If you have some sort of studio, garden shed, or workshop. If you keep small amounts of specialty flours. A supply closet or table of some kind?

But, yes, tins are good for tea storage, for sure. Does it smell good?

Nope, no studio, no garden shed, no workshop....but storing flour in these tins is going to make flour smell like the tea...which happens to smell heavenly.  The empty tea tin seems to hold onto that aroma almost indefinitely.

Then it's perfect for some of your rice. I'd put some basmati rice in a tin. Some brown rice in another tin. Mmmm. Store some kind of bland cookie in there. Fruity tea flavor.

I'm an O and rosehip is an avoid so I'll pass on this tea. I've never like any tea with rosehip in it, interesting? I'll stick my sencha and matcha powder.

I am a super taster and don't find it bitter.

Tom, are you sure you're not oversteeping? You may just not care for the taste of green tea, which has a little natural tang. Have you tasted other green teas?

Drinking a cup now and keep sipping and thinking how to describe that specific taste of green tea! It's got a little bite, that's the best I can do!


I've tried shorter steeping times with hot water and even 1 minute steeping still give me that bad taste.
The cold steeping seems to do the trick.

Green tea in general has a neutral / off taste to me.

Might be an off taste in your water.  I sometimes find if I bring a green tea bag with me to
someone else's house and use their hot water, my tea tastes "off" too.  A way to experiment
is to buy bottled water in a glass container....make tea with it and see if you notice a difference.

Do you have city water?  I have well water which has tons of natural minerals....Our cold water goes through a filtration system which takes away that mineral-y taste. I'm quite sure drinking
water with a lot of minerals would totally ruin the taste of my green tea.

I agree.  Using a good water filter or spring water makes a lot of difference in the quality of tea.  Also it helps us drink more water.

Anybody try the AB?


I bought the AB tea as a gift for my aunt and she said it was very good.

I was also collecting quite a pile of tins and finally put some to recycling. I like them for packaging the tea, though. I personally couldn't think of much to do with them but thought they would make some fun building blocks for a small child, or games like "guess what's inside." Other fun things for kids would be storage for coins or use for collections, like rocks, etc. They could also be covered and decorated and used for gifts. In the absense of entertaining myself through children, I finally put some to rest.

We have a .01 micron filter for our drinking water.

I think it's just me

I have never tried the tea.
I have a huge variety of teas in my pantry, however. So I don't "need" to procure B tea.
But I've given the O and A teas as gifts.

Report just came in today from a friend to whom I'd sent a tin of O and a tin of A (she's O, her husband is A).
She's finished her O tea and loved it. Will order more.
Her husband did not like the A tea: "Too pineapple-y or something". They gave the tin away to a couple of friends who are both A.
