8 Tasting Notes

Clean spice, strong with no woody aftertaste. A great herbal tea when you’re in the mood for spice but don’t want to be overwhelmed with too many flavors. The blend of cardamom with cinnamon is strong without overwhelming. Great any time of day. A favorite after a rich, full meal.

Who would’ve thought cocoa and coconut would make such a great combination. But after trying all of the cocoa teas available, this one wins my undying support! Smooth, silky cocoa flavor dominates. Coconut seems to just lend a hand to the cocoa – adding full, rich flavor. Perfect mid-day cup in winter time, and for dessert any time.

Ok, but not great. It is good that the tea is Rainforest Alliance Certified. But it has a bit of grassiness in the finish and no positive characteristics to make up for it.

Gentle, creamy sweetness. Wonderful with a bit of honey and milk. As I always do with my teas, I blend this with a base tea (like an Assam or English Breakfast) to get just the right level of flavor – tea ratio for my tastes. But out of all the flavored teas I’ve tried so far, this one seems to have the most staying power. I have this one as part of my morning blend nearly every day.

Blow you away bold! Love the smoky Pu-erh and the way the coconut rounds it out a bit. Because this is so strong, I don’t drink it as is. I always blend it in with a more subtle black tea. But I really love the way this one adds depth and character to other teas. If you like to blend, try adding this with richer flavored teas and avoid trying to use with a fruity tea.

Not my cup of tea. Has an interesting hint of pineapple, but just too grassy for my tastes. Perhaps an Oolong lover would enjoy it. Seemed to use good quality leaves, full and fresh.

Favorite hiking tea! Best blended down. A bit too overpowering straight, but wonderful if you blend down by half with a base tea like a simple breakfast tea or Assam. The spice is well balanced with the orange peel and cloves.

Bring it on! This tea has depth, some smokiness, but not too much. I use this one as a base tea and blend in some smoother flavored teas like a Hazelnut or Creme Brûlée tea. The Four Horsemen can easily stand on its own, but I love the way it kicks up the flavor on other loose leaf teas.
