4823 Tasting Notes
This tisane really surprised me. I was expecting an ordinary mint rooibos blend.
The peppermint is extraordinarily strong in this blend – so strong that it practically eliminates any rooibos flavor whatsoever. The addition of bergamot curbs some of the peppermint notes – this doesn’t taste like mouthwash.
It is rather delicious. I can taste the pine taste to this – it is quite unlike any rooibos blend I’ve yet to encounter! Very good!
Very nice. The cranberry is sweet and tart. There is a floral edge to this tea that is quite surprising and pleasant, and seems to curb some of the tartness to a very enjoyable level.
The black tea is rich and delicious.
Overall, the tea has a very comforting “autumnal” feel to it (which I’m guessing Mark T. Wendall was going for). I’m really enjoying this. I really like this one!
This is GOOD! I think I may have just found my favorite fruit tea (that is, fruit infusion, not a tea blend or a rooibos or honeybush blend, but a blend consisting of only fruit, and perhaps a little hibiscus). This tastes just like a jolly rancher! It doesn’t taste sugary sweet like a jolly rancher, but it has that watermelon flavor like a jolly rancher.
Yum, Yum, Yum!
This is pretty good. I taste the nutty/woody taste of the rooibos here, but it doesn’t taste off putting because I don’t taste that sweet aftertaste (which is good).
The currant flavor is delicious – sweet with just the right amount of tartness. I like the little tingly taste of berry at the finish. There is another flavor here that tastes a bit like pineapple to me.
Not my favorite rooibos blend but it is certainly enjoyable.
Wow – this is good. It is much better than I thought it would be. I am always a bit skeptical when it comes to tisanes with ingredient lists that begin with hibiscus as their main ingredient. But this one is blended well… not extraordinarily heavy on the hibiscus, and the other ingredients help cut through some of that tart flavor.
It is pleasantly tart, with a little sweetness, and a really nice hint of lavender in the finish. I like this very much.
This is very sweet and rich. The chai flavor is not tremendously spicy, although I can taste notes of cinnamon, cardamom and cloves. The ginger and black pepper of the Masala Chai blend are not as strong, but there is a faint “peppery” aftertaste beyond the sweetness of the white chocolate.
It’s really pleasant, and tastes quite a bit like a white chocolate chai latte might taste from one of those coffee houses. While this one isn’t my favorite of the package, the yum factor here is still very high!
This is so good.
It tastes just like peach cobbler. I can taste the “cobbler” part of this, the buttery flavor is very nice in there. The peach is sweet and well-balanced with the other flavors. In fact, it might be a little too well-balanced, because I am wanting a little more peach-y flavor out of it.
That being said, it is still outstanding – so much so that I may have to order more (depending upon what Frank releases this week)…
