25 Tasting Notes
What is wrong with this tea? I can’t explain it. It is very artificial tasting. The smell of the dry tea makes me slightly nauseous. The taste is just off somehow. Ok, I’m getting queasy just thinking about it. Blech.
To be fair, I normally don’t like chai teas. I love this one, though, so if you prefer a traditional chai, you may hate this tea. It is light and slightly sweet with just enough spice. Great for the holidays!
I don’t think I’ve had a berry tea that I’ve ever liked. Needless to say, I didn’t have high expectations. I expected it to be bitter, overpowering, and harsh; this tea was none of those things. It reminded me of very mellow red wine. Since I only had a sample, I will definitely be going out to buy a box.
Smell: fake chocolate
Taste: at first, a hint of fake strawberry. Other than that, fake chocolate (aka carob.. I never cared for it).
It’s drinkable, but I wouldn’t buy it.
I’ve noticed this box is pretty bland so I decided to use two bags at once. Unfortunately, I waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay oversteeped it!! It’s definitely not bland, but almost undrinkable. It’s as dark as coffee and makes my mouth feel dry. It’s pretty bitter, too, but it still smells good. I think I’m going to start saving the bags and boil them to make it smell like I’ve been baking ; )
I love this tea. love it, love it, love it!! It tastes like it should have about 400 calories. It’s sweet, but not overpowering. The cinnamon and vanilla work very well together in this black tea. If a giant gooey cinnamon roll were a drink, this would be it. It’s so yummy!
Solid green tea. Not exquisite, but definitely worthy of a regular place in the pantry. Lovely green color!
Smells like a field of flowers. Tastes like green tea.
bleh. Everything about this tea reminded me of the smell of a tobacco store. I think it was the weak/fake tasting vanilla or something. Glad it was just a sample…
