look on it with full disfavor.

(Will give it another whirl iced. Sometimes the strong fruity stuff just does better cold.)

drank Organic Green Needles by Rishi Tea

I definitely felt like I was getting my daily allotment of green vegetables on this one. A little overcooked-tasting, maybe, but if you like strong greens, this one’s for you.

drank Banana Dulce by Art of Tea
1767 tasting notes

I am not a banana fan, so I approached this sample from Doulton a little suspiciously, but
…wow! The chamomile, banana, and coconut work really nicely together—you can’t really taste where one ends and the other begins. Furthermore, chilled, this is a nice smooth summer cooler. I can see myself tossing in some orange or pineapple juice to make this more punch-y.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

drank Corn Tea by Dong Suh
1767 tasting notes

Wombatgirl procured some corn tea
And sent a small sample to me.
You don’t have to be brainy
To perceive it tastes “grainy”
But it’s popcorny pleasant, you see.

(I dunno … I may drain this limerick thing dry!)

Yep, liquid popcorn. Going to ice some down for a yard work tea and see how it goes.

drank Black Currant by Tea Forte
1767 tasting notes

Really nice—a nice round fruity taste, not tart and none of that nasty hibiscus hiding behind the good stuff :o)

But I’m wondering … do you consider black currants to be more grape-ity or more blackberry-ish? I am having to re-think my opinion.

LiberTEAS

For me, black currant is more of a fermented grape flavor… when I taste wine, I taste black currants. But I can also taste the blackberry flavor in there too… sort of a pleasant meld of the two fruits…

Stephanie

I would think more blackberry-ish. Maybe a blackberry crossed with a bit of strawberry?

Bio

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
