This was a sample I received thanks to BrewTEAlly Sweet
This isn’t an outstanding tea, but there’s nothing specifically negative about it. It’s lightly scented, so it was no suprise when the flavoring was light as well. The base doesn’t have a whole lot of oomph either, so I do get pomegranate (or raspberry?) flavor from it, which is good.
It’s not a bad tea, but I don’t really bave anything to rave about either here.
Thanks for a sample of this BrewTEAlly Sweet!
I’m not going to post a rating since I still have a cold, but I’m enjoying it thoroughly. I always enjoy a good jasmine :)
Drinking this before bed. Hopefully it helps me get to sleep for work in the morning at 6am:( at first it tastes like a normal chamomile then u get after notes of the peppermint on your tongue and Roobios in your throat. It’s definitely a soothing cup of tea and is already going to work and putting me to sleep:) beautiful color also, from the Roobios I presume. Goodnight fellow steepsters.
Shelly_Lorraine sent me some of this one to try! thank you! The package said to steep it for five minutes, so I did. There certainly was a strong black tea here but not much in the way of pom or raspberry flavor. It was a pretty bold blend with an odd flavor to it.. it’s tough to describe! But it has a bit of a chalky astringency. Not bad if you want a caffeine kick.
Thanks BrewTEAlly Sweet! I’ll be honest… I can’t really get any flavor out of this… Just a mild black tea with a slight aftertaste of pomegranate and raspberry. Nothing really makes it shine.
A nice base, but weak on the black currant. I got something vaguely fruity, but not necessarily currant. The base was malty, sweet, and flavorful.
EDIT: Oh! And thank you Shelley_Lorraine dor this tea! :-)
Not a bad cup. The base is uncommonly robust, but the black current flavor is weak. It has just a slight funky aftertaste.
Thanks BrewTEAlly Sweet (^.^)
My second mystery tea sample from BrewTEAlly Sweet (^.^)
This tea is kind of “blah” to me. Nothing particularly negative, but nothing to rave about either. It has very little aroma and the flavor doesn’t kick in till just before I swallow a sip. I detect more pomegranate than raspberry, which is appropriate considering its name. the tea base has a nutty aftertaste that I could do without, but it’s alright.
If I remember correctly, I received a bit of this tea from TeaEqualsBliss – thanks! (My apologies if I remembered incorrectly!)
I liked this tea quite a bit. Hint of smokiness, nice chocolate-y tones (although it could use more chocolate!) and the black tea has a nice, rich flavor to it. Creamy, yummy caramel tones … A really enjoyable dessert tea.
i was tempted to just eat this out of the bag, since my sample didnt have very much tea in it. i confess i had some apple peices :)
not bad overall. id do it again !
i bit sour when it was cold, but that could be fixed.
tasted like black mint tea.
very disappointed :(
Emilie sent me some of this! Thanks so much :)
It’s creamy and subtly sweet. The Caramel/Chocolate combo is nice but not overly flavorful. It’s dreamy and comforting but doesn’t quite satisfy my massive sweet tooth today.
On a normal day this one would probably do the trick so I am keeping that in mind.
Don’t get me wrong…this IS certainly tasty!
I’m just in rare sorts after yesterday…after this week!
Second steeping and the smokiness smooths out even more and the citrus shows through more obviously. Still very dark even on second use of leaves.
Good morning Steepster! I am tasting another tea from my sampler from Emilie this morning and I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised at this one. Being more of a dessert tea fan, “smoke-flavored” tea didn’t really sound all that “ME”. But, I was a member of the “two bite” club in pre-school, so I’ll just transform that into the “two-sip” club as an adult.
Well, I’ve made it past two sips already! :) The smoke flavor isn’t as overwhelming as I was afraid it was going to be, and I think my small addition of soy milk smooths it out even more. The description also says it has “citrus-bits” which I don’t know if I would have guessed otherwise. I can tell there’s a hint of something with the smoke, but I don’t know if my mind would have gone to citrus.
Overall, not a tea I would probably BUY for myself, but I definitely will drink the rest of what I have :) Thanks Emilie!
This smells really sweet, like bubblegum, when dry. It gets a bit more minty once it’s steeped. Unfortunately, it just tasted like a weak peppermint tea. I think I’m much happier just putting my own peppermint in, so I can get it as strong or weak as I like.
Don’t let my low rating scare you off though. I like really minty teas, but if you like yours a bit more subtle, you might like this. I have some left if anybody would like to give it a try.
The sprinkles in this are cute! It has a really weak sweet smell though. I was hoping the flavor would not match the smell. At three minutes, I could taste the tea (and it was good) but I could not taste any of the other flavors at all. As it cooled, I could taste a bit more creaminess but not much. I definitely don’t get any cakeiness from it. I’ll try it a bit longer next time and see if I can find any of the flavors.
Found this on ebay and thought eh I’ll try a sample. So very good. Very Mojitoish. Perfect for an afternoon treat. Yum!!
