I have had this tea in my cupboard for a while but this is the first time I’ve tasted it.

The aroma of this tea is yummy – nutty, but also strongly fruity with the addition of coconut and pineapple added to the blend. It’s kind of like a nutty twist on a pina colada.

This is a delicious flavored green tea, and I like that I can taste the green tea amid the strong flavors of fruit and nut. The green tea has a nice, buttery taste. Fresh and smooth. The nutty flavor is toasty and sweet, and the fruit flavors are not as strong as the nutty flavor – which is good. I haven’t decided though whether I taste more walnut or almond…

My second infusion of these leaves is also quite tasty – I decided to add just an itty bitty, teensy tiny pinch of salt to the tea, and added a nice dimension to the flavor. Not salty by any means, but it did enhance the nutty qualities nicely.

Lori

Hmmm..clever idea w/the salt…This tea sounds very intriguing…

Ricky

Haha, green …. walnut. For some reason that just sounds funny. I think I’ve been playing too much Plants versus Zombies.

DOUBLE DUTYING This Review!!! A tea with a product!!!

As for the tea I am sampling at the moment…WALNUT GREEN

LiberTEAs sent this one to me, too! :) Thanks girl!

Yes…the first thing that hits you is the SCENT! It’s every bit of Walnut Green Tea you could imagine and then some. It tastes JUST LIKE it smells! Nutty yet refreshing! This is pretty good. I’m scoring it a bit high because it really surprised me and it’s more complex than “just” your average walnut taste. I wouldn’t say it’s like Maple Walnut Ice Cream in the form of a tea but it’s fairly close.

I also happen to be drinking this in my NEW Kati Loose Tea System by Tea Forte
http://www.teaforte.com/store/tea-accessories/cups/kati-loose-tea-system/
I just got it today!!! WOOT!
I am now a proud owner of the “GRASS” Design one.

Description on the Tea Forte Site is:
Our double-wall ceramic tumbler and integrated stainless steel infuser make brewing loose tea by the cup simple. The innovative double-wall construction keeps tea hot and the tumbler cozy to hold. Brews a generous 12 oz cup and is dishwasher safe.

My findings on the products…first the tumbler itself…
It’s heavy-duty which I like. I am keeping this at work so I tend to walk around with my WORK mug. I will say that THIS is NOW going to REPLACE my old ‘mug’ completely. I really LOVE the design! Like I said, it’s the GRASS one and it’s “so me” because some people refer to me as a tree hugger or hippie! It’s earthy, natural-looking, and FUN!

I really LOVE the fact that it has a LID. 1 because it keeps the tea itself warm(er) than if the tea is exposed while steeping or infusing like I did it before. And 2 because I am a klutz and will really be benefiting from the usage of this lid!

With the double-wall ceramic the description refers to…I also like this feature because you are still able to pick it up while hot. BUT…it still gets warm…I would have to say it cuts down on the ‘holding temperature’ at least by half…this is my estimated guess I haven’t officially or technically tested it…but to give you an idea of the ‘heat to hand’ comparison…if you know what I mean.

As for the “integrated stainless steel infuser” I would give it a thumbs up as well! I did find it a little less heavy duty than other strainers but it also allows for more movement of the loose leaf. Having said that, tho, it’s also easy to remold into the original shape…so…no worries there.

When you discard your loose leaves (the ones I have tried so far) do stick a little bit but it’s nothing I can’t deal with. The Strainer PERFECTLY fits the tumbler! Like I said before I tend to walk around the office and sometimes spill. While the loose leaf is infusing the leaves stay put regardless. They DO NOT “Jump Over Board” into the liquid…they DO stay put! YAY…NO FLOATIES!

I am going to try and review this product several times with different contacts and teas to see how it handles other ‘types of tea and tisanes" but I am here to tell you my first attempt was VERY successful! I’m such a HAPPY tea drinker at the moment!!!!

The only thing I miss is a handle on the side…but because I am so excited about the actual product and ‘know’ it’s supposed to be ‘different from a mug’ I will certainly look past that!

As for the rating of this post – I’m simply rating the TEA mentioned in the beginning of the post…as for the product from Tea Forte…So far I give it 2 thumbs up! A great addition to ANY Tea Lovers Collection!!! More reviews and ratings coming soon! I will also be posting on my personal tea blog as well a teareviewblog.com down the road!

LENA

I would totally choose the grass design too. Very cute!

~lauren.

I own double-wall beverage glasses that I use for tea – am now really a fan of double-wall cups! I don’t seem to need coasters and I don’t have to wait to hold my hot cups of tea plus the tea inside seem to stay hotter longer! So congrats on your new teacup with lid – I like the blades of grass!

TeaEqualsBliss

Thanks ladies!

denisend

The cup is much prettier than my work mug, but I like the infuser on mine better. I want a combination of the two!

Here’s my mug: I have the black one and got it from Samovar.

Tea Guys is one of those companies that does some really mind blowing flavored blends with lots of little extras in them at reasonable prices. This is possibly the most nutty tea I have ever tasted and I like it. Yes, even more nutty than a nutty oolong. This has a very full flavor profile that is a nice mix of nuts…walnuts, almonds and coconuts…in that order. I don’t really pick up much from the fruits but I bet they add something that I’d miss if they weren’t there. I also pick of hints of something maple or caramel? The one drawback to this blend is that the flavor profile is so full that it completely overpowers the green tea. Flavored tea lovers should at last pick up a sample of this when shopping with Tea Guys. reasonable prices. Thumbs up!

Opening the bag, the aroma overwhelms you. It’s like the best piece of baklava you’ve ever tasted. It’s caramel and walnut and condensed yum. It smells AWESOME.

Unfortunately, it didn’t quite hold up for me after that point. The brew I got was a little weak and flavorless. Once I swallowed, the flavor of walnut and caramel grew on my toungue, but then started to turn into bananas once the tea started to cool. Bananas? Really? I don’t tend to like bananas in my baklava.

I will definitely be trying this again, because it’s got such promise… it just doesn’t seem to be following through for me at this point.

hopefully this one will grow on you. baklava tea sounds too good for words!

wombatgirl

I’ll bring you some next week. See what you think. I may just be having a grumpy tea day. My second new tea this morning didn’t go over that well either.

LENA

Thanks for the sample My Friend Rashad! Apparently I am a big fan of nutty teas. This one is good times! Nice and nutty and creamy too and the green tea isn’t overly astringent. Perfect!

Based on the recommendation of LauraR picked some of this up. (Thank you!)

This is crazy good! Upon smelling my tea haul on the way home I was actually getting really desperate to try this. It kind of reminds me of when I went to this absolutely awesome vegan restaurant in Bellingham, WA (Bloom) and the guy had hooked us up with this batch of super fresh walnut milk he’d just made… (best nut milk I’ve ever had hands down), with less nutmeg and more rock you in the jaw with caramel-esque and very mild coconut undertones. I had to steep this way longer than usual for green tea to suit my taste, but it was so worth it. I’m debating if I have a new favorite. Scary given my black tea preferences.

If you’re looking for a tasty, fun, treat-like tea to enjoy on a Spring or Autumn (or any month, really) evening, the Green Walnut is strongly suggested.

Before you even taste the tea, a full, tantalizing aroma will fill your senses. When the first drop of tea touches your tongue you will immediately taste the lush green, blended to perfection with a butter-like taste of walnuts.

I strongly suggest this tea for anyone looking to explore more outside-the-box green teas.

Inhaled the sweet aroma of almonds, coconut, and walnut before steeping. This was exactly what I was looking for in a dessert green tea. I mainly tasted almond/nuttiness and coconut (with a hint of caramel) but was glad it didn’t overwhelm the green tea; it complements it.

I was pretty excited about this tea, because I absolutely LOVE nutty teas. It did smell fairly artificial when I got it, and sadly MUCH more like coconut than the description led me to think.

Once brewed the tea smelled much more natural like walnuts, however, I after taking one sip, I dumped the cup, because there was a copious amount of oil sitting on the top.

Resteeped it after, still a little oil, but not as much. Got through the cup, but I won’t be using the rest of my sample. Too bad, as this sounded promising.
