66 Tasting Notes
Love this “tea”… The dry smell is delicious, it is like taking a whiff of an apple pie. The taste might even be better. I can definitely get the apples and the almonds. I also love that is is caffeine-free. A perfect evening treat. Oh and the brewed color is this wonderful shade of pink. Funny enough this tea made me buy a see through glass mug, just so I can see the liquid.
Having this right now… The brewed color is amazing. A deep rich red. The dry smell is really nice, I can really smell the lemongrass. First taste… not bad. Its light and refreshing. I think it would be really great cold, but I am not a fan of iced tea. Its okay hot, I don’t mind it at all… yet I don’t think I would buy it again.
I really like this one. I can taste the almonds with a hint of chocolate. I see that it is also supposed to have a raspberry taste, but I did not get that. I would buy this again.
Having this again… I am going to increase its rating… it is really good. As soon as I opened the bag I got an awesome hit of the chocolate. I even think I smelled the energy from the mate. Okay, so the later might just be a placebo effect, but it is true, the smell made me feel energized. I need to buy more of it as I am now on my last cup.
I don’t know how I feel about this tea. I love the smell, you can really smell the orange and chocolate. The taste however, is not always great. The first time I did it I thought it tasted weak. You could get hints of both the chocolate and orange, but not enough to make me giddy. The second time I think I over-steeped, making it taste bitter. I don’t hate it but I won’t be buying it again.
My first tasting note… I was introduced to this obsession, er.. loose leaf tea on Christmas day when my husband bought me my first steeper. Something changed in me that day I went from being a coffee drinker to being a tea drinker. I have 15 different teas in my cupboard and it has only been 4 weeks. Okay, so lets start with this tea. I love the smell, it is peppery and chocolatey. It is my favorite thus far. I love the heat you get when you take a sip. The first thing you taste is the chocolate and then bam, you get the heat. It is a perfect tea for the cold Canadian winters.
