188 Tasting Notes
Still liking this one today.. a favorite of the green variety so far for me. I had forgotten I had wanted to try this one with some milk or cream this time, but still good without. I think the flavors blend so well with the green that I don’t notice the base so much.
So tempted to go buy an ounce of this since it’s a green that I like. I’m hoping to slowly encourage my taste buds to be more fond of greens… but not sure if I like it “that” much.
I have enough for one more small cup, and if I haven’t decided by then, I will have to see if there is any left & decide from there. If I do grab an ounce, I might be tempted to try the nutmeg cream as well since I saw so many good reviews of it too.
Flavors: Cream, Nuts
Thanks EvaGrimm for sending a sample of this awhile back. It looked like so much fun, I could almost not bear to use it up.
I wanted a black tea this morning, and decided on this one. My old is subsiding, finally, so hope I get accurate taste on this one.
I dry leaf smells sweet and vanilla. Steeped I get sweet honey vanilla, not exactly candy corn, but good. As it cools I get more vanilla and less honey.
I could see this being a great blend in the Fall with apple pie, and other Fall treats.
Hubby had some of this a couple of days ago and raved that “this is what tea should taste like”. Mind you, he is generally a coffee drinker… black, no sugar, no cream.
I had a sip, but still suffering from a cold so not trusting my taste buds completely. I’ll give it a rating when I recover.
Deep, rich, bold tea flavor, but not bitter, even when Hubby steeped it a bit too long. I have a feeling this may be a re-order to keep around as a basic rich black tea for him.
Thanks MissB for such a generous sample of this wonderful tea! You must have known I would just love it.. and you got it right… I do.
I wasn’t sure if I should try this one with the remnants of my head cold or not, but I have been looking through my S&V catalog lately trying to decide when/what to order from them. You see, when MissB sent me a generous sample of Candy Cane & a sample of Cinnamon Chocolate Brownie from S&V I really liked them so I went online looking to see what all they offered and found they had a catalog, it arrived safely and is sitting on the end table by the couch with notes by things I might like to order… narrowing it down is the problem. Anyway, the Coconut Macaroon was one at the top of my list to try… & here she sent it to me.. just like she knew :) I just couldn’t wait a couple of more days.
Dry, I couldn’t make out much fragrance, but my nose isn’t working well either. Steeped, this came through as true coconut macaroon. You know the ones like you get at the Chinese buffet that are dense and sweet and yummy? I hope when I get completely better that I like it even more.
My mom and sister love coconut macaroons too… do I dare share?!?! I’m not sure how my mom would feel about a flavored teas, but my sister enjoys iced fruit teas… bet she’ll love this.
I tried a bit of this one yesterday afternoon. My taste buds are still recovering from a cold so I’m not sure about my thoughts on this one yet.
Yesterday I got caramel and black tea, not much more. I’m hoping that since my tastebuds are inept at the current time that I will enjoy this one more in a few days… Hopefully picking up the pumpkin and the cheesecake. If not, still a very drinkable cup, just hoping it will live up to it’s name for me.
I will hold off on rating this one for now until I can give it a fair shake. Thanks so much Crowkettle for sharing this one with me.
I saw VarieTEA had a tasting note for this and I wanted another black tea this afternoon so I grabbed it. If you read my tasting note a bit ago, you’ll know I have a cold and can’t taste much, so don’t take my note as completely accurate :)
I’ve had this one several times before.. a sample I bought from Della Terra. It wasn’t quite what I was expecting, but still a good tea. I imagined a red hot or cinnamon disk candy when I ordered this one, but I get sweet candy cinnamon of a different kind, no heat, and maybe it’s the strawberry from the pop rocks that give it the odd sweet un-cinnamon smell/taste… ??
I don’t know if I’ll find that red hot/ cinnamon disk candy flavored tea, but I think I’ll be ok w/o it until next fall. I’m dreaming of warmer weather and Spring right now… even though the temperatures have fallen yet again and we are expecting heavy snow Sunday/Monday next week Ugh!
I had this tea a couple days ago and opted not to post due to my last of tastebuds with this crazy cold I’ve had. I would have called it blueberry black when I tried it then.
This morning I thought I’d give it another try since I’m gaining some taste back and wanted a black tea this morning. I completely forgot I had it steeping so I don’t think it fair to rate it this time either. Today I get lots of floral, raspberry black tea w/ no tartness/acidity you might expect with pomegranate.
I wouldn’t have picked this one out myself because I don’t often go for fruit (or floral)teas, except for apple, coconut, or pineapple, but I do find my tastes are changing and I’ve come to enjoy a few of them more and more. I guess up to now I’ve mainly avoided berry and banana teas.. Hubby likes the berry flavored teas (& even some floral), go figure!
I will give this one another try when I get my head cleared up and my tasters back, and give it a fair rating then. :) As it sits right now, it’s a more drinkable cup than I expected I would get from it.
I had a cup of this last night since I was craving the flavor even though my taste buds are not working well with the cold I have. Seem to be a little better every day, but I’m done with it already!
I happily sipped away on this with the little I could taste… It hit the spot. Warm, sweet, cinnamony (I know, it’s not a word). This one may make my list of things to order at some point… Thanks MissB for the introduction.
