drank Chocolate Rose by Tea Forte
2627 tasting notes

This tea is definitely not a winner…. dry leaf smells so promising but the tea itself has no real chocolate flavor to speak of, too much rose and a weird artificial after taste. This was improved somewhat by the addition of soymilk but I might throw away my remaining samples unless any of my followers want them.

Boiling 3 min, 15 sec

Bummer. I haven’t had any Tea Forte teas lately but I remember not being impressedwith their chocolate.

There aren’t too many chocolate teas I really like, but this was a bummer

Good lord that SMELL

Thankfully, the heavy rosemary smell didn’t translate to the taste, which was predominantly hibiscus with a hint of orange. Second steep got more rosemary. All in all, not impressed.

Flavors: Hibiscus, Tart

One of the most unfortunate and grave experiences in my life was putting this tea in my mouth. I dislike it greatly.

It takes a true “steepster” to be brutally honest sometimes and that’s exactly what you did here. Thanks for the honest review, it was quite refreshing.

Admittedly, this tastes rather like blueberries. It’s tart, rather than sweet, but the fruitiness comes through quite well. I think it could do with a little more sweetness, but otherwise, good.

drank Black Cherry by Tea Forte
2627 tasting notes

Part of the “Noir” gift set by Tea Forte – I think these were just repackaged things from their normal tea line. Nevertheless, if you’re going to try a bunch of new teas I think samples are the way to go. Teas are from the Jamguri tea garden in Northern India.

The dry leaf smells really bad here, medicinal and cough syrup-y. So I wasn’t really looking forward to trying the cup. I am finding this isn’t too bad, though the cherry flavor is pretty light. It’s only slightly cough syrup-y. Also this tea has licorice in it, so take note of that, licorice haters. :) I think this would be a nice one to try as an iced tea. And I do like the black tea base here. So overall it’s not bad.

I wonder if these were reformulated recently, but I am not going to create a new entry.

Another combo I never expected to work, but turned out amazingly.

The savoriness of the sage mixed with the subtle floral flavor of the tea and natural, smooth cinnamon makes for a shockingly good tea latte, or just as a hot tea. Cold less so, but this is the first Tea Forte product I can say I loved.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Sage

Smells lovely, but the taste isn’t that amazing.

The apple and cinnamon flavors are both very natural-tasting, but also very light. Not much else to say, it just didn’t leave a big impression on me.
