Product Description

Flavor: Super Irish Breakfast

Founded in 1972, Stash Tea Company originally operated out of an old Portland Victorian style house, supplying loose herbal teas and bulk herbs to natural food stores. Starting in 1975, the company broadened its focus to include bagged teas and then began to sell a full line of traditional, specialty blend and herbal teas directly to fine restaurants and through a mail order catalog to consumers. Today, Stash Tea Company is one of the largest specialty tea companies in the United States. The company derives its name from an entertaining aspect of tea folklore. In earlier centuries, tea was a valuable commodity traditionally transported by clipper ship. The ship’s captain often was presented with some of the finest teas for his personal use. This supply was his “stash,” stowed carefully as his “private reserve.” Today, the term is still used to denote anything put away carefully because of its preciousness.

Flavor Name: Premium Green Tea Organic Verified Purchase
Unlike most Stash teas, and most premium loose teas in general, this tea is not identified by a region of origin or a method of preparation. Fittingly, the flavor is very typical of unadulterated green tea. Before infusion, the dry leaves smell of sweet hay, but after brewing, the smell and the flavor is a bit more mild and earthy. There are plenty of stems mixed in with the tea leaves, which is disappointing in a "premium" tea. The most important thing I can say about this tea is to only infuse it for 2 - 3 minutes. The recommended infusion time of 3 - 5 minutes is way too long and results in a very bitter cup of tea. Overall, this is a fine tea for the price, but don't expect anything outstanding.

Flavor Name: Assam Organic Verified Purchase
This tea isn't quite as full bodied as some other Assams but still has a great flavor. The quality is good: the leaves are small tips and there is very little tea "dust" or stems in the bag.

I have blended this 1:1 with Stash's Organic Ceylon for an easy drinking English-style tea.

Use 1/2 as much tea as you normally brew and still have a stronger more full bodied tea.

Flavor Name: Premium Green Tea Organic Verified Purchase
Having purchased a package of this tea and one of Stash's Pinhead Gunpowder Green, I can safely say that the Gunpowder is much better tea. The "Organic Premium" is unacceptably heavy on stems and twigs, with an unpleasantly mulchy taste. The Gunpowder, on the other hand, is much lighter and more delicate. Same price, same distributer, both organic. Stash Gunpowder is simply better.

This tea has a very grassy, vegetal taste and smell, which can be good or bad depending on your preference.

Flavor Name: Earl Grey, Double Bergamot
****
I enjoy bergamot a lot, but this tea was way too fragrant for me; still it was different and enjoyable to try. The bergamot flavor is strong, not subtle, and a bit overwhelming---it's all you can taste.

The ingredients of this tea are premium black teas with pure oil of bergamot---that's all.

The manufacturer writes: "Oil of bergamot comes from the rind of a citrus fruit which grows very well in the Calabria region of Italy. Pure top quality oil of bergamot is expensive but no blend or man-made flavoring can match the ethereal aroma and finely nuanced flavor of the real thing.
Certain Earl Grey fanatics have grown especially fond of the top grade Calabrian oil of bergamot that we use and have asked for more, ..More,... MORE! Thus was born Stash Double Bergamot Earl Grey. In our Double Bergamot Earl Grey tea, the black tea base still serves as a solid foundation for this blend, but the oil of bergamot takes wing and soars to new unprecedented heights. The flavor is quite pronounced but not at all soapy or bitter which would happen with low grade oils. Is the flavor too strong? For a conservative drinker, maybe yes, but more adventurous types really seem to like it."

I must not be adventurous enough. I do agree with the manufacturer, though, and it might be the tea for you if you're a huge fan of bergamot and want a lot of it, and I also agree that it tastes pure, not soapy or bitter at all.

Flavor Name: Jasmine Green Tea Organic
I've started each morning off with this particular tea for the last 5 or 6 years. I love this tea. I went from a coffee drinker to a green tea drinker because of this tea. It has nice a strong flavor that I simply adore. (I make it much stronger then suggested, I love bitter tastes! Then I just add hot water to the leaves for the second cup, and it is as good as the first!) I have been purchasing this from Stash directly for years, but it is a better deal on Amazon.

Flavor Name: Pinhead Gunpowder Green Organic
Stash's Organic Pinhead Gunpowder Green Tea, Loose Leaf, is the best of the best of green tea's. It is rich, smooth, and looks like liquid gold in the cup. The tea leaves can be used 2 or 3 times, depending on how strong you like your tea, with good results and good flavor.
