drank Sencha Fuka-midori by Den's Tea
32 tasting notes

This is one of my favorite green teas because it is so easy. I brew it at ~160 for about a minute (less for additional steeps) and it is always delicious. It is pretty sweet in flavor, and has a very grassy, vegetal aroma. I thought I disliked sencha for awhile, before I tried this tea. I think there were two issues- not brewing correctly (too hot and ending up with a bitter brew) and using low-quality sencha. This is good stuff, and very well priced from Den’s.

drank Hibiscus by t Leaf T
32 tasting notes

I have a blend I call Fruit Punch- it consists of mostly hibiscus, with a little bit of Adagio’s Blood Orange, and a pinch of rose petals. The hibiscus has a very deep, tangy flavor. The orange sweetens it up a little, and the rose adds a nice floral touch. I love my “Fruit Punch” iced, but tonight I’m savoring it hot.

drank Shu Puerh Cake by Ocean of Tea
32 tasting notes

I ended up with a random sample of shu from a friend. It has a nice earthy sense about it, without the taste of a barnyard.

It’s my lucky day! I got a sample of this with my Den’s order. It is wonderful! It has a very rich flavor, and a beautiful deep green color when brewed.

This tea has a very unique flavor- kind of toasty & sweet. Definitely unlike any other tea I’ve tried. I love it- drink it almost daily.

I’m drinking Organic Sencha from a tea shop in Canada- it was given to me as a gift.

drank Green Rooibos by The Tao of Tea

I blend half and half with lemongrass. Green rooibos is more mellow than the red- quite a different flavor.

drank Green Needle by Adagio Teas
32 tasting notes

This tea has a fairly sweet / floral flavor. It is nice when I’m not in the mood for a really “green” flavor. I like it, but it isn’t an everyday tea for me.

drank Gunpowder by Adagio Teas
32 tasting notes

I’m trying the new batch that just came in from Adagio. Love the smoky flavor. I always inadvertently brew it a little strong- since it is so compact, I need to go with a scant 1 tsp per 8 oz.

Cofftea

rather than a scant tsp per 8oz try 2.25 grams per 6oz.

Profile

Bio

I started drinking loose tea in 2007. I gravitate towards Japanese greens and herbal concoctions. I like most greener oolongs, and the occasional Chinese black or pu of any kind. I have my preferences, but I’ll try anything.

I am a stay-at-home-homeschooling mom to 2 boys. I love the outdoors and am a recovering adrenaline junkie. (Having kids will do that for ya.) I hardly have time to brew a few cups of tea a day, and rarely get to enjoy my tea hot, but I am stoked to re-kindle my relationship with Steepster.
