16 Tasting Notes
What a strong aroma! As soon as I opened my 2oz bag I knew I was in for treat. Powerful scents of honey with faint lemon creeped out of the bag. The tea brewed strong, so you only need a little bit of the loose leaf in your infuser. The taste is a very soothing honey flavor backed by the kick of the herbal green tea. As with most black teas I’ve tried, the flavor does not linger at first. After a few minutes of sipping on this tea I get a better sense of the honey flavor.
This time I put a little more tea in the infuse and steeped it for a bit longer. This caused a bit more of the mango flavors to surface. It steeped dark brown. I can barely see the bottom of my mug. As expected, the flavors are stronger, a little better than the last time I brewed it.
The aroma of the dry tea is powerful and full of Apple. It kind of reminds me of artificial tangy apple gum. Running hot water through the infuser brings on a wave of pink and purple in my mug. The color of this tea is beautiful! The flavor is pretty well blended between hibiscus and apple. It tastes fruity and tangy, but fades quickly leaving a faint apple cider taste.
Very creative blend of tea! Right out off the bat, the tea bag smells deliciously chocolaty. It kinda smells like coca-puffs cereal. The tea steeps an amber brown. The peppermint flavor is stronger than chocolate, but both are pretty weak. My mouth is left feeling minty fresh with a tiny chocolaty after taste.
