16 Tasting Notes
I wasn’t sure about this one at first when I ordered it online, but it was such a great deal since the 2 OZ price was less than a to-go cup in store and I really wanted to try it.
Dry leaves smell really spicy and remind me of pumpkin pie (obviously). The taste of the infused tea is actually pretty good and I might even order some more! I didn’t need to put more than a teaspoon per cup of water to get a great flavor. In the list of ingredient there is chocolate but I didn’t notice it so maybe it just makes the flavors more “round”.
It is a great tea not only for fall but for all year long. I really liked it and will drink it again and possibly buy some more after the amount I have will be depleted.
Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Cloves, Nutmeg
I was in a hurry this morning and didn’t read the name on the sample I had, nor the instructions to infuse it: I just didn’t have time. I put about 1.5 teaspoon in my tumbler with hot water and infused it while I was putting my winter boots, mitts, scart, hat and coat (It was -35°C this morning so better be prepared!). I’m sure my tea didn’t infuse the recommended time but I still took out my strainer and I went outside.
On the bus I opened my tumbler to take a sip and as I removed the lid, I smelled the tea for the first time. The aroma coming from there was just what I needed on this freezing morning. So I took a sip (and obviously burnt my tongue as always because these tumblers stay too warm too long) and it was heeeaaaavvveeeennnn! I never loved a cinnamon tea like this! Normally cinnamon tea taste as if you were cheving a cinnamon stick (wood) but this one tastes just like those little cinnamon hearts you have on Valentine’s Day :D Which is why I think DT should have named this one Cinnamon Hearts instead of the Pu’erh one…
Even If my tea did not infuse the recommend time and if I didn’t put the recommended amount, it was super flavory! So I’m guessing that when you prepare it right, it must be even better! I will definitely buy a big quantity of this one for my cupboard!
Everybody is talking about Forever Nuts! I always wondered why this tea was so popular and, since I got the chance to try it today, I understand why now!
I have never been a fan – or should I say that I have always been afraid – of nutty teas because they always smell so sweet and I don’t like super sweet teas. But the thing is I never took the time (or never really had the bravery) to taste one. So when I saw Forever Nuts in my 24 Days of Tea Advent Calendar, I was kind of happy that I would have the chance to try it :) Of course, when I smelled the dry leaves, it seemed really sweet (almost like a dessert) but I did not stop there so I brewed a cup. The liquor has the same smell as the dry leaves. But when I tasted it, I don’t know what kind of dessert it reminded me of, but the flavors were great! And the best thing is it wasn’t too sweet so I could enjoy it! :D
I was very impressed by this tea and I really loved it! Of course it can’t beat Alpine Punch, but if I run out of the latter during the year, I know I can always get Forever Nuts to comfort me.
I got this tea today in my 24 days of tea advent calendar from DT. I was super excited to try it as I love blueberries but I never found a blueberry tea that I found super tasty. The smell of the dry leaves (and fruits) is really attractive and the color of the brew is….light purple-ish blue (duh!).
So now for the taste… I really enjoyed this cup! It was tasty and smooth and you could taste the blueberries. One thing I don’t like though, like all the other blueberry teas, is the aftertaste of «dried» blueberries instead of «jam» blueberries. I know this tea is called Blueberry Jam, but I don’t taste the sweetness of the jam in there.
Overall, I enjoyed this tea by its taste and aroma, but the best blueberry tea has yet to be discovered.
I had this tea for a while but I never took the time to write a review. I bought this tea this summer because I needed a good tea to drink ice cold and I thought this one would give me exactly what I want. Fist time I tried it, I wasn’t impressed. It didn’t taste much anything… But then I realized that you needed 2 tsp for a hot tea, so 4 for an iced one., which is a lot of tea considering most of the time you you only need about half this quantity. So I tried it with more. It tasted better but it’s still a little weak. The flavours are not strong enough for me.
Around this time of year, because it’s so chilly outside, I prefer my teas to be super hot! So I gave this tea another try. I find it better hot and I like it, but I don’t love it. There is something odd about the taste but I don’t know what it is.
Overall, iced or hot, I find that this tea is somehow weak and it would need something to make it pop! I like it and will finish what’s left of it, but I won’t buy it again.
After trying a couple chocolate flavoured teas and being disappointed, I was scared of trying this one and not like it. I had read many reviews about this tea and people seemed to whether like it alot or not at all so I couldn’t know if I would like it or not until I tried it.
I went to DT yesterday and smelled the dry leaves and I was surprised to notice the great dark chocolate smell instead of milk chocolate that you normally get for flavoured chocolate teas. I didn’t notice the chilis though. I ordered a tea to go and the smell of the hot beverage was very pleasant. And now what to say about the taste? A first sip and….Heaven! I finally found a chocolate flavoured tea that I like! I think that the fact that the notes are more like dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate is what I like the most. And the chilis and peppers are barely noticable so it blends well and gives this tea a super great flavor!
After getting home I made a second steep with the tea bag and the flavors were still really great. I will definitely get this tea for my cupboard.
I was so excited to try this tea but didn’t have a chance to until now. So this morning I finally had a cup and was thrilled when I smelled the infusion! It had sone really nice smells. But then when I tasted it…. EWW. The only thing I could taste was the honeybush (I believe) with its earthy flavour. I was then so disappointed because I was sure I was going to enjoy this one… I still have enough to make a second brew so next time I will try it with milk and sugar, but I’m not overexcited about it.
I stopped by DT yesterday to get some refills and of course try some of their winter collection teas! At first, I tried their White Chocolate Frost and I was really disappointed… So I tried another tea to cheer me up. I chose Alpine punch as I was curious and never tried it before. I was scared I might not like it because there was almonds in it and nutty teas are not what I prefer, but I decided to give it a try anyways.
As I always do, I smelled the dry tea at first and liked it. I was scared though that it could be too sweet for me but I still ordered a cup. Then, when I recieved it I smelled the infusion and again, I liked it. So I took a sip and actually tasted this tea. I was amazed how good it was :) The almonds were powerful enough to taste like a dessert but not too much to feel like you just chewed a bunch of nuts. It’s sweet enough and doesn’t need any additives. There are some teas that after one cup you have enough, but not this one, I could definetly drink more than one cup a day! Of course, I would keep it only for the cold seasons as I feel like it’s a comforting tea.
Overall I was extremely satisfied with this tea and for sure I will want it in my pantry! I don’t know why I was scared of tasting it (mostly beacause of the almonds) but I’m glad I did because I like it a lot ;)
I stopped by DT yesterday to smell and taste some of their winter collection teas. As I am a fan of mint chocolate, when I saw this one in store I tought “OMG! This is going to be soooo goooood!”. So obviously I tried it! My fist reaction was that I tought there must have been a mistake. I did’t taste at all the chocolate, only the mint and it actually tasted just like normal mint herbal infusion. Of course I was really disappointed. I like herbal mint teas, but when you expect to have a chocolaty minty taste and you don’t get it, you’re not as satisfied…
