158 Tasting Notes
Smells: vegetal, salty, and even sugary.
Taste: Very interesting-
I was skeptical a tea could taste “buttery” after reading some of the other reviews on this, but it does remind me a little bit of buttered shellfish (in a good way). I’m also getting a mild grassiness, and faint sweetness. I got this in a sample, and will have to buy some more and experiment with different temperatures and steep times. Overall I think this is a winner.
Taste and smell is mostly cinnamon and tea, but it’s not overpowering. Smoother mouthfeel and taste than most of the other chais I’ve had. It reminds me a bit of a lot of christmas blends I’ve had. In latte form it’s good, and probably in my top 3 chai latte list. As it’s cooling I’m starting to taste more of the pepper.
Smell: All Berry.
Taste: This is totally reminding me of all of the berry bubble gum I loved as a kid, bringing me back in time. I don’t really taste any of the maple syrup in here, but then again I don’t feel like reaching for the sugar; this seems sufficiently sweet by itself. I don’t like many fruity flavored teas, but I would re-order this.
I’m not usually into coconut, but this sounded interesting, so I’m giving it a try.
I’m detecting the following:
pre-steep scent – coconut
Steeped scent – vanilla, coconut
Taste – coconut mostly, vanilla, and also something that reminds me of butterscotch. Very flavorful tea. I like it quite a bit more iced than hot.
