611 Tasting Notes
Ever since I heard that there is Valerian in this tea, that apparently makes you really tired, I wanted to try it. Because I’m all about relaxing teas right now. xD
So I tried it the other night, and of course, it didn’t make me any more tired than I already was. xD That was disappointing. I mean some people act like Valerian in teas really knocks you out. I was really hoping it would do that to me, but…things never really work for me that works for everyone else, so I shouldn’t be surprised.
Anyway, the taste isn’t too bad. Dry leaf smells strongly of spearmint.
The taste is almost the same as the smell, except it also tastes faintly of lemongrass. I read other tasting notes mentioning that. But it just was kinda a weird combo when I experienced it. xD Oh well.
I will have to try this again, maybe next time It will work better!
Flavors: Lemongrass, Smooth, Spearmint
This was the first tea of the year! Had expected it to be a black tea, but didn’t feel well enough to have a caffeinated tea. So after a couple hours of being awake and thinking about what tea I should drink I decided to drink this one!
Apparently I’m back to drinking tons of this tea all the time because this whole week I feel like I’ve been drinking tons of it. xD
Ah, well nice tea to start out the year with. Hope everyone is having a great year so far! :D
As someone who isn’t a ginger fan this is a hard tea to like. I imagine if I did love ginger I’d like this more. I like the certain bready quality it has to it. Reminds me of eating a gingerbread man which I love. Theoretically I would love this tea since I love gingerbread men so much but…I don’t know…in tea form there’s just too much ginger for me >
Flavors: Baked Bread, Ginger
Another one from the wonderful Albertocanfly!
This one was actually pretty good! Didn’t know what to expect really. But I ended up finding myself a little disappointed. I mean Creamy Caramel sounds like a dream in my book, but at the same time I had a bad feeling that the rooibos would take over.
In some way I was impressed that it actually did taste like a creamy caramel, but at the same time the woodiness in the rooibos kinda tried to take over. So that was sad.
DavidsTea’s Creme Caramel Rooibos is MUCH better.
This one definitely tasted more like cream than caramel though, so I prefer Davids’. But this is a nice tea to try. I will enjoy finishing it off. Thanks for the sample, Albertocanfly! :D
Flavors: Caramel, Creamy, Wood
Got a late, unexpected Christmas package from the lovely Albertocanfly today!
She sent me some of this tea which i was excited to try. I love kiwis, and strawberries are pretty good in tea form. Not really a fan of real strawberries anymore even though I loved them as a kid. Think I had too many sour ones so I stopped eating them.
But I’ve found that strawberry flavors in tea is actually really good. In this tea the strawberry flavor is super sweet and present. Very in-your-face. Which I like!
The kiwi on the other hand is the sour one. 0_0 Like super sour. The kind of sour only Warheads should be. xD
For that reason, I do not like this tea. Strawberry and kiwi would make a great mix, as long as neither of them are sour. It was so close to being good, but just not close enough! D:
Thanks for the sample though, Albertocanfly!
Flavors: Fruity, Sour, Strawberry
I’m nearly finished with my first tin of this tea! Has been a few weeks since I last had it. I still really enjoy this tea so much. I really hope that by the time this one runs out, they have it stocked on their website or in the store closest to me. I cannot run out! D:
Still as perfectly sweet and juicy as always! Wonderful tea for bad mornings!
Every time I have this tea, I remember how amazing it is. For some reason in my head I keep thinking it’s gonna be a really sour lemon that I really really gotta be in the mood for. But it keeps surprising me and making me realize how amazing it is. It’s such a creamy and smooth lemon. It’s actually pretty amazing-and I wish my brain would stop lying to me! It’s annoying! >
