Delicious! The cranberry and orange taste vibrant and juicy. The spices are very mild and are more of an accent to the flavor rather than a strong presence in the cup.
The black tea is fairly mellow with a bit of astringency – slightly drying. Pleasantly sweet without any additions but I prefer it with a little bit of honey. Nice and autumn-ish!
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea – it’s one that I’ve wanted to try for a while now!
The floral notes of this tea are very pleasant – sharp yet sweet, and an excellent contrast with the brisk flavor of the black tea and the sumptuous flavor of the fruit.
Delicious! I’m really glad I got to try this!
OK, I’m glad I saved this one for last. I love the way the bergamot comes through the rich chocolate flavor. This is SO GOOD.
The citrus-y bergamot flavor is perfectly paired with the sweet chocolate flavor. It is sweet and creamy and decadent.
I so enjoyed this collection of truffles! They are absolutely awesome!
Ugh… Monday already.
I have an appointment this morning, so I can’t go back to bed and take a nap. So, it’s Mate to the rescue!
This morning, I added a bit of cinnamon to the finished product… I like it a lot like that. Tasty! Rich and robust and I can already feel it starting to work it’s magic. Yay!
I have to agree with most of the other tasting notes about this tea – it has too much hibiscus.
However, if you let it cool (or have it iced) the hibiscus is not as troublesome.
This is one though that requires a healthy dose of honey to curb some of that tart hibiscus taste. I will say though that the honey brings out the apple and citrus notes a bit.
My immediate reaction to just about any herbal blend is a slight cringe. I have quite enjoyed a lot of herbal teas, but, it just seems that when it comes right down to it, they worry me a bit, because not all herbal teas “work.”
This one DOES! Even though I was a little scared of this one, it is actually quite nice. The peppermint is strong but doesn’t overpower the other ingredients. I love the combination of lemongrass and ginger in this – the lemongrass smooths out some of the stronger ginger-y notes, and makes this a very palatable blend.
This doesn’t come off as medicine-y tasting to me. The rose in this is a nice touch and gives it a pleasant floral sweetness.
This is really quite good. I was a little worried when I read the description of this tea because I’m not particularly fond of tart… but, this is “tart in a good way.” And what I mean by that is that it is not really pucker-y or sour, but more of a sweet-tart kind of tart… but without that candy taste.
The berry flavor is really pronounced here, and it overpowers the flavor of the rooibos, which is quite alright with me.
I found this to be rather enjoyable. A nice tea to sip in the evening.
