6 Tasting Notes

100

Thankyou for the free sample Butiki!

This Darjeeling has a very soft, sweet smell. Not very exciting, but certainly pleasant. In fact, the tea tastes like it smells. It’s floral, clean and leaves a dry aftertaste. Very good. 10/10

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 30 sec

drank Constant Comment by Bigelow
6 tasting notes

Hello friends! I thought i would start out with a simple tea today.
Well, Bigelow is a rather cheap tea. But It can be good in a pinch. Constant Contentment is more of a nostalgia tea. I taste the orange rind and the black tea, but almost no spice. Maybe that’s the clearing sensation I feel in my nose? Aw well, I still enjoyed it. 7/10

drank Caramel Mate by Hooker Tea
6 tasting notes

Caramel Mate was one of my first loose teas. It really was the bridge from “Tea Dust” in a bag to the real deal. So I might be a bit biased with this lovely tea.

First of all, the tea came out to a lovely liquor brown. It smells of roasted leaves ( as it should be, it IS a roasted Mate) and a hint of sweetness from the caramel. It’s a nice combination and neither scent overpowers the other.

Unfortunately, I don’t taste the caramel. All I can pick up is the roasted Mate. It’s a pleasant and mild in taste and surprisingly it tastes better without the Carmel.

I give this tea a 4.5/5 because though it’s fantastic, the name lie’s about it’s true flavor.

drank Wild Sweet Orange by Tazo
6 tasting notes

Well, I had high hopes for this Tea. I mean, anything that’s WILD and SWEET, an oxymoron if you will, had to be good. I was wrong. I still enjoyed the tisane but it was way to sour and not enough sweet.

It was a beautiful, orange flavored candy color. I could pick up a faint lemongrass as well. Not my favorite Tea, but I have a full box and I think I could choke the rest down. ;D

Sorry, It seems very vague, this is my first review.
