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
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.
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!
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 :)
