So, this is technically the second time I’ve had this, but I can’t remember much about the first time, because I have been in a haze the last few weeks, and I didn’t really pay much attention to this tea. However, today I was determined to remember to be better about it, and make a note, since Shae was so kind in sharing this with me…as her first trade. :)
I definitely got spice, and your basic chai spice, it seemed to be balanced blend…and although I could not detect it immediately, I got a very nice warming coconut note at the end of the sip. So lovely.
I did not make this latte style, but I did brew a little extra and use milk at the end.
Today’s cup is sweet and milky and spiced with ginger. I steeped the tea in 4 ounces of water, then added 4 ounces of steaming milk that I had warmed with a spoon of honey. It’s a luxurious treat this Saturday morning.
This is a good tea, one that smells of ginger snaps and coconut. The deep, dark tea and the spices – it’s a welcome departure from the fruity hibiscus herbals I’ve been drinking this week. Having teas like this one reminds me of why I keep coming back to tea.
Flavors: Cookie, Ginger
This tea smells incredible. It’s all coconut and smells fresh and tropical. The dry mix is mostly tea – small, long, twisted black leaves. There are also small pieces of ginger and cinnamon bark. The aroma kind of reminds me of ginger snap cookies (the good, chewy kind), but I wouldn’t necessarily say that it smells strongly of ginger. The fragrance is sweeter.
The tea leaves must have soaked up quite a bit of water because I don’t have nearly as much in my cup now as I put in. The liquid is dark and a little murky. I smell more ginger now but still the coconut. The taste is mostly ginger, again like those ginger snaps. There is also a bit of tartness there, like the slight acidity of lemon. It doesn’t taste like lemon, but it does have some zip. I don’t taste the cardamom or the cinnamon really, but it’s nice to be able to experience a spice other than cinnamon every now and then. I’m having this cup with a banana muffin and the two are getting along together quite nicely.
8 ounces water + 200 degrees + 10 minutes
I smell more cinnamon this time around. This cup is light in color but still a little cloudy. It still has the sweet perfume. I’m not sure it’s worth the re-steep, but it does taste more spiced with the second cup.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Coconut, Cookie, Ginger, Spices, Sweet, Tart, Tropical
This is such a fun tea. It actually has miniature gummy bears in it! The fragrance is menthol and fruit. I can see lemongrass, hibiscus, and bits of fruit and flower petals. And gummy bears, of course! The color of the liquid is deep – a purplish red. It does smell like fruity gummy bears, but it has more of a berry flavor. It’s also a bit tart. Overall, this tea is fun but not terribly exciting taste-wise. I let it cool a bit on my desk and it’s not bad so this may be one to try later on ice.
Flavors: Berry, Candy, Fruity, Menthol, Tart
I love this. It’s all floral roses and strong, dark tea. It’s such a lovely combination. It actually reminds me of the Lebanese desserts my grandmother used to make growing up. Honey and cream make this a near perfect cup.
8 ounces water + 212 degrees + 10 minutes
I can still taste the rose, but it’s not as strong or as dark as the first cup. It’s definitely still satisfying though.
Flavors: Floral, Rose
This tea smells so wonderful. I just love the combination of strawberries and black tea. It reminds me of Teavana’s Strawberry Slender Puerh which is one of my favorites. Actually, probably my very favorite. It’s been a while since I’ve had this one, though I’m not sure why since I remember enjoying it before. The main difference I think between this one and the Strawberry Slender is the floral aspect. It tastes like rose water even though I don’t detect that in the aroma. The smell is all fruit and berries.
6 ounces water + 212 degrees + 10 minutes
Mmm. This cups is nice and sweet.

I let this one steep for several minutes, maybe as many as 20 minutes. The color of the liquid is a much lighter shade and the fruit bits mixed with the tea have swelled and plumped enough to distinguish them as stone fruits. I bit into one and it tasted of peach or maybe nectarine. The steeped tea still has some flavor but I’ll probably stop here since it may be getting a little weaker.
Flavors: Berries, Floral, Fruity, Rose, Stonefruits, Strawberry
This is one of three teas I ordered from Satori and the first I’ve had the opportunity to try. I brewed a full pot over the weekend to share with my brother who was over for a visit. He loved it and drank over half the pot on his own, but my husband didn’t really care for it. I thought it was really something special.
Aside from the tea itself, the dry mix includes bits of fruit and brightly colored pieces that look much like saffron. Red, orange, yellow – almost neon in color and very beautiful. The final cup is sweet and floral to taste and has a lingering flavor that brings to mind rosewater. Creamy and fragrant and somewhat exotic, this is an indulgent cup perfect for a cozy afternoon at home.
