A nice balance of flavors! Simple and pure, pretty much just lemongrass and black tea. This tea cafe is tiny tiny, in a tiny corner in Davis, CA. Great tea service there too! I’m having it iced right now, quite refreshing!

I love this tea! Big fan of genmaicha, big fan of matcha. Soybeans add a nutty and sweet flavor that reminds me of a barley tea. Delicious! Good iced too!

I found a use for this tea. I found out my milk was spoiled this morning and I wanted pancakes, so I used the tea instead! It was great! I put in cinnamon and vanilla, and nothing tasted polleny! Yay for cooking with tea!

It’s alright. Tastes like pollen. A little too perfumey tasting for me. Not bad iced though.

I feel like I have not had a good darjeeling, or at least not a good one that is properly prepared. Darjeeling is definitely not the tea I would have all the time, because of my forgetfulness when the tea is steeping. Yes, I have tried timers. The alarms I tend to shut off like my alarm clock in the morning, so timers do no good for me.

This one, though, is likeable. I like the grapey aroma, and the taste is like a light black tea, but with no bitterness. And I did oversteep this one, and still no bitterness. Even better iced. Probably the first darjeeling that I like!

Golden Moon provided my first good Darjeeling experience, too. Like you, I think I just didn’t have good ones before this, because I’ve had several good Darjeelings since then. But you never forget your first time. Great tea. I’m almost out.

Super light, super fresh tasting! (Even for an old sample like mine is!) I think I may have oversteeped it a little, I got distracted by something shiny. But it was still clean and fresh tasting, a hint of greenness, a hint of sweet. Really nice!

This was great! Smells and tastes like coconut cookies! Tasty hot and iced!

Not bad, light tasting, even though the tea turned out darker than I was expecting. I want a stronger melon taste I think. Not as strong as Asian candy, but stronger than what it was.

Phil Hovatter

I agree with your comment about the lightness of the melon flavor. It’s as if the tea maker wants you to stretch to taste it. I like mine a little less subtle. I think I’ll brew it hotter and longer next time to see if I can’t coax more out of it.

Let me know how that goes Phil! I would be willing to give it another chance!

Picked this up along with my Original Vanilla Custard Beard Papa’s. Great for walking around on chilly nights in LA! Not too strong in either lemon or ginger, just the right balance. And the sweetness from the honeybush rounds it all out. Good one!
