Tasting set – 2.8 g tea in 150 ml water at 90 deg C, 6 minute steep.
Woderful bright golden liquor. Characteristic aroma and taste of Georgian hand made teas. Sweet, woody, citrus tastes. This one’s good for three steeps at 90 deg C tho I ofetn go for the full flavour at 100.

drank Chai Marsala by Teas.com.au
265 tasting notes

When I was growing up, my family drank tea and coffee, both with milk, about 50-50, but I only ever drank coffee. A few years ago, I gave up coffee almost completely and found white tea, and then green tea. I still don’t go in for black teas all that much, and I hardly ever drink tea with milk.

This tea is an exception. Steep in boiling water for at least five minutes, add milk and honey, and on days like today when the cold fingers of winter first reach out to touch us I don’t miss the flavoured lattes that used to be my favourite during the colder months.

No kidding — To me, the nuances of coffee in this rooibos-based tisane are more pronounced with milk and sugar than without. Very interesting. And besides, it tastes wonderful, helps with allergy problems, and won’t keep me up.

Trying a 2nd steep on these leaves, 3 min again. Very smooth and quite flavorful. I’m thinking white tea is underappreciated. It (or this one, at least) doesn’t tend to get bitter if not handled just so, yet it has a little piquancy — you just have to listen for it. =)

3rd steep, 3 min. I’m liking each successive steeping a bit more. This time there’s a hint of wood and sweetness, but not actually flowery. More flavor with less astringency. Smoother and richer, and finally, a thumb up.

Spearmint is my favorite kind of mint and I needed a relaxing tea to end my evening. Does it make me sleepy, no. But it sure does taste good!

Seems to me that the second cup is stronger, perhaps due to the longer steeping time as recommended on the site. Tasty as to be expected though.

A definite favorite, and probably the white tea I have the most. Drank some this evening while unwinding after work.

Blech. Smells strongly herbal and woodsy, and all I ever taste is sharp lemon. It came with a gift basket, and I just want to finish off the remaining bags. I don’t have it in me to toss tea out, even if it’s awful.

drank Vanilla Bean by Mighty Leaf Tea
1812 tasting notes

I bought this on a whim, initially finding the concept a bit strange, as Vanilla Bean was something I had always associated with coffee beverages. I found it a different and interesting experience, but overall a pleasurable drink. I was a bit disappointed by how few times I could re-steep, but this certainly did not detract from the novelty of this tea.

drank Masala Chai by Unknown
10 tasting notes

Brewed a cup this morning with a splash of milk and a two teaspoons of sugar. I really should be more generous with tea leaves, I’m always too stingy with them.

It’s loose leaf tea (of questionable quality) that I bought a while ago from a grocery store, and I’m pretty sure it’s ancient. Always a gold bag, and always masala chai, it’s kind of funny.

drank Honey by Honest Tea
61 tasting notes

I tried this a few days back, and I gotta say, I like it better than Lipton’s green tea offerings. I will say however, that if you want a good tasting green tea, you’d be better off seeking (guh!) greener pastures.

I drank a rose congou blend at my local tea house, and it was wonderful, but it left me hankering for something sweeter. I turned to this.

Doesn’t really excite me but isn’t the worst tea I’ve had.

drank Yunnan Noir by Adagio Teas

I found this to be immensely, overwhelmingly cocoa-y, to the point where it was more reminiscent of burnt hot chocolate than tea. Definitely prefer the Jig.

I haven’t been too on the ball. But know that I drink at least 2 cups of PG Tips daily.

drank Gunpowder by The Tea Place
257 tasting notes

The first time I bought Gunpowder from The Tea Place, it tasted so smoky that I had to let the dry leaf sit for a couple of months before it wasn’t overwhelming. I’m told that Gunpowder isn’t supposed to be smoky, and when I tried Acquired Taste’s version, it wasn’t. This time, the Tea Place Gunpowder has only a mild smokiness. Not sure if that’s because it had been hanging around at the shop for a while. In any case, it’s good!
