Wow this is really nice. Malty, but when you add milk it really reminds me of chocolate and I’ve never had a plain black that has done that before.

… there’s almost no flavor… I taste milk… and it’s brown but I don’t think this tea is tea
It’s more like colored water that smells like vanilla

This is a very heavy jasmine tea. The scent is heavy and the mouth feel is heavy so that they seem to match in weight making the strength seem appropriate.
I’m pretty sure there is a hint of spice from the tea base to which is really neat. Like the way arugula is spicy so I know plants can exhibit that flavor. Never expected that from a tea base but it makes the whole blend exciting!

woah gross!
totally and completely gross… I’m gonna go try this again… maybe I screwed up some how… but right now it tastes like oranges and butter
brewed the next cup without honey and instead used plain sugar… better.
It still tastes gross though.

0.0 it’s so good. It almost tastes like it has marshmallows in it. It doesn’t need milk or anything.
It’s smooth and sweet and wow and my sample is gone and I think I’m going to cry since it only got here yesterday.
Did I mention smooth? It almost feels like I’m drinking silk. The mouth feel is just enough to let you know it’s not water but it’s not heavy at all.
And really really… I thought there was fruit in it. I’ve been tricked! I would have sworn there was fruit in it.. not a lot… but a dusting of fruit maybe.
I feel like this tea is hugging me.

I have been eager to try some stuff from TeaFrog…heard a lot about it! This just adds more interest to the TeaFrog list in my book! Neat!

Madison Bartholemew

DUDE! If I had any left I would gladly send it to you… but what I opened last night I"VE JUST FINISHED! not even 24 hours! How is that possible? 2$ samples! OMGosh! The horror! how is it gone already!

TeaEqualsBliss

hahahaha! I totally understand! :) Which others have you tried from TeaFrogs!?

hmm this really really tastes like Tea! I know that should be kinda obvious but with the list of flavors I was expecting the tea part to be mostly covered up.
and the rose flavor is barely there!
wow… this is light and subtle but the flavor really pops for a white. the coconut and the vanilla go very well together (obviously) but don’t cover up the tea… awesome.
Although I don’t know why the listing here on steepster has blueberry on it. My sample pack does not say blueberry and I don’t taste any either

Anyways. This is a deep earthy blend with a mint pick me up at the end. They use a roasted mate so the base has those kinds of deep earthy qualities that are accented well by chocolate. The chocolate and mate do become pretty indistinguishable from one another as the brew cools but I thinks that’s pretty expected considering it is a bag tea so they couldn’t put any REAL chocolate in. The mate does retain that mineral earthiness under the chocolate tones which is nice because it makes you know you’re getting the actual mate flavor instead of just flavoring that exists on top of it.

This is the second tea I’ve tried that blends a pepper mint with a toasty flavor base and I really think that this is a great flavor combination in general. It lets your mouth feel refreshed after drinking what admittedly is a very gritty tea. I always think mates taste great while I’m drinking them but leave me feeling like I want to brush my teeth. I know, I’m weird. The mint at the end does help stave off that feeling and perks up the flavor profile nicely.

drank Mango by Bentley's
154 tasting notes

This is very pleasant for a bagged tea and doesn’t get sour like some fruit bagged teas I’ve tried. That’s pretty awesome actually. The mango flavor is subtle but present and lightly sweet. If you want an adventurous flavor slap in this face this isn’t it. But it does taste like a real mango and the mango flavor doesn’t degrade as the tea gets cold so good job Bentley’s.

As for the green tea base… it’s got a little astringent kick… the mellowness of the green tea comes through and the flavor is rich and buttery which goes nice with the mango but at the end there is a little tiny annoying kick. Kinda like lipton bagged green but no where near as bad and it didn’t show up until the tea began to cool down. So not such a big deal just drink this one hot and enjoy it.
But would I buy it again… eh… prolly not

This is sooo good. So good it got me wondering what a Kava is and where can I invest in some to roll around in happily with my truck of coconuts and barn of dairy cows.

The roasted mate and rooibos give this tea a round earthy base that is smoothed out by the coconut and the cream. Together it reminds me of toasted coconut candies. I’m still not sure what kava tastes like but this has a note of something sweet. I just looked up what kava tastes like naturally and that appears to be saw dust so that is not what ever is sweet. But in any event this is the best bagged tea I’ve had. They flavors compliment perfectly.

I LOVE this tea.

Last time I tried anything with Kava I couldn’t think straight for about 2 or 3 hours! This won’t be a tea that I will try. Ever since then, I avoid Kava. It was like being drunk, but not in a good way.

Micah

That sounds wonderful!

@fcmonroe Both coffee and cigarettes have given me similar experiences… not fun. I try to avoid both in the evening if I’m already feeling tired. Thankfully, tea has never done that to me.

LENA

Wow…yum! This sounds worth a try. Also, I like the name Tiger Wing Tea. I’m such a sucker for cool packaging and labels.

Madison Bartholemew

@LENA … yes YUM YUM YUM and they have the funnest packaging I’ve seen in a long time. Totally awesome.
@fcmonroe you’re right apparently kava actually can mess with the chemicals in your brain so I’m surprised more people don’t understand to be cautious.

Madison Bartholemew

CHAroma… I am only going to say this once. I will be deleting your comment.

It is rude beyond imagining to imply that I am STUPID enough to not look at what I am putting into my body before I drink it. And I will now imply that you are quite silly for buying it before the research and therefore being shocked by the medical implications.

And secondly, how dare you link to your, must be more useful, post of a vaguely related tea with one common ingredient. Quit fear mongering about ingredients and experience something.

I fear death and leaving a pristine corpse. Mine will be mangled and I will enjoy every second of it.

CHAroma

Sorry for trying to spread facts about a tea that could hurt you. Next time I’ll let you suffer your mangled corpse in peace.
