5 Tasting Notes
A pretty good tea. The cloves are what you’ll smell, and taste the most of. While it was a nice tea I wouldn’t put it as my favorite either. Use hot water with this tea to really bring out all of the various spices.
There is a warm version of this now you can buy at Barnes and Nobles. I love the smell, but the taste is a little bitter for me. By the end of the cup it was so bitter I had to toss it. Far better was the Tropical Green Tea. Skip this one and go for the Green.
This was my first cup of tea ever. My mother keeps a package of this in the cupboard, and her cup always smelled so good that I finally had to try it. This was the start of my love for tea. It still has a place in my cupboard since every time I drink a cup I think of my mom. As for the taste, it is almost sweet and I like it better than a pure peppermint mix. It is just bright, and complex.
My first cup was recommended to me by the barista at Barnes and Nobles. The smell is pineapple, with a hint of mango I think. You know you have a good tea when the girls behind the counter are excited to make a cup just so they can smell it!
A very subtle tea, and a nice change from my usual choices. The orange blossom is what really makes this tea sing. I love the gentle waft of orange in my nose and over my tongue, but this will never be a tea that overwhelms you with taste. If you are looking for a strong, bold tea, this is not that tea!
