This mugged me. It’s so smoky for me that it reminds me of a barbecued pig, i finished the cup I made, but since, it’s been sitting on the shelf collecting dust, perhaps I will try it again someday…

reminiscent of pine.
Every time I have this it reminds me of Coca-Cola sans the nasty sweetness and carbonation.

Thank you GOD! Tonight when I prepared this tea, I was very meticulous. I pulled out the tea scale, thermometer and the spring water. I waited for the water to come down from 93 C to 85C (I live in CO, so H2Obp is 93ish) and poured the water into my vessel so the leaves floated for a bit before being completely submerged. As I was pouring, the aroma was creamy, like pie. Exactly three minutes later, I decanted and took my first sip. It was like dessert: sweet, smooth, like liquid candy.
I never want to run out of this, but I cannot wait to drink more tomorrow =)
I would say the description of this tea is dead on, except for the tinge of jasmine I am getting. I don’t like jasmine. I’m giving this a low rating for MY reference.
Today was another long day in the laboratory. I was excited to come home to some new teaware. I received the Tea Forte Kati double walled ceramic tea brewing cup-thing. I decided to make some oolong and this came to mind.
It tastes like lentils and that’s all I have to say.
This is interesting. I believe this is the second pot I’ve drank of this tea. When I brought the cup to my mouth it had the familiar scent of genmaicha and marijuana- no pun intended. It’s subtly sweet and is very smooth.
Last night my partner and I had a “date night” 60 miles from our home. All day I had been waiting for this tea parcel to arrive, but I knew it wouldn’t be delivered until the evening. After having indulged James’ affinity for microbrews, we were back on the road home. Pulling up the drive, I saw a quaint package sitting on our porch and my excitement was stoked. After having unloaded our purchases, I quickly ripped open my desideratum.
The dry leaves evinced my grandma’s almond cookies—okay, my grandma never made cookies, she made sopaipillas, but regardless, it was an olfactory orgasm.
I made a pot in the Beehouse pot I had bought earlier in the day.
The liquor was creamy, ripe with almond flavor and filling— I was sated.
I think it was worth the restless night to have tasted this delightful tea.
Nice Yunnan, good creamy body, not as sweet as Golden Yunnan from Rishi.
This is really the only tea I’ve been drinking for the last week or so. I really like it, it’s a nice break from my traditional Earl Grey first thing in the morning.
Got this for Valentine’s Day and decided to try it this evening. It’s very pleasant, light yellow liquor. I saw lavender colored things in the dried leaves and was worried it would mess with the bergamot flavor, but they didn’t. It reminds me of a light version of my normal Earl Grey…yum.
I got this for Valentine’s Day from James…I picked it out so it wasn’t offensive. It reminds me of Trident Strawberry Splash chewing gum. It’s very refreshing and that’s all I have to say now.
I tend to steep white tea longer than most…5 minutes give or take a half.
I was a little afraid of this, it ended up getting pushed to the back of my cupboard.
My first sip was reminiscent of my coffee drinking days. The initial taste was familiar—vanilla soy latte. The after taste is definitely coconut.
I’m on the fence.
I used one teabag in a liter of water and steeped it for four hours… or so in a thermos. When I finally got to drinking it, it was absolutely divine. A rich almond aroma came from the cup, a vanilla flavor ran across my tongue and a deep, sweet almond flavor remained on my palette. Must remember not to take this to class, it distracted me from running my nuclear magnetic resonance spectra.
Very mellow. Glides over the tongue very smoothly, the after taste is the same as eating a vanilla bean, which I have been known to do on occasion.
the leaves reminded me of bonito flakes, kinda smelled a little fishy. The end product has an aromatic wisp of cotton candy, but it’s a pretty typical green tea with a itty bitty smokey tinge. Overall, it’s simply good. I may have over steeped it because my pupkins grabbed my attention after the timer went off.
I took a nap, woke up and finished off the pot of now cold tea. This tastes a lot like genmaicha
This has been sitting in my cabinet for a couple of months now. I have been afraid to try it, because I haven’t been too impressed with the Superfruit Teas TRoP has; Blueberry is the exception.
While brewing, it reminds me of bubble gum, the color took a while to emerge, but it began to arise like a red snake slowly dispersing in swirls.
Three minutes is maybe a bit too long for this blend. It is a smidge tart and bitter, but unlike most teas with hibiscus, I don’t feel like I have to force it down.
Nicely balanced blend of masala. Robust anise/cinnamon aroma with a nice cardamon taste. Hue was an orange red.
A little aside:
I decided to drink this for lunch, not having eaten anything since 6 a.m., after the second sip I got the jitters.
I don’t know what I am always so hesitant to drink jasmine white tea, but as soon as it enters my mouth it’s heaven for the first half of the cup, after which the jasmine becomes too strong and begins to upset my stomach. I will try it a few more times before my final verdict.
Very uplifting spot of tea.
While I began drinking this I noticed something very familiar in this, but I couldn’t isolate the subtle flavor and thought that the sunflower seeds I had eaten earlier where tainting my palette. I looked to see what else was in this and turned out that it has sunflowers in it. The blending of mango and sunflowers is a very nice complement. This may become a new favorite.
I was given this at an office gift exchange. The quality of the tea is lacking— severely.
