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!

drank World Peace by Teaism

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!

My colleagues drink a lot of this everyday. Except their blend doesn’t have cloves, just peppermint and liquorice root. In the shop they buy it in, it’s called The Hairdresser’s Blend, and it’s the absolutely most popular herbal that they’ve got there. I’ve never heard of it from anywhere else before though, but I KNEW it couldn’t be a local phenomenon. :)

drank Orchid Oolong by Mighty Leaf Tea

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.

drank Bombay Chai by Mighty Leaf Tea
65 tasting notes

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.

Wegman’s RULES! :P

I can spend hours there! I read that they use loose leaf teas from Ito EN, Rishi, and Republic of Tea.
