7 Tasting Notes
Mmm, tastes like licorice. This one is best if you just leave the teabag to soak forever. Otherwise it’s too light, as are the other teas I’ve tried by Pukka. But that said, I really do enjoy this one- lots of cardamom, and a nice sweetness from the aniseed, licorice and fennel. Super relaxing.
I kind of adore the sweet fruity teas from CS, even though I feel like they’re almost the “kool aid” of teas. This one is thick and dense, and I’m able to keep adding water to the same bag a couple of times (though generally I avoid this with most other teas). It’s dark and rich, not quite perfect for everyday, but once in a while, it’s a delight.
This tastes better than I’d anticipated, and mostly is dominated by the lemon myrtle, spearmint, and light cinnamon flavours. Nothing overpowering about any aspect of this tea, which was quite nice. I wanted to try to drink it this morning instead of my usual boring coffee, and while for the most part it was ideal- but almost felt too healthy! Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing….just that I have to work on my vices. :)
It’s very light, but the hibiscus lingers as the base, while the rosy tones and vanilla float above. The primary scent I get when I steep and sip is the vanilla, and this is one I’d just leave the bag in to keep going to get the most of the flavours. Mellow, lightly sweet, relaxing. Not bad, but not great.
I tend to be a fan of peach teas in general, and this was pleasant enough. As other reviewers have noted- there is a slight synthetic flavour to it, and I found that even with a touch of sweetener, it still had the lingering aftertaste of something not found in nature. Alright for inexpensive every day kind of tea, but nothing special, unfortunately.
