74 Tasting Notes
Mmmm… I’m brewing up a cup of this deliciousness right now and I can’t wait!
I drank my first cup of this a few days ago now and have been meaning to write up my tasting note but haven’t had a second to myself until just now (and of course, Im celebrating this fact with another cup of Heaven’s Trash) and all I remember is the damp tea leaves tempting me from my brew basket once I had finished that cup with their insanely delicious malty aroma – the scent still haunts me!
Ok, kettle boiled, tea brewed… cup number two on its way…
Oh my – this tea seriously makes me happy :)
Oh Golden Orchid…. I absolutely love it when i get to the bottom of the bag and the top of my tea cup ends up covered in floating black specks of vanilla goodness… BUT… I absolutely hate it when I get to the bottom of the bag as its my last cup until Brendan takes pity on me and makes more :(
This smells insane!! Opening the bag my nose is assaulted with the scent of butterscotch heavily laden with rum! Its the perfect after dinner drink for me as its a rooibos tea so no caffeine and the flavor is sweet enough that this tea acts as my desert! Defiantly going on my repurchase list for when I’m in San Fransisco next!
Ok, so I never actually got to taste Creamy Eggnog so I can’t compare the two but decided since Stacy is shutting up shop in the near future that I should get my hands on some Spiced Nog to try it while I still could! This is pretty darn delicious! You get a real creaminess from the tea and the touch of nutmeg is delicious! I seriously cannot buy anymore teas right now but if I’ve run out by the time Stacy releases her next batch of new teas I think this one may find its way back into my shopping cart.
oh man is this stuff sweet!! And yet some how the nutritional value label on the back of the packet tells me there is only 15 calories per serve… ummm… ok … how big is a serve? 1/4 cup?? Ok, so I just looked it up, apparently the culprit is the monk fruit which is 300 times sweeter than sugar (what the #$@! is a monk fruit?!?!?!?!) Anyhoo this tea is super sweet but still pretty tasty, there is a fair amount of cinnamon however its not overpowering (I don’t like cinnamon all that much) and there is a slight cakey cookie taste. Its not something I would usually gravitate towards but since it tastes so sweet and has no caffeine it might become a after dinner treat, at least until the bag is gone. Now I must go google monk fruit…
If your a pineapple and coconut fan do yourself a favor and get yourself some of this tea quick! The bag is full of shredded coconut, pieces of dried pineapple and black tea, in fact, there seems to be more of the first two ingredients in my bag than the last! A brewed cup screams of mouthwatering pineapple and creamy coconut and is simply delicious with a splash of milk. Hope the rest of my Camillia Sinensis tea haul live up to the high standard that this tea has set!
This is one of three iced tea blends Camellia Sinensis has recently released for summer. A blend of black tea, green tea, guava, rose, bergamot, vanilla and cornflower it is quite delicious on a hot hot summer’s day (which we are still getting in the bucket loads here in Southern California at the end of August). I cold brewed this overnight in the fridge as per the directions on the bag and was pleasantly surprised with the results. The scent is mildly fruity and the taste is delightfully tropical with a hint of guava. Yum!
