10 Tasting Notes


While the novelty of the name/inspiration amused me, the ingredients are what sold me on making the purchase. Now I can’t imagine NOT having this tea in a permanent spot within my cupboard. The almond makes it sweet enough without needing to add any sugar, the soft yet warm cinnamon notes linger with every aftertaste, and the black assam steadies the entire cup. I prefer just a splash of milk in my morning tea, but have also happily sipped on a pure black cup of it as well. I cannot recommend this blend highly enough!

One of the better chai teas I’ve had outside of homemade/from scratch. The peppercorn and star anise are definitely present, so if you’re getting used to the spices, I’d recommend sweetening it and adding some milk.

Finally got around to trying this sample! Upon opening the package, it immediately brought to mind caramel candies! After steeping, I could smell the roasted mate at the forefront. I added a little sugar in the raw and a tiny bit of milk (again with the caramel candy vibe, I felt it needed a ‘creamy’ texture).

It’s definitely not terrible. By the second cup, it’s grown on me. It also isn’t likely to be one I’ll order in the future.

Light, earthy oolong with the pomegranate sweeping in as a lively aftertaste. I wouldn’t try steeping it ANY more than twice; the flavor is the strongest in the first cup.

Approachable, subtle, smooth, and delicious! My first foray into peach tea, and it still holds a special place in my memory.

Initially tried this as an iced tea, and that’s probably still how I prefer it in general. The fruit really pops with the cold temperature, however, the spices pleasantly surface when brewed and drank hot! Bold, a little tart, but very nice either way.

I like minty flavors in gum (or chocolate! or ice cream!), so while this tea is good, it’s not necessarily something I gravitate toward. That being said, it’s very refreshing iced on a summer day, possibly mixing it with some lemonade!

A must if you have a steam wand at your disposal, or if you plan to heat milk for a chai latte! However, as it is concentrate, it will not keep for much more than a week so it should be consumed within that timeframe. Cozy and comforting, perfect for a chilly day!

I had the opportunity to try it as a sample (I have family who live in TX. They stopped by Fusion Tea’s table display, and thoughtfully picked up an assortment of samples for me to try!). This ended up being one of my favorites after a single cup! Now I regularly keep it stocked in my cupboard.

Full-bodied flavor that lasts through three steeps, and one of the few I’m willing to drink iced! I usually tend to stay away from bold fruits as they tend to be too sweet for me, but this blend’s balance works for me. Every one of my friends who has tried it has REALLY enjoyed it!

Personal prep: Boil water, 1st steep for five minutes, 2nd steep for eight.

I drink this virtually every morning! Plenty of flavor, just enough caffeine to start my day, and I heartily recommend it.

If you want to make this with “extra Irish,” try it with Jameson Irish Whiskey. ;-)

Personal prep: Heat the kettle to just before whistling, steep for two minutes, add a splash of milk and a pinch of sugar. For a second steep, increase time to three minutes.

Hey, I’m Jessica!

I started drinking tea in late 2010 and haven’t gone back! Generally, I prefer black, oolong, or white teas, although I enjoy being surprised by the odd herbal or green. (Do NOT offer me anything with chamomile, though!)

Rarely do I doctor my teas before drinking; I enjoy the bare flavor of the brew. 99 times out of 100 I will drink hot tea regardless of the weather or temperature of my environment.
