I picked this tea out of my sampler pack to drink last night before bed. When I first opened the pouch a strong beer smell hit my in my nose, possibly even punched me in the nose! So with that being said we’re already off to a bad start. I steeped the tea as directed for 3mins, the color was amber and the smell was of hot beer. I slowly sipped my tea and sure enough… sweet hot beer taste! I let it cool off a bit and I suppose the nectar flavoring came out a bit more, but still none the less this tasted like a sweet, hot beer! I believe this tea is one that you would have to have an acquired taste for; I on the other hand do not have that acquired taste and it probably doesn’t help that I loathe beer either. I had to pour this one down the drain.

Beer!? Weird…lol…

Lol YES!!! I’m pretty sure there is some hops in this tea somewhere haha. I noticed Erin made a comment about it tasting like beer and/or yeast which I thought surely that isn’t the case, but sure enough this is beer tea!

I remember really disliking this one too, but the moment you said “beer” I went “aha!” I thought it was more of a musky melon, but beer makes more sense and brings the taste vividly back to mind. ::shudders::

Yes, I am pretty sure that I am scarred after having this one! ughhhh! Hopefully the next sample of Golden Moons that I try will make up for it.

Bio

I am a tea enthusiast who is always looking to try a new tea, but my all time favorite is jasmine pearls…or anything with jasmine in it really. I also am a sushi fanatic and simply can’t live without it. Outside of my fanatasy world of all things tea and sushi I am an executive assistant, mother of 2 and personal taxi/maid and chef service for my little family.

But back to the tea!

I love Jasmine Pearls, just about any White Tea and then we have Pu-erh coming in last as my top three.

However, I still enjoy a good Earl Grey tea, the more bergamot the better! I have a fond place in my heart for Matcha, especially iced Matcha Lattes. Flavored green teas are always fun, but I tend to stay away from the overly grassy tasting ones… they always remind me of a wheatgrass shot!

It takes a special black tea to really win me over, for me I find that they all taste too much alike or tend to be too bitter at times; I think I am more so bored with them.

Oolongs are fairly new to me and I am finding that these are really good and they will probably end up making it as one of my top contenders!

Pu-erh I have yet to try; I am very curious, but a bit scared to try it… something about being aged in a cave just frightens me a bit, but I would like to try one in the very near future :-) Update – I have tried a few pu-erhs and I can’t get enough of them! While they are definitely an acquired taste they are lovely! This has now taken over rooibos in my top 3 teas of choice!
