19 Tasting Notes

It’s hard not to associate the taste of watermelon-flavoring with candy, and the smell of it with like, scented bath products. To be fair, I’m not the biggest fan of flavorings a lot of the time. I also haven’t tried it iced—I could see that working better. Maybe if the black tea was stronger, I’d enjoy it more, but the watermelon just smells and tastes overpowering.

This was one of the first teas I ever enjoyed and honestly, I still really love it. It’s sweet, but doesn’t taste sugary to me, and I always enjoy a good green/white blend. It doesn’t oversteep, so it’s easy to just throw a tea bag in a cup and not worry about it.

This is, hands down, one of the best teas I’ve ever drunk. The rose is so strong without overpowering the smooth black tea underneath. We try to always have some around.

This black tea has its own unique flavor to it — I thought chocolate, my friend thought puerh, regardless its a fantastic tea.

For those who are on the fence about Puerh, this one is really nice. The ginger adds a spicy note and cuts some of the funky taste the puerh.

Yellow tea is such a rare treat, but this one is definitely worth the price. It’s become my “special tea” — the tea to drink when I’m having a bad day, or definitely want a tea with a lot of caffeine in it.

Lemongrass, ginger, peppermint, and pepper are the strongest flavors in this tea. Great for a slightly spicy, warm non-caffeinated drink.

Light, fruity, and floral, and such a treat. One of my favorite senchas by far.

Bio

Writer/poet/zine-maker from the Pacific Northwest. My girlfriend calls me T, so you can imagine there are a lot of T/tea puns in this house.

My tea tastes tend to vary wildly — I go through tea “seasons” where I prefer one kind over another. I like interesting infusions, but I’m iffy on flavoring, and refuse milk and sugar.

Tea is best served on the porch, under the tree, or next to my typewriter, if it’s raining. And of course, it’s often raining.
