23 Tasting Notes
This bag smelled like a mingle of flowery perfume and a bakery. I don’t know why spices with almond, cherry, and hibiscus works, but it just does. It’s a rather strong, feminine tea and not for the faint of heart.
Smoky chocolate raisin! I love this tea. I also love blending it with several other teas. It’s good hot, iced, and with or without milk and sugar. I just love it.
This one was a bit of a challenge for me because the character has approximately 10 seconds of screen time though she plays a pivotal role. I think I captured her in essence, though. Strong black tea with floral accents and bit of pizzazz from the tropical fruit. Definitely deserving of the Hale name and comparable to Derek’s blend, but not the same.
This is a very strong tea with complex flavors, which I suppose is appropriate considering the character. This was the first time I’d used aniseed and I’m happy with the results because it enhances the taste of the gunpowder green. The orange peels and rose hips bring out the zest of the earl grey and the chai brings the spice. Definitely not what I would deem a hero’s tea, but who needs heroes when you have Uncle Sassy Wolf?
So soothing on my sore throat! Just what I needed. Like with Boyd, I didn’t know quite what to expect. The floral lightness and vanilla warmth are in contrast with the crisp mint. The tea tastes like a soft, melting, after meal mint that lingers. It’s lovely.
Smoky, juicy tang! This tea is like someone took a Shirley Temple and roughed it up a bit. The cherry and gunpowder get along well with added kicks from the pomegranate and the accents. The ginger is just hinted enough that it’s there and adds another dimension, but it does so without being spicy. I really enjoy this one iced and it blends well with several of my Teen Wolf blends.
Honestly? It reminds me of mint-chocolate candy more than anything. The hints of chamomile and lemon grass are nice and give it warmth and a little bite respectively. The taste definitely lingers and it seems to do well hot or iced, but I don’t see the need for sweetener at all.
This blend is so warm, floral, and candied-fruit sweet that I think it will be misunderstood and underestimated just like her character. I could honestly drink it with anything and the best part? It’s decaf. Hello, late night tea that gives me a warm hug. Where have you been all my life?
Jackson is my favorite of the Teen Wolf character blends. I wanted him to be apple pie with a twist and the blackberry along with rose hips and lemon balm definitely add twists. Good ones. So good that I can’t go a day without drinking at least one cup, usually more. I liked him iced more than hot, but it’s good either way. This goes great with the Lydia tea. What a shock, huh?
Strong, dirty, spicy, zesty black tea with a hint of fruit that I can take hot or iced, with or without milk and sugar? Yes, please.
