Old tea bag from huge bags…
But this one must be bad even fresh. It was dirty in taste, very drying, rather based on herbals than on actual fruit.
No notes of pomergranate, nor lemon, nor lemongrass, just nothing from those! It was green tea? No notes of tea as well.
I don’t know how it tasted! It was like drinking hot water with infused dirt from old country road.
This tea didn’t wanted to brew at all. I used boiling water, typical volume of water (300 ml) and… it just did not changed the colour at all.
So, I was moving with it, even squeezed in the end and… it has got light brown, yet clear colour.
Taste is way too similar. There are little bit of blueberry, rather as aftertaste. No body, no base oolong notieable. Weird tea. I don’t know if it is becasue of age (huge bags section), or just… meh?
One of the first things that’s noticeable, with this particular jasmine tea, is that the green tea is actually detectable. With some jasmine tea the actual tea can be hard to find and totally dominated by the overpoweringly powdery note of jasmine. Birt & Tang provide the perfect combo, being strong, but simultaneously subtle, in comparison to other jasmine tea.
Final Thoughts: Not the best quality leaves, but cheap, certified organic and actually tastes good. It’s gentle, making it a great starter jasmine tea for those who are unsure.

So I realized a little too late in the game that I was out of the raspberry tea from Monterey Bay Spice Company, which included raspberry leaf in the blend. I would drink it about once a month for some woman-specific symptoms, if you get my drift, and I needed some right away and couldn’t wait on an order. I thought about checking out Whole Foods, but then I was at a Home Goods store (sort of a reseller of all kinds of homewares, including some foods like jams, cookies, and teas) and happened across a box of this tea. Score!
This actually isn’t pure raspberry leaf, it also apparently includes raspberry fruit as well, though I’m not sure in what form. They are tea bags, but that is fine for an herbal tea. An extended steep yielded a yellowy, herby-smelling tea, and I rather pleasant flavor. It’s quite sweet, a bit fruity, and a bit herby. I wouldn’t say “yes, very raspberry!” to the flavor, but it’s certainly tasty enough. Very pleased with my find.
Sometimes you get lucky when you buy something because you stumble upon it, withouth ever having tried it before. Such is the case with this Gojiberry tea.
First off, sorry I don’t have a better picture to post. But I had to make sure you saw the box….so you’ll be able to run out & buy it…
I stumbled upon this box in Home Goods. They often sell gourmet foods at really reasonable prices. I don’t remember exactly what I paid for this tea, but I would gladly pay double for another box!
The flavor is a mix of tart & sweet. And the smell is delightful. Definitely a light herbal, with a lot of great flavor.
The box I bought has 50 teabags in it & I believe I bought this in October….I have two teabags left! I’m running back to Home Goods to pray they have more. If not, I’m going to have to search the web to find this tea.
I only sweeten this with local honey. Overall, it makes for a great cuppa tea!
It’s all gone, thank goodness. I’ve had it at work and had lots of comments about how it’s not very manly. They are right, but it wouldn’t bother me if the tea was worth it. After all, I eat lots of houmous at work and have loads of comments about that, but I still eat it because it’s delicious and morally good (I’m a bit of an environmentalist but not actually a vegan). I had it in work simply because it was in a teabag and therefore easy to make at work, but I think I’ll find something better.
I’ve actually just had an e-mail from Birt & Tang but I won’t be getting this again. If I have anything, it’ll be their Ginger one, which is quite nice
I’m only having this because I have teabags left over that need finishing [10 left after this one :-( ] and I won’t buy any more tea until I have finished up some of the tea in my cupboard. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, flowers seem to add nothing to a tea (other than colour to the leaves). I’m not saying they don’t taste of anything because they do, but I don’t like it, whatever it is
