69 Tasting Notes
If you loved SpecialTeas Lemon Chiffon, then this might be a great replacement. I did love it and I miss it. The primary difference between the two is that this one features green rooibos instead of red, which might please some folks. It is creamy lemon deliciousness. Period. I can find nothing not to love about it nor anything needed to perfect it. Although sometimes I mix things up and have it with a splash of vanilla creamer. Heaven.
This tea has a nice strong tea base and a very tasty citrus presence. It is perhaps because of the rich tea base and full flavor profile of the zesty orange that the cacao is much more of an afterthought. It does show up more in the finish/aftertaste. However, in order for me to fall in love with it then it would need a stronger cacao/chocolate presence. Still an enjoyable cuppa though.
I have long added a pinch of blueberry tea to my Earl Grey Creme so I was excited to check this one out. I love the twist of the blueberry with the Earl Grey. The black tea base was nice and rich. My issue with it is that the bergamot is a little stronger than I prefer. Still tasty and worth consideration.
I really like this one. The aroma from the dry blend is VERY SWEET. However, the prepared cup is quite nice. The name of blend says it all. Think candied almonds or syrupy ones like you might find on a sticky bun. Good plain, with milk, and with or without a touch of sugar. I found it to be rich, sweet and satisfying. A great dessert tea to curb a sweet carb craving.
This features a mild black tea with a nice chocolaty flavor and a nutty backdrop. The nutty does standout overtly as hazelnut in my opinion and I am a bit of hazelnut addict. There is also a fair amount of rose in this and it is really the third primary flavor in the blend—-and one I could have lived without. It is still tasty though. It appears you cannot buy this one in loose form though.
Kind of a standard issue vanilla rooibos. Tasty, but I do prefer a tad bit more vanilla in mine. Want it to get in my face a little more.
Think more buttery apple tea. Not much brandy to speak of. Overall, tasty. However, the AWOL brandy is a little disappointing.
My standards for milk oolong may be a bit high. This is a natural milk oolong (JIN Xuan) but I still wanted a bit more creaminess from it. I personally would spend my oolong dollars on a different milk oolong or SerendipiTea’s Forever Spring.
