Picked this one as my commute to work tea this morning; I was expecting a whammy of liquorice flavour and actually I was really excited for that because the three “licorice” related ingredients in this blend are all ones I love instead of overly sweet/cloying licorice root. So, you know, more in like with that awesome black licorice flavour I love. The idea of pairing that with bergamot/Earl Grey seemed genius to me! I mean, I love Tiger Tiger ice cream and that’s a pairing of black licorice and orange so it seemed like it’d translate well to tea.
Actually, though, the whole cup is much lighter on all flavours than expected. It was still good, but the licorice was light and definitely a little more on that kind of herbaceous fennel flavour than sweet, candy-like black licorice. As well, I definitely tasted the lemon in the blend but NOT the actual bergamot, which is a pretty key flavour for an Earl Grey. Also, I think the choice of green tea for the base was an interesting one. Honestly this probably would have worked better with black tea but the green tea was pleasant enough – definitely on the buttery/vegetal side with just a touch of smoke flavour to it. Since this is already an unconventional Earl Grey I think that a black base with the licorice related ingredients probably would have conveyed a better flavour while still having some resemblance to common place Earl Grey, however.
So yes, some criticisms. However, it was still a pretty pleasant cuppa and a nice enough first tea of the day. One cup is good enough for me, though.
Flavors: Fennel, Herbaceous, Lemon, Licorice, Smoke, Vegetal
This tea is not one of my favourites. I picked it up on my last trip to Paris and I regret buying such a large quantity before tasting it first. It’s not a terrible blend, but I don’t think cinnamon and orange are two flavours that I enjoy together.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Orange, Rooibos
Oh blackcurrant, why you gottta smell so BAD?! D: D: D:
Thankfully I’ve made this in a travel mug, so I can put the lid on it and don’t have to smell it.
Ahh, that’s better. It’s a fairly light tea, I think I could have steeped it a little hotter. But it’s pretty nice! The blackcurrant-peach flavour is really nice, and delicate at this point as it’s in my travel mug. I’m quite enjoying this.
Thanks so much, uhh, tea fren. :) (MissB maybe? I got it when I visited Sil.)
Without going and actually looking at the bag… I think this is the tea that I have from MissB – thanks! My initial impression was of a coconut/butterscotch white, one of those teas that many companies seem to have (e.g. Butterscotch Potion, Dream, etc.). However, this also contains blueberries, which is an interesting twist, and although the white tea and coconut are reminiscent of the butterscotch teas, it does seem somewhat different. Another case of overleafing though (I really need to relocate my measuring spoons back to the tea area), so it was a touch strong, but enjoyable enough. Very coconutty, but light. I’ll have to pay a bit more attention for the blueberry next time.
Whoa, this is Hibiscus City. Perhaps I would have had better luck trying this iced or cold brewed but hot, I can’t taste anything else in here other than an underlying musty note. Unfortunately, I don’t detect any pineapple or mango.
Thanks to MissB for the sample! It’s great to be able to try these.
Blueberry and coconut are two of my favourite things, so in theory, this should be a winner. However, I’m personally finding the base a little too bitter, plus no blueberry. The coconut is there but it’s not? It doesn’t taste like fresh coconut. I wouldn’t call it coconut flakes either. It’s more processed and broken down, if that makes any sense. While the steeped tea most definitely smells like pleasant coconut, the taste is not translating as such. With each sip, I get the processed coconut followed by the lingering bitterness of the base.
Thank you to the wonderful MissB for sharing this one with me! Remedy cafe has a bunch of these teas so I’ll probably try almost all of them that way.
Another one to try to thank Nicole for. :D This one was intriguing. Coconut and blueberry seem like a different combination. This is a very balanced blend though! With the dry leaf, I can only smell the coconut. So then I take a first sip and it’s surprisingly very juicy sweet blueberry with background notes of coconut (like the suntan lotion type, but I know that type of coconut won’t be getting old tasting anytime soon.) With the second steep, the blueberry sadly disappears and I’m left with stronger coconut. It’s almost like an Everlasting Gobstopper tea. The white tea itself is tough to taste under all these flavors. I can’t tell if the tea itself is buttery or it’s the coconut, but it’s tasty regardless. I wasn’t really paying attention to steeping parameters this time.
I enjoyed this iced. I can taste both blackcurrant and peach, which is a nice change of pace from one overwhelming flavor. Even if it is a good overwhelming. I didn’t get any wow factor here, but it was nice. I would only recommend being extremely careful not to oversteep – I brewed this at 160, normally only greens need to be that low for me, and it was still a bit bitter after three minutes.
Today I made a tea soda with this tea, which of course came from MissB. I found a bottle of sparkling water, and I need the bottle itself for carrying cold brewed tea to work, so a tea soda had to be made. Peach and black currant seemed like they would make a nice soda. It’s reasonably tasty, but could use… something. More sugar? Stronger tea? I dunno. The white tea is a bit strange in this too. Those hay flavors that white teas often have are quite strong here, and it doesn’t quite work in a soda. The peach and cassis are pretty nice, though. We’ll see how it turns out as a cold brew, I have a little left to try it.
Grabbed this at a Kusmi store in Paris, and thought it was Kusmi until I tried putting it into Steepster. Uh.. okay, so similar branding, different company? Got it.
The smell in the tin was divine, so I thought, why not, I’ll grab a tin… you can only buy a tin of this. Sadly, I couldn’t bring the tin home. Brewed up it’s okay, but I want more flavor to it. It’s really, really subtle. Might be lovely as an iced tea, like Sil suggested? It’s just that blueberry isn’t as yummy as I want it.
Fun fact: blueberries are called bleuets in Québec, but myrtilles in Belgium, France and Swizerland. This led to a heated debate between me and a Starbucks employee in Grenoble, France, trying to figure out just what those blue things were a the muffin.
1.5 tsp in 12 oz. water, 185F for three minutes.
Flavors: Blueberry, Coconut, Drying, Soap
Sipdown! Process of elimination makes me think that this was from Roswell Strange, so thanks! I had to add it to my spreadsheet just now, because I apparently missed writing down a bunch of teas from before… sigh…
Anyhow! This is really interesting. Pineapple + mint? I swear I’ve seen pineapple mint at the garden centres before, but haven’t ever tried it, nor do I know if it actually tastes like pineapple + mint, or whether it’s called that for a different reason. Either way, it kind of works in this tea. The mint is subtle and tastes like fresh mint as opposed to peppermint (which is good!), and the pineapple is light and fruity. The green rooibos is not particularly distinguishable, which makes it work well here. Red rooibos or honeybush probably would have ruined this for me.
Overall, not a tea that would fall into my favourites, but a very interesting try, and not a tea I’ve had anything remotely like previously! Thanks Roswell!
This is a fun tea with many flavours and fragrances, good for the summer months. I do find it difficult to brew, as it becomes sour if you steep it for too long. The sour aftertaste is something I don’t like about the tea, sometimes, it even makes me more thirsty. Despite this, it’s a unique and fresh tea, a good companion when lounging in the sun.
In general I ‘lov’ this brand! I finished this tea in a record time. For me, this was the perfect black tea throughout the winter months. It is strong and therefore a good morning tea, as it helps wake me up. You can taste hints of red fruits, although, the flavouring is very subtle. In my opinion, the balance between the slight fruity flavours and the black tea leaves is perfect.
Another from MissB This one smelled like it’s name but the taste wasn’t one that i cared for until it was almost completely cooled. Warm it fell flat, but cooled it was a really subtle blueberry coconut tea. Smooth and quite refreshing. No need to keep this in my cupboard but warm brewed then cooled is the way to go with then one imo. Not sure if a straight cole brew would work, but someone should try haha
Another from MissB that i had today. This is a really nice peach, blackcurrant tea. I’ve been sick of “peach” teas for the last while but the addition of the blackcurrant to this one makes is a really pleasant cup that isn’t just PEACH. This was my favourite of the two lov organic’s i had today from missb :) Thanks as always!
I really, really like this, however I’m having a hard time describing it. It smells like a hot, tart grapefruit and tastes more like a sour orange, or sweet grapefruit, or a bunch of citrus with a hint of floral that I just can’t place. It’s more robust than say a juice… I’m really perplexed and need to review the ingredient list. Regardless, it’s refreshing and I can easily drink this often.
Flavors: Citrus, Grapefruit, Orange, Sweet, Tart
Hm. Loved this in Europe, not so much at home. Perhaps brewed at too low of a temperature? (I let the water sit a bit before using it). Took quite a bit of sweetener to get the peach to pop this time around, and even then, it was really drying. Hm.
Flavors: Drying, Peach
Grabbed at Kusmi, had no idea it was a different company until I tried to put it in the database. It smelled like heaven at the store – sweet, sweet peach and apricot. Flavor wise, it’s a sweet peach mostly with blackcurrant in the background, and an aftertaste of apricot. Light yet creamy… Wow.
Flavors: Apricot, Black Currant, Creamy, Peach
Backlog- The thing I remember the most about this tea was the cinnamon was not overpowering. I like cinnamon but I’m not one of those cinnamon lovers. I don’t remember getting any orange from this tea and that was a bit disappointing. It seemed to be a pretty pleasant rooibos tea but lacked something that would make it stand out.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Rooibos
Tried out this sample today ( from CameronB) when I needed less caffeine. There are times when I am just so happy to stick a teabag in a cup and add boiling water.
I wasn’t expecting much from this tea. Most fruit teas in my experience have hibiscus and I really do not like hibiscus. When I looked at the tea bag I couldn’t see very much hibiscus so I was hopeful. My first sniff of the tea was mostly peaches but I could pick up a bit of the pineapple and mango after awhile. I really quite enjoyed this tea. The hibiscus was so light it actually enhanced the fruit instead of overpowering it. It was an enjoyable cup.
Flavors: Hibiscus, Mango, Peach, Pineapple
I don’t know how I can ever remember all these Lov names for their teas. They all seem to sound alike after awhile although their tea packaging is cute.
This one is a mild herbal chai blend. Definitely strong on the anise/Fennel flavour. The other spices are not too strong and it was a pretty pleasant tea. Even though I don’t hate anise/licorice it’s just not my thing when it comes to tea but I’m glad I got a chance to try this tea.
Flavors: Anise, Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Fennel, Licorice, Spices
Enjoying this tea this evening. This was a sample from CameronB.
I like how each tea has it’s own special colour on the package for the tea bag. This one was a dark French blue. It seemed this tea would appeal to me since I like mint and lemon.
It’s definitely mint and verbena with the verbena being the stronger of the two. To me verbena isn’t quite lemon though. It has it’s own special flavour that comes across as a bit medicine flavour to me. I guess I’m just not liking the verbena that much but I can appreciate that this is a nice herbal blend with no artificial flavouring. It would definitely appeal to those who love verbena. Glad I got the chance to try it!
