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
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.
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.
