181 Tasting Notes
Sipdown. This is a nice, smooth, comforting tea. I like the lapacho and holy basil base, and the lemongrass gives it a fresh taste.
I like this tea more than I expected to. I don’t like ‘floral’ teas, but this one tastes more like apple and cinnamon than flowers to me.
A nice, comforting tea.
I’m dropping my rating on this. I haven’t had it in awhile and decided to give it one last chance. It tastes so artificial I ended up dumping most of my cup out.
I got the email from DavidsTea – buy $25 and get 50g of any tea free. I didn’t need any more tea, but guess where I found myself today? You guessed it.
I honestly couldn’t remember if I’d tried Jessie’s Tea before. I remember debating about it because I love coconut, but I hate lavender, and I was curious as to which would win out in the mix. So I bought a bit today and just tried it.
I do not like the dry scent – lavender lovers would like it. Steeped, I get more of a rooibos scent than anything else. Taste-wise, I’m disappointed, but not surprised. It’s a bit rooibosy, a bit floral, and not at all coconut.
This is going into the trade pile.
I’m on a quest to drink down some of my smaller bags of tea (before I buy more), so this one was up tonight.
I still love the smell in the bag, and am still underwhelmed by the tea itself. It’s not bad, it’s just not that great. Kind of bland.
One more cup and this one is retired. For good.
I like cocoa, oolong, and licorice, so except for the black tea, the ingredients in this are right up my alley. A good start that went downhill when I opened the package. The dry mix has a strong, almost alcohol-like smell to it.
Brewed, it has a lighter smell. The alcohol scent is pretty much gone, thank goodness. Taste-wise, I get a bit of nuttiness, but overall the main impression is sweetness, probably from the licorice and flavourings. I don’t add anything to my tea, and I’m glad here, as I think adding sugar would make it undrinkable (for me).
Overall, it’s drinkable, but not something I think I’ll ever wake up in the morning craving. It’s too bad. If it were a bit nuttier and not as sweet, I think I would have loved it.
Today is a green tea kind of day. I realized I haven’t cracked my bag of this open in a long time, so it’s first up.
It still has that smooth, creamy taste I remember. Love it. Now I just have to drink a lot of it before it loses its taste or the quality diminishes. I tend to forget greens have a relatively short lifespan compared to other types of tea.
I like the fact this really tastes like apple. It’s nice that there’s no astringency to the green tea, so it goes down smoothly.
Not sure if I’ll buy more than the sample I already have, but if I have a craving for an apple tea, I’ll reach for this one.
I brewed this and Tealux’s Coconut Creme at the same time to compare them. The ingredients seemed very similar, and they looked the same, other than Persimmon’s tea being in smaller pieces.
Brewed at the same temp, same time, and in the same type of steeper, the results are: the Persimmon Tree’s has a creamier coconut taste and richer mouth feel. I really like both, but I think this one edges out the lighter Tealux’s by a bit.
I’m glad I compared them before I drank DTs Cinnamon Heart, as I tried them again after and all I could taste was cinnamon. I need something to cleanse my palate.
