I nabbed a couple of these teabags from an ancient teabox… so really this is not a fair note for a tea that is YEARS old. Also, their teabag packaging is simply a paper that is folded over with an open flap so there is NO WAY this can stay fresh. But I liked this! A decent green tea that sometimes tasted like there was matcha in the teabag and also still a remainder of sweet pineapple flavoring. I wouldn’t mind having this around but their packaging needs improvement.
Steep #1 // 40 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
My general opinion of Touch Organic Teas is that they are, snitching a word from Bill McNeil of WNYX (you had to be around in the 90’s), adaquatulent. Not very strong, any of them, but neither are they finicky. And because I am just too weary to lift the bag out of the cup, this one has stayed in mine for a good 10-12 minutes now without being bitter, and proving its apricot-i-ness nicely.
It has adaquacifity.
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!
Christmas gift from Caleb.
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!
Flavors: Bittersweet, Mango, Peach, Spinach, Tea
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
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.
Flavors: Artificial, Candy, Chalk, Floral, Grass, Perfume, Strawberry, Sweet
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.
Flavors: Green, Vanilla
