drank Honey Ginseng by The Republic of Tea
176 tasting notes

I got this yesterday as a free sample inside my ROT catalog. I figured a green would be a little gentler on my stomach (which still bothers me every day, which is why I haven’t been having much tea lately. I’ve made an appointment to find out if I have another stomach ulcer). Plus when I first started drinking tea, I didn’t like greens because of the grassiness. But I’ve seen my palate develop over these past few months, so I’m giving it another go. I really do want to like green tea. You see, I feel like I’m missing out on a whole huge part of the tea world. It’s something I want to experience, so hopefully things will be different this time.

It smells of honey and flowers. I don’t smell any grassiness. This seems like it will a gentle, soothing tea.

Hooray! It tastes like I wanted it to; floral with a touch of honey. I don’t taste grassiness, accept for a teensy bit in the aftertaste, which doesn’t bother me. Maybe my palate isn’t bothered by it anymore, or maybe this just isn’t a very grassy green. I’m going to happily finish this cup. This was my first experience with ROT, and I have been left a very happy customer!

When I go to Panera, this is the tea I usually get. It is so good! :) Sometimes I add a little honey. Great review! I’m glad you found a green that you like!

I put this on my shopping list – thanks for the review! Oh, was there any hint of ginseng? Hope your stomach feels better soon!

@Lauren – To be honest, I don’t know what ginseng is supposed to taste like! So I’m not really able to answer that question… sorry!

Guess what? My very first RoT catalog came in the mail today with this as a sample! I’m going to try it out …!

Bio

I have recently been forcibly transplanted from Princeton, New Jersey to Burleson, Texas. I’ve been recovering from culture shock ever since. When I’m not dodging scorpions and pickup trucks, I’m a college student, drummer, lover of music and animals, Harry Potter freak, and a vegetarian. I just got a job at a bookstore, which is the perfect place for somebody like me.
