24 Tasting Notes
Oh my god, this is absolute perfection. Once brewed, it tastes even better than the dry leaf smelled, which I didn’t think would be possible! It really tastes like white chocolate, real good quality white chocolate, and it isn’t too sweet at all. The white chocolate notes are almost flirty, very uplifting, and the finish almost makes me think of mint. It’s very fresh, and ridiculously delicious.
Smells AMAZING! Definitely tastes nutty—it’s absolutely delicious. I can’t think of a single bad thing to say about this tea. I’m on my second steep and it’s just as good as the first. The leaves still smell fragrant, so I might even go for a third. It’s creamy, probably from the coconut, but all the way through is just that wonderful walnut flavor. Why do I only have a sample size? :’(
Yay, my Black Friday order is here! Hearts.
Since falling in love with a peach tea blend I got once from a little middle-of-nowhere cafe, I’ve been looking all over for a peachy tea capable of kicking me in the face with flavor. This is not that tea, but that doesn’t mean it’s not lovely. It’s really balanced and nice, with the flavor swooping into delicious fruitiness just when I think the black tea is getting strong. It leaves a hint of mango on the back of my tongue after the sip—yummy!
(From momo.) It’s very minty! There’s probably more mint in this than anything else. On my first cup, I couldn’t really taste anything past the mint. Not that this is bad; unlike a pure peppermint cuppa it felt substantial enough to finish (I’m weird about plain peppermint tea this way).
I think it really shines on the second steep, though. The mint is toned way down, and I get some of that richer smokiness on the back of the sip. It’s much more balanced with less of the mint. The wet leaf smells woody and nice. A bit astringent, but I really like this second cup.
So I haven’t yet had a good experience with either a fruit-based or an herbal tea, which made me really nervous about trying this one. Turns out, there was no need to fear!
This is an absolutely delicious blend. It’s sweet and appley, very smooth with a burst of flavor on the finish. I’m definitely going to eat all of the apple chunks out of the strainer when I’m done.
