5 Tasting Notes

This is a great, light-tasting green tea. My first sip seemed a bit sour—cleaned my palate after a fruity breakfast—and every sip after that was clean green tea with cherry undertones. The scent of the tea is fantastic and the floral notes are extremely subtle, which is a plus in my opinion because I’m not too fond of florals, especially rose. The aftertaste is very pleasant and the combination of flavors feels very complete to me.

I think this would be even more excellent with a bit of raw honey and I think it would make a great iced tea, as well.

This is a really interested blend of flavors. The tea has a very intense rooibos scent mixed with sweetness, but the first sips of the tea are mild and nutty. There is a slight sweet aftertaste, but steeping for 5 minutes did not really bring much sweetness into the flavor. The rooibos aftertaste eventually becomes prominent and lingers. About halfway through the cup I added a little condensed milk to see how dairy and sweetness would affect the taste, and it started to turn in the direction of what I might actually call a dessert tea. This is one that I definitely intend to spend more time with to get a better idea of the flavor and how it might vary in different conditions.

The flavor given to this green tea is very subtle, so it doesn’t taste dramatically different when compared to an unflavored green tea. It’s good for a cup of tea that you want to passively enjoy without getting too carried away by the flavor. The fact that it’s organic is definitely a bonus.

This is a tea that I enjoy every once and awhile, which was initially a surprise since I’m not too keen on licorice. The mint is the first thing to stand out, and the sweetness of the licorice doesn’t really surface until you take a breath between sips, though I do find that the closer I get to finishing a cup (or the longer I let it steep) the more prominent that flavor becomes. All in all, a pleasant blend to enjoy from time to time. I should try preparing it to the specifications and see how much the taste differs.

First cup of the day enjoyed after a simple breakfast. It was the last in the tin, so I assume my mom must have quite enjoyed it. The flavors weren’t as distinct as I was expecting—even after letting it steep for several minutes—but it was still enjoyable. Afterward I checked the container and the “best used by” date was long passed, so perhaps that’s why. I recommend it nonetheless.
