drank Peach Oolong by Adagio Teas
46 tasting notes

Steeped in ingenuiTEA, with more leaf than usual. Then added brown sugar and served iced. It’s okay, but has a rubbery (??) afterscent(?) I’m not too fond of. Nobody else seems to notice though. Left this out in the open— and not locked up in my special tea cabinet :P— for public consumption.

mmm…. Yummy!

This was one of the four oolongs I got in the Competition sampler pack, and I can see myself having this particular one quite often. Can’t wait to try it cold-brewed.

drank Darjeeling Tea by Twinings

I have this in the “Light Classics” packaging which says this is a “delicate tasting tea”. Uh. Not.

I first followed the instructions on the envelope, which said to steep for 3-5 minutes. I decided to go with 3 minutes. I took a sip, and promptly spit it out. I know Darjeeling is astringent, but geez. That was horrible.

However, steeped a little under 2 minutes, it’s alright. I like the light golden color, and the faintly floral smell. Having it now iced with a little sugar, and it’s like the watery stuff you get in restaurants. I’ll try to use it up this way (I got a box with 50 bags. sigh) but I don’t really like it enough to buy again.

Preparation
Boiling 1 min, 45 sec

drank Green Tea Chae Orient by Lipton

It’s actually okay. I don’t know the exact difference between this one (with the chinese character on the box, and individually wrapped bags) and the regular “Clear Green” tea bags, but I prefer this one. Perhaps it’s a little less bitter. Yummy in the morning with a Nutella sammich.

I also prefer this one over the Clear Green, by a BIG margin.
