Just finished a mug of this, which I sipped on while working on some podcast outlines for recording tomorrow. I struggled a lot with putting my thoughts about this geek into words, but I think this was a good tea to pick to work on this outline because it was soft, creamy and comforting with velvety lemon chiffon type of notes – nostalgic and pleasant to sip on without being complex enough to require attention, and that let me focus on the outline at hand.
I have had a lot of bagged jasmine green tea. When I lived in a university residence, stash Jasmine green tea was my go-to! I also like the instant honey Jasmine tea from the grocery store; it makes an excellent iced tea!
This is my first time trying a simple, loose leaf jasmine green tea. When I smelled it, the jasmine scent was lighter than I liked, but pleasant. I steeped this with boiling water (I think I might need to stop doing this to my green tea leaves! But I like my drinks to be super warm). And let it sit for 4 minutes .
The cool thing about these tea leaves is when I re-steeped them, they still tasted great! So you can have 1-3 cups of it without it significantly subduing the flavour.
My only problem with this tea was that the Jasmine was a bit too light for my taste. I wanted it to be brighter, and a more prominant note. However, this is a good light jasmine. I am going to try cold steeping this and making an iced tea instead.
I think this tea is growing on me… I think the key is to not steep it for longer than a minute, or else it becomes bitter. It steeps up to a vibrant light green – thanks to the matcha. It tastes like a strong green tea (with no bitterness when steeped correctly) and popped rice kernels.
Flavors: Grass, Toasted Rice
This is my second time trying genmaicha. My first time was Dessert by Deb’s Marshmallow Crispy Square which I did not like, mostly because of its strong coconut flavour. However, I was hopeful about this tea. It seemed like a simple enough blend – just premium Japanese tea leaves, matcha, leaf stems, and popped rice. It sounded delicious.
When I opened the bag, I noticed there was a lot of matcha (which I was happy about since I love matcha!). However, it also contained a good amount of popped rice and kabuse-cha (Japanese tea leaves).
I would recommend steeping this tea less. Maybe even just a minute. I find if I leave it for too long, then the flavour becomes too bitter, and takes away from the delicacy of the popped rice.
I am not sure how I feel about this blend? I might just not like genmaicha, and that is okay too. Matcha Genmaicha is great quality, but the flavour might just not be for me.
When I made this, I expected it to smell like popcorn, but it smelled like burnt rice as opposed to toasted rice. I am not sure if this is typical for genmaicha blends?
As far as taste goes, it tastes like bold green tea with a burnt rice aftertaste.
I think I need to keep trying genmaicha to confirm it is for me! However, next time, I think I will stick with buying a more traditional matcha blend.
Flavors: Burnt, Earth, Green, Rice
First, I love the Tea Haus. What a lovely small business and they have the most incredible customer service. :)
I tried the Kyoto Cherry Rose Organic again cold steeped today, and it brought out a perfume-y note, which I guess is from the rose. However, after I added some sugar, it subdued the note a bit.
Either way, I think I need to experiment with this tea more to make a firm consensus on it.
Flavors: Alcohol, Cherry, Rose
When I read the description of this tea on the website, I knew I had to have it! This seemed like a tea I would love – a green tea base with a rose floral profile. I LOVE jasmine green tea, so I wanted to give this one a try.
Okay, so I need to start by describing the smell. It smells floooral, almost like a rose perfume. I know for some people this might be off-putting, but again, I love floral blends, so I was excited to try this tea.
When I steeped this hot, it tasted good. Like a sencha green tea with rose notes (so it lives up to its namesake).
However, when this is cold steeped with ice and a tiny bit of sugar, it is magic! I love floral ice teas, so I enjoyed drinking this one cold.
This would be an awesome tea for Spring or Summer.
I could see myself making a huge pitcher of this as an iced tea. It is a beautiful and strong floral tea that truly tastes like a green rose tea.
Flavors: Floral, Green, Perfume, Rose
When I saw this online, it definitely got my interest. The ingredients list was very simple, and best of all, this was an herbal blend with no hibiscus! I do not mind hibiscus being in my tea, and I understand it gives tea a beautiful, vibrant colour. But often, it can be too tart for my liking.
I loved the smell of this tea! It reminded me of lemon grass! When steeped, I also thought it tasted okay. I think this is a tea I could see myself buying and mixing into other blends. On its own, its a bit weak, but I think paired with something else (like ginger, lemon grass etc.) it could be awesome!
Since the Tea Haus teas are so reasonably priced, I most likely will buy this agian just to do my own DIY blending.
Flavors: Apple, Lemon, Lemongrass
Mmm, having this now with some sugar and coconut-almond milk. It is a very good tea blend where all the flavours come through. You can taste the spice for sure and a slight hint of chocolate on the backend. I think this makes an excellent latte if you are looking for something special that you might not have tried before.
Flavors: Chocolate, Spicy
I am so glad I ordered this! It honestly tastes just like its namesake! When I smelled it, I got notes of chocolate and a bold, spicy note. I really enjoyed this tea! It definitely is spicy, but I love it. The chocolate compliments the spice really well. I have only made this with milk! I think that is the best way to drink this tea.
I would highly recommend getting a 25 gram bag of this just to try it! :)
Flavors: Chocolate, Spicy
I am so glad you can order 25 gram samples at the Tea Haus. So even if I dislike a tea, I know I can finish it rather quickly and it will not go to waste. And then later on, I can order larger sizes of whatever tea I enjoyed! :) They also have such a kind staff!
This smells like red rooibos with a hint of caramel. You can see tiny caramel pieces in this tea. Although the caramel to rooibos ratio is off. I think it has far too much rooibos, just looking at it visually.
I’m not sure if I got a bad scoop of this (since sometimes heavier pieces like caramel can fall to the bottom). However, this tea had no caramel flavour at all. It tasted mostly like a good, red rooibos tea.
The rooibos base is excellent and refreshing. But I gave this a lower rating because it did not live up to its namesake of being a caramel tea.
To improve this tea I would add more caramel flavouring and larger caramel chunks. That would balance out the ratio between the red rooibos vs. caramel
I think if you enjoy red rooibos, you will like this tea. But I prefer rooibos to be a very mild flavour in tea blends.
The smell of this shocked me. I could not believe something with no added flavourings or ingredients could smell THIS good. It smells exactly like honey, vanilla, and caramel candies! The aroma of this is absolutely… intoxicating!
I always love brewing oolong tea. Watching the leaves expand is such a treat. It tastes wonderful as well! Like a refreshing and simple oolong. I will be needing this in my cabinet at all times. I think it is a worthy purchase, and although this is expensive, you can request a free sample from the Tea Haus with your purchase, or buy this in a 25 gram size.
Flavors: Cream, Honey
Mmmm! This tea is SO amazing, but I think it requires a bit of extra love and attention! I usually steep it for like 5 minutes and then drink it. But today, I let it steep (unintentionally) for hours and when I had it – I loved it even more! When I steeped this for a long time, the apple note came through a lot stronger. It also had a slightly tart note (from the beets I am assuming). It tasted like the topping on an apple crumble. Yum!
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon
Yummy! Like others have said, this tastes just like forever nuts from David’s Tea, but it is half the price. It smells exactly like an apple cinnamon pie. I like this better hot than cold. When I drink this hot, it tastes predominantly of almonds, cinnamon, beets, and apples. With the most predominant flavours being almonds (and beets, if I steep it for too long!). Overall, I will definitely be repurchasing this again.
Flavors: Almond, Cinnamon, Red Apple
I brewed this on the stove! I boiled water, added a few bags of orange pekoe, sprinkled in the chai spice, sugar, and added some milk. This is a lovely blend! I particularly enjoy drinking masala chai, so I was looking forward to this! This is not like typical chai blends that I have tried, where the cinnamon is the most prominent note. This was tastes like corriander, and feels very warm.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Coriander
Finished this off plain and was quite good while still hot. I wrote this note a lot closer to when I drank it but apparently steepster never published it. I recall saying that I usually made this as a latte but plain allowed the “sweet” vanilla to come through a lot more clearly. I would definitely revisit this if I were ordering or shopping at The Tea Haus again but since I no longer live in London anymore, I don’t think that’ll be happening anytime soon.
I’ve been trying to drink this all day to no avail. I got sips here and there and it’s been good but the sips have been fleeting while I’ve been attending to other things. Now it’s 10:30 at night and I’m preparing for bed with half an iced latte of black tea that’s still ice cold thanks to the insulation of the tumbler. I likely won’t finish this which is a shame because I think this is the best way to have it. It’s really brought out the vanilla which is the “sweet” part of this sweet chai.
This steeped for more than 10 minutes and made a pretty terrible time lapse video but is surprisingly not bitter. It’s not amazing either, but its a fairly solid floral silver needles tea. With that said, I should not it’s not actually a white tea, it’s a green. Slightly corn-like. It’s fine but its a typical blooming tea: more for looks than taste.
