It’s a good tea but not one that I would buy for myself. It does indeed have an imperial taste to it. Reminds me of something they might serve at high noon with a biscuit. In some ways this reminds me of a Ceylon. Maybe that’s why I’m not such a fan. The added flavors make up for that though. It’s a good blend, even if it is a little weird.

This one is not an expert of Genmaicha but I’ve drank enough of it to feel like I can tell the difference between companies… etc. This one I find to be mediocre. It’s good but I just don’t quite find myself being happy with every sip like I do with some others I have tasted. This has happened a few times with other genmaichas that I’ve tried. This one is grassy and has a slight rice flavor but not enough to really get my taste buds going.

drank Coconut Oolong by Rishi Tea

A very smooth oolong with a hint of coconut. For awhile I was trying to figure out why the coconut in this tea seemed different then others and then I realized its because it reminds me of a freshly opened coconut.

The flavor vanilla can be hit or miss with tea. I find it’s either too light or just right. Luckily I haven’t found a tea that has over done the vanilla; but I have found one that mixed it with a weird flavor. Anyway, I really like what they did with this one. The smell and the taste are great. Not liking the after taste much but whatever. Do you notice that the steeped smell is also really good?

And I’ve been forgetting… This one is from the Tea box.

Della Terra you got this one right! How pleasant a flavor this tea has! Truly it does have hints of molasses flavor. Makes me want to bake an apple pie or something. It is good hot and surprisingly I also liked it cold. I’ll have to try this again with some honey.

drank Momoko by Lupicia

This taste… it reminds me of my grandma’s bathroom. Though it’s a sad state now a days before she always kept peach smelling soap and what not in there. The vanilla I couldn’t really taste until the tea got cold. Which I found rather odd. Not a tea I would get for myself but glad I was able to try it.

Bathroom tea does not sound pleasant :P

Not sure why I love plain green tea so much but glad I do. This one is quite grassy. Very reminiscent of the teas we had while in Japan. Still below Genmaicha in my opinion but for a straight up green tea it’s well balanced.

I get it…greens are satisfying in a particular way!

drank Dewy Cherry by Adagio Teas
280 tasting notes

Used to hate cherries. Didn’t even like cherry candy anything. But as with most adults my tastes have changed and some how I ended up finding myself liking them. Well…. kinda. I prefer the sour ones. Like in this tea.

The dry smell is great. Would make a great potpourri. But is better as a tea. I didn’t pick up much from the brewed smell. The taste isn’t quite what I thought it was going to be but I’m still enjoying it. Fruity yes but the sour cherry isn’t as present as I thought it would be. Good hot but I like it better lukewarm.

Preparation
165 °F / 73 °C 8 min or more 1 tsp

drank Paris by Harney & Sons
280 tasting notes

The smell is better then the taste, but the taste is good. I’ve never been to Paris but if there were a tea to go along with every city name this one would be a good fit. Perhaps I steeped it too long. I am tasting some bitterness and more black tea then I am the other flavors. I will retry this again and be more careful about my steep time.

Preparation
5 min, 45 sec 1 tsp

I love this tea. I prepare it with just under boiling water and let it steep for 4 minutes. It’s only slightly bitter that way but the flavor stands out more – personally.

Tea. Like coffee and many other things, is basically just flavored water. But don’t you tell any tea or coffee drinkers that.

I’m willing to try out any type of tea, except of course the ones they suggest nursing mothers to not drink. (Like ginseng tea… and I love ginseng sadface)
