drank Vanilla Chai by Bigelow

I like chai tea, and I like vanilla. So I kind of automatically like this one. I iced it this time, by steeping it a little stronger, and I added soy and a tiny bit of sugar. I think next time I’ll back off on the soy, because it masked some of the flavor.

drank Ginger Snappish by Bigelow

When I smelled this before I brewed it, the ginger was so strong it made me sneeze. So I brewed it for just three minutes. I think next time I’ll put it in for longer; it’s good but it could be stronger. The lemon is almost an aftertaste, which I like.

I really enjoy this tea. The lemon isn’t to strong, but it’s strong enough. I put in just a little sugar and it’s perfect.

This was fairly good, and different from most green teas I’ve had.

I steeped for 4 minutes, and drank by itself; I didn’t love the flavor, so I added some soy milk, which really improved it in my opinion.

This was alright, but I think I’ll steep it longer next time because it was a little weaker than I was hoping. The taste is nice, but I’d like it to be stronger.

drank Pure Camomile by Twinings

This smells like honey with a tiny whiff of flower. I don’t really like the overwhelming flower scents that some teas have, so I really like this. The taste is pretty mild, but I really enjoy it. I could have drank it straight, but I added a tiny bit of sugar and it tastes like honey and light flower.

drank Jasmine Green Tea by Twinings

This wasn’t bad but it wasn’t overly good. I’m not in love with Jasmine, but I got this as a gift and I think I like it more than most Jasmine Greens. It was pretty mild even as it steeped longer.

This is a really nice black tea. I’m not a huge black tea drinker, but I got this as a gift and it’s a good fallback if I can’t find something else I feel like drinking.

This was my first Gen Mai Cha, and it took me a little bit to get acquainted with the taste. It kind of tastes like unbuttered popcorn, which it turns out I like somewhat. I put in a little sugar, which I thought might be weird, but I definitely liked the addition.
