Made a pitcher of this iced today. I really enjoy the minty flavour cold. Refreshing!

This is a nice, light green tea with a light mint taste. I quite like it. I find it soothing and refreshing. I drink a lot of green tea but sometimes I get bored with it so I like to change it up by drinking a green tea that has another flavour added. I find any tea with mint added, helps settle my stomach if I’m having tummy issues.

Flavors: Green, Mint

Sipdown! Made a pitcher of this iced. Used up the last of it. Time to move on to a new green tea!

Raising my rating on this a little, the jasmine seems to be agreeing with me better lately.

Not my favourite green tea. I find it a little pungent and bitter. I don’t hate it and still drink it on occasion but there are better ones out there. I prefer my green tea on the mild side and this one is stronger so if that’s what you prefer then you might like it. Aside from the strong green tea taste, it also has a strong jasmine flavour which I don’t care for. I’m not caring much for jasmine these days. If you like your tea bold, you may want to give this a try but if you’re like me (a tea wimp) then I would give this one a pass. (Since others have said that for them this tea is light flavoured, I should mention that I drink it with the tea bag left in so maybe that’s why it seems so strong to me.)

Silvia’s choice at the Julian tea cottage.

Yuck! Disgusting, putrid, vile, utter crap. Horrible stuff. Ugh…. Tatses like hot medicine. It’s probably very good for someone who likes fruit teas, I’m not that person.

Nice little genmaitcha, but nothing to set it apart from others. It’s your basic toasty rice green tea, good for anytime any day.

This raw blend smells very fruity but sour, orange being dominant and waxy. Also has some sweetness to it but the overall scent is very perfumed.

Flavour is very mild compared to it’s raw scent. There is a light herbal taste which is mostly like chamomile ie floral herbal but the after taste is definitely fruity. Orange is light with sweet and sour tones, more satsuma than orange really. The cranberry is mild but it gives the orange more sour notes. It tastes like a fruit flavoured water that’s been left in the sun for too long.

It’s an average fruit/herbal blend but not something I would stock.

Flavors: Orange Zest

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

drank Rooibos Masala Chai by Davidson's

This was a pretty good chai rooibos. I think the ginger was a touch too strong in this one, because I, like MissB, experienced some slight scratchy throat feeling, and I think that its from too much ginger. I sweetened it and added a dash of milk which helped mellow ginger a bit. Over all, and enjoyable cup, but I probably wont be repurchasing.
Thanks MissB for the sample!

Backlog:

A friend sent me this tea as part of a holiday gift.

Meh … this is alright, but as far as chai blends go, it’s a little on the underwhelming side. There is a flavorful black tea base, but I found the spices to be a little lacking. It’s not really spicy, and while I’ve enjoyed many chai blends that I wouldn’t consider “spicy” or hot … I feel like this blend sort of misses the mark a little. I think it needs some ginger.

I do like the licorice-y snap to this, though. It’s got a nice warmth to it, I just want that peppery kick from the ginger, and I feel like this blend suffers because of the lack of ginger.
