Spoilt myself for my birthday! The taste wasn’t as strong as the smell, which was too bad. Very mild.

I know I usually only have one tasting note per tea, but I can’t help it! I love this tea! I started my morning with it yesterday (steeped for 30 seconds, as planned) and I had an AMAZING day! And it was a Monday! I swear, this tea put me in a fantastic mood. I’m repeating the experiment today, and so far, sucess!

A friend gave me a packet of this tea, and the label doesn’t have the company name on it. It’s delicious! Lovely colour, great flavour (neither sweet nor bitter). The label said to steep it for 3-5 minutes, but the only place I found it online said to steep it for 30 seconds. I’ll try 30 seconds next time, and see how re-steeping the leaves goes.

I wasn’t sure whether or not this was a black tea until I looked it up. (The label on the jar at the coffee shop didn’t say!) It was mild, like Darjeeling, but not as flowery. Pleasant.

Not too sweet, which is a nice change from the other bagged chai I’ve been drinking lately.

I can’t stand the taste of this tea, but I want to drink it for its health benefits. I’ve tried combining it with orange spice herbal tea, peppermint tea, and mint medly … Any other suggestions?

I have some grenadine syrup that adds some nice pomegranity flavor; wonder if that would cover up whatever it is that you don’t care for….

I hadn’t even thought of adding anything as powerful as that, but that should work! Thanks.

what sort of flavors do u tend to like? I like like it b/c it doesn’t taste like chamomile to me which i can’t take at all unless it has something added to it.

For herbals I really like peppermint, but I don’t drink a lot of herbal in the first place.

drank Peppermint by Bigelow

I love ripping open the little individually wrappted packages and getting hit in the face with the delicoius sweet smell of peppermint. I’ve used this tea as a base for drinking chocolate, which was fantastic. I’ve also combined it with gunpowder green for an improvised Moroccan mint.

This is my daily sencha. I quite enjoy it, as it’s nice and sweet when brewed properly. I’m always suprised by how much the leaves expand in the pot.

Very mediocre. I couldn’t get my regular sencha today, so this had to do, but it’s really unspectacular.

The only herbal tea I can drink to fool myself into thinking that I’m drinking something caffeinated. I combine it with a bag of black if I’m out of spiced chai, and it’s not bad.

Profile

Bio

I’m at the point where my family, friends and coworkers ask me for tea advice. It’s awesome, but I still feel as though I’m just getting started.

I love tea, have a small ball-joint doll collection, am fascinated by Japanese culture and faerie folklore, and wish I could travel much more often. I have two daughters, a husband, and three cats. I wish I had more time for all the things I want to learn and do.

I use Steepster to log each tea I try only once, so I may not update that often, but I drink several kinds of tea several times daily!
