794 Tasting Notes
This tea reminds me of something from Starbucks.. but a lot better. It has caramel rooibos, chocolate rooibos, and hazelnut rooibos. The most dominant flavor is the hazelnut followed by the caramel. The chocolate lingers in the background. The hazelnut always reminds me of coffee but the carmel and chocolate kind of even it out. This tea is actually pretty good. A nice cup before bed or just to relax with.
The first time I tried this I think I may have steeped it a minute shorter then needed. It was so weak! So I upped it a minute and added just a TINY bit more and it was amazing. This oolong kind of has a heavier flavor. Kind of earthy with hints of woods and a slight apple aftertaste. I really enjoy this one. I wish I had ordered more!
Thank you to Nicole for sending me this! It smells so good in the bag. It’s a bit stronger in vanilla though. As soon as I poured in into my cup I got a HUGE vanilla smell in my face. Oh it was so nice. The taste is mostly vanilla with a hint of jasmine aftertaste. It’s creamy and floral. Very delicious! I think I might have to order more for myself!
I love this peach oolong. It’s one of the only teas I’ve reordered. There isn’t a whole lot of the peach flavor but enough to make it a tad sweet without an icky aftertaste.. It’s kind of a juicy peach though. If you’re in the mood for a mild fruity oolong this might just be the one you’re looking for.
I completely forgot I had this until I opened up one of my sample tins! Well now you all know what I had for breakfast :] Some delicious chai. This tea to me is a classic chai. But it’s a bit lighter with more of a black tea tone to it(which I love). I’m not one for a strong chai unless it’s snowing and I’m cursing the weather. It’s the perfect strength in spice without being TOO strong. Probably my new favorite chai :]
ALSO: Thank you Epi Tea for this wonderful sample :D
Geez… waiting for this to cool and the smell is driving me crazy(in a good way of course)! It smells soooo yummy.
This tea is very creamy.. At first it reminds me of coffee, it has a nice coconut/nutty flavor to it then runs into chocolatey nuttyness. The aftertaste kind of reminds me of a graham cracker.. or a marshmallow? I’m so confused. ANYWAYS this tea is fantastic whatever the aftertaste is.
