557 Tasting Notes
Tropical flavored rooibos and caffiene free. Nice and sweet with out being too much so. I prefer Teavana’s Zingiber Ginger Coconut and art of teas dessert line over this, but will finish what’s left in the sample pack I purchased.
This tea smells of sweet ripe currants and spicy cardamom. It tastes green, almost like a lighter green tea, but it is green rooibos. There is light currant flavor and overtones of cardamom that tingle the throat after continuous sips. I really enjoy the lightness to this tea/tisane. I really like how well RoT does green rooibos.
I was going to pick up Chocolate Ginger and the Blood Orange Chocolate red teas but I’ve heard disappointing things about RoT’s chocolate teas, so I passed…even though they are limited additions at World Market….well, the chocolate ginger red tea is, I’m not 100% on the Blood Orange Chocolate tea. World Market has so many amazing foods, treats and housewares I love taking a trip there! I just wish more were open near me, most of them have closed :(
Planning on finishing the last five bags of this tea today. I’d like to decupboard a tea today as I am heading to World Market to use two coupons and hoping to find some seasonal teas leftover.
I have only good things to say about this tea. I’ve had it hot, iced, with milk and sugar, plain and it is great every time. Impressed with the size of Zhena’s bagged teas. May venture out to a new flavor today.
Approaching the end of this tin. Makes me sad, this is so good, I can’t believe it was hiding in the back of my cupboard for so long:(
Had a big pot of this last night while watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. We’re trying to watch all of the previous Harry Potter’s before the new one comes out. It’s so fun to see them so young again. I haven’t seen these beginning years since they first came out!
This tea kept me awake through the film, my hubby still fell asleep. I enjoy the tart cranberries in this tea so much!
Thank you Ashmanra for sending me a sample of this and two other Harney teas. The mail man delivered the goodies today and this had to be my first choice to sample.
The dried tea smells like sweet honeyed black tea and candied fruit. Maybe berries? Reminds me of candied fruits you find around at christmas time.
The taste is has a hint of bergamot, a great tea taste and hints of candied sweetened fruits as I sip. I can’t place any individiual fruit taste, but I really enjoy this tea. It reminds me of the likes of Dammann Freres and Mariage Freres teas. The tea tastes expensive…it is great tea with great flavoring added.
I’ll be heading to B and N to see if they have more of this tea, otherwise I will have to place another Harney soon! Thanks again Ashmanra.
I thought Jasmine teas weren’t for me until I tried this tea. The jasmine isn’t cloying as it can become in many blends. It is light and sweet instead of heavy and perfume ladden. The green tea base is just the smooth soft tea base the jasmine needs to shine. This is getting added to my shopping list.
This wasn’t working for me this time around. The flavors smelled nice and melded together well, but the sencha base is very spinachy. Just not what I was in the mood for today.
