232 Tasting Notes
Mmmm This was my take away tea the other day… ME WANT MORE!
This tea is on my: I will have to take a sample home and try again" list. I tried a small sample in store… He claimed it tasted not like tetley, but more like red rose (ouch) and I kinda agree. For all the hype this one fell incredibly flat for me! :(
I don’t know why the picture did not work.
This tea is defiantly better as a lemonade. Thank being said I don’t think this is a tea I would purchase again, it is rather acidic if I have had a strong black tea or coffee before this one.
But… the kids at work love it!
This is roasted so well, it tastes like coffee but without that terrible acid reflux, AND there is a distinct chocolate scent/flavour that gives this the potential for a yummy chocolate latte!!
There is a reason hibiscus is the first ingredient… BLECK! I wish I had some lemonade or fresh lemons, because that would fix this tea right up!
It smells so deliciously of caramel I was a little un-nerved that once iced all I could taste rooibos, although there is a distinct finish of caramel with each sip. I think this might be better hot with some steamed milk.
The kids at work had the last of this tea, it was worth sharing, they went nuts over it!
This is one I might actually enjoy and it might actually encourage me to go back for more, or maybe send my mother. (I’m still reeling from the service in the store, and my dirty decorative tea tins)
First steep was intense raspberry flavour, with a buttery finish that allude to thoughts of raspberry crepes.
Second steep… I think the water may have been too hot, but there was a slight astringency that I did not appriciate and the raspberry bits started to look tired (they were a blanched white, no more pretty red)
I might take the time, when I get home tomorrow to try this one again.
Buying this tomorrow at Tea Desire!
They did not have this in stock, so upset, and they only sell the boxes of these teas, and for an exorbitant price!!
Had this again tonight at White Spot, and I am so buying this tomorrow when I go to Tea Desire!
So let down, this tea will just have to be a special tea I have when I am out at White Spot or willing to walk to the Roost. (But I can live with that)
