26 Tasting Notes

Coming from someone who generally abhors the taste of ginger, you’ll be surprised to find that my review of this tea is overwhelmingly positive. I gave it a shot because it was a blend, thought maybe the Ginger would not be too intense. Unread I found myself drinking a tea with a one- two punch of flavors, very sequential, with a flavorful first taste and a powerful Ginger aftertaste. The Ginger was not the painful spiciness I was expecting, but a smooth kind of spicy, agreeable and warming.

This is a staple in our home during cold season now, and is excellent for someone with an upset stomach but an aversion to straight Ginger tea or chews.

No matter you opinions of Ginger, this tea is an exciting experience- the second wave of flavor packs such a punch you might get teased for making faces. A very, very exciting tea- and I can’t say I call tea “exciting” very often.

Wow. This is easily one of my new favorite teas. I’ll admit that I already love chamomile, but the citrus is a perfect addition. Neither flavor is too strong, and unlike a lot of herb/fruit combinations I’ve tried where the flavors come sequentially, they arrive together for a unique taste that doesn’t separate. Overall it’s a warm flavor that’s muted but not dull. I recommend it to everyone and its a new family favorite around here.

A delicious tea, with contrasting qualities that provides for a delightful drinking experience. The warm, gentle flavor of the rooibos comes first and then an incredibly pleasant, bright citrus aftertaste. Both were very gentle flavors. I’ve never been a rooibos fan, but this is a lovely tea I could easily introduce into my menu. I think it would go well with a sweet desert or some fruit.

A wonderful blend. As someone who is not partial to rooibos or chai, I found both flavors to blend nicely and neither is overwhelming. It’s a fantastically warm tea, a nice spicy flavor without being tart or offensive. For someone looking for a caffeine free tea, this is a great option that is full of flavor- sweet with dark warm aftertastes.

A gentle, relaxing tea with a very very warm flavor. More powerful with a longer steep, but still tops off before reaching any kind of “strong” flavor.

I’m actually pretty fond of this tea. Recommended for relief of menstrual symptoms, I actually drink this regularly when I want something very light and gentle. A really unassuming tea, I don’t think you’d buy it for the taste (it’s very gentle, but not bland), but that shouldn’t drive you away.

“Organic Raspberry Leaf tea supports the female system* by aiding healthy menstruation as well as toning the uterus.” – Oh great something else that I probably need to work on toning. :))

drank HarSha by Harney & Sons

Tasted this tea at the H&S Flagship store last weekend. Lives up to the hype! A full-bodied, sophisticated, deep-flavored tea, HarSha is the most whole, rich breakfast tea I’ve ever tasted.

Full, but never heavy, HarSha will fill you up but not weigh you down.

I’m not a big fan of the English breakfast variety because of the richness, heaviness, and bitterness. But this one lacks all the qualities I dislike about English Breakfast blends. If you’re a fan of that type of tea, and want something that will make you feel rich enough to afford the most delicious tea in the world, this is the one you want to fulfill your fantasy. =)

A fantastic tea! I was not let down! The almond is a fantastic, smoothing flavor, holding together quite a list of other tastes. White tea, vanilla, cardamom and a bit of chamomile makes this a warm, soothing morning or evening tea!

Looking for a Christmas tea, H&S “Holiday Tea” let me down last year because it was too strong and spicy. This White Christmas is everything “Holiday Tea” was not! A delightful winter tea!

A really delicious tea, but don’t let it steep too long. The flavors (White/Vanilla/Grapefruit) don’t seem to go together quite as well as the White Christmas Tea (White/Vanilla/Almond.) I thought the Grapefruit was an exciting kick, though.

My favorite Jasmine, not too bitter if you don’t steep too long. It’s simple and warm, something I love to have when I can’t make up my mind about what to drink.
