drank Bombay Chai by Mighty Leaf Tea
67 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.

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

drank Irish Breakfast by Harney & Sons

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.

drank Orange Dulce by Mighty Leaf Tea

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!

drank Six Summits by Teavana

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.

drank Azteca Fire by Teavana

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.

drank Oi Ocha Dark by Ito En
67 tasting notes

Even though Ito En is the equivalent of Lipton Tea in Japan, I really enjoy their iced tea. They are extremely refreshing and don’t contain any sweetner. I tried this one for the first time today and it has a stronger flavor than their regular green tea. It kind of has a grassy/sencha flavor to it. The regular Oi Ocha tastes more like barley/popcorn/gen mai cha to me.
