Nice and flavourful as a cold-brewed refresher.

I made this cold a while back and haven’t had it since. But I brought a little to work with me today and it is so much better hot than I expected! Yum. I hope the caffeine has some sort of effect.

This type of tea (I think I’ve seen it called king’s tea?) fascinates me whenever I see it, so I figured for the steep price of $4.34/50 g I should throw some into my Lochan order.

It’s proved very interesting. It smelled like an herb shop but very mild. I thought I could make out the scent of licorice which I think is added to these sometimes. The rolled-up leaves look completely encased in a powdery substance and took longer to open up than normal. I expected it to taste pretty strongly of ginseng, but my first sip really surprised me; it just tastes like a dark, toasty oolong. But, as I proceed and especially on the second infusion I’m getting a strong aftertaste and a sweetness that really lingers at the back of my tongue. I’m still not sure what I’m tasting, but it’s an interesting adventure.

Yep, I ordered tea from India on a Friday and it arrives Tuesday morning as I’m trying to decide which tea to start the day with.

This smelled delicious and appropriate for helping me get productive after an unofficial long weekend of lounging and birthday celebrations. It’s quite tippy and brewed up a lovely dark ambery brown. It’s nice and deep and malty and very smooth on its own but I couldn’t help adding a little milk a few sips into it.

Hmm, I expected to like this one more. Not bad, but very little body and a bit bitter today. Must try again soon.

ahhhh my shizuoka shincha preorder from yuuki-cha was cancelled as there was radiation found in teas from that region

Jessie

Oh, no! I ordered a shincha as well but haven’t heard anything either way about it.

QuiltGuppy

Mine was cancelled, too, but they were really helpful in finding me a different tea to replace it with.

So, three days ago I re-committed to low-carb, grain and processed foods-free eating. My blood sugar and my physical self are loving it. However, my head is going through serious carb withdrawal after a winter and spring of lazy eating. I’ve been foggy and groggy for two days straight. I’m trying to use tea as a distraction until the “low carb flu” passes, and hoped this might help my mental clarity in the mean time.

It hasn’t. I don’t think anything will. But it is tasty and makes me feel healthy! This one actually grows on me the more I drink it.

I ordered a pack of it! Though it is taking its time to arrive.

Jessie

Did it arrive successfully? What other blends did you try? I’m thinking of placing an order with them soon. I really love the simple quality of all the teas I tried.

Sorry, have not logged in for a long time. I liked this very much – but am not drinking much tea this summer. I also got their famous Blueberry Hill which had been out of stock for ages and really liked it – a creamy thing with blueberry and vanilla and something else and it all mixes really well; it reminded me of their rooibos Berry Berry Nice (which i adore). And I tried their chai which was nice but not a must.
