243 Tasting Notes
Yum yum. I’ve had this both iced and hot and it’s delicious either way. I don’t know what else to say about it other than that it’s like a creamy vanilla cake with hints of fruitiness. Oh, and of course the sprinkles, love, love, love the sprinkles. :)
I also ordered some of this for my mom for her birthday, couldn’t resist.
This is my first yellow tea and I really like it!
Smells like a black tea and has a lovely golden liquor.
Very light, dry, and super smooth, also a bit fruity. Delicious. Apparently this is similar to Darjeeling teas which means I may have to try some. I will definitely be getting more to have on hand and trying some new yellow teas.
Edit: This has cooled a bit and now I can really taste the fruit, lightly peachy I think. I got 2-3 infusions out of this, the last was very very light but still drinkable.
This tea is so fun! I love all the teas with little candy bits and fun stuff like cool colors. This smells amazing in the bag, sweet and fruity.
Brewed, it is awesome. My first steeping was a murky brown/green color, the second bright green at the beginning and then as I forgot about it (oops), it ended up a deep olive. Truly swampy.
Nice fruity taste, didn’t need to add any sugar. I think I can pick up the guava and it is tasty. The green rooibos is great (though I like red as well), light and fruity. Yum yum.
Definitely want to do this iced!
Well after the Earl Grey failure this morning I knew I had to have something I enjoyed. I’ve tasted had this tea before but hadn’t joined Steepster yet. So without further ado…
The leaves are really pretty, the gold and black contrast nicely. They’re small, fuzzy wiry leaves with a smell that does remind me a little of a hay, but that doesn’t come across once brewed. The liquor is a deep amber that I wasn’t expecting.
This is a pretty smooth black tea, a little astringent. No bitterness at all. and I get the “meaty” aftertaste… I think. It may come from the thicker mouthfeel. A very tasty, savory tea overall.
Time for dessert! I finally got my order in from David’s Tea. This tea smells fantaaaaaaastic. Mapley mapley goodness, plus adorable little maple leaf sprinkles and chunks of caramel and toffee. I love tea that’s tasty and fun.
When I visited Canada with my French class way back in high school we visited a maple syrup shop/diner where before dinner they (jokingly) told us to try maple syrup on everything. I did (and I mean everything) and never looked back.
The maple carries into the steeped tea with notes of caramel. The rooibos isn’t overpowering, the maple really stands out (which is what I was hoping for!) but doesn’t punch you in the face. This is super yummy and I can’t wait to try it iced with a bit of sugar added.
Successful second steep, less maple this time and more rooibos. Still has that rich sweetness from the toffee and caramel though.
