so i had this tea when i was at the RBG (royal botanical gardens) tea house.
not too good, but good enough to try :) tasted like a black tea instead of vanilla. due to the fact i have no more, and the lack of taste/quality, i shall not be doing a full review. definitely not recommended to try, you’ll just be disappointed unless you are the kind of person who loves all tea they drink/try
Less leaves, and it is surprisingly chocolaty. I steeped it at fifteen seconds. It’s still a little strong for me, but better than it was last time. Overall, a malty, borderline chocolaty black tea with the rose, cardamom, and saffron in the background playing into a sweet cup. I’m half tempted to add cream since it is so strong. Sugar, however, would not do it justice.
Very sweet and creamy rosy black tea. I taste a little bit of the cardamom making the rose sweeter. A little bit on the astringent bitter side for me, but its a pretty delightful tea. It is pretty similar to Turkish coffee or even Turkish delight (though completely different nationalities). Thanks to Evol, I sampled it. Not sure if I’d keep some since it is a bit strong for me. Maybe less leaves next time.
Daily Cold Brew!
I was looking for something fruity in the box to try cold brewed and low and behold there was this both oddly specific and at the same time nondescript tea kickin’ around so I figured why not.
I had a really, really hard time placing the fruit flavour in this. At first I thought maybe some sort of strawberry (or other berry) and currant combo? Then I was thinking more on the stonefruit side of things. Turns out it’s passion fruit!? I mean, this was tasty and I guess looking back on it I sort of see that but it’s definitely not any sort of defined passion fruit flavour nor anything comparable to other passion fruit blends I’ve tried.
The base was pleasant enough; I’m gonna guess Ceylon black tea just ‘cause of the overall floral flavour and sort of mild/almost neutral malt sort of flavour that’s just barely present and mostly lends itself to be an non-intrusive canvas for the added flavours.
Nice enough to try; enjoyed the brew but overall I’m guessing will likely be forgettable.
EDIT: Apparently the base is some sort of Chinese black; curious what type because the profile is much like Ceylonese blacks – but ultimately doesn’t change my opinion of the tea.
The last remaining sample from my swap with Evol Ving Ness, thanks again, it was fun!
I enjoyed this fruity chai and I can see why it is called holiday blend. It would make a delicious latte during the Christmas season on a cold day wrapped up in a warm blanket. Maybe not my favourite during the spring/summer months but still good!
I was very surprised to find I actually enjoy this blend. Most peach teas taste artificial to me or are sickly sweet (stevia) but this one tasted natural and was not too sweet or overpowering. I could even taste the pleasant tea base.
I can taste several fruits, most notable stone fruits like apricot and peach. I also taste some other fruit, but I’m not sure what it is. They served my tea super hot (boiling) so I burnt my tongue and couldn’t taste as much. There is a bit of sweetness, like nectar and ripe fruit. I find this adds to the overall appeal.
I may try this iced some day, I think it would be fantastic served cold.
Flavors: Apricot, Fruity, Nectar, Peach, Stonefruits, Tea
Absolutely divine. Tasted just like those chocolate orange slices that you can get around Christmas time. Perfect with milk. It was good as a dessert tea. The chocolate was very strong and the orange was kind of like an afternote. It was very very nice.
Flavors: Chocolate, Citrus, Dark Chocolate, Milk, Orange
I really liked this one! The flavoring is the most genuine fruit flavoring I’ve ever tasted. I’m not sure which fruits are Brazilian, but this tasted like stone fruits and watermelon to me. Very sweet, but not cloyingly so. Very refreshing; must try it as an iced tea.
Flavors: Fruity, Melon, Stonefruits, Sweet
I drink this a lot, so I’m actually surprised I have not rated it. I read through a lot of reviews and thought I must have the wrong name, however when I checked the label I was indeed correct. Maybe it is my batch, but I do not taste flowers, citrus fruit, or bitter/tart flavours. My steeped liquid has always tasted mostly of basic rooibos-y rooibos (woody and sweet) with a unique undertone sort of like…bubblegum? It isn’t exactly like candy/sugary and also isn’t quite fruity or vanilla, I can not really describe it. Maybe it is because I am a HUGE rooibos fan, but I find it extremely pleasant. I was surprised to learn there is hibiscus in this tisane because I do not taste tart or floral.
I appreciate that this tea is impossible to over steep. I usually do three steeps and leave the teabag in the whole time. This also makes an amazing iced tea with a squeeze of lemon and some sugar. It also makes an awesome latte, although I usually drink mine hot and plain. I find it very versatile.
Flavors: Nectar, Rooibos, Sweet, Wood
I just don’t think rooibos holds flavorings as well as camellia sinensis leaves. That said, I did actually enjoy this one, despite the flavorings not being super strong. The chocolate was definitely the most elusive; it kind of cameo’d as a sweet note in the aftertaste. The mint was weak, too, but it was definitely there. I wanted more “truffle.”
It was just something nice to sip on while the wind howled outside.
I kind of agree with everyone else’s assessment of it— inoffensive, but not cupboard staple status. I prefer H & S’s Chocolate Mint offering, even though that one has a black tea base (and therefore caffeine).
Flavors: Mint, Rooibos, Sweet
Had this with a splash of skim. It accompanied a toasted plain bagel with veggie cream cheese, and I have to say, it was probably the best possible pairing I could have come up with yesterday morning. The toast notes in the tea worked really well with the toasted bread itself.
Chinese black teas are my favorite because they’re so smooth and non-astringent. This particular blend is half Chinese, half Indian, so it has those smooth characteristics I mentioned, plus a good firm bite of “pick-me-up” characteristic of Indian black teas. It’s been blended phenomenally and wakes me up like coffee does, but without the jitters and coffee breath.
This is easily my favorite loose breakfast tea. I love the orangey color and the rock-steadiness of it. A staple tea for sure!
Flavors: Baked Bread, Butter, Toast
I absolutely adore this one. It’s VERY bready, which makes it perfect as a breakfast tea. It has the smoothness of Chinese black tea with the robust flavor of Indian black tea. Steeps a gorgeous ruddy brown color and mixes famously with skim milk. Floral notes in addition to bread/ toast notes.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Butter, Floral, Toasty
Thank you for the sample Evol Ving Ness!
Rose isn’t generally a flavour that I enjoy in tea, but I like to try them now and again to see if my tastes have changed. Nope, I still don’t like rose. It is a perfectly good tea, just not for me. I’m glad to have tried my tastes again, so thanks for that Evol!
