1271 Tasting Notes


Another gift from my sister, a sample of this.
Hmm. I was expecting something…. I dont know. More butterscotchy? I’m not quite sure why I thought that.
I can taste the buttery flavor in this, but not any of the rum. Still, its enjoyable. Its one of those teas that you were glad you were given, rather than bought. This little bit has satisfied me on it.
Thanks, sis!

First to review this, eh? Well, tall-ho!
First observation is that, when hot water first hit the tea bag, the water turned purple! It has turned, upon further steeping, into a rich magenta color. Woah.
I cannot say that I get any rose flavor out of this at all. I get a tart sweetness, which could be the infamous hibiscus (never before has a flower had so polarizing an effect as it does here on Steepster). I cant say I’ve had enough hibiscus to really form a strong opinion, but I’m dissapointed in this.
I was expecting something more… English. The idea of a decaf rose tea was very appealing, but all in all I’m glad this was just a sample.

Ah, a desert tea was in order today, and this was just the ticket. Minty, with a creamy base. Very nice.
I have just about a cup of this left, after this small pot of tea. I’ll restock again when the holidays roll around again.

Short steep- a lot of tea in my strainer baskets, and still this tastes more like coconut than anything else to me. Hmmmm.

I figured I have more than enough tea, and some incoming (eep), so I should sip down some.
You really do get what is advertised, here. The cherry and chocolate are noticable, and pleasant. Still, it doesnt stir my soul, so I’m not heartbroken that its my final cup of this.
Many thanks to my sister, who is the giver of this.

(Sherlock was amazing! I love Mary, as it turns out. Now I cant wait for episode three!)
I love Tower of London. The fruit is almost a savory fruit, and the touch of honey to the flavor is magnificent.
I’ve paired it, this morning, with an english muffin with clover honey on it. Delicious. Highly reccomended.

This tea would go well with anything honey flavored. To me, it’s kind of a punchy tea, and the contrast sounds delicious.

I have been promised the second episode of Sherlock tonight, but my Sherlock buddy is off playing hocky! Gah. Get back here, stupid Sherlock-buddy, so I can watch detectives in great coats.
In other news, this tea remains a creamy cup of spices, and very nice as an after dinner tea.


I won’t get to watch (the first episode) until Wednesday. I am so excited.


Its good! I’m hopping up and down to see episode two!

Roswell Strange

Oooh! I hope you both enjoy the episodes you’re on respectively. Both are just absolutely amazing!


I agree! And, no spoilers, but I’m pleasantly surprised by Mary as an addition to the little crew.

I am barely upright and awake at the moment. I needed a reliable and tasty tea to ease me into today. Bingo.
This is the perfect spiced orange tea. Its so warm and well balanced.

drank French Vanilla by Simpson & Vail

This is not my favorite vanilla. I’m trying all the tricks, overleafing, lowering the steep time, rasing the steep time. Its all resulted in a dusty tasting black base, with a suggestion of vanilla following afterwards.
Its not a bad tea, I should say. So far I havnt found it bitter, but its not the highly coveted perfect vanilla tea that I am questing for.

Well, I can certainly smell the cherry of this cherry and chocolte blend. And the fist sip reveals a lot of cherry flavor.
It does taste a bit like a cherry liqure chocolate. Huh. Somehow I wasnt expecting that.
It is just the tiniest bit artificial tasting, as well, but not aggresively so. I’m alright with overlooking the slight fakeness to the taste, as its an interesting combo.

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
