Before steeping: I could distinguish the fragrant matcha as well as the scent of roasted rice.

After steeping: I could not taste any of the matcha.. I was disappointed that this one didn’t taste any different from those available from the supermarket.

Love the scent of strawberries and cream. I taste some bitterness in my tea, but I think it’s because I’ve over-steeped it. I shall try to steep it under 2mins the next time.

This blend tastes best when iced! Steep the tea in boiling water to bring out the flavors, add honey if needed before cooling the tea with lots of ice. Gorgeous fruity summer tea.

Finally found a local stockist for Teapigs! An alternative green tea, plus the light scent of Jasmine works as an effective calming agent. I like that there isn’t a bitter after-taste. Subtle, light and fragrant!

I like to drink this after lunch. The caffeine helps to keep me awake at work. Best tea to stock up in the office. ;)

Love love love this tea. There’s something about roasted rice green tea that’s comforting and uplifting at the same time. The aroma of Japan.

The original Rooibos is too herbal for me, so I thought I’ll give this flavored one a try. Love the vanilla scent oozing from the dry teabag. The scent lingers for about 20 seconds into steeping before the herbal scent of rooibos takes over.

This blend is growing on me. I like that the spearmint isn’t too overpowering. This tastes like a milder version of Tazo® Calm™. Nope, no honey for this one. This is good as it is. Clears a minor headache and induces calm energy.

This tastes delicious with honey. Honey & lemon, what’s not to love? Actually, the lemon zest helped to keep me awake, especially after a heavy lunch. More effective than caffeinated teas in my opinion.

A mild refreshing perk-me-up tea with clean crisp whiffs of peppermint. Drinking this adds a coat of soothing mint to my throat. Comforting. I’ve read somewhere that it relieves indigestion and migraines. Good functional tea I guess, but I’m not too fond of mint teas.. yet. Perhaps I’ll steep this along with one of my other favourites the next time.
