This is totally YUMMY! When I read “delicately tart” – I was worried because that usually means “pretty darned tart” but this was TRUE to the description! There are honkin’ HUGE Papaya chunks in here and I LOVE IT! The black and green tea blend with the fruit seem to have the best of all worlds here. Lovely!
I love Darjeeling… so I usually like most Darjeeling teas that I encounter. However, sometimes I come across one that is really delightful… like this one.
The flavor is amazing. Sweet, light, a hint of nutty flavor and even a floral note. Very smooth. Golden! It seems to shimmer on the tongue, it tastes so good and light and lovely.
I am enjoying a cup of this with my breakfast, and my opinion hasn’t changed on it since the first time I tried it – it is a delightful Ceylon, nicely brisk (especially considering it’s a Ceylon) with a smooth, creamy chewiness that I am really liking.
There is a backdrop of a honey-like tone to it as well, it isn’t like an IN YOUR FACE honey taste, just a… just-barely-there hint of honey that combines with the other qualities of this tea quite well and make for a very interesting cup of tea.
I was in the mood for latte so I grabbed this Chai today – it is rich and spicy. The Assam is of good quality – no bitterness, malty and toothsome. The spices are delicious here and are nicely balanced: cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and ginger… the spices are warm and comforting on this overcast day and there is a very nice peppery kick at the finish!
This latte is smooth, rich, creamy and YUMMY!
Wow… OK… I was sitting at the computer when the timer went off to let me know that this tea was finished infusing. When I walked into the kitchen – PEACH scent filled the air! It smelled so good. YUM.
The combination if the woodsy rooibos and the peach flavor creates an interesting taste – the flavor of the rooibos actually seems to cut through some of the sweetness of the peach which is something I really didn’t expect. Sometimes when I encounter a peach flavored tea the sweetness of the peach is quite intense – not that its a bad thing, because I love peaches – but I like how this tastes more like the fresh fruit rather than a processed, syrupy peach pie filling.
This is a very delicious and surprising rooibos! NICE!
This is a remarkable black tea – very even tone to it. Pleasant chewiness, and even a hint of a malty note that is a bit uncharacteristic for a Ceylon tea! But the thing I’m enjoying most about it is that so delightful sweetness that is very honey-like. It is robust and brisk and yet smooth.
I am getting no bitterness to it at all, just a very pleasant, sweet flavor. There is only a slight astringency to it… it’s VERY VERY GOOD.
The dry leaf has a strong vegetative scent with a subtle hint of flower. The brewed liquor is much softer.
Very light in flavor – fruit-like, sweet, and very yummy. Even though it smells strongly of vegetable, there is very little suggestion of it in the flavor… it’s there… but it hits just at the start of the sip and is quickly washed away by the sweet fruity notes. Astringency is faint but the palate feels very fresh and clean in the finish.
I like this one a lot.
This is a delicious way to wind down this evening. I still have a few things that I need to get done though, so I’m not quite ready to start reaching for the herbals… so this is smooth and relaxing… without being TOO relaxing.
The scent is VERY mango, and it translates into the flavor very well. Sometimes the mango flavor in tea is a bit soft – NOT here. This is MANGO paradise! The green tea is pleasant tasting too – fresh, slightly vegetative, and sweet.
A delightful cuppa!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (and again!)…I LOVE ME SOME ALISHAN!!!!
This one is screaming multiple infusions…so I am going to put it to the test! For my first trick…I mean…attempt…
It looks like an Alishan SHOULD look…it smells slightly floral-sweet. More floral than sweet. As it infuses I can pick up the slightest hint of a vegetable of some sort…green peppers, maybe!?
On the tongue – it’s smooth and sweet and semi-floral!
I’m not sure why…but I can see myself drinking this from a stylish tea thermos – thru a park – on a foggy night!
