48 Tasting Notes
Ok first I’m not a fan of pu’erh the muddy and fishy taste is really not my thing so i decided to do a 5 seconds wash before steeping it for 4 minutes.
I think it really helped with the fish after taste.
It’s actually a tea I could have like because the mint and cinnamin was really well balanced but there was a strange after taste and it was all i could remember after each sip so I after reading the the tea description it hit me. The licorice ! Nooooo that same annoying after taste as the disgusting (in my opinion) Bravissimo (but really less… Intense).
Again thr licorice killed it for me i will niw have to accept that licorice in tea is something i will never like. Oh well.
But really not a bad pu’erh but also doesn’t taste like a typical pu’erh ( but hey I’m not a pu’erh specialist so correct me if I’m wrong.)
Oh and i decided to add a dash of milk at the end and i think it brimg out the creaminess a little.
I usually like citrus and earl grey but i’m really not a fan of this tea i steeped it for 2.50 minutes at 94. Degrees water and it was really bitter. The taste was really strong. To be honest the taste reminded me of citrus shower gel….i don’t know if i did something wrong because everyone seems to like this tea and the light taste of the tea (really not the cup i got tonight :S)

I finally decided to get a full bag of this tea! Thank god!!!
I was really surprise to like the little sample I got a while back but was always forgetting about this one when I was ordering tea. Now I don’t know what I would do without it… It’s now my comfort tea. Every time I need a tea to relax but without feeling to sleepy I reach for this one and I’m never disapointed.
I love the coconut in this tea it’s giving it a lot of creaminess which i really enjoy and the lavender mix really well with kind of balancing it and adding to the relaxing feeling.
The rooibos doesn’t taste too strong (I know I said it a couple of time but I’m really not a fan of red rooibos) and the fact that there’s a lot of anti-oxydant in it make me feel good about drinking this tea ;)
And as always I forgot my tea strainer in it for almost 15 minutes and it’s still tasting amazing!
Wow I really like this tea, I think I’ll be drinking this tea more (I usually drink Snow Bunny as my night time tea but… black tea isn’t the best before bed).
I decide to get this tea reading all the good review but I usually don’t like red rooibos I was really surprise to like it I think it is also because this one doesn’t have the weird after taste most red rooibos have.
The color is a beautiful and rich amber and the taste is really nice. Not to sweet and perfect without adding any sweetener to it!
I don’t know why but i was thinking this tea would be more spicy but I think the flavors mix well together.
And like everyone else said, it smell like Amaretto but I don’t think it taste amaretto that much I don’t really taste the almond flavor.. Maybe it’s just me, maybe the next cup will be different.

Not so sure about this one, I know everyone all seems to love it but.. Something with the smell and taste is really bugging me… And It is way too sweet for me and i’m only seeing like 2 tiny little piece of green tea in it…:S
Made me realise that I prefer sweet tea with fruit flavor rather then just maple or caramel or chocolate taste… Well I’ll keep that in mind until I find a sweet tea ( not a fruity one) I really like.
I’m so glad I decided to get some of this tea this sunday. It was suggested by an employe of DT because there was no CopaBanana anymore (but there is still some since tonight… so all of you copabanana fan, go order some before it’s sold out for real!!! ).
The flavor is kind of mild but just enough for my taste, I can taste the banana at the end of the sip and a little bit of the walnuts ( not that much … I thought it would taste more nutty.. maybe there was not enough walnut piece in my 1.5 spoon of tea?..)
I had a crazy morning at the clinic this morning and was running all over the place so I forgot my tea and steeped it for more than 30 minutes and it was still really good, the black tea was not that bitter and the banana flavor was more powerful).
I just bought 30g of this so I’ll probably order some more soon.
So I tried this tea in store today… Thank you 1$ straight tea promo I finally had a chance to taste this tea. It’s been on my wishlist since forever.
I’m kind of tired so this review will be short… WOW! This is all i’m gonna say, i’m resteeping it right now so maybe another review tomorrow! (But a little bit oversteeped)

I’m so glad that I bought this tea for my Boy friend and not for myself because.. well… I HATE it…:S!
It reminds me of fish oil.. The smell, the taste, the color everything, and I hate fish oil with all my heart!!!
On the other side, my boyfriend really like it, he’s able the taste the ginger and the pu-erh and think I’m crazy with my fish oil thing (hehe so maybe it’s just me).
Because of this I won’t rate this tea, maybe it’s just really not my thing.
This is really good, not bitter at all. It remind me of the taste of a really good green tea, a little bit sweet and no bitterness.I’m really glad I have read the other review and decided to get some with my last DT purchase.
And it is good for your health!
This tea is not my favorite. Doesn’t remind me of creme brulée at all…
I’ll drink it anyway because all my desert tea are actual tea (black or green) and this one have rooibos as a base so it is ok for an evening tea. Not one I’ll restock.
The flavor is really weak, but it is ok if I add cane sugar and milk. OK but not amazing.
I think I may just be really difficult with desert tea. I still need to find one I find spectacular. Any suggestion?

I did a lot of cleaning today and was pretty exausted and dehydrated so this tea was perfect. (Also because I always forget to remove the strainer when I’m cleaning and this tea is really good even if I forget and let it steep for 5-10 or 30 minutes)
It’s my favorite ‘’refreshing tea’’.
It is super good, it is like drinking juice but without tasting really fake and sweet.
The green rooibos is really perfect and make me feel like i’m having a treat without feeling guilty because I know it is good for me ;).
The only thing is that it is not as good the second steep, the flavor is really weak.
It’s one of the tea I always have in my cupboard!
This tea was in my shopping list since a long time and I finally bought it today!
It’s amazing! It’s now my second cup of this tea for tonight (I steeped it twice and it was still really good!). The flavor is perfect, buttery, rum-y(?) and strong. I don’t like black flavored tea when there’s just a hint of the said flavor. This one really hit the spot!!!
I added a dash of white rum ( I would have prefer brown but I don’t have any right now), some cane sugar and half a teaspoon of coffe mate ( I know strange… but delicious!) and it taste SO good.
The color really remind me of brown rum, a rich gold/amber color!
And I did it in my new perfect mug from DT (the clear one with the stainless stell strainer) I love clear mug when I drink my tea and the strainer is really good too!!
I went to DT today and bought so much stuff they gave me the tea of the day for free . Yay!
I was sure I wouldn’t like it because I usually don’t like banana (especially the articial banana flavor) but to my surprise it was really good.
It tasted like banana but not as much as I thought it would and it was not too sweet just .. the perfect kind of sweetness ;).
There was also a really good nutty after taste and a hint of coconut.
I’m now thinking about maybe getting some to try at home. What a surprise… Me and a banana flavored tea!
The only thing is that is was a little bit weak but maybe it’s the way the steep it in store.. I know it often happen with the tea of the day… :S
