865 Tasting Notes
Lately I haven’t been a fan of mint teas but this one called to me today. It smells amazing. I find the mint a bit overpowering though. I couldn’t really catch any gunpowder or floral tastes. But as it cooled a bit more they started to come out, but sadly still slightly overpowered. I still liked this tea though :] I could see myself enjoying it when I’m in need of something mellow to relax with.
Thank you TeaEqualsBliss!!
Mm this tea smells so good! It’s been a lazy morning and this has just added to the awesomeness of it :] It’s sweet and creamy. It has a bit of a nutty taste to it and it’s kind of buttery. The taste is very mellow and it works for this tea and the fact it’s rooibos. This is probably one of the better rooibos teas I’ve had in a minute.
Wow! First review for this tea! Well I think I steeped this a little too long. It’s a tad bitter. But it is my fault. I tried to race the timer and clean out my teapot.. I lost.. anyways, the leaves of this tea are beautiful. The flavor is nice too. It has a smoke taste to it followed by a sweetness. It’s kind of a dry taste. I can see why this shouldn’t be steeped too long. The smokiness hides the gentle green tea and plum. It’s definitely different but I’m happy I ordered it.
MMM the first time I tried this I cold brewed it. I was at work and in need of something besides water. It was sooo creamy and delicious. It was strong too. So I was excited to try it hot :] It’s still creamy and delicious! Only hot. And paired with yogurt pretzels. Mm especially when they’re dipped in my tea. They get all melty and add some extra flavor to the tea. BEST SNACK EVER
A big thanks to TeaEqualsBliss!
I thought this was such an interesting tea when I saw it! I was a bit frightened because I had NO idea how to brew it. But I opened the little baggie and I smelled a little roasty flavor :] Mm the flavor of this tea is so delicious. It’s very roasty tasting. It has a sweet aftertaste but is still kind of woodsy, too. It has a little bit of a nut flavor. It reminds me of brazil nuts because of the slight buttery taste they have in common. MM I’m so happy I got to try this!
So about a week ago I was having a really, really bad night. I came home, made myself a huge pot of tea and started browsing the internet. Well I accidentally hit a button and it went to red leaf’s website. I was slightly annoyed by this until I saw it… COOKIES AND CREAM MATCHA!!! My eyes widened and then I blacked out. I do remember being super happy seeing it. And apparently I ordered it because it was in my mailbox a week later. You can also order it here:
Anyways, it smells SO good. I saved this to be the last matcha I tried today and I’m happy. Cookies and cream is one of my favorite flavors so when I saw they had a matcha flavored one.. it completely turned my bad night around :] I ordered the “distinctive” flavoring on this one and I’m happy I did. It’s so creamy and sweet. The matcha is now the one hiding behind the cookies and cream. It almost reminds me of a melted cookies and cream hershey bar(my favorite candy in the ENTIRE WORLD!) Well I think that this matcha has found it’s way into my permanent matcha collection. This is a wonderful one if you’re looking for that extra touch of creaminess! Ready… Set… Go buy it!!
