72 Tasting Notes
I still love this tea, but have discovered that the secret to its infusion is by using tea bags, rather than an infuser that lets the leaves open up. I know all those things about surface area, resteeping, blah blah but this one tastes best when confined :-) Only then will you get the taste of vanilla cupcake!
I am so glad I bought some of this, and need to go back for more ASAP. This is amazing!! Tastes just like dark chocolate. In a tea. I like that it’s JUST cacao, because I’m getting tired of those chocolate blends and really just needed something like this. I love it. Like Jessie, I can’t wait to do splendid things with this tea.
I legit cannot stress enough that I am going to STOCK up on this tea before it’s gone. This tea is amazing – so much cinnamon, so much heat!!! I truly love it, and want to drink it every single day until I die. I don’t know how much I’ll have to buy to make this possible. I’ve considered buying 1kg. I grabbed a cup of this today, and was sad when I finished it. Must… Have… More… Hot Lips. Thanks to DT for coming out with a tea that’s perfectly complex without an excess of ingredients!! It tastes the same as filling your mouth completely with cinnamon hearts.
Dear Goji Pop,
You are so yummy, just like bubble gum,
Sometimes you’re sour, but mostly you’re sweet.
Will you marry me?
So yummy!! I took steep.it’s advice and only steeped this for 30 seconds, and it turned out perfectly. Sometimes I think that this tea has a strange taste, but as it cooled, that taste went away and it was pure citrus-y delight! I was also happy because I got a good resteep out of it! That took away some of the bitter feelings that my wallet was holding against this tea.
Oh me! Oh my!
It’s so funny, the first time I had this tea, I didn’t like it. Now I drink it a couple times a week, mostly in the evening (often happens after my after-dinner tea, and before my bedtime tea). I prefer it hot over iced. If you leave it to steep for a couple hours and then microwave it, it really gets spicy from the peppercorns. Most of the time I can’t wait that long to drink it, but I love that this tea gives the option of such spiciness!. I love the lemongrass-coconut combination – and I don’t even like coconut. The coconut always makes it feel like the perfect tropical beverage! I love this blend, I think it that it works perfectly but definitely crafted for a certain palate. Probably for people who like to drink their Thai food. Speaking of which, I would love to cook with this, too. I also want to boil it on the stove, chai style, and see how it turns out.
Anyone tried this yet?
Ahhhhh. The delghtfully tasteful Cinnamon Rooibos Chai. I still remember the first time I had this tea, it leaves such an incredible impression. This is such a warming cup of tea, I could drink it anytime, anywhere. I would drink it much more if it weren’t for the horrendous acid reflux that this tea provokes… >:-O
Dropping the rating just a little bit for this tea’s negative effects.
WOAH… Strange. This tea is the epitome of the “too many ingredients” syndrome. I don’t know what’s happening here. Not one flavour stands out, but I THINK I can taste the nettle? It’s not a particularly tropical-tasting tea, so I wonder how much pineapple there actually is… It kind of tastes what I would imagine a cactus would taste like. Maybe that’s the aloe vera? But aloe vera isn’t even listed under the ingredients… You definitely can’t taste the hibiscus.. The liquor doesn’t have a hint of pink to it, it’s more light golden orange. But maybe I didn’t get any hibiscus in my scoop? I’m just utterly confused by this blend. I have nothing else to say but try it only if you’re feeling adventurous.
Out of the teas I tried from Tealish, this is one of my favourites. I CRAVE the currant/cinnamon combo. Dry, it smells mostly of currants. When brewed, I think it smells like candy :) Really, that’s currants and cinnamon. But it tastes like candy, too! You don’t get much of the sencha, but that’s fine in my books as I’m not so into the vegetative taste, especially when I’m in the mood to drink my candy :-) This tea is definitely a gem hidden within a whole lot of rocks, in my opinion :-) And who couldn’t love such a pretty blend?
I like that these teas are not as sweet, they are more tart and true to flavour. I thought this one was good, but maybe had a bit too much… lime? I’m not sure. I wasn’t sure when I was drinking it, but I wish it had a bit more coconut. This one could easily taste even more like a tropical beverage, waiting to transport you to the beach. That being said, this tea was still fantastic, and would probably be even better iced, which I’m excited to try.
