drank Stomach Ease by Yogi Tea

Blech! I found this in my housemate’s tea stash. It smelled good so I thought it might be good iced. Too heavy on the licorice. My stomach’s feeling fine, so I cannot review its stomach easing properties.

It reached triple digits today. Came home and poured this over ice. I feel cooler already. Best of all, there was a sale at H Mart, 2 for $3 for Oi Ocha today! Yeah!

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.

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!

Were you sipping houjicha? I can’t imagine it iced.

Indeed, it was their featured iced tea that day. I haven’t tasted it in a while, though.

drank Teas' Tea Pure Green by Ito En

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.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec
