I normally harbor disdain for rooibos teas (I think they taste too medicinal) but this is the second rooibos that I’ve actually enjoyed! We visit Wegman’s about every 3-4 months, and on our recent visit, the Blood Orange Tisane won for best scent. I’m huffing my bag as we speak… it’s a delightful bouquet of freshly peeled oranges. Very lush and tropical. The tea has lemongrass and rosehips, which gives it a bit of tartness without making you think you’re drinking watered-down orange juice. A winner!
Pretty much all silver needle teas that I’ve drank have a hay-like scent and flavour profile and this tea isn’t an exception. However, I’m not getting the sweet-hay flavour as strongly as I’ve tasted it in other teas – like LeafSpa’s Silver Needle. This tea is calmer and mellower and content to tickle the taste buds with the flavour rather than hit them with a sledge hammer. The tea has a really smooth body and the flavour tappers off into something that’s almost buttery in nature.
This is a delicious tea. It’s got great acidity without being over-the-top with it. Very refreshing in that regard. The orange notes are very present, but not overwhelming like so many fruit teas that smell like scented candles. The tea mellows with multiple steepings.
Very, very nice. Would drink every day and twice on Sunday.
The smell of this tea is absolutely divine. The taste is great as well—a very solid Sencha. Combined with the calming taste and (especially!) smell of Lavender, this is a great night-time blend. It has a very tranquil taste, but it maintains the slight bitter kick that’s common with Senchas.
If you’re a fan of Lapsang Souchong, this is a fine choice. Unfortunately, I’m not. This has a strong (very strong, I mean super-strong) smoky aroma, and as is indicative of all Lapsangs, it tastes much like I imagine licking a charcoal grill would taste like. If that’s your thing, by all means, go for it.
Side note: Combined with some more fruity flavors, however, this could be pretty interesting.
This tea isn’t nearly as flavorful as you would expect. It’s without a doubt the best smelling tea in the universe, however. It smells exactly like warm cinnamon buns. Unfortunately, the tea itself tastes a little boring and bland. I’ve found that if you make sure to use hot water and let it steep for almost 6 minutes, and then sweeten it with honey, it really enhances the tea and brings it above and beyond what it would be normally.
In short: Use 205F water, steep for almost 6 minutes, and sweeten with honey. Otherwise, a little bland, but smells fantastic.
A fine Lapsang with a very smoky aroma and smooth lingering finish. Might be a little off-putting for those who are still getting used to the taste of Lapsang, but a good standard to have for an everyday drink. Would be a welcome addition to pep up a black tea that needs a little more flavour, like a basic English Breakfast or Irish Breakfast blend or even a medium-bodied Assam.
