Finishing off the last that I have of this – because it was a Russian Caravan, I sent most of this one to TeaEqualsBliss.
Although I must say that this is one of the better Russian Caravan teas that I’ve tried… the smokiness is mild. I don’t know if it’s because of the fruity flavors or what… but, other Russian Caravan teas that I’ve encountered (and I’ve only encountered a few) have been entirely too smoky for my liking. But this one is alright.
This is a surprisingly tasty blend. I was hesitant to try it (alright, I was downright apprehensive) because, well, when I think “Russian Caravan” I think Lapsang Souchong, and when I think Lapsang Souchong, I think TOO SMOKY for me.
But this isn’t. Yes, there is a smoky taste to this tea, but it does not overpower the cup. It is not too much. The fruit flavor with the smoky qualities of the Russian Caravan create a very unusual yet delicious tea.
The fruity taste offers a bit of sweetness (which I’ve enhanced with a drizzle of honey) and somehow, it offers a strange yet complementary taste to the smoky flavor. I like this very much.
CLEARANCE BOX TEA 4/20:
Made a gallon of this and have drank 48oz of it today. The raw leaf smells mostly of a sweeter black tea w/ faint hints of artifical orange and cinnamon notes.
7TB plus 1tsp tea
8oz just below boiling water
120oz cold water
Well this is definitely one tea you don’t need to worry about the cinnamon getting bratty. While stronger than the orange slightly, both are over powered by the sweet black tea base. I was going to suggest an Orange Mayan Chocolate Chai, but the flavors have got to be stronger.
Backlogging from Saturday Morning. This was alright as far as a mellow apple flavor is concerned but didn’t quite understand the brandied part and the black tea was a tad weak on the verge of turning a little bitter which could have been human error, but…just something I picked up on. Whereas this didn’t taste bad I was left wanting.
So far my least fave of the Cran paired ones from Zoom-Teas. This smells funky…almost like beef jerky or tofurky jerky (since I am a vegetarian and all) and the taste slightly resembles cran but not so much grape but the two of them together makes this the more bitter of the the crans and leaves me with slight cotton mouth. I could finish the cup but I’m not really diggin’ to be honest. This review prob sounds worse than I mean for it to be…it’s not terrible but not as good as the other Cran pairings that they offer.
It’s Cranberry, no…it’s peach…no…it’s Cranberry! NO – it’s Peach…it’s Cran-Peach! Every bit of Cran-Peach, actually. This is good hot and cold. I think the flavors are bolder the colder it gets but either hot or cold is a nice cup. For those of you wondering about all of my Cran-Pairings from Zoom-Teas…well, I would say this one is probably more bitter than the other cran pairing teas so far. And I don’t mean bitter as in bad…I mean that natural bitter-cranberry flavor. I have found that the others are not that cran-bitter…but this one is probably more so than the others I have tried so far. Honestly, I like the bitterness to the cran here…it seems to work well with the peach! YUM!
FRANK…did someone get a little CRAN-Happy??? LOL – I see LOTS of CRAN with other things in this slew of tea Anne and I went half-zee’s on…lol…that’s ok…because I like CRAN!
The CRAN in this is calmed down by the raspberry and it works well. It’s not overly bitter or overly sweet or even overly loud or overly flavored. How’s that for being redundant? Sorry…I’ve been in a really nerdy mood for 2 days now and it’s not letting up!
Regardless…this is a nice flavored black…nom, nom.
This one was a rollercoaster for me! First…it DOES smell like Champagne. At first that excited me but then I wasn’t so sure – mostly because of the dryness after-smell to it. BUT…then I tasted it! WOW! It’s incredibly mouthwatering!!!! Juicy. The taste of this tea is yummy. And I really can’t complain about the aroma because it DOES smell like Champagne…I just got a little bit of funkiness to it, I guess. All-and-all this is tasty. Clever little ditty!
