This was absolutely delightful. The color is a breathtakingly beautiful hue – bright fuchsia – and it just smells so good. It’s fruity and sweet at first, with a mild bitter aftertaste. I put a smidge of honey in it, and it cut the bitterness a bit, but not so much that it didn’t have a zing to it. Very grateful I received this as a gift from one of my tea loving friends.
Tea #52 from HHTTB2
It looks like there’s red rooibos in here (and I’m 99% sure that’s what it is), settled at the botton of the baggie, but the ingredients say nothing of the sort. I didn’t get in my teaspoon, but just as a head’s up for the fellow anti-rooibos guild members.
Once steeped up, this smells strongly of berry and cocoa. And the taste is very much currant. The chocolate isn’t really pronounced, but does add an overall depth to the cup. There is definitely rooibos in this blend, because the medicinal taste is absolutely coming through in the latter part of the sip.
I don’t know if the rooibos in this sample baggie from SerendipiTea was a mistake or actually a part of the blend, but to me, it would be so much better without.
I didn’t realize I still had this tea, it wasn’t in my dedicated tea cupboard, instead I found it hidden behind my surplus flour while I was doing inventory on the kitchen. It may be due to age, but I wasn’t able to taste any of the apple or mango flavors that are suppose to be in this blend. It has been over a year since I’ve had any of this, so I can’t really remember how it originally tasted, but seeing as it was shoved to the back of a cabinet and forgotten I likely wasn’t overly impressed by it the last time I tried it.
I’m not going to rate this one, I’m pretty sure this tea is well over a year old, if not closer to two.
there are a lot of boring green teas out there. this is one of the good ones. no, it won’t blow you away, but it’s far above average. a lot of flavored green teas don’t have enough flavoring, and don’t use a high quality green tea. in this one, the apple and mango flavor is strong enough to enjoy it, and the green tea is sweet and grassy. it’s really interesting and enjoyable hot, and it’s really refreshing iced, so there you go!
any tea with chamomile, i expect to taste like chamomile and drink at bedtime. at bedtime, i want something sweet. the hibiscus in this is very tart! i also find it strange to drink a chamomile tea that is red in color, but that’s a very minor complaint. i think i would have liked the apple/mango/chamomile blend, without the hibiscus. tart chamomile is not a good thing. added sugar, but it just doesn’t work as a bedtime tea, and i don’t want chamomile in the morning, so there you go.
This is by far one of my favorite teas around. I got it in a subscription box and couldn’t wait to try it. The blend of chocolate, mint and vanilla were cozy and creamy. It was a wonderful dessert tea, but not so sweet that I didn’t want a second cup. This is definitely one I plan to keep around!!
This is a delightfully aromatic blend of Jasmine petals and Chinese Pouchong Green tea. I add a bit of Lemon, alongside a small amount of Agave Nectar and it’s a cup of pure heaven.
I generally drink SerendipiTea’s Jasmine Yin Hao, but the girl behind the counter at my favorite coffee/tea shop recommended I try this. Sorry to say that I didn’t care for this at all. The aroma and taste reminded me of stale Rice Krispies.
Tea #33 from Another Traveling Tea Box
It dawned on me that y’all are probably getting sick of me popping up on your dashboards so often. Fear not; I’m down to the last 10 or so samples from this box (that I wanted to try).
This would be a good night time/relaxation cup, or with honey. It’s very (VERY) dominantly chamomile, so if you don’t like the taste of it move along. If you do, this is pretty nice. There’s a subtle appley tartness hiding in the cup that adds a little interest and keeps it from putting me to bed. Otherwise not much of note here.
I’ve been putting this cup off for months now – it was one I received in the Amoda tasting box! I guess the description just never appealed to me.
And, I guess I wasn’t missing too much. It’s an interesting tea, but not one that I’ll miss. It’s about 80% jasmine oolong (with an emphasis on jasmine) while the earthy puerh notes linger on in the background. It makes me think of two siblings clamoring for attention, while one jumps up front with arms outstretched so the smaller one can’t get by.
Yep. That’s this tea.
i love this chai. i make a REALLY strong concentrate with lots of sugar, and then mix it 50/50 with hot or cold milk for the most amazing chai latte of your life. and it’s caffeine free so you can have it any time of day.
i really like chamomile. but i can’t tell a difference from one brand to another. if the blend says, “100% egyptian chamomile” then yeah, i’m going to like it. but seriously, it doesn’t matter what brand you get. they are all the same.
they say it is “award-winning” but don’t say who provided the award. i probably would NOT have given it an award, although, with that said, it’s an above-average chai blend. the quality is very high, with actual cardamom pods and well-balanced spices….none of the spices overpower any of the others. it’s a very nice chai. if i had to put my finger on it, i’d just say…it’s not different. it’s not memorable, it’s not unique in any way to make it stand out. but that’s okay, right? a lot of times, you just want…plain chai. and this is a good one. so there you go.
Pretty good more drinkable than Chaucer’s Cup it’s not as tart but could be better
Sipdown, me mateys!
While I like this tea, I’m finding there are other flavours I prefer. The vanilla, coconut and chocolate in this are very tasty, but it seems like “every” company puts coconut in their teas, and the flavour isn’t unique or distinct enough for me.
While I would not say no if it came to me in a treasure chest of sorts, it’s not a tea I will go out and restock. Tasty, but not essential. And if I have a craving for it, I can just go to the local cafe and get a pot to sip on while I sit there and play games or read.
I’m drinking it now as it’s a) a sipdown, b) old, and c) low in caffeine because there’s hardly any black tea in it.
I would like this a lot more if it wasn’t so TART. Monk’s Mead is better than this in my opinion.
I was a little worried about this blend … I knew I’d like the jasmine Pouchong, but, why did they add pu-erh to the blend? My thoughts when I read the description of this tea is that SerendipiTea ruined a perfectly good jasmine Pouchong by adding pu-erh to it. Yeah, that’s my former dislike for pu-erh coming back to haunt me yet again.
I like pu-erh now, I like pu-erh now, I like pu-erh now!
This is really quite good. I was surprised by how well I liked it. A nicely crafted tea from SerendipiTea and I’m sorry I doubted them.
The pu-erh is more of a background note here, adding some earthiness and some mellow sweetness to the creamy notes of the pouchong and the delicate notes of the jasmine. A really unique but certainly enjoyable blend. I like this one.
Who knew apple and jasmine can go together? The apple comes through first then the jasmine but they don’t overpower each other. A good apple tea
