181 Tasting Notes
The combination of spices and guayusa is great. I love the smell and the taste (with a touch of agave added), and the energy I get from the guayusa is really nice.
I need to try more guayusa blends.
I won’t rate this one, as I’m not a fan of black tea. I do, however, love all chai spices, so I thought I’d give it a try.
With the addition of lots of sugar and almond milk it was palatable, but reinforced my lack of desire to drink black tea.
It’s a funny thing. I can’t stand black licorice, but I love licorice and anise teas. Add mint, and I’m sold. This was a winner for me, and I’ll enjoy it throughout the winter months. The additional spices help to give it a unique taste, and the smell is great.
I don’t worry about over-steeping this, as it tastes good to me no matter how long it’s steeped for.
Only for licorice tea lovers.
I really like this one. I’m a huge fan of all of the spices in it, so it was an easy decision to buy this one. I enjoyed it with a touch of agave, but didn’t like it at all when I added some almond milk.
One of the better rooibos teas I’ve tried.
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this one. I don’t mind green tea, but I’m not a huge fan, either. Toasted Walnut has a great smell to it, and a nice, delicate taste. I’m not sure how walnutty it really was, but that’s ok, as it tasted good anyway.
The second infusion was even lighter tasting, but still good. I have enough for a few more cups before I have to decide if I’ll replenish.
This was the first loose leaf tea I ever purchased (I’m pretty new to the loose leaf world). I LOVED it. I steeped it for a long time, and the creamy, coconutty taste was great. The mint helps give it a fresh taste. I liked it hot, but actually preferred it cool.
I drink this straight up, as I think sweetener would make it sickly sweet.
This has a great smell and a nice, crisp taste of mint. I prefer DT’s Peppermint, but the Spearmint is still a great tea. I think I’ll try combining the two.
I think I’m in the minority here, as I found this to be a very weak, kind of boring tea. I still have about 20g left, so I’ll definitely be trying this one again, but I’m not holding out much hope. What is everyone else tasting? Are my taste buds broken?
What can I say? It has a strong, sharp peppermint taste. I happen to really like peppermint tea, so that’s ok by me. I’ve steeped this one at all different times (anywhere between 30 sec and 10 min), and it’s tasted fine to me. It’s even ok cold.
This is a great herb to use to mask the taste of bitter herbs that you may want to make into a tea. I’ve made a lot of herbal teas taste better by adding a touch of peppermint.
A staple in my cupboard.
I really like this one, partly because of the taste (chocolate and raspberries, how can you go wrong?), but also because I like the energy the mateine in it gives me.
The initial smell is amazing, and while the taste doesn’t fully live up to the smell, it does a pretty good job. I discovered that I prefer it steeped for a long time, and cooled off a bit, which makes it perfect to take to work with me. A bit of stevia or cane sugar helps to bring out the flavours.
