79 Tasting Notes
I got a small sample of this tea from the NYC meetup on Friday.
The small ziplock bag had the following instructions:
2tsp / 8oz water
Steep 4 min @180 F
I filled my tea ball and heated some hot water.
The green leaves expanded in the tea ball.
Red Safflowers accented the tea.
The tea has a nice aroma and flavor. Afterwards I opened the teaball and inspected the wet tea leaves, Overall, it was an interesting, unusual tea that was different from my normal routine.

Beautiful brown box that is marked in Japanese and English.
Cost is on par with high quality Matchas
Matcha comes in a foil pouch.
I cut open the pouch and put the powder in an empty matcha container.
I made a iced cup of Matcha.
This matcha, like other premium matchas I have tried, has tiny clumps that will need to be whisked up.
Matcha has nice green color.
I bought this tea in NYC location after reading the review at www.teaformeplease.com by Nicole Martin. Nicole has a great blog.
Went to Davids Tea, found this 5g sample for .50 cents. Will update this tasting note soon!
Yes, I discovered it tastes like fish. Even as a anchovy pizza lover, I don’t think I’ll be buying this one again. It also tastes like seaweed.
I’ll stick to the delicious Korean food, Kimchee, Korean Bakeries, Korean cars (Hyundai’s), Air Korea, Sexy Korean women, Korean massage parlors with happy endings, Korean Soap Operas – but this tea I’ll pass up on next time even though it was a bargain.
I know Steepster is not a dating site (but I try anyway by following women only who have cute pictures) but I do have an Asian fetish so if your in your late 20s – 30s, hit me up and we can hit up a convo on the couches in the back of the store. Serious tea drinkers, only.
Bought two ounces – made two teapots. This tastes great cold. I guess you can make this yourself using dried oranges and mangos. This is “fancy bug juice”. I bought this tea because it “smelled good” and can be used as an air freshener.
7/3/13 I visited a new DavidsTea on 23rd and 6th Ave in NYC and had a cup of this. I compare this to Starbucks new Valencia Orange VIA tea.
I like DavidsTea more than the Tang-flavored Starbucks orange flavor.
Hey David’s Tea.. Why is a cup of tea now $4 in NYC while everywhere else is $3?
Eh, not cool, Canadian bros!
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.
7/11/2013 – 50 Teabags take a lot of time to sipdown, but so far I’ve enjoyed this tea. This is a bagged tea that has no staples, string, or tag.
I really found that Taylors of Harrogate has a nice selection of teas that are affordable, in local grocery stores, and tasty.
