I love that some proceeds from this tea goes to a person in need, that is awesome! Now, this tea looks pretty good for a bagged tea…it’s full loose leaf tea and not chopped up tiny pieces of “tea”. Now, I did not realize that this had licorice root in it or I would have skipped out on this one and tried a different one. BUT since I didn’t realize that until much later, oh well. You can taste the green tea, a nicely vegetal – sweet grass taste with a touch of citrus. Now, the licorice root comes into play in the aftertaste…maybe even a bit before, it hits the back of my tongue and makes itself known! To me the mixture of the citrus and the licorice root melds together and reminds me of lemongrass, not bad if you like lemongrass, but unless I am eating a Thai dish of some sort I don’t care for a lemongrass taste in my drink. But other than that this is pretty good, just don’t be fooled thinking this is going to be a peachy tasting green tea :-)

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!
