95 Tasting Notes
At the suggestion of a friend, I tried this as a latte with chocolate milk. The result? Not only is this tea delicious but it’s also quite decadent! It is very similar to ‘Read My Lips’ by David’s Tea, but definitely has a bit of rooibos flavor to it.
Something I look for in any tea with peppermint in it is how powerful the mint is and how long it lingers. This tea does not disappoint, and the mint does linger pleasantly but is not overpowering to the rest of the flavors in the tea.
I’m quite fond of this tea in the same way that, when no one is looking, I’m fond of Mcdonald’s fries. This is to say that I don’t think it’s a good tea, but I secretly find it delicious. I have it whenever I’m visiting my parents who frequently (and perhaps obsessively) drink Tim Horton’s coffee.
It doesn’t really have an ‘authentic’ Earl Grey taste, but with a little milk and sugar it tastes like Kellogg’s Froot Loops.
I was a little hesitant about trying this tea, because I have a love-hate relationship with bananas… but I’m so glad that I did!
The suggested steeping time is 4-7 minutes, but I just left the tea in. I think this approach might be best. Some bits (I think it’s banana) floats to the top, but it’s all delicious anyway. This tea reminds me a little bit of the banana flavoured penicillin I had as a child, so depending on whether or not you liked that taste, you might like of hate this tea!
Clearly, the Earl was a super spy. I say that because this tea is SECRET black tea disguised by the taste of a Herbal, Berry Tea. I agree with some of the other comments: it doesn’t taste like an Earl Grey at all.
I want to try it it iced and blended with lemonade though, I have a feeling that would be good.
This tea reminds me of the Caribbean, which is pretty awesome considering I’m close to staring a Canadian Winter in the face.
What I love about white tea is the subtle taste and ‘White Malibu’ delivers just that with a sweet hint of coconut. If that on it’s own isn’t enough to make you love this tea, the fact that it smells just like rum ought to!
I enjoyed mine hot with sugar, but I think what I’d really like is to try it the way David’s Tea suggests: Iced, with a dash of rum…and sipped from a straw out of half a coconut (held by a cabana boy.)
