I thought this was just a plain green when i purchaed it. The loose leaf bag says “Organic Green” on it. I quickly realized there was more going on. You can really taste the gingko. If you haven’t had straight gingko tea before this might be an unusual herbal flavour. I consider this more of a herbal blend than a green tea. It looks like half lemongrass and gingko and half green tea.

drank Bali by Dammann Freres

Similar to L’Oriental by Damman Freres. Less peach and more floral. Fruity, fresh and exotic. Sounds like Bali right?

I love it but not likely a daily drinker for me. I continue the quest for the perfect green tea…

Floral peach! Thats what this tea is to me. Not much grassiness picked up. Might be a bit too peachy for an ever day tea for me.

I brewed using tea bags.

drank Strawberry Green Tea by Kusmi Tea
14 tasting notes

Strawberry/Fruity green tea is my favourite. Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf makes my all time favourite (previously reviewed) but they no longer ship to Canada. At all. I couldn’t even ship some to my sister in laws in the States as i needed to order with an American credit card…

Anyway, i read the hype about Kusmi and decided that this tea was the best alternative and i NEEDED it.

I wanted to love this tea so much but to me it tastes like kitchen spices… As if someone accidentally added basil…or its been sitting in a spice cupboard beside curry powder. I’m on cup three…but it just isnt my thing.

Maybe i’m not refined enough :) i like my big American sized tea bags with lots of flavouring and perfume…ha!

drank Earl Grey Supreme by Harney & Sons
14 tasting notes

This tea is super smooth. The smoothest Earl Grey i have tried. It doesnt take like tea and bergamot, the flaourbtravels together.

I got this as a sample in a Harney order. I may need more.

A great basic. Sometimes the flavoured black teas by Harney are too overpowering.

Flavors: Bergamot, Cream

drank Tower of London by Harney & Sons
14 tasting notes

Another Harney review for me, im on a kick. This tea definitely goes in the Paris, Victorian London Fog grouping. Paris is a bit more floral, Tower of London is sweet and caramel and to me Victorian London Fog is vanilla. All heavily fragranced and flavoured and im into that right now. Glugs of Silk coconut. 2pm in my office with a square of dark chocolate… basically daily.

I love this tea. More flavourful than a basic earl grey, not as perfumey as Harneys Paris. The lavender cleans it up a bit without being cloying. I love it. One of my favs. I make it with lots of shaken foamed milk. My perfect afternoon treat.

drank Chamomile by Harney & Sons

Basic chamomile. I prefer some of the organic brands that are more floral.

I got this as a Christmas gift from my sister in law while we were in Hawaii. Tropical but more savory than Mighty Leafs tropical green tea. I like a strong bitter green and i found this too soft with coconut and lemon grass.

Certainly an interesting and unique green blend. Reminds me of mango coconut sticky rice.

drank Blueberry Green by Harney & Sons

Not my favourite green, either the blueberry flavour or the lemongrass, i cant decide. Somedays its okay but not a daily drinker. Too weak and fruity…i prefer strong and floral. Would be great if you liked a mellow fruity green tea.
