I enjoyed this tea. I love anything strawberry, especially in the flavor of teas. I would of enjoyed more cakey/pastry flavoring. It has a touch of creaminess to it. I would buy this tea again. Enjoyed plain, but I could see milk in this.

drank Red Currant Tea by Culinary Teas
236 tasting notes

I prefer black currant as a flavor to red. This has a touch of sour that currants can have. The black currants have a richer, fruity taste I love. It’s an okay tea, it needed sugar to enjoy. The tea base was decent.

I bought this in a sample box with other bagged tea from T of H. I thought it was a little bland. I think I enjoy jasmine best with black teas. I have had jasmine with greens that I’ve liked. This is okay for being bagged.

drank Grand Marnier by Culinary Teas
236 tasting notes

I love Grand Marnier…either with Duck a la Orange, in chocolate truffles, or in a stiff drink. This tea captures the flavor of it well. This is one of the best orange flavored teas I’ve ever had. It was a creamy like background to it that I love, but not to the point of being a orangesicle. Makes for a great iced tea. I like the black base in it, too. It has some orange zest in it and yellow petals from some flower.

Nice review I like orange but the zest kind scares me alittle is it extremly tart?

Mel

It’s not tart at all. It was really smooth. I am not a fan of bitter citrus teas. I really like this one.

I am very very picky about mango, which isn’t the tea’s fault. I thought I would give this tea a try. I think I dislike mango flavoring. The tea has a perfect balance of tea and flavoring. It is good iced. I just don’t like mango as the flavoring, I prefer mangoes only in Indian food where it’s mixed with something. Mmmm, mango pickle or mango lassi, that’s something I could eat right now.

drank Caribbean Blue Lady by Culinary Teas
236 tasting notes

Very smooth black tea. It makes a wonderful iced tea. I picked up the strawberry flavor. It ends with the coconut. The flavors blend well nicely. I really enjoyed the tea. I loved the cream like taste it has. Had to add more leaves to make it a good strong iced tea. I would buy this again. I can’t afford a cruise along the Caribbean, this will do for now! :)

Very smooth strawberry taste. A little sweet. I think I will add a lot more dry leaf to brew next time, it came out kind of weak. I might brew it with twice the amount, like with Den’s teas perimeters for Japanese brewing. I drank it iced.

drank Provence Rooibos by Culinary Teas
236 tasting notes

I have never been to France which is truly a shame. But that doesn’t stop my love affair of French teas or French inspired teas.

I wasn’t sure if I would like this tea. Teas with roses seemed to be hit or miss with me. I LOVE this one. I love the black currants and lavender. It’s a wonderful blend, along with the light flavoring of rose. It’s delicious iced.

Smells great in dry state. And it’s one of the most colorful teas I have bought.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Profile

Bio

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
