51 Tasting Notes
I must admit, Chai tea’s are not my favorite of all but this morning I was by Timmy H’s and said WHY NOT, live dangerously! This tea tasted like.. PASSION in a cup, I don’t know why I say passion, but that was the first word that came to mind when I took a sip. Why chai’s are not my cup of tea usually, is because they usually overload them with spices that I don’t really like and it just tastes like an over exasperation of flavor that by the end of the cuppa, I get bored and fed up with. This one was different, it took one flavor and stuck with it. and it wasn’t cinnamon,ginger,nutmeg,cloves,cardamom and pepper it was beyond that. They used a licorice based flavor and stuck with it the whole way through while combining it softly with nutmeg and cinnemon. I was impressed once again by timmy’s!
TART!!!!!!!!! Very Tart black tea, luckily I’m a fan of tarty teas so I enjoyed the flamboyant flavors of this black tea. As I kept sipping this tea, I noticed that it has rich flavors beyond cranberry that I can’t quite put my finger on yet. I imagine this one iced on a hot summer day like yesterday with a squeeze of lime or lemon :)
I must say I chose a bad combo of breakfast with this tea, as I had it with Nutella croissants so the chocolate and cranberry tartness was a little iffy lol but I will retry by itself.
My question to you : What do YOU think of Tart teas? Do you like them? Hate Them? Iced? Hot? I want your opinions!
A VERY OCTOBERISH TEA – This tea is unique because it has a very halloween flavor too it ( gotta try it when that time comes around ) I did drink it hot ( even though it was a million degrees outside) it was still refreshing because I’m freezing with the air conditioning inside so it evens out. The Pumpkin of this tea is like absorbed by the Rooibos and its very interesting. It has a spice to it as well ( maybe cinnemon)
I enjoyed it a lot, nothing less to expect from tim hortons, although I don’t drink coffee that often ( I did cave in to an ice capp earlier) because my mommy says it will stunt my growth and I’m still a growing boy ( 6ft 1) anyway I’m ranting.
This tea was awesome, will have again when I’m near timmy’s again! ( which might be soon because its walking distance from my house)
I’d like to thank all the steepsters/steepsterettes for the kind birthday wishes :) you rock!
I can see why they call it Piña colada, and i’m sure if it were iced it would taste just like it! I was impressed with this one, as I will have more of it as time goes on. The pinapple flavoring was more of the candied pineapple taste but the coconuttiness was just right :)
I’m going to say that the pineapple was overpowering the coconut, 90-10. which was unfortunate, nonetheless solid,eventful tea. I noticed that it was green rooibos instead of what I usually have ( red rooibos ) I just find that it has more of a tea flavor if that makes any sense, as red lets the flavor do the talking and green lets the tea do the talking.
Interesting tea, will try again.. ICED!
YES YES YES! I absolutly loved this one iced. I don’t know how it would taste hot. but iced is awesome. Firstly, its a bright pink color, kinda reminded me of pink lemonade. Then it had a nutty splash to it, but a very nutty splash. Really refreshing on a hot summer day ( unsweetened and caffeine-free) Will definately try again ICED :D I must say at first it catches you off guard with the color and nuttiness but you get used to it.
I don’t understand how people drink this stuff. Their not kidding when they say sweet. This was toooo sweet… I mean like it had some moments that had it okay, but erghhh it was kinda gross.
I knew I wasn’t going to get a healthy tea at Mc Donalds, but I mean this left a wierd taste in my mouth ( maybe because I was eating a fish filet but still haha )
Judging by other opinions, maybe they just didn’t make it right I’ll try another mc donalds in the near future and let you know.
I had this one today around lunch, and I must say it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I needed to grab something quick so it was the best solution. This tea had LOTS of sugar in it, almost 36g for the bottle which is pretty gross but the taste wasn’t bad. The problem I have with most bottled iced teas is that you can’t really taste the tea, but this one you could ( near the end of the bottle ) and it surprisingly had that PZAZZ of raspberry I was craving yesterday (LOL)
So was I content for a bottled tea, Yeah I guess so. However it was pretty sweet…..
This is one of the two iced tea’s I had today, the second was much worse, so stay tunned for that one..
For a bagged tea… Bravo! Seriously this had the perfect balance of camomile and lemon. The elegance of this tea was great and I enjoyed it. Perfect for those days where your not feeling too “bubbly”. A real mood lifter. The lemon was not too tart, and just right. The best things about tea bags are that you can’t really oversteep them ( Well you can but its not like loose leaf)
As I went on drinking this tea, I felt a little sleepy. I guess the title “dream” wasn’t so misleading. I think this blend would have been better with a twist of fruit of another kind ( like raspberry lemon camomile) just because by the end of your cuppa, you kinda feel bored with the taste of lemon and camomile. Like its good and sets you in a nice place in terms of mood, but the boringness at the end is what kills me. It needs a little more PUNCH/PZAZZ. One of the best bagged teas ive had in a while though, bravo tetley.
Camomile is really unique and great to have in tea’s although I have never seen what camomile really looks like in it’s natural habitat. It kind of looks like dandilions, the pesky things ive been plucking out of my garden all week. GRRR.
If I would rename this tea, a word I would use would be something like “ESCAPE” because my hockey team ( the habs ) lost 3-0 against the flyers this afternoon which puts them in a 3-1 hole after a great playoff run, it looks just about over. This tea helped me get my mind off it for a couple of seconds, THANKS TEA :D but now i’m reminded of it again. urghhh
