5 Tasting Notes
I’m not really into black teas but my coworker offered me some of this. I liked the smell more than anything. Really nice and clove-y. But without additives it was a little too bitter for my taste. Maybe I steeped it too long. I’ll probably never buy this one.
My favorite tea right now—maybe just because it’s fall and I haven’t tried many spiced teas yet. But I just love the smell and the fact that it’s sweet and spicy on its own without me having to add any sweetener. The longer I steep the better.
I’ve now tried this one twice with no additives and I’m not loving it. It smells wonderful and the black cherry comes through strongly, but it’s weirdly bland otherwise. I do want to try it with some almond milk and sweetener and see how that goes.
I love the fragrance of this, but not so much the grassy aftertaste, which gets worse the longer I steep. Overall not a bad tea for when I want something slightly caffeinated in the afternoon at work. I might try it with some honey, I think it’d be good.
I think the bags are really cool, for one thing, and it smells so good as it’s steeping. A little bitter the first time I drank it, not one of the teas that’s good enough for me to drink without sweetening. I love the creaminess that comes from the vanilla, and this was my first go at hibiscus which was delightful too.
