11 Tasting Notes
Yum! The name is spot on, tastes just like a gingerbread man. So good I don’t even have a photo as it went to quick (have a tin coming so will have one up later).
First experience with a Rooibos Tea, it was very fine and a lot of it went through the filter basket in my cheap $7 teapot. Would like to try a unflavoured Rooibos tea as I suspect the flavours in this tea overwhelmed any flavour from the Rooibos
Photos: Will have one up later.
Wow, what an aroma! Opened the packet and it had an amazing, strong smoky smell. It smelled a lot like really good artisan bacon.I’m not sure if this a good thing when referencing a tea, however the tea itself was quite nice, smooth and almost sweet tasting. There wasn’t much of a smokey taste, either that or the smell just over powered it. It did however leave a nice smoky aftertaste.
Have to mostly agree with Miss Sweets review, which is sad because I really wanted to like this tea. Looked and smelled very nice in the packet but that is about it, pretty much ended up tasting like flower water, with very little tea or bergamot flavour.
UGH! Probably one the worst things I’ve stuck in my mouth in a while. I’ve tried Chai syrup flavoured drinks before (Chai Latte etc) and always really enjoyed them, so was quite excited to try Chai Tea. It smelled amazing in the packet and while brewing with cinnamon probably being the strongest smell.
When I drunk it, everything was overwhelmingly strong, mostly cinnamon and an aniseed taste as well and quite peppery. Maybe I made this wrong, brewed too long or put too much in? Have enough left to give it another try, but at this stage I won’t be getting it again.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Pepper
Simple, but good is how I would summarize this tea. Not a lot of malt flavour, and not really a lot else to say about it. Picture here: https://flic.kr/p/o3gdfF
Quite enjoyed this Tea, had a decently strong malt flavour as other have indicated, got a hint of pine but didn’t really notice the manuka flavour. The tea also looks amazing straight out of the packet. Photo here: https://flic.kr/p/oms4gz
