59 Tasting Notes
Very disappointing and upsetting cup because this is the tea I was the most excited for in the winter collection this year. I hate it. My first sip was licorice, with undertones in licorice and more licorice. It’s smooth which most likely comes from the chocolate, but there is no real taste of chocolate. No real taste of oolong. Just sadness as I take another sip and hope it doesn’t taste the same as the last :( (Okay, so I got a little emotional there, but still I wanted to love this tea so bad!)
I liked this tea the first time I tasted it in store, and then coming home and brewing a cup for about 2 or 3 times I came to the conclusion I just hated it and it was an impulse buy. And now I am sipping on a cup to get rid of it and I like it again? I don’t know what’s going on over here but at least I’m happy I can finish these last few cups enjoyably. Maybe one day when I’m craving it again I will repurchase. Holding off on the rating because obviously I can’t make my decision on it.
This tastes like a fruity crumbly, pieish tart. (I know, but if you try the tea you’ll know what I’m talking about. This is what I hoped mom’s apple pie would taste like in terms of a pastry note. Moms apple pie was too much apple not enough pie? This is like the right amount of fruit and pastry. Even though there isn’t anything in here that would lead u to believe that it would taste this way. I’m drinking it with a little milk and brown sugar just to help with tartness since I usually hate that in my tea. This goes great with some trail mix for a snack. Love love love
I get apple, not cinnamon apple, just apple. So, I added some cinnamon. Still apple, that’s it. There’s now a slight warmth to it from the cinnamon I just added but it’s not at all that comforting having a slice of pie taste I thought I would. it’s a good tea for what it is, but not what I bought it for so no repurchase for me.
as a loose leaf tea drinker, I tend to be a snob as to what banged tea I’ll drink but I really like this. I’m not tasting too much rooibos which makes me sad certain times and others I kinda like. roobios is one of those teas I have to be in the mood to have and if I’m not in the mood to taste roobios and in the mood for a pumpkin treat this is it. For a th tea I like it a lot and I bought a few boxes to last me til next year. I can definitely tell there is black pepper but it’s not too bad. It’s a good in a rush tea.
I am going to be weird and say I love this tea with milk and sugar. Okay, I know I’ve been banned from the steepster world, but before I am let me have this one last tasting note :) I didn’t like it straight, or with just some sugar it just tasted burnt to me. (I swear I didn’t oversteep the tea, I only steep for 3 minutes at most even though the directions say more) And adding milk I don’t know it just went down so nice ahhhhhh….this will definitely be a miss since this is my last cup. But I will rebuy this sometime this month.
I haven’t had this tea in a while. Great tea, different tea, but great tea. Not something I thought a tea would ever taste like. It still doesn’t disappoint me as I taste a richly sweet, yet not overpowering honey taste and smell. Actually this tea is what I want real honey to smell like. I like the taste of honey but hate the smell. Being honest I know bee spit is how it’s made I get it but the smell of spit is BLEHH…but onto the tea. LOVE LOVE LOVE <3
