11 Tasting Notes

To me, this tastes like a generic white tea and ginger blend. I wanted to taste the gingerale but all I could taste was a faint, very far off ginger in a basic white tea base. I think I may have overstepped.

First Try! (with salt and cooler brew temp)

How I got my brew on…
Brew amount: 1 level teaspoon to approx. 8 oz. of water
Brew temp: 200°f (definitely getting a new kettle after the holidays have passed)
Brew length: Approx. 5 minutes (forgot to set the timer but kept an eye on the clock)
Added: A pinch of salt, after first sip

Smells like…
In the bag: Nothing at all. I opened the bag, sniffed, and smelled nada. Very strange.
In the cup: A faint buttery note but no popcorn :(

Tastes like:
Without salt: Black tea with a far-away whisper of butter.
With salt: Holy cow. Butter galore. A little too much butter for my taste. Slightly fruity black tea base.
Aftertaste: Faint (in this case I mean almost non-existent) popcorn

Second Try! (with sugar, hotter brew temp)

How I got my brew on…
Brew amount: 1 heaping teaspoon to 8 oz. water
Brew temp: 210°f (took a lot of work to get my poor kettle to boil water to this temp!)
Brew length: 5 minutes
Added: Sugar and a pinch of salt.

Smells like…
Corn pops cereal! Yummy.

Tastes like…
With sugar: Black tea with a hint of butter. No popcorn to be found.
With sugar and a pinch of salt: Black tea with a hint of salty butter.
Aftertaste: Salt and butter, with a hint of popcorn. Wow. Finally! :D

Note:
The color was light and somewhat yellow for a black tea. Does this have something to do with flavorings? Or perhaps the blend of black teas used?

Overall…
A nice novelty but not one that I would drink on a regular basis and I’m not sure I’ll keep this one around.

Nutty and creamy. For some reason, I expected this to taste of hazelnuts but I was pleasantly surprised when it didn’t.

Smells like a sugar cookie, tastes like a sugar cookie. How does Celestial Seasonings do it?
There is a slight citrus note, which I’m not sure why Celestial Seasonings decided to stick in there, but it’s yummy all the same.

Am I the only person who thinks this tea is awesome? Not only because it’s an awesome novelty but it tastes good. I was surprised that the cucumber notes came through clearly. I was tempted to put salt in my tea, which is a first.

The experience did remind me of a spa.
