536 Tasting Notes
Thank you Ninas Paris for this sample!
mmm it smells just like peachy rings! This brewed up much darker than I expected given the name, but it’s not really an issue. This is a very smooth tea. I love the peach flavor! I think I would rather drink this than actually eat a peachy ring (all that sugar!). Very excellent midday pick-me up too!
I guess this one has been lingering, forgotten in my cupboard for the past few months. I got it while I was trying to avoid caffeinated teas. This is pretty decent for a grocery store tea I guess. It reminds me a lot of the Cha Yen Thai from Teavana (but cheaper!). It would actually be a good, cheap substitute for this imo.
I hate this tea.
I don’t know if I’ve ever had a tea this terrible before. I cannot even bring myself to take more than a few sips. It just tastes weird. Sweet, kind of bitter, and has this sharp odd flavor I can’t pinpoint. I don’t know what to do with the rest of this box, but the trashcan is looking a bit inviting.
I’m so glad my tea samples arrived today! I thought they had been eaten by the post.
The bag this came in did not have a suggested temp. on it, so I just went with boiling water.
Dry, this smells very nice! I can smell the violet, which is the biggest reason I chose this one. Once brewed the base is very tasty, it reminds me of another gift tea which I have logged on here somewhere. The violet is very upfront. There are other flavors too that I cannot put my finger on, probably the rhubarb (I’ve never had it!). This is a really great dessert tea and I can’t wait to brew this again.
I’ve come to really love this tea. It really helps calm my stomach when it’s feeling upset. This is, as I’ve said, a no-nonsense tea. All the flavors are very sharp and in your face, especially the lemon balm. But there are also notes of black tea, nuts, and chocolate competing for the spotlight. I would definitely buy this again.
