I stopped by my local teahouse, Wystone’s World Teas, for dinner and my favorite Chai. Alas, they were out of chai, but I did pick up some food and this lovely Japanese Sencha. I had previously tried a Cranberry Sencha, and I liked the tea but found the cranberry flavor overpowering. This Japanese Sencha is perfect – grassy, mild, and natural in the way a green tea should be. A fellow patron of Wystone’s said this was his favorite green tea, and I can see why :)
75 Tasting Notes
Not sure if this is the same 7 Treasures I get at Wystone’s World Teas or not, but if it is it is one of my favorites. It has a very subtle flavor, quite peachy, but not overly sweet. I prefer fruity or flowery teas with a subtle flavor – nothing too heavy or sweet – and this fits my taste just right :)
Just picked this up today. So far, not bad…a good everyday green tea. I’ll probably take it to work so that I can make my Histoire Tibetaine last longer :)
Received this and other Primula teas for holidays. I love the look of the blooming teas, but have yet to find one that competes in taste.
I did try one blooming tea that I thought was fairly amazing – called Heart of the Dragon – but I’m not sure what company, if any, it came from. A local tea shop carried it for a while. They purchased all their teas during trips to Asia and also had family there that sent them tea. Heart of the Dragon blooming tea was hand-tied also and, when it opened, the tea leaves spread out like talons and a red rose bud could be seen in the middle. The rose looked just like a heart – and not the cartoon-type, either.
Another unique tea: a green tea with a blend of vanilla and bergamot. It is very tasty and soothing. I would say the vanilla is a bit heavier than the bergamot, so it’s a little on the sweet side – though not artificial at all. Overall, a great morning tea!
This is an exquisite tea – absolutely my new favorite. It’s flavor is fresh and unique. Each floral note dances across the tongue. Acte II is the perfect name, because it is not a one-act tea, but a true bouquet of flavors – the initial act, and then the second act. Love, love, love it!
I’m already making plans to purchase more and don’t intend to ever be without it :)
This is a berry-flavored rooibos with a nice flavor, though I’m having trouble placing the flavor of berry. It might be strawberry…or a blend. Unfortunately, I taste a hint of cough syrup in the cup :( I find all Tea Forte blends a little on the strong side, so maybe that’s it.
A nice mint tea, very refreshing and, of course, mint is good for soothing the body :)
Tried this one a while back, and I remember it fondly. I like the fact that the mango is subtle – just a bit of a fruit aftertaste and not too strong.
My favorite rooibos! Really fantastic as an iced tea. Highly recommended – even if you don’t think you’d like rooibos :)
A great iced tea, and I have no idea why Teavana would cancel it in favor of some of the outrageous flavors they introduced. Raspberry Black is a classic that will never go out of style.
I bought this tea for iced tea over the summer, as my allergies were kicking up a bit. I do think the rooibos really helps with allergies, and this tea has a nice floral quality.
I’m not a huge fan of chamomile, but I received a Tea Forte gift box and tried this. It’s not bad – a good bedtime tea.
Silver Needle – one of the best teas you can buy :)
Very enjoyable tea – great iced or hot. It has a rich flavor that is quite nice :)
Oh, I remember when Border’s used to sell this iced tea! I used to go in just for that and leave with a handful of books :) Maybe I need to buy it online…
Drinking this now. Only steeped for 2 minutes and it’s quite strong, but the overall flavor isn’t bad. Will try to re-steep and see if it improves. The 2nd steep (for only 1 minute) was more palatable.
Tried this a while back and thought it sounded amazing! But… I couldn’t even finish my tiny little first teacup. It may be because I don’t drink tea with milk or sugar and prefer a natural tea flavor. This has an overpowering coconut flavor. If you don’t actually like tea, you might like this, but otherwise…
As they say, Darjeeling is the ‘champagne of teas’ and this one is a good one. Did you know that the letters that follow the name mean it’s a high grade tea? I learned that from a local tea merchant :)
Love, love, love, love this tea :) First tried it at Wystone’s Teas in Lakewood, CO. Went back to Wystone’s yesterday to get more, and they no longer sell it. Bummer :(
One of my faves :)
I tried this tea after getting a sample at Teavana :) I wish I enjoyed it as much as I’d hoped I would. It’s a little bitter with the acai, and the flavor really doesn’t last – the berries are good for one steep only. I prefer teas that I can re-steep and really savor cup after cup.
This has become my favorite all day, every day green tea since I purchased it. It is light but flavorful, a beautifully soothing color.
This is a great loose-leaf tea for ice tea!
