Smooth and buttery and smells just like melted caramel. Yum! Having it warm but would love to try it cold with the milk and sugar.

Sweet smoky flavor with a little maltyness. Stands up to the heaviness of the food (served as a lunch tea). The flavors stay with you for a little while after you swallow, keeping the sweetness on your palate.

Another pot and a little more subdued, I like it.

Good clean taste. Smooth but with a slight kick at the end.

drank Almond Cookies by Subtle Tea

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.

A calm and soothing flavor. Very delicate green tea and apricot flavor. I would prefer the taste to come through a little more forcefully, but the subtlety is nice and relaxing.

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.

I really like oolongs but I’m open to pretty much anything (although I’m still hesitant of pu-erh). Either way, any tea that expands my tastes, teaches me something, or promotes a love of tea is a winner in my book. If you have any questions, shoot an email to [email protected] or PM me.
