299 Tasting Notes
I have received a lovely and generous sample from Hapatite. Thank-you!
I have been lucky enough to have two samples which I have enjoyed very much. I really do have to get some of this for myself.
The pale color always surprises me because I have that ‘chocolate’ word in there. They got the chocolate taste and the banana well blended. I don’t taste half the flavors they mention… apple pieces, pineapple?? Doesn’t matter! The flavors blend well to give me a satisfying dessert tea substituting for real desserts.
Thank-you Hapatite for this lovely sample from Handmade Teas. I haven’t had a yerba mate with mint before and I really like it. I don’t taste any berry flavor but that’s okay. I think this would also be a nice cold brew… nice wake up quality and yummy fresh mint. It’s too bad that it’s not readily available.
I have to thank the lovely and generous Hepatite for this tea.
I wasn’t sure about having an autumn tea in the spring but it works well. It reminds me of some chai teas. The spices are well balanced with out any overpowering flavors. I like cinnamon, ginger, cloves and allspice :-) so I’m a happy girl! The black tea adds a bit of body. I’ve had several similar teas made with rooibos lately but they just don’t have enough body to make it. I have enough for a couple more cups, so yeah!
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves
I’ve continued to drink this fairly frequently, when I’ve over-eaten or just feel blah. I use a little vanilla stevia. Awesome! Today I made 5 cups in my Breville and drank one hot. The rest I put in the refrigerator to chill. Made a great iced tea. I could drink this a lot this summer! Finally our weather has gotten spring/summer like and it is very nice. What a terrible winter we had!
Nice tea but not as exciting to me as some people reviewed it. I like Birthday Cake and a few others a lot more. My taste buds may have been taking a break, but they did’t notice as much maple as I had hoped. Yummy, but not something I would buy. I’m going to rate it a little higher because I think it’s my taste buds that are out of whack.
I haven’t had many fennel teas but if this is an example, well, yeah, I’m in! I like the fennel, spice and peppercorns. Can’t really taste any apple but with the others tastes in there it makes sense. I guess I just wouldn’t expect to taste apple hidden in fennel, spice and peppercorns. This is a boldly flavored tea that has “good for you” fennel. Hey, I just read that may help in weight loss and flushes out toxins. Good news! It’s a great tea hot, I wonder what it will be like cold?
Flavors: Licorice, Peppercorn
Eeck! The computer ate my tasting note!! Well if it ever re-appears from the magic realm where the computer puts things, you’ll see a really great note. In the meantime, you’ll have to put up with this half-assed note.
Not like the cereal!
Good fruity taste!
Buy again and keep in stock!
Thanks TTTTB for this lovely sample. I love nut teas and was really, really, really hoping that I’d find a good nut taste. Well….. not so much. A bit of cinnamon, not much else. Not bad but I won’t purchase any. I’m really glad I got to try this! I am pretty sure I would have bought some based on the name.
Thanks for sharing this tea with me, 221Tea! A couple days ago every tea was blah. Today I’m doing really well with my choices. This tea has a nice butterscotch/candy taste. The white tea seems to be a very good base. It doesn’t overwhelm the butterscotch which is very good, since that was the flavor I was looking forward to. I’m not sure I sense much of a creamy taste. Its good and I am having a nice break from cleaning windows on a sunny, fresh day!
I received this sample in the TTTTB! I love nuts but I haven’t had a lot of nut teas so I decided to give this a try. Nice nutty flavor. Good for when I need a caffeine free tea. When I drank it cold, it seemed a little sour almost like there was some hibiscus in there. I’m probably just imagining it. I preferred it hot.
