I brewed this a little longer this time and it wasn’t too bitter, but it was a bit too floral. The first sip is good, but the floral-ness builds so that it is almost perfume-like. This persists when it is iced as well.

I really like this tea. It has a unique flavor and every sip tastes a little different than the last. It holds up well to long brewing.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

This tea is very beautiful to brew. The gold sugar dissolves and makes the tea glittery. It is a bit sweet on it’s own, but I wouldn’t want to add milk to it to ruin the glittery effect.

drank Palekaiko by Lupicia

This tea is very good. It tastes more like a green or oolong tea because it is not heavily spiced or bitter. Often times with fruit teas they smell good but taste bland. You can definitely taste the passion fruit in this tea and it is naturally sweet on its own without the addition of sweetener. It would taste great as an iced tea as well.

drank Chase-Mallow by Handmade Tea

This tea is bland. First it tastes like plain tea, then the sweetness and astringency from the hibiscus comes through and it finishes with a taste of hay. It does have a calming affect due to the St.Johns + Hibiscus

This tea smells very citrus-y, but it is well balanced when brewed. The funky fermentation of the pu-erh goes well with the citrus. I have to learn to stop drinking pu-erh tea on an empty stomach since it makes me extremely hungry! This would be a great tea to drink at the end of the meal since it is refreshing. I might also try it as an iced tea since it is a pretty red color when brewed and the citrus flavor would go well over ice.

drank Caramel Macchiato by Lupicia

I reach for this tea when I’ve got a hankering for coffee but there is none to be found. This tea has a deep, bitter note with lighter hints of caramel. Be careful not to oversteep because it gets extremely bitter very easily.

drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA

This is a good tea that I often share with people that are just starting tea drinking. The smell reminds me of breakfast without being too buttery and the taste is smooth, naturally sweet, and not bitter. It holds up well to long infusions without getting too astringent.

200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more

This is a delightful Chai. I like the smell of it more than the taste, but the taste is very balanced. It is not too sweet or spicy. Some Chai blends have a Big Red taste, but this one is nice. It holds up well to long infusions, which means I can put it in my thermos and drink it all day.

190 °F / 87 °C 8 min or more
