83 Tasting Notes
This tea is quite lovely.
As an Earl Grey fan, I could say the taste of Bergamot was lacking, but only slightly…
and to be perfectly honest, it perfectly suits this tea.
You can taste the perfectly balanced Bergamot & Saffron (I love BOTH)…
The Frankincense is ever so subtle, but definitely there both in taste and in the perfume
of this tea. I am finding I am loving this tea more at room temperature.
I might add, it only takes one packet of Truvia to sweeten the entire pot.
This tea leaves the lingering feel of silk on your palate…mmmm….
You MUST try this tea.
The more I drink, the more I want…not one tinge of bitterness or astringency.
What a smooth, creamy, oh so lovely tea.
I love every element of this tea~
saffron, cedarwood, frankincense,jasmine, goji berry,bergamot~
what a lovely balancing act performed within this one tea.
This feels like Christmas, and my silly mind can imagine
the three kings who traveled to see baby Jesus sipping THIS tea.
I just needed to stop in and give the “number” a nod and a boost.
I had this again at my Auntie’s for Thanksgiving.
I first had given it a lower rating based on the fact the resteep is not really drinkable.
BUT~ I TRULY love this tea!
I am now out of the samples my Auntie gave me, and I must purchase some.
Wondering how this will taste (iced) come Summer?
I can’t sleep…blah…so I have switched from Chamomile to Berry Good &
This truly is Berry Good :-)
I am going to have to try some more Pu-erhs
I really like this…very nice take…the earthy base on this one is not so intense, and
it allows the berries to really shine. It has kind of a muddy aroma, but the taste is super fresh.
This would be especially nice in the summer, but the thoughts of summer it is bringing
to me are quite relaxing at the moment.
This is sweet, but not overly sweet…just a slight hint of tartness…very nicely balanced.
The re-steep lacks this hint of tartness, but is still worth drinking.
The berry flavor is so authentic, like a mixed berry jam.
With all due respect, I disagree with Sil…the base really makes this one.
I feel (personally) the base makes this a solid tea that can stand alone; whereas another
base (such as a white) might make it overly sweet without much depth.
This is really nice! Thanks, Whiskey Buzz
I can see this being a Summer Staple :-)
Mmm…this is some BOLD, In Your Face FRESH Coconut
It does have a vanilla creme flavor that you taste more as it is cooling down.
The cool down is also about the time I start tasting the crust.
DO NOT USE HONEY to flavor this….I tried it with the first cup & it was a mistake.
This tea can hold its own, but can be easily overpowered by honey.
I like it with just a touch of stevia. :-)
