Very smooth and delicious and wonderful sample I received Jaime. Thanks Jaime!
426 Tasting Notes
I don’t know about this one. I felt it was pretty loud for a white tea. The dry leaf smelled amazing and after steep it was about the same. There is definitely no lack of flavor but I just didn’t think it really tasted like strawberry shortcake. All and all I didn’t feel the flavors were well balanced, the vanilla stuck out the most and lingers long after the sip but even though the strawberry was visibly there it didn’t taste like it. I am however happy I had the chance to try it.
After this cooled off I got a bit more of a tart strawberry sweet flavor. The flavors also tied in with each other a bit better. Bumped up a few points.
As per AmazonV’s suggestion I made this iced with a splash of milk and it was greatly improved. The root beer flavor wasn’t as overwhelming. I would much rather drink it like this than hot. Thanks again. Bumped it up a few points.
Hits the spot, I almost forgot how much I enjoyed this.
Lovely, well balanced, smooth. I can’t wait to try adding this to other teas and see what I come up with.
Made this as a latte today and it was just amazing. I used mostly milk and added a little half and half for a creamy touch. Then I topped it off with whipped cream. I bit decadent but I am worth it. :-)
Bumping up, this tastes amazing iced. It is perfectly watermelon! Gee, I really want spring to come.
Wow, so this really tastes like a root beer float. The only problem is that it tastes like a root beer float but it is warm. I am having a hard time with this one because it is so dead on but it isn’t a real root beer float.
Not bad, slightly sweet mostly tart. Still refreshing, I would enjoy this on a hot summer day over ice. Guess I will be waiting a while for that. :-)
I have bumped this up a few points because after proper measuring and water temp I was able to get a stronger coconut flavor. It was also sweetner which was a wonderful surprise. Not sure if I got a toasted feel but nevertheless a solid cuppa.
When I saw this I didn’t even stop think if I should or shouldn’t buy it. A force took me over and I just had to buy it. I am happy to say it was a wonderful decision. The scent out of the bag was of sweet watermelon and the smell after the steep was also a strong watermelon. After taking the first sip the flavor of watermelon was lacking in comparison to the smell both pre and post steep. Nevertheless, I truly am happy I purchased this. I enjoyed the essence of watermelon and for a brief moment I felt like it was spring time. Since am in Chicago the daydream; as a result of this tisane, was priceless. I suspect this would make an amazing iced tea. I will try some later.
I found this to be silky and slightly creamy. I think I would like to make it again after I weigh the leaf since they are so large for an more precise review. I may at that time be adjusting my score. So far so good!
Wow, so excited to be trying this. I just got my first order and I dug in. I am enjoying this one a lot. The dry leaf smelled wonderful and strong. I think I saw coconut flakes in there and I did not expect it. The flavor is smooth and sliky, it is like the essence of an almond croissant. Very delicious and will drink again.
My only wish is that there be a complete list of ingredients somewhere online before I order and some recommended steep parameters.
Bumping up! Seriously, this just keeps getting better every time I drink it. Both my parents loved it too. Yummy!
This tastes bright and green. The first thought was creamy and buttery, but a light butteriness. Then the green less than heavy vegetal taste took over. Any interesting and unique tea for me.
On another note, my local TeaGschwendner is shutting down in a few weeks. Sad :-(
Dang! This tastes awesome with leftover birthday cake.
Wow this is AWESOME! If you are looking for accuracy this is it. I am originally from Gujrat, India and was a little skeptical since I had tasted the real thing. I just couldn’t believe how this tastes exactly what chai in the Gujrat region of India should taste like. I love it and the fact that it is easy is the best. I am glad I finally bought this as it will be a staple. I will have my parents try it next and if I get their approval I know this is the real deal. As for me a true winner!
I used half milk and half water in my preparation.
Yikes! A rare miss. I didn’t get strawberry or chocolate from this. I will try different steep times and temps and hope it was just user error. Hope to report back with more positive results in the near future.
Just finished a relaxing 90 minute couples massage at Lifetime Fitness. It was wonderful and I can say it was the best message I have ever had. As for the tea I was offered a drink of water or tea and of course I picked tea. What an interesting experience. It was very soothing, and had some spices. Not sure I can have it all the time. I just don’t think I can even put this in a tea category. I couldn’t even tell it was black tea. Nevertheless, it tasted pretty good in a weird way.
Wow, this is some good stuff. The mango actually tastes juicy. However, I will say that I wish the chili played a stronger roll. Nonetheless, I am truly enjoying this courtesy of Jaime thanks again for all the treats you have sent me.
Of all the cheesecake blends Frank has this is the first one I truly tasted the cheesecake and that part was by far my favorite experience with this tea. The banana was only slightly present. Nevertheless, not too bad a blend at all.
Thank you again Jaime you are awesome!
This one is without words amazing. I just can’t believe how good this was not to mention how it tasted as I would have imagined chocolate covered bacon would taste like. I found it to be rich and deep in flavor and it looks like I need to order some of this for myself. I had a friend over when I drank it and I gave her some to try and she too was amazing at how good it was and how unexpected.
Thank you Jaime for sending this to me sometime ago now. I have finally taken the time to organize my cupboard which is basically in my kitchen and dining room (I have too much tea, it is spilling over in great amounts throughout my house but don’t worry I am not complaining) Anyway, after organizing I now have better access to my samples which I hope to be going through more quickly.
So not bad but I was hoping for more of a pronounced carrot taste. Still I very much enjoyed drinking it. I could draw from it the natural sweetness of the carrot. There is a Indian dessert made of carrot that my mom will make once in a blue moon that this stuff reminds me of it. Of course now I am craving it and will have to request she make it sometime. As for the orange aspect, it was a nice complement to the carrot. The Green Rooibos was the perfect choice to help highlight the added flavors. Yum!
Well, I finally got this. I am so glad since I was patiently and eagerly waiting to try it. I actually bought it the day it was released and then a week later won the contest on 52 Teas so I have 2 pouches now. This makes me very happy. As far as the simulating factor I can say I was sad to see there seems to be no stimulating effects on me. I feel asleep about 30 mins after drinking it. I am hoping drinking it more will help improve it’s stimulating effects. As for the taste I found it was a little earthy which for me is a good thing. I am also loving the lemon addition but I admit I was hoping the lemon would be stronger. Nevertheless, it was worth the wait. Another winner for Frank.
