34 Tasting Notes

I’m surprised that I wasn’t crazy about this tea as I was so anxious to try it given all the rave review I’ve gotten about it from fellow tea drinkers.
The tea itself is gorgeous to look at and smells fabulous in the tin. It remindes me of a really good darjeeling in smell. When I first smelled it I was actually more excited to try it!
I may have oversteeped it at around 5 minutes?
It had an almost “green” taste at first, but then I did pick up the caramel. I didn’t think it had any maltiness and I didn’t find it to be a medium bodied tea, I would say it’s a lighter tea. It is smooth, not bitter at all. I didn’t think it paired well with the cookies I had it with.
I am going to try it again with a lesser steep time and pair it instead with fresh fruit.

My Mom LOVES this tea. She kind of turned me onto it. When I’m feeling lazy and don’t want to brew a loose tea I will sometimes throw this into a mug and brew it up. It tastes best with milk and sugar of course. I’m never unhappy with this tea it totally does NOT suck.

This is an alright tea. Kind of bland, but not so bland that it would be considered tasteless. It’s kind of a light floraly sort of flavor. Not bitter at all, and tastes nice with a bit of honey. I wouldn’t recommend it, but if you happen to come across it somewhere give it a try.

I was surprised by this tea! I got it as a gift and was expecting it to be just “ok” but it was nice. When I’m out of my 2nd flush darjeeling I brew this one until more of my favorite arrives in the mail… And I’m never unhappy with it. :)

Just bought this – still on the search for a quick and easy chai… this is not great, but doesn’t totally suck. It’s kind of weak. You have to drink it really hot, because as it cools the flavor changes and gets kind of icky.

YUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bought a box – what was I thinking??

Never again. It tasted like what would happen if you licked the shelf in a spice closet and chased it with hot water.

This tea fell short of my expectations. It smells great in the tin, but when you brew it the flavor is kind of like a watered down “red hot”… (those little red cinammon candies).
So I’d rate this tea as “meh”
Gave it away.

Bought it, thinking I would like it – no LOVE it, as I love all things coconut… It was kind of like flavored (almost) hot water.
Gave it away.
Still seeking a yummy coconut tea.

Not as veggie tasting as other green teas I’ve tried. Kind of floraly.
