117 Tasting Notes
I love raspberries. I do, however, wish there were more fruit teas without hibiscus. I’m just not a fan of that flavor. So I really enjoy the initial taste of this tea but not the finish. It makes for a decent iced tea, though, and I’ve found myself brewing it pretty frequently for that purpose. (I’d brew it a heck of a lot more often if it wasn’t for the hibiscus, though!)
I hate to give a terrible first tasting note for this tea, but it’s hard to describe the flavor. It doesn’t taste like anything I’ve ever had before. It reminds me a little bit of the smell of clean hay, with a slighty spicy aftertaste. I don’t think it’s destined to become a favorite, but it’s definitely worth trying.
This is probably my favorite flavored rooibos so far. (To be fair, I’ve only tried three.) The vanilla isn’t overpowering, and it’s creamy and rich tasting. It’s slightly weird drinking something so milky-tasting that doesn’t have the consistency of milk, but I adjusted and it was only a small weirdness anyway. I love this stuff.
I really, really liked this tea. I used 6 balls and 16 oz. of boiling water. Let steep for 3:30. It was fantastic. I’ve had a lot of black teas in the last few years, and this is one of my favorites. It was robust but smooth. I didn’t get any cocoa taste, but I love the way the balls smell (wow that sounds dirty). Will definitely be buying this again.
