4 Tasting Notes


A blend of China black tea and currants, this one has a very fruity aroma. Its totally delicious. The fruitiness is balanced and not overpowering. I dig. Would drink again for sure.

Flavors: Black Currant, Fruity

Lemon Herbal is a blend of lemongrass and lemon rind. This one is more bitter than sour, but unmistakably citrus. It tastes the way you would imagine lemon rind to taste. I’m huge on bitter teas, but I find this one such a stark contrast to the lemon herbal I’m used to (Lipton… not high quality, but I dig the red color and the body) that it was hard for me to enjoy. There isnt much body to this one, and that’s probably what kills it for me. If you prefer light bodied teas and citrus teas over fruity ones, you’ll probably enjoy this one!

Just picked this up from the package center. I really wanted to try the Watermelon Xylophone from Butiki, but paypal was down, and a Gen Y satisficer on a college budget, I turned to Amazon and found this from The Green Teahouse instead. It was eligible for a Prime add-on, and since I had already intended to purchase some Typhoo, I figured that this 1 oz pack would be perfect to try.

This tea is certainly better once it cools down, as you get a much better representation of the flavor notes. It is pleasantly sweet, and a lovely pink color. It is a bit too floral for me, and I think that is partially due to the beet root (I actually tasted a piece of the beet root to test this theory…), which contributes to the flavor. I may end up picking them out the next time I steep to see what happens. I ended up adding honey to the first and second steep, which made it just a bit more enjoyable.

The second steep was lighter, and I enjoyed it a bit more. I definitely want to try this one as an iced tea. I’ll update when I do!

Temperature Note: Brewed with my roommate’s Keurig K45 Elite, typical temp of 180 degrees.
