64 Tasting Notes
This tea is very true to it’s scent and the blueberry flavor is very strong! I’ve made this twice now; once brewed according to the instructions and once as a latte with unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I have to say I love this as a latte! The first time around it felt like it was missing something. I have yet to try this iced, but won’t be doing so until the weather heats up at some point. Thank you whatshesaid for the sample!
Thanks to another wonderful gift I received, I am well stocked with tea for quite a while! I don’t know if that will prevent me from purchasing more flavors, but we shall see! Anyhow, I have to admit that I was not completely sure about this flavor when I saw it, but it smelled wonderful. There were a lot of tart notes with strawberry. As I’m drinking it now, I have to say I am bowled over by how good it is! I tried it without sweetener or cream at first and it was tart and refreshing. I’m pretty sure this one would good iced! Since I made it hot, I decided to add sweetener and a touch of cream. I love it even more now! It has the tartness of rhubarb and sweetness of strawberry. I don’t taste any apple notes, which is fine with me. The tartness with the added cream and sweetener reminds me of strawberry cheesecake! I will try re-steeping once this cup is finished. This one will be part of my permanent collection!
Thank you elizabeth229 for the trade! I’ve been wanting to try Salted Caramel for a while, so I was excited when I finally received this in the mail. The smell was sweet when I opened the package, but nothing special. The taste is much better than the scent of the dry leaves. The black base is pretty mellow and the caramel really stands out. I am missing the salt though. I think if there was a touch more salt in this tea, it would be even better. I finished the cup pretty quickly though, so that is good thing. I think this one is a keeper!
I completely forgot that I had this one laying around! This was another sample I received with my last order. I have to say I’m conflicted with this one. The initial smell is that of ginger and citrus, but when it’s brewed the smell reminds me a lot of the Aveda Men product line. I love the smell in the product, but not so much in tea. The taste is not too bad though; the ginger is not too overpowering and I still get the citrus. It’s a tad woodsy as well. I am glad I got to try The Skinny, but I don’t think I’ll be purchasing it.
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!
