weird… could have sworn i rated this already. Ah well… i don’t mind this tea…but gingersnap it is not. This is more like a fruity tea with ginger in it…sort of. There’s a nutty taste to it as well, similar to the sweet almond cake that this company does as well. All in all not a bad tea but it’s not gingersnap – that wonderful delicious cookie that i love!
I think the best term to describe this tea is mellow. You get a definite scent of coconut while smelling the dry leaves. Once steeped, there’s more of a vegetal than coconut smell.
I’m not a huge green tea fan (although I prefer it over black any day), but I really enjoyed this one. The coconut gives it a nice creaminess and mouth feel, and the flavours blended really well. I don’t have a lot of this left, but I’ll enjoy what I have.
Right off the bat I liked the dry smell. It has a light, refreshing scent to it, but with a hint of a creamy undertone. Steeped, it still smells refreshingly of lemon, but I don’t really catch the creaminess.
It’s a nice, smooth, comforting tea. I taste the lemongrass, but it’s not astringent, and a hint of the pepper is there, but just enough to balance the rest of the ingredients. I like this one.
had this tonight…a decent cup but nothing spectacular.
So this is a sipdown…because even though i haven’t finished the sample bag i bought, I don’t want to. And i think this is gross enough that I won’t let anyone else get stuck with it. so there. blech.
I can understand why this tea is popular. I like that the floral notes aren’t really strong, so it really is more of a green cherry tea. However, as is often the case, the “weight” of the tea just isn’t enough for me. I love thick, full bodied delicious teas. I still think this is a nice tea but it’s nothing i need to pick up again. I do really like the cherry taste, so now i just need t find a cherry black tea :) or maybe a roasted oolong… stacy i’m looking at you! lol
Bumped the rating a bit but still not a tea I need to order again. It’s not really chocolatey but it is coffee like. Added a bit of cream and that made it tastier too :). Ah well, can’t love ’em all :)
New Years sip down! Yay for a new year of teas, old and new!
I’ve been drinking this one cold, and I like it just as much as when it was hot. Very refreshing.
so tired…. had this tonight on my way to/from “christmas” dinner with my other half’s extended family. it was a decent night though i’m a little tired and just want to curl up in bed. Got to hold the little one tonight (3 weeks old) so that was special.
as far as teas go…still delicious, though not as intense as my last go round with this one. still a bit left so i’ll see how the next time steeps up.
I’m not sure where I stand with this one. It’s definitely drinkable, but the raspberry taste seems very artificial to me. This is my first honeybush-based tea, so I’m not sure if it’s the honeybush making the tea naturally sweet, or if it’s the flavouring that’s added.
I’ll have to try it iced and see if it’s better that way.
This is my favourite tea from Steeped and Infused. I only got the 10g sample size during their sale a week ago, as I honestly didn’t expect to like it. Boy was I wrong. It has a nice, very delicate pear taste to it, and it smells great. In fact, I love to just smell it. I went back to the store and now have a bag of it in my cupboard. Who knew lapacho and calendula would taste so good together?
I had this tea for the first time last week and rushed back to the store to buy a bag before they closed (as of Dec 24th they’re online only until they find a new retail location). Very similar to David’s Tea’s Forever Nuts, but without any artificial flavouring added. I have no problem with beetroot being added to the mix. Better than hibiscus for colour, in my opinion.
I really enjoyed the taste, although I wouldn’t call it overly almond tasting. It smells great, too. I gave it a long steep.
Totally hard to believe this is a herbal infusion. It’s a damn fine tasty cup of almond cake. I could really see keeping this one around for when I need a hit of sweet cakes almond goodness. Especially since it’s a herbal infusion. Mmmmmm so tasty. Only down side? Th bright red colour of the tea totally messes with me since its almondey and cakes lol
woah man…so even though i knew this was the tea in my travel mug i was NOT expecting the creamy caramel that dropped into my mouth. Holy…this tea is…creamy..and caramel and sweet and yes it’s an oolong tea, but apparently flavoured oolongs don’t bother me nearly as much as plain old green oolongs. Roasted oolongs seem to be ok as well..but i digress.
This is a pretty damn tasty cup of tea if you’re looking for that caramel taste.
soooo comparing this with the other tea… man this one is even better! It’s more true to pear taste, though i have to say the smell leaves something to be desired. I’ll have to try this with a little cream at some point just to see what it’s like. this is pretty decent….yep.
oh man… this is totally delicious. Smells like pear…. tastes like pear. yeah i can get behind this one. I have another pear tea from the same company that i’m in the middle of steeping so that I can compare the two. I really think this would be totally delicious as an iced tea as well. There’s a bit of a tang before the creamy pear flavour kicks in but once it does it’s a pretty delicious cup of tea. The pear might be a little artificial but not in the way that makes you cringe from the fakeness of it.
I really want to try this cold now. This tastes like those blue raspberry freezies! I guess it’s artificial tasting but its so true in taste to things that are raspberry flavoured. I really think I can get behind this one :)
ok fine…ONE more tea… lol
not sure how i feel about this one. It’s fruity, but i’m not sure i can pinpoint this as being raspberry. It’s tasty though, so i’ll see if i can play with it and get more of a raspberry flavour out of it. I generally have trouble with whites, so that’s not shocking :)
Alright…i think? this is the last tea for the evening now that I’ve sent my parents off to bed and we can get ready for tomorrow’s festivities. I hoped for a bit more from this tea. It vaguely reminds me of frank’s chocomate, though that may just be because of the toasted mate. I think i may have to pass this on to someone else to try as it appears i’m not overly a fan of mate. However! I will try this again with milk or something added to it to see if that makes it a bit more creamy and delicious.
So I have to say…compared to Stacy’s maple pecan oolong, this one is nowhere near her take on maple. This tea does however remind me of one of Della Terra’s teas, though i can’t for the life of my place which one it is. Maybe i’ll be able to figure that one out tomorrow. While the maple is there, it’s just not as strong as I’d like it to be. A decent cup, but nothing I’d feel the need to reorder.
Oh man.. THIS is what i want Della Terra’s cafe vanilla to be. Such a good strong, solid vanilla creamy taste. I am really digging this as possibly being my go to vanilla tea. I’m going to have cafe vanilla after this just to make sure me memory isn’t failing me.
I had to guess on the steeping parameters for this once sine they haven’t listed it on their website. There’s something a little “off” about this tea as it is more like a cider than it is an apple pie. Still though, I’ll give it a few more chances since i’m not 100% sure how to best brew this. But for right now i’m looking for a bit more apple.
