390 Tasting Notes
Things happen …finally…there is a rooibos I appreciate !
It’s not as good as real tea to me but it is nice.
Mango lassi isn’t my favorite Indian lassi (I prefer the mint or the rose one) but this is a beverage I like anyway.
Here the mango aroma is really wonderful and take the head of the notes.
It’s not creamy as a lassi can be but the quality of the mango aroma is really impressive and I really appreciated this rooibos (this is an exploit !)
Thank you Azzrian for the opportunity you gave me to taste this blend.
Thanks too to cteresa for supporting me to continue tasting rooibos :)
Thank you so much Azzrian for sharing this blend with me.
I really enjoy it, I find the green tea base very subtle without any astringency nor bitterness even if I over-steeped it a little.
This is my second Butiki teas only and I am really impressed with this brand.
The pistachio flavour is the leading role – it is clearly creamy but cannot really say I get an iced cream flavour, much more a creamy pistachio (which is perfect to me)
As my mug is cooling, the flavours become more interesting : the pistachio is more & more present and the creamy note totally invades the aftertaste. I imagine it could be a very nice iced tea as well.
I really loved it – thanks again Azzrian
Thanks lovely cteresa for sending it over me.
but I won’t rate it.
I love vanilla (good ones only ! this is an aroma which cannot bear mediocrity to my opinion)
I love ,but really love, raspberry, my favourite fruit.
So what’s the problem ???…it’s me !!!
I trust cteresa (her tastes & opinions are so reliable), this is surely a very good rooibos. I trust Angrboda as well of course, I love so much your reviews and your notes !
The point is I think I really do not like Rooibos …until now…but will persevere : L’appétit vient en mangeant…as we say in French ;)
Thanks so much to Azzrian for sharing this tea with me !
This is my first Della Terras tea and I was very excited to taste it especially because I fell in love with the name of the tea.
… but unfortunately not with the tea itself.
The blend is so beautiful with a lot of multicolored little candies (stars of David and little golden balls).
I found the tea base too light for my taste. The aromas of marshmallows was overpowering to me as well (but after all it is supposed to be a marshmallow tea ! – but I was expecting something with a much more pronounced caramel flavour).
I think this tea delivers its promises to be a marshmallow tea – I have enough blend to do a second big mug of Eight Candles tea and sure I will give it another try.
hello steepsterites !
Happy to recover the possibility to send a note.
I had this tea yesterday afternoon at a Mariage’s tea room.
So perfectly prepared by the wonderful & so kind people of Mariage.
The smell was amazing : just like amaretto – we can say the almond overpowers the 2 other nuts (pecan and walnut)
The taste is just not so impressive, nutty, just nutty.
Pleasant but nothing more.more walnut on the taste, impossible to me to detect pecan…
we can just feel a very very little bitterness due to the nuts but it is not a desadvantage, it adds some personnality to this tea.
Better with crystal sugar, it add some sweetness too.
Well I think I didn’t prepare it properly. It is my first Matcha and I have no tools to prepare it, just drop it in the mug, put some water, tried to mix it it with few water first thanks to a spoon and then dropped the rest of water.
It wasn’t bad but wasn’t exceptional.
I thanks darby for sending me some of her matcha but need clearly to improve the way I prepare it !
I have the chance to drink this blend thanks to LaFleurBleue who sent me a generous sample.
It is a nice and qualitative tea.
The dry leaves are amazing, very long but curved and very dry.
Once steeped, the leaves are very large almost entire.
The scent is not very strong but steeped, the aromas are there.
The tea base is a very good black one.
I really like it without being absolutely in love but maybe because I mainly drink flavoured teas and this one is not.
I’m coming back to tea life after a big cold.
I wanted to taste Nosy Bey for a while now.
The perfume of the dry leaves is absolutely divine : vanilla and peaches.
The aroma is clearly a vine peach head note (not peaches but really vine peaches- In France our vine peaches are almost red (pulp) and the skin of the fruit is more or less grey ).
We can taste a very present and opulent vanilla behind.The black tea base is absolutely sweet and has no hint of astringency.
This is a delightful aroma, vine peach is a wonderfully perfumed fruit and this tea reveals perfectly its qualities.The presence of the vanilla just sublimates it and makes it very generous and luxurious.
A great afternoon tea, almost a fruity dessert tea.
I think I can recognize a DT in a blind test- or blind taste.
I don’t know, there is a signature, something like a kind of special vanilla maybe…an aroma I get everytime I drink one DT.
So this one is a DT as well. I have the same complaint about the tea base, too weak for me, I don’t have the feeling to have a tea but more an infusion, once and again…bis repetita…
The dry leaves scent is a perfection, very spicy and mild cinnamon mainly + pumpkin of course.
I was expecting something stronger as it is a chai but it’s a very light chai to me.
I think I am quite happy with this tea because I normally dislike pumpkin and I found it fair. If the tea base was stronger I would probably even have really liked it.
Forgot to thanks Darby for giving me the opportunity to taste this blend ! Thanks so much Darby
I went to the DF shop to buy in person the tea Figue Fraîche but they didn’t have it !
I wanted a tea with fig so I bought this one at the MF shop.
MF rarely blends figs (Boléro has some but it’s clearly not the leading note).I found this one by chance just looking at their website and when I didn’t have the chance to buy at DF, I did know what to do instead.
So I am the first to review this tea and it is strange because the name of tea is an homage to you dear North Americans.
The aspect of the dry leaves is really beautiful : beautiful big petals of a mysterious blue flower (MF says this is a flower which is growing on the pacific coast…any idea dear pacific coast residents?)
Once I steeped it 5 minutes and it’s too much, astringency was really there and I disliked it.
I did it again with 4 minutes steeping and this is perfect, no trace of astringency nor bitterness.
The scent of the steeped leaves made me very happy : I had the fruits and especially fig.
Drinking it is a little bit different, I got more vanilla & exotic fruits (weird because not mentioned by MF but I picked Mango first I think)and the fig but behind.
The black Chinese tea base is nice
This is a very nice afternoon tea, it’s probably not to me to say but I think is this is a beautiful tribute to America.
