I just recently discovered Oolong Tea, mainly because of its health benefits. I don’t really like green tea, but I decided to give this a go even though it’s said to be a mixture of black and green tea. I was pleasantly surprised! The flavour is mellow and smooth, and natural tasting. I have a cup of Oolong after all my meals to help with digestion and metabolism. The only issue I have is that it’s not readily available where I live, so I have to travel to stock up. It’s worth it, though, because I love this tea!

Flavors: Earth, Fruity, Grass

Teabox Tuesday! I grabbed this from the Discovery Teabox; I have never heard of this company, and it appears this flavor has been discontinued. Steeped this up this evening in my small dobin. I usually don’t make green tea in the evening, but I’m at least making this rather early tonight.

It actually smells a little floral to me, oddly enough, though there is an apparent pineapple aroma. The tea is indeed just a bit floral with some tart citrus notes as well, with a fairly forward pineapple flavor, but despite the fruitiness, the green tea, which has a very mild grassiness, is quite astringent in the aftertaste. I get a slight tart/sour feeling at the back of my tongue as a result. Half a teaspoon of honey did help improve the astringency some.

A fairly average cup.

Flavors: Astringent, Citrus, Floral, Grass, Pineapple, Tart

I’m going through a box of Touch’s Mango Green tea at the moment, and it has no mango flavour whatsoever imo.

I nabbed a couple of these from the Discovery teabox I haven’t tried yet… your note isn’t convincing me to try it. haha.

This was the other tea I attempted to make at work on Saturday, and another failure. This time the teabag was left in the hot water for over an hour, and by the time I got around to it was ice cold. I expected extremely bitter tea, and was pleasantly surprised to find that this was not only drinkable but actually not bad. No mango flavour to be found, but the base tea was mild and not at all astringent until the final sip. I gulped it down iced and it was fine.

I can’t imagine steeping green tea in hot water more than a few minutes and not having it turn super astringent. If my tea was going to oversteep that badly at work I’d just go cold-steep always at that point: leave the tea in cold water for several hours, remove bad, done, heh.

Cold steeping might be a good idea in the future! I was working in an unheated tent in 2 degree weather with doors open, though, so I really wish I could have had it hot, haha.

I drank this hot and iced, but found it much more flavourful hot. I generally like my fruity teas over ice, but this one actually holds up as a hot tea.

The pineapple flavour was authentic, but the green was a bit astringent. I’m going to try brewing this for longer in the fridge and serve it with sweetener over ice. I’m hoping the sweetener will balance out the astringency.

Since this tea is usually sold in 1mg packets, and because the strawberry flavor adds a decent amount of sourness to it, I feel this tea is better used in smoothies. The sour aftertaste is very strong and kind of overpowers the earthy flavors matcha normally has.

Tried it again, but with a different ratio of water to tea. I must’ve gotten it wrong last time because it was much less bitter and grainy this time around.

First of this kind of tea I’ve had so far, and I’m impressed. A little bitter for me though, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad.

I can smell the wonderful apricot flavor coming from the bag. Tried this iced. Not a fan. I find the apricot flavor really weak. If it could taste what it smells like, I would probably have liked this one.

This has the same taste that I did not like with the white tea pack I tried previously. I guess it’s alright for a cheap bag brand of tea. But I know there are better green teas out there and you only live once so why settle for mediocre?

I am totally not a fan of this one. Just has a weird taste to it. I have had white tea before and loved it, but it was an expensive blend and not a cheap one like this tea is.

I can smell the mango flavor coming from the packaging. Smells delish! Tried this one iced. It’s not a horrible cup of iced tea, but it isn’t the best either. It’s somewhere in the middle but still drinkable. And it makes me a little sad because I do not get any mango flavor from this cup.

This is mild in earl grey flavoring, but I like it that way. The green base is also quite nice and mild. It was nice to try as a latte with a bit of sweetener and some milk. Not too shabby for a cheaper tea.

drank Strawberry Matcha by Touch Organic
1079 tasting notes

I absent mindedly made this cup of tea along with three others at the same time and boy did I overleaf it! First thing I noticed when I opened the bag was the strong fresh scent of strawberries, but there was a massive bitterness to the taste due to my negligence. Luckily, I had a little soy creamer left and dumped the rest of the carton in to dilute the mess I made. This mellowed out the bite I was tasting and would have made for a great cup if I hadn’t let it get cold when dealing with breakfast boiling over the pot and down the stove onto the floor, then come back to my cup later and microwaved it a little too much to reheat. It was a morning of messes! I do hope to revisit this tea sometime later when I have a more calm and focused mindset!

For matcha teas I find this one leans toward the more savoury flavour, a little astringent. It can be used in a lot of different ways I find. I usually drink it made in the traditional style of the Japanese tea ceremony, or as a tea latte. Sometimes I add a little flavouring. I have also tried it once or twice in a smoothie and that was quite good. It’s a nice grassy matcha that tastes very bright and fresh.

drank Strawberry Matcha by Touch Organic

Very astringent. I would describe the flavour as a typical matcha with strawberry flavouring, but it is extremely tangy in the after taste with bitterness that hits you hard. The green tea base is typical of matchas in that it resembles algae, vegetal, very green. Exactly what is expected from a matcha. I don’t like bitter, I don’t like astringent, and I don’t like tangy matchas, I can’t recommend this one. Maybe it would work well in a smoothie, milkshake, or latte.

this is pleasant enough for what it is. not getting any jasmine at all, a bit of astringency.

This is bitter, but that’s my own fault. I steeped it far too long. The extra honey helps, of course. This tea always smells so fragrant and enticing. More like fresh peaches to me than mango.

What a wonderful black tea. This is becoming a fast favourite of mine, I enjoy black with one teaspoon of sugar and then I sit down with my daughters and just enjoy. The taste is quite soft and romantic really. However, only one tea bag will make a great cup, you really can’t use the tea bag more than once.
