Hot – nice light smooth fruity flavor. not much more to say about it since it was discontinued.

Iced – my wife was not happy about this being discontinued. We had to go and restock b/c she asked me to make her it Iced every day. She is not a tea drinking but she loved this. We normally just had it with no sugar and it was good. but the last time we added a little sugar and it was great. the sugar made all of the favors pop.

drank Kukicha by Adagio Teas

I think it is important to try a tea couple of times before you comment on it. For me this tea is a prefect example of why i say this.

As i have said before, green tea is not my favorite. When i first started drinking this tea i did not like it at all b/c i felt it was way to grassy for me. i made it a couple more times and could not finish the cup. Each time making it differently so that i could try to get it to good for me. It was way to grassy for me.

Well i did. It is still not my favorite tea but it is okay. It is grassy. It is a smooth grassy taste. If you are a green taste drinker then you will probably like this tea.

drank Green Pekoe by Adagio Teas
125 tasting notes

this has a wet grass smell. I think this is okay. I am not a huge green tea fan. I do not really care for the grassy taste But this Green Pekoe does not have a strong grass taste. it does not really have mush of a flavor. I think this is good for someone who does not really like green tea or need a stepping stone to green tea.

this was my first pu-erh. I saw it at Whole Foods, and figured i would give it a try. i liked it. it is earthy. I like that it as a strong flavor. It is nice to have them as little discs. When i am at work (or at home) and i do not want to measure out a teaspoon of tea, it is nice to put this out and know you have the correct amount of tea.

Can this tea be renamed to Fruit Loops? Smells and taste like fruit loops.

If you like fruit loops you will like this tea. I like fruit loops.

I totally had the same reaction! Unfortunately I’m not a big fan of Fruit Loops so this one entered my swap rotation…

drank Masala Chai by Teavana

this was my first chai tea. I had it at the store and thought it was pretty good. If it was not discontinued i would definitely get some.

This was the first matcha I ever had. I just finished my package of it today. I think this is a good stepping stone to Matcha. It is sweet and weak. The powder is a very light color. I made four cups the first night.

Cofftea

Absolutely not my thing at all, but just thought I’d like you know it’s back in stock. Did you prepare it like regular matcha or in latte form?

teatoad

i did both…. i like the regular matcha better.

drank Wuyi Oolong by Rishi Tea
125 tasting notes

I needed some tea to keep at work. So the other day I went to Whole Foods and got some of this Wuyi. I am writing this as I taste it, so this is my first thoughts.
Smell – honestly… it smells bad.
First Taste – taste bad. very smooth.
Next Couple of sips – getting more of a smoky, light almond taste.

not bad but not good… i probably will not buy this again.

4 minutes is a long steep for a fired oolong maybe u should try less time… just trying to be constructive please don’t take offence

teatoad

i know what you are saying, I too thought 4 minutes was a long. But that was the instructions that were on the tin, so that is what i tried first. I have tried it a couple more times playing with the time and amount of tea. Still i dislike this tea. I am hating it more and more. I see that liked it iced. I will try that.

drank Pear-Lemon Panache by Teavana
125 tasting notes

By looking at the color of the steeped water, you would think that this tea had very little favor. But after smelling and tasting the tea, you get a burst of pear flavor. The one thing i do not like about this tea is the very sweet after taste. I feel like i just had a sweet tart. I thought that this would be good iced b/c of the sweetness but the flavor of the tea was to light when it was iced.

drank My Morning Mate by Teavana
125 tasting notes

i have been drinking this tea for about 2 months now. I have liked it from the start, but the other day I wanted to play around with it. So I put some extra tea in so i could get a stronger flavor. I normally steep it 5-6 minutes, but this time i only did about 4-4:30. Made a huge difference. All of the flavors stood out more but at the same time blended together. A smooth taste. i am going to be making it that way from now on.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec
