18 Tasting Notes
I didn’t get much flavor out of this. The tea leaves smell nice and the tea itself is soothing and wonderful. However, I couldn’t really taste the apricot too much but that wasn’t an issue because the oolong itself is very nice. Smooth on the tongue, very bold in a roasted sort of way. Enjoyable. Disclaimer: I might not have gotten much flavor because I have the sniffles. Still pleasurable to drink.
This tea is ok. I wasn’t expecting much seeing as it’s a bagged tea and I’ve been disappointed many times with bagged teas, but this one surprised me. It actually had a decent amount of flavor and I actually enjoyed it and I don’t generally like rooibos. No, it doesn’t taste much like chocolate and yes, the peppermint is very much an aftertaste. But, the tea itself was decently enjoyable.
After tasting this tea a second time, I still don’t like it. The tea itself is pretty weak and the berry flavoring just seemed disappointing to me. Tho I do see how this easily could be a matter of personal preference. I gave the rest to my brother who has seemed to have better luck using it as iced tea.
This time, unlike last time, I used a lot more tea and it definitely improved it. However, it still tasted like nice black tea with a slightly sweet peppermint aftertaste. At the same time, I’m ok with this. At least I can drink it now and not be so disappointed. Just don’t expect an actual candy cane flavor.
I wasn’t impressed by this tea. I picked it up in a rush just because I wanted to try something new and the Rishi chai tea I had tried blew me away so I figured this should be good too. And it is good, but it simply isn’t for me. I really don’t know what I was expecting as I’m not really into berry flavored anything but I expected more out of this. If you truly enjoy berry tea that, well, actually tastes like berries, then this is for you. But me? I needed to add milk and sugar to get it to taste better.
