First let me say, my family has gone through about 4 huge bags of this tea! It comes in packets and you pour it in 12 oz mug or larger. It depends though, the smaller the container, the stronger the flavor. They are tiny yellow granules that melt into a yellow semi-frothy colored fluid. It is VERY strong ginger. It has that nice spicy bite to it and the hint of sweetness from the honey crystals. I definitely do not need to add any sugar. This is absolutely delicious, and helpful during those colds and sore throats!
Flavors: Ginger, Honey, Spices, Spicy, Sweet
I think this is an excellent tea for brewing up a half gallon and keeping in the fridge to serve cold. It’s really a nice tasting mellow oolong with that classic Wuyi Mountain mineral note aftertaste that originally got me into higher end teas. I brew this with slightly cooled off-the-boil water western style. I steep 5 tea bags for 5 mins in about 1/2 quart of water and then pour the hot tea liquor into a stream of cold tap water (we have excellent cold well water) to fill a 2 qt serving pitcher. I usually have mine sweetened with a bit of lemon at the time of each serving. The tea pairs well with just about anything, and is probably as good as you’re going to get with a bagged tea for an every day general purpose beverage. I paid $7 for 100 tea bags. Hard to beat it. I’ve seen some highly negative reviews for this tea, so maybe I got lucky and got a good batch, but my box of tea tastes nothing like the negative reviews. In fact, it is so good, I would love to have some friends over to blind taste test it, and I would bet money that they would rate it higher than some loose leaf.
Dark oolong that is amber in color and has a floral mineral aroma. Steeped two tea bags in 8 oz of water for three minutes. Decent cup of tea with a fruity, orange, floral flavor. I was looking for an oolong in tea bags for easy travel use and this tea fits that need.
Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Orange
A very unassuming, yet punchy green tea. This is the kind of tea you drink when you want simple, fresh, no fuss green tea without fumbling with loose leaves and strainers. While not the best, this is VERY good for the convenience and no fuss nature of its preparation. Each sip is flavorful and rich, just the way I like my green tea.
I must admit I find it funny that Prince of Peace Japanese Style Green tea is a product of China, or pretty much Chinese green tea that was made Japanese style. This one has a light fresh and sweet taste that is very enjoyable. If a drank green tea more often, I would seriously consider buying this one again. Which is a good thing as it was a box of 100 teabags which really hope I can finish while they are still fresh.
This is a somewhat decent teabag green tea. It is a medium green tea which is far from the lighter and sweeter greens that I prefer.. Makes a decent iced tea but don’t give my review too much weight as this is outside of my typical teas of interest.
When it comes to tea bags teas, once again Prince of Peace has proven to provide unusually high quality brew. The key to getting it to come out good is to use a smaller 6 oz cup and to brew for 4 minutes with boiling water. The result is a rich dark roast oolong that I would consider good enough to be an everyday Oolong for when you do not have the ability to focus enough to use a gaiwan.
Admittedly this is not the best tea out there. But it’s certainly drinkable and I’ve been chugging through boxes of this stuff since undergrad.
Today I’m sick. At least I think I’m sick – headache, stuffy/runny nose, sneezing and asthma going through the roof. But being so foggy headed this morning I woke up extremely late, and still thought it was a good idea to go into work. (Not so much a good idea, but I can’t miss a Tuesday! It’s my busiest day of the week!) I’ve got a box of this stuff in the car, for days I forget or am running so late I can’t even think of tea.
The taste is strong enough that I can still get a slight whiff of the green even though my nose is all clogged up. Usually I brew this 30sec-1min. Today I let it go a full 2min. This brought out a bit more astringency, but the tradeoff is actually being able to detect more than hot water when you’re sick.
I’m not going to touch the TTB I’ve got for a few more days at this rate, I don’t want to contaminate it. I’ve got nitrile gloves though, and if I can find a face mask I might be able to pack it up and ship it out.
I wanted to try this one because I was curious about what the Dong Quai(angelica sinensis) was going to taste like. I stumbled across a few things on the angelica sinensis a few years ago somehow while I was searching for info on Ginseng, I think it was called
Anyways I read up a little on it and tho it’s used mostly for female health it seemed to
have possibly a few benefits for anybody But I wondered what it tasted like and if was any good but I never bought any. From what I had read I had a preconceived notion in my head that it would taste not so bad perhaps similar to dandelion root.
I saw Cameron B’s Steepster post on this instant dong quai not long ago and I commented that I’d like to try this one and Cameron replied offering to send me a few yay!!
I wanted to try this one because I wondered about the taste of Dong Quai and because I do so love trying little instant tea packets like this for some reason. I’ll not lie I know that they may not all be very healthy and such with all the sugars and all but some of them just taste so good I can’t help myself anymore, when I see them I want to try them.
I didn’t always used to be like that with the instant packets but I sometimes now I binge on them, There is nothing wrong with indulging sometimes I think :)
Anyways this one is not bad at all, I like it tho it may be an acquired taste.
I was kinda right in my assumption that it would taste like dandelion, it Don’t taste like
it BUT the flavors are in the same field.
It has an herbal taste similar to burdock or dandelion that I love so
well with a peppery celery-like bitterness and it is VERY sweet honey taste, almost too sweet even with a slight taste of sticky dates.(the herbal bitter celery kinda kills the date some even tho it is very sweet).
It also has kinda of a roasty dark quality about it that makes it much more like a caffeine free Coffee Substitute rather than a Tea.
Did you ever get Verdant Tea’s TOTM with the blends???
They had blend one month called “Cask Strength” do you remember it? Did you like it?
If you liked it then you’d prolly like this instant packet of Dong Quai & Red Date, it don’t
taste the same but it is in the same neighborhood, minus the slight date taste of course.
I enjoyed this :)
Flavors: Bitter, Celery, Dates, Herbaceous, Honey
This was my wildcard purchase at Shang today. It sounded interesting and it was only $6.50 for a box of ten pouches, so I figured why not? I like dates. I have no idea what dong quai tastes like (apparently it’s the same thing as angelica root, but I don’t know what that tastes like either).
So I mixed a packet up in hot water while my sister was over for dinner, because we were both curious about it. I originally did 6 ounces, but bumped it up to 8 after the first taste. This is incredibly sweet stuff. I mean, it’s literally like drinking honey and molasses in water. I realize dates are sweet, but dayum! And apparently dong quai tastes like celery leaves, because there’s a very strong celery leaf flavor in here that doesn’t go well at all with the sweetness.
Overall, this is odd but not terrible. I’m not really sure I should give it a rating even… I wouldn’t even know where to begin with this one! :P
