34 Tasting Notes

I enjoyed this tea. Smokey for sure, definitely evokes a fallish feel. I would be happy to see this in a sampler, and might even order a small bag of it. I appreciated the quality of the leaves.

Nice, very gentle tea. Nothing to jump out and bite you; no tannic taste or funky OJ flavor, or rooibos dryness. I’d drink this at night when I just want a hot beverage but no particularly strong flavor. Like others said, you want to shake the dust off the teabag first. I probably wouldn’t buy a whole box of this, but would be glad to find it in a sampler.

Too gross for words. The watermelon taste was pretty much like a Jolly Rancher, and it didn’t really go with the black tea. I’m not a fan of mint in my black tea either, so I guess it’s no surprise that I really didn’t like this.

Better than I thought it would be. Green tea with a surprising amount of citrus. I would drink this again.

It smelled so promising. The spearmint was a nice change from the usual peppermint. But (at least as a hot tea), the flavor combo of spearmint and black tea didn’t appeal to me.

I like this for a green tea. It’s very berry, but not in the berry/rose hips/hibiscus kind of way. Best drunk very hot though. I don’t think I would add it to my regular rotation.

This is just okay. It has a strong hit of rooibos and then is sweet in a weird kind of way. I wouldn’t really want to drink it again.

I’m so surprised by this tea. The scent of it reminds me overwhelmingly of an 80’s scratch-n-sniff sticker. It’s not tart, and it definitely has some artificial flavors going on, but it’s rather harmonious. It doesn’t have any acrid/dry herbaceous taste that I would associate with some herbal teas. This, surprisingly, would be a contender for my regular rotation of decaf teas.

A nice, desserty decaf tea. Best drunk very hot; as it cools, the artificial taste becomes more pronounced. I wouldn’t buy this regularly, but I’d be happy to see it as a sample again.

Eh, it’s okay for a straight rooibos. It has that earthy, dry smell and feel in the throat. Umremarkable. I’d drink it again, but wouldn’t buy it.
