8 Tasting Notes

This tea from the February Steepster box is my first Houjicha. I find the first brew a little overwhelming in flavor, but the next steeps are great. I mostly taste the roasted grain and don’t find the cocoa flavor that others have mentioned. I like it for an afternoon tea with some shortbread cookies.

Flavors: Roasted Barley, Wood

I got a sample of this tea from Adagio as I’m looking for a more local tea to replace Murchie’s Earl Gray Cream Tea that I love. This tea isn’t as good, but I find it very drinkable. I like the vanilla note along with the bergamot.

My husband and I really enjoy this tea. We make sure to buy several packages whenever we visit Butchart Gardens to get us through until our next visit. We’ve tried other Rose teas, but have not been happy with them.

I bought this tea at my local supermarket as I enjoy both Rooibos and vanilla flavors. I found this to be a well-rounded tea that I enjoyed very much for late night sipping when I didn’t want any caffeine. I would love to have some more, but it’s on the expensive side.

I like to drink this Earl Grey when I’m in the mood for a more citrus-y Earl Grey. Drinking this tea helps me feel ‘brighter’. The tea has a good nose both in the tin and in the cup.

I LOVE this tea. It is one of my favorite Earl Grey’s (or just tea). I’m nearly out and must reorder from Murchie’s in Victoria, BC. This tea is great on a chilly afternoon while reading a book or knitting with the TV on.

I found this tea rather disappointing. I enjoy Rooibos teas and love vanilla. I didn’t really taste vanilla in this blend.

I’ve been drinking Moriartea regularly for the past four days. I find it a soothing chai without much of a bite, but then I love ginger. I will probably buy more of this because it is soothing for me.

I love tea and have several cups a day during cooler weather. I don’t like iced tea, only hot. I prefer black teas, but also enjoy other varieties depending on my mood.
