4139 Tasting Notes
This is the first of the package that I’m trying from Zoomdweebies.
The only other tea that I’ve tried called “Tutti Fruiti” (although probably not using that spelling) was a “kid’s tea” from Metropolitan Tea Company – basically a fruit tea that was actually quite good. This one I can’t really compare to that one, because they are two totally different teas.
This has a very interesting flavor though. Very sweet, candy-ish, like candied fruit. It sort of reminds me of the gelled fruit candies from Sunkist… like I somehow melted those in my tea… but this isn’t as sticky as that would be.
I look forward to trying this one iced.
Finishing up the last of a sample that I had of this tea.
I started out not being too crazy about this tea, but, as I continue to sip it, and as it cools, I am finding it a bit more enjoyable. The black tea base is rather tannic and I feel like that interferes a bit with the blackberry flavor coming through… but the flavor develops as I continue to make my way down the cup.
It’s pleasant enough… but certainly not my favorite offering from Specialteas.
I bought this sample some time ago, but just getting around to trying it tonight.
It smells delightful – fruity notes along with a fresh vegetative scent and a hint of floral – honeysuckles!
The flavor is nice. I am definitely getting a honeysuckle flavor from this cup – nice and sweet and floral. Very smooth, slightly nutty, with a peach-y like flavor.
Mmmmmmm…. very relaxing, soothing, dreamy!
The almond and vanilla flavors are in good balance, with just the right amounts of sweet, creamy, nutty and smooth. The Oolong tea is a darker (more oxidation) Oolong, and this I think further enhances the roasted nuttiness and sweet flavor. It has a pleasant mouthfeel… kind of like velvet! YUM! YUMMY! YUM!
