drank Yerba Mate by Guayaki

I’ve been a skeptic of yerba mate for some time now, but when a co-worker offered me a bag I thought I’d give it a try. It was a pleasant surprise.

Great flavor that’s not overwhelming. 5 minute steep seems to be the perfect amount of time to make the tea enjoyable. Can’t say much on the energy front, but just drinking it makes me feel great.

drank Green Walnut by Tea Guys
9 tasting notes

If you’re looking for a tasty, fun, treat-like tea to enjoy on a Spring or Autumn (or any month, really) evening, the Green Walnut is strongly suggested.

Before you even taste the tea, a full, tantalizing aroma will fill your senses. When the first drop of tea touches your tongue you will immediately taste the lush green, blended to perfection with a butter-like taste of walnuts.

I strongly suggest this tea for anyone looking to explore more outside-the-box green teas.

A decent tea for those in a hurry. Yogi does a fine job of making the experience of enjoy tea at the office simple and efficient. The Green Tea Super Antioxidant tea by Yogi is not very flavorful, and what little flavor there is doesn’t taste much like most green teas. Very earthy flavored with a sensational taste of licorice root.

If you need a quick green tea to enjoy, this wouldn’t be a bad option. There are, however, many other, similarly priced, individual bag teas that you should look into before purchasing.

The Tulsi Pomegranate Green tea by Organic India is a very flavorful tea, the pomegranate and tulsi is almost overwhelming. If you’re a big fan of chai tea and pomegranate then you’ll like this tea. If you like teas that are more natural tasting then I suggest trying something different.

drank English Breakfast by Twinings

Thought I’d try this English Breakfast tea by Twinings this morning. Personally I wasn’t impressed.

The tea is dark and has a very strong wooden aroma, which carries over into the flavor. As others who have reviewed the tea have stated: a long steep time and a bit of milk can take this tea to the next level.

Good tea, just not great.

A simple tea, cheap and available in a lot of grocery stores. Though I agree with Michel Wolfe, the flavor is definitely lacking.

After a few cups spread over several days this tea does grow on you.

A great tasting, fun tea from Tazo. Great for a summer evening just laying around the back porch. As others have mentioned: it’s fairly sweet, but not enough to make you dislike it.
