I made a wonderful soy matcha latte to get myself emotionally prepared for the huge snow storm that is coming to Utah. I whisked 2 teaspoons of this matcha in about 3 tablespoons of hot water. When it was well blended, I stirred in about 8 ounces of soy milk. I highly recommend you try it.
33 Tasting Notes
I’m not normally a fan of Japanese green tea, but I picked this one up on a whim. It is very mild and not too vegital, so it has been a very enjoyable tea for me. It took a few tries for me to brew it correctly, so be careful. It is easy to over steep.
So far, this is my favorite green from Teas, etc. It is mild and not too grassy.. a great afternoon treat.
I love drinking a pu-erh in the morning. Probably because it looks like coffee. This morning, this cup from teas etc. hit the spot!
I usually love pu-erh tea, but this one tasted particularly fishy this morning. And not in a good way.
As a long time fan of Adagio’s golden monkey, I thought I’d try this version. It was decent, but didn’t quite pack the punch that I was anticipating. Next time, I will try to make it a bit stronger.
I’m enjoying a bagged tea at work this afternoon. The lemongrass flavor overpowers any green tea that may or may not be present. Nevertheless, this is an enjoyable afternoon tea.
This is a an average pu’erh. The flavor profile is rather one-dimensional. I enjoy drinking this in the mornings at work because it is dark and strong enough to be a good coffee alternative, and the pressed mini cakes make preparation simple.
Chinese green teas are very underrated in the tea world. I encourage all the Japanese Tea fans out there to try a Chinese green tea today.
This one is light and only slightly vegetal. A perfect complement to the Thai food I enjoyed for lunch.
I’m closing out the day with a mug of this white peony sweetened with a hint of agave nectar. Goodnight, folks.
It took a few months for my taste buds to truly appreciate the complexity of this tea’s flavor profile. As I sip my cup this afternoon at work, I can honestly say that this is the best tea I have ever consumed.
I started me workday this morning with adagio’s irish breakfast. I’m not sure why i keep coming back to it, because I don’t particularly enjoy the flavor. I guess it is a soothing pick-me-up for a Monday morning.
This tea makes a much better cold brewed iced tea than a hot tea. It’s a soothing refreshment after an invigorating Sunday afternoon bike ride through the mountains.
I lived in my car for a few months last year as I drove around the country exploring and trying to figure out where I wanted to live. Whenever I stayed the night at a national park, I would wake up early, boil water on my camp stove and make cup after cup of Tao of Tea’s Pu-erh Tuo Cha. Such an amazing way to start a day whether among the ominous Colorado rockies, deep in the evergreen forests of Washington, or lost in the Iowa corn fields.

I bought this dark roast oolong along with the light roast oolong I wrote about yesterday. It starts out smooth on the tongue and finishes on a dry, slightly bitter (but still pleasant) note. It is a solid oolong, but when it comes time to restock, I think I will stick with the light roast version.
This is a light, yet extremely flavorful wu yi oolong tea. Better than any oolong I have tried from American tea sources.
As with any tea purchased from yunnan sourcing, the quality of this tea is mind-blowing. While technically an aged pu-erh, this tea tastes a lot like a Lapsang Souchong. It has a nutty, smoky flavor and a liquor the color of a traditional oolong. Plus, it is good for 5 or more steepings.
I purchased this tea to be served iced this summer, but for the first steeping, I decided to make it hot. It is an okay, flavored green tea. The fruity flavor is not overpowering. It has a slight dry/bitter aftertaste. I’m not getting any of the “vegetal” flavor the other reviewers were experiencing.
I made a pitcher of iced cha cha the other day and I added a small amount of rooibos mainly to make the end product a more pleasant color. I think this will become a staple for me during the hot summer months.
I got this tea as a free sampler from teas etc. It has a very weak, unimpressive flavor profile. I even tossed the leaves back in for a minute more steep time, but the flavor did not improve. It was packaged in a small clear plastic bag, so this tea might have gone south due to prolonged sun exposure in their warehouse.
Becuase I’m vegan, my mom struggles to figure out what to send me for holidays. She sends my brother candy and cookies, and for me, she settled on tea. I couldn’t be happier! I got this one for Easter, and I am pleasantly surprised that a tea from World Market is this good. Because of it’s low caffeine content, it makes a perfect cup of tea to enjoy with a good book as I am getting ready for bed.
I’m not usually a fan of green tea, but today I made a nice matcha smoothie with vanilla soy milk and agave nectar. Now, I just need to figure out the best way to make hot matcha. I failed miserably once already.
This is a decent basic pu-erh. I drink it in the morning when I am in the mood for something more pleasant than coffee.
