113 Tasting Notes
Very smooth and wonderful fruity flavor without being overly sweet. The pineapple and strawberry flavors are just barely peeking through for a great hint of sweet goodness. Steeped for 4-5 mins, but I think I may have used too little tea so it is a little weaker than I would expect (should have used more tea or steeped a couple minutes longer). Also, as a side note that may have affected my tasting, I had a handful of rainbow nerds shortly before my cup of tea…interesting way to approach a fruity tea tasting :)
It tastes pretty much exactly how the name describes it, like almond cookies. Really distinct almond and coconut flavors. Good, not as good as other almond and/or coconut flavored teas I’ve had, but good. The tea is a little watery, but I am starting to think that most of the teas from Subtle Tea are a little on the watery side. That was a little surprising for me, especially since I steeped it for 7+ minutes. Nevertheless, still enjoyable.
Really nice and flavorful black tea. Not heavy at all but smooth and crazy flavor. The combo of coconut, cocoa nibs and vanilla work together expertly. Also I quite successfully complimented the tea with a chocolate chip and walnut scone and some intriguing discussion…perfection. Great experience overall.
Thanks to Jack’s mom. It’s my first flowering tea and it was interesting to watch the flower blossom. Its maybe not the most appetizing thing to see in the bottom of your glass, but it has it own organic charm to it. It has a sweet fruity aroma with a very subtle flavor. I enjoyed most of the glass until the bud became really exposed at which point the tea became much more bitter (maybe it was over-steepeed?). Anyways, nice and smooth, a good calming choice.
