This is the last of my Stash pumpkin. I haven’t drank any in a while, and I figured Halloween was the perfect time to drink the last tea bag. I remember I complained it didn’t have enough pumpkin in it. It still doesn’t, but there is more pumpkin here than I remembered. Not a bad tea. Though if I drink a black tea I usually don’t prefer decaf. But a good fall tea!
575 Tasting Notes
More bad Twinings tea. I didn’t think hibiscus should have went with these other flavors and it was overpowering them too. I like the idea of a cherry and cinnamon tea but Twinings teas just don’t work for me.
Not the typical rooibos flavor. I get more of the berry flavor and the berry flavor reminds me of Celestial Seasonings Berry Zinger. That one isn’t great. I wish they didn’t add peppermint. It doesn’t belong in this tea and takes away from the other flavors. I’m a bit disappointed, as I love Good Earth’s chai…
It doesn’t seem like there would be much here to be a strong tea. And there is an off scent here too. I’m not sure what it is. This tea needs more to it. The slight cinnamon flavor is nice.
There was really no flavor here, blueberry or otherwise. It’s usual that I can’t taste any blueberry flavor in teas. And the black base for this was very mild and flavorless too.
I always like a good rooibos. This didn’t have a ton of flavor but I may have over steeped it. This has a really deep red color. It also may have slightly absorbed the flavor of another tea, if it’s possible.
There wasn’t anything special here. Are there any good raspberry teas? Raspberries are my favorite. I couldn’t really taste the base either. Didn’t taste like a black tea to me. Maybe this was an older teabag.
A nice light tea that reminded me of oolong, but honestly I’ve avoided green teas and have sipped more oolongs than green. Or anything more than green teas. But I love oolong so it’s a good thing this tastes like it. But maybe oolong tastes like green tea?? This is the only Teavana I’ve tried, but since it is so expensive, I probably won’t be trying much of it! I’d rather try the smaller shops anyway.
I was expecting more fruit flavor here. Or any. There is a mild scent of fruit. I really love their vanilla infused tea better, but I’m partial to anything vanilla. BUT this does make for an excellant rooibos tea, regardless. Not bad for an Ollie’s find at $1.50 for a box of 24! Six cents a tea bag and it is delicious!
There is supposed to be many ingredients here, but I’m really only tasting a bit of spearmint. I might have oversteeped it. Seems a bit bitter to me… it’s an odd bunch of things anyway.
I bought this today at Ollie’s. It was in their ad for this week. Of course, I came to Steepster to see if they were any good before purchasing. It seems the Steepster consensus was yes, Suffuse can make a good tea. I picked up three boxes. I wish I had found some of the other flavors they have though, like pumpkin, apple and eggnog. It seems that Suffuse only makes rooibos teas, but I love rooibos. Anyway, this is delicious and silky smooth. I love any vanilla infused tea and a rooibos already has a vanilla flavor on its own. Smelled really good too. This one works well! They are caffiene free so they might become my go-to teas before bed, especially with winter right around the corner!
The rooibos and coconut taste great together in this one. The coconut isn’t a weird coconut like some teas feature. A perfect amount of sweet flavor here too.. maybe that’s the butterscotch flavor? I’m not tasting the cinnamon that is supposed to be in this though. Very smooth.
This is lacking flavor. It doesn’t have that full flavor that a chai should have. The spices aren’t there and the black tea is a bit tangy. I don’t even taste the stevia that should be in it (that I would prefer not to be in it anyway). It’s very plain!
I didn’t taste anything yummy about this yumberry. The flavor was a bit weak and there was something weird here that I’m guessing was the licorice powder.. There seemed to be a lot of ingredients here for such a weak tea.
Any chai flavor here kind of gets rid of any rooibos flavor. It’s an odd chai.. it seems like only half the spicy ingredients are here or something. And I also don’t like the stevia leaf in it. It’s not bad, it just could be better.
This did remind me of Thin Mints or York Peppermint Patties. The flavor is more mint than chocolate. But I don’t know what kind of oolong is supposed to be here. I like it though.
Again, not much flavor for a chocolate tea. Strawberries too. Really no flavor here for me… I don’t know… it seems like there should be a specific steep temperature and time for each tea, and each tea is different. I try not to pour just boiled water on any tea, because I think it might “burn” the flavor out of a tea.
WHOA holy flavor. I was that shocked, yes. I don’t know where all that sugary sweetness comes from! It is delicious! It reminds me of the Hot Tamales candies that I love. I don’t know what the “three types” of cinnamon are here, but they are magic. There has to be some sort of sugar in this though, it is so sugary and it is consistant throughout the entire cup. The color of the steep is a nice brownish dark orange. As for a black tea, it isn’t too strong, really letting the cinnamon shine.
I thought this was supposed to be a gold color but my steep turned darker. This has a nice sweet flavor that stays with you.
eh, another blah Twinings tea. And this one was supposed to be chai and pumpkin! I didn’t find much of a pumpkin flavor here. This seemed like a mainly cinnamon flavor, but there was something off about the cinnamon too.
The smell is nice, but I don’t really taste anything chocolatey. It leaves my mouth a bit dry, if that makes sense. I guess the only reason to drink a decaf tea is if its after midnight. Really, are there any good chocolate teas? I haven’t found any yet…
I can’t find this on the site.. maybe my sample is old. But there is barely any flavor here. There isn’t enough black tea here to call it a black tea. You think there would be if it is called “hearthside spice”. And it is a cold day in the middle of September! Yikes. I’m not ready for winter yet, even with a bunch of tea…
This one sounded really good, but I may have steeped it too hot. There isn’t much flavor here.. but I’m confused at what the base of this tea is. Is it a black tea? It just mentions the flavors… the website does say it has caffiene though.
This has such a distinct smoky scent. Russian Caravan teas really like to be the strongest smelling teas, but they taste good. I keep my Russian Caravan away from my other teas because it is so overpowering. They are pine smoked, so they smell like a really nice campfire. This one is great. It would make for a great fall or winter tea… for some reason I was drinking it while it was 80 degrees out. I think it would be interesting to have a Russian Caravan tea have a marshmallowy &/or graham crackery taste so it would be like S’mores around a campfire!
