This is my add-on from their Holiday Kickstarter. I’m so happy to have this back in my stash. I did forget to stop at the 2 minute mark though.

This brews up as a very light liquid. This certainly is a grassy tea but in a tasty way.

I’m not 100% sure that this is the 2014 one but possibly as this was purchased from someone on here within a year or two. I do apologize that I cannot remember who this one is from, everything ends up in a ever growing bin labeled “try me!”.

This brewed up a light green-yellow. I did add sweetener which ended up bringing out almost a juicy texture/feel. This has a touch of grassy-ness to it and it’s dry. It makes for quite the enjoyable cup!

I usually shy away from unflavored black teas. This one isn’t your typical black tea. It’s calmer, if you will. There is some astringency but it’s not unpleasant. I also had sweetener ready to go but didn’t have to add it! I think I now know what “malty” is thanks to this tea. It is also quite smooth. Thanks for exposing me to this LiquidProust

Cwyn

I got a sample of this with an order. Didn’t have the strength of more southern climate teas, nor the longevity but fine for a couple of steeps.

drank Majestic Mango by Island Essence

Holidays TTB I can drink this one without sweetener. The mango is sort of a tease, darting around under the black tea taste. That black tea component is a little too much for my personal taste so I tried the addition of sweetener. It muted the black tea taste but didn’t do anything for the mango flavors.

Holidays TTB: I think the main flavor I get out of this is peony? followed by jasmine. It does have a mild astringency that dries the back of my throat a bit. This has a pleasant, very light, fruity flavor. Looking at the ingredients it is likely that it is currant that I am registering. This is different than anything I can remember having. It’s tasty and worth a look into purchasing.

Preparation
0 OZ / 0 ML
Liquid Proust

This would be a free add on to an order at this point. The only thing close to it to buy would be Silver Jasmine which is a bit different. What was the color of your brew?

Holidays TTB: this brews up very light in color and taste. I did add sweetener to this which brought out some more of the strawberry flavor. It’s quite smooth. This is not something that I could see myself purchasing for myself so I am thankful yet again for tea boxes :) Thanks guys!

Holidays TTB: Took the kettle off before it whistled for this. I can’t wait until my Tea Maker comes in later this week so I know that I’m using correct temperatures. I ended up adding some sweetener to this and it brought out an almost juicy flavor and texture. There is a bit of a grassy flavor and something else. My guess would be some sort of citrus or melon flavor?

Holidays TTB: I’ve been itching to get some more matcha and this TTB gives me the opportunity to try some from Red Leaf Teas! The box smelled of this when I first opened it as the bag had opened a bit. No worries, I will wipe everything down before re-packaging.

I was really excited to try this as Red Leaf is consistently rated high on this site. Sadly, I think there was some sort of user error this time around. It feels like the powder isn’t mixed in at all and it’s getting caught in my throat. It was made as a latte, anyone have suggestions?

Profile

Bio

After almost two years back in my hometown I have embarked on yet another adventure. I have moved, yet again. This time for a new job in a city. I can’t wait to see what is in store for me.

I am happy to have found Steepster. It gave me a hobby that I could devote as much or little time as I could during school and I believe that it will continue to help grow that hobby as I now have more time to explore.

I still consider myself newbie to the world of tea. I am still in the process of trying just about everything but have come across a few favorites. So far the only thing I don’t care for is coconut.

Ratings:

1-49: Never getting again. Couldn’t drink the cup.
50-59: Finished the cup, but won’t get again.
60-79: Buy once in a while.
80-89: Will get more as soon as I run out.
90-100: Must not run out.
