A nice hot cup for a cold crappy rainy day. The soothing earthy flavors of a green tea with the sweet perky pick me up of apricot :) Now I just wish I had some toast to go with this…
16 Tasting Notes
This tea has a lovely nose, full of gentle tartness from the lemon and spicey black pepper. On the palette even over-steeped it was never harsh, simply more potent. The flavors blend exceptionally well, a new favorite cuppa when my throat and sinuses are feeling sad.
This tea was EXACTLY what I was in the mood for. Something with a strong fruit overtone, but with the warmth and gentle spice of a ginger infusion. Unlike some other herbal blends I’ve sampled, even steeped for the full 5 minutes the ginger didn’t become overpowering. A perfect cup for those blustery fall and winter mornings, would be EXCELLENT with toast and jam :)

Oh god its so good! A great blend of one of my all time favorite teas. Very much like drinking down a bowl of popcorn ;)
Nice, smooth, tasty chai blend :)
Still loving it!
Wasn’t sure the first time, this tea is very steep-time sensitive. Don’t oversteep it or you lose the crisp pear notes and are left with a bit of a heady White Peony. Once steeped to the proper time it’s a great refreshing cup.
An instant classic. As with many of Zen Tara’s blends, the nose has a prominant ‘candy’ note, which mellows in steeping. There is still definitely an overtone of cherry jolly rancher, but it is subdued and blends gently into the white tea. An office favorite here at MetaSpring!
In the second steeping I’m feeling more of the smokey-peppery ness of the Oolong coming through, along with some of the floral on the finish. The first steeping I feel had more of the citrus. Overall a very smooth and satisfying cup.
As the description asserts, this is a perfect pairing. I had been excitedly anticipating my sampling of ZenTara Tea’s flavored white teas, and this one certainly lived up to my expectations. A full bodied, yet crisp tea, really showcases their blending abilities. The result offers varying levels of complexity, with a bright “orange pez” note being the most memorable. Can’t recommend this enough.
Love this tea, full bodied, a bit of lemony tang. The nose and lingering taste evoke salted lime tortilla chips. Definitely an essential part of my tea stash.
Better than I remember, nice solid coco base flavor, like a smooth dark chocolate with a smooth minty highlight. Not unlike Girl Scout Thin Mints :)
A nice smooth cup, the green smooths over the chai spices, while the spice add new depth to the green. A solid cup :)
I enjoy it, but it’s not my top choice. I’m not fond of Yunnan Jig either, so I think perhaps I’m just averse to the sometimes overpowering earthy flavor of Yunnan region teas? shrug
This is one of my new favorites, many layers of flavor to it- earthy black, smokey vanilla notes floating on top, with a nice floral finish from the rose.
