4835 Tasting Notes
Delicious! One of the best plum flavored teas (tisanes) that I’ve encountered. The plum and vanilla make a great combination and reminds me a bit of warm plum sauce (fresh plums that are cooked in a light syrup until all soft and mushy like applesauce) that’s been drizzled with vanilla cream sauce. YUM!
Having never tasted Sweet Potato Pie, I can’t tell you how close to the real thing this tea actually is, but, I can say that this is quite good. I’ve also tried the Sweet Potato Pie from Adagio, and I think that this one is better. I am not getting the same starchy quality that I got from Adagio’s, although there is some drying astringency… it might be a little starchy but not as strong as Adagio’s starchy taste.
It has a very pleasant sweetness, it tastes like sweet potato. Very Thanksgiving-ish!
I didn’t order this one when it was initially introduced, mostly because I thought it was rather ordinary… but after reading a few reviews of it, I was a bit saddened when it sold out before I could order some. When it was reblended, I quickly ordered some of it… and I’m glad I did.
I really like this. I just submitted a review for it for Tea Review Blog, which should publish soon.
I guess if I were to change anything about it, I would add some Assam to the blend because I’m wanting a baked kind of background to it. It is good without the Assam, but I think it would be really good with it!
I was just starting to consider which tea with which I’d like to start my day, when the doorbell rang… it was UPS delivering my package from Tea Forté! This is part of the winter collection from Tea Forte.
After reading the tasting notes on here about this tea, I’m a bit taken back, because I really am enjoying this.
It is really quite tasty. The flavor is sweet yet it has just enough heat from the spice to it to keep it from being too sweet. The black tea base is mild enough to not overpower the delicious orange, cinnamon and clove flavors, but it is still smooth and provides a nice backdrop to the flavors.
Thank you to Rachel for sending me a bit of this tea! I really appreciate it! I have never tried this tea and probably would have never had this opportunity, otherwise! Thanks!!!
This is good. It has a nice cinnamon and maple taste to it. I can also taste the almond flavor, although it is quite delicate.
