63 Tasting Notes
Beautiful! This cup has a supreme concept. Black tea with raspberry, cherry, strawberry, and red currant. The black tea is medium bodied and the balance of fruits is perfect. My only complaint is that it’s always sold out.
I prefer to drink black chais neat (nothing added) and this one is smooth and flavorful. The balance of ingredients is perfect. Unlike other chais they don’t use too much black pepper. They use an Indian black tea and the flavor is wonderful. I really tasted the cardamon which is very nice. I imagine this cup is sublime made in a pan with milk.
A beautiful, elegant, and outstanding cup. This is a Ceylon Earl Grey with a sweet flavor and mellow body. I love Earl Greys that are “juicy”, and this is one is exceptional. The bergamot flavor is sublime. This tea calls to me throughout the day, and during all four seasons.
I thought this cup was tepid. A fine idea, but it doesn’t deliver. The flavors of cranberry and blood orange are dismally minimal. The black tea base didn’t do anything for me. Usually teas from The Republic of Tea vanish in a few days (in my house) but this sat. I’d be very eager and best pleased to try a loose-leaf version of this if they will make one. Maybe that will make a difference.
This is the best tea bag herbal I’ve ever found. The taste is of caramel and vanilla. They advertise cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves as the ingredients but there must be secret ingredients because this is outstanding. Profoundly exotic with a smile-inducing flavor and a powerful aroma. My mother smelled the aroma coming from the cup and said “ooooh what is that?”.
A very delicious and clever cup! This is a berry, ginger, cinnamon, and sweet piquanté pepper blend. This is a tea-bag and it’s very satisfying. This one is my favorite of Celestial Seasonings’ red teas.
This is a delicious redbush vanilla at a fair price. The velvety “red tea” is satisfying and the vanilla is inviting.
This cup is advertised as a nutty and chocolate mate, but I thought the flavor was too light. I brewed two bags at once to really taste it. That makes this cup expensive. I will try the loose-leaf version to see if it’s better.
This peppermint herbal (from Oregon) has an exquisite and sweet taste. Some peppermint teas taste like a stale candy cane, but this one is delicious and refreshing. The aroma is wonderful. Expensive but tasty.
The black tea is between light and medium bodied, with a fruity and floral taste. It is advertised as a fruity black tea with lemony bergamot, but I didn’t taste the lemony bergamot. I must point out I bought this on sale. It might have been “sitting there”. I will try this again and I’ll avoid “on sale” tea.
