Recent Tasting Notes
A very relaxing herbal blend, but a hint of bitterness… perhaps the valerian? The chamomile isn’t overly strong, which is nice, but adding some extra peppermint (I have a plant on the windowsill) made it even better. That said, I like Teaopia’s Sleep Well blend a bit more, although Mother’s Little Helper is still a nice cup before bed and it does help with sleep.
Not terrible!! finally. Ugh!
Then again, not great either. I don’t appreciate the odd combo of citrus/cinnamon and ginger. Not in my food, or my tea apparently! and the cinnamon was a tad spicy. Nonethelss… Made as a latte, this was till better than I expected so I’m happy as I can be with it.
The orange part was really nice, I quite liked that… which is probably what redeemed my cup :)
Still, the rest of this sample will go to Dad. He’s like Mikey, he’ll drink almost anything I put in front of him! (mind you he can’t tell the difference between a black and an oolong but I am working on it!)
There’s only enough for one cup more anyhow.
There are things about this tea that quite enjoy, and others I dislike more than I expected to. A contradiction I daresay!
The rooibos part had me worried, but I think it works terrifically here… and the spices are lovely, except for the pepper! It’s biting and sharp. I dislike it in general so I’m not surprised that the trend extends into my tea preferences.
I taste coconut here, but not much ginger (thankfully).
Overall, an interesting chai. Pleasing, and yet frustrating all at once… Not one I would have been happy to pay money for but then again not too shabby for my only tea of the day!
I can’t believe I haven’t logged this one yet. This is my third or fourth drinking of this tea. I am loving it. It seems to be my go to tea for the “I am feeling crappy and need a pick my up” nights. It is a great green that I haven’t managed to turn bitter by oversteeping yet. The pomegranite gives this a sweet but also tart flavour to it. Definately a rebuy.
I disagree with the bad reviews, I think this tea’s really great. Make sure it has room to expand because it expands a lot! And it’s really beautiful. Would be lovely in a glass teapot.
The lemon myrtle and jasmine do take the forefront and there’s a hint of orange oil. I like the oolong base, it’s light and refreshing. Like the description says, it’s quite rejuvenating. I had received this as a sample and I’ll be purchasing more of it next order.
Smells amazing in the tin. Like coffee and caramel and chocolate and vanilla. MMMmmm.
Steeped in hot cocoa. MOCHA DELICIOUSNESS! There’s a hint of almonds that makes it sort of reminiscent of amaretto. This. is. so. good.
(I’m a huge coffee fan in addition to tea.)
“Chicory is well known for its toxicity to internal parasites. Chicory (especially the flower) was used as a treatment in Germany, and is recorded in many books as an ancient German treatment for everyday ailments. It is variously used as a tonic and as a treatment for gallstones, gastro-enteritis, sinus problems and cuts and bruises. (Howard M. 1987). Chicory contains inulin, which may help humans with weight loss, constipation, improving bowel function, and general health. In rats, it may increase calcium absorption and bone mineral density.”
Cool! Love yummy things that are also good for you. :)
I finally got around to making some (wheat- and sugar-free) carrot cake in muffin form with Carrot Cake-infused oil. They were seriously tasty (and seriously filling!). I think the tea helped add extra richness which played nicely with the walnuts I sprinkled in. I’m glad as I didn’t think it would make much difference, and it’s a shame to waste tasty tea.
This is a cool tea! It actually tastes like cake. I can taste that rich, savoury sweetness you get in a good carrot cake. I’m really glad this one wasn’t a disappointment after going for a whole tin of it on a whim! It’s sweet but nicely earthy so not overbearing. The apple and carrot get along very harmoniously here, and the coconut is nice and sweetly toasty.
I meant to make some carrot cake muffins tonight but I’m not feeling up to it, so this is a nice stand-in. And when I make the muffins, hopefully tomorrow, I’m definitely going to try infusing the recipe’s coconut oil with this!
When I first read about this tea, it sounded like a Zing Me substitute. When I smelled it, I was convinced. The staffer at my local DT also agrees. This is Zing Me, minus ginger and with the addition of yogurt, which I love. It lends a creaminess that put me in mind of a peach Campino hard candy, if anyone remembers those. I really enjoy it, and think that it is an acceptable Zing Me substitute. Also, it seems to be really hard to over-steep as this one was in the cup for at least 7 minutes and didn’t get bitter at all. After one sip, I bought 50 grams to take home. Yup.
I find this tea caters to your taste buds. It has a variety of teas in it and you taste what you want to. I generally pull peppermint as a high note, with undertones of green tea. My roommate tends to taste strong notes of green tea couples with the earthy pu’erh.
I like this tea for multiple reasons; it’s very versatile. It tastes great hot because the pu’erh grounds the mixture well. It also tastes fabulous cold because the peppermint is amplified making the tea very refreshing. It’s a great summer tea when it’s iced and I reckon it’ll be a good autumn tea that can carry you into the winter because of the dark pu’erh and mild green tea. It works well as both a morning tea and an afternoon tea, which comes in handy if you carry these teas to work. Lastly, it smells great in can and cup, which is always a bonus.
This tea also pairs wonderfully with peppered food if you’re looking to take your spice up a notch. The peppermint and ground pepper mix to make firecrackers dance across your tongue. If you enjoy spicy food or are looking to pull out the peppers in your food (because you sick perhaps, like I am today) then this is your tea.
If you are looking for a new autumn tea, I’d recommend trying this one.
P.S. This resteeps well.
I am trying this tea for the first time this morning, and so far I am quite enjoying it. It is my first oolong, and it was absolutely the vanilla that pulled me in. I am a sucker for vanilla.
The dry smell packs a lot of punch in the vanilla department, almost too much? I found it had less intensity while steeping, which I think is a good thing.
It tastes very much like vanilla, and I can’t say that I am getting any hints of orange like they suggest. It is very very smooth, which I appreciate, and I get the most vanilla flavour immediately after swallowing. As this is my first oolong, I can’t really speak to that flavour right now. I am looking forward to picking up an unflavoured one.
This is a tea that I think I will definitely purchase again, but I probably won’t be really anxious about making sure I never run out.
I made a 4C pot out of the last of this sample and shared with the hubby. I really have not completed the learning process for my tea pot… I might have to go back to a botum to make tea, because tea never seems to steep properly in my tea pot… Maybe it is the basket?
I will have to race out and buy more of this tea… A.S.A.P!!
Oh wow! Not only does this tea smell as decadent as a hug from my Hubby, but it tastes great too!
This is one I will be purchasing a full tin of (once I have an empty tin to put it in) It’s great as a latte too! I just need a proper milk frothier!!
I can’t type, I am sipping my second cup and it is chasing away the chills! Mmmmm!!
This tea is not my favorite. Doesn’t remind me of creme brulée at all…
I’ll drink it anyway because all my desert tea are actual tea (black or green) and this one have rooibos as a base so it is ok for an evening tea. Not one I’ll restock.
The flavor is really weak, but it is ok if I add cane sugar and milk. OK but not amazing.
I think I may just be really difficult with desert tea. I still need to find one I find spectacular. Any suggestion?
Well, I don’t really know what I think about this tea. I tried it 2 times since I got it. First time without adding anything, second time with a tiny bit of cane sugar and coconut milk.
The taste is really mild, and I was looking for a dessert tea when I ordered this tea so i’m a little disappointed. I prefer dessert tea to be sweet and kind of strong and when i’m not in the mood for sweet well I drink something else.
I don’t really know when I’ll want to drink this tea because it is sweet but so mild it doesn’t satisfy me the way it tought it would.
Anyway it was better with coconut and cane sugar.
