84 Tasting Notes
i just got this in today and was VERY excited to try it. sadly i had to wait all day. the dry leaves smell very creamy and you can smell the candy bits. the color of the tea itself is a dark amber thats a bit murkey from the chocolate. usually i dont like chocolaty teas but wow this one is delicious! its probably because of the melted toffee. i can see this super stuffed package going quick :) all the flavors work very well with each other making it a very good flavored tea.
the scent of the dry leaves is VERY inviting, its sweet and floral with a hint of malty-ness. the tea smells less floral that the dry leaves. the tea is am amazing amber color. the flavor is nice, and peppery. i really like that peppery taste! the end flavor is a malty honey taste that rounds this tea out nicely. i added 1/2 of my normal sugar toit because the pepperyness is prefect for me. this is very good with a bit of cadbury milk chocolate :)
so sprained my ankle yesterday and ive been laying around like a bum after i got back from the doctors. my fiancee made me a cup of this with my lunch today. i remember liking this more when i first tried it….maybe its all the other amazing tea samples ive been trying that have made others seem a bit fake tasting. its still not bad but there is something about it i dont like. the scent is very cinnamon-y which gets me excited to take a sip but the flavor is a bit flat in the cinnamon department. its sweet in a splenda kind of way (i hate “diet” sweeteners and know too much medical stuff to ever voluntarily eat/drink it) i sadly couldn’t finish the cup because i got distracted and this tea is terrible cold
this one is very sweet and candy like. you can taste the burnt sugar flavor in it mixed with the flavor of the tea. so far most of my GM samples have not disappointed me in the least! (besides that jasmine pearls) i don know if i will be getting a larger package of this but i will miss it when im looking for that burnt sugar flavor i love.
holy honey! its has that distinct honey flavor with the back note the pear taste. the tongue feel reminds me of a juicy pear as well. it smells so much like hot honey. im very happy with this sampler.
ok ive been wanting to try a jasmine tea for a while now and the sample was 0.99$ how could i go wrong? the leaves/balls smell nice they are not strong at all like i had expected them to be and there cute little pebbles :) they looked really cool opening up in the hot water. the smell of the wetl eaves and tea….they remind me of those foam tub toy blocks i had as a child that stick to the wall when their wet. i tasted it unsweetened and it had almost no flavor so i added my normal amount of sugar and well…it tastes like it smells…i dont think i like jasmine tea….i will try others because i dont want to compleatly close that door. the tea itself is yellow which i didnt expect either but it is very pretty.
wow is this chocolaty! its a dark murky tea but the amount is chocolate pieces in the dry leaves is like looking into a bag of trail mix. the dry leaves smell like baking chocolate! the wet leaves dont really smell all that interesting. with this unsweetened it tastes like bittersweet drinking chocolate mixed with tea. i dont get a cream taste. i prefer milk chocolate so im not sipping this as fast as i thought i would. ill finish my sample but i dont hink i will be ordering more
the only reason this didnt get a 100 is because i wanted more watermelon flavor but its amazing! The dry leaves didnt smell too good and reminded me of adagios white pear so i was a bit confused. as soon as i poured water over the leaves it was all melon! <3 the scent of the tea is honeydew and watermelon rind where the taste is cantaloupe with the tea flavor. i LOVE melons all kinds so this is like a nice winter treat! i will more than likely buy a bigger container of this but i have 1 cup left in my sample so we will see (and i plan to resteep the leaves i used for this cup) every time i sip i find more things i like about this!! :D
im speechless! this tea is amazing! it is liquid cookie! the scent you can pick up the cinnamon but also the almond. no flavor over powers the other they play along with each other nicely. its very sweet but i like that alot :)
it smells and tastes like candy. its very sweet on its own. its a very comforting flavor. the caramel is subtle but up front where the black tea flavor is strong but smooth. i dont think i will purchase a larger package but i will finish this sample with a smile :D
