Thumbs up!"I thought it would be strongly flavored, but instead, the primary flavor was the roasted green tea, which was grassy and sweet! The raspberry was there in the background, and the pomegranate was very subtle, just adding a touch of tartness."

White August Tea carries over 110 varieties of loose leaf tea. They also sell tea accessories, have a great sale section, and are very fun to follow on Twitter!

They say on their website, "You’ll love the way our teas transport you to a different place and time when you pause to enjoy the many flavors we have to offer." and after looking through all their teas, I believe that. They offer many unique teas, and they have created some delicious sounding blends!

Morning Geisha is a great blend of roasted green tea, with raspberries and pomegranate. It smells fruity - mostly of raspberry.

I used fresh water and brought it to 170 degrees and steeped the first cup for 4 min. It was a strong cup of green tea. I thought it would be strongly flavored, but instead, the primary flavor was the roasted green tea, which was grassy and sweet! The raspberry was there in the background, and the pomegranate was very subtle, just adding a touch of tartness.

I'm not sure I would have paired the tartness of the pomegranate with this green tea, because I wouldn't want to reduce the lovely grassy sweetness. However, it works very well, and I realize why I am a tea tasted, not a tea blend creator.

I enjoyed this green tea very much! The second steep, I used the same water temp and brewed it 4 min again. It was more mild, and most of the berry flavor was gone, but the green tea itself was still very enjoyable!

If you enjoy a sweet grassy green tea, but would like just a touch of flavor, this is a great tea for you. Don't expect strong berry flavor, White August Tea has done an excellent job keeping the tea the primary flavor. I appreciate that in any tea blend. I look forward to trying more from White August Tea.
