Recent Tasting Notes
I used 2 and 1/2 scoops of dry leaf for my 473 ml thermos.
This tisane is satisfying as a mint tisane. I was initially drawn by the prospect of having fruit flavours mixed with the mint. I was also intrigued by the addition of the juniper berries. The mint flavour isn’t too pronounced and allows the apple and juniper berry flavours to come through. Sweet on the finish with a satisfying refreshing mint feel. The flavour reminds me of the taste of eating fruit after brushing my teeth.
For my second infusion, I used about 1/3 less water than from the first one and allowed it to infuse for 10 minutes. The mint flavour was less prevalent and the apple and juniper were allowed to come through a little bit more.
This is not a tisane to leave in while drinking. The apple gives a tart flavour which mixes very poorly with the mint.
Cold-brewed this tisane has a nice mint flavour which does not compliment the sour-tartness of the apple.
I only drink this one when I am having trouble falling asleep. 8 times out of 10 it works. I usually begin to feel drowsy within ½ an hour of drinking it and if I am still up an hour after the tea is gone, I cannot focus and feel pretty dopey. It has a great smooth flavour. I really enjoy the minty after taste. However, if I drink this tea more than two nights in a row I wake up with a headache the following morning.
I needed a jasmine fix, and I really wanted to see how this compares to the Teavivre jasmine silver needle. I only drank this tonight though, no comparison.
Not much different than the first note I wrote on this tea, smooth, slightly sweet, slightly grassy, not overpowering. Man…..I love white tea!
Next time, I will be comparing this to Teavivre’s version.
I thought this was so-so last year, but then I tried it this year and BAM! I like it, chocolate with a kick, and I love chocolate!
I am not usually a fan of spicy foods or anything, so the mild spiciness of this tea is good for me!
Definitely something that I would drink again, I hope it comes back next year too!
Yummy and creamy!
This would taste like an orange creamsicle if it was cold brewed…..I will have to try that next!
Hot, this is sweet and satisfying, leaving a refreshing feeling in your mouth. Not too sweet though, because the creaminess makes it just right.
The rooibos base is also very complementing in this tea.
This is similar to last spring’s dreamsicle.
This is my absolute favourite tea ever. Traditionally, I have kept to blacks and greens but this is the tea that reintroduced me to the fact that herbals can be just as delicious. Pink Flamingo has an extremely bold citrus taste that’s not for everyone, but it is balanced quite well with the hibiscus, beetroot and eucalyptus. It’s like candy to me! So sad that it is not carried anymore.
A very delicate green, with floral notes and hints of hay. While the grassiness has been reduced, its still clearly present. Very easy to oversteep, leading to some biterness – be careful. On the whole, while I do like it, I’m not as enamored as some. It’s a strong Japanese green, but not miraculous.
Bought 10g. of this to try it.
the dry leaves smell like a lemon lollipop! mmm… this is promising.
steeped that smell is tenfold! i’m surrounded by it! liqueur is the color of lemon lollipops!
time to taste: very lemony without being sour, not sweet thought it’s like a sugarless lollipop, i’m going to sweeten this with some agave to see what happens, not the greatest result the tea ends up tasting fake… not great learn from my mistakes drink this clean.
I really enjoy this one! It’s a nice fun tea for Christmas with the candy canes in it. The minty taste is strong when it first hits your mouth, but doesn’t linger too much, so is quite enjoyable. I often find when eating actual candy canes that the peppermint taste just gets stuck in your mouth and throat, and after a while it isn’t enjoyable – not the case with Santa’s Secret. A fun addition for Christmas.
