80 Tasting Notes

This is a pretty tasty Rooibos. I agree with the other reviewer it is chocolaty but in a chocolate liqueur sort of way. I had it plain but I might try messing around with different additions and see how that changes the flavors. I would not buy this normally but it was a nice addition to the Amoda box this month.

This is pretty tasty matcha. I was not too happy that it was already sweetened I like being able to be in control of the amount of sweetener in my tea. Oh well this is pretty good. Very sweet but tasty. I like that the peach flavor doesn’t taste fake peachy and it is not overwhelming the matcha. Not one I would necessarily buy but definitely worth a try. :-)

I am not a huge Earl Grey person but I do find one I enjoy here and there. This is one I enjoy. I like citrus blends with earl grey. Bergamot tends to work perfectly with citrus. This is a very smooth earl grey no bitterness at all. I even got some creaminess from it without having to add milk which was a definite plus!

I really love this tea. The smell of the tea is delicious. I wanted to eat it. The steeped smell is just as good. The flavor is really mild but nutty and sweet. Which has made it perfect for an evening tea the last couple nights. I am definitely going to order a full amount from Naked Teas Galore since I really want to have this in my stash now :-)

Thanks The DJBooth for this one! This is quite an interesting tea. Very unsual in flavor profile. I like the fruity/spicy flavor of it. I agree with The DJBooth on adding cinnamon it really would taste like a holiday tea. But it is quite tasty I like it.

Oh man this is good. I love teas that taste like a sinful dessert minus the calories :-) Wow this is the first one from Frank that I really want to get a full batch of and always have in my stash. This is so creamy and smooth no bitterness at all. I never want to be without this tea! Yum!

Thanks The DJ Booth for this sample :-) This is pretty good. Its strangely sweet though which was surprising. I agree with one of the other reviewers it almost has a cinnamon gum taste to it. The dry leaf and steeped leaf smell delicious but I feel like the taste doesnt match up. But still a decent mate blend.

This is a whole lot of YUM! I agree with the other reviewers that this one done as a latte really makes it shine. Just gives it that extra bit of creaminess it needs. I actually did it with unsweetened coconut milk. Which was a delicious combination. Will definitely order this again :-)

Nice! I just ordered this!!! Do you think it’d be good with almond milk too? Although coconut sounds pretty darn good!

Yeah almond milk would probably work well too. Soy is always a good choice as well. :-)

This tea is from a small shop near where I live. I got it as a gift for xmas last year. It is a really strong blend but I really like it. It is heavy on the cinnamon and light on the orange and I like that. Will probably go get some more once I run out. Also when I go I’ll make sure to find out what the complete blend is since I am unsure of the base tea and I’m curious. :-)

My name is Heather, it’s probably been about 4 years now since I really got into tea. I love everything about it. I am willing to try any tea once no matter how crazy the blend sounds. I discovered a lot of really good teas this way.
Tea is really a source of happiness and escape for me now. Now if I could just find a job in the tea industry I would be complete :-)
