402 Tasting Notes
I am not a fan of chamomile so imagine my delight in finding one that I love! :D The most remembered chamomile for me was Sleepytime from Celestial Seasonings. :( Blah! This tea is lovely to look at and the dry scent is very fruity not the rather bland chamomile of my misspent youth.
This tea is awesome. There is a lovely apple/orange/grapefruit and rose aroma. The white tea is gentle and yet flavorful. I mostly taste the apple and some grapefruit. If you had told me that they would be good together I would have thought you were nuts. But… these blend so well together. Nom nom! The very pretty tin says it has hibiscus but I don’t sense it.
This is part of the Chicago tea set: Magnificent ChamoMile, Chai Town and Chicago Jazzmint. The tins are large and very attractive. It’s a great set. There is a total of 9.2 oz in the set. I think it was $27. Not a bad price.
Flavors: Apple, Grapefruit, Orange Zest
I made my Chocolate Rocket on the stove today. I simmered 3 tsp of tea in 12 oz of unsweetened vanilla almond milk for about 20 minutes. I sweetened it with some stevia. The unsweetened vanilla almond milk only has 30 calories per cup…so about 45 cal for 12 oz. This is the best substitute for hot chocolate ever. The raspberry of the CR is just lovely when combined with the creamy chocolate.
Mmmm… Just what I needed this afternoon. I have been a bit heavy handed in my leaf measurement lately but luckily was a bit more careful and it really payed off. (I’m not sure why I was overleafing ) Lovely chocolate flavor with a nice nuttiness. I added a bit of stevia but no milk and it is lovely!
Have a wonderful New Year!
Thank you NayLynn for the sample!
Flavors: Chocolate, Nuts, Vanilla
Well, I am much chagrined! I feel I was very unfair in my previous tasting note on this tea. This time I went a little lighter on the amount of leaf I used and it is much better. It still doesn’t have a particularly strong pumpkin flavor but it is very enjoyable. Luckily have have enough for several more pots. The rooibos is a bit lighter without the woodsiness getting overwhelming.
Note to self: Even though it said 1-2 tsp on the directions, stick to 1 tsp. :)
This tea saved my day. Thanks NayLynn and Brandon! I swear I tried 5 different tea samples today and nothing hit the spot at all. I think some of the samples have gotten old and they just were off. I then decided I had to have a “happy” tea, something to make me smile. And this was perfect. :)
Today at Weight Watchers the scale showed me up a pound :( so I have to really push myself to have my lovely dessert teas instead of all the seasonal treats. It’s so hard….. I know a pound isn’t much but I don’t want to let it start going up after finally reaching my goal. I lost more than forty pounds and cookies are not going to tell me what to do!!!
From the Santa Claus TTB. Thanks Veronica for the generous portion of this tea!
I’m not sure how much pumpkin I taste but the lack of that doesn’t interfere with a lovely touch pumpkin spice and the creaminess. Yummy! The rooibos doesn’t have too much of the often woodsy flavor that can sneak in and interfere with the tea.
This is a very nice tea and just what I needed this afternoon (another gloomy Dec. day… I think it is about 14 days in a row).
Gentle apple flavor and aroma. I can’t really taste the caramel. Cinnamon is very mild which I appreciate since I seem to be having trouble with cinnamon coming on too strong. Not one I’d buy but not one to toss out. I have enough for several more cups which is nice.
There were no brewing instructions on the Teasy site.
Thanks FlyAwayBirdie for a chance to try this. This is a very nice dessert tea with a lovely floral vanilla flavor. Very relaxing especially when you’re needing de-caf. Don’t let it cool off too much because the rooibos starts getting a bit medicinal/woodsy tasting overwhelming the vanilla and floral flavoring.
