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.
It’s “Green Chai,” but I’m not sure this is quite a Chai or a Green; with their combination, the characteristics of each seem to wither. It’s a bit of a strange mix—rose petals, nuts, vanilla? It doesn’t seem so ‘chai’ or too green to me.
The tea’s aroma is very sweet—I think it’s the cinnamon and vanilla coming out. As a tea, it’s quite flavourful; a hint of green with a lot of flavour. I’d recommend drinking it not if you want something mellow, but if you’re looking for a dessert tea. I can also enjoy it when I’m looking for a bright, flavourful break from my morning black teas.
This isn’t very high-quality tea; my loose leaves range in size from small what-appear-to-be shredded leaves, to a semi-large half-shredded leaf, to quite a number of sticks and twigs, to a few soft buds—all combined with several small chunks of dried strawberries. I bought this when I was much newer to tea, when I didn’t yet know how to visually identify the characteristics of a quality white tea.
Regardless, I give it a try. The liquor brews to a light gold/amber colour, and the aroma is strong and fruity, filled with hints of berries after a 4-minute steeping. The taste is not nearly as sweet as its scent, thank goodness—it has a hint of strawberry, but its presence is not overbearing, sitting rather equally and in tandem with the taste of the white tea.
While not high-quality white tea, I quite enjoy this tea in the morning to ease me into my work day. It’s mellow, soft, and just slightly fruity, but not so perky that it’s jolting. I’ll drink this batch and possibly consider buying it again—with some higher quality leaves.
