drank Swiss Apple by Tea Forte

I think this is my fave apple tea. I absolutely LOVE the spices in it. The cardamom and the clove is divine to me. This is my go to fall tea and the bonus is that it’s great for your skin!

drank Harvest Apple Spice by Tea Forte
13 tasting notes

This is fall in a cup. I like this with a lot of honey, really hot and in the morning. I don’t know why, but it’s also filling to me. I mostly get the apple, cinnamon, and rooibos (which I like) but the spice isn’t overwhelming to me. It’s definitely more dessert tasting to me.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Rooibos, Sugar

drank Belgian Mint by Tea Forte
13 tasting notes

This is good. I feel it’s kind of weak, but if you brew long enough and add an extra teaspoon with honey, it’s a good sub for real chocolate. It feels kind of decadent.

Flavors: Bark, Cocoa, Coffee, Mint, Nutty

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 7 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Apricot Amaretto by Tea Forte
1633 tasting notes

For Christmas, one of my not-tea people gave me a Tea Forte sampler box as a gift. I won’t say ‘no’ to tea and you can certainly do worse than Tea Forte. Three packages each of five individually wrapped servings. Really, I think this might have been two teaspoons in one “serving” but I used all of it anyway. This one is quite tasty. Plenty of apricot, something like marzipan flavor on a decent rooibos base. I expected worse!

drank Peach Brulée by Tea Forte
188 tasting notes

This was pretty sweet. After having oolongs for awhile, the sweetness in this made them seem downright savory (which they aren’t really). The peach isn’t really prominent though. There is a certain creaminess to it, which is where I suppose the brulee part comes in. I like it, but it’s definitely a dessert tea for me. I probably won’t be reaching for this tea often.

drank Blueberry Merlot by Tea Forte

Nice. Nice. Enjoy the blueberry flavor. Reminds me of a fruitier version of an icewine tea. Also very enjoyable cold.

Sounds like a delicious choice

drank Chocolate Rose by Tea Forte
2705 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.

Preparation
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
2705 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
