drank Golden Green by MEM Tea Imports
7 tasting notes

This tea is… fine. Just fine. It has a nice aroma thanks to the blend of ingredients, and the proportions make for a smooth, round drink with just a hint of herbaceous spice. I find that the taste is weakly medicinal on this brewing, but still tea-centered and quite drinkable. If you like herbaceous teas within the licorice and anise palate, you’ll probably find this one to be more enjoyable than I did. Supposedly there’s orange peel in this blend, but I don’t taste that at all. Perhaps with a longer steep time or with hotter water, more of those notes would come forwards, but right now I’m mostly just stuck in the lavender and herbs.

Flavors: Cedar, Herbaceous, Lavender, Licorice

About Me:
A tea enthusiast, and sometimes a cat on the internet. Currently revisiting some old favorites and sampling some new blends.

While I do like cream and sugar in some teas, I always taste teas without additives initially.

Personal Taste:
I try to taste as widely as I can, but I definitely play favorites with certain flavors. Floral, citrus, and berry flavors in full-bodied teas are the most appealing to me. Overwhelming spice and smoke notes are on the more difficult side, though I continue to try and broaden my horizons.

I don’t really have a strong system for numeric ratings beyond general gut feeling, so I try to write down my thoughts while they’re still fresh. Generally speaking, my words are going to speak louder than the numbers on each tea. Hopefully those thoughts will be useful to people.
