drank Peppermint by Harney & Sons

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.

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 :)

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.

Pretty good, but not getting any real strong flavors that I’d expect. The sugar and caramel are more on the nose, not so much in the tea. But still enjoyable.

Since I’m generally not huge on pu-erhs, this is a great middle ground for me. One of my favorites as far as pu-erhs.

If this is you trying to be cryptic, you are definitely succeeding!

drank Lend a Helping Hand by Steepster

Hmm, I used a good amount of tea for this one. I can’t remember exactly, but it was something like __lbs and __ . __ounces (1 decimal).

That’s kinda cryptic…

And it came in a fairly large box. it was something like 18.5" W x 13" H x 12.75" D.

drank Lemon Zest by Joy's Teaspoon

Something about this didn’t sit right with me. It’s got a lemon flavor, but doesn’t really seem like a real lemon flavor/smell. It’s oddly flat, making it seem fake. I think some of that comes from the earthy, sweetness of the rooibos, but still kinda weird. It feels like it’s sitting between the two different teas that it should be but can’t make up its mind, so it hangs out in the middle not really embracing any flavor.

Pretty nice blend. I’m not getting a ton of tea green/black base blend and actually would have thought it was an tisane had I not looked here. But the sweet fruit is at a good level, nice and tangy but not overly so in an artificial way. It’s got a little more body to it than some of the other really fruity tisanes/7 treasures I’d compare it to.

Very delicious. I get a little floral/sweetness that’s silky smooth on the nose. The liquid is nice and sweet and the smoothness carries through on the tongue. The creamy, milky-ness is really enjoyable. This seems like a really solid milk oolong favoring fewer powerful flavors over several subtle, deeper notes.

Interestingly, I get a little spice at the end of each sip. Not sure what’s going on there but it’s interesting nonetheless.

Brews a light yellow with a greenish tint and smells amazing. It’s so thick yet smooth when you take a sip. I can’t quite place the flavor it reminds me of but for some reason it makes me think of corns and grains. Really nice for oolong lovers or a green tea fan looking to branch out.

Bio

I’m one of the creators of Steepster!

My favorites are greens and oolongs but I’m open to pretty much anything (although I’m still working my way through 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.
