drank White Jasmine Tea by Ssangkye Tea
115 tasting notes

This is a light Jasmine tea; perhaps because it of the white tea leaves. Although I can’t taste the tea as much, I do detect some bitterness / astringency. Not as crisp and smooth as other Jasmine teas I’ve had but it is an okay tea.

Tart and a bit sour. Overall, this is a flavorful but boring tea. I can’t really taste the Black Tea at all, and the raspberry and hibiscus are lost somewhere in the tartness.

Overall, a mild tea. This has a subtle blueberry flavor that tempers the rooibos plant’s strong flavor.

drank Bellflower Tea by Ssangkye Tea

It has a subtle earthy flavor similar to the Burdock tea I previously reviewed; but not as intense. These medicinal / health teas are okay but definitely not delicious.

drank Peppermint Tea by Ssangkye Tea
115 tasting notes

Reminds me of the red and white candy. Cool and minty as the box claims; the sensation lingers on the palate for awhile. It is not overpowering but refreshing – I think this is a pretty good peppermint tea, even though I don’t usually drink mint teas.

drank Rooibos Tea by Ssangkye Tea
115 tasting notes

This is a bit smoother than other plain rooibos teas I’ve had. It still has that herbal flavor but it is subdued in this tea. I still prefer blends but if you like it plain, I think this is worth a try.

drank Roasting Sejak by Ssangkye Tea
115 tasting notes

A light, crisp green tea. Directions recommend 2 minutes steep time, so this may be the reason for the mild flavor. This might be great for people that want a milder green tea.

drank Chrysanthemum Tea by Ssangkye Tea
115 tasting notes

This tastes very floral as is typical of Chrysanthemum teas. Less intense and smoother than other Chrysanthemum teas so I’ve had in Korea so I think its possibly higher quality petals.

If you are drinking this for health reasons, I’d recommend trying this one as it does taste a bit better than other ones I’ve had.

drank Burdock Tea by Ssangkye Tea
115 tasting notes

This has a very strong earthy smell; reminds me of when it is raining in a forest but more intense. This carries over after steeping – has an earthy root flavor. It is being promoted as a health tea and it tastes like it. I am sure some people would enjoy the taste, but not quite what I would consider a refreshing drink. Taste wise, I would not recommend it.
