14 Tasting Notes

drank Mint Julep by Tea of Life
14 tasting notes

I made this tea quite strong since that was what I was in the mood for today and surprisingly, the mint flavor stood up well and wasn’t overpowered by the black tea.

Just made this to help with my cough and icky throat. I like to revisit teas I’m not a huge fan of when I am sick because it’s a way to use them up and still have a warm beverage. I steeped this extra long and with not quite boiling water and actually liked it much more than I have previously. It’s still not worth a thumbs up though. I wish there were a ‘mediocre’ button to use. . .

Made this tea to help my scratchy throat and wake me up a bit this morning. Feeling under the weather, so I’ll add more sugar than usual. I enjoy this tea but can never taste as much ginger as I expect to from it.

I made a big batch of this to take to work today. After infusing the tea, I poured the warm mixture over fresh cut lemons and sugar and then put it in the fridge to cool, essentially make a tea-lemonade mix. I really enjoy this tea warm, but I believe the verbena and lemon will be even more refreshing cold.

This is a warming, comforting blend of cinnamon and orange in a rich black tea. The scent of this tea just shouts winter to me and is the perfect accompaniment to a book, a chair and a fireplace in a cozy corner. For an extra touch of warmth and to balance the spice I would add milk and sugar.

This is my favorite green tea blend. The pomegranate and hibiscus turn this tea a gorgeous shade of deep purple. I usually enjoy this warm but the tanginess of the fruits create a great iced tea as well.

This is a great every day cup of tea. The vanilla lends a natural sweetness to the tea and the almonds impart a nuttiness which balances the sweetness beautifully. Most of the time I enjoy this as is, but when I need another level of warmth I’ll add a splash of milk for creaminess. The packaging suggests adding steamed milk for a tea latte and if I had a way to steam milk I’d try it.

The scent of cinnamon and vanilla led me to initially try this tea but the underlying notes of anise seed seems a little too overpowering for me. I’ve only tried this tea once or twice and haven’t liked it enough for it to come to mind immediately when I am trying to decide what to brew. Perhaps, in time, this will become another tea which will grow on me.

This tea has a strong, pungent aroma and flavor. On my first three or four tastings I only drank it because I didn’t want the money I spent on it to go to waste. With ingredients like anise, licorice, spearmint and rosemary you’ve got to prepare yourself for a complex and savory tea experience. The addition of honey or sugar and milk helps make the tea more palatable for first tastings. Now it is one of my favorites and I am toying around with the idea of using a strong brew of the tea as a marinade for chicken.

This is a tea blend from a local Minnesotan brand, Mrs. Kelly’s Teas. The mango flavor is full and fruity but doesn’t overpower the delicate green tea. I like it with a little honey or raw sugar to draw out the mango flavor a bit more.
