Finally got around to tasting this iced. I used the cold brew method. However, I left the tea to flower in the container too long, so it tasted bitter. The scent is sweet. It reminds me of the peach gummies I sometimes buy at the Asian market.
56 Tasting Notes
Had a cold brewed iced tea today. Pretty good, but I think I prefer it hot.
I’m sitting here at Zen Tara Tea in Bethesda sipping on one of their iced teas of the day. So nice and refreshing, especially since it’s 93 degrees outside!
This tea was on sale at Harris Teeter last week, so I bought a couple of bottles. As far as teas go, I do prefer Ito En’s Oi Ocha better. This is a good brewed green tea. Less bitter than Honest Tea. Nice palate cleanser.
Last year my boyfriend bought a mountain-load of green tea from Costco. This tea is really easy to prepare. You need to steep the tea for 30 seconds in 176-degree water, remove the tea bag and add any sencha dust left over in the packet. It has a pleasant taste I’ve come to expect from Ito En—really cheap teas but doesn’t skimp out on flavor.
Kind of bitter, like they’ve oversteeped it. This is not my favorite of their iced teas. It tastes best chilled.
Got a cup of tea while waiting for my flight at the Detroit Airport. I was surprised this tea came from Columbia, MD (my mom’s house is near there). Not a bad tea. Not great. I would not go out of my way to get it again unless it was my only choice of tea.
Found a sample tea pouch while looking through my tea cabinet. I think I received it as a free sample at a green festival. It tastes a little grassier than other genmaicha I’ve tried, but it was a good brew for bedtime.
I’m not too impressed with this tea. I can smell the mango and peach, but there really isn’t much of a taste. Granted, I think this tea was purchased over a year ago (I found it in my boyfriend’s mom’s tea box). I will try hotter water and a longer steeping time if I decide to prepare it again.
Lovely fragrance, with a slight sweet hint of chocolate. When it’s steeping, you can smell the chocolate wafting from your mug. Smooth finish. I can see this being a regular fixture in my morning routine.

I like this tea. I’ve been making it lately at night. It only really tastes good when the water is super hot. Not so great lukewarm or iced. This is what I call a “digesting tea”—as in, why did I eat all that Chinese food so quickly? sips Ahh, now I feel much better!
This was the tisane that drew me over to the herbal dark side. I used to poo-poo tisanes until I tried World Peace. The blend of peppermint and licorice makes it great for bedtime, colds, and upset stomachs. It makes an excellent summertime iced tea, too, especially when it’s a billion degrees out. I bet it makes a good toner, too, if you used distilled water. Delish!
Love this tea! I bought a big bag of it on sale after receiving a sample of it in a previous Mighty Leaf order. Usually I am not big on coconut but this is a good “unwinding” tea. The taste rolls off the tongue really smooth-like. The scent is great, too. Subtle and soft.
I tried this tea while at Nordstrom Cafe and liked it enough to buy 100 foil packs (on sale!) from Mighty Leaf’s website. This is the best bagged chai tea I’ve had to date. It actually tastes spicy without having to simmer it with additional spices! Drinking it right now with milk and pepper honey. Prominent spice seems to be anise, so if you are adverse to that, sample before you buy. I can’t wait to steep this tea with fresh ginger, cardamom, cinnamon sticks, and peppercorns!
I purchased this tea on a whim while at Wegmans. I kind of regret only buying $0.84 worth! I normally don’t drink pu-erh because it reminds me of drinking dirt, but this one was fairly nice. I taste the orange when it hits my tongue, but it’s the ginger that’s the predominant flavor in this tea. It goes down spicy and warms the throat. It’s good for the morning but I also found it excellent after a large meal or if I was feeling under the weather.
At Au Bon Pain right now and decided to get this. Good tea. It’s not something I would go out of my way to purchase on its own at the supermarket, but I wouldn’t mind getting a cup if I’m in ABP again.
Orange Dulce is one of my favorite teas. I love the fragrance—floral with a hint of sweetness. It’s lovely plain or even with a bit of milk and sugar or honey. Great for breakfast, too!
This tea is a recent purchase for me. The scent is berry-licious without being cloying (like how some tea blends smell like Robitussin). It’s my new work tea. I like that it’s good for multiple infusions.
I come by Corner Bakery on Mondays and they have a variety of Mighty Leaf teas. I very rarely select Organic Breakfast. As far as this type of tea goes, it’s not bad. Very good with milk and sugar. It’s a good pick-me-up in the morning.
I loved this tea. It is very delicate and refreshing. It smells divine, too. I bet it would be great iced. The only thing I do not like is that it’s fucking expensive!
Used up the very last of this the other night. This is one of the very few rooibos that I enjoy. I don’t think I will repurchase it as I didn’t drink it on a regular basis, but it has a lovely delicate taste and is fantastic iced.
I like the combination of chocolate and chili peppers when it comes to candy but this tea just tasted weird. Maybe it’s just the apple and strawberry. I ended up throwing it away after it sat in my cupboard for a year.
