871 Tasting Notes
Still battling my almost cold. So far I’ve stayed on top of it so it’s just stayed as a little cough and scratch throat.
I totally forgot that I had this so I made it as a bedtime cup. It’s very nice. I don’t ever remember tasting this much ginger in it but I’m ok with it. Now for some sleep! Goodnight Steepster!
Oooohh my goodness gracious this tea smells amazing. It’s so tart and dessert like. The flavor isn’t as strong as I thought it was going to be. There is a nice citrus taste and the cream is a lovely touch. It really does taste like a liquid cream tart. I’m happy it’s a rooibos base. It just works really well.
MMMMmmmmm :] I had this tea on the way to work today. I only steeped it two minutes because I feel like Adagio’s black teas are grumpy. At first all I get is spice but once it starts to cool all of the flavors come out. I can catch hints of caramel, apple, and the creme flavor adds a bit of a smooth note. Overall I reeeaaalllly enjoyed this.
Thank you Ellyn! I feel like I’m starting to come down with something. I’ve been waking up with a sore throat, stuffy nose, and I feel like something is pushing on my chest making me cough :[ So I was happy to see this in my sample box. I always find blends like this soothing to a cold.
ANYWAYS… this was a nice herbal cup. The ginger is spicy but I like how I can taste the lemongrass and licorice through it. I couldn’t really find the spearmint but that’s ok. I was satisfied with the other flavors going on. I liked it :]
I completely forgot I had this tea. I love, love, love the aroma of this blend. But sometimes I get sad because there isn’t as much oolong as there should be in this(surprise, surprise..) so I added some of the Six Summits oolong. The flavor is very soft. The strawberry is very natural tasting and the champagne flavors are very interesting but it works :]
Thank you Alphakitty :] Mmm this is a very nice green. The aroma of this tea is extremely juicy. The peach flavor is juicy and very sweet. I can catch a bit of a floral note along with the fruitiness. The flavor is definitely not overdone and fits with the sweet green tea. Overall I liked this one :] Thanks again!
Thank you Ellyn! I love me some Moroccan Mint. I ordered some from Whispering Pines and the label said to steep it in 212 degree water for 30 seconds. I thought it was a bit odd and didn’t think it would turn out good but for some reason I find it more flavorful and bold rather than steeping it like a normal green. I pretty much chugged this down after a HUGE meal. I had a tummy ache :[ But it’s gone now :D
Thank you again :]
Thanks Alphakitty! I thought this would be a good one before bed. I have had too much sugar and caffeine today. The aroma of this herbal is pretty peachy and juicy. At first the flavor is ok. There is that peachy, juiciness I was smelling… but then it just turns to a bad sugary aftertaste like cheap peach candy. Maybe it’s all of the candied fruit? For some reason I don’t really do well with heavy fruit herbals :\ Even the really well done ones. Maybe next time I’ll go with trying it iced.
