7 Tasting Notes
I had this tea when I had lunch at a local independent cafe. It’s now one of my favorite teas. It’s sweet, but not overly sweet. If you like to put additives in your tea, go light on the sugar or honey. I didn’t add milk or cream in, but I’d go light on the creamer.
Flavors: Honey, Vanilla
This herbal tea had me at the first sent!
When I made this tea the first time I loved it. The combination of spices are amazing. Not only for the flavor, but for the aroma of it while it steeps. When I drink this in the fall or winter, I have this warm and comforting feeling. Over the spring and summer, I want to roam to new and exotic places.
This is on my “Need-to-Get-Again” list!
I got this when I wasn’t feeling well with a cold.
I first thought there would be more of a spicy kick in this tea. But the Mandarin orange flavor was really over powering. Which is surprising because I do like oranges for that extra boost of vitamin C. But not in my tea.
Overall it was okay, but just not my top favorite. Or “Oh! I want to buy that again!!”. Plus if you like milk or cream in your tea, the milk or cream looks like you poured and stirred in coconut flakes in this tea. Just a warning.
I gave this tea a try a month ago.
The taste is wasn’t as important to me for this tea like it would be for other teas. I was more interested to see if it helped my skin. I have sensitive skin and I get a problem spot on my face when stressed or once a month for a few days to a week. I was looking for a healthy, natural glow. Not a miracle in a cup when I originally picked up this tea. If I needed more help, I would see my doctor or dermatologist, just so I make my expectations for this tea clear.
And I did start to get a bit of a glow to my face as I followed the 2 to 4 cup regime daily. So I did see some improvement in the two boxes I tried. I would probably see more results had I continued this tea. I’ve had a lot happen in recent months, or in 2013 in general, and I lost track on the Skin DeTox tea regime.
I had gotten this tea as a birthday gift from my sister. I was really excited because anything red velvet is my top favorite.
I had to expierement with steeping time to get the full flavor. The first time I tried this tea, I steeped it for the recommended 2 to 5 minutes on the tin. The flavor was there, but not fully. The next few times I had it I steeped it for 6 to 10 minutes. I got a mild flavor when I did this. Which was great so it wasn’t over-powering.
I also tried two different ways of steeping the tea bag in the water when I was experimenting with the steeping time. I tried adding the bag after I had the hot water in my mug the first time. That might have been why I didn’t get the full flavor. After that, I would put the tea bag in the mug BEFORE I put the hot water in it. The flavor improved when I did this and played with the steeping time.
Overall, I did like this type of tea. It was very nice, not overpowering, and I swear I did smell fresh baked red velvet cake when I took a whiff of the tea. I say it’s perfect for desserts and small get-togethers. My only complaint is that it’s $10.00 a tin (if you go to Fisher’s in North Canton, OH) if you want to re-stock on this tea.
When I went home for Christmas, my mom surprised me with this sweet holiday tea. Naturally I was very curious to try it.
I had some while at work today and it was delicious! It was sweet, but not overly sweet. It was almost like a vanilla waffer cookie sweet. Which is very pleasant. I would recommend a little bit of honey or sugar if you like to add sugar or any sweetners to your tea. Too much would be over kill.
Still good to have in January for a comfy winter day inside or to warm up from being outdoors.
I got this tea when I was at the grocery store on a whim. And I’m glad I did! A few months later I had problems getting a good night sleep due to stress at work. I drank this tea and I was able to sleep well to feel well rested the next day!
As for the taste, I get a hint to a good deal of vanilla. Which isn’t a bad thing. But overall the taste is very soothing and calming. Perfect if you plan to drink this tea to help you relax and/or sleep.
