Still delicious. This will make a handsome resteep after my cup has emptied..
It was my yummy first thing in the morning tea today. I like to think I don’t like flowery teas, but there are definitely floral notes in here and I enjoy it anyway. Sweet, though it can get a titch bitter if left to steep to long. A lovely tea, really.
A perennial favourite, I’ve just enough time to finish this mug of deliicous spearmint tea before work is over. The name says it all – There are no other ingredients and there is no confusing the taste. I’ve finally come to understand that non-mint nuts are afraid of mint teas tasting like toothpaste – no danger of that here. Just a delicious warm, fragrant mint tea. Makes me nostalgiac for the field of mint that grew beside the driveway of my ‘childhood home’.
Dry teabag smells like Raspberry Kool-Aid…sweet sweet sweet. While steeping, the tea is a very pink shade and smells much the same, though the sugar smell is toned down a bit, it still smells like raspberry juice. Maybe a sugar added concentrate instead of Kool-Aid.
First sip tastes much like it smells. Definitely raspberry, but not like I am eating a raspberry. It tastes artificially sweetened – Like raspberry Sorbet! It tastes almost exactly like Chapman’s raspberry sorbet. I still like it, but it is a bit strange in a tea. The longer you steep it the more the tartness will come out, though the sweet doesn’t go away so it’s interesting.
Still delicious, This cup has come out a little more citrusy than my first few, though the only difference is a lower water temperature. It’s a lovely tea for right now, easing the transition from yummy lunch break to work again.
This time I actually find it a little bitter at the end, maybe over-steeped. I think I would like a tiny bit of sugar and/or cream in it. Inherited habit!
Still don’t feel the need to re-buy this one. I will drink what I have, but playing with steep times hasn’t made the tea any more interesting (except for the colour, which starts out neon yellow and settles down to a lovely yellow orange. But colour shouldn’t matter, right? :D )
I feel like a McDonalds commercial – I’m loving it! (Still…)
Still loving it. Doesn’t taste as orangey as it smells, but smell is such a large factor in taste that it all balances out. Hits my sweet citrus needs, and would make an interesting combo with any number of my favourite lemon teas.
The most authentically apple thing I’ve had in the last few weeks. I quite enjoyed it, though one bag to two cups wasn’t my best idea. Ah well, it conserves the tea.
Smells and tastes a bit like green apples – sort of on the candy side, but quite nice. After the terrible Celestial Seasonings Apple Cinnamon episode, I am pleased to find an apple I like.
Smells AMAZING. The taste is not nearly as strong as the smell, but I did pour two cups out of one bag, so a one bag to one cup ratio will likely increase the orange scent. The falvour alone makes me happy – was a treat of a tea.
