Feeling the need for something a little stronger this morning, so the Yen Bai is it :) It feels like a treat to drink this tea.
75 Tasting Notes
Ended yesterday with this tea, so I decided to start with it today :) It’s still a solid choice – light and soothing. Perfect for easing into a Sunday.
Enjoying this iced today! It has such a cheerful, fruit flavor and it really does help with my allergies (like all rooibos). I highly recommend it to allergy sufferers :)
Bought this on a recommendation from Wystone’s World Teas in Lakewood, CO. It is as good as they said, smooth in taste, rich in color. At first, it seemed to have a smokey scent, but really it’s just a rich smell. There is no skimping on flavor with this tea, and the color is almost as dark as coffee, but the tea is finely flavored, not bitter. Definitely worth the price!
Drinking this in a blend with Ceylon Black – iced. I’ve given the Ceylon emphasis, so this isn’t bad. I doubt I’d drink it alone, though – too strong.
Drinking this at work and enjoying it.
Enjoying a cup of 7 Treasures this morning after several days without my customary cup first thing in the morning. This tea is perfect for a cool, sunny morning – light, warm, subtly flavored. It grounds me in the moment, which is what the best tea can do, bringing me into my body, my setting, my life. Love it!
Well, after our second warm day in a row, my allergies kicked up big time today, so of course I brewed up a pot of rooibos as soon as I got home from work. It really does make a difference.
In the spring when I’m sneezy, I drink this all day, and it helps to keep the allergies manageable – without the need for otc pills, which I hate. Unfortunately, Teavana has discontinued this rooibos. A shame, because it really is tasty – floral and fruity, but never heavy or artificially ‘flavored’.
I picked up a supply of this late last year after it was discontinued. I have enough left to last me about a week. Then, I’ll have to find another rooibos. Luckily, the Rooibos Tropica is also wonderful and has not been discontinued :)
It’s warming up out there, so I’ve made several pitchers of iced tea lately. This is one of my favorites, but it’s almost gone:( I wish Teavana hadn’t discontinued it! I’ll have to try to find it elsewhere.
Drinking my 7 Treasures at work today, which means I can’t always enjoy it fully, but it’s so tasty and soothing that it pulls me into a quiet meditative moment with most sips :)
It’s a cold, wintery spring day here in Colorado – though the sun is shining now :) We have snow peaks on the downy tips of our trees here, so this tea seemed appropriate. The taste is vegetal, leafy green, today. I still don’t taste any peach, but it’s warm, so it’ll do.
Still no peach flavor, though I get a slight scent of it upon opening the tea tin. Do I have a peach impediment? Still, a good tea :)
Finishing up the Tamaryokucha…just dust now, but I don’t want to waste it :)
Picked this up yesterday and I quite like it. Like most white teas, it has a light flavor – not too heavy, but definitely interesting. I couldn’t quite taste peach, but it has a nice floral/fruit quality.
No notes yet.
Drinking Three Kingdoms Mao Feng after replenishing my supply. Still a great everyday green tea with good flavor. Must say though, I may never shop at a Teavana store again. I’m really tired of the hard sell tactics they use…‘accidentally’ measuring more tea than you asked for, pushing one more tea, and one more tea to make their 1 lb. discount, which isn’t that great of a discount (only 10% on already overpriced tea). I like some of their exclusive blends enough that I’ll keep buying them, but I may start buying exclusively online.
Enjoying a nice cup of Hairy Crab Oolong :) A great tea and a lot of fun – just because of the name!
Starting my day with the Darjeeling :) It’s cloudy out today and does not feel like spring, so this is comforting.
Sipping a nice cup of Margaret’s Hope Darjeeling – what a great accompaniment to reading about Victorian England :)
Home sick today and drinking Acte II from The O Dor – my favorite tea. It’s about time to order more, as I’m down to just a few weeks worth. This tea really is exquisite. It’s so unique and lovely.
Brewing this up now for iced tea this afternoon – Raspberry Black and spring warmth just go together :)
I’ve been enjoying this all morning :) It’s a favorite. In my Sorapot, I can really see how BIG the leaves are when they open fully. They’re the biggest tea leaves I’ve ever seen.
Don’t let the name of this oolong scare you! It’s really good – light and slightly sweet, with just a hint of a fruit taste at the end. I bought it at a great little Denver neighborhood tea and bike shop – yes, I said tea and bike shop :) They repair bicycles and sell tea – what a concept! But really, it’s the tea that matters to me, and this is incredible!
Trying this for the first time tonight. The description rather intrigued me, and seems an apt description of this tea. It has an enjoyable flavor – not sure I taste almond, but I’m definitely enjoying the grassy flavor, the hint of citrus peel, and the lovely coloring. To me, tea is about so much – taste, texture both wet and dry, aroma, color, and this offers a lovely, layered experience. It’s a great tea to relax with.
