355 Tasting Notes
This tea is like candy. Tropical candy. No sugar required! I’m not sure it’s my favorite, but here I am drinking it again! Kinda fun for the afternoon. Would probably be amazing iced!
I wasn’t sure about this one at first. It has a really strong potpourri-like smell, but I really like it. It has almost a fermented berry taste at the front end of the sip, and a lavender floral taste at the back end of the sip. Very complex, but strangely relaxing. It must be the lavender. Anyway, definitely a keeper. Will be buying more of this!
Just had another cup of this. It definitely tastes like a buttery caramel cookie. It’s best brewed strong with milk and sugar…a definite dessert tea. Think I might get some more…I’m almost out. Sharing tea with friends is causing me to run out sooner than I thought, but the upside is I have room for new tea!
Just made a big pot of this and shared with friends, who came over for our own high tea. They loved it. One actually asked for a second cup. Perfect with the Jamaican banana scones and tea sandwiches I made!
My husband got me this tea for Christmas. He was right on for picking a good flavor for me. It’s a really nice cinnamon tea, with a touch of butter, but on the weak side as far as flavor goes. Good with breakfast. I guess it’s limited, so once it’s gone, that’s it, but there are 50 tea bags, so I’m sure I’ll have it for awhile.
So I’m trying this one out again. First time I couldn’t pick up any vanilla. It just tasted like rooibos. This time, I think because I was really looking for it, I can smell the vanilla and taste it a bit too. Not that exciting, really, but if you want simple, this is it.
So based on a list provided by someone on steepster, I think this may be discontinued, but I’m hoping maybe they’ll come up with a s’mores tea to replace it. It really is a nice sweet toasty tea, but it does feel like it’s missing something….perhaps graham crackers and chocolate? ;) First time I opened the bag, it didn’t smell anything like what I pictured, but it kinda grew on me. Hoping for a great replacement. Hint hint to DavidsTea!
Probably my all-time favorite tea from DavidsTea. It’s so deliciously nutty and the raisins add sweetness! Absolutely the best with milk and a little sugar. The worst thing about this tea is that because the Brazil nuts are heavy, it costs more for less tea. Gonna have to restock soon!
Took me awhile to figure out if I liked this one. Kind of like a floral earl grey tea. Good for first thing in the morning, and maybe afternoon high tea with the girls! I’ll have a chance to find out this weekend as I’m having some friends over for our own high tea! Making scones, tea sandwiches, and desserts! So fun! And sometimes, I think, yummier than going out to a tea place.
I love this fruity rooibos. Lupicia rooibos teas are so much smoother than other rooibos teas I’ve had and don’t leave a weird aftertaste. This one is perfect for an afternoon or evening respite.
