149 Tasting Notes
This tea is really starting to grow on me. I’ve decided to just forget about the fact that it is supposed to taste like tiramisu (because I don’t think it does). I’m just enjoying it for what it is – a complex nutty, caramelly, creamy, slightly fruity blend. I’m not tasting the red pepper in it anymore either (which is a good thing). It resteeps fairly well also. I always prepare this with almond milk and stevia.
This is a good basic chocolate Yerba Mate. It is actually pretty chocolatey, but I’m not getting the malt flavor. I would have no problem drinking this on a regular basis. As good as this is, I still slightly prefer Teavana’s Yerba Mate blends. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
The buttery taste in this tea is amazing! It really does taste like cookies. Unfortunately, I am getting some bitterness from it (but not enough to make me dislike the tea). I’ve just finished my first cup of this and I’m already craving a second. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
I’m not getting the Heath flavor from this tea. There is maybe the faintest hint of chocolate and toffee, but it is very faint. It pretty much tastes like an unflavored black tea to me. It’s okay, but I’m glad I got it in a swap rather than buying it. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
This is one of the better flavored rooibos teas I’ve found. It’s simple, but tasty. The vanilla and almond flavors are just right and very natural tasting. I’m very glad I finally decided to purchase this one. Prepared with stevia.
I have two of these and just got one for my mom. Needless to say, I love them. Apparently they have just changed over to a non-removable metal strainer rather than the removable plastic one. I prefer the new style with the metal strainer. It’s no longer microwaveable, but no more problems with the strainer coming loose or floating up.
This tea is full bodied, has good raspberry flavor, and a smoky finish. The smokiness really surprised me, but it actually goes with the raspberry and makes the tea more interesting. Prepared with milk and stevia.
I was very pleasantly surprised by this tea. I normally don’t like Earl Greys (partially because they smell like the natural soaps I use). So with the addition of lavender, this tea smelled even more like soap to me. But, this is actually a nice mild Earl Grey. The bergamot is not overdone and the lavender just kind of smooths everything out. This is probably the only Earl Grey that I might actually consider buying (got this one from Mel, thanks again!). Prepared with stevia.
This is a very interesting tea. It’s a sweet dessert tea, but the flavor is grounded by something in it that is almost savory tasting. There are hints of coffee, cream, caramel and toffee. The mouthfeel is creamy and there is a prominent cheesecake aftertaste. I just wish the chamomile hadn’t been included in the mix, as I think it probably brings down the flavor of the tea a bit. A very nice, unique tea. Prepared with stevia.
This is pretty decent for a bagged yerba mate. The flavor is fairly thick, chocolaty and rich (just don’t expect it to be hot chocolate). I can’t taste the mate. I steeped in 5oz of water for a little over 12 minutes, then added about 1oz of almond milk and some stevia.
