This combined with English breakfast made quite the lovely start to the day. Very mellow and tasty!
331 Tasting Notes
To quote So I married an Axe Murderer " I believe all Scotish cuisine is based on a dare". Same goes here. What do you do with the left over popcorn kernels that didn’t pop….throw em in a tea pot and see what you get. I happen to like the warm unpopped kernels so I do like this tisane.
Earthy….not as dark as other Pu-Erhs I have had but decent enough to be a daily Pu-Erh.
Ahhh I like this tea more and more. I get a little bit of Earl Grey when I drink this now. The black tea is definitely robust. The Jasmine, honey, and vanilla flavors make it a worthy choice for the afternoon. One of my co-workers commented on how good this tea smells. It is marvelous and the aroma left in the cup is like that of a wonderful Cavendish.
Got this in a box of tea for Christmas….it is not bad. Especially with a splash of almond milk.
This started my morning with a sweet little kick. Really enjoying this tea.
Makes for a great start to the day
Zip-e-dee-doo-da zip-e-tea-a my oh my what a freakin cold day! Plenty of Pu-Erh warming my way….. Oh dear God I forgot how much I love this tea. This is my “treat” tea. Dark like coffee. Smooth as silk. Definitely helps me when I have to deal with the ex-wife. My tin is going to be done soon and that will be sad, but for now I’m enjoying every sip.
You know I’ve been sipping this a lot at the station and I have found it to be quite enjoyable. I would buy this and drink on a regular basis. Bumping it up a bit.
Cold…Need a jump start…for me not my car thank God. Once again I am reminded how much I love this tea. I combined it with the Cha Yen Thai tea and……..woo hoo ready for the radio!
I saw this at a market and wondered if it was the coated Oolong like Dr.Tea’s Oolong Liquorice and I believe Tea ect. I had them both. Dr. Tea’s in the Oolong sampler and the other at a local coffee shop that serves loose leaf tea. I found I have quite the liking for these coated Oolongs. I took a chance on it $7 for 8oz eventhough I shouldn’t be purchasing more tea right. So I get it to the car open the canister and….jackpot coated Oolong! I couldn’t wait to get home and try it. The first steep I don’t know how much tea was there, because it’s kinda like M&Ms you gotta get through the candy shell. However the subtle sweatness of the ginseng came through. Second steep starting to get some Oolong….five great steeps from this tea. The only disappointing part about this tea is that it’s not compete leaves. They are smaller pellets so I’m sure they are cuttings maybe even fannings. Still though a great ginseng tea at a fabulous price!
I took a chance on this one for 2.99. I honesty had to keep myself from eating it as a snack because I love crunching on unpopped popcorn kernels. When steeping there is a nice roasted aroma. I let it steep for awhile. The flavor was very light almost like a watered down coffee or if you just put coffee beans into a strainer and poured hot water on the with out grinding….ahem Not like I’ve done that before. Different but I like it.
Smelling the aroma reminds me of driving down the highway at night in the middle of June, and spending the week at my favorite place to reflect and gain spiritual renewal. Walking along the streets of Lakeside crunching mayflies underneath my feet is one of the highlights of my summer. This was one of the first loose teas I bought when I found the Asian grocery in the area. I find this to be a lovely tea….and a lovely price too. I just grabbed it to take to work with me and yes it’s marvelous. It works very well iced too!
A great start to the morning here!
So I saw this as one of Men’s health 125 best foods for men. I also had coupons for 2 dollars off. So right there it was a win already. I had this iced in August at wedding I was DJing the bride and groom were serving four different Numi teas iced for the guests. Love this tea! I definitely like this one more than the chocolate Pu-Erh….very nice!
Strong and stout and not sweet…like I like my women…..kidding. A good brew for a cold afternoon I’m liking it more getting a little more maltiness… not too bad really.
Finished this up from the black tea sampler. I find this english breakfast brighter than others I have had. The liquor is a little more orange in hue. The flavor kind of reminds me or tomato sauce. Good though.
I’ve had this tea since July and I love it. The aroma when it’s steeping is like puffed rice cereal. Add a little honey and it’s like honey smacks…..Great tea and very affordable. I mixed some the Tradition Green tea powder with some as well. Yum!!
Seriously love this tea!
Every morning…..Okay :)
Had this again this morning. I tried to make fruit roll up out of Canteloupe for my daughter but it came out like chips. So I put a few in and it added some nice sweetness.
My brother found this sitting around at his lab and gave it to me. It seems to be the same blend as TeaGschwendner. First off the aroma of the tea is intoxicating. Mostly you smell the anise and vanilla. I don’t think the flavor of the tea matches the aroma but it’s still quite good. I have not had it iced but would like to try it that way.
I found this at the Asian Market in the area. I wanted to try it since the Houji-Cha is a component of Dr. Tea’s Coffee tea and wanted to taste it separately. I love the light roasted aroma and flavor of this tea. It mixes well with Oolongs and black teas that I have in my cupboard. This morning I added it to English Breakfast and threw in a few french roast beans and made a nice coffee tea. It’s very reasonably priced too and adds a nice variety to my tea cupboard.
Got this the other day going through the drive through and I thought it was delicious the first time I had it……this time not so much but it might be that it was too strong?? But it tasted kinda nasty to me.
