74 Tasting Notes
I have a stock pile of empty sample bags but forgot to put the names of who they came from… sheesh. Anyone else see a reoccurring pattern here? (thanks brain) I worry that by the time I’m in my 60’s everyday really will seem like a new day… but I digress.
It was either NayLynn or Courtney that introduced this tea to me. ;) Thank you!
This tea is delectable. There’s a light orange undertone to the rich black tea with a nice chocolatey flavor. DavidsTea really does a good job of capturing and infusing flavors into their tea.
Flavors: Chocolate, Orange
This has such a nice caramelized smell! Instead of adding sugar, I added a dollop of vanilla whipped cream that I had in the fridge and it really elevated the toffee flavor. This was a nice hot cup of creamy caramelized goodness.~
This is a sample that shmiracles sent me a while back but I never got around to making a tasting note. I’m already craving another cup! Thank you :)
Flavors: Caramel, Toffee
For some reason this reminds me of a banana flavored SwissMiss mix and strangely, I like it.
This is a tea that I’d buy and leave out for guests who aren’t regular tea drinkers. It’s good but not complex and a flavor that I think a lot of people (I know)would like.
My personal preference is to steep two bags per cup – I find that most teas from the Republic of Tea seem to taste better that way.
Flavors: banana, Chocolate
This is a spot-on Root Beer flavor! Very tasty~
I had it warm and it was good but not as good as it is iced (there’s just something about hot root beer that bothers me). The creaminess that I associate with Root Beer Floats isn’t as prominent but you can always add cream. Also, sweetener isn’t necessary but it does make the idea of drinking Root Beer more believable (and enjoyable -especially iced).
A toasty tea which reminds me of Genmaicha. It’s roasted buckwheat vs. rice which I seem to like better for some reason. After adding honey, this tea tasted a lot like Honey Smacks cereal.
You found a toasty tea that I like NayLynn, thank you for sharing this in the TTB!
