18 Tasting Notes

drank Fire Light Chai by Zhena's Gypsy Tea
18 tasting notes

Tis is a pretty good chai, nice and spicy – but not a true favorite. It can get a touch bitter if it steeps too long, but being a rooibos tea it doesn’t get too terribly bitter. Does not require sweetener, but it can add a bit and bring out the flavor very well – honey is recommended if you want it sweet. Recommended for fans of flavorful, spicy chai tea.

165 °F / 73 °C 5 min, 15 sec

drank African Autumn by Harney & Sons
18 tasting notes

This tea smells amazing, you can smell the cranberry and the orange subtly again the lovely red leaf tea. I have now tried this tea both hot and iced – it is fantastic either way. It only needs a bit of sugar when it’s iced, when it is hot it is fine without sweeteners of any sort. I recommend this for rooibos tea lovers as well as those who love the fruitier teas.

Preparation
145 °F / 62 °C 4 min, 15 sec

drank Holiday Tea by Harney & Sons
18 tasting notes

This tea smells amazing, I just had to try it after a customer had ordered a cup and I got a waft of it. It’s a pleasant and spicy smell and the tea itself matches the smell. Not sure if I plan to try it cold/iced, its just so catered to being a hot tea. Recommended for people who enjoy a spicy, but not too much so, and relaxing cup of tea that you can have all cozied up in a blanket. To me it’s name suits it and it is definitely a fall to winter style tea.

drank Chamomile Citrus by Mighty Leaf Tea
18 tasting notes

I had this at a local restaurant, the Mandarin House of Milford, MA, and I adored it. I’m really picky about chamomile, I often have to sweeten it for it to be tolerable. But this tea was perfect, it has soft but rich flavor. The steep time on the tag is 5 minutes, but even when over-brewed this tea tastes very light and soft. I definitely recommend this to fans of chamomile teas, good ones at that.

Some have commented that it smells like Fruit Loops and I disagree. It smells clean, soft and fresh – the hint of citrus doesn’t overpower the floral, relaxing scent of the chamomile.

drank Hot Cinnamon Spice by Harney & Sons
18 tasting notes

This is very cinnamon-y and spicy, not normally my thing – my mom bought it. It’s actually quitre delicious, especially on a really cold day. Not the best as an iced tea, sadly, but fantastic to blend with other teas for an iced tea. Recommended for fan of cinnamon flavor, period.

drank Kir Royale by Tealuxe

I’m not always a fan of fruity type teas, I find them to to bee too much. But this was a very nice blend. Sweet, light and just the right balancing of its varying flavors. Great iced or hot, though I prefer it iced myself.

Preparation
Iced

drank Kashmiri Chai by Tealuxe

This is probably one of my favorite tea blends right now, especially iced with soy milk or light cream, honey and a touch of sugar. The hint of mint in as a nice, clean and refreshing element.

Preparation
Iced

drank Mint Medley by Bigelow
18 tasting notes

I’m always a bit cautious about Bigelow, but this was pretty good. Minty and refreshing, and yet still light and somewhat smooth. For some? It might be a mint lovers’ dream, ha ha.

My sister has this and I love it, though I may be a little biased as I love mint teas in general. However, its not nearly as good as Ineeka’s Mint tea, I won’t lie.

drank Chamomile by ineeka

Talk about an excellent chamomile tea – smooth, light and relaxing. One of the most wonderful chamomiles I’ve found in awhile, actually. What can I say? I’m a huge fan of Ineeka’s teas right now.
