4842 Tasting Notes
Thank you Rachel for sending me a bit of this to try!
This is really good. Apricot and pineapple are two flavors I wouldn’t have thought of combining, but they work really well together. It is sweet and nectar-like, but not so much that it doesn’t taste like tea either. A nice balance.
Yum! Thanks Rachel!
Today is my family’s thanksgiving, so I’m going crazy in the kitchen. The teas that I’ll be reaching for today are some tried and true favorites like this one – ones that I’ve already tasted, enjoyed, and about which I’ve already shared my thoughts.
I did want to make one note on this one, though… I read mrawlins2’s tasting note on this one where she indicated a similarity to Dawn… and I want to say that I can taste that as well. There are some definite cocoa notes… this one isn’t as bold or chewy as Dawn, but there are definitely some similarities.
This tisane isn’t on the Suffuse website, it is part of their Festive Medley (which is also not on their website yet).
I am not big on eggnog… I don’t dislike it, but it isn’t something that I go out of my way to consume, either.
This is pretty good… I can taste the eggnog flavor. It’s a nice, creamy kind of taste. The rooibos flavor is light, not heavy on the woody flavor but nice, nutty hints that go well with the eggnog flavor.
Finishing the package of this that TeaEqualsBliss sent me and finishing up my review for it (it will publish on November 30 at on http://sororiteasisters.com )
This is a really delightful Oolong. It has light notes of smoke and earth, it is nutty, sweet, fruity and delicious! I really like it.
This is a good mango and passion fruit flavored black tea – not as strong with the flavor as I might have liked. The delicious black tea base is front and center with this blend. The pretty flowers are there primarily for appearance sake, but, there is a faint, generic floral note to the cup.
Overall a really nice blend. Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending it my way!
I was happy to find that I had a little of this left in my stash! Yum. It’s rich and delicious!
Here’s my full-length review of this tea:
It’s been a while since I’ve had tea from California Tea House… this one has always been one of my favorites – Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss I get the opportunity to try it again!
I love the balance in this blend. The ginger is lightly peppery, the citrus taste sweet and not pucker-y, the chamomile is light and adds a little depth to the fruit taste, and the Sencha is fresh and sweet tasting. It all comes together very nicely.
Yummy! It’s a nice way to unwind!
Thanks to Mel for sending me some of this tea.
Well, I’ve certainly tasted better Green Tea with Lemongrass blends, but this isn’t horrible. It definitely tastes to me like the citrus flavor of the lemongrass has been enhanced with lemon flavoring, because this tastes much more lemon-y than lemongrass usually tastes. I am not getting a lot from the rose petals or the peppermint that is supposed to be in this blend, although some mint notes do weave in and out of the flavor as I sip. Just-barely-there notes though.
For me, the best thing about Good Earth Teas are the inspirational notes on the tags. Here’s what my tag had to say:
