221 Tasting Notes
I had this one this morning/early afternoon. Unfortunately, I didn’t really find this tea to be too memorable. I was struggling to taste the white chocolate pieces. But that also could be because I thought it was a dark chocolate in there… Oops!! Anyway, I did like that it did have a bit of a kick to it. Not in the hot spicy way, but it had an almost zing to it.
I’m not too sure if I’d buy this one again, as I have a few other chai teas that I do enjoy a bit more, but it was lovely to get to try this one. I might try what the other reviewer did on here and steep it longer just to see what happens. Maybe I’ll love it more when I do.
So, this is one from my advent calendar from December that I didn’t try. There were a few that the day I was suppose to have them, I didn’t want to try them, so they have been hanging around since, just waiting and hoping that I’ll find them, and want to try them.
Anyway, so I finally tried this one and it lovely. I agree with a lot of the reviews I read so far about this one. The lemongrass definitely was the main flavour coming through on this tea. But at the same time, I love lemongrass, so I don’t mind. I can’t really pick up much on the other flavours though. Like said before, the lemongrass is the first and really only flavour that you taste. Although, there is a bit of a lovely, subtle zing to it too, that I’m enjoying.
I’m having this one without sugar, which is unsual for me. Normally I add sugar to most of my teas, but this one I didn’t think of it, and I’m glad I didn’t. It’s so lovely on its own. Now I’m going to have some Three Lemon Green again, just to see how they compare.
I have had such a hard time figuring out this tea. I didn’t realize it was going to taste cinnamon-y, so that really threw me off. It smells lovely! The smell alone transports you to another place.
Like I said, the taste really gets me though. I do like it, but I have to get use to it. It’s really a strange tea.
So, it’s the end of January, and the weather is acting weird out there, and it’s been a long week at work. So, I thought I’d dive into this tea again, as it reminds me of warmer times and sunshine.
This tea has definitely helped me out today. It’s lifting my spirits a bit. It’s light and fruity and very delicious.
This tea is lovely. It has a smooth orangey taste to it. I didn’t make it too strong, but I know that if I made it stronger it would be even better. It is delightful. It’s a refreshing tea. And at the same time, warm and comforting.
I would LOVE to try it chilled. And maybe with milk and a little more sugar. I could see it tasting like a creamsicle.
This steeper is awesome. I have the 32oz one, and I absolutely love it. It works like a charm and I’ve never had a problem with it.
The filter in the bottom is awesome for all tea leaves, including the small rooibos leaves. I’m hoping to get the small one soon to replace the one I have from a different company.
I got this one from a coworker. I found it to be a bit tart. Maybe I let it steep a bit longer than I should have, but the colour that came from this one was amazing!
I love the little tea bags it comes in too. It makes it look more like a loose-leaf but just in a bag. The little leaf steam to hook over your teacup edge is also a lovely feature.
I got this one as a Christmas gift from a friend, and just got the chance to try it.
I must admit, the first smell of this one steeped, I was very unsure of it. The first steeping I did, I only did a few minutes, as I didn’t want it to be too strong or go bitter (forgetting this is a herbal tea). My first few sips, I was so unsure. I added a sprinkling of sugar to it, and it really made this tea pop! It became a sweet chocolately treat.
Second steeping, I actually forgot about it for like 5 to 10 mins or so. Maybe longer, I’m not too sure. I was sorta worried that it might have gone bitter or too strong for me to handle, but after adding another sprinkling of sugar, it was pretty good! But it was missing something. I added a splash of milk to it (which normally I would NEVER do with a herbal), and it made this tea come alive for me! It transformed into almost a smooth, chocolatey chai tea. I say smooth, because it didn’t have the same punch that a chai normally has; it was a softer chai taste, but still had that little extra to it. The second cup was inhaled!
I could see this one holding up in a latte for sure, if you make it strong. I must try it! I’ll update this when I do.
I got this one as a sample with an online order that I placed. I must admit, to me, this tea isn’t that memorable. I wanted to really love it, but I didn’t really get the love feeling from this one.
For me, all the flavours kinda just mixed together and there really wasn’t anything that stood out. The walnut flavour was probably the strongest that I got out of it, but even then, I dunno.
I’m wondering if maybe I’ve oversteeped it?
I love this tea. I always drink it with milk and sugar. It’s the tea that I always fall back to when I’m just wanting something quick and simple, but delicious. It’s the tea that I always go to when I need a quick wake-up in the morning, or if I don’t feel very great in the morning.
Update: So, I tried to make myself a pot of this tea on the weekend, and I just couldn’t drink it… I felt so bad ‘cause normally I love this tea, but this time… It wasn’t good. I think my taste buds must be changing. Like I said, normally I love this tea, but I just couldn’t do it.
I think now I just prefer the fresher taste that loose-leaf teas have to offer. Sorry Red Rose Orange Pekoe! :(
