40 Tasting Notes
The chocolate and chai flavors in this tea just don’t mesh as well as I’d hoped. There isn’t much depth to either flavor, though the chocolate is a little more prominent in this tea. However, the chocolate isn’t particularly good. I have to add more honey or sugar and milk to a cup of this tea than I do to other Bigelow chai teas. This is the only chai from Bigelow that has disappointed me.
A nice, mellow Chamomile. It’s not the best I’ve ever tasted, but it’s not the worst! This one has been in my cupboard for awhile, so perhaps getting a new package of this flavor would improve my perception of this tea. I need to let this one steep longer than other Chamomiles, but the longer steep does so much for the flavor.
I LOVE this tea! For an inexpensive cup that really packs a flavor punch, please try this one! The caramel notes and a very slight saltiness come through beautifully. I wasn’t sure I’d like this one, but it intrigued me and it was in my “stocking stuffer for myself” budget, so I thought I’d give it a try and I’m glad I did!
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
