73 Tasting Notes
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.
7/11/2013 Update – I bought two more tins. I feel this is one of the best ceremonial Matchas to order on the internet. I make a cup when I first get into the office and makes me have energy and focused. If you have ADD / ADHD – I’d try this as an alternative to adderall. Makes me feel focused, relaxed, and “in” the present.
Today I mixed some Matcha with some loose Runa Guayusa tea and was heaven!
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!
6/8/2013 – This is one of the “must have” teas for my collection. Tastes great, can get it easily from Costco, guests drink it, each teabag is individually sealed. This is tea is a “winner”
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.
7/11/2013 I have about a quarter of a pound left, this tea is really lasting. I love to make this tea at work and mellow out before I leave for the day.
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
