10 Tasting Notes
Just a quick note to say…received this sample with my catalog this month. Felt like trying it out tonite. It is not bad, but not one of my favorites. I will drink it all b/c i wont waste a mug of tea. It has more of a chocolate smell to it that strawberry, and the smell is a lot stronger than the taste. At least i think so. I did not add sweetner to it b/c i was afraid with it being “chocolate” that it would be too sweet. Not the case. But i might just add some agave syrup here soon. Could be just a bit sweeter. Looking forward to seeing what others have to say!
~if you enjoy mintyness than this tea is for you :) You don’t get an over powering taste of it, but just give it a second…the burst of minty goodness follows shortly after your sip:) I prefer it this way b/c I am not a huge fan of mint flavored anything. But Tazo does a nice job of keeping it subtle but tasty!
ahhhh one of those days where I stayed up way too late the nite before. Woke up way too early this am and was busy ALL DAY LONG. After a hot shower and a tiny nap…this tea is a perfect way to ease the ache in my head and relax me for the rest of the day. With just a half a tsp of honey its the perfect flavor. And it does indeed have a hint of apple to it :)
I also own this tea. I wasnt sure whether or not I liked it at first. It does have a strong hint of either ginger or whatever it is. However…when i have one of those days, that is the tea i turn to. I bought it so i certainly am gonna drink it:) I also add agave to it. Actually if i ever add anything to my teas its either honey or agave. I try not to use sugar. I recommend agave. Its sweeter than sugar so u dont need a lot! Anyways…ill keep the tea. It could be psychological but i actually think it calms me down on a crazy day! :)
We have a little British Tea Shop here in the quiet corner in CT. They serve all kinds of tea from the leaf to the bag. This I tried once and was hooked. I put just the tiniest bit of honey on with it and its the perfect flavor to me. Believe it or not the added honey doesn’t make it un bearably sweet :)
