90 Tasting Notes
This smells exactly like cotton candy in the bag.. omg… The cotton candy flavor isn’t overpowering on the initial taste, but it comes out even more as an after taste. Though it is very sweet on its own, a little bit of sweetener really enhances that cotton candy taste. Second steep seems to lose most of the cotton candy flavor. Overall, I want more of this!!
This tea tastes like liquid summer. I don’t even understand how that kind of wizardry is possible… The watermelon flavor is present but doesn’t overpower the silver needle base.. which is great because I absolutely love silver needle. The little flowers make this a very pretty tea to look at, but I’m not sure I notice them in the taste?
This tea is very interesting. On my first attempt to drink it yesterday, I kept getting a very grassy taste. Could taste a hint of eggnog, but the taste of the green tea seemed to overpower it. On the second steep, the grassy taste diminished slightly . This morning, I used a lower temperature than recommended, as well as sweetened it slightly with honey, and it was delicious. The creamy eggnog flavor came through very well. Not sure what the problem was yesterday. Maybe my taste buds were just off.
I’m pretty cautious around chai, just because it can sometimes be too spicy and I’m not someone who loves A LOT of spice… But not only does this tea have the right amount of spice, but it actually tastes like pumpkin. By far the best pumpkin tea I have ever had. Absolutely love it.
I had high hopes for this tea. Smells nice in the bag, but the taste is just alright. The aftertaste leaves the flavor of carrot cake better than the tea itself does. The artificial flavoring is pretty noticeable.
The pumpkin flavor of this tea is very subtle. The spices aren’t overpowering, which tends to happen with a lot of the pumpkin teas I’ve tried in the past.
The best Genmaicha I have ever had. Great flavor.
I love the blend between the rooibos and black tea, as well as the chocolate and mango flavorings. It isn’t too sweet. It smells sweeter than it tastes. None of the flavors really stand out to me, but they all blend together for a very unique, wonderful taste.
I was really excited to try this when I ordered their deal from Groupon. I was pretty disappointed. I don’t really taste the matcha, as the a ‘hint’ of spices overpowers the entire blend. It could REALLY do without the spices. The spices ruined it for me. Otherwise, it tastes alright before those spices kick in.
