Love this stuff. I’m a sucker for the in your face vegetal green teas and this is one of those. Love the smell. I can steep this stuff a good 3-5 times before it starts losing its taste.

This is probably one of my favorite daily green teas right now. Really good stuff! Drink it all the time at work.

I got this maté as a sample with one of my orders and I have to say I’m glad I only had a sample of this instead of a full order. The second I opened up the packet I was turned off by the smell. Decided I’d give it a shot and steeped it for 5 and a half mins at 208 F. It was painful trying to get through a cup of this.

This is the first Sencha I’ve tried but I really like it. Sorta grassy but I like the taste. This stuff is CHEAP compared to all the other Senchas I’ve looked at. Only a dollar an ounce.

Absolutely the best bang per buck green tea. Drink this every day now at work.

Just tried this for the first time. I have to say that so far this is probably the best bang per buck loose leaf tea I’ve ever had. I love green tea and this stuff is dirt cheap and tastes good to boot!

This has to be one of my favorite teas to drink in the morning. Make a cup of this and you’ve got the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee. Nice for those mornings that you need an extra kick!

The smell is almost intoxicating. As another reviewer mentioned, it smells a lot like Big Red bubble gum. Lots of cinnamon and other spices in this one. I’d almost recommend using 1 teaspoon instead of 1.5 just because the spices can be overwhelming sometimes.

So far this is my only mate tea that I’ve tried but I have a feeling it’s going to remain my favorite.

drank Black Dragon Pearl by Teavana

Got this tea during a 75% off deal at Teavana and I am very glad I decided to get the Black Dragon Pearls. Probably one of my favorite teas to have in the morning. Don’t even need to use a teaspoon for these. Just drop two little pearls in my infuser and I’m good to go. Only thing I don’t like about this tea is the smell. Still not sure what to make of it yet.

This tea can be steeped more than once and it still tastes good. When using two pearls I will only steep the leaves twice. If I do three I’ll steep them three times.

200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec
