121 Tasting Notes
This is a nice flavored green tea that actually lives up to it’s name and scent.
The brewed leaves smell a bit astringent and sour as well as sweet with a grass note to keep it balanced. The pomegranate pairs well with the hibiscus. The brewed tea has a slight pink tinge to the liquid. This would also make a good iced tea if brewed twice as strong and then diluted with ice cubes (or “tea” cubes!).
Flavors: Fruit Tree Flowers, Grass
I’m sad to see this tea go. The flavor reminded me of a Chinese green plum tea that I got from Ten Ren, but more balanced and less sweet. I like the funky punch of the kombucha which is mellowed out by the green tea. Definitely one of the better Capital Teas.
Flavors: Grass, Plums
This is about the 5th time I’ve used this mix and I think I’ve got the hang of it. I mix about 3 tablespoons with 6 ounces unsweetened almond milk and 2 ounces of espresso. The unsweetened milk really changes the flavor and makes it more balanced. Since I’m not focusing on the sugar, the spice comes through a lot better and it’s a delight to drink. It’s bumping Granville Island down a notch!
I brewed this plain for about 5 minutes. The smell of the wet leaves is very strong in citrus and a spice I can’t place my finger on.
The orange flavor is bright and fresh. The tea leaves have a little astringency, but are not bitter.
Thank you TeaTiff for a great sample & introducing me to a new tea company.
Flavors: Cloves, Orange Zest
I re-steeped this for a second brew and it tasted just as great! I steeped it for a little longer since I figured the tea leaves would need it. I didn’t need to add any extra sugar and it tasted very good, almost as good as the first steep! I’m going to try to squeeze as many re-steeps out of this as possible since I only have enough for one more cup (thanks TeaTiff!)
Wow. I didn’t think I was going to like this tea, but I LOVE it. This may be one of the best teas I’ve ever had.
It tastes like roasted nuts and isn’t too sweet. It’s very unique and the black tea goes well with the flavors. Thank you so much TEATIFF for giving me a sample of this & introducing 52 Teas to me.
Flavors: Butter, Nuts
I added this to 3/4 cup milk and some Counter Culture espresso. I like this chai better than Tiger Spice because it is not as sweet, though I do wish it were more heavily spiced. I enjoyed their chai tea at the market & thought it would be as equally spicy.
