Recent Tasting Notes
As others have noted the smell is very medicinal, lets take a sip…
Hmmm… not unlike Raspberry Nectar, except I find the lemongrass much more tolerable in this. Not the greatest of flavours, but something about this tea just feels detoxifying! I like this so much better than some of the other wellness teas I have tried (Skinny and The Cardio, I’m lookin’ at you!) and it’s exactly what I need after a meat-and-junk-food filled weekend with the in-laws.
Gave another sample of this a try. I have a tin somewhere at home, but am trying to clear out samples. This one was composed more like what I am used to, with visible pieces of fruit. There was something that loooked like a strawberry in my cup, enticing me. While this is better than my last tasting (I decreased water temperature a bit in deference to the green tea) it still takes on a bitter edge toward the end. I truly wish there were no black tea in this blend, I think I would enjoy it more without that addition. At first I get a sweet green tea taste, not overly vegetal but clearly green with a hint of fruit and then the bolder black tea steps up the plate to dominate the finish. It’s rare that I want a green tea, but I think they are starting to grow on me…
Using a free sample obtained from David’s Tea during their recent birthdy party. Intriguingly, this sample has no fruit pieces in it, which I remember featuring in the blend. This was one of my first DT favourites, one of the few I have refilled my tin of. However, apparently I haven’t had it in almost a year. A year later, I wonder what I think of it. I’m starting to think that perhaps knowing too much about tea ruins my enjoyment of it…I used to just try anything and give it a go, but now I have certain prejudices against ingredients, base teas, and additives. So when I noticed green rooibos in this (which I surely wouldn’t have when I first tried it) I was uneasy. Also, there is green AND black tea in this. Now I think that’s weird. I’ve steeped this as a green, to be safe.
Smells…like green and black tea. Kinda hard to explain, but they are both present in aroma with a fruity something sticking around afterward. Tastewise, I am disappointed. I might have over-steeped it for a black, or steeped it too hot for a green but this is a little bitter. The fruitiness is very vague, and I mostly get a sense of slightly burnt black tea, not of exceptional quality, either. I think a hint of sweetness would save this cup, but I’m not much for that. I am pretty certain it is the black tea that is throwing this off… Will try again under better circumstance another time. I really do remember enjoying it!
Sooo I finally got around to trying this today!
And sadly it is not for me (I took it off my shopping list haha)
There are a few things as to why it’s not good for me though, and it might mean that it’s a good tea for you!
First of all, it was a “to go” tea, but it didn’t taste burnt or bitter so , meh who knows!
Second, it does taste like carrot cake.
Not the kind of carrot cake I like. haha. I’m a bit picky when it comes to my carrot cake. It has to have pineapple for yummy moistness, and most importantly, cream cheese icing. Without the cream cheese, it’s just like a spice cake to me, which is the hugest “meh” taste to me – for whatever reason.
So on that note, it tastes like carrot cake. But not MY carrot cake. Aren’t I special haha! Blame my grandma for instilling C-Cake tradition in me n_-
This is the first Gyokuro I’ve ever tried. It was nice, but not astounding. It tasted like a nice but standard sencha to me. Light, buttery, slightly grassy. I’ll have to try some other Gyokuros to compare. Also, why am I following package instructions lately? It’s not working for me. I went with 2 minutes and this was starting to turn bitter. It would definitely have been nicer starting with shorter infusions.
Huh. I thought I didn’t like this tea, but looking back at my rating, apparently I did like it. Ah well, it’s been sitting in our cupboard for way too long. I cold steeped it today and again for tomorrow to use up the last of the tin.
it is hibiscus, which is why I thought I didn’t like it, but iced, the cinnamon wins out and it’s a tart treat. The lemon works in wonderfully and it’s just a yummy cup.
Really enjoying this fall collection of teas! I didn’t know what to expect before trying this, and the flavours are unique but definitely good. The ingredients all taste great together – I love how the cinnamon doesn’t really come through much except for the warmth it gives. The orange peel is there but subtle, and these mulberries really do give this a caramel aspect.
You know what? I’ve tried it. And, I was not impressed. REALLY not.
I’m sure the taste of carrot were so weak because i’ve tried it as a tea to go from DT Saint-Bruno. Seriously, this taste like a simple Oolong tea with a little carrot aftertaste. It won’t taste amazing or anything like a flavor tea would do. It’s just, sad.
Try it and say me i’m wrong.
I want to be wrong, haha!
This is actually very good, I wasn’t sure at first but Yesterday night I added a little bit of cane sugar and it was really good.
It is a little tart without the sugar but with it it bring all the flavors without being too sweet. I really like the peppermint aftertaste.
I’m really sad because I wanted to like this tea..
But today was my third time drinking this tea and probably the last. I wasn’t able to finish it… All the flavors taste really odd to me and I can’t stand the smell either… I don’t know I think it smell like something ..Moldy…:S. And strangely it’s giving me a headache.
Before trying the sample I got with an order from DT I was thinking about buying this tea.. I’m really happy to had try it first because now I know I will not buy it.
Based on the description, I really wanted to like this one. And yet, I found it totally underwhelming, even a bit off-putting when I smelled it in the store. Anyway, I got a sample with my order, so I figured I should give it a go.
And meh. There really is a strong orange/citrus presence to this one. I don’t know what mulberries taste like (But their leaves are lovely – thanks Mulberry Magic!), but I’m pretty sure they didn’t make or break this tea. I mostly taste citrus with a spice background, and a hint of caramel. Like if I really think about it, I can taste caramel maybe.
So yeah. Not so much on this one.
Yum. So much yum.
And I’m a bit surprised to be saying that, actually.
I smelled this one in store and didn’t care for it much at all. I passed it right by on my way to some other favourites instead.
But when I received a sample in my order the other day, I figured I should give it a go. And hurray that I did!
The aroma of this is very apple-y when brewed, smells almost like hot apple cider, which I think is lovely. Just the right amount of spice, and the green tea does add a dimensionality here as well.
The taste is tart apple with a nice natural sweetness. The tea isn’t lost in all the fruit, and there’s a good balance. I think I’m going to get along very nicely with this little number for the next couple of months!
