93 Tasting Notes
made a cup to calm me down before my test. i think it’s funny how chamomile smells bad but tastes good.
I really liked this tea the first time I had it. This time, the peach flavor was just as I remembered it, except I couldn’t taste the tea at all. It was like drinking peach flavoring in hot water. It still smells good sitting on my desk…
had another cup a couple nights ago. i didn’t realize that this “tea” is really just peppermint leaves. and it tastes so good! just left the teabag in the cup because of celestial seasonings no bag thing and my i-don’t-want-to-wash-a-spoon thing =P
have to say that this is a very calming tea, almost feels like chamomile. am thinking about getting a box/stealing another bag from my friend =D
tastes just like restaurant tea (they probably do actually use this since it’s so cheap). drinking a nice mugful while i try and finish hw.
had to add more tea because it wasn’t strong enough.
So I’ve discovered that I don’t really like orange teas, but aside from my dislike of the flavor, this tea wasn’t bad, so I gave it a fair rating. So that I could finish the cup, I stuck some hazelnut creamer in to cover the orange flavor. With that, it kinda reminded me of orange christmas cookies. I think everything reminds me of christmas these days, and how much I’d rather be home than taking finals….oh well. But yeah, it’s good to know what kinds of teas I don’t like =]
my first experience with rooibos outside of starbucks/CBTL. gotta say pretty yummy. i drank some plain – yummy – decided to add some vanilla creamer – also yummy and reminded me of a mix of a chai tea latte and vanilla rooibos tea latte from CBTL, my two favorites. perfect combination of sweet and spicy.
my staple tea. first time without creamer though. i never noticed before that there really isn’t much tea taste. maybe time to move on to a different staple? either way, i think i’ll keep taking it with creamer when i have it.
mm, this was really yummy. had it last night and made me feel like christmas. =] since it’s herbal and i didn’t brew it that long, the flavor was light but the mintyness was strong. i had it along with a few gingersnaps, great pairing.
I was worried that this would be a nasty fruit tea, but this might change my mind about fruit/tea combinations. The peach flavor is enough to be noticeable but not overwhelming and it makes the tea pleasantly sweet. I normally take my black tea with cream and sugar, but this one tastes great plain.
