4842 Tasting Notes
I love the aroma of the dry leaf. It is very sweet… and reminds me of a candy shop. Perhaps not necessarily the smell you want to experience when you open a package of tea, BUT my sweet tooth and I don’t mind! I can see why this tea was chosen to be part of the Flavored Holiday sampler collection from Lupicia.
The flavor is quite yummy. Sweet and fruity but not overly so. I can still taste the fresh, leafy taste of the green tea. I suspect this would be even more delightful as an iced tea…
Enjoying another cup of this today and writing a review for it (which will publish in a few days).
I am getting the most enchanting cocoa notes as well as a nice, caramel-y sweetness and a note of bitter that cuts through the sweetness to prevent it from being too cloying. A very nice tea. This could make a very nice substitution for Dawn!
Very nice, indeed. Deep, rich and delicious.
I found the aroma of the dry leaf to be most intriguing, there were notes of cocoa along with a faint hint of black licorice. I’m not sure exactly why I got that note, but, I liked it. Alas, the licorice does not translate into the flavor, but that’s alright because I quite like the flavor the way it is.
This is one with which I shall enjoy spending some time.
I think this tea was very recently blended, because when I opened the pouch, I could smell the alcohol. The alcohol is so strong that I thought that it might have been a rum flavored tisane until after I tasted it, and could taste no alcohol essence. Just tasting apple, maple, rooibos and honeybush!
I really like this combination. I prefer honeybush/rooibos blends to strictly rooibos blends because I like the way the two work together. I can taste the honey-esque tones of the honeybush without tasting that funky sweetness from the rooibos. There is also a slight nut/wood like note but not overwhelming.
The apple and maple also work well together… very autumn-ish! Yum!
This is an interesting blend of black, Oolong and white teas with Yerba Mate. The base works well (although, I do recommend a low brewing temp) even though there are so many different types of tea. It has a very unique flavor, and it is one that I want to spend a little more time with before I rate it…….
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending this tea my way!
Yep… I caved and bought the White Christmas gift box. Haha! Since my family is either a little intimidated to buy me tea (or thinks that I have enough tea) for a present, I have started buying my own tea presents! This year, I got myself this gift package as well as the 12 days (which I’m eagerly waiting to start!) box from 52Teas.
On to this tea. It is YUMMY… I like this very much – and I’m a little surprised because I tend to be a little disappointed with Harney’s sachets, but this one is good.
The almond and vanilla are very well pronounced, and I like the flavor of the cardamom. So good. Not too spicy, just warm and inviting. Cozy! Delish!!!
