59 Tasting Notes
This is good, I enjoy it. But, I think it gave me a headache with the aroma of the cloves. I tend to be a tad bit sensitive to strong scents. It reminds me of an amped up version of glitter and gold. I get where they’re coming from in terms of the whole “Spice cake” thing they were trying to go for but straight it doesn’t work that way. I added a little brown sugar and a little extra vanilla extract and I think it helps since I like the rich yet subtly sweet teas. Not sure if I’d repurchase after I finish up my 15 gram bag, I haven’t quite formed a static opinion of it yet. But I think I like glitter and gold better, it’s just the right amount of spiceyness.
Mapley and super syrupy sweet. Which is great!, because the only reason you would buy this tea is for that flavour. I loveeeeeeeeeee this. I didn’t think I would because I don’t like rooibos. 2 reasons: it never stays inside my tea ball, and there’s that stigma I have about it that’s like ehhhhh, I prefer my greens and my oolongs. But I’m coming along to liking rooibos maybe just because of this. It’s got me singing my national anthem over and over again.
I don’t like pu’erh all that much and it takes a good tea that will mask the taste of it in order to allow me to drink it and enjoy it. This does that very well. I love the skinny, makes me feel better after having too much of a big meal. As well, it tastes so citrusy (I know not a word) that I really do enjoy every sip of this.
I don’t like mulberry magic, and I was hesitant in buying this but I didn’t want to be closed-minded so I got 15 grams. Which btw turned out to give me a lot damn more than I thought. This foil bag is almost full honestly.
At first impression, I think I like this over mulberry magic. Definitely something I find more nutty and creamy than M.M.
Definitely get the pistachio in this. In M.M I couldn’t taste the macadamia nuts and I love the fact that at least this delivers what it’s described to taste like.
At first, I liked M.M and then started to slowly hate it and I hope that won’t happen with this tea because my 15 g bag of M.M is still sitting in my little corner and I’m going to try to finish it up. Now P.C seems like something I will want to drink once in while and I won’t have too much trouble finishing up this sample.
Not sure if this is a rebuy but i had no trouble finishing my cup by the time I finished writing this.
I really enjoy this tea right now. I’m so sick and I believe ginseng is supposed to be good for your throat so here I am. This tea tastes buttery in a good way. I drink it with a teeny bit of brown sugar because the ginseng can taste a little awkward for my palette. I don’t like the aftertaste. I have to sip it again in order to get rid of it. tastes like those sweet n low packets aftertaste my dad used to use when we’d go for breakfast. Not perfect but still a good tea
I didn’t think this would taste coffeeish more than fruity, but it does. Tastes like a lighter version of coffee puerh.
I put it in to steep for a little longer just to see if more of the fruitiness will come out. After doing so, I can kinda taste the tartness of the hibiscus. But to me it’s just a lighter version of coffee puerh. Which I don’t mind, it’s just not as amazing as it should be with this amount of ingredients
This tea was actually the completion to my biggest fear mission ever. Let me explain, the way I first got into drinking tea was drinking china green tips by tazo that my mother brought home one day. After buying it over and over again I thought that personally it was way too expensive and I was spending way too much on it. After doing some research I saw that I could lower my cost with buying it loose leaf. I tried going through many a type of green tea as I couldn’t find the exact taste I was going for since googling the type it was wasn’t so successful and I was still new to the team game so I had a lot of trial and error times but finally I found this. This is label led as a Mao jian, but now knowing that tazo is a Mao feng? I’m still quite confused as if Mao feng and Mao jian is the same thing. Because buying the teavana Mao feng they are the exact same just this is at a much lower price point. If anyone can explain that I’d be so thankful. Anyways, without all this I wouldn’t have come to love all my new acquired tea loves. This tea is nutty, not too vegetal which I like and has rich notes that make me go ahhhhh. love love love it. It will always have a special place in my heart
It’s a good rich black tea. But that’s all it is. I don’t get any notes of coconut, toffee, maybe I get a weeeeeee bit of caramel since it does taste rich and sweet. That’s not to say it’s not a good tea or one that I won’t repurchase because most likely I’ll pick up a 15 g bag once in a while when I feel it or finish the 15 g I have. But it’s just a sweet black tea to me.
