219 Tasting Notes
This was one of the K cup options at church and I wish I had made a coffee instead. Very disappointed on the flavor in this tea. Weak tea flavor but over powering cardamom/cinnamon flavor that was not pleasant. This was a bad choice for the end of a great tasting tea day :( This is why we need a Steepster app. I could have looked up the reviews before making my final decision :)
Went to a local restaurant for lunch today and ordered hot tea. They brought out a wooden box with many different bagged tea options. This is the one I chose. I like a good oolong. It is a woody oolong, but clean and fresh flavor. Slightly sweet on its own – no bitterness at all. I wasn’t able to find this company online, so I filled in the info from the package (which I had to take with me so I could log this ;) Found it interesting. So apparently it will make me healthy as well as beautiful and delay senility. BONUS!! Hope I don’t have any weird reactions to the tea :)

One word for this tea: AMAZING!! This tea is soooo yummy. I purchased it thanks to Azzrian’s review. So glad I did. Marshmallowy goodness. I was so happy that Della Terra restocked yesterday. Picked up 2oz of this and the Candy Cane! My bank account has really suffered this season, but somethings are worth it ;)
While at Walmart today, I picked up a bottle of this in the checkout line. Not a good decision. As I see in many of the other posts about it, it does have an off taste. I couldn’t stomach any more than 2 sips. I will not be picking up another one of these and hope this note will help you to not make the same mistake I did.
I received a sample of this with an order I placed. Since I don’t usually enjoy peppermint, I would never have chosen it myself. With that said, I am pleasantly surprised at this delicious winter treat. The peppermint flavor is subtle, blended deliciously with cocoa. This is so yummy, it may replace hot cocoa for me. Need a little peppermint pick-me-up this morning.
This is my very first Rooibos tea. I was surprised how much I liked it. I followed the directions for brewing on rooibostea.com. Also followed the suggestion of putting milk and honey in it. YUMMO! Of course I had to go buy several other flavors of this delicious caffeine-free tea. I’ve been very impressed with the teas I’ve had from Carytown Teas.
Tomorrow, I’m heading to the Dragonfly Artisan Tea Cottage in Sylvania, Ohio for lunch tomorrow. Going to check out their selection. It’s my 2011 Christmas gift from a friend. We’re finally making time to do it. Can’t wait!
2nd cup of this tea and still struggling to find the chocolate or the coconut. This tastes very similar to the almond teas I’ve tried before. While it’s a good flavored almond tea, I was looking forward to the blend of coconut and chocolate with it. I enjoy it so I’ll rate it well, but I’m a bit disappointed.
Drank so much tea yesterday, but decided I’ll just have to try them all again to post tasting notes :) Had this for a second time this morning. Really enjoy the nutty flavor. Great with a little sugar and milk (I’m obviously not a purist). Bonus: the Doctor Who reference is awesome. Weeping Angels are the scariest of the monsters, but they make a delicious tea :)
