16 Tasting Notes

Yumm. My allergies have been next to death lately so many days I wake up with a sore throat and I always have a cup of tea. This was my choice today. I like it because I can actually taste the tea, even though it’s a chocolaty tea (which I’ve been loving lately) but its a very tasty treat. I haven tried it with milk or creamer but I’m sure it will still be delicious

Sooooooo delicious. Lovely mint aftertaste. Great with steamed milk (I’m lazy and just used it straight out of the jug).

I made this about 3 minutes before I had to run out the door so I didnt get a chance to try it until I was at work. To be honest I wasnt expecting much from it since I read quite a few terrible reviews. I ordered 8 ounces since it was so cheap and figured if I hated it I could just give it to someone who did like it. That will not be happening. I really like this tea a lot. Its a little tart but still earthy flavored and its definitely a nice change. I’ll be trying this iced once this terribly cold weather breaks.

I’m currently drinking the homemade version of this, seeing as I refuse to spend 26 dollars on 5 dollars worth of ingredients. Four ingredients to be exact. I keep sipping on this and it is a bizarre experience, possibly because this is the first tea with a high content of mint that I’ve tried. Its kind of herb-y when its in the mouth, but once you swallow then the sweetness really kicks it and your mouth gets a cooling sensation. Mmmmmm, so glad I ran into the recipe for this. Its yummy and very calming and soothing. Maybe I should add some chamomile or lavender and see what that turns out like. But for now this is delicious.

I love this tea. I purchased it on sale and thought what the heck, I’ll give it a try. So glad I did. I’ll probably order a few more pouches before the sale is over though. For me its a good balance of everything I love in a tea. I bit of fruitiness, a little refreshing mint, and of course an actual tea flavor. Next stop it to try it with the sweet fruit garden which I’ve heard is awesome

Ordered this on a whim because I had in my mind that perfect evening of quiet bliss, just enjoying my perfect cup of tea. I will admit that the scent of the tea made me a little wary about actually drinking it because it is a very fragrant tea and is not fruity like many that I like. Anyhow, after two days of calling off work sick I decided to make this tea to lull me to sleep. I have to say I like it much more than I thought I would. The strong lavender scent is mostly dissipated after steeping but can still be tasted. Its a light tasting tea but also tastes strong at the same time (I’m thinking a second steep will prove to be better for me). I can’t say that it is making me sleepy (could be the medicine) but I’ll try it again once I’m better and comment on that.

Overall it is a nice tea, but not something I would drink all day or even on a daily basis. More one of those “me time” teas.

Hi! I’m Bethany and I’ve recently become obsessed with tea. I’ve always liked tea, but this new (at least to me) world of loose leaf tea has changed my thoughts on tea entirely. Since I’m kinda new to it I am always up for suggestions, especially places to order from since the only thing I have near me is Teavana.
