62 Tasting Notes
Instant Ginger Honey Crystals – tastes great, nice ginger-y drink!
Jasmine is great, this is my daily bedtime drinker. Simply boil water, plop in a teabag. No sugar, honey, milk or other sweetener is needed.
That was easy.
I wish I had a hot French girlfriend that I could drink this tea with and make love to while we plan our vacation to Paris to visit Jim Morrison at Pere LaChaise Cemetary.
I bought a box (20 count) of this Frenchy tea.
Not my favorite, but will eventually sipdown the entire package.
The cotton muslin teabag and string are unique.
The French / English translation and color coding makes a fun 5 min French lesson.
Didn’t have a black “pick me up” that I wished it had.
Had a sample of this tea that I tried this afternoon. Nice flavor, I simply boiled some water and threw the tea bag in it. The teabag had a string and staple.
My first Lady Grey – it tastes like Earl Gray, I enjoyed it.
This is one of my favorites. I keep this in my freezer – the tea bags strongly smell like cinnamon and and have an oil to them. This tea I drink hot and add a shot of zwack liquor to it for a bedtime toddy. It does stand out in my tea collection due to the cinnamon smell and taste.
I bought this tin at Starbucks – Well BOGO, so a tin was $3.50.
It tastes like an amp’d up Jasmine tea to me.
I’ve been drinking it at night, it’s ok, my first Tazo branded tea I’ve tried.
Would I buy it again, no.
Would I give it to a house guest? Sure, enjoy.
I’ve been drinking this and I’m enjoying it. It can be the first cup in the morning. I put in a splash of milk and pinch of sugar and I’m good to go!
I needed to escape my office for lunch.
I needed a place with comfy chairs with hot corporate blond women with ponytails buying their afternoon coffee.
This place fit the bill.
I sat down and let my mind fill up with emptyness.
My eyes got heavy, and I woke up and went back to the corporate grind.
The tea was “meh”
I added three sugar in the raw packets.
I’ll sip it for the rest of the afternoon.
I wanted this tea to remind me of the time I was in Egypt.
I crossed the checkpoint from Israel with three girls.
And hung out in the desert under a tent by the ocean.
The beach in Egypt was filled with garbage that no one picked up.
The restaurants were empty, and there were like five servers assigned to your table.
matcha, Matcha, MATCHA!
This is the good stuff. Just add water.
I bought it as a present for myself for my 41st birthday.
Not bitter tasting at all compared to other matchas I have tried.
A little dash goes a long way.
I bought it based on the reviews on steepster.
matcha, Matcha, MATCHA!
12/6 I still drink this about 3x a week as my second cup of tea in the morning. I keep my tin at work. The more I drink it the more it tastes like “butter” to me- sort of drinking melted butter when eating a great lobster dinner. It tastes like grass flavored butter!
It’s an amazing product. I drink it to counter-act any junk, sweet or greasy food that I eat.
So if I eat some potato chips, I wash it down with some hot matcha.
As for claims of any weight loss by drinking matcha, well, I walk 4 miles a day, kick box, zumba, do cardio and my weight remains the same at 174lbs consuming this product, but your results may be different.
Drinking the Kirkland Signature right now.
I like it – grassy, vegetal taste with nice bag, and able to steep it for a second cup, nice!
This is my 50th review on Steepster!
It’s peach and ginger flavored, and all I can say is that my sister and mom enjoyed this tea. It smells good, sometimes I open the can and smell and huff the tea like a teenager from the 1970s getting high on glue in a paper bag.
Once the can is empty, planning to Decoupage it with used postage stamps.
I’ll rate this one high because I think it smells and tastes good.
I added this tea to the Steepster database. My local Asian market has this Organic version and the Premium Version. The organic version was priced at one dollar more, and has the USDA Organic logo on the package. I bought this after reading the review of the Premium one here on Steepster.
5/15/2013 – Found out I’m not much of a fan of oolongs, so It’s sitting on my tea shelf for awhile longer.
10/14/2012 – I went back to the Asian grocery store, froggy leg central, got the last box of this Pu-Erh tea. There’s a half-pound of mystery inside. Did I need it? Not really, but this looked pretty mysterious to me.

So I googled this tea, didn’t find it anywhere on the web or on Steepster. I added this to the Steepster database and took this picture.
For $2.99 for a half pound, this should be interesting. To be continued…
12/6/2012 This tea is still a mystery, It’s really mellow and nice. But, where are the other Steepsters to review this tea? Am I the only one with this tea? I feel so alone right now!
5/15/2013 – Love this tea, it’s my afternoon daily tea. There’s plenty of resteeps. When I drink it I feel relaxed and alert. I also enjoy slowing down my speech when I am on the phone. It has a relaxing, chillaxing feel to it.
I bought this tea in Brooklyn NY on Labor Day at a bodega. This is Jasmine Green Tea, tastes good, 25 tea bags. The jasmine flavor is really done well. I don’t think would need to look for more Jasmine teas for my collection since this one tastes great already.
The funny thing is there is really NO INFORMATION about this tea in English, all the websites describing this tea are in Russian.
5/15/2013 – I began to enjoy Jasmine tea and somehow I finished the box!
Standard, basic black tea. I take six teabags with some agave at one time and make iced tea overnight. Comes out pretty good. Can be found easily at local supermarket.
I was Mr. Fancy (Haggar actually) pants today, took the three block stroll up Park Ave with my necktie to check out The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf cafe. Teas any size is $2.45.
I chose the Genmaicha since I had such a good experience with the Takaokaya Genmai-Cha yesterday. I really like this store. There are comfortable chairs, lots of honey, sugar, and condoments for your teas. There is a cold water station that is a nice touch.
The whole leaf tea is in the pyramid bags string and tag
The cups have a pink lid (Breast cancer awareness month I think)
This is a good place for me for a Lunch or Afternoon break when I need to get out of the building and need to tarry somewhere. Even though the teas from this company are not highly rated, there are a few that I’ll investigate.
So I decided to stop being lazy and add this tea to the steepster database.
This is from my local local tea house that I have been to a few times in Tarrytown NY.
This is my first Organic Assam that I have.
The flavor is rich and bold, nice for breakfast.
It reminds me of a full flavored tea, such as an Irish Breakfast.
Nice hot or iced.
This tea is very similar to East Frisian by Harney & Sons
10/7/12 – Bought today at local Asian Supermarket – The one that sell frog legs, for 3.99. I know there are some Pu-erh lovers out there, and I’m gonna start with the bagged one before I start importing kilos like Scarface. I looked it up on Amazon and I think I did good. This local Asian supermarket by me has a whole isle devoted to tea so why not try them all out?
12/6/12 – This has been my daily Pu-erh drinker for now and I’m trying to get through the 100 tea bags. Sometimes I use two tea bags. As always, the taste reminds me of “dirt”.
Do you know those pregnant women who eat “pica” (nonfood items) like soap, detergent, and crayons? Well, as a man in midlife, we go through manopause, and crave Pu-Erh because is tastes like dirt/pica (weird non food item)
Sometimes tea tastes like dirt. It’s ok.
I heard there’s a Crayon/Clay flavored tea coming out for pregnant women!
10/7/12 – Bought today at local Asian Supermarket – The one that sell frog legs, for 2.59. I peeked inside and they are foil wrapped hermetically sealed, gonna bring a few with me on the road this week.
10/8/12 – Wow! I really like this! Tastes like matcha flavored rice crispies! Yum!
12/6/2012 I boosted this tea rating. Every time I drink it I crave sushi! Yum. I drink it in the evening. I love it – and there’s been a sale at the Midtown Manhattan Japanese store – a box for only 1.68. Wow!
Inexpensive, great little loose leaf tea. I’m surprised how much tea you can buy for only one dollar.
Note to self: There is an expiration date at the bottom of the tea box.
12/6/12 – This tea is still really good. Not my daily drinker. It reminds me of licking a copper penny for some reason. I’m fine with this.
I had a cup of this tea at the store on 3rd ave in NYC after Zumba class.
It was very relaxing to me and the taste was nice.
Thanks to Bonnie for this sample.
I loved the coin-shaped individual package.
Bonnie wrote to rinse 20 seconds in boiling H2O, discard water.
Steep 1 min in 4 oz boiling H2O.
Additional steepings should be 10-15 seconds each. This is good sweet or as a latte.
I made some boiling water, and enjoyed this throughout the day.
I did get a nice calmness. I did some more productive uncluttering of paperwork and spent time with my son.
I will have to investigate more Puerh’s in the future.
I took Bonnie’s advice and added some milk and a bit of agave.
Not much more I can say.
Sadly, this is the last sample I had from my goodie bag from Bonnie, so I just wanted to say “Thanks!”
