Got this in a swap with Emilie, thanks again!
This smells fantastic, mmm chocolate covered strawberries. The liquor it’s a really pretty deep orange-red.
Really lovely flavor, dark and delicious. Definitely a cocoa taste and not just a “we dumped chocolate syrup in it” taste, which is great. The strawberry mingles really well and I pick it up as a bit of an aftertaste. Yummy!
I got this tea in one of the two sampler packs so I decided I would try it Tonight
I haven’t tried a lot of chai teas so I was a little hesitant
Iv been looking around and it said this tea was good with milk so I added some heated milk to this (I actually spilt the milk all over the microwave :/ )
Back to the tea now
It was good. It had quite a bit of ginger in it so I didn’t like it very much
In all a nice tea but I probably would not buy it
iv had this tea before but never got around to writing about it
i am a very big fan of oolongs so this tea appealed to me
i steeped this tea 4 times and i thought that the third steep was the best
1st steep: a little bitter, but still good, barely tasting the milkiness
2nd steep: barely bitter, starting to taste the milkiness
3rd steep: AMAZING. not bitter, super smooth, full on milk flavour, best steep so far
4th steep: kind of losing the milkiness, starting to run out of flavour, eh
in all a GREAT tea i would definitely purchase (even though i have 50 grams:)
oh and also everyone!
i have gotten two boxes of samplers so i will be reviewing those over the next couple weeks and hopefully i will be receiving tea from other steepster users so i will be reviewing those as soon as i get it
I’ll start by saying I drink all my teas iced, and I don’t do any of the lingo, I just know what I like!
And I LOVE this!
Maybe it helps that I love popcorn, I’m not sure, but this is one of my faves. I was in DT a few weeks ago making my first tin purchase, when I asked the salesclerk to give me two of her favourites. This was one of them, and I’m so glad it was.
Tastes just like it smells, popcorn and apples. who knew?!
I got a sample of this back n March and am finally giving it a go. I am steeping it up in my perfect tea mug for around 3/4 minutes-ish. I love citrus teas BUT find they are usually not done well, so I am eternally on the search for a good one. I am not a fan of green teas in general but find they do work well for citrus, so I hope I don’t regret this decision.
The dry aroma is very sharp, like the zest of a clementine, tangerine or other sweet orange-like fruit. The steeped liquor is much more muted, with more of a green tea aroma than anything else. by that, i mean sweet hay or grass. Fields after the rain, that sort of thing. : )
In terms of taste, the citrus is not very forward. It is nicely disguised in the background of the green tea and is actually really pleasant. I would like a bit more citrus, but this really works. Especially to the idea of a tangerine tea, since there is the sweetness from the green. Definitely suitable but not a re-buy.
PS – The beau is now the fiancee. After eight years, we’re now “official.” I’m so excited! Now to plan and pay for (what we hope to be) a small intimate country wedding. We shall see..
Dry notes- smells just like a Pina Colada
I had to have this iced. It tastes just like a Pina Colada, aside from the not creamy-ness. I think this would be great with a splash of Malibu Rum… YUM!
I really enjoyed how well the pineapple & coconut played together. My only concern, slightly too sweet. I enjoy my teas without any sweetness (unless they’re black iced teas). So next time I will avoid adding the sugar hearts that come in it.
Even though I seem to have tasting problems, I was really interested in this and wanted something to keep me company at work. I was really concerned at first. This smelt like grapefruit while it was steeping. I really DO NOT like grapefruit. I got another tea from here as a sample and it had grapefruit in it. I don’t remember what it was called, but it was definitely gross to me. Luckily, this looses the grapefruit smell after steeping.
I tried to make this iced, but ran out of time before work, so now it’s a kinda weird lukewarm thing. I feel like I can taste more with this than I have been with the other teas. It tastes and smells like the orange sherbet ice cream that my dad would always get me. Hopefully I can taste more when I get back to normal.
This tea came as a sample from Indigobloom – thanks so much!
The dry leaf is indeed very pretty with the shimmers of gold. After I smelled it, this definitely seems like a holiday tea but I’m having it as my after lunch tea anyway. :)
Steeped for 5 minutes via regular teapot method. There is something VERY strong in this tea that reminds me of Harney and Sons hot cinnamon spice. I think it must be the clove element, it’s actually kind of numbing my tongue. There does seem to be a lot of cinnamon too. I guess I’m really not one for cloves in tea for some reason. I don’t know if I can finish this… it’s too spicy for me. I tried adding some soymilk and it was still too strong — but thank you for the sample!
It’s been so long since I’ve done a proper tasting note, I’m not actually sure how to describe this tea.
I would say this one is earthy but not in a straight up dirty kind of way. Maybe like wet leaves – oh wait, that’s what it is. :)
I can sort of taste the ‘coffee’ thing but wouldn’t say this was a substitute for coffee. It’s very good though.
I was very surprised by this tea
I got it in one of two sampler packs from David’stea a couple days ago and this probably the best one so far
Im not a big fan of hot teas on hot mornings so I brewed it up as an iced latte and boy o boy was it ever good
It’s a nice roobois and the maple syrup really brings out the sweetness in it but I still added a little bit of agave but that may just be personal preference
In all a Sickkkk tea I would buy and recommend to everyone
