140 Tasting Notes
The smell is very creamy and smells strongly of honey. There is no chocolate taste, though on some sips the chili hits the back of the throat and lingers in an unpleasant way. Thanks for the sample Nattie, but this tea wasn’t for me.
Flavors: Cream, Honey
Thanks to Nattie I received a nice sample of this.
Clean and sweet but without being syrupy. The mint and Roobis keep the tea earthy and fresh and the chocolate adds a nice roasted and nutty deep sweetness. A really pleasant, mild tea that isn’t limited to just dessert.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Cream, Dark Bittersweet, Earth, Espresso, Nuts, Tobacco, Vanilla
This tea is more floral and delicate than the lychee burst. The first taste and smell is the green tea and jasmine. The end of the sip is sweet from the passion fruit. I could see this getting a little astringent if overbrewed, but I brewed it just right & it tastes great.
I don’t usually reach for lychee teas because they can be too astringent. This one is just right. It’s pleasantly juicy and fruity without tasting artificial or floral. It is clean and the two stars (lychee and black tea) really shine through.
I would highly recommend this tea for those that have been burned by off-putting lychee flavored teas. I can’t find anything wrong with this tea and I enjoy drinking it. I love when teas that smell good have a matching taste, which this does.
Flavors: Fruit Tree Flowers, Lychee
I’m glad that this is an organic tea from Tea Forte (Thanks Suziqzer!) I was worried because when I smelled it, it smelled very strongly of cinnamon, but thankfully once sipped it’s actually more balanced. It is a bit misleading to call it a “chai” since it is actually a caffeine-free rooibis and the only spice I really tasted was cinnamon. It was a good tea to sip, but I wouldn’t reach for it again.
I wish I would have read the tasting notes for this tea. This tea is similar to Harney & Son’s Cinnamon tea because it is sweet and has a very strong cinnamon flavor. Personally, the tea was too overpowering for me, but I was glad I got to try it from a recent swap with Suziqzer
Dare I say… this is my favorite kombucha EVER! I’ve tried a variety of kombucha brands and flavors that range from yeast to vinegar. This one, literally, hits the sweet spot for perfect balance between sweetness and acidity. The ginger adds a warming spice to the mix that keeps it grounded and from becoming too simple and flat.
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
