34 Tasting Notes
Ok so I started back to class and that means I am back logged bad on my tea logs! I got my Davids order (1st one ever!!) and was really happy with my purchases for the most part. This tea is not my all time favorite, and I probably won’t repurchase it, but I’m thinking I am going to try it iced and I may have better luck with it cold. There is just something about it I don’t like hot- too much spice or something. I feel like the tea is good quality and very flavorful, it just doesn’t suit my tastes. Wish me better luck with it iced :)
I got this a couple days and am just now getting around to reviewing it! I am drinking it again this morning and I’m really enjoying it. I ordered two teas from Mandala and they were both winners. This is sooo milky tasting, I added a little sweetener and that brought the milk taste out even more. So far in my exploration of milk oolongs, this is my favorite! I will definitely be ordering from Mandala again, I’m impressed by the quality of the teas and customer service:)
I got this in the mail yesterday and drank some this morning as I was getting ready for work. Here lately my mornings have been a race to see how many caffeinated teas I can try before I have to leave for work lol and this was the last one I got in! This was my first order to mandala and when I opened the box there was a handwritten note from them, which I thought was really nice, and 2 samples which was also really cool because my order was small. I am very happy with the way they treat their customers so far! Would definitely re-order based on that alone. On to the tea… This tea smelled wonderful brewing! I love the smell of jasmine! It was not overwhelming though. The taste was subtle and not overwhelming. I could definitely see this being a jasmine tea for someone who does not usually like jasmine teas. The jasmine doesn’t hit you right in the face. I really enjoyed this and can’t wait to try to the milk oolong that I ordered along with this!
So I got a bunch of samples from Fusion Teas and so far I have been on the fence about most of them, but I tried this one this morning and I really like it! I am usually not a huge strawberry fan, but this is balanced perfectly for my tastes. Eventually I am going to get around to getting a big bag of this! Love!
Love this! this is my favorite rooibos blend so far, it doesn’t have a super woody taste and no weird after tastes like I sometime get with rooibos teas and it just has a great blueberry flavor. I like to add cream and sweetener to this and drink it after dinner, which is what I did tonight. I am on my second 2 oz bag of this and I will definitely buy more when it’s gone.
So when I was putting this in my infuser, I did not see any actual tea in it, just pieces of dried fruit. Since normally I only buy herbal (nontea) tea from Teavana, I have not noticed this before. This discovery has brought me to the decision that I will stick to only buying herbals from them in future, because while I love herbal tea, this was supposed to be an oolong lol. At least on the bright side, this probably has very little caffeine in it. This has a very fruity aroma and a very fruity taste, and to my surprise there is some tea flavor that comes out in the taste of this tea. I am fan of pears, so I was excited to try this tea, and it does have a nice pear flavor. I drank it hot, but it seems like it would also be good iced. This is a nice tea, but not something I would repurchase.
So since I got a couple different things in the mail today I have to try multiple things!! This was on sale at Teavana online and since I was getting some more Zingiber Coconut (sp?) I decided to try some of this too since it was only like 3 dollars for two ounces. I have tried hot chocolate with some kind chilis in it before and really liked it, so I was hoping that the chili flavor would stand out. There was a slight chili twist, but it was mostly fruit and chocolate. I also added cream and sweetener so this was a sugary treat that I really enjoyed, and I read somewhere that if you brew this tea on the stove that the chili flavors come out more. Maybe someday I will try that, but tonight I was just to lazy.
