Recent Tasting Notes
Warming, soothing, rich aroma, full of spices (mainly cinnamon and nutmeg), the base green tea in the background.
But in taste the base tea is in the front, nicely complimented by background spices. The overall impression is very balanced, like almost all the Gemi teas.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Freshly Cut Grass, Nutmeg, Spices
Coconut and vanilla prove to be a great combo. They are quite balanced in aroma and they don’t dominate the base green tea completely.
The taste is rather dry, with green tea in the front and coconut and vanilla in the background.
Good one, not overdone, very balanced and showcasing the tea, not the adjuncts.
Flavors: Coconut, Freshly Cut Grass, Vanilla
Very balanced aroma, the peppermint is quite strong but not dominant, the base green tea is sufficiently evident.
And it’s also evident in taste, which is very rich. The peppermint is not too strong, but certainly not pushed to background either.
Nice, refreshing combinations using high quality base tea.
Flavors: Peppermint, Straw
Strong, sweet apple aroma, a bit of cardamom and traces of base green tea.
In taste the base tea is fortunately dominant, the cardamom is quite evident, the apple subtle and in the background. There is no sweetness at all.
Well ballanced, warming, solid tea.
Flavors: Apple, Cardamon, Grass, Sweet
Equally strong vanilla and strawberry notes, very warming aroma, slight nots of base white tea in the background. Very balanced smell.
Curiously, the base tea is dominant in taste. Vanilla and strawberry notes are in the background, rather subdued, but still prsent and nicely complementing the base.
Nice, warming, well balanced tea.
Flavors: Grass, Strawberry, Vanilla
The smell is mainly honey with base white tea. The lemon component is very subtle.
The taste is a bit surprising, because it’s the white tea that mainly stands out. The honey is subtle, and the lemon subtler still.
Good as an autumn/winter warmer, but rather misleading, because the amount of lemon in smell and taste is very low.
Flavors: Grass, Honey, Lemon, Winter Honey
Moderately strong aroma, very balanced. The mint doesn’t dominate, seems equally potent as the warming orange. But that’s not all – the overall aroma brings spring meadow to mind.
The taste is also balanced, with solid notes of the base white tea, slight warming orange and refreshing mint. Good, but I prefer mint on it’s own or in Moroccan way.
Flavors: Flowers, Freshly Cut Grass, Grass, Mint, Orange
Very strong peach aroma, but it doesn’t completely dominate the background white tea notes.
Very good taste. The base white tea is of high quality, with fresh, grassy notes, complimented by assertive peach flavours.
The tea is very refreshing and warming.

Steepster Traveling Teabox Tea
I like rooibos, and usually find it a strong woody sweet flavor. This one surprised me by being so meek and mild.
Although I am amused and happy I got to try a tea from Denmark, I won’t be trying to get my hands on this one again.
Post-Steep Additives: none
