33 Tasting Notes

I received this as a sample in the mail with my order. I brewed it following the instructions and made it as an iced tea. It’s strong enough that there’s no way this could be considered weak, yet all I can taste is the obvious blueberry with hints of pineapple. I know there is apple and a few other things in the blend, but they are lost on me. The blueberry is really overpowering. There’s a funky flavor at the finish that I can’t identify making it almost medicine like.

Flavors: Blueberry, Fruity, Pineapple

It’s really good. This was a part of a three flavor Coconut variety pack. It’s really light, yet still flavorful. No sweetener is required. It’s yummy as is!

This tea is just amazing! I ordered it online and I’m glad that I did. It is a strong blend so I find that it’s delicious with the little bit of sugar and cream.

Yum!At first I wasn’t sure what to make of this blend being that I didn’t like the Samurai Chai Mate & White Ayurvedic Chai blen. But thankfully this one surprised me. It doesn’t really taste like a Chai to me. More like a rich cinnamon tea. It smells really spicy just like it tastes. I’ll be enjoying this blend! I used 1 tsp of each with about 12 oz of water.

I didn’t care for this at all….I’ve heard others rave about this combo, but for me it was sort of gross.

Okay this is my 3rd or 4th time drinking the tea and it doesn’t taste as good to me as it did the first time. It doesn’t taste anything like spice cake and it sort of has an odd finish to it….Strange.

I received some of this from fellow Steepster member, Nicole. It came from a store called “Tea Market”, but they repackage other companies tea. I’m sure it’s this one. It looks identical.

Anyways, this tea is just okay. It sort of taste flat to me. There are no distinguishing flavors in my personal opinion. I wouldn’t purchase it, but I’ll finish the sample that I received.

Thanks Nicole!

I am pretty sure it’s from Capital as well.

I love this. It’s the perfect size for at work. It works perfectly and the mesh basket is really is fine, which I like. No floating baby leaves in my tea!

The only thing that I wish were different is that I wish the glass were a bit heavier. It just feel so delicate in the hand. The box says that it’s dishwasher and microwave safe, but I’m nervous because of the light weight of the glass. I’ll surely use only the top rack in the dishwasher, or just hand wash it.

I had one of these…it was great until I broke it! :(

Awe, that sucks! I had a feeling that it’s delicate. How did you break it?

Stephanie

Oh, I don’t remember…it was months ago. At least I still have the nice metal steeper! :)

I received this as a sample with my order. According to the chart, I was supposed to receive Pistachio Cream instead, but I ended up with this. I was sad when I saw it instead of what I really wanted to try. I actually ordered on the day that I knew that would be a sample. Oh well. I don’t prefer green tea, but it’s okay. I think I don’t like the roses in it. I would never purchase anything with roses as the main ingredient, it just taste odd, like I’m eating flowers. I’ll finish the cup and maybe make another from the same leaves, but I surely wouldn’t buy it.

Hello all. My name is Tamara and enjoy both tea and coffee. I go through blocks of time where I drink one more than the other, and right now I’m all about tea. Chai tea to be specific. I’m experimenting with different flavors and brands. :-) I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea for a while, mostly Teavava, but I still consider myself a novice.

I’m very excited to have found this community! I look forward to meeting other tea lovers and possibly doing some tea swaps!

In addition to my food blog, you can find me writing about books!
