Picture of Summer Tea - Four Seasons

Received as a gift about a year ago (but in sealed teabags).

Aroma: dry tea has a rich strawberry flavor.

Flavor: fruit flavor is not very apparent which is a bit disappointing. Apart from that it's a decent tea. May try it with hotter water (I know you're not supposed to boil green tea!) or see if it works bette...

Picture of Tea Book Volume II (Gold)

Basilur is creative in the packaging and marketing of their teas. This is part of an impressively elaborate gimmick: the second in a multi-volume series of well-decorated "books"—each a metal tin about the size and shape of a small hardback book—containing a plastic bag full of loose tea that gets folded and some...

Ginger - Magic Fruits

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????
Dec. 10th, 2016

Another of the teabags I picked up at a wedding recently. Good quality, but not the sort of blend that I'm crazy about.

The tea bag itself smells like dried ginger, I can't smell much tea, and upon brewing, the cup smells similar. The flavor though has a good balance of tea and ginger, but even drinking the cup, g...
