558 Tasting Notes
Another sample from LauraR. Thanks for sending all of these wonderful samples my way.
This tea tastes exactly like it’s name. Caramel Popcorn. It’s so buttery and sweet, like a kettle corn. Unfortunately my taste buds don’t like drinking liquid sweet butter. But it smells very nice and tastes very accurate. No rating at this time.
I’ve really been falling in love with strawberry teas lately. And most recently flavored sencha’s have been in my top teas as well. This tea makes the list. Such a sweet succulent berry flavor. I will definitely be checking out more teas from Culinary teas…as soon as I make room in my cupboard. A friend at work purchased 8-10 different teas for me for my birthday, plus the recent Teavana and Harney’s orders, plus hubby took me to Teavana for more teas….I’ve got some time before I can decupboard anything. Glad I got a chance to try this tea, thanks again to LauraR and her wonderful sample package!
I love love love the cranberry flavor in this tea! It is wonderfully bright, zesty and just tart enough to be the perfect cranberry flavor. It mingles with hints of orange and a great black tea base.
In the leaves their are whole dried cranberries! I was impressed to see the dried fruit in there…I wanted to eat them. I’m not sure if they add to the taste but they made the brewing experience enjoyable. This may be my go to morning cuppa for the rest of the month…or at least the week. Very good cuppa.
backlogging from last night.
My Harney order arrived yesterday:) I didn’t get home until after 9 pm and really wanted to try one of my new teas, so this was the winner. I wanted to hit the hay after enjoying my cup of tea.
The aroma from this tea smelled like sweet cookies baking, lots of caramel goodness with wafts of rich vanilla. The liquor steeped up as dark as a caffeinated black tea, a nice amber. The taste was impressive. Sweet, but not overly fake and artificial, just a nice vanilla bean and caramel with a smooth and malty black tea taste. Very impressed by my first black tea from Harney. I am glad this tea lives up to what everyone has said about it! I found a new night time favorite.
I’ve been liking mint teas less and less lately, but this one seems to be sweet and light and very chocolatey. I received a sample from LauraR with the big sample box she sent my way. It’s very tasty and I could see purchasing this to get through dessert cravings this winter. I bet it would be good with a few chocolate marshmallows mixed in. Very chocolatey and not in a fake chocolate way. Milk chocolate and mint goodness, covers up the rooibos nicely!
Wow is this tea spicy in a cinnamon goodness way. The green tea is hardly noticeable in this blend, but that is okay because there is so much sweet spicyness going on. I made this without additives to try it out. Pretty powerful for a green tea chai blend. Impressive. Thanks LauraR for the opportunity to sample this tea!
