Very smooth and wonderful fruity flavor without being overly sweet. The pineapple and strawberry flavors are just barely peeking through for a great hint of sweet goodness. Steeped for 4-5 mins, but I think I may have used too little tea so it is a little weaker than I would expect (should have used more tea or steeped a couple minutes longer). Also, as a side note that may have affected my tasting, I had a handful of rainbow nerds shortly before my cup of tea…interesting way to approach a fruity tea tasting :)
It tastes pretty much exactly how the name describes it, like almond cookies. Really distinct almond and coconut flavors. Good, not as good as other almond and/or coconut flavored teas I’ve had, but good. The tea is a little watery, but I am starting to think that most of the teas from Subtle Tea are a little on the watery side. That was a little surprising for me, especially since I steeped it for 7+ minutes. Nevertheless, still enjoyable.
The black tea is not very overwhelming for a morning tea, a subtle tea (no pun intended) flavor. The fruity flavor is a little more than I would expect for this type of tea, but a nice surprise. I added a decent helping of honey to sweeten it up a bit and it adds a nice depth to the flavor while taking off a little of the bite of the black tea.
The peach hits you first followed closely by the lemon with a hint of apricot. I have left the tea bag in so its been steeping for a while (about 15 mins) to try and keep bringing out the fruity flavor. This has made the smoother more simple flavor of the tea much more strong and potent. Also added a little honey to keep bringing out the variety of fruity flavors, adding a trace of sugary sweetness to an already sweet tea. After all its a nice and smooth tea that is still able to stand up on the strength of its own flavors.
At first, the aroma is very pungent and the deep chocolate smells emanate strongly from the dark colored liquor. I added a little milk and honey to soften the kick of the black tea flavor. Upon tasting I was definitely surprised, but a little disappointed. The chocolate hits you hard and fast but its more of a harsh malty chocolate flavor than a smooth milky chocolate flavor. I can maybe get a hint of the strawberry in the aftertaste and the vanilla softens the blow of the chocolate, but the chocolate remains king. Its quite powerful and lingers even after you have finished the sip. I actually found this aftertaste to be the truest chocolate flavor and most enjoyable of the tea. Overall it was a decent experience, but being that I prefer softer more fruity teas and blends, I don’t think I would come back to this. But if you like darker richer blacks, this could be a nice treat for you.
A soft tea with a subtle golden liquor. The aroma is slightly earthy with a minor fruity touch to it. Its equally soft to drink, causing a nice calming effect. All of the alleged health benefits aside, it’s a nice relaxing tea. Not sure if its helping my stomach ache yet, but I do feel more relaxed.
This tea, with a deep purple (not the band), red liquor, has a wonderfully sweet fruity aroma that hits you as you bring the cup to your mouth. The first sip comes across strong and the more poignant pomegranate and apple flavors rise to the top of the pack. Then the middle of the tasting came across more bland, just like hot water, than anything else. But finally, the tea finished again with a kick of the more subtle fruity flavors like the raisins, carrots, and vanilla. What makes this tea interesting, possibly drawing me back for another tasting, is the variety of experience from each sip. The many different fruity flavors come out each in their own way at different times in every sip. Every time the tea hits my tongue seems like a slightly new and unique adventure, keeping me guessing and wanting more.
