From the last teabox! One of those fun teabox finds — I’d never heard of this. I thought this was blueberry flavored matcha in a teabag but it is mostly small bits of green tea in the teabag. I’d say it surprisingly tasted like matcha anyway, with enough wisping around in the mug. It ALSO tasted of blueberry, so that’s nice. Sometimes it’s important just to note that a tea is actually tasting like it’s supposed to. I liked it!
This was pleasant surprise.
I took this tea bag with same thoughts about last ones. It won’t be tasty, it will be maybe very spicy, it will be hardly any good tea base.
NONE OF ABOVE
I used even warmer water than they recommend. On the bag is 100°C, I used 90°C, they have on website 75-80°C.
Hardly any matcha? Well, it is in paper bag and some green tea dust is actually going off the bag. So, some matcha is apparently in. It was very spice present too, when dry.
I put the bag in the cup, let it in for minute and half (yes, that short — mostly because of higher temperature and I did not wanted too strong, buttery cuppa)
It was mostly cloves I noticed, but as well ginger and bit of cinnamon. The base was present too! Especially it was quite grassy and not buttery at all. There was little dust of matcha on the bottom, so I was whisking the cup with a teaspoon.
I won’t classify it as a matcha actually. But as green tea with chai? Pleasant surprise!
On the other news:
My granma is going home today afternoon. Actually in the time I am writing this line, she will be in our car and my brother drives home!
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Ginger, Grass
I took this tea, as it is green and hopefully refreshing. Turns out quite buttery, not much grassy, green tea with little blueberry flavour. Blueberry is rather in aroma than in taste, taste is not winning too – it is just common, green tea with little blueberries. But when dry, it was really strong of blueberries. Sad story.
I am rather disappointed by this matcha-series, teas are okay only. The fruit notes are like “let’s call it fruity, but do not add any fruits in”
Flavors: Blueberry, Green, Tea
“All the natural ingredients have been carefully blended to help you relax, unwind and enjoy a godd night’s sleep”
I hope it will work that way. I don´t know how long the steep was. Maybe 4 minutes? It is 10 pm, it is late :D and it is my first tea today.
Today I do not think that camomile is overpowering all the taste. I notice lemon grass and nutmeg (the spicy note).
But it is so hot today, tea is not really cooling down. But I want to drink it before sleeping.
By the way, I passed another exam today and tomorrow another goes. I am getting bit crazy to be honest. I have no time for preparation, I don’ t even want to study for it.
Sad, so sad.
Yep, chamomile is not so strong today. I notice chamomile base but ginseng and nutmeg making it nice. I mean, it tastes like someting but just a a camomile. Good sign! Still too hot to sip.
Okay, now it is good temperature now. It is like a camomile with little spicy aftertaste. The spicy part is not very noticable though, but it is not so plain. Upping a rating a pinch.
I bought this months ago because it was cheap and I liked the tin. I haven’t yet been able to brew it, as I can’t get past the artificial smell. It’s supposed to be a blend of rose + cantaloupe, and you can definitely smell them. But it’s so overpoweringly artificial… it gives me a headache. I have TONS of it! EEK!!
