17 Tasting Notes

Not as awesome as the price. However, it is pretty good stuff, and a real shocker the taste buds if you’re not prepared for how it tastes. I’ve heard folks compare it to a golden Yunnan, but it’s lighter and more complex than that, with a buttery finish like certain red wines.

This was a nice, inexpensive and basic Kenyan black tea. It becomes very bitter quite quickly, so keep the steep time down.

This herbal tea works like a charm for me when I can’t sleep. In fact, it’s so powerful (at least for me), that I feel almost woozy after I drink it all. I sleep just as well as with medication. Truly amazing, and to top it off, it’s delicious.

A tart, flavorful fruit-herbal blend that takes no prisoners with its cherry taste! It’s good stuff, but I have to drink it sparingly. It’s tart, I say.

If you’ve had rooibos, then you know what it’s all about – vibrant red-brown color, sweet tobacco-y taste, and a generally relaxing experience. I love this stuff.

This works great as a caffeine-free dessert tea or for those enamored of highly flavored teas that are still of high quality. The rooibos is almost overpowered, but it can still be tasted.

This is a wonderful guayusa blend, and the one that introduced me to this particular plant. It has the perfect balance of flavors, and the grassy guayusa is complemented well by the lemongrass and cinnamon. This is one of my night time favorites, even with the caffeine content.

My youngest daughter’s favorite tea, hands down, and one of mine as well. I am glad Ohio Tea Co. and New Mexico Tea Co. are doing their own blending. This tea is a real winner, and I am a huge fan.

Quite possibly the best fruit-flavored tea I’ve ever had, and one I enjoy intensely. The cherry flavor doesn’t overpower the Japanese-style green tea underneath, and it’s very well balanced. Very, very good.

By far one of my favorites from my regional favorite tea blender Ohio Tea Company. This is bold, sweet, smack-your-face cinnamon flavor with a base of high quality black tea. I always put a bit of demerara sugar in, but it’s not really needed. It’s a sweet tasting tea on its own. It’s a tea I intend to always have on-hand.
