I am doing a lot backlogging today! HAPPY NEW YEAR :) My friends own a coffee shop and have the Harney bagged teas to offer and I’ve also had this in the royal palace sachets. I don’t excitedly reach for cinnamon but I like this tea. I have found that Harney & Sons have some great bagged teas when I hit a coffee shop and would rather go for tea than coffee. MMMMM Red Hots in a cup!
331 Tasting Notes
I found this tea for a dollar a box at a discount store. My regret is that I did not buy more! It has a nice buttery deliciousness that I’ve found in the greener Oolongs I’ve tried.
I’m in agreement here not the best or worst Oolong I’ve had. Kinda reminds me of what you get at a Chinese restaurant. If you put a bad of the Oolong and Dynasty’s Hojicha together you almost get the same taste as Dr.Tea’s coffee tea for a fraction of the cost and can take it almost anywhere.
Not such a bad tea in my opinion…incredibly cheap and has more of the “popcorn” flavor than a loose leaf Genmaicha that I bought….it’s good to have on hand at work when I don’t have steeping devices
Hands down one of my favorite teas. The aroma is just out of this world!! You can smell hints of cocoa, vanilla and a little nuttiness too. I agree that it doesn’t taste like coffee nor will it kick my love of coffee :) I like how it gives you a good kick in the morning. On of my favorite ways to have this tea is half mate and half Dr. Tea’s Imperial Pu-Erh…..Dark, Smooth, and oh so delicious! Mix with the Pu-Erh you can get a couple good steepings before it taste like flavored hot water.
This is one of the first teas that I ever experienced with Teavana. The aroma is intoxicating. I like the flavor but I think it can be tongue numbing. I like it but not as much as the My Morning Mate
When I saw that Teavana had a new batch of blends I decided it’s time to go in and look for Christmas gifts ;) I picked up some the Thai tea and all I can tell you is this tea is fabulous! The aroma is fantastic, the flavor is great too. The anise star is not overpowering. I threw a dash of almond milk in it and reminded me of a wonderful Christmas tea. Well done Teavana! Definitely one of my new favs!
I am in agreement here. A very tasty tea…..I’m not sure if TJ’s carries this one anymore but a good tea none the less.
I recieved a box of this in a “care package” my brother and sister-in-law made when my daughter was born. I will say that it is quite tasty and I’m not sure if TJ’s carries it any more but a good inexpensive black tea.
I bought a box of this obviously because it was very well priced. I am a coffee drinker so the fact that is strong a little bitter doesn’t bother so much. It is my first experience with an Irish breakfast tea. It’s not fabulous but not terrible either. It’s one that I would keep on hand for variety.
One of my favorite coffee shops in the area keeps this tea on hand. It’s quite tasty for a bagged tea. I think Harney & Sons have some of the best bagged teas I have tasted. A light aroma, pale liquor, a nice light grassy flavor. For an inexpensive high quality bagged sencha I would say this is a good option.
I love peppermint herbals and have for many years. I had this tea at Border’s in the sachets that Harney & Sons has in their Royal Palace line. I was meeting the woman who is going to be my wife for the first time. I was a little nervous and peppermint tisanes have always been good for me to calm my stomach and nerves. I guess this tea has a little sentimentality to it for me.
This tea was my first in buying loose leaf tea. I saw it in the grocery store….I had a tea strainer I got as a gift but had never used. It’s a great option for gunpowder teas. It’s got that light smokiness that you would expect from a gunpowder and at a great price too and you can find it almost anywhere.
This was my first experience with Pu-Erh. I got it not really knowing all that much about Pu-Erh. I like this blend I think the Pu-Erh flavor is a little weak and you don’t get that lovely earthy flavor as much. It is more fruity which if you are someone who hasn’t had Pu-Erh this is a great introduction. I would buy again.
I just finished my first can of this. I must say this is the best high quality matcha that I have had so far. I started off my matcha journey when I worked at Starbucks. I do love their matcha eventhough it’s highly sweetened. I do not have a matcha whisk but this mixes well with a mini steel whisk(egg beater). I will say the aroma at first was a little plastic like from the bag it came in, but the color is a nice pale green and tea is incredibly smooth. I got it on sale but it’s one of the more affordable matchas I have seen. I drank the last of my can this morning because I’ve been filling in on the morning show at the radio station and feeling great :)
Tried this at a coffee shop when I was visiting my fiance. I thought it was decent green tea. I didn’t notice the matcha in it as much but I like the idea that Republic of Tea had to combine green tea with matcha. I think it would be great for an inexpensive daily tea. I liked that I left the bag in my cup and it didn’t get bitter as green tea can.
I ordered this in the Oolong sampler from Dr. Tea. It has a very pleasant aroma. I am a coffee drinker as well so this intrigued me. When I tried it I couldn’t taste the oolong as much as I could taste the roasted Hojicha and vanilla shavings. It is good but I’m not sure if I would purchase it as a daily tea.
I love this tea! I purchased a bunch of it when it was on sale. The aroma is fantastic and the Tea is even better. It definitely reminds me of sipping a campfire in a good way. I’ve got a couple of friends….including pizzagirl ;) hooked on this and took it with me to family Christmas. I bonded with my father-in-law and his father-in-law over this tea. When my brother-in-law came to tell him something he paused and said “hang on I’m at Cook’s forest right now”. So I also have him hooked too. I have used it in many recipes in cooking including marrinating turkey in it for chili. I can’t wait to compare it to other lapsangs.
I ordered this tea awhile back and it is one of my favorites. It is on of the smoothest Pu-Erhs I have tried. I love how robust and full bodied this tea is. The liquor is very dark and almost looks like coffee. The earthy flavor is unique and tasty! I have found that tea is very good for an upset stomach too or over indulging in alcoholic beverages. I would recomend this tea to anyone. Definitely worth the price.
