300 Tasting Notes

Thank you RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas for including this tea in the mystery box I received from you. The scent of the dry leaves is minty with a bit of chocolate. The taste is balanced and not overwhelmed by the rooibos.

I like my chocolate teas to be a bit more chocolate than this so I added some chocolate stevia. The flavor really blossomed. There are other ingredients mentioned but I’m not sure I taste them.

My tummy was feeling a little wonky so I thought a bit of mint was in order. It worked. I’ll be able to drink it all evening since its a rooibos.

Flavors: Chocolate, Peppermint

I’m always a bit concerned when a tea says one tablespoon per 8 0z since that rarely seems to be the case,. In a compromise I put in 1.5 tsp for 8 oz.

The dry leaf has an almost orange scent but I don’t really taste it when brewed.

The chai element is a bit weak so maybe it should have been a whole tablespoon. It is good and I will gladly drink it. It makes a nice evening drink with it being a rooibos. The spices make it an interesting drink.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Ginger

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

I’ve had this tea in the cupboard for awhile only because I’ve gotten so many new teas that this was sort of pushed to the back.I enjoy this tea but as other say it’s not particularly memorable. I will drink what I have of it but won’t miss it when it’s gone because there are lots of similar teas out there. This is a good cuppa but I can see why it got pushed to the back of the cupboard. Nothing new or special.

Another tea from a vacation. They only had 12 oz. packages or tea bags. I choose the 12 oz. package. YIKES! That’s a lot of tea! Luckily, I like the tea! It’s very green and fresh! There’s no overly vegetal smell or taste. I’ve tried it with several different flavorings and sweeteners and have enjoyed them all. (Vanilla cream Stevia, Chocolate Stevia, Maple syrup, Strawberry Chocolate Stevia) I really enjoy mates and their caffeine which makes this a tea I’ll keep in my cupboard for a long time. Re-steeps well.

Flavors: Green

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

LOL! No kidding! I will be using it for a lot of swaps as well as having plenty for the next year or so… Did you want any? I think I owe you some from your last very generous swap. I don’t need anything in return. :)

NayLynn

Nope, you will never owe me. I don’t think I could ever catch up with what I owe you,you’ve reached Grandma status with my son. I think I can wait, Thank you :)

It’s an unseasonably cold day in mid September, the football game is on, the husband is watching and I’m reading a good book.

The tea is such a lovely smoky and bacon scent dry. The flavor and aroma follow through with their promise of something special. I am new to Lapsang Souchong so I can’t compare this to others of the same name. I can just tell you that this is so delightful and relaxing. Very evocative of campfires, fall leaves and bacon ( Bacon?). I have the feeling that this wouldn’t be nearly as good at some other times of the year but for the here and now, it’s perfect. It says it can be resteeped 2-3 times. Oh, what a nice thing to keep drinking all afternoon!

Adding more to my note about 4 hours later:

After drinking several cups of this tea I swear I could still taste and smell this tea even when I was out walking. It is so relaxing!

Flavors: Smoke

It’s also really nice if you add a little maple syrup once in awhile :)

I was a bit put off by the name… I mean, really , would I really want a fruity cereal flavored tea? As i found I … I like it quite a bit. The fruit isn’t as crazy as it sounds and the black tea wasn’t bad. No bitterness. I like fruity teas and the sweetness that implies so this tea works. Not every day, but one I could keep in stock. (If I had more this this sample) Not bad :)

I’m giving it another try. I leafed it a bit more than last time ( I actually remembered to read the note I wrote on the bag that said I should leaf more) and felt there was more flavor than last time. I am upping my rating somewhat.

Flavors: Chocolate, Raspberry

This may have been sitting around for awhile. I’m not getting enough coffee to be excited about. I mean COFFEE Chai should have a good bump of coffee in it. I enjoy cardamom but it seems like there is an awful lot of cardamom pods in it.

Flavors: Cardamon, Spices

Bio

Retired first grade teacher. I tend to like dessert type/herbal teas as a substitute for sweet treats. Flavored black teas and mates to get that energy that I am often lacking :-p
My husband of 42 years thinks I’m nuts regarding the whole tea thing… but he bought me a Breville for Christmas, so what can I say.
My other interests are reading (books go well with tea :D) and beading.

I have been watching Doctor Who for 32 years. It’s almost new DW time!!!! In case you can’t tell my avatar is two daleks drinking tea! I am always open to swapping Doctor Who books for tea. I have about 120 Doctor Who books that I am eager to send them to a fan. :D Let me know if you would like any books! I love that so many people have begun watching DW!

Also I love swaps, pm me if you’d like to do a swap.

Since I find others’ rating legends helpful, I added my own.

95-100 A once in a lifetime experience; the best there is; will keep this stocked until the cows come home

90-94 First rate; top notch; really terrific; will definitely buy more

80-89 Excellent; likely to become a favorite, will likely buy more

70-79 Very good; would enjoy again, might buy again if in the mood for this particular one or a better, similar version not available or it’s on a really good sale :-)

50-69 Good; wouldn’t pass up if offered, but probably wouldn’t buy again unless craving this particular flavor

Below 50 Meh! Wouldn’t bother drinking it again.
