126 Tasting Notes


A co-worker got a couple of those subscription boxes, one that gives you food from around the world. This tea was in her France box. I was the happy recipient because she doesn’t like tea (I don’t hold that against her). :-)

Such a nice floral, especially for a cherry blossom tea because usually I can’t detect any cherry blossom. But this one had such a nice scent and flavor that lasted through many infusions, I was pleasantly surprised by this one!


Awesome! Maybe every box will contain some good tea!

Ashmanra, so far every box she has gotten has! Her Japan box had blueberry matcha! Score! :-)

I must have steeped this too much, which I normally end up doing with my tea anyway because I am easily distracted by shiny things. Good thing I like tannins! :-)

But oversteeped, this tastes like bitter melon, which I love, so I’m happy with that. I’m going to have to pay careful attention to this one to get it steeped right. Iced though, I could taste some different notes besides the bitter, although I’m not sure what yet. There is a fullness to it. I’m going to have to report back about this one after I coax some other flavors out of it!

I ran out of LS a long while back and I have been meaning to get more, but then I get distracted by shiny things and noises. So seriously, it’s been at least a couple of years without LS.

But now that I have it again, I remember that the smell is so soothing, and I get a big smile on my face, and I remember that I love this tea more than my children.

So sad that Zen Tara is closing, but happy I got this in my final order from them!!

Whenever I feel a good happy restful weekend coming on, I make a pot of this. You know, just to spoil myself even more. :-)

I’m having a little of this to try to get rid of a lingering cough. I know ginger is usually for stummys (and I have had a little of that too), but I thought the spice might help with my congestion.

This is sweeter than I remember, did they change the formula? Picking up much more licorice root than before, which might also be good for my throat.

Overall, I still enjoy it!

I don’t like roses. But since I have this sample, I thought I would give it a shot.

Smells like roses, even small rose petals in the tea. Tastes like it smells. Tried it hot and iced. Tastes the same.

I still don’t like roses. I’m sure this is good for people who like roses. The black base doesn’t overpower the floral, perhaps tones it down some, because I can only imagine if you steeped only rose petals, it would taste different than this. If someone loved roses, I would totally recommend this to them, and gladly hand them my cup! :-)

Nice mango flavor, not too strong. This ice tea pouch is huge, I have gotten two infusions out of it, I may try for a third!

I was hoping for a little more mate flavor, but alright. Tastes more like a lemon green.

Tastes more like a rooibos than a puerh, I think because the sweeter notes mask the earthy flavor the of the puerh, which I never imagined could happen! Still, a nice sweet flavor, coconutty, not tasting fennel. Sometimes I get a “wine” kind of note to it, like the assam cabernet tea I have, so like a nice red wine note. Good iced! It’s been a good tea to come home to and have a big glass iced, and it hasn’t been keeping me up at night. Almost like a dessert tea!

Hmm, I thought I had written a tasting note on this before…

Anyway, usually a good green to go to, medium dark, nice mild flavor.

But today, it surprised me, it was super roasty tasting today! Very nice!
