4840 Tasting Notes
This is Yum! I wish that the chocolate was stronger (of course), but I like the balance of flavors. Pleasant!
The black tea is fairly mellow but tasty. The hazelnut is the strongest component and it tastes nutty and yummy. I don’t get a lot from the coconut except that I do get a creaminess from it, and then a coconut note in the tail of the sip. The rose flavor is very faint.
This is really good. So far the best that I’ve tried from Sands of Thyme.
I can taste all the elements, but none are overpowering or off-putting, they all seem to be in quite a harmonious balance. There is a note of bitterness toward the end of the sip that lingers in the aftertaste, but it is a savory kind of bitter.
I really like this one a lot. Here’s my full-length review of it:
Sweet, but not too sweet. Delicious. Hint of tart. Nice!
Enjoying some Raspberry Earl Grey this morning. This is one that I’ve not had in a while… I quite enjoy it.
I wrote a review for this some time ago:
I will say that this time around, I can smell more of the raspberry in the dry leaf, and the bergamot and raspberry are somewhat united to create their own unique scent. It’s quite nice. I wish that this aroma was as strong in the liquor.
I really like this one. I’m quite picky when it comes to cream Earl Grey teas because I had a blend that I considered the best. But since I am not doing that anymore, this one would certainly substitute fine for it. It is smooth, creamy and delicious, but has enough bergamot in it so that I know I’m drinking an Earl Grey.
Oh! I forgot to thank TeaEqualsBliss for this! Thanks!!!
I am drinking this iced this evening… even though it’s a little chilly outside, I am finding it so refreshing as an iced tea.
The flavor is smooth and sweet. I like the overall lightness of this. The mandarin orange flavor makes the natural taste of the rooibos go down so smooth. Very nice.
This is part of the “Low Caffeine” Holiday Tea collection from Lupicia.
Having tried both the Carol and now the Decaf Carol, I find them to be very similar but there are some differences that stand out to me. First of all, the black tea base here is a bit thinner than that of the caffeinated version. However, the flavorings are more intense with the decaf… the strawberry and vanilla really POP and the coconut is much more distinct here!
Both are very good!
This is a lot better than I thought it would be. I was worried with hibiscus as the first ingredient listed that I was in for a very strong, hibiscus-y tisane, but, the hibiscus is not so bad here. It provides a bit of body to the cup, and a hint of tartness… but it isn’t a defining ingredient here. The real stars are the citrus-y notes and the cinnamon!
