8 Tasting Notes

Interesting…not for the faint of heart (perhaps for the faint of smell, though) Luckily I’m accustomed to the smell of edible seaweed, but it isn’t my favorite aroma. The taste of this tea is fine, not over-powered by the seaweed. I like the idea that it might have some good antioxidant properties (how much? I don’t know, really, but I’m all up for placebo effect too). Loving the cloth teabag!

This is a beautiful tea…lovely leaves, delicate. I can smell a hint of honey in the cup after drinking it.

Delicious vanilla flavour and aroma. The package recommends steeping 4-5 minutes, but I only let it steep about a minute. The teabags are large and can easily accommodate 2 cups at a time (but no re-steeping). I like to use this for making my own vanilla chai – yummy, yummy! Very good served black or with milk, sugar or no sugar, depending on how you feel. Great for a nice wake up in the morning, or as a cold-day comfort tea.

I really like this tea, actually! It gets bitter with over-steeping, as with any tea, but I quite enjoy the orange flavour and don’t think it tastes artificial. For a teabag, and for one that contains fannings and fruit, I thought it was pretty decent.

I’ve never had any other magnolia-scented teas, so I’m not sure how to rate this one. I like it, but am not enamored with it. Not like jasmine, anyway. I probably won’t buy it often, but it does in a pinch. I’m having some now with a few drops of lemon in it. The lemon doesn’t detract, but actually compliments.

Very, very refreshing! Perfect as a digestif. The flavours mix well, and this tea is like nothing else I’ve tried. Nice for those who don’t mind flavoured tea. Thinking this might make an awesome iced tea too.

I like it – it has more “punch” than a regular mint tisane, and you can still taste and feel the puerh, although the mint is the main fragrance and taste. Lovely mint aroma.

Lovely, doesn’t disappoint. Almost as fragrant as Harney & Sons’ Jasmine Dragon Pearl.
