59 Tasting Notes
I had this tea hanging around my cupboard and rediscovered it. I love the sweet kick you get after every sip! When I went to cosmetology school, I used to sneak small cups of this tea out after the night was over. It’s definitely nice to see that I still have it around! :-)
I received this sample with my order from them. The initial smell is nearly pure mint. I find it strange that the ingredients listed on my sample pack is different than that of their website.
Mine reads: Chinese black tea, peppermint leaves, candy cane sprinkles, cloves, cinnamon, orange zest, natural and artificial flavoring.
Anyhow, I was expecting this tea to have more complex flavors, due to the ingredient listing. I was disappointed when it was only mint. It’s not a bad tasting tea; it is reminiscent of Aveda’s tea without the licorice root. Though it is nice, I will not be purchasing this one any time soon.
Thank you again to T.C. for this sample! The flavors are pretty balanced between the chocolate and strawberry. That said, this one was just alright. I think if it had a more pronounced chocolate flavor, I would have enjoyed this more. It was nice to try, but I don’t think I’ll be buying this one.
Hmm… I like this one, but I am a bit disappointed. I brewed it for the recommended amount of time and even added more tea in to make it stronger. It brewed up quite weak, though I do taste equal amounts of chocolate and coconut with a hint of cinnamon. I’m hoping it will get better as I continue to drink this one.
I find myself drinking this tea much more than I thought I would. This tea is brewing up stronger now and I think that adding a bit more tea helps in the steeping process. All in all, I am quite happy with this one. :-)
One word: YUMMY!! My wonderful boyfriend was kind enough to order this tea for me (as I was contemplating buying it myself). The smell of the leaves are definitely buttery and is reminiscent of cream cheese icing! I couldn’t wait to brew this one. The taste is definitely cake-y and delicious! There is a hint of chocolate that is not too overpowering. I made this with a touch or cream and a bit of sweetener. I will definitely be buying this one again!
Thank you T.C. for this sample! I was not sure about this tea when I first made it, but it grew on me. It is definitely a marshmallow tea! I was hoping to taste some of the caramel notes, but I couldn’t. I made mine with a little sweetener and cream. Overall, it is pretty good and I may consider purchasing this one in the future!
I bought this tea with a discount and because I felt like having a no frills black tea. This tea was good, though I have had better. All in all, this is a nice tea to have when you’re not looking for something extravagant and in a pinch.
The aroma of this tea is wonderful! The chocolate is pronounced and you can smell the spice. Unfortunately, the smell does not match the taste. I don’t know if I brewed this wrong, but it seems to be pretty weak. I even added more tea leaves and made sure the water was at a sufficient temperature. It got a bit darker, but not much. I was hoping this one would be full bodied. I’m glad this was a sample, otherwise I would have been sorely disappointed.
I am really enjoying this one! The caramel is slight, as strawberry is predominant. Still balanced and tastes wonderful. This tea really satisfies one’s sweet tooth. :-)
This is a good tea. The lemon is not overpowering and it is very refreshing as an iced tea.
