Recent Tasting Notes
I had a free tea coupon, so I tried this iced.
I’m not sure how much I would enjoy it hot, but it was very pleasant iced. The predominant flavour was tart cherry, vegetal white tea (Bai mu dan maybe?) it was definitely suggestive of green tea, and overall fruitiness. Having it iced meant that the vegetal and tart aspects were very much subdued, so I really liked the overall flavour.
Flavors: Cherry, Fruity, Tart
This tea was meh. Just meh. I wasn’t overly impressed with it at all and don’t understand the hype. I tried it because of unrelenting recommendations from friends. I’ve tried it hot, hot with agave, and as a hot latte and still am not much of a fan. It’s too much sweetness without any real flavour for my taste. I won’t be repurchasing this and am glad the 50 g bag I got is now gone as it took me months to finish it.
Flavors: Sugar, Sweet
I didn’t get much spice or hotness from this at all! It had a rather muddied flavor, a bit bitter and a tiny bit of chai spice. There was a tiny tingle but I probably wouldn’t have even noticed it had I not been expecting it.It was drinkable but I had no desire at all to ever have it again. I was pretty disappointed after all the great reviews!
Flavors: Bitter, Pepper, Spices
Quite honestly I am a bit underwhelmed by this tea. After reading the reviews I was expecting a creamy, rich treat. What I actually got was a pretty blah cup of rooibos with some vanilla. Not detecting the cream, hint of maple, or strong cake flavor. Cloying with no depth
It’s fine for when I want something warm at night I suppose, but it’s nothing really to write home about.
Flavors: Rooibos, Vanilla
Some friends got me this for my birthday last spring, and then I didn’t see them until November, and this is the first time I’m having the tea.
It IS tasty, but whoa nelly, that is SWEET. I only usually put sugar/honey/maple into some herbal teas, or lapsang souchong.
This is more of an occasional tea, I think. But it is nice, and they also gave me one of those super cute cupcake tea infusers. :)
Still on the fence about this one. I thought I would hate it as I’m not much for dessert teas, but it’s not bad. Strong maple and vanilla flavours. The maple is what’s throwing me off because I personally hate maple anything, but I’m still drinking this..
Flavors: Caramel, Maple, Vanilla
Hello Pumpkin Pie!
Loving this sweet and bold blend. It smells like pumpkin pie spice and tastes even better! Not artificial tasting, but balanced with notes of caramel, molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. Goodbye Starbucks pumpkin spice latte, hello Pumpkin Chai!
Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Clove, Molasses, Natural Pumpkin Spice Flavor, Nutmeg, White Chocolate
This is what I call “my cup of zen”
One of the rare teas in my cupboard that smells incredible and surprisingly tastes even better. It’s a delicate white tea with hints of jasmine, hibiscus, and a field of flowers. It has a light sweetness, strong aroma, and balanced flavor. Floral without being too perfumey. Each flavor becomes more pronounced with each sip. It’s like a bouquet of flavors and aromas that slowly blooms over the course of drinking. Beautiful and refreshing
Flavors: Floral, Hibiscus, Jasmine, Rosehips
I bought a tin of this a while ago without evening sampling it first. I took a gamble and assumed I would like this tea based on the fact that its a rooibos blend. Plus it has sprinkles. Realistically how bad can a tea that has sprinkles in it be? Needless to say I ended up really liking this tea. However more recently I decided one day to try it as a tea latte.
Hands down it tastes amazing as a latte. I’ve been drinking it like this ever since and have never looked back since.
I was a bit skeptical at first adding dairy to rooibos because I don’t think I’ve added dairy to herbal teas before? Nevertheless it tastes delicious and will be the only way I’ll drink it from now on.
This is the only milk oolong i’ve ever tried but I sure do love it! The creaminess it gives without any added flavors is amazing. This is my go-to when I just want a clean flavor.
I love serving this to non-tea drinkers. They are so confused where the creaminess is coming from. All natural baby! I can’t wait to try other milk oolongs to compare :)
Full disclosure: on it’s own this tea is not a 90%. It is kind of a boring vanilla rooibos, a little sweet but not remarkable.
HOWEVER I am going to tell you a wonderful tea secret that might change your mind about this tea if you have tried it before and been unimpressed:
If you like to drink teas latte style; this tea blends with almost any herbal or black tea perfectly and takes the drink to a whole new level.
I am very fond of blending it with dessert-y herbals, iced OR hot. I sub like 1 scoop of it in for a travel mug and two for a pot. It adds a taste of creamy vanilla that blends really well with the macadamia milk I use for lattes.
Flavors: Brown Sugar, Caramel, Cream, Honey, Vanilla
