63 Tasting Notes
I LOVE this tea. Part of my winning contest prize pack from Rachel.
I was a bit leery as I’m not a rhubarb fan, but the strawberry is awesome and the rhubarb is mellow in the background. I loved the oolong as well. I did a quick rense of this then just 180 for 2.5 minutes (pretty fast and low) and it worked great. Good stuff!
Yikes,what an odd tea!
I’m generally not a black tea fan (get that out there). This one smelled and tasted strongly of chocolate and cocoa powder to me. I may have made it a bit strong (used 4 balls for about 12 oz). A tad astringent and as described bittersweet.
Thanks Stephanie for the sample!
It a good tea. I’m a huge rooibos guy and I love the taste of lemon in all teas. The lemon in this guy didn’t “wow” me but it was there. It’s a mellow evening kind of tea. I prefer my Lemon Dreams I think at night, but this guy would work in a pinch no problem.
Such a different tea.
I was sure it wasn’t my thing after a few sips. I can taste the cilantro mostly (not a bad thing I like cilantro) but the pineapple was strangely absent. So I’m sitting here looking through a couple message boards ignoring the tea for a bit when out of nowhere I taste pineapple. It had been a good half minute since I’d taken a tip and it just popped up out of the blue when I wasn’t thinking about it (so strange!).
So now that it’s cooled some and it’s got me intrigued, I’m back to it and it tastes a bit different. I can now taste a LIGHT flavoring of pineapple mixed in. The strong cilantro has mellowed a bit and the flavors seem to be getting along better.
What an interesting tea. Not sure it’s my thing but I can certainly appreciate it.
Getting late in the evening so time to see if this stuff works!
It, of course, smells like lemon and chamomile. Nothing hiding there.
It’s relaxing for sure. Nothing sharp or lasting in it. Smooth to drink. The lemon is the most distinct but it’s not “overdone”. A very tasty treat. I plan to have this tea on many a late night!
Got this in a swap with Starfevre Thanks!
Ok, I have to say that smelling this brings back a drink I have long forgotten about….TANG! It smells just like tang with the citrus orange smell….mmmmmm
In taste it reminds me slightly of the seven berry sangria in that it’s bold and in your face. Nothing subtle here. It’s a pleasant citrus taste though. Still think I’m drinking tang …
Short review on this one
They certainly smell the part, but the taste is like a poor clone of my treasured Phoenix Jasmine Pearls. A washed out, shallow flavor. It’s still easy to drink but I miss th depth I normally get with jasmine green teas.
