4637 Tasting Notes
I love Earl Grey in the morning – it really invigorates! The aroma, the flavor – it really gets me going!
I really like this blend a lot. The lavender is nice. Smooth and very delicious.
By the way – we (the SororiTEA Sisters) will be giving away a tin of this next week! Details coming soon!
I didn’t steep this for the full 8 minutes as suggested by Upton because it’s been my experience with teas containing hibiscus that they become way too thick and syrupy (not to mention TART) when left to brew that long.
I really like the way this tisane smells. Strong with cinnamon but I can also smell the fruity notes from the plum too.
This is not a terrible tisane – The cinnamon is the strongest element in the blend, but there is a nice enough fruity flavor to it too. The hibiscus is a bit tart, and I think I’d have liked it better if there was less hibiscus in this blend, but it isn’t too sour, just a little bit more tart than I would like. A little agave nectar helps to curb that – but it would be nice not to have to add it for that purpose.
Not the worst tasting tisane I’ve ever tried, but certainly not the best either. I’m glad I tried the sample of this, but it’s not one of which I’ll purchase a full-sized package.
Another sampling from TeaEqualsBliss – thank you!
This is one that I’ve been most interested to try. I’ve read a few very positive reviews on Steepster for it and it peaked my curiosity.
The aroma is delicious – I do love caramel! A sweet, browned sugar scent.
The tea base is strong and I’m getting a little bitterness from it, but not so much that it’s unpleasant. Not as sweet tasting as the aroma lead me to believe but it is tasty (although, I must admit that I do prefer my own caramel blend)
I’m tasting this courtesy of TeaEqualsBliss! Thanks!
The orange and vanilla combination is usually a winner in my book – and it works well with the rooibos in this blend. I can still taste the woodsy flavor of the rooibos, but I’m not getting that “artificial sweetener” taste from the rooibos and that’s a real big PLUS!
The citrus is sweet with just the right amount of tart, and the vanilla tastes smooth.
I’m enjoying a Matcha smoothie at the moment – Kefir, frozen peaches, banana and Mandarin Matcha. This time, I am using coconut milk kefir, which adds a very interesting dimension to the flavor – it has a bit more tropical flair that I’m really liking.
It appears that I only have enough of this Matcha left for one more serving… perhaps I will finish that off with a chawan of Matcha in a bit.
I’ve only had one other tea with “yumberry” flavor – and I really liked it, so I was pretty sure I’d like this one too. And I was right.
The fruity flavor is strong but I can taste the white tea too – it is a gentle, sweet white tea flavor – very fresh with a slight hint of vegetal taste. The fruit flavor is also a bit sweet – a nice, refreshing afternoon treat!
YUMberry is right!
This is a really good Earl Grey! The black tea is brisk enough to work as a “first of the morning-get up and go” kind of tea, and the bergamot is very lively. The lavender softens the bergamot a bit which I really like. It’s not like a distinct lavender flavor, but I can taste it. It plays very well with the bergamot’s floral tendencies.
I’m loving this cuppa!
YUM! I think I want to move to France and live next door to the family Dammann. (And in this fantasy of mine, they invite me to tea every day)
I seriously have not yet encountered a tea from them that I do not like.
I need to thank Doulton for this experience – thank you! This tea is incroyable!
Noël à Vienne translates into Christmas is coming. I can taste a bit of christmas in this cup – there is a certain “baked” flavor to the tea that reminds me of the apricot cookies my grandma would make at christmas time. And of course, there is the chocolate. It is a bit more delicate than I would like (but then, I’m a chocoholic, so more chocolate is always better). There is also a light touch of citrus and a pleasantly creamy character to it. This is SO GOOD!
Thank you again Doulton!
