230 Tasting Notes
I had a sachet of this at work. I am trying to go through the bits and bobs that are in my stash.
I seem to remember drinking this a few years ago when I was verrrry first getting into tea and not being too impressed. Maybe I was steeping to long or not paying attention back then. My recollection was that the pomegranate was not to juicy and the tea itself was kinda lifeless and boring.
HOWEVER, I was super impressed with this cup this afternoon. It was fruity, juicy, and really hit the spot. Maybe because this was a single wrapped tea sachet it was fresher?
If you have the same experience I had this go around this tea is lovely. I am going to try again to see if this is how this tea usually is or if I just had the exception!
I had this teabag in my stash and decided to give it a go. I have found that I actually really enjoy ceylon teas. It was light and bright, perfectly airy for sitting in my (cold ac’d) office on a sunny day.
As an aside, I truly love steepster and am happy to be back.
I THOUGHT this was day 4 of the Dammann advent calendar. REALLY it was a free sample.I put the packet down from day 4 and got them mixed up. Sorry if you see this review twice I am now posting it in the right place!
THANK YOU YSAURELLA for pointing out my mistake by making me think about why I though the tea was cherry-y!
When I opened the packet I was worried because to me it smelled almost like cherry cough syrup. I was getting some of the same smells as I waited for it to infuse.
HOWEVER, while drinking it this is a very enjoyable cup of tea. The based is delightful with the cherry and candyish notes. This is not my favorite cup nor will I reorder but I am glad I got the chance to try it!
This tea is always a YES for me. I love it so much I always come back to it. I have a bit of a dry cough and the sniffles today so I made this to help bring me health. It tastes good, the warmth is nice, but so far no magic healing.
If I didn’t have a meeting I could not reschedule I would have stayed home from work today. I’m not germing up the place but I certainly don’t feel very good.
What teas do you drink to make you feel better when the sniffles come?
I purchased a small amount of this as part of the pu’erh collection when it was 40% off at my local Davids. It seems that many tasters liked this one but all I was able to taste was an overwhelming metallic fake berry flavor. I had to dump it out. I’m not sure if I made this wrong or what but, for me this was not a winner.
The base is a pretty basic decaf. I am not HUGELY sensitive to caffeine but after 7:00PM – 8:00PM I try to switch to decaf or caffeine. The yummy thing about this tea is that DEEP vanilla flavor. I hate fake-y vanilla. Abhor it. The vanilla here is pure deep vanilla bean sweetness. This is a great caffeine free late night desert tea.
I am a huge fan of Harney and Sons Vanilla. This tea rates comparable to my old decaf favorite.
I got to try this after a trip to Tin Roof Teas while visiting North Carolina. If you get a chance to visit this tea store while in NC I highly suggest it.
I love grapefruit teas. This tea has a really nice green base. When it was first brewed and at its hottest temperature the flavor of the grapefruit was somewhat muted. As it cools the grapefruit becomes more pronounced and the flavor becomes more juicy.
This is a really nice green tea. I am so enjoying drinking this and sipping this cup. I got to visit Tin Roof Teas yesterday since I am in NC visiting my offline friend and fellow steepserite Heidi. If you are in NC and near the store you should check it out!
I received a sample of this in a long – ago swap. Swap partner – Thank you!
True to this tea being a ceylon (and true to the description) the flavor is very delicate. The color is a deep amber. I am getting a major sweet flavor. I am also tasting a slight dried fruit flavor. The flavor left in my mouth is very sweet but not cloying. This is an enjoyable tea that worked well with breakfast this morning!
