85 Tasting Notes

I was brewing this at my normal 3m time and I’ve found it comes out a bit bitter for my taste. Seeing someone made it at 1.5m in the review makes me wonder if that was the problem. At any rate this isn’t a terrible tea, I’ve been using my generic green tea to supplement it when I make it to make it a little less bitter. I’ll have to try making it for less time. I wasn’t realizing Sencha was a different blend of tea. facepalm

I really don’t know what I’m doing wrong with this. I’ve tried it twice now and in the bag its smells amazing. But once I make it…it tastes almost like cardboard. I know I got this in a swap and I remember steeping it once before. I thought I noted it so I’ll have to see if I enjoyed it better the first time. All in all its not the worst thing I’ve drank, but totally not something I’d pay for.

This is probably one of the best Chamomile based teas I’ve gotten, and as someone whos an insomniac, I’ve tried an unholy crapton.

Very mild and relaxing flavorwise, without too much of any of the flavors. I’m glad I got a good amount of this because its probably going to be a nightly/semi nightly drinker for me.

This…this is lemon with lemon and the scent of pledge. My husband requested it, so he can have it more then likely. Hot its almost acidic. I’m going to give it a shot over Ice the way its suggested in the description, and see if that makes it any better because WOO does it feel like I’m drinking pledge.

I’ll say it again, this tea is phenom. I will be buying more soon. Just drank some while watching Paranormal Witness. Figured it might be something that would keep me calm, since its green tea. Pretty wrong, but I’m still proud that I’ve found a show that can actually freak me out.

I found the iced style of this on clearance at Kroger and I decided I tried it out, stuck two bags in a gallon jug, filled it up with water and waited. What I didn’t realize is that its meant to be hot brewed and then chilled (which is realistically not going to happen and this is probably what I would’ve done anyway) Drinking my first cup of it today, It tastes very mild. I’m assuming thats because the heat wasn’t there to bring out the louder flavors. The scent is really peachy, but the flavor itself is mostly mild black tea. At any rate, I’m getting two pitchers of tea out of this box (gallon size) For two dollars, I don’t mind it.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I just remembered the girl said the store gets their stuff from Metropolitan, so the tea reveiw below actually belongs to this tea. Just fyi

This tea is just lovely (though I bought it from a different seller, all the things here seem right so I’m assuming same tea from different sources?). It has a warm sweetness, and when you add some milk and sweetner, it makes for an extremely lovely and drinkable tea. Anyone whos curious about this, please let me know, I’m looking for a reason to go visit the shop this was bought at again, and buy more.

This tea solidifies that my taste buds have become distinctly more fond of Ginger in the last few years. Its a lovely peach and ginger hybrid when it comes to flavor. Something I could drink daily. Its not terribly darkly colored, or overly flavored. Incredibly well done blend.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

squeak That you like this one really really makes me happy. (Also glad they arrived!)
