193 Tasting Notes
Thankful this tea is back in my life! I was glad when Frank said he would reblend it if I purchased a pound. Well Happy Valentine’s Day to me! (LOL) I ordered the pound and it arrived yesterday! WOW this was the first time I ever got a pound of tea at one tea (at least of one particular kind- That’s a lot of tea!!! I am in tea heaven! Thanks again 52TEAS!!!!!!! You are wonderful!!!! I enjoyed a cup of this at work this am!
I LOVE THIS!!!! I couldn’t wait to try the pineapple sencha after trying the apple sencha earlier this afternoon. I ordered the apple for my mom and the pineapple for me. This is so so good! I did use the recommended short steep time of 30sec. and boiling water and the pineapple taste is simply amazing! I think this would be great iced but I am enjoying this hot. It kind of gives me the feeling of summer but with warmth during these cold cold days here in Pennsylvania. This one will be on the reorder list for sure! I think next time I am going to order the orange sencha as well!
I placed my first Den’s Tea order and it came really quickly! I ordered the $3 sampler for novices and am really looking forward to broadening my horizons and trying them! My ultimate is to one day try matcha! Have been a little timid and nervous for some reason about Matcha. I figured a great place to start would be Den’s tea sampler to try some Japanese greens!
I actually ordered the apple sencha and pineapple sencha in addition to the sampler pack. The apple sencha specifically for my mom but I took some out of the pack to try. It is great…really taste quality in this. The apple is awesome. Now I can’t wait to break in the pineapple sencha! Really like this, too bad that pouch went home with my Momma! Can’t wait to see what she thinks of it!!
Thanks to Chi of Tea for the sample offer! This is the first of their teas I am trying. Smell from sample pouch=Orange. It is a pleasant orange! This has a hint of ginger taste but orange is the dominant flavor. Very nice! I am hoping the ginger and ginger root in this will help settle an upset stomach from eating a McDonalds Quarter pound cheeseburger last night. That would be great! This is a tea I could definitely see reordering!
Ok this time I steeped for appropriate time and still am getting a “weird” combo…I think it is the berry herbal and black thing that is not meshing well for me. Too berry like medicinal even at the correct steep time. This I must say is the first Harney’s tea I was not super impressed with. I can finish the cup but not something I would reach for again.
