34 Tasting Notes
Brewed my last cup of this today. I did not think I would enjoy it as much as I have. I think it’s because the bitterness of the tea cuts some of the fakeness of the vanilla flavor, making it less foofy and more robust with almost a toffee undertone.
Delicious! Nothing special about this black tea except that it isn’t bitter or astringent, and has a pleasant malty flavor, so I don’t have to doctor it up at all. I could easily drink cup after cup and not get tired of it. If this were a beer, I’d call it a session beer.
Good, but not as good as the blend from Carytown Teas, which is the one I’m used to.
I was hoping for something more, but this is pretty much just a pleasant Earl Grey.
Delicious! Love the strength of the cardamom in this tea. It also has a sweet creaminess that reminds me of kheer.
My sister, Em, gave this to me for Christmas this year. She gave us each teas that were supposed to match us, and I have to be honest, I wasn’t sure what she was thinking on this one. When I smelled it, the vanilla overpowered everything, with a sweetness that reminded me of potpourri. But, I gave it a try.
The first cup was good, as were the next few, but the strong, sweet vanilla continued to overwhelm the rest of the flavors. Until this evening, when I finally caught a whiff of cinnamon. I love cinnamon tea, and with the sweet vanilla this has become one of my favorite flavored teas. I can imagine it would be good as a tea latte.
I brewed a pot this morning and refrigerated it. It is quite delicious cold. Tart and refreshing, and kind of like powdered fruit drinks, only not as cloying.
Maybe I’m not brewing it right, but I’ve tried twice, following the directions on the sample package, and it doesn’t taste like much more than hot water.
The smell is delightful, and I like the tartness from the hibiscus and cranberry. The tea is sweet enough on its own, so I drank it plain. I think it would probably be delicious iced on a hot summer day.
Just finished the 2 oz. I bought to try this out. I started having just a cup in the evening, but this week I began brewing a pot before bedtime as they suggested. I’m not sure if it has helped me sleep, though.
I like the flavor of chamomile, which was my bedtime tisane before I tried this. This blend has a certain tang that took some getting used to. I think it might be fennel. Anyway, it’s not bad, but I think I’ll go back to plain old chamomile.
