drank Reishi Detox by Choice Organic Teas
542 tasting notes

Pilfered from the shared kitchen stash. 2 bags to 16oz boiling water, steeped for a long time.

Sweet cocoa-carob-vanilla caramel-cinnamon aroma. Same in taste. Velvety smooth, sweet without having sweeteners, fresh herbs and spices. The cinnamon was warming but never biting. Great body for an herbal chai-type blend (lots of ingredients!) with a clean mouthfeel.

I had another Choice Organic Teas reishi mushroom (matcha green) teabag a few weeks ago that was disgusting and tasted like burnt dirt despite being fresh. This was not that. Very very good blend.

Yesterday’s lesson that bled into today: Clean your grill’s grease pan!

Flavors: Caramel, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Mineral, Smooth, Spices, Sweet, Vanilla

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 16 OZ / 473 ML

This sounds like it’s worth hunting down. Choice also has a pretty good bagged kukicha when you need convenience.

Always up for a trade. I keep an updated cupboard. Check it out. Don’t be shy — message me if you want to try something! I send international :)

Most enjoyment:

Wuyi and Taiwanese oolong, sheng puerh, Yunnan and Wuyi blacks, GABA oolong. I also appreciate Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Darjeeling and Nepali teas, bagged tea and herbal teas/tisanes.

I take my teas without milks or sweeteners except sometimes chai and the rare London Fog, matcha latte and golden milk.

I’ll try anything once because it helps me learn. Not opposed to well placed herbs, flowers, fruity bits and flavorings, just nothing cloying. And no added sugars, sweeteners, candy or chocolate.

I abandoned both my preference reference and the recording of detailed steeping parameters in January 2020, favoring a focus on qualitative descriptions. At this point, I am still comfortable toggling the “Not/Recommended” button.

Preference reference:

100-90: A tea I can lose myself into. Something about it makes me slow down and appreciate not only the tea but all of life or a moment in time. If it’s a bagged or herbal tea, it’s of standout quality in comparison to similar items.
89-80: Fits my profile well enough to buy again. Some could be daily drinker teas.
79-70: Not a preferred tea. I might buy more or try a different harvest. Would gladly have a cup if offered.
69-60: Not necessarily a bad tea but one that I won’t buy again. Would have a cup if offered.
59-1: Lacking several elements, strangely clunky, possess off flavors/aroma/texture or something about it makes me not want to finish.
Unrated: Haven’t made up my mind or some other reason. If it’s puerh, I likely think it needs more age.
