More samples from Two Leaves and a Bud

Finally I got around to sampling the last of my tea samples from Two Leaves and a Bud, and I so enjoyed them I wanted to share the results, especially one that was a real surprise to me!

First, the one I rather expected to like least, the Gen Mai Cha, a tea made with toasted rice, was just delightful! While I've tasted and tolerated this type of tea before, I really enjoyed this one, and will seek it out again. I got the "roasted popcorn" type of flavor I remember from previous samplings from another vendor, but this one's taste was just so much more enjoyable. It was a different tea experience, and I do like to shake things up a bit!

The Tropical Goji blend was, as I expected, a nice, fruity smelling and tasting tea. It was a great "snack" tea.

And finally, this Tamayokucha tea had a fresh, woodsy scent in the bag and a fresh, slightly vegetal taste which I very much enjoyed. Again, lower steeping times with green teas have totally revolutionized how I feel about them. You too, perhaps?


  1. What fun you have getting to taste all types of teas. It makes it fun for the rest of us just getting to share in your experiences! Thank you Angela- ps come visit me again- I've got a new blog going. Hope to here from you soon- miss you!

  2. Low steeping times and not letting your water hard boil - bring just to a boil, otherwise green and white (delicate tea leaves) will scorch and burn.

    That makes a huge difference.

    I have to try these teas, though my favs are black and strong, these have such health properties to them.

    As always, thank you for your recommendations and expertise, Angela.

    Have a wonderful day! Hugs!

  3. Sounds like nice teas. Thanks for the review.
