An absolutely horrible name for a tea… but it tastes great!
I say horrible name because it gives the assumption that oolongs are used for weight loss. Simply put, there is no proof of this. End of discussion.
However, the tea itself tastes quite smooth. There is just enough orange flavor and it isn’t overpowering. My 2oz. sample is almost gone. The leaves are large and open up a lot, so make sure to give them a lot of room
I’m just about out of this bag! I have been having a pot at least once a day. I don’t know why, but it’s not tasting as sweet as my first few cups. I’m tasting more of the rooibos than the coconut/sweetness as before. Still good!
Another sample from Rachel!!
Glancing through the tasting notes, I can’t help but think I’m missing something. It tastes…like rooibos. Plain, un-flavored rooibos. If I really try, it’s kinda sweet…but still more like plain rooibos to me.
This Teas Etc. brew (Cold Comfort) is very tasty. I have a bit of a cold today, so I will be able to judge its medicinal properties and let you know. I carry this tea at the Curious Garden if/when you’re under the weather.
I have been taking this to work with me for the last week and a half. It’s a great “wake the heck up and be productive” tea.
As far as taste, it is smokier and more astringent than a Ceylon tea, but it is not too bold. It’s fine with nothing added to it. I’m sure it could stand up to milk, but why bother?
JacquelineM sent me a little tin of this to try…thank you so much!!
It’s almost too pretty to brew. This is full of rose petals! Has a lovely rose and earl grey scent, with just a hint of jasmine.
In the brewed cup, though, that hint of jasmine becomes a whole heap o’ jasmine. There’s still some rose, and bergamot at the end of the sip, but there’s a whole heck of a lot of jasmine going on. And I’m not quite sure how I feel about that. See, me and jasmine…sometimes we just can’t be in the same room, and other days we’re best friends. Kind of like tweenage girls.
As it cools, there’s less up-front jasmine and more rose; bergamot is still playing the final fiddle. I’m thinking this is an Earl that’s just not for me. I’ll try it out again at a lower steep and see what happens.
Too much Ginger and not enough lemon but not a terrible taste. Probably not one I would purchase again tho.SIPDOWN!!!!
A very smooth oolong. Fruity, but not citrus. More flavor as it cooled, but I could not detect the chocolate.
Okay, but I still like Coconut Custard more! The dry leaf has almost a tangy yogurt smell. It reminded me a lot of some sweet yogurt drink I had when I was younger. When steeped, there is a bit of a floral scent. This tea is just alright. A tiny bit drying after you swallow. It’s sweet, but I don’t really taste individual honey or vanilla.
The Final Sipdown: Day 14
Decupboarding Total: 28
I slacked yesterday and today with The Final Sipdown but honestly? I’ve been too busy cooking, eating and napping to worry much about what teas to finish off. However, tomorrow is a new day and I’m back on The Final Sipdown wagon. To show my determination to decupboard, I’ve finished off this not-tea tonight.
I went a little heavy on the leaf just to finish this off and the smell is even more rooibos-y than normal. The taste isn’t as bad as the smell though, so it ends up drinkable and a little orange-y. But I’m still not that hot on this one. Thankfully it’s gone.
This is probably my new favorite rooibos! I love rooibos and I love sweet dessert teas… what a perfect combination this is! I don’t detect something that is pure coconut.. I’m just getting a creamy, almost honey-like sweetness instead. This is so smooth! The perfect balance between rooibos and sweetness. I don’t know how, but it’s quickly soared to the top of my list. Delicious! I won’t ever go without this blend in my cupboard.
I liked it! It’s citrusy in all kinds of good ways, but if I didn’t see the package, I don’t know if I would have gotten to grapefruit. But, that’s not a bad thing. It was really nice plain, without sugar. Sugar, ice… both… I could see that working well with this.
I didn’t think it was remotely like freshly picked grapefruit. But it’s citrus in a way that’s unexpected and different. For that, it deserves a try.
I had but a single serving sample of this tea from Teas Etc. I have delayed consuming it until my desire for a nice green tea was just right. It was worth it. This is a delightful tea, very smooth and pleasant. Great for these chilly afternoon wet-yuck days. It has now gone, but will be remembered in a future order.
I moved away from black teas during the summer. Their flavor just no longer been interesting. But lately, I have a very nice Earl Grey, and this very nice Assam. Maybe it was the teas. Maybe it was the heat. Maybe it was Me.
But this is a very smooth, subtly favored Assam. I am surprised, and delighted.
This is so SWEET and to bring the honey and vanilla out more I added a bit of Agave and wow did they ever come out. However, next time I will probably have it straight or maybe just a tiny bit of tea honey. Nevertheless, it is absolutely as described and will not disappoint. Can’t believe I was the first to log this one either.
Not bad but had a taste in there I couldn’t identify. It wasn’t a bad taste but just couldn’t figure it out. Otherwise the rose was wonderful and most definitely present. I love rose so to me it may never be considered overwhelming but to those on the cusp it may be a bit much. I am not sure if I would purchase it but I am also not sure if I wouldn’t purchase it. This one is very much an in the mood tea.
Finished this from my stash today…had two cups/infusions…this will be missed…
This is byfar the truest honeydew flavored tea, honeydew flavored anything, I have tried. A gold star to Teas Etc for hitting this right on the mark. The white tea is the perfect pairing for the light honeydew flavor. I enjoy the lightness this tea has.
I’m not exactly sure what I was thinking this morning when I made this tea. Normally I steep it for 4mins but today I did 2mins. OMG, what a lovely mistake. It’s sweet and creamy and malty and a tiny bit peppery hitting the tip of my tongue. The texture isn’t as stout as with a 4min steep but honestly? It doesn’t lose any of the flavor – in fact, I think the sweet notes might be more sparkly with this shorter steep time. Looks like I need to turn my brain off more often when making tea.
This is my first of cup of tea each day. It is bold and full-flavored and a perfect start to cold weather mornings! The first time I had it, I couldn’t stop thinking about it and just had to have more. I now purchase it a pound at a time! :-)
I finally got this after waiting months for it to be back in stock, I really wanted this to be as good as everyone else raved about. Unfortunately, drinking it straight it tastes like just a plain sweet rooibos and only when I add agave (I have to add stuff) do I even get a hint of coconut. It maybe personal preference, may be that the re-blend isn’t as good as the original. I just don’t know. All I can say is that I was disappointed and hope that it wasn’t my expectations that caused this. I gave it a higher score just in case it was me and because it was ok with agave. On the upside my 3 yr old enjoys it with honey.
This is a sample that came with my order and it was very reminiscent of a mild sweet tart. It was very interesting, my husband liked it more than me but I am glad I tried it.
drinking the last of this today, sweetened it is an excellent dessert pie, i mean drink
