The citrus adds something unique to this chai. It makes the spices taste a little softer and leaves a pleasant aftertaste.
Solid cinnamon flavor, but a bit on the weak side even though I brewed it longer than 5 minutes.
I don’t know what in it made it so delicious, but I thought it was fantastic from the first sip to the bottom of the cup.
Accidentally let this one get cold, but it was a lot better cold! Definitely good for an iced tea.
Tasted a lot of peppermint and not much Darjeeling, but it was refreshing and yummy.
I had a cup of this yesterday and am backlogging…it was nice! See my other notes on this tea!
It’s not tasting as bark-like this time ‘round, but there’s still a tannin-like taste at the start of each sip that I’m not fond of. It trails off into something that’s a bit greener and smoother, but I’m still having trouble picking up that milky/buttery quality that milk oolongs are supposed to have.
There was an interesting sweetly floral scent that wafted up from my mug while this tea was steeping.
I was full of anticipation over the chance to taste this tea – after all it was another milk oolong that is officially my “Bestest T Evar!”. This tea is….not it. Wait, don’t leave yet! It isn’t a bad tea – I think I might be holding it up to standards that are too high – the milk oolong I had from The O DOR was a $80/100g tea after all!
It has a bit of a harshly cooked, tannin-y, and slightly bark-like astringency to it that I’m not hugely fond of. It definitely tastes more like a dark, roasted oolong than a green oolong to my palate. Interestingly, one way in which it is similar to the The O DOR oolong is that drinking the tea with something sweet helps bring out the smooth, milky quality of the tea. It isn’t the “bursting with honeyed cream” flavour of the latter, but it tastes much smoother and develops a mildly sweet tone, though it can’t seem to completely escape that bark-like tannic taste.
The resteep (@ 4:45) is a bit less harsh and a bit more ‘green’ in taste but overall it’s noticeably weaker.
A gift from TeaEqualsBliss, whose tasting note I’m going to echo. It’s citrus and mate. Nothing more, nothing less. And that’s about it
Finishing up a cup of this now. I keep forgetting to try this iced…soon…very, very soon!
Smooth with a little woodsiness at the end of the sip. Ooooooooo…LONG….
Not sure HOW I did it…but I seemed to get the perfect steep this time around…shouldn’t paid more attention while infusing and lightened up on the multitasking, eh!? LOL
Backlogging…finished this up the other night and forgot to log and take out of my cupboard
I grabbed a samples-worth from the TTB and almost forgot about it because I put it in a KUSMI left-over tin LOL – anyhow…I am drinking this now. First I must say that I couldn’t find it on the Subtle Tea Website so I don’t have the info or pic for it BUT it’s a neat looking blend. It has chunks of spices and pumpkin and lil sugar-orange candy looking things in the blend. MOST Spiced Pumpkin Tea scare me. This one isn’t bad at all! It’s Medium Brown in Color…it smells just like pumpkin spice. The taste is somewhat subtle but somewhat bold if that makes sense. I guess I am jazzed about this tea because they don’t overdue it with the spices! You can still taste the black tea and you can also taste the flavors…it blends really well. This is a Pumpkin Spice I can deal with :)
Finishing up my stash of this lovely number today.
It’s more minty than before with less chocolate…just a slight hint of chocolate…regardless it’s a good cuppa…sorry to see it go!
My first tea from The Traveling Teabox!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I tried this one first because you could smell it the minute you opened the box :) Cinnamon, cinnamon, cinnamon!!! When you open the tea package, you can see great big pieces of cinnamon bark, and wee pumpkins made of sugar!
It brewed up into a nice medium bodied tea. The first sip was great! Really flavorful and spicy and strongly flavored of pumpkin spice. By the second sip I started to think of the flavored coffees that were popular in the early 1990s. By the third sip I started thinking of the super heavily scented candles!! I was then convinced I was drinking a candle and found the tea overwhelmingly artificially flavored. It was just Too Much.
But! If you like flavored coffee, you just might like this one! It is nestled back in the Traveling Teabox ready for more tastings from Steepsterites!
Cup was initially quite good but I’m getting a bit of an aftertaste with it today…can’t really pin point what the aftertaste tastes like tho…hum…
I’m getting mostly mint and black tea today…still nice tho. Only have one more serving left after this…sigh…it will be missed…
I tried this again today…lemon and lime and green tea…yes…it’s tad better than I remember it…plus 2 points on my rating…
I’m finishing up my lil bit left and sending a sample to a friend. I really like this tea and hope to make a purchase with the company sometime down the road.
eeeeh. Not so sure.
Why? Well, it tastes like pure Hazelnut Oil or flavoring. Bleh. Infusing for 4 mins. I tried a 2nd time for half the time…and it was still Hazelnut with water tasting. Tastes and smells like it. Coloring is a pale yellowish color.
Not for me. Might be interesting to use as a flavored broth, however…just a thought.
Citrus Mate – is Citrus Mate – is Citrus Mate – very normal tasting in every way. Not bad…just…normal.
Not bad. Smooth with a little bark-like taste as an undertaste then ends with a sweetness. Interesting.
