It’s cold, rainy, dreary and miserable here in Eugene, Oregon. And I am doing my best to fight off a possibly incoming cold. So, it’s time to cruise through the tea box in the cabinet.
I do’t remember buying this one, but here it is. I’m normally not into flavored teas or blends, but it’s nice to change it up now and again.
This is maybe one of the better Jasmine Green Teas I have had from a grocery store boxed tea bag. The Jasmine is front and center, but not overwhelming, you can still sense the base green tea, with it’s hints of wet grass and straw.
Pretty good, it’s definitely hitting the spot right now.
Flavors: Grass, Jasmine, Straw
Picked this tea up at a local Asian Market. I like to try the various teas the market sells and since I’m sick in bed I thought I’d give the tea a go due to its claim to help build chi.
The suggest brew is boiling water then steeping for 10-15 minutes. I opted to use 190 degree water steeping for 15 minutes. I was a little nervous, initially, that I would draw out a bitter flavor with that long of a steep, but there was none.
The aroma is very subtle, but I picked up on slight hints of herbs and licorice. The flavor, is, also, very subtle. While I caught a bit of herb and fruit, my palate couldn’t identify them specifically.
While the tea was subtle, I didn’t find the need to add milk or sugar to it which is nice as I’m not feeling well today.
I have so many subtle teas that I enjoy that I’m not sure I need more, so I’m not sure how often I would buy this, but it is one I would buy again.
Flavors: Fruity, Herbs, Licorice
Brewed 5 tea bags worth, loose, in 16 ounces boiled water for 3 minutes with stirring. (This amounts to only 5.9 grams of tea, so the mean weight per bag was only 1.18 grams, not 1.5 grams as on the label.) Dark red tea liquor. Tasted at room temperature: Strong black tea flavor with slight astringency. No perceptible rose flavor or aroma.
So, this is a tea I picked up at a fairly local Asian supermarket. I’d finished all the pu-erh, and I wanted to be sure we had some in the house. This met all the technical specifications and it came home with my wife and me. It’s fine, not like fine as in quality, but fine as in adequate. This is an adequate tea.
Expect a small tea bag wrapped in paper with some dusty flakes that smell a bit musty. After brewing this smells more like leather, although it tastes mild and sweetens comfortably.
I was at a friend’s house for game night last night and we were in the mood for tea. As the high tea snob of the party, I offered to make it, and soon found myself hunting through a box of tea bags. Some good stuff, mostly leftovers of teas bought long ago and quickly found to be not all that good.
I did find this gem, however, as well as a few other good ones in the mix.
Quick heads up: I have been trying a lot of different very high quality loose leaf teas, and it had been a while since I had anything other than the standard blends in a tea bag. Jasmine Green, Earl Grey, English and Irish Breakfast, etc.
But I am glad to say I was delightfully surprised by the quality and flavor of this little bag. Of course, it did not compare to the control, flexibility, and quality of a loose leaf, but it was actually very good.
Even the 2nd steeping was still full of flavor that had not yet been mashed and mixed to the point of bleh like many cheaper tea bags will do.
This is a tea I got from my Mother-in-Law. I wish she would just look at my Steepster wishlist instead of buying me whatever she comes across. I haven’t had good luck with her finds. This is an herbal blend that my cat was immediately interested in, probably because of the catnip. He started by sniffing the box and then began biting it. He even nipped my finger and batted at me when I tried to take it away from him! Little jerk. He’s really annoying me today. Every time I get up he steals my spot on the couch. Then he cries at me when I move him. *Sigh.
I really need a cup of something relaxing. I’ve not had a very good day. Tea usually makes it better but the last couple teas I’ve had have been disappointing. I’m not even sure I should really be drinking this one because some of these ingredients aren’t recommended during pregnancy. So I’m just going to have a couple sips so I can write a note about it and then I’m going to re-home the rest of the box.
This tastes to me like an herbal teabag usually does. The peppermint comes across as the strongest flavor then maybe the chamomile. I can’t say that I can detect each ingredient individually but I think they all contribute to the taste. Overall, it’s an unremarkable and inoffensive blend. I think others could enjoy this. It’s not bad at all, just not my cup of tea. Anyone interested in the rest?
I’ve never tried white tea before, so I was looking for a cheap way to see what it was like. I found this at a local organic store; unfortunately, they did not have any loose-leaf white, but this was only a couple of bucks, so I figured what the heck.
I like it ok, it definitely has a mild, sweet taste to it. I’m sure it gets better than this, but I don’t really have anything to compare it with at this point.
Definitely worth the cheap price, and now I want to try out what the good stuff is like…
A review of Green Tea (Beneficial Everyday Tea) by Triple Leaf Tea
Company: Triple Leaf Inc
Tea Name: Green Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: green
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: golden brown
Water Temp: 200
Time: 3 minutes
I steep this tea for less at first since it seems like it might be very strong/bitter. I place one tea bag into my cup and pour in the hot water and leave it to steep for a few minutes. Tea’s aroma is that of green tea and smells freshly of green leaves as well.
Water Temp: 200
Time: 5 minutes
This is a longer steep because I want more of the tea’s strength in my cup. Not that there was anything wrong with first cup of tea. This second cup of tea is darker in coloring and smell strongly with more astringency, the tea taste is strong. It is not as freshly clean as first cup. I think this is because the first cup of tea was lighter and therefore fresher.
I mean to say: the bitterer is the tea, the stronger is the tea’s strength and not as enjoyable if nothing is added to it. I prefer tea’s plain.
Overall tasting notes: In all, this tea has a pleasing mild and aromatic flavor and is less bitter if steep for shorter time.
Classification: Year, and region of production; Product of China
Cup’s characteristic: This tea is prepared from superior green tea leaves and one can taste and enjoy this aspect with every cup of tea, in tea bag form.
Liquor color: golden brown
Taste: mildly astringent and cleanly when steep for shorter duration.
A review of Slimming Special Herbal Tea by Triple Leaf
Company: Triple Leaf Brand
Tea Name: Slimming Special Herbal Tea
Tea Type/ Herbal
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes
Note: I like to have this tea (all my herbal teas strongly) so infusion is longest of steeping for 5 minutes or more and this makes the tea very dark in color and smelling strongly of herbals like the Senna leaf, dandelion, licorice root and persimmon leaf making this tea a sweeter brew.
I brew this tea so strongly and that it is darken-cloudy mush in my mug and when tasted, tea is very hot and good; I like how the persimmon and licorice play nicely together; this tea is wonderful because it has no bitterness at all.
As this was my ending cup of tea for the day, it was very welcoming cup of tea.
