150 tasting notes

If you’re any enemy of fun, please stop reading now. Seriously, shoo! Go and have some dental work done, get a jump on your taxes, or simply just be gone with you. HoopLa from Indie Tea is all about fun, and I won’t have anyone who can’t appreciate the ingenious mix of herbal tea, fruit, and vegan gummy bears ruining the party! AND I don’t want to hear any nonsense about about gummy bears having no place in a serous tea. HoopLa is seriously delicious and I applaud Indie tea for making my cup of herbal tea even more enjoyable.

HoopLa is chock-a-block with dried fruit, vegan gummy bears, and herbs. The infusion is a bright yellow with a distinctive, fresh, lemon aroma. At first sip, a wonderful, uplifting, citrusy brightness washes over me. The body is light and refreshing with a sweet, lingering finish. I can’t wait to take another sip!

Indie Tea is donating 5% of their tea sales in October to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and we all know that breast cancer research is a great cause. And if you add a tin of Cranberry Boobilicious to your order they’ll make an additional donation to the cause. It’s a win-win-win-win-win situation!

Gummy bears in tea? That does sound like a cup full of fun. And a donation to breast cancer research? I will have to put this on my list to try out.

Ashley Bain

This is amazing! I am trying my hand at blending and wishing I could put things like this in my tea… why didn’t I just do it? But first – an Indie tea order. shwing!

Angrboda

Gummy bears? Like… really? Real ones? GOSH! O.O I nominate this as most bizarre tea ever. How weirdly intriguing!

Vicki Guillem ☀

Jenn

Angrboda Yep! Really real gummy bears… so much fun!

Vicki Guillem ☀

Thank you!!! What other teas of theirs do you recommend?

Jenn

Vicki Gullem HoopLa is the first Indie Tea I’ve tried thus far. I have three others to try, but I’ve fallen behind on my tea sampling. Poor me, right? I think that LiberTeas may have a few recommendations though :)

Devilish

Wow! I want to try this… I heart gummy bears!!!! :D :D :D

This was an interesting mix in my mouth. I’ve never had an herbal infusion featuring gummy bears. It reminded me of a very light, floral fruit punch.

This tea has great chamomile flavor. I would give it a 100 percent for that. However, the flavors of the other spices were definitely lacking.

I wanted a tea strong enough to wake me up in the morning and I found it. This blend is very robust, malty, almost chocolately. The tea in the tin is beautiful – a mixture of black, brown, and yellow leaves.

This tea had a well-balanced flavor profile. You can taste each of the ingredients – the white tea, the mango, the coconut flakes, and the hibiscus flowers. There is a slight sweetness to the tea but the tartness from the mango and hibiscus are more dominant.

This tea was very enjoyable. The lavender, rose, and orange really show through and were very relaxing. However, these flavors overpowered the taste of the Dragon Well which was very subtle in this blend.

Very nice flavored tea. Groovy package look. Suits this little teapot well. My humans liked it, too. http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/review-indie-teas-road-to-hana-tea.html

My humans like Dragon Well green tea, so they thought a flavored blend based on this tea would be good. Unfortunately, they didn’t taste the tea too much. Lots of great rosebuds and orange pieces, though! http://is.gd/2xF2Do

Relaxing after a busy day of dance class and running around. This is a nice cup to sip while relaxing! I can taste each note – the lavender, the rose, the orange and the green tea. A lovely medley of flavors.

Aw, I like the name of this one. But I am an unabashed romantic…

Fairyfli

What kind of dance?

The dry leaf is GORGEOUS! Big slices of dried orange and rose buds and petals tossed with large Dragon Well leaves and tiny lavender buds. It smells gorgeous too. I especially love the aroma of the brewed liquor, the lavender and rose and citrus meld together and the fragrance is intoxicating.

It tastes rather amazing too. I am happy that they used Dragon Well in this blend, so often in blends like these Sencha is the choice, and not that I have anything against a good Sencha, but with these light floral notes, the Dragon Well seems a better choice than a buttery Sencha.

Light, sweet, floral with just a hint of citrus in the background. Delightful!

My full-length review for this tea will publish on January 21 at noon Eastern Time.

This is one of the better mint green teas out there, in my opinion. A very nice balance between mint and green tea. Delicious!

This is a very pleasing balance of peppermint and gunpowder green tea. No one flavor overwhelming the others. The peppermint is strong, but so is the green tea, and I’m not getting the overwhelmingly vegetative taste that I sometimes get from a gunpowder green. A very nice blend, indeed.

I’m a fan. Loose leaf teas are my favorite, and the only reason I ever have bagged tea is because TJ MAxx gets so many and I am a sucker for cool packaging. This one was a gift, and I like it. I’m a fan of benefits in tea, and consider it more important than the taste. The taste of this doesn’t rock my world, but I feel better drinking it than purely delicious blends.

This is a wonderful and deliciously different chai. It’s been a while since I’ve last tasted it, and I didn’t realize how much I missed it until I sipped it again. It is so nice.

It isn’t overly spicy, but, what I would call a well-seasoned spice blend. It has a good amount of spice without being hot or overwhelming. The black tea is strong and malty and delicious. I can taste the hint of orange in the background and it offers a nice light flavor to the blend, giving it a sense of balance.

A very good chai.

Yum! Chai!

This is a very good chai. A very good blend of spices – it tastes even with no one spice overwhelming the blend. Just a delicious, warm spicy cup! The black tea base is solid and delicious.

I’m liking this the more I sip on it.

This is one really awesome blend!

A lot of different tastes in the cup, primarily I taste hints of citrus and licorice, but there is a nice smoky spiced undertone to it too. Very good! Not very much in the way of the chocolate flavor, but, the other flavors going on are delicious and intriguing. Spicy, but not too spicy, sweet… but not too sweet. Very well-balanced.

I really am liking what I’m seeing from this tea company so far. Cool packaging and interesting and very DIFFERENT blends.

I’m sending a little of this to a friend but I’m finishing up with a cup of my own. I can taste the citrus more this time around and am enjoying it more than my prior attempts therefore I am upping the rating! YUM!
