drank Teas' Tea Pure Green by Ito En
59 tasting notes

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.

drank Darjeeling Black Tea by Rituals

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.

drank Toasted Rice by China Mist

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!
