778 Tasting Notes
I feel like all of the holiday teas I got were a bad batch :\ I’m having an epic sip-down today and decided to try and finish the holiday teas. I remembered that this one would have a VERY bitter aftertaste so I added a bit of sugar.. It actually helped round the bitterness and bring out the sweet gingerbread taste. Now it’s a bit better. It’s a little spicy but mostly sweet. Now it just tastes like gingerbread with icing :]
Thanks SARE for the fantastic mystery swap!
This tea is fun. I can certainly see why it’s called Swampwater. But it’s very tasty! I love the little sprinkles in it! It’s fruity and sweet. You can still taste the rooibos under the sweet fruitiness. Someone had mentioned that it would make a great Halloween tea and I agree 100%! Now I want to order it and make cute little Halloween gifts for my tea-loving friends. It’s awesome :]
This went nicely with my lunch today :] Rosemary turkey, rosemary wasa crackers, and orange tomato soup! This is a strong black tea where the ginger REALLY shines. There is a little bit of lemon, but it sits mostly behind the ginger. It’s spicy but has a sweet, fruity ending. I liked it :]
Thank you Tattooed_tea! This smells so good! I was expecting a stronger flavor for this tea but it’s actually quite delicate. The fruit flavor is pretty light and let’s the rooibos shine through. It’s a nice combination and both are pretty equal. No dominate flavors going on here. I really liked this! Thanks again!
Thanks 52teas for sending a lovely sample of this! So yeah, it was kind of chilly for an iced tea… But Rainbow Sherbet? I’d drink it in a blizzard, it’s that good. The flavors are so tangy. I’m getting more lime than anything. But I’m not complaining :] This is the best iced tea I’ve had in a loooong time. I will definitely be ordering more!!
I love the little marshmallows in the tea. Except I ate them halfway through steeping the tea D: I’ve heard good things and bad things about this tea so I’m excited to try it… ok here goes first sip..
Hmm… Definitely different. I’m getting a little bit of the graham cracker, a tiny bit of chocolate and nothing really of the marshmallow (most likely because I ate them..). I’m getting a lot of hazelnut and other nutty flavors. Meh, it’s more of a chocolate/hazelnut tea to me.
I saw this when I was placing an order and HAD to have it. It’s so delicious. I wasn’t expecting it to be this creamy. It tastes like warm neapolitan ice cream. As it cools the flavors come out a bit more. Mm and I LOVE that I can pick out the different flavors. Everything blends so well together with the honeybush.
This one has been ignored for a while so I thought it should get some attention. As soon as I opened the tin I was greeted by a coco/dark chocolate smell. I love watching this tea steep. The little balls are fun to watch open up.
The taste of this tea is still amazing :] Bold black tea with hints of dark chocolate. I knew I picked the right tea to start my day off :D
