Weird…strange…I just can’t put my finger on it. I can taste the Sweet Potato Pie and it is in this cup I am sipping. I think this is one of those situations where being too accurate is it’s downfall. It is very buttery with a deep mellow sweetness. I can almost taste the darkness of brown sugar but not the sweetness from it. I am glad I received this sample and feel like I could drink this again. I think it would be an occasional treat though. Perhaps it can be best described as… “Complicated”
426 Tasting Notes
It was ok in taste. There is a tartness and an orange flavor but it was a bit syrupy too. With some tweaking I am sure I could get it to taste better. It is mildly thirst quenching. Not sure if I will buy it again.
I think I have got this one figured out. I am bumping it up because it really tastes good to me tonight.
I am so still enjoying this one. Hope it becomes a permanent addition to 52Teas.
Not bad, not bad at all. I made this extra strong and while it was steeping I took a little milk, warmed it up and then mixed in a touch of honey. Once the chai was ready and poured in the mixture and that just did the trick. It tasted wonderful. I would have given it a higher score but I didn’t get a strong enough chocolate flavor and no cheesecake flavor either. It doesn’t make the blend bad just not as described so bonus points for being good and negative points for not tasting as the ingredients included.
What a beautiful and thoughtful Christmas set I received from a very dear friend. Of all the choices I had I decided to drink “Butterfly” as my first this New Year’s Eve and what a great decision. Found the blossom to be simply gorgeous. The reddish pink center is just brilliant I must thank my friend right away. The taste was surprising in a very good way. It was slightly floral but mostly sweet. The sweet taste is a bright natural sweetness. Not syrupy or artificial at all. I can’t wait to taste the rest of my blooming teas.

Delicious! So far I am enjoying the “Dark” Zealong the most. I will write more detailed notes once I have made more steeps.
Thank you Meghann for sending me this wonderful tea amoung the others in my surprise package from you. :-)
I have been wanting to try this forever and I am so glad I finally tried it. It is yummy, yum, yum! I can’t believe it is decaf. I haven’t had too many decaf teas because I have not liked them all so much but this makes me think I like a decaf tea. I just have to hunt for the right one.
What an AMAZING tea. I really don’t know what else to say. It is wonderful, complex, balanced, and most importantly DELICIOUS! This is also one I got in my Tea & Chocolat package.
I got this is part of my Tea & Chocolat set this Christmas, it was a Steepster Select offering. I was not sure how I would like this one but in fact I was pleasantly surprised. I found it to be absolutely perfectly balanced. It was very smooth and not overly minty. I can tell this will be amazing iced, and great on a hot summer day. A long time from now I know but it did evoke some memories of what is to come. Delicious! I anticipate bumping this up once I have tried it iced.
First Merry Christmas to all. Now as for the tea I am not sure how I felt about it. I have never been able master the art of of chai making, which is pretty sad since that is what I saw and made growing up. When I was a kid I made it for my parents but didn’t drink it myself. After I got older and moved away I didn’t make it anymore and apparently it isn’t like riding a bike. Nevetheless, I will say this was ok but with proper preparation I am sure it can be better. All the spices tasted pretty mild and I am not sure if I got a gingerbread flavor to it. I scored it higher because I am pretty confident it was user error in preparation.
It was “Meh” it tasted like a mesh of flavors none of which I could identify individually.
As always a delicious treat and a welcomed edition to the permanent collection!
I taste the banana and I taste the peach. It was alright for me. A little syrupy in taste but I gave more points for accuracy and the suspicion that it probably makes a killer iced tea.
WOW!!! I did not expect this to taste like this. It is flavorful and reminds me of lightly candied fruits. Even though it isn’t a holiday tea per say I would say it would definitely work as a nice cuppa in winter. Will have to get some sometime.
Note: Frank can you please include steep times and temps on the labels again? I miss it.
What a yummy treat. The peach actually tastes juicy and the roobios is not overwhelming. I can see myself purchasing this one. Good stuff!
I taste the mint and I taste the chocolate but for some reason it just didn’t work for me, so it just wasn’t my cuppa tea. A bummer indeed.
Delicious and sweet can’t wait to have some more tomorrow.
Wow, this is so creamy and smooth. It tastes and smells much better then the original I got. I am starting to think the original stuff I got had something wrong with it. This is fantastic!
Seriously this is FREAKIN’ awesome. Full of body, spice, and chocolate. Decadently delicious!
While I am not enjoying this one as much as I was hoping to it does in fact deliver. It is very berry indeed. It just turns out too tart for me and I think I will add some tea honey to this next time around. I was also hoping to identify each fruit on it’s one throughout the sip but it really just turns into it’s own sort of super fruit. Keep in mind it is good just not what I thought it would be.
Bumping up, I had this today in my insulted L.L. Bean Canteen and it stayed perfect for over 9 hrs and yes, I made a lot. Nevertheless, I got the steep time perfect this time and it is amazing. Mind you I am not a huge fan of banana tea but this one looked awesome and I am so happy I got this.
This is crazy, it actually tastes buttery. The dry leaves smell absolutely AMAZING! The finished product tastes great as well. I found this one to be disturbingly similar to the real deal. Very cool!
I don’t know but maybe because this was one of the “12 Teas of Christmas” it just tasted a whole lot better this time around. Very yummy indeed, especially after the day I had yesterday. Low tire pressure, crazy at work, sick child that only had a little over 4 hrs of sleep and that means I did too. My body hurts so bad but after drinking this jem I did drift to my happy place for a very special moment.
