It was 63 degrees and rainy today… i.e. almost fall weather… i.e. time to pull out this awesome tea. It is seriously the perfect rainy day tea. It just warms you from the inside out. Yum! It was delicious as always.
392 Tasting Notes
I haven’t had this tea in forever! I found it in my cabinet this morning and I thought it would be perfect for breakfast this morning. It has a nice subtly apple flavor. Not to strong or fake. Yum :)
I have had this tea before but I liked it a little better this time. I remember it being a little more sour. This cup seemed a little smoother and sweeter. There was still that sour note that is present in most fruit teas, but overall I enjoyed the cup. Not something I would purchase for myself, but I liked the sample.
Another free sample. Apparently I have had it before, but I don’t remember. It is okay. I am not sure that I am a huge fan of lemongrass. There is something about it that tastes off to me. Almost grain like in flavor. It was a decent afternoon cup of tea though.
Free sample time! I got my sample of this tea over the weekend and decided that this morning was the time to try it.
First off the smell is really accurate. When I first smelled the dry tea, I actually felt like I was eating a kiwi! Once steeped it smells more of the same.
Personally I think it tastes way less like kiwi than it smells. It tastes more like green apple to me. I think it tastes perfectly like a green apple jolly ranchers. I think that this would fulfill any candy craving.
I don’t know that I would want to buy more of this tea because it was a little sweet for my taste, but it was definitely a fun to try!
Had this as an afternoon cup of tea. I love all the fruitiness of this tea. It is so refreshing and summery.
Had some of this with French Toast this morning. The smoky boldness went well with the sweetness of the food. I am almost out of this tea sadly. I will have to find some more Lapsang Souchong.
Made a cup of this for my boyfriend this afternoon. It is his favorite tea. I love that he likes some of my teas now. Yay for tea converts.
Having a cup of this tea for breakfast today. Unfortunately I think it may be my last cup. I went through this tea pretty quickly. It is a very nice strong breakfast tea. It holds up well with most breakfast foods.
I made a pot of this tea iced over the weekend. It is the perfect summer tea. Fruity and bold and delicious!
I had this tea with breakfast this morning. I wanted to have something more interesting, but I apparently forgot to wash out my tea strainer last night. Oh well. This was a good substitute. It is a pretty solid black tea.
Had this for my breakfast tea. I love the lime flavor and the complex background flavor which is the cheesecake flavor. I really enjoy this when I want something interesting!
Had a delicious cup of this tea this morning. It is really a great way to wake yourself up in the morning. Although I think it is a better fall/winter tea because the spices are a little intense for a boiling August morning.
I wonder if the flavors would translate well into an iced tea – has anyone tried it?
Yum. I really like this iced tea. I love that it is unsweetened and comes in such a large quantity. I can usually only ever find pre-made unsweetened iced tea in a small (and expensive bottle). It has a nice hint of lemon and mint. Very refreshing flavor.
I haven’t been on steepster in forever! I have 96 notices – whoops. However I would like to get back into read and reviewing on steepster.
Anyway I found a whole box of tea in my closet at home the other day. I must have forgotten to move it last summer, but it was certainly an exciting find. This was one of teas in the box. It is a nice plan black tea for when you want something quick. Nothing spectacular, but a solid tea.
I haven’t made a tasting note in forever!!! I just realized this and how much I miss steepster! I plan on getting back into doing a bunch of tasting notes this summer! Regardless I had this delicious cup of tea this morning with breakfast. It was awesome as always. Fruity, tropical, green, buttery – yum yum yum!!!! Also on a random side note the coconut has now been died green from the green tea – haha.
I had a strawberry green tea sample from Lupicia yesterday and I was hunting for more strawberry tea this morning. The Lupicia tea was really yummy and I unfortunately forgot what it is called and misplace my newsletter. Hence no tasting note on that tea. However this tea was a lovely follow up. I love the bold flavor in this tea. It is so wonderful.
This tea + vanilla almond milk = heaven!
It was the perfect post final cup of tea (which by the way I am done with now – yay!). Very yummy!
Had a cup of this yesterday with breakfast. I was craving a nice strong, dark black tea and this really hit the spot!!
Had a lovely cup of this today! I love its pancake flavor and smell! It just makes me happy :) Great Saturday tea!
Had a cup of this tea this afternoon with some crackers and cheese. It was a wonderful pairing. I don’t drink this tea that often but sometimes the bold smokiness really calls me. Today was one of those days and it was a spectacular cup of tea.
Easter morning breakfast tea! It looks colorful like spring!
I could have sworn I logged this before. Regardless this is a nice fruity tea. It isn’t as good a thepuriteas passion fruit tea, but it is still quite yummy. I love having it iced. I am really looking forward to drinking tons of iced tea again soon.
I really liked this tea. It is certainly very unique and fun. I love trying new products like this. It tastes like nothing I have ever had before. Although it does have distinctive chai and coffee tastes. It is lightly sweet, lightly spicy, and has a light coffee taste (without the bitterness), but that is not to say that it is light on flavor. If you get a chance to try this product out, I definitely would. Especially if you like coffee but aren’t really crazy about the bitterness.
I have a longer review with photos here: http://apurpledress.wordpress.com/2011/04/22/white-coffee-infusion/
Caramel? Apples? Honeybush? What’s not to like? This tea has an awesome caramel apple flavor and the honeybush is a nice base. I really like this tea. Hopefully I can save a little for actual autumn.
