Don’t have a lot to say. Gunpowder green base tea. Peppermint and peppered green bean aroma, tastes strongly of cooked green beans and spearmint. Salty-tart, a faint smokiness that blends very well, light non-penetrating bitterness, some astringency. Warming in the ears, cooling in the chest with minty burps. Second steep is too astringent. Might play with timing for the rest of my sample.
Of note, I bought this bulk. This is ‘Moroccan Mint Green.’ Choice Organic Teas also makes a bagged version called ‘Green Moroccan Mint’ which has the same ingredients as this tea plus lemongrass.
(Western, 3g, 8oz, 190F, 3/4m)
For those of you whose tea choices are seasonally driven, this is a nice transitional summer-to-fall option (it was foggy and 72 most of the morning—yum!). It is roasty-toasty, woodsy, and sweet. Good on ice as well.
I love the notion of using all the scraps of a tea plant to make something tasty. My mom was a quilter and saved scraps; I do the same with remnants of my paper crafting projects—and quite often, the pieced-together leftover is just as pleasing as the original. That applies to this humble little kukicha as well.
It is right to thank God for Choice Organic Teas, because they always offer such great variety of tea brands and I have always had a good experience to share with, here on Steepster.com.
This tea is beyond words can explain. It has a sweet-mint flavor. So good! I believe that anyone can benefit from drinking this tea because it is delicious!
Thank you for reading, and enjoy steeping.
Bye, and God bless you! :)
This is my first hibiscus tea drink and I am surprised by how tasty this is!!
I am so happy. I like drinking this.
I think that you can most definitely benefit from a sweetener when drinking this tea (because it tastes just like cranberry juice which is tart). Nevertheless, the steeping is 5-10 minutes. Hope you enjoy and find yourself richly blessed by the Lord Jesus Christ; May He show you increase favor as you try new flavors :) Amen, in Jesus precious name.
God bless you.
I like this tea.
The smell is unique…
The color and taste is also pretty special as well. There is a sweet aftertaste to every sip, and the turmeric blend is very gentle. The tea looks orange because of the turmeric blend.
I do recommend that you taste this kind and decide for yourself because the cooling ashwagandha truly is a wonderful ingredient included.
This tea is a delight and in its purest form a must-have for anyone who seriously needs some relief from a stressful day.
I recently purchased this tea, and truly, the best. It has wonderful properties for the mind, body and soul. I personally enjoy steeping this. A great overall experience as a consumer.
The tea smells and tastes mostly like green tea (matcha).
If you are concerned about the mushroom taste, it is very soft. This tea contains caffeine due to the green tea, so it does a lift for the body. The steeping time is 5-10 minutes recommended, and each bag contains 16 total tea bags.
My first brew of 190 degrees for 5 minutes created a slightly bitter oolong whereas my second brew I opted, again, for 190 degrees but shortened the steep time to 3 minutes and experienced no bitterness.
Smell-wise, I picked up hints of cinnamon and herbs in scent but the taste was a straight forward oolong tea.
This is a tea I feel stands on its own or as the base to a flavored brew. Also, I did not find the need to add any sweeteners or milk to make it drinkable. Overall I was pleased with it and would drink it again.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Herbs
Had some of this at a vegan shop in Canada, and it was not bad after two boiling minutes. The 12 oz was a good serving size, and it was a usual malty black tea with a little bit of nutty and floral nuance. I can see the muscatel thing people talk about it, but that is expected from a black tea. Serviceable indeed.
Wonderful for relaxation before bedtime. Bergamot is known to improve sleep quality— I was not let down when I woke up the next morning! It could be just the placebo effect, but I’m also biased in how much I love tea and enjoy knowing and feeling the benefits of tea. Side note: very soothing with a bit of milk mixed in.
Flavors: Citrusy, Spearmint
This is exactly what I am imagine liquified blackberries would taste like. Excellent hot or iced. It toes the line of being too tart, but never crosses it. There is a ripe sweetness to it and I find that when I add honey, it becomes too sweet and tame. Perfect just the way it is!
Flavors: Blackberry, Fruity, Jam, Tart
If you are looking for a smokey tea this is a good one to try. They did a good job with this Yunnan-Lapsong blend ratio… straight Lapsong is too smokey for me and the Yunnan pulls it down to a point of acceptability while maintaining the richness and character, minus the too-intense smokey bite. Its still a very smokey tea and needs to be stored away from others.
Compared to Samovar’s Russian Blend it is smoother and richer, with higher and more diverse flavor notes. The samovar is more of a frank, charred smoke, while this one is more of a burnt/roasted cedar. Both have a background sweetness which is a great component. They are both very good teas if you enjoy smokiness. I drink both of them straight. For the money, and the organic aspect, I’d go with this one.
