Recent Tasting Notes
This is my second cup of Kanpe, and I’ve decided that it’s a keeper. I love the smell of the dry tea, it reminds me of Christmas, in a fruity way.The spices are definitely what makes this tea. I’m drinking it hot, but the last time I had it both hot and iced (Ok, I wasn’t super keen on it when I tried it hot before, so I didn’t drink much and just put it in the fridge). I’m thinking it may not have been strong enough before, but now it’s nice. I was happy that the hibiscus isn’t overpowering. I would buy this again, but I don’t think it’ll be a tea that I always need to have in my cupboard.
Really no scent coming from the leaves, let’s hope there’s more flavour than there is scent!
All-in-all, not bad, but it’s not blowing me out of the water either. I’m used to Red Rose and Tazo Awake tea so maybe my taste buds are off? There is the taste of a black tea with hints of roses, but it’s rather weak. I want this to wow me! To sweep me off into a lovely tea-induced coma! Sadly, it’s dropped the ball. Oh well, at least I tried it right?
I bought this tea for my mom for mother’s day. I found it on the kitchen shelf today and it’s still brand new. =( Okie. I figure this tea would be better under my belly than on the shelf. Ahh… a good tea in deed. I like the texture and the great matcha taste. I also cut a slide of cheese cake and sprinkled some powder on the cake. =) Happilicious!
I got this shipped to me this week, and was kinda fretting about the price as a 25g bag of this cost ~$9.75 – more expensive than the 2 other 50g bags I had bought! I went ahead to try it out first thing Wednesday night around midnight, after having gotten back from a night out at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. I was a tad disappointed when I tasted it and found it pretty bland :( Mind you, i was very excited to try it and didn’t brew it following the instructions to the letter.
Here I am now at my computer with a freshly brewed cup in hand on a Saturday afternoon and I can’t get over the taste! I followed the directions to the letter this time and the difference is like day and night! The taste is so nice – very present leafy greens but with a nice subtle smoky finish that lingers forever! I’m new to tea and I love strong coffee (read: espresso, straight up) so I have a hard time with the sometimes very subtle flavors in tea, so I tend to like black teas like Earl Gray and Irish Breakfast over green and white teas, but this one is just amazing without being too strong – there is no bitterness in this whatsoever
I get the feeling my wallet is gonna take a beating buying larger quantities of this
This is my favourite tea right now (and pretty much always). I always re-steep a couple times and find that the third steep usually tastes best. I don’t normally do a fourth steep but right now I can’t remember if that’s because it doesn’t taste as good or if it’s just because I get a bit bored. I really find the mango to be the overwhelming fruit taste for me in the tea. I always let the water cool for a few minutes before I make it because I do find this is any easy tea to singe and get that bitter taste if you aren’t careful.
Love Love Love… This truly is my happy tea.
Made a cup of this tonight…it’d been a while and I needed something cozy. It’s quite nice—I appreciated that the cinnamon didn’t burn my mouth like with some other ones (Bengal Spice if you let it go too long). It’s sweet, but not as sweet as some other cinnamon teas (once again, I’m looking at you, Bengal Spice). I’m going to try to resteep this to see if I can get good results like others have. Mmmm.
This tastes just like an herbal version of Harney & Sons’ Hot Cinnamon Spice (which they actually do make). Tasty, spicy, cinnamon-y, and a bit of citrus, with no pesky caffeine to get in the way. I didn’t realize this had citrus in it until it had shipped here and I smelled it—I was looking for something without citrus, and I was a little concerned I wouldn’t like it because I didn’t like the smell of the leaves. However, it’s quite yummy! Not what I’d call a chai, but maybe that’s because I haven’t tried it chai-style yet. I need to give it the chance. This is good!
I like this tea, but don’t love it. It’s excellent as a latte but I find that it has a bit too much of a sweetness to it for my liking.
I don’t even know when I wrote this or why… I can’t imagine what tea I thought I was writing about because I LOVE forever nuts. It’s blissful. I’ve been drinking alot of herbal’s lately because I’ve been finding that caffeine is making me feel a bit sick and this one is high on my list. It’s a beautiful and AMAZING latte.
To-go, courtesy of the $1 “straight tea” promotion. I was really wanting some kukicha but they didn’t have any, so I went with this as a mellow alternative, and it served me well.
This is a tasty but not remarkable Tie Kwan Yin. Sweet, floral, but a bit subdued. I wasn’t sure about the T-sac in a cup situation for an Oolng so I think it performed really well under the circumstances. I left it in longer than intended and there wasn’t even a touch of bitterness.
Had another cup of this while taking a break from the office, they finally let me buy a bag to take home! So excited! So yummy…I understeeped it out of fear of over steeping, but it was still delicious. I brought home 50 grams for the wife.
It’s an amazing combination, it’s chocolatey without being overly so, and it just really hits the spot.
Edited to add: There is apparently no chocolate in this! It just combines flavors to trick your mind into tasting chocolate. Ingredients: Bai Mu Dan, black tea, chamomile, and coconut.
So after my horrible experiences with Second Cup, I desperately needed good tea. Plus, I had an hour to kill, so I stopped in to DavidsTea. Surprise, surprise, they had their new teas available on the counter for sniffing. Oh man, guys. You’re going to love them. This one in particular caught my sniffer. It’s a black/white tea blend with chocolate…it smells out of this world. It tastes even better. They couldn’t sell me a bag, but I did get some to go and saved the bag from that for resteeping at home. It’s delicious. I can’t wait to get more.
A huge thanks to DaisyChubb for this tea! Dry, the scent is velvety, with just a touch of coconut and I can see some sizeable chunks of vanilla pod in there as well.
I oversteeped a little, so I added just a touch of sugar and it is so great! First, the black tea hits you, then the coconut. The rum takes over and the vanilla adds a really creamy touch.
It’s not as nutty as I hoped it would be, but that’s actually alright – it maintains a great balance between nut and coconut, with a bit of a grassy bite. I steeped it for a little too long I think and so it’s quite astringenty, but still easy enough to drink. I’ll have to review it again when I don’t forget to leave it steeping.
The smell of it raw is incredible. The walnut is definitely there, as is an almond and coconut syrup smell, all toasted together for a slightly sweet nutty scent.
One of the other free samples I recieved in my most recent order. Have to say I’m not that impressed with it. I feel it would work a lot better if mixed with an oolong tea instad of the mix of nuts. It’s almost like brewing some trailmix. The banana flavor is enjoyable, but the spicy aftertaste of the nuts ruins it. When I say spicy it’s not in a good way. As you sip you get the initial flavor then there is a strange watery flavor inbetween the closing. I’m glad I tried it, but I won’t be buying more.
