drank Sencha Jou by Tea Wing
112 tasting notes

Probably the best sencha I’ve tasted. Full and complex, it hits all the flavors of a high quality sencha. A really substantial tea that fills the cup well.

Really smooth. Brewed this one a little lite, only 3 mins for some reaason (Mike’s fault). I like this one a lot though. It’s not crazy in your face with the flavor but still easily stands on its own. I could see this being drinkable on a frequent basis.

Flavors: Honey

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 34 OZ / 1000 ML

Can’t wait until mine shows up!

Mine just came, complete with a horse head finger puppet! Yay!

I blame @rickyc for the brew time. I thought it tasted light and he assured me it was a characteristic. He’s known around the office for his terrible, terrible lies.

Really smooth/silky. It’s got a nice and clean finish without overwhelming my palate, which is something black teas can do. Little to now astringency on this one. Pretty nice!

drank Ayame Kabuse by Tea Wing
112 tasting notes

This is the type of green tea I really like. It’s got a great mouthfeel and has a lot of complex flavor packed into each sip. It’s got a corn-like flavor that I associate with lots of quality green teas. A tiny bit of astringincy in this cup, but still very enjoyable. This is a tea of substance. It has a real thickness to it.

Flavors: Corn Husk, Grass

Preparation
155 °F / 68 °C 1 min, 30 sec 3 tsp 14 OZ / 414 ML

drank Green Tea Powder by Unknown
112 tasting notes

Terrible color but tastes okay. Pretty standard green tea taste but a little on the light side. Haven’t had a powdered green tea that wasn’t matcha, so this is a new taste. Didn’t have a whisk though, so the bottom is pretty chalky…

We’ll have to see if Ricky can find out how to actually make this…

Nice, light and sweet. That milky aroma transitions nicely into the cup and leaves a welcome lingering taste on the last sip.

Lowered temp and time. A little more sweetness coming through, but overall too many tannins and not too extraordinary. Not really outstanding in any way. Smokey teas aren’t always my favorites either…

drank Peppermint by Harney & Sons
112 tasting notes

Been drinking this every morning as I recover during what’s now the 3rd week of the flu/strep. Good flavor and holds up well to long steeps and multiple infusions throughout the day. Helps the throat and settles the tummy. I don’t think there is a ton of variation among straight peppermint teas, but this one is solid.

Nicole

3 weeks? That is a serious bug.

Sil

man hope you feel better soon! eesh!

Terri HarpLady

Bummer! Rest & recoup, & hopefully you’ll feel better quickly!

mrmopar

Feel better soon!

Jason

Thanks guys. It’s actually just the start of the 3rd week. First was flu. Second was strep. Mostly recovered now just dealing with a lingering couch.

Jason

Cough :)

mrmopar

My advice, have a cuppa and post in the morning!

Jason

Thanks guys!

drank Genmaicha Satsuki by Den's Tea

NIce and roasty toasty. Could use a little more of the base green tea flavor in contrast to the toasted rice aroma and taste, but still very enjoyable. A solid genmaicha.

I’m one of the people behind Steepster!

I really like oolongs but I’m open to pretty much anything (although I’m still hesitant of pu-erh). Either way, any tea that expands my tastes, teaches me something, or promotes a love of tea is a winner in my book. If you have any questions, shoot an email to [email protected] or PM me.
