I enjoyed the light sweetness to the tea. I’d had multiple passion fruit bubble teas, but this was my first time trying a hot brewed passion fruit tea, and it was an enjoyable experience, though I did miss the litchi jelly I usually pair the cold versions with.

Flavors: Passion Fruits

Thank you Arby for the share. Unfortunately I do not get much more than rooibos from this. It is smooth land every now and again I think I get coconut but rooibos really is what stands out here. Still fun to try something new.

Hey I’m proud of myself! Under 2.5kg as well

VariaTEA

I spent most of the day cataloging my teas and weighing them and I have done about 2/3 – 3/4 of my cupboard and am around 2.8kg. Yay for a bunch of smaller size packets.

Now you guys need to subtract the weight of the bags :)

Sil

i already do that evol…and the weight of the tins.

VariaTEA

I did that too. I weighed the empty bag (or tins), zeroed out the scale and then weighed the tea. Honestly I was going to measure in perfect teaspoons since that would say exactly how many cups I had of each tea but that seemed like too much work.

You guys. Oh you guys.
I admire your devotion.

drank Green by Hawaiian Islands Tea Company
2447 tasting notes

This is a grocery store quality tea, so it isn’t the most amazing green. I picked this up because I love the coconut macadamia rooibos from this company, and I’m always up for Hawaiian grown teas. I’m not 100% sure this was tea grown in Hawaii, but it was packaged by the Hawaii Coffee Company and the back of the box has a map of the islands on it.

This brews up darker than most greens I have had. The dry leaf and brewed liquid smell very green. Vegetal, notes of seaweed and spinach. Slightly astringent in the aftertaste. A bit of umami. It tastes like any other grocery store bagged green (abeit, less awful that a few brands I have tried). I wouldn’t go out of my way to try this, but if you enjoy bagged green teas, you might want to try it if it is offered.

Flavors: Green, Seaweed, Spinach, Umami

Morning brew, hot and plain. No coconut, creamy (macadamia?), rum/alcohol, sweet rooibos, milk, brown sugar. It is a fantastic and unique herbal blend, but it doesn’t resemble its name.

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Creamy, Milk, Rooibos, Sweet

No ingredients listed anywhere on the package? Idk what is even in this. What I do know is that the herbal/rooibos base is very sweet and the flavouring is quite strong.

The rooibos base is rooibosy (brown sugar, molasses, hay, minerals), sweet, flavourful. There is a bit of creamy and nutty flavour, but mostly it tastes very strongly of alcohol, vanilla, white rum, and molasses. No coconut that I can taste.

Flavors: Alcohol, Brown Sugar, Cream, Creamy, Hay, Milk, Mineral, Molasses, Nutty, Rooibos, Rum

Like Maui Mango….makes fabulous unsweetened iced tea! It is also really good hot, but it reminds me of the excellent iced tea I had in Hawaii recently, with its fruity notes.

Flavors: Fruity, Passion Fruits, Tropical

I’m not a fan of bagged green teas, but I enjoy this tea. It has just the right touch of sweetness.
