716 Tasting Notes
Thanks Stephanie :)
This one is almost identical to David’s Coconut Oolong. Yum. I’d really have to have them side-by-side to decipher any difference. For now I’ll just enjoy this lovely cup of tea as I read article after article and write yet another paper.
On my second steep. I love oolongs for inspiration.
I enjoyed three steeps of this. How lovely.
Also, I’m trying to swap out everything I’m not loving before I’m gone for a month. Feel free to check out my swap posts and stuff in my cupboard if anyone’s interested. Thanks!
Thanks Faith for this one :)
I’m quite enjoying this tea. The cocoa is lovely and the chicory/licorice root (I’m guessing) adds a subtle almost-spiciness I wasn’t expecting. It more smells of cocoa than tastes of it. The backdrop is all peppermint. The ingredients work well together. The tea has a strong flavour, yet not one single ingredient overwhelms the rest.
This is one I’d consider having around to bring to work/school since it’s teabags and easier.
The resteep this morning is still quite flavourful. Yum.
Holy delicious! Wow. It must be the sugar and caramel. This could satisfy a sweet craving in one sip.
I followed the directions for 1 tbsp. of matcha, 1 cups of milk, and a few ice cubes blended. Amazing! I may have to order this. And the Coconut MATHCAccino, since I adore coconut.
I knew there was a reason I wanted to try this tea. It is so delicious. All the black teas I’ve had today have been near perfection. What an excellent tea day!
This has a lovely black base with a mixture of flavours that complement each other nicely. Like a cinnamon bun without the overwhelming sweetness – pretty much exactly like brioche. Yum!
I may have to look into ordering from American Tea Room.
Thanks jessiwrites :)
I thought I’d perhaps had this before, but it appears I have not. This is similar to Della Terra’s other black teas with peppermint and vanilla and/or chocolate. In a word, amazing. I’m not a fan of Della Terra’s black teas without mint, but the ones with mint I just can’t get enough of.
It appears my black tea aversion has been cured, as, over the last couple days all I’ve been wanting is a tasty black tea. This has been a great morning in terms of that pursuit.
The resteep of this was also successful.
This tea is quite delicious. I’ve been pining over the loss of 52Teas Raspberry Cream and this tea is just what this reminds me of, with a hint of strawberry rather than raspberry. There’s is no fakeness of overwhelming flavour – just a lovely black base with a subtle fruit taste in the background that makes for a great cup of tea. I’m just checking out Mystic Brew’s eBay store now to see if this is available.
Update: Just ordered more :) Not much makes me happier than when I can get shipping to Canada. Yay!
Thanks jessiwrites for sending me so many tea samples!
This tea is quite lovely. The black base is strong, yet not overpowering the other ingredients. There’s certainly a hint of vanilla and banana. The banana is very subtle, but it’s there. The subtlety of the banana could also be the reason there’s no fakeness to the taste. I’d consider ordering this tea for myself.
