156 Tasting Notes
Finally I was able to try the golden fleece!
Very fragrant and earthy. Tastes of sweet potato with a bit of pepper and creamy nutmeg, the faintest hint of dark mushroom, and lots of honey. Somehow this is still clean and sparking, and lasts throughout many steepings. Becomes sweeter with honey notes as the cup cools.
Very delicious and a pleasure to drink! I think I need more of this beautiful tea!
This is an outstanding blend that tastes like vanilla gingerbread/spice cake with creamy orange citrus frosting. So good!!
I re-steeped this many times and the ginger becomes more prominent and flavorful – like a most delicious herbal tisane.
Brewed about 1 tbsp for 5 or 6 minutes initially (Sil parameters), with re-steeps longer.
I love this blend; for me it is absolutely delicious!!
When I made this it instantly reminded me of bubblegum – the kind that comes in those round balls. First the way it smelled, and then the taste…bubblegum. The spearmint in this is quite sweet which is probably enhanced by the vanilla and other spices, and I didn’t taste cinnamon so much but there was something else..possibly clove.
Not something I’d have again but glad to have tried it.
Drinking a delicious cup (or two) of this before I go to work on this snowy day.
Malty, toasty goodness and so satisfying – perfect for today.
I gave my husband a sip of the cup to try – he said it was good and that it reminded him of "that japanese tea with the roasted barley in it". hehe.. Good description about the barley I thought!
Brewed up the last of my tin. Delicious nutty cocoa flavoured tea – best brewed with extra leaf.
I enjoyed drinking this and would possibly repurchase sometime, although I think I do prefer the Soho blend for a H&S chocolate tea as I love the coconut in that one – Florence has a darker, more subdued chocolate taste, which is still very nice.
This was free with a recent purchase when at the store. Since I couldn’t think of anything else I wanted to try and my spouse had sniffed this in the display by the cash register and pronounced it “good”, decided just to try this since it was free and I hadn’t had it before.
It smells quite nice and chocolatey but the flavor doesn’t quite seem to match. There is some chocolate and some heat from the peppers, but somehow there is something lacking. It is very similar to read my lips but the mint in that one seems to give it that little something extra that this doesn’t have. It is an OK tea but not my favorite. Better with cream or milk and when cools a bit.
Probably would be a good base for hot chocolate!
