Recent Tasting Notes

This one is growing on me. It tolerates hotter water than more fancy-pants white teas, and as a matter of fact, the apricot is more evident when I steep right after the kettle boils.

This afternoon, I’m in need of cold drinks instead of warm and I dumped half a mug of this with half a mug of this morning’s Tazo Awake, iced down the whole thing, and it’s just plumb tasty. Ice tea with a twist of apricot.

Another clearance-shelf snag to take to work, but I tried a cup at home first. Not bad, but a little less fruity than anticipated—the white tea leads, for sure. Another review called it “grassy” and that’s a pretty good descriptor. Summery hay grass. I wasn’t giving it my full attention, so next try, I’ll try to ferret out the fruit!

Apricot is such a strong flavor, I am surprised it didn’t lead!

Maybe it is very lightly flavored, though. They might just want their white tea to shine with a hint of fruity sparkle. :)

I just had a cup. The apricot is definitely an afterthought, but it’s still a good low-caf afternooner.

Cold brewed this tea and i love it! the dry leaf is very bitter and artificial scented, but brewed it tastes delicious. Mango is present, but maybe peach and citrus as well? I like it!

I have the powder version of this that comes in the little tubes that you rip open and sprinkle into your mug.
Talk about green! Wow! What a vibrant colour when you add the water! A full-bodied tea with lots of grassy, vegetal flavour. I do not find it bitter at all.
Perfect for a hectic morning!

Flavors: Earthy, Grassy, Green, Vegetal

Delicious, slightly sweet. Refreshing, yet drying on the tongue. Would be interested to see if this would mix well with mango nectar.

Well now, it has certainly been a minute since I last logged in. I notice that I tend to come back to this site when I’m drinking new teas, and I tend to drink new teas when my life feels “good”, for lack of better word. Well, my windows are open, the air is cool, and fall seems to finally be here, and I feel in incredibly high spirits. So, here we are!

This tea is sweet and has hints of the pineapple, but isn’t overbearing. Overall, I would say this was a great way to enjoy the afternoon. Happy Fall everyone!

Another swap tea!

So I previously prepared this one cold-brewed, and it was pleasant enough. Grassy, as expected, but since I used cold water it wasn’t bitter. The strawberry flavor is extremely artificial, like eating some kind of cheap strawberry candy. There’s also an odd floral/perfumey note to it.

This time I’m drinking it as an iced latte, and it’s also pleasant. Again, I used cold water so no bitterness. The floral aspect of the flavoring is perhaps a touch less noticeable, but it’s still there. It tastes like a delicious artificial strawberries & cream milk tea, heh.

Not something I would ever buy (though 3 Leaf doesn’t offer strawberry matcha for some reason…) but I enjoyed the three sticks I had. Undoubtedly a cheap matcha, but since I drank it iced it didn’t matter much. I’m not in the habit of drinking flavored matcha hot, and I almost never make hot lattes either.

That reminds me that I have some of this somewhere in the back of my cupboard. I don’t recall how I felt about it.

This one is a survivor after months of office neglect. It is not elegant, fruity, or floral; just mildly toasty and not finicky. A keeper, at least for a while longer.

I’m not sure whence or whither this box came from … but I brought it to work for easy prep purposes. I didn’t use a timer, so I think I may have pulled the bag a little too soon, but it’s a very mild oolong that leans toward the sweet and roasty side. I see “roasted barley” in previous reviewers’ descriptions. From where I sip, that’s accurate.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this one. I love green tea but it’s vegetal and mixing that with vanilla sounded strange to me but I decided to give it a go. This comes in a little tube shaped packet that is filled with matcha powder which you rip open and sprinkle into your mug.
I poured my boiled water in and stirred. Waited for it to cool a bit and took a sip. Not bad! Not my favourite but definitely interesting. The vanilla is unmistakable. I still prefer my green tea plain or with a fruity flavour but it’s always good to shake up your regular fare with something a little outside of what you’re used to now and then.
I likely wouldn’t buy this one again but it’s a nice change of pace.

drank White Christmas by Touch Organic

This one contains some pleasant spices. It tastes cozy and wintery. There’s also some bitterness/drying that I expect comes from the base tea. My first sip of this was quite lovely, but subsequent sips were more medium. I still sort of like it. But it was a fun way to end the advent calendar!

drank Long Jing Green by Touch Organic

This one is pretty leafy tasting. I prefer my green teas to be more gentle, but this one bodly announces itself as a green tea. Not bad, but not really my thing. If you like your green teas tasting quite green, I’m sure you’d like this.

I wouldn’t call the flavor passionfruit necessarily, but it was fruity and tasty. The main flavor was the fruit. The tea just provided a light background. Not bad at all.

I don’t love the flavor here. The main flavor is the murky green tea. The lemon makes an appearance, but I didn’t notice much ginger at all. It was quite mild and muted.

The berry flavor is quite subtle. I really wish the flavor were more clear. It’s a bit hard to tell what it’s going for, and there’s some artificiality and dryness again. It seems that Touch Organic’s strong point is definitely its green teas.

This tea doesn’t taste like much. It’s mostly water with a bit of dryness and a tiny bit of bitterness at the end. You can’t really tell that it’s trying to be apricot. Maybe this would be better with more precise brewing methods.

This green tea was pretty light and delicate. Not super appealing, but a plain, calming brew.

Had some more advent calendar teas today. This tea is pretty weak to be considered a breakfast blend. It’s sort of tasty, but not nearly bold enough.

The mango flavor is pretty authentic here. I’d prefer it as an herbal as I don’t love the mix of the green tea with the fruit. I don’t think they mesh particularly well in this case. But I definitely wouldn’t mind an herbal using this mango flavor.

Not much to say about most of these teas, but I figured I’ll give at least brief reviews for all the advent calendar teas for future reference. This tea is much more gentle and sweet than I would have guessed. It was pretty light and enjoyable.

This is actually a better jasmine tea than most. I found this to be sweeter and more pleasant than others, no bitterness or strangeness. I still wouldn’t seek this out, but it’s decent.
