Ever stumble upon a tea that just completely makes you say “What?!?” This tea did that to me.
I review products for companies on Amazon all the time. Besides my blog and doing tea reviews for SororiTea Sisters, it is one of my favorite ways to spend my time. Whenever I see tea up for grabs needing a review, I always get giddy and hope I make the cut.
So when this tea arrived in its giant 16oz package (yes, 1 lb!) I wasn’t sure what I would be in for except that I have a pound of this tea. I opened the enormous tea pouch up and was hit with this lovely fragrance mix of green tea, pomegranate, and a sweet rose bud floral undertone. I was incredibly impressed. The tea leaves didn’t’ appear to be crushed but lovely and with a lot of substance. I couldn’t wait to try this tea.
Brewed up like a green tea and allowed to steep for about 4 minutes, this tea yields an amazing flavor. Lovely rich buttery green tea notes with a jammy pomegranate flavor and a sweetness from the rose buds that really bring this tea to another notch. There is just a slight hint of a tartness from the pomegranate but it is very very slight. Everything is just so smooth and all the flavors are right where they need to be. (I have a feeling I’ll be drinking this tea all day).
The jammy notes are what get me the most and I can say that this tea has me hooked. I’ve already got a pitcher going for a cold brew for this week and I’m planning on making some iced tea as well for the day. I’m on my third cup from the same infusion and the flavors are still giving me so much love.
This is one of those teas that proves you can’t judge a book (or tea) by its cover. This tea is amazingly priced for what you get and I can’t wait to try and check out the other teas I have coming. Highly recommend this tea for a flavored green tea that bursts with flavor. I’m absolutely serving this at my sister in law’s baby shower in a few weeks. It is really that good and one that everybody would enjoy. The flavors are bright enough to give flavor but not so overwhelming that you can’t taste the green tea base. One of those teas you just have to share!

Find Strength – Passionfruit Jasmine Green Tea – from Teamotions – has the BEST Passionfruit Aroma in a tea I have ever smelled!
The jasmine is mellow and I LOVE that about it as I’m not a Jasmine Flavored Fanatic like some people are. I have an appreciation for it, sure, but I usually don’t go choosing teas just for their Jasmine content.
The Green Tea and the Passionfruit are the highlights here!
It has a nice surprisingly smooth finish which was unexpected yet enjoyed very much! This tea is dandy!
Where To Buy: Byron Bay Tea Company
A brightly-coloured infusion, with jade green undertones, this exotic blend balances the sweetness of quince with a delicate base of Japanese green tea. Green tea is prized for its antioxidant constituency and subsequent benefits to health (particularly digestion). The result is a rejuvenating, aromatic and refreshingly palatable tea that can be enjoyed any time of the day.
I can’t say as I have had too many or any Quince flavored teas YET but after tasting this one from Byron Bay Tea Company I surely want to try more!
The sweet green tea taste is delightful – the quince was MADE for this tea and it’s juicy but not tart in the slightest – and the Jasmine isn’t over the top or even that strong at all but gives it an overall ‘pretty’ factor that completes the cup.
The Quince is the key and it is good! Overall, it’s a gentle, fruity, sweet, yet pretty flavored green but I like this! I really like this!

Premium Silky Green Tea from Bird Pick Tea & Herb has an AWESOME aroma! It’s like nothing I have ever smelled before!
The only way I can describe the dry loose leaf aroma is intensely buttered flavored popcorn – I think I can even smell a little naturally salted flavor – unless I just am associating the aroma with buttered popcorn so much so that my mind is playing tricks on me! Whatever it is I have to say I would easily give the aroma on this one a 100!!!!
These are some crazy wild leaves, too, that put on quite the show as they unfurl!
The taste is also Buttery! Buttered Veggies! Buttered Popcorn! It’s semi-sweet and a very flavorful green! The more I sip it the more sweeter it gets! This is smooth! It reminds me of a milky oolong but then it reminds me of a buttery green! It may be somewhere in the middle – regardless I am REALLY enjoying this one!
This is probably one of the most memorable greens I have had in a LONG time!
I ended up doing multiple infusions on this one too! I highly recommend trying multiple infusions with this one! The 2nd infusions is completely different than the first but far from disappointing!!!!
This is MUCH sweeter and MUCH MORE silkier and creamy and sooth the 2nd time around! It’s less buttery and more sweet with the 2nd infusion. It’s still FULL of flavor tho and a wonderful tasting green!!!
As for the 3rd infusion…
Again it’s completely different from the previous infusion! This is still intensely flavored but this time around it’s more of a grassy green with slight buttery notes underneath. It still ends rather smooth and I would still call it silky but a grassier silky instead of a buttered popcorn silky/creamy…maybe more like a broccoli type!?
I LOVE YOU Silky Green!

The Persimmon Tree

The Persimmon Tree Tea Company is one of those companies that has really grabbed my attention lately. Their flavor selection is really wonderful and I love their little tin/tubes, too! I also really like their website and labels. I just think they are an all-around good company! If you have the opportunity to check them out – please do!
As far as this specific tea goes…
Prior to infusing…the aroma of this reminded me of my Grandfather because it smelled like his Almond Pistacho Ice Cream he used to eat! As I infused this it morphed to mostly Caramel scented with a little green tea scent underneath.
I did sip this right away after my infusion was complete and thought it it was pretty good…a nice combo of green tea and caramel. But as the liquid cooled at room temperature for a little bit I noticed the magic happen! The Caramel Flavor doubles! It was very yummy! The Caramel is genuine and helps cut the craving for sweets, at least for me, it did!
This is really terrific!
The caramel is center of attention here but the green tea flavor is noticeable in the background, too, and there is a little Rooibos sweetness coming thru but not very much but that’s ok because I wouldn’t change a thing about this Persimmon Tree Tea offering!!
