21 Tasting Notes
So I received my teadrops and my daughter received hers that I sent as a gift. The packaging was great-comes in a little wooden box that holds 8 individual star shaped teas. She loves tea and loves trying all flavors. She is really on the go (teacher at an outdoor science school so spends her whole day outside) She was thrilled with how easy it was to use and just added it to her go cup along with boiling water. She loved the cardamon flavor and wasn’t put off by the sediments at the bottom of the container. I too, thought the packaging was wonderful. I love cardamon so I enjoyed the tea flavor. I added a splash of milk and a drop of stevia. I used a mug so occasionally stirred my tea and did still end up with some sediments but it doesn’t bother me (I drink french press coffee so am use to sediments on the bottom of my cup). This really does make a nice gift for a tea drinking friend or as a sweet gift to yourself. If you are into the whole tea process and meditative steeping this may not be “your cup of tea” but it is a fun, novel approach to tea.
I got my JusTea order from the IndieGogo campaign!! Opened the bag and it came with 3 separate samples. NICE! Opened the 2oz. of tea and the smell was WONDERFUL! Brewed up a cup and was really happy. Smells even better after brewed. A really nice morning cup of tea. Made my son a cup and added a small amount of milk for his cup and he loved it. I was so glad that I bought this tea and helped this small startup company that is helping the farmers in Kenya rise above poverty. On Sept. 16th they are launching another crowdfunding campaign to try to reach their original target. I will be buying more of this as a regular in my cupboard!
Cold brewed this overnight. Didn’t know how this would turn out cold but I really liked it!! The color was beautiful and was very smooth and refreshing-not bitter or astringent. I added 1 drop of stevia to it and it really brought out the sugar carmel flavor. Have to say was excellent iced.
I like Georgia tea company’s teas but wish they sent their teas in sealed bags instead of fold over tops but guess that’s O.k. I just put them into my tea containers. When you open the bag this tea has a really nice peachy smell. I was worried about steeping it for 4 minutes that it might become bitter but it had no bitterness at all. Very smooth tea plain and then the next cup I added a few pieces of rock sugar and that brought out more peach flavor. Just a nice, pleasant, mellow cuppa. I ordered more of this to try this summer iced.
