This makes one superior glass of iced tea…Hands down! I must admit I did add a tad bit of mint to this batch just for fun, but the cantaloupe shines through the mint…

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 6 min, 15 sec

Oooh cantaloup mint sounds good!

It is…I thought mint might overpower the cantaloupe, but not at all.

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
24 tasting notes

Without much research or thought I did something kind of silly…I made iced tea with this sample from Verdant. I poured myself a glass to take to work and I was not very happy with the results. It tasted chocolaty! Well, low and behold that is all over the description and tasting notes. I’m sure it would be delish hot, but not cold….I guess I will warm the remainder that I have iced and enjoy!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Stephanie

Yeah, I can’t imagine that one iced! So good hot though…

drank Ginger Peach Tea by Teajo Teas
24 tasting notes

I have been drinking lots of tea lately, but have been too busy to sit down and log anything. I’m sitting now and enjoying a glass of Ginger Peach iced and lightly sweetened. Actually, this is the last of my small purchase of this yummy tea. For me this tea has a great balance of ginger and peach that compliments the black tea well. I will buy more!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec

This is the first oolong that I’ve ordered. I’m not going to rate it yet, because I don’t feel it would be fair. I really need to try a couple of other ones to have a benchmark. I’m on my first steep, and so far it is just okay. I will have to try some other oolongs to know if it is oolong in general, or this version…

Preparation

I went through quite a few oolongs before realizing I should’ve started with a straight one. I feared I really didn’t like oolong tea, but after trying a straight version I knew it was the flavourings that were what I didn’t enjoy.

drank Organic Matcha by DoMatcha
24 tasting notes

I purchased the Domatcha brand after reading favorable comments here. I found a fantastic deal on ebay, so that made the price reasonable. I am a novice to matcha, however, compared to two other plain matchas I’ve tried this very good. The color is vibrant green, the smell is lightly grassy, and the taste is very fresh and almost sweet. I do not detect any bitterness. I like it!

I thought I would drink and make a note on this tea today being that it is St. Patrick’s day…This is a nice tasting rooibos. I can taste both the mint and chocolate, but I would love this tea if both of those flavors were bolder…I guess I was looking for more of a minty hot chocolate, which I’m sure it’s not intended to be…It is good though and I am enjoying it hot, lightly sweetened and with a splash of coconut/almond milk.

drank Mulberry Magic by DAVIDsTEA
24 tasting notes

I was fortunate to receive this in a swap with Emily M! I chose the tea on a whim because of the name. I have NO IDEA what mulberries taste like, so I have no basis for comparison to them. I do really like this tea enough to purchase it. There is a richness to it, which may be the macadamia or the mulberry. In any case it’s really nice and tasty. I drake the majority of it iced and lightly sweetened, but it was also really good on it’s own and hot. Thanks Emily M!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more
Emily M

Glad you enjoyed it!

drank Tropical Mango by Teajo Teas
24 tasting notes

I received this a free sample for Teajo…And, I should say that it was a really generous sample! It just so happened that I consumed an entire fresh mango late last night. This morning I decided it would be a great time to sample while I had mango on my mind. The tea has a really wonderful aroma, quite mango-y. It is really smooth and light in flavor. The Mango flavor is distinguishable and tasty. I enjoyed it plain/hot and sweetened/hot. I also enjoyed a glass iced very much! I’m glad that I still have enough left for several servings:).

I have enjoyed this tea twice now. As others have commented, the watermelon taste is indeed juicy and delicious. I tried it warm with and without sweetener, as well as iced and sweetened. So Good!

Preparation

This is my favorite flavored white! So yummy!

I was really excited to try this tea. It is beautifully handcrafted and special, so I had high expectations. I steeped one of the “pods” in approx 16oz water for 15-20 minutes. I used this long steep time because my plan was to ice it. I tasted it first right out of the kettle and did not get much flavor. I then sweetened it a bit hoping that would bring out the flavor and it did not change it to me…I did end up drinking it as iced tea as planned but it did lack any depth of flavor. It is entirely possible that my method was the problem.
