This tea is definitely better chilled! The peach notes are perfect—both in aroma and taste. The slight sweetness is also just right…not cloyingly sweet.

drank Blood Orange by Tea Forte
33 tasting notes

This was part of a sampler pack of Noir teas by Tea Forte. The aroma of this was very subtle but a true scent, not fake like some orange teas. The flavor was definitely a different kind of orange…the difference between blood orange and navel oranges is distinct. The black tea is dominant in this blend.

Flavors: Blood orange

I haven’t changed my mind much since the last time I rated this tea. Despite a nice lemon scent right out of the box and a slight honey flavor present when I steep it, the flavor is so subtle—to the point of blandness—that it’s just not a tea I would drink daily. I had to add honey to make it worth drinking. If I was sick or had a cold and wasn’t able to taste much, I might like it just for something to soothe a sore throat. Maybe it would be better iced.

Flavors: Honey, Lemon

I’ve never had much luck getting a full flavor with Celestial Seasonings teas either :(

drank Peach Jubilee by Tea Forte

The flavor and scent of peach is subtle. It’s not a tea I would drink regularly. I enjoyed the flavor more once the tea had cooled so I imagine it would taste good iced.

drank Chocolate Rose by Tea Forte

The rose flavor was very overpowering and extremely artificial in both taste and smell. The chocolate flavor was almost non-existent. I would definitely NOT recommend this flavor.

I’ve had quite a few TeaForte teas but I’ve never liked any of their chocolate teas. :(

drank Black Cherry by Tea Forte

Has a subtle black cherry flavor…not a dominant flavor, but nicely balanced. The aroma is not overly powerful and you actually have to get quite close to the mug in order to get the scent.

drank Autumn Leaves by Della Terra Teas
33 tasting notes

I haven’t had many Rooibos teas, but I really like the flavor of this one. The aroma right out of the package brought autumn right to my kitchen and it only got better when I started steeping it. The warm, rich scent of maple is the dominant aroma. The flavor is that of maple and spice. I think I’ll add a bit of sugar or honey just to bring out the autumn flavors a bit more but otherwise this tea is great just on its own. This tea definitely put me in the mood for crisp weather, football, and long-sleeves!

Flavors: Maple, Spices

Preparation
5 min, 30 sec 1 tsp
