73 Tasting Notes
Yellow tea?!? I’ve heard of most tea by now…but yellow. Nah. So when I saw What-cha had it and it was at a reasonable price I couldn’t resist. I had to at least try it! My tea tasting is still very beginner…prolly will always be. And that’s OK. This just tasted like green tea to me. It looks like green tea too. Its Ok steeped for a short time with cooler water. But it wasn’t really anything special. But to be honest…my favorite tea is black. I’m happy to have tried it. But I wouldn’t buy it again. Meh
Flavors: Spinach, Vegetal
I grabbed this tea because I was feeling a little nostalgic for the Eggnog tea that Bigelow used to have…also I’m a sucker for anything that says Salted Caramel. It’s not that good. It kind has a sweet scent…but not salted caramel and certainly doesn’t taste like salted caramel. I don’t like the scent. And I don’t like the tea. I’m not sure how to really describe except…YUCK. I even let a friend at work try some and my mom and they thought it was nasty too. Can’t even be saved with milk and sugar.
Ahhh…back to my favorite types of tea. I was a little out of my comfort zone trying the Japanese /Brown Rice tea….and another white tea. Here I am back to my very favorite type of tea. BLACK! This was yummy. Malt and notes of pear, and something faintly sweet. I first made it according to the direction with 2 tsp per cup. I found that way too much and made the tea too strong and astringent to where it over powered the flavor. Using just one teaspoon the tea was delicious. And never went bitter. I love my black tea as a latte…..but I found this was better without adding milk.
It’s a great one!

I almost forgot to review this tea. I found the packaging in my tea review pile and figured I would get it out the way. This is so similar to the strawberry one I reviewed a while ago. Except not so much strawberry flavor and no hint of cranberry .It’s really good…but only cold! Don’t drink this hot! I need to pick up a another couple of bags to mix with the Hibiscus Tea we have. Anyway…love it! And high recommend. I will prolly switch between buying the two fruity teas. I get mine in the DM the town over from me.
Flavors: Apple, Fruity, Strawberry
I was really excited about trying this…as I am about most teas. I love trying new things! But even though I’m happy to have tried this…I didn’t like it. At all! It’s just to too ricey and just does not have a pleasant taste to me. Every time I tried it I couldn’t help but think it would be amazing to drink with Sesame chicken. I guess that’s what the flavor reminds me of. Coincidently after drinking it most of this week I’ll be making Sesame Chicken for dinner. Go figure! Anyway…not for me and I don’t think I’ll ever be buying it again.
You get a couple of resters…but it doesn’t rested quite as much as other teas I have tried. Quality of the green tea doesn’t really matter since you are just mixing it with the rice stuff…that being said I don’t think it was high quality and I’m not mad at that. Why waste the good stuff to mix with rice…
Flavors: Popcorn, Rice
Am I really the first reviewer of this Tea? Say what? Anyway, from the sampler I had a couple years ago I thought white Tea was going to be one of my favorites. I was amazed b the fruitiness of the other Tea and expected the same in this one. However this one is blah for me. It happens. I drank it up but wouldn’t repurchase. Still love what-Cha. Just not enough to reorder this particular tea
Earl grey is one of my favorite flavors which is why when I saw this on the website it was a must. I like mine as a latte. Smelled super good and makes a decent cup but not really my favorite earl grey. There’s an Earl Grey I can get cheaper and I think it’s tastes better so I’ll prolly stick with that one. This was nice to try but I think I’ll order more special teas from Whatcha instead of a flavor that’s so widely available. Still glad I ordered because had I not I would have been very curious the whole time about it. I guess the main problem is that it doesn’t stand up to milk and sugar, the bergamot smells amazing but seemed to not be as strong as I would like.
I’m a Tea beginner. Brewed it Gong Fu… my very first time. I was surprised it smelled so Rice like. Anyway… as a begginger… I picked up notes of jasmine and rice. It smelled a lot like Green Tea and kind of tasted like a lot of the greens I’ve tried. Also got quite a few vegetal notes… spinach sort of flavor. It was a very interesting Tea to experience and I’m glad I got it as a sample. It’s a great company to order from and the hand written notes are great. I’ve got a couple more to try out. Tried to get a Nice variety.
I don’t really know much about the show that inspired the Tea. I also didn’t have high expectations, I found most Tea from this company to fall short. I was also afraid it would taste average like the other green tea I tried from this company. I was pleasantly surprised. I actually liked it. Some sweepings were vegetal, other were pleasantly fruit and nice. Nicest when cold. Also….carrots? Totally new tea ingredient for me but I think I like it. I don’t know that I would go out my way to reorder or highly reccomend…buts it’s ok.
