Simply wonderful! Taste like its name sake yet a lovely light oolong comes through perfectly!

Have I logged this yet? Can’t remember…
Anywho, I added a little honey to the steeper while this was brewing, just to further bring out the appleness a bit more than my first cup, and HOLEY TEANESS! This is amazing iced with that bit of honey. Will definitely be a re-order for summer. Yummo!!
Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea.
Oh my this is good. I think that this might be the first chocolate mint tisane that I’ve seen that is just cacao nibs and peppermint… most of them are rooibos and/or honeybush blends in addition to the chocolate and peppermint. I like that this is just cacao and mint … the flavors taste stronger, purer and just plain better.
Sweet, creamy chocolate + crisp, cool peppermint. Need I say more?

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea. I am enjoying it!
This tea tastes best after it’s had a few moments to cool. It gets even better after its completely cooled (as in iced tea!) The berry flavor intensifies as the temperature of the cup drops. When very hot, the berry flavor is really only strongly noticeable in the aftertaste. After cooling a few moments, the berry flavor comes through loud and clear and is indeed a berry BOMB!
But as an iced tea, it really shines. Sweet, berry flavor. I taste each of the flavors – the strawberry, blueberry and raspberry! – and it all tastes amazing. The black tea tastes to me like it is probably a Ceylon, as it is brisk and mellow, not overwhelmingly strong, but strong enough to stand on its own amid the bomb of berries.
Very good. Thanks again, my SororiTea Sister!
Decided to re-visit this one after buying ‘the History of tea’ by the heiss’ today, doing some short multiple steeps. 80oC steeps. Not overly scientific timings, mostly me counting in my head.
1st step 90 seconds – light, sweet. Getting hints of the nectarine as described above. A very pale green colour. Smells soft and sweet, hints of the vegetal taste I got before, but it comes out sweet instead of grassy.
2nd steep 100 seconds – a light green colour again. Slightly softer smell this time. And it’s a very sweet steep! Definitely getting the fruit sweetness. Lovely!
3rd steep – 120 seconds – a paler green again. A lighter taste than the previous steeps (won’t bother with a 4th), but still light and sweet.
I’ve really enjoyed this method of steeping with this tea, it’s brought out nicer flavours than a standard western steep. Upping my rating accordingly. It’s a lovely white, a real treat.
So even though I really enjoy white blends, I haven’t had any straight whites. So why not start with RHTB, given their excellent quality?
Scent: surprisingly vegetal. Haven’t smelled that before with whites. Hmm interesting!
Taste: still getting the grassiness in the first taste, but the taste of the back of the mouth is quite sweet. Further sips are intriguing, very tasty! Definitely coming back for more of this.
I hope the white tea/immunity thing is true though, have a little bit of a cough this morning. Hopefully it’s just me warming up after a cool night.
Seriously, what do they put in this? Rainbows and puppies and happiness? Its just so unbelievably awesome every time I have a cup, and can cope with a bit of a beating, like my desperately needs a good bi carb scrub Timolino, or some not quite perfect brewing temperature and timing. Stellar work, RHTB!
Having this iced. Gave it a good 6 mins so the flavours came through when cold. And they do, so raspberry-ee, so coconutty. And the white tea has this comforting, oddly warming sensation even when iced.
Just stunning. If you’ve never tried this, ORDER NOW! Seriously, international shipping be damned, it’s just sooo good.
Had a bad weekend, medically, spent most of it on the couch under a blanket going through series 6&7 of one tree hill. This one was made for me by the other half when he got home from work.
Dry: you can smell all the flavours quite strongly, but the raspberry is the most prominent. Very genuine scents too, clearly no additional flavours here.
Steeped: wow. In case your weren’t sure, there are raspberries in this tea! But not just any raspberries, freshly picked raspberries, with that strong, sweet smell. Holey moley.
Taste: more raspberries! Also getting the sweet. Creaminess of the chocolate and coconut is definitely there too, and there is a hint of the white tea base. The aftertaste has a punch of the fresh raspberries I can smell. Wow. This is a wonderful tea! A great pick for yesterday afternoon, definitely changed my mood!
This is the first taste of the first tea of the first order I’ve ever done from The Rabbit Hole. So, yknow, no pressure guys! The boyfriend chose this one as he likes Turkish delight and has picked up the habit of wanting to try all my teas before I do. So we’re sharing.
Dry scent: I could clearly smell both the rich chocolate and the rose. The BF said he thought it smelled exactly like Turkish delight.
Steeped smell: Turkish delight!
Taste: lighter than I was expecting. I let it steep for around 8 mins. It does taste like Turkish delight, the rose flavour is prominent. It is very enjoyable. The other half thinks it would be good iced, that will be the next review!
Edit: on reflection, I think it tastes exactly like proper Turkish delight, yknow, the pink blobby stuff from turkey. So 100points for authenticity, but the proper stuff has never been my favourite snack. Will keep having cups though, see if it grows on me!
Special Thanks to LiberTEAs I was able to try this one :)
Thus far I have been a fan of Rabbit Hole Tea Bar…let’s see if this one follows suit???
Ahhhhhhh! This is wonderfully smooth and incredibly sweet. It’s VERY clean tasting and a gentle free-flowing milk oolong flavor! This is a terrific Milk Oolong!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED :)
Tart! As in TART! Tart tarty tart tart!
But, as much as I tend to reject tart flavors, this isn’t so bad as far as tart teas go. There are other flavors besides the tart.
The tart comes from the hibiscus, as does the deep ruby-red color. The tisane also has a nice body to it that comes from the hibiscus. I only steeped it for five and a half minutes, so it didn’t come out syrupy the way hibiscus can do sometimes.
I can taste the cherry and the blueberry, and these flavors are especially noticeable in the background where I get this really nice, fruity note. And the coconut offers just a hint of sweetness in the background, along with a slight creamy taste that really smooths out the flavor overall.
I did need to add a bit of turbinado sugar to this to help soften the tartness a bit, but I didn’t add a lot, and it wasn’t bad without the sugar, it’s just a lot better with it. It’s still tart … but it has a sort of refreshing quality to it too.
I cannot express how much I HATE Bananas. BUT…I’m really TRYING to be open-minded here. BUT I still wanted to state that upfront…my hatred for nanners…anyhow…
This smells mostly of white tea…thankfully…
The taste is surprisingly sweet and not too banana-crazy! THANK the tea gods!!!! I can relate to Liberteas notes about it being comparable to banana bread. It IS creamy, too!
I don’t think this would have been the same with any other tea base. I’m so happy they used white tea!
As much as I can’t stand bananas – this flavored tea is NICE. Trust me when I say this is a HIGH rating and a positive review for this tea. If I were crazy for bananas I am sure it would be MUCH higher.
I have faced my fear for the day…sound the trumpets! :)
