Finally got around to trying my second sample from Design A Tea. I wasn’t expecting it to do much for me so kind of forgot about it.
But this was pretty nice! Very coconuty with a touch of chocolate. It was creamy and pretty rich despite my using far too much water for the 2 g sample.
The leaves were quite small and a bit dusty unlike the pretty, large oolong leaves I’m use to.
One of my two free Design a Tea samples. I’m skeptical about my abilities, but here goes.
It smells very interesting. Not really getting peach from it, nor can I discern the vanilla. It smells more like a tropical fruit, I think. Or some sort of candy. Hm.
While steeping, I can smell the rooibos and the fruitiness steps back a little. It steps back even further when I taste it. Interesting! I don’t taste peach-vanilla in this, but I like it. It has a nice rooibos taste with a sweet and fruity finish. I don’t really like the scent (and it really smells like a cany that isn’t coming to mind right now), but it’s quite pleasant and smooth.
I drank some without milk and then added a splash. Both are good.
Yum! I love this combination! As I sip it, I am thinking about Dim Sum (YUM!) and I am wondering how I might make a dipping sauce with this tisane. It would be yummmmm!
Ah well… it’s quite good in my tea cup too. Light, citrus-y, with a lovely coconut taste that lingers in the finish. Lovely!
Oh yum! This is fantastic! I didn’t realize this was Pu-erh until after I tasted it!
This is even better than Numi’s Chocolate Pu-erh, in my opinion. The chocolate and pu-erh meld together to create a lovely, savory tasting chocolate. I love the rose notes.
This is absolutely awesome!
Very nice! I like this one chilled… I think that it somewhat subdues the flavor of the rooibos without completely masking it, and somehow that nutty, woody flavor of the rooibos really works with the spearmint flavor.
It’s cool and crisp. I like it… it is especially nice for nighttime!
Delicious! One of the best plum flavored teas (tisanes) that I’ve encountered. The plum and vanilla make a great combination and reminds me a bit of warm plum sauce (fresh plums that are cooked in a light syrup until all soft and mushy like applesauce) that’s been drizzled with vanilla cream sauce. YUM!
I LOVE this signature blend from Design a Tea. The blueberry flavor is sweet and juicy, the Oolong has that peach-y note – a nice complement to the blueberry. But what is really great about this blend is the NUTMEG. It doesn’t taste really strong at first, but as I continue to sip on the tea, I find the flavor becoming more intense.
This is not one of their “signature” blends. To get this tea, you have to “design” it. But, this one is a fairly simple design… passion fruit and Koslanda black tea.
It’s very good. The passion fruit is rich and sweet. The black tea is a pleasant, even-toned tea. Not particularly robust, but with the delicious passion fruit flavor it works.
This is REALLY good!
Having tried one or two other Ice Wine teas, I kinda figured what this would taste like… but this truly exceeds those expectations! This is definitely the BEST Ice Wine tea I’ve tasted!
It is sweet and I like the flavor of the ice wine and the pear together. The pear gives it a very pleasing smoothness. I like this very much.
LiberTEAS told me this was good and I had to try it for myself!!! It smells like Pineapple and chai more pineapple than chai…which I appreciate very much!
This infuses really dark and really fast!
The taste is AWESOME!!!! I can safely say this is my FAVORITE Chai to date!!!! The flavoring is wonderful! The spices underneath…
The ingredients and benefits from everything immense! The complete package if you are on that favors pineapple!
I was unable to find this one on their website but I am sampling it now. It’s Lemongrass with coconut powder. It smells wonderful! Almost like a Mike’s Hard Lemonade or something! Sugary-Sweet-Lemony-Coconut-YUM!
This is lovely…the taste is light and seems to be perfect for summer. Altho I am currently drinking it hot I am thinking about putting it in the fridge and drinking the rest cold. So…I will, I think – and report back…
For the hot tho – it’s really good HOT…a nice even lemon flavor with a hint of coconut to assist! Refreshing!
This tisane has been staring at me for at least a week so I finally gave in! Altho it’s a little mistimed I figured I would drink it anyways. Lets just hope the ‘need to cuddle after drinking this tea’ doesn’t kick in while I am still working…that would just be a harassment charge waiting to happen! LOL
I can smell a lot of chamomile which almost scares me. I can see a lot of lavender which almost scares me.
I’m pleased to report that the Rooibos and Cherry Flavoring tone down my fears mentioned above.
I do like this one. I’m a little surprised, actually. This is very pleasant. I wonder what chocolate would taste like with it…hum…
I really like the combination of chamomile and lavender. While rooibos isn’t my favorite “tea” – it works pretty well in this blend. The woodsy flavor lends a nice depth of flavor to what would otherwise be a somewhat thin tasting tisane.
There is a nice floral flavor to this blend (I guess that’s not surprising). Sweet and very pleasant to sip, especially later in the evening. (like it is right now!)
