69 Tasting Notes
Mmmmm! I like this one! I shared a cup with my mom and she loved it too. The one downfall of this tea is that it is perhaps missing the taste of the wine. However, as a strawberries with custard tea—-Delicious. Great strawberry flavor and I like to enhance the creaminess with a splash of cream. Thumbs up!!!
What a perfect summer tea! I usually enjoy melon teas when paired with a white tea base but the green tea base almost seemed to add some authenticity to the melon flavor. I may have to buy a larger quanity of this to enjoy all summer long. Or wait, I need to drink through some tea first. :/
While I may have gotten a bad batch of this, I did not care for this one at all. There was something a little off in the flavor profile making it smell more like a meat marinade than a Ginger Peach tea. I am thinking that maybe it is a case of someone getting a little crazy with the artificial flavorings. Would not buy or recommend.
The tea base on this one is worth the price on the admission and very S-M-O-O-T-H! It is obviously a good quality black tea and you don’t find that all the time. The black tea base pairs nicely with the apricot flavor and the saffron. I stock this one in my cupboard and it is not one that I will likely EVER allow myself to run out of.
This one is really not suited for my chai tastes. It does have a nice strong black tea (though very broken leaves), but it is somewhat bitter. I could actually overlook that if the spice mix/load suited my tastes. I like a nice powerful spice mix that gives off a nice amount of heat from the ginger and pepper. This one is largely dominated by cinnamon and cardamom. Not my cup of chai.
This one has a VERY full flavor profile so if you don’t like that sort of thing, then I would avoid this one. The primary flavor is mango, but the coconut provides a strong backdrop. The finish is all coconut. The Niligiri black tea is not bitter or astringent. This one makes a very nice iced tea. It didn’t rate higher with me as the flavors are not most natural tasting. However, I would buy this.
This is a fine example of an Oriental Beauty. This one is very fruity and woody as primary notes. The fruit and oak remind a bit of the complexity you find in a good red wine. However, despite all that wood, this has very little dryness in the mouth. There are also some floral notes and this one flirts with being creamy though it never fully delivers that creamy mouthfeel. If you are a lover of Oriental Beauty, then this one is not to be missed.
This is a favorite of mine. The oolong is nice and light bodied. This leaves behind a slightly creamy mouthfeel. The coconut flavor profile is not super full but very delicious.
