Sweet, fruity (not overly). Lemongrass comes through pretty faithfully.
175 Tasting Notes
Orange + vanilla + liquorice = Good. Really good. Really really good.
This is probably my favorite Vintage Teaworks tea. Nice and smooth, a hint of licorice, and just slightly sweet.
This is pretty interesting. It’s very cherry (and maybe cinnamon?) and slightly pu-erh. Pretty good. I’d even suggest it to people who aren’t fans of pu-erh, just to give it a try.
Sweet with a little bite. I think I prefer this over the Oolong, where the Oolong can be overly sweet sometimes I find this one a little more even-tempered.
Sweet, smooth. You get a little traditional Oolong flavor but the inclusion of papaya is so unique that it’s like trying it for the first time.
I can’t believe I keep forgetting to review this tea. Good iced or hot, pretty difficult to over steep (or at least the tea is very forgiving). The taste is nutty, kind of almond-like (or maybe a little cocoa), but not overpowering. Incredibly convenient on those days you forget to save time for brewing tea (great for work/school/etc).
This is my first Darjeeling, so my opinion isn’t particularly well-informed. I’d definitely describe it as delicate, slightly sweet/wine-like.
Not as sweet as A&D’s magnolia flavored Mermaid’s Kiss or a traditional jasmine, reminds me a little of Easter candy. I’d definitely recommend it.
I’ve heard people complain that Kusmi tea is a little expensive and maybe not the greatest tasting. I’d completely disagree. (The pictures don’t do it justice, the tin I got was huuuuuge.) Kashmir Tchai isn’t particularly surprising, it tastes basically how it smells, and it smells good. Spicy, subtle, good on a winter day.
OOh, this is good stuff. Mild, but not weak. Hits the spot on a soggy day.
I got #17! A nice blend. I have completely forgotten what I was going to write here.
I got #8! A decent tea. I was hoping for a repeat of their previous Ceylon, but this one isn’t quite as rich for me (but there’s nothing wrong with that).
Yum! A gem of a tea.
The bergamot comes out pretty strong if you try to make this cold. I wouldn’t recommend it.
Tastes exactly as you’d expect cold. Not exactly what I was hoping for, however.
Makes a nice iced tea.
Everyone should have a jasmine tea in their cupboard.
I’m disappointed in myself for drinking this up over the winter, it makes a wonderful iced tea.
Interesting, sweet, a little more mild than I expected. If I had to describe the cinnamon taste it’s a little like an apple pie crust cinnamon.
I’ve had this tea for about a year and a half or so. I’d say my particular batch is definetly starting to go stale. If you have any I’d recommend trying to drink it up within the first year.
I like a little ginger in my tea, but I’ve had trouble finding a palatable technique for brewing with ginger. Usually I cut a thin thin slice and throw it in the bottom of my thermos, but the ginger gets pretty strong after a few hours. This time I cut (and peeled) a thick slice and brewed it directly with the leaves and it worked out really nice.
“Seek happiness. Be Kind. Drink tea.”
I will do exactly two of those things. Slightly floral, sweet, bitter like most white teas when hot. A little lighter than I expected. I’m curious what it’d be like cold. In my experience that’s usually where white teas shine.
I’ve had this particular batch almost two years, maybe. I’ve essentially been hoarding it because it’s one of the few herbal teas I enjoy(ed). Unfortunately it is not, I’d argue, a tea that ages very well. It now tastes only vaguely of it’s original glory. Drink it up if you’ve got it.
