I see you got a couple of twinings teas on your list. I shame that you did not comment them yet…

Disappointing. This tastes more of candied ginger than anything else, and the Yunnan base is a very mildly flavored one. It’s nicely balanced—I’d love an “extra strength” version of this—but probably not for the real ginger fans.

I’ll try a longer steep next time, but as I already let this go for about six minutes by mistake, I don’t see much improvement being possible.

Smells great and true.Nice color for a green. I really like the way this one tastes! The Apricot highlights are PERFECT for this tea!

drank Honey Apple by Tea Laden
33 tasting notes

Yum! I’m not really getting any honey from this, but the apple flavor is very tasty and natural. It’s odd, though; I guess this tea is not particularly well-blended (or perhaps the flavors are too disparate to really go together), because it’s almost as if I’m drinking two separate things at once. There’s a kind of generic, brisk black tea—maybe an Assam?—and then, pow, apple!

Still delicious. This’d be excellent in fall, might work as a dessert tea now.

I really like the orange in this tea. it was nice for a change of pace but not something I would drink everyday.

This was the 3rd steeping on these leaves. I let it brew 10 minutes (compared to 3 min for the first pass) so I’ll be discarding the leaves after this. This is a full-leaf tea, like most of the better oolongs, in my experience. The tea is pale greenish gold in my glass mug, neither too grassy-tasting nor astringent. Not as flowery as some oolongs, but mellow vegetal aroma is quite enjoyable.

Good end to working at home all day.

This is a very decent bagged tea. The lemon is fresh and tart, and the tea is light and delicate. I imagine it’d be delicious iced.

drank Almond Oolong by Adagio Teas
6768 tasting notes

As you open the tin before steeping it smells like Almond Essential Oil or something. As it’s steeping it’s all about the earthy scent. Afterwards it’s earthy meets Almond. It’s a good Oolong with a little Almond taste. Which is ok with me.

drank Vanilla by Clipper

Best vanilla tea I’ve had yet! The black tea base is strong, and the vanilla does not taste like chemicals, as some can.

Working out of the Iridesco guys’ office today. The ginseng is a nice touch, though I can’t really taste the kombucha (am I supposed to?).

I actually like this. I’m usually not a fan of many berry flavored teas because they tend toward tasting very artificial, but this one is nice. The fruitiness is there, but not overwhelming.

Didn’t log the last 3 rebrews, but they were a real journey. Now happiness is complete (and the yunnan is in the compost bin – we put our tea leaves on the camellias in the garden.)

drank Assam Melody by Adagio Teas

This has a very earthy scent and black tea scent. After steeping it turns a tad smoky. It does have a rich black tea flavor with a hint of smoke poking thru.

My current I-just-arrived-at-work-and-need-to-wake-up tea. No milk, no sugar. (I never take milk or sugar.)

This smells WONDERFUL! The coloring looks more like a pale black or herbal than a green tea. I’m thinking I can taste the pear a tad more than the kiwi. I’s drinking it hot but I know I would like it cold as well!
