Not bad, for what it is. The tea is nice and smooth, though as others have said, the vanilla isn’t extra strong. I may try it again with a little vanilla extract added. It gets pretty bitter in left in for a long time, though!
15 Tasting Notes
Pretty good with a little hot chocolate mix, but still tastes like a chocolate lip balm. I’ll drink it again, though. The hazelnut is a nice touch.
The taste is a little weak, even with sweetener, but gets better if the teabag is left in. The smell is really nice, though – citrus and cinnamon; very Christmasy!
A little fruitier than I was expecting; it doesn’t REALLY taste like Red Velvet cake, but it works fine as a dessert tea on its own. I added a little sweetener, sea salt, and hot chocolate mix to (hopefully) bring out the chocolatey taste elements; they do make it sweeter, at least.
I wasn’t expecting to like this tea – I’ve tried the CS Coconut Thai Chai and thought it was way too spicy. This one, however, wasn’t; the clove does stand out, but it’s also got a nice herbal sweetness – almost like a Yankee Candle, but I can’t place that scent. It tastes really Autumnal, but not especially like pumpkin pie or pecan pie or anything like that…just fallish spice flavors. The honey and vanilla don’t jump out to me, for some reason.
Very calming tea. Nice mellow, flowery taste.
Not bad – maybe it’s just my love for all things Autumn, but this was an impulse buy and I’m glad I got it. Just the smell was enough, like all the awesome things about fall in one cup. The taste was very, very clovey; the pumpkin may have been subtle, but I didn’t really pick up on it anywhere. It was more like a Fall-themed potpurri with a strong clove overtone. Still would buy again.
L-O-V-E this tea. Absolutely delicious. Definitely taste the vanilla, and a slight fruitiness (maybe the rooibos coming through?). Anyway, something that definitely made it sweet and really tasty. Added sweetener, and a little bit of sea salt(!) on the second try…the sweetener alone was a little bitter, but the sea salt brought out the sweetness and very slight creaminess. The flavor got better as it went along; I usually just leave my teabag in the cup, so it just got better.
Ugh. The taste was…okay at first, but the longer I left it in, the stronger it got. But not in that pleasant steep-for-a-long-time-to-let-the-flavor-intensify way. Just got really bitter and spicy toward the end to the point of my tongue and throat tingling. Definitely smelled like cinnamon and cider…The smell was actually overwhelming and made everything else smell like cinnamon apples once the box was opened. Didn’t really remind me of apple cider, actually (or even apple juice). Maybe I just left the bag in too long, so maybe I’ll give it another chance in the future with a shorter steeping time.
