This is a bagged tea that brews to a dark mahogany colour and smells of sweet potatoe, lemon and a hint of floral.
It tastes of sweet potato with a hint of floral, over malt. It is lightly astringent. The tea develops more malty, bitter tones as you drink down the cup and tastes mostly of citrus tones and malt, with very little sweetness. The tea is best drunk when hot as the flavour dissapears as it cools. However it does develop a nice potent dose of caffeine.
Woke up to a balmy minus 42 C this morning. Once I got to work I made myself a cup of cinnamon spice. Nothing better than cinnamon to warm you up from the inside out. This tea smells like hot tamales candy. The taste of the cinnamon, once steeped, is a little blunted, but there is still a sweet and spicey flavour to this Assam tea. This is one of my favorites year round, it is especially nice on a day like today. Many more cups to come!
I was expecting this tea to taste like cranberry juice, but it doesn’t. It’s very tart and there are spices added to the cranberry flavour. I don’t enjoy it. Someone mentioned here that it has a vomit aftertaste and when I try to drink it I can’t help but notice it. It’s a little better iced with agave but I won’t repurchase it for sure.
This is one of my favorite go to teas when I am not feeling well. I love the strong ginger taste. I find the longer you steep it the spicier it tastes. The peach adds a hint freshness. I find this tea calming and relaxing and helps with indigestion. I buy this tea in a tea bag form as I do not drink it very often, so that it will last longer. Out of the many brands I have tried, the Presidents Choice is my favorite for this tea, and it is also on the cheaper side.
I’ve tried this on multiple occasions as a quick cup at work and have unfortunately found it to be weak, flavourless and unappetising. While it certainly smells alright prior to steeping; I found it didn’t translate when consuming and was slightly bitter with a bad aftertaste, which is a shame because I love a good apple cider / tea!
This was my first attempt of a chocolate flavoured tea. I was sceptical at first because I always associated chocolate beverages to be thick and creamy and was unsure if I would like the texture and taste of chocolate in a tea form.
to be honest, I don’t know what this taste like. It wasn’t chocolate, and defiantly wasn’t chai. Its tasted like the bottom of a hot chocolate with the chalky powder on the bottom and someone stuck a cinnamon stick in it. it was not pleasant and I wouldn’t punish anyone with this tea.
my sister found a way to drink this tea. Instead of drinking it hot, leave it to cool down or pop it in the fridge. add milk and sugar and it taste like a cinnamon hot chocolate.
It doesn’t have the rich, deep complexity as loose leaf, but it’s not bad for an inexpensive bagged tea. Initially I feared that I had over steeped this one, but the flavour was still mild-strong with not a hint of bitterness after over 10 mins. Neither the chocolate nor the mint are overpowering – it has a good balance.
There’s likely chocolate mint teas that are cleaner, crisper and superior to this. Still, for the price and the lack of bitterness, it makes for a nice, convenience, on-the-go tea.
