222 Tasting Notes
I finally tried this one even though I bought this a while ago. I ordered 100g of this on the good faith that I would love it, like I love cake.
I was not disappointed. The rooibos is the perfect match for this tea. It is a sweet and almost creamy tea. It has a pretty strong vanilla flavour, or almost like a maple flavour. I can see this being a vanilla cake/icing mix. It definitely would curb any cravings that I have. I think I will have to keep a little of this one on hand for those days that all I want is a sweet treat.
Apparently I haven’t reviewed this one yet??!?!
This tea is amazing! I love the name of it. It sounds cool.
The tea itself… the smell is devine. I close my eyes and take a deep breath in and just devour the smell of it every time I open up my tin. It is amazing. It smells sweet and creamy and just all over lovely.
Taste: I always add milk and sugar to this one. It makes it a sweet creamy cup of heaven. I always resteep my tea leaves too ‘cause it’s so good. Even when steeped a little longer than recommended it tastes amazing. I find too, that only sometimes do I get a chocolate taste to this one. Normally I get more of a caramel taste. Either way though, this is soooo good.
I’ve tried this one once without milk (we ran out and I didn’t realize before I brewed this one) and it was still very good. It was sweet and creamy on its own even.
I still add milk to it even though it tastes good without. There’s just something about black tea with milk in it that screams tea heaven to me.
I’m almost out of this one unfortunately… I’m rationing it until the summer collection comes out, then I’ll add it to my order. :)
UPDATE: Apparently I have reviewed it, I just didn’t realize it. :)
Finally tried this one this morning. It’s a sweet fruity tea that is just nice and quite subtle but also very delicious. It has an almost sweet, creamy strawberry flavour to it.
I could see this one working well iced.
Such a simple, unassuming tea, but very delicious.
I’ve been drinking orange pekoe for years, and it wasn’t until I tried a loose-leaf OP that I finally realized what it was suppose to taste like. I found this one to not be too heavy, as long as you don’t oversteep it. And it has the simple but lovely taste of an OP.
I bought 100g of this, so I should be set for a bit with it.
This tea was a bit of a surprise to me.
About four of us went ahead this past weekend and placed our first order with The Tea Haus. I have never tried their teas before but was dying to. The prices alone made me feel like I needed to try it.
The smell of this one is DEVINE! It smelt good enough to eat. It was sweet and creamy smelling. Even my husband wanted to try it, so I made a large steeper full of it and steeped it for the three minutes they recommend.
He wasn’t a huge fan of it; said it smelt better than it tasted (which in some ways I understand). But I’m also the type that adds the milk and sugar to my tea, (Just skim milk, nothing too heavy) so to me it tasted wonderful. I felt it was kinda similar to Check Mate from DavidsTea. Only difference is Check Mate is a bit more subtle then this one. But this one is so delicious! I think I may have to order more of it. It is amazing.
I’m very excited about my new find of The Tea Haus. I think I’m going to have a lot of happy ordering happening in the future with them. And too, since it’s not too far from home, I may have to pop in there when I’m in town.
This tea is almost overwhelmingly pink grapefruit smell when I open up the bag. I couldn’t believe it! I’ve been fighting a headache off and on for the last couple of hours, so I didn’t really know if I should attempt this one but something in me decided I should.
It is lovely! I know I say that a lot about the teas that I try, but that’s such a great way of describing how I feel about it.
Brewed it still has a strong pink grapefruit smell. It also has this rich pink colour that is gorgeous.
Taste… MMMMMMMMM I added sugar. I always add sugar. But it took any major tart flavour that I knew was going to be in there out. It’s now just a nice refreshing citrus-y tea. I bet this one would be nice iced.
So, this one took a bit before I got any real flavour from it. I had to wait until it cooled down quite a bit and then I finally got the caramel/creamy taste that I was expecting… Given too… I did have it with dinner so that might not have helped.
Anyway, I did find it to be a nice sweeter treat. I don’t think I’ll be rushing out for this one, but it’s not bad.
In some ways I wish I had let it steep a little longer, but in some ways, I’m glad I didn’t. The strawberry is lovely as always, and the ginger adds a little extra kick to it which I really like too. But I think I have to agree with some of the others here. I think they need to take a break from the hibiscus. It is good but I find it to be overpowering in some blends, and it leaves a weird after taste.
I bet this one would be very nice without the hibiscus. I almost wonder how hard it would be to take out the hibiscus to try it.
Anyway, I think I may have to try this one iced as well ‘cause I’m sure it’ll taste good.
This one is lovely. Again, this one was bought for me as a gift from a friend.
I love this one. I probably could have made it stronger this time, but I didn’t. I only have so much here at work with me. But it is so refreshing which is good ‘cause I’m thirsty.
This one brews the colour of apple juice almost. And it has a lovely combo of strawberry and lemonade. And what’s nice is the lemonade isn’t too tart like lemonade can sometimes be.
I’ll be sad when this one is gone. I’ll have to enjoy it a little at a time.
Okay. I tried this one again today at work. I can’t seem to like this one at all. I really tried. I might need to try it with milk ‘cause this tea is just unusal to me. I don’t know what to think.
I tried it without the yogurt pieces this time ‘cause I think they curdled or something last time, but I still wasn’t happy with it. I’ll try it again at some point…
