I have been drinking the Type O tea for many months now and think it is the best I have tasted. Love the little sachet! I steep only two minutes and don't add anything.

The type "A" tea is simply delicious!  Smells heavenly as well.  Relaxing...calming. Love it!

I think the B tea is very good.  "Green Tea with the sweetness of licorice and exciting flavor accents featuring sage, cool peppermint, and the heat of ginger- topped off with the juiciness of fresh peaches." It also has rosehips, which I always like.

I generally buy the A type though.

The O tea is absolutely delicious. I tasted it at the Williamsburg store grand opening. It's too pricey for me to buy though. I've never tasted the other 3 tea flavors.

I didn't have any of the O tea when I went to the Williamsburg store for a Thursday night support group, as I know I can't tolerate green tea so late at night (it keeps me awake.)

To me, the Type O tea has a neutral / very slight bitter taste when steeped in cold water.
When steeped in hot water, it is very bitter and I don't like it at all.

It might be a nonnie thing

As I said before I really like the O tea. I don't find it bitter at all. So maybe that is a nonnie thing. Why don't they sale it in refill bags? The tins are nice but well I'm getting a collection of them.

I bought it years ago and I found it a little bitter too. I thought maybe I was steeping it too long
I've never checked my taster status but I wouldn't be surprised to find out I'm a supertaster and I'm not a nonnie.

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 feel the same way about the tins ......that there should be something useful I should be doing
with my collection...which I keep saving...but think they belong in my recycling bin.  Might be
a few dollars cheaper if we could buy refill packs and put them back in our original tin.  Doesn't
make sense to get a new tin with every order.

It depends on the quantity the manufacturer has to make at one time...  The tin will keep the tea much fresher than a bag would, although with some of the new bag technologies, who knows? ...

Very good point...I didn't think of the storage factor for the manufacturer....keeping tea fresh
until they ship an order.  Bag technologies are complicated.  I've opened a heat sealed bag of
nuts that tasted rancid...with no air being able to get into the bag. Expiration date not reached. Best way to store tea is in tins...so perhaps there won't be any immediate solution to my tin collection. A craft project? Anyone have a clever use for at least 10 tea tins?

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'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.

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.

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.
