37 Tasting Notes

Okay, I love eating the little pinapple pieces out of the tin.

Aside from the pineapple pieces, I love the overall flavour of this tea. Its fruityness is quite strong and powerful, but not too overpowering. And the dry smell is soooo good. One morning I accedentally left the lid open, and when I came home from school my entire kitchen smelled like this tea. It was quite exciting.

Uh oh! Exciting? Aren’t you afraid it’s gone stale?

Hmm… the smell of this tea sort of reminds me of Ceckmate… I guess it is the coconut. But whenever I brew tea, i like to smell the spoon after i scoop the dry leaves into the tea bag; I think the best smell is on the spoon… lol.

Anywho, I would like to start of by saying that since I love coconut and especially Pina Coladas, my expectations for this tea were so high that they were low. What I mean by this is that I didnt think this tea would match my expectations and would be a dissapointment, because I did not expect it to actually taste like pina colada. I am glad to say that this tea ACTUALLY met my expectations!!! Oh my goodness! had it iced and it had the exact aroma and flavour of pina colada. I did not expect the flavour to be that accurate! I definately tasted the coconut and pineapple, but I also got a hint of caramel. Everytime I took a sip I would turn to my friend and say “OMG this tastes AMAZING,” yeah, it was that good! I definately have to stock up on this one, I can see myself sipping this tea all year round. I cannot wait to try it hot!

100 is momentous!

Oh yes! I cannot believe how much I enjoyed this tea! I remember when I took the first sip, I said to my friend “I am so rating this 100” but my friend didnt know what I was talking about hehe

Bonnie

Good thing we don’t go around rating people. I shudder to think how God would rate me although in love that never changes and is always completely 100 or I would dispair.

I really liked this one. I am a huge fan of green teas and this one was really good. It tasted like real green tea should, not very bitter and oceanic. I think this will be my regular green tea because the price is decent, and the taste is great (:

Oh my goodness! I though I would not like this tea because the dry leaf smell really throws me off. I bought it for my sister because she does adore this tea, and I asked her if i could try some because I was sort of curious. Wow! This is a goooood tea. Oh man it tastes like an upgraded version of grocery store honey lemon tea. This will definately stay in the cupboards. I bought this tea for my sister but I have a feeling I will be drinking it all myself…

Maybe you need to follow better people ;). Don’t worry, we all lose it occasionally :D

Oh dear. I’m sorry you see my comments as rude, if I was making typos I’d want someone to correct me with a smile and not bring attention to it, but I guess that’s just me. I find the comment “no one ever reviews it” rude when it has 54 reviews, but I guess you meant that only the people you follow count. shrugs Diff’rent strokes for diff’rent folks, I suppose.

Did I miss out on something?

Was not a huge fan of this tea. Tasted bitter. Followed the steeping directions perfectly, and tried it iced. It is TERRIBLE iced, for my palat anyways. I am quite pleased with the spring collection just not this one.

Mmmmm this tastes just like a normal tea should. I get that hibiscus a lot and i do enjoy it. The mango is more of an after taste. To me this tastes more like a tea you would get in the grocery store, not loose leaf. Its really good but nothing memorable. I think this tea would be more appreciated by someone who is not so passionate about tea, if you know what I mean. It is pretty good but something I would serve to guests. Not bad with a little agave nectar.
update
I think I am going to have to bump up the rating a bit. I have a little sample pack of this from my online order and I decided I would put it in my Timolino travel mug today. Wow this tea smells so fruity, it really brightened up my day. Everyday I bring a different tea from my collection to school and my friends always ask to smell it. This one by far is the best smelling according to my friends.

Oh man did I ever think I wasnt going to like this one because I do not like jelly beans at all… I am suprized to say that I am pretty pleased with the spring 2012 collection… I didnt think I would like it but they are pretty good!
So this tea. Okay so I love coconut & hate jellybeans, lucky for me I didnt get any jellybeans in my sample pack. Oh man does this ever smell good when it is brewed. I did not expect such a nice strawberry scent. And it tastes like strawberries with a sweet hit of coconut. These flavours blend REALLY well with the red and green rooibos. Oh man its good. Strawberry is my favourite fruit and i just lovelovelove coconut. This would make a great night time tea because it is zero caffene; or just a good afternoon pick-me-up because it tastes really sweet and jolly i suppose lol. Oh no, I promised myself I would stop buying teas but I might just have to stalk up on this one… sorry mom!

Mmmmm smells good. I think I will ice some later.
Anyways, I was kinda disapointed when the spring collection came as my free samples with my online order of Southern Belle (i totally forgot i ordered 100g, thank goodness I did, i love that one)!
Back to the samplers, I decided to try daydreamer first and wow Im glad I got that sampler! I lovelovelove green tea and luckily I can actually taste the green tea in this one. I actually followed the directions properly on this one (i never follow the directions), and i wish i didnt follow them. I like my tea extra steeped, especially green teas. Anyways I do enjoy this tea and it just might have a permanent spot on my shelves. (:
Ohhhhhhh the taste of greeeeen teaaaaaaa <3

Oh this is good! Man I was nervous to try this one but now I have nothing to worry about because I think this will be a perminant tea on my shelf. Its so sweet (but not sugary) and so fruity. When I first sniffed the dry leaves it smelled strongly of cherry cough medicine. Once its brewed it has such a nice subtle cherry scent. Tastes real, not like artificial cherries! And ohhhh how it is blended with coconut (my absolute most favourite flavour in the whole entire universe) creates a balance like no other. I want to try this one iced and I hope it will have good results. ThAnK yOu DaViDsTeA! You made my life.
