11 Tasting Notes

Lemony citrus with subtle spice on the nose. Very clean smelling. Visually fun with small bits of ginger and turmeric interspersed with fine green sprigs.
Taste: Ooo. This is very different from what I expected. Earthy, creamy and sweet with a lingering sweetness. Less bite to the ginger than I expected. I get a little brightness in the overall flavor as well. This could be a herbal alternative to hot cocoa, perhaps.

Flavors: Cream, Ginger, Lemongrass

Nicely balanced flavors. Not overpowering. Man the aromas from the pouch are impressive. Subtle citrus notes. Spices: cinnamon, clove, some cardamon.

I just got back to my office after a few minutes and upon entering the space was greeted by this chai’s spiced aroma. Very pleasing.

As some reviewers have noted, this is not a strong knock your socks off, concentrated chai that you might mix with milk. I found the it just right, without any additions. If I were making my own blend, I’d shoot for something similar to this blend.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Citrus, Clove

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I had this tea last time I was backpacking. A perfect way to both start and end the day. I should really note that I’m a ginger lover. I love strong, hot ginger flavors. This fit the bill very nicely. Invigorating and relaxing at the same time.

Flavors: Ginger, Spicy

While the leaves themselves smell of seaweed, the tea itself has a fuller body and tastes more of the earth, with notes of nuts and honey.

I lost my original first impressions while a server was being updated. Buttery with flavors and scents of the sea. Not seaweed but reminds me of the ocean.

drank Sencha with Matcha by Steepster

Steeps to a wonderful light green. (I transferred mine to a clear glass just to enjoy the color more.) The taste is layered from the initial greens (think salad/spinach) and seaweed to a lingering subtle sweet fruit-like melon quality. Pleasant and interesting.

Flavors: Melon, Seaweed, Spinach

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 1 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Earl Grey by Steepster

Wow. This was my first sample from the June’s Steepster Essentials vol 1 set. I’d describe it as bright and rounded. Just opening the pouch released the scent of bergamot, causing me to smile. Very tasty. I’m considering purchasing some when my small pouch runs out.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Lemon
