drank Strawberry Slender by Teavana
98 tasting notes

Aroma: Strawberry, sweet
Liquor Color: Dark amber
Liquor Flavor: Creamy strawberry
Notes: I didn’t taste the pu’erh but I can’t say I ‘m a fan of pu’erh yet so it’s a good thing. Very creamy, very strawberry. I would classify this as a dessert tea. I enjoyed it, the strawberry didn’t taste artificial. I think this would be good with a splash of cream to make it extra indulgent.

drank Bangkok Blend by Harney & Sons
98 tasting notes

Aroma: Coconut, lemongrass
Liquor Color: Pale green
Liquor Flavor: Coconut, lemongrass, cream, light ginger
Notes: I can’t say I was a fan, I guess I don’t like the flavors enough on their own. It was smooth, and creamy and the flavors did blend together well. I did taste a strong vanilla flavor. I think that’s what put me off. My friend really liked it.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Aroma: Sweet berry
Liquor Color: Deep red
Liquor Flavor: Very tart, artificial raspberry
Notes: I bought this to make iced tea with, when I added sugar, it tasted like weird fruit juice. I made a raspberry simple syrup and that seemed to help but alone it’s very tart and doesn’t really taste like raspberries. Maybe if I mixed this with a plain black tea to make a raspberry iced tea it would be good.

Aroma: Fresh, sweet cantaloupe
Liquor Color: Emerald Green
Liquor Flavor: Mineral, savory, vegetal
Notes: This one was interesting. I had a hard time placing my finger on what I was tasting. It’s grassy and green but I got this fruity sweetness to it. It lingered in my mouth, kind of a mineral linger. I’m really having a hard time describing this. But I liked it in a strange way. Not usually something I would pick, but after having the sample, I enjoyed it.

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 0 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 3 OZ / 88 ML

Aroma: Deep, roasted, corn, brown rice
Liquor color: Light amber
Liquor Flavor: No bitterness, roasted flavor, rice, corn sweetness
Notes: This reminded me of genmaicha, the leaves looked like little pieces of bark. It was very smooth but rich. I still prefer genmaicha over this but it was a pretty good alternative.

Preparation
Boiling 0 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 4 OZ / 118 ML

Aroma: Fresh, grass, vibrant
Liquor Color: Bright green
Liquor Flavor: Bright, very clean, light astringency, mineral, very crisp with an underlying sweetness.

Aroma: Roasted nuttiness
Liquor Color: Bright green
Liquor Flavor: Roasted, nutty, warm smooth, rich with a sweet base
Notes: Yummy! Full flavored, I really enjoyed this. The popped rice is so delicious, making this a comfort tea. I could see this paring well with a chilly autumn night. The matcha adds a slight sweetness which I really enjoyed. I will be ordering this again.

Preparation

Aroma: Sweet grass
Liquor Color: Deep yellowish green
*Liquor Flavor:
Crisp grassiness, refreshing with a light sweetness
Notes: Bitterness is not something that’s a bad bitter in this tea. The sweetness is well balanced. I would not use the word bitter to describe this but instead, crisp. I think this would be a delicious energizing iced tea for the summer after a workout. I’m pretty new to Japanese greens but this one was pretty good.

Aroma: Fruity, tart
Liquor Color: Reddish
Liquor Flavor: Sweet, tart, fruity
Notes: This tea is very good in an iced form. It’s refreshing, tart, fruity sweet. Hot, it’s very tropical so I think I’d prefer it cold. The base is really nice, smooth and light. Nothing was over powering.

Bio

My love of tea began with a quest to find the best bubble tea. After some research I found an Asian inspired tea shop that happened to serve amazing bubble tea, as well as loose tea. I was really new to loose tea but my friend ordered jasmine pearl tea. Once I took a sip, I was hooked! Tea soon became my new passion.
