I find It’s sweet and woodsy and comforting. For some reason I really like the sound the little pellets make as I toss them into my teapot. I do not rate this as a favorite, however, I liked the smoke and wood taste (after adding 2 packets of sugar). Without sugar I found this tea bland.
57 Tasting Notes
I think I died and I am in heaven! This tea is outstanding!!!!!! This is a tea I will keep in my tea vault to be drank on very special days (or nights). I did compare it to eating some fresh fruit (plum was what I tasted).
The flavor was stronger than I’d anticipated. This was a great afternoon tea with a delightful treat.
I enjoyed starting my day with this tea. The tea is light and minty with the black tea base dominating. Overall it tastes like a great black tea with a minty finish.
I am not sure what I did wrong….I was thinking there would be a strong mint flavor (sorry did not get mint flavor). I will try again in a few days and then give my review.
Oh well ….I will make another tea to enjoy (Lord knows I have enough samples to try).
I was surprised that, for the number of cocoa components it contains, I didn’t pick up any chocolate in either flavor or fragrance.
I had High Hopes that I would be able to find a tea with a strong chocolate note (this really did not do it for me) I think I have been spoiled after tasting Chocolate and Creme by TreeFrog (note to self place order)
I was not sure what I wanted to start the day off with or what I ws looking for when I went to my tea cupboard. I finally decided to try this tea (excellent choice)!
This rich tea has a strawberry flavor that does remind me of strawberry life savors I ate as a child.
A warm muffin and this tea is a great start to my day.
This was a sample that I saved until I had time to sit and truly enjoy. I will guard in my tea vault what is left of this sample until I can ordr some of this tea. The flavor was wonderful and the aroma while steeping filled the kitchen. This is going to be a tea I will only drink on special days when I want a true treat.
Can Not Wait To Order SOme Of This Tea!
An absolutely delightful caramel-flavored black tea with a distinct caramel flavor. Thank you Lori for sharing this tea with me. I enjoyed this tea while relaxing with a good book tonight.
I found this tea to be a tea that was pretty with no flavor other than vanilla. My new tea buddy Lori was kind enough to share some of this with me. Thank You Lori!!!!!
I read teanotes as I brewed this tea, tasted the tea, then added just a pinch of mint (because we know I love mint blended at times). I did enjoy the tea and will enjoy it again soon. This tea does leave a sour note after drinking it.
I enjoyed this tea and found it very calming and soothing. I did add a bit of sugar as I enjoy my tea on the sweet side. I will make sure I keep this tea in my cupboard at all times.
My son came to me and ask me if I would please make him a cup of warm tea.
There were smiles from both my son and boyfriend about the process of warming the teapot, checking the temp of the water, and timing the steep time.
Son enjoyed the tea and it did help his tooth that was giving him a fit.
I also enjoyed this tea this afternoon.
Took a sample of this to my Mom to enjoy. Since Mom is use to drinking Lipton bag tea, this was a real treat that she seem to enjoy.
I have been wanting to try this tea since I have made the switch from coffee. I blended this tea with fresh mint and found it very interesting. I agree it has a sweet flavor, however, a touch of honey makes it just wonderful.
I blended this tea with Coconut Cocoa (Republic of Tea). I enjoyed the blend and found myself staying up way too late relaxing and enjoying. I feel you must drink this tea very warm, however, not real Hot. This tea was a home run for sure.
I blended this tea with fresh mint. I used 1 teaspoon of each tea and let it steep for 4 minutes. This will be a favorite personal blend that I will find in my cup often.
I am enjoying a cup of this before bed. I find myself with a headache and thought this tea with the nice mint flavor might help. This was the last sample bag in the cupboard. I will be making a shopping list of tea to purchase this weekend.
I am feeling relaxed and ready for dreamland. Good Night ….Sleep Well !
I Loved This Tea! This is a tea I will try to keep in my cupboard at all times!
Yummmmm Yummmmmm Yummmmm!!!!!!!!
What a nice way to start the day. I did add just a slight amount of sugar after the first sip.
I think I will have a cup of this tonight when I get home from work.
I am enjoying a cup of this lovely tea as I sit and relax while reading a book on tea I picked up at the library.
I enjoyed this tea for breakfast today.
I Loved This Tea! Steep time was 8 minutes as I wanted a rich flavor. I will have another cup of this tea tonight. A new Teapot and a Tea I Love…..Life is good!!!!!!
Glad this was a sample. I do not find this a tea that I would want to buy. I feel like I need a mint after drinking this tea.
This was very relaxing and calming after a hard day at work. There was a hint of cranberry after taste and slight notes of blueberry which I truly enjoyed. I had a gift card from Boarders that I purchased this with (not sure I will purchase this again).
I am enjoying learning and tasting all the different teas I seem to be adding to my collection.
