354 Tasting Notes
The first time I tried this tea months ago I really wasn’t too sure. I got some teas in from jessiwrites a couple weeks ago and I requested this one to try again.
Perhaps it was the batch I ordered, but this cup is much better. I’m generally not huge on mint unless I’ve got an upset stomach, but the mint paired with the marshmallow leaf makes it much less overwhelming, and more to my taste. The chocolate is a nice, light addition.
I’m so happy I gave this one another go. I have a feeling this will go into my next Butiki order.
KellyxLee added a few teas into her recent TeaCupany order for me and this was one of them. This is definitely the one I enjoy the most, though it is really a different tea.
The spices aren’t overwhelming, or too chai-like, which is delightful. The sweet potato flavour is really there too. The flavours just seem to compliment each other to create this awesome tea. I don’t think I could drink this all the time, but I certainly wouldn’t turn down a cup.
This tea is such a delight. I’m so happy I noticed Jaclyn’s review of it, and remembered it when I placed my S&V order. The smallest size available was 4 oz., which I originally thought was a bit much, but seeing as I have only two herbals in my cupboard, I’m actually going through this somewhat quickly.
I may slightly prefer this one over Cocomint Cream, purely because of the unsweetened coconut. I recall towards the end of my Cocomint Cream package, being overwhelmed by the sweetness.
My stomach is a wee bit upset tonight, so hopefully all the mint here will work some magic. I’ve decided to take this night off from the excessive amount of studying I’ve been doing. I will probably regret that decision tomorrow, but I’ve had weeks and weeks of 12-15 hour days at school and my brain needs a break. Therefore, I’m catching up on tea and re-watching Heroes. Star Trek is next, yes!
CHAroma shared this one with me :)
I’m actually quite enjoying this blend. The pumpkin is really lovely, though I’m not really getting toffee. I don’t generally go for greens, but I’m looking forward to a resteep.
Rest in peace Nelson Mandela. Truly an inspiration.
Thanks KellyxLee for sending some of this along!
This is a great mint black tea. It’s fresh. Yet, it also has this almost buttery quality. I’m impressed with this one. Kelly sent me a bunch of samples from TeaCupany so we shall see if I’m impressed enough to place my own order.
Also, I’ve been writing a paper all day, and I just remembered I have a physics reflection due at midnight, but of course I would leave my physics textbook at school. Errg. I contemplated driving down to school, but there’s a line. I have spent many a Saturday, Sunday, and holiday at school, but I just can’t bring myself to drive down there at this hour.
KellyxLee sent this my way :)
It’s always nice to have some herbal options, something I’ve been seriously lacking in lately. This is a decent herbal. It’s more tart than sweet, though that doesn’t bother me at all. I have a feeling this would be a little better chilled, I’m finding it slightly lacking in flavour. The directions gave a steeping time of 5-10 minutes, and I steeped for 7. Perhaps a longer steeping time would fix that. Hmm.
I have come to the realization that S&V does dessert teas well. Quite well actually. I was sitting here sipping away at this, and next thing I know, it’s gone.
This was very tasty. Not overly sweet, but sweet enough. For some reason it was reminding me of Maple Pecan Oolong in the last few sips, but I have a feeling that’s because I just read a tea note on that tea haha. I may have to make another cup and update this note.
I wrote an exam this morning, and I had a few hours that I could spare away from studying to clean and get groceries and book appointments. I can’t wait until my life slows down just a tad.
Anyway, this is a sipdown! In preparation for my new Butiki order that will be en route soon enough! I am enjoying this with some delicious smørrebrød before heading back to school for extra lab time.
I hope all my American tea friends had a lovely Thanksgiving!
Heyo! The scent of lime when I cut open the package nearly knocked me over. That may have made me a wee bit wary, especially since I’ve been so impressed with Herbal Infusions’ natural, absolutely no artificialness teas.
However, now that’s it’s cooled sufficiently to drink, it’s still got that natural goodness. The lime is quite a bit more toned down now that it’s steeped and the Ceylon base really comes through. I’m really enjoying this one, though I’m not getting much coconut flavour at all. The lime with the black base is really neat though.
