243 Tasting Notes
A very light and enjoyable cup. It’s fun to watch it steep as well because it starts as little rolled balls of tea and they unfurl into lovely leaves. Steeped this in my winter themed perfect mug (I need one for spring/summer) and I love covering it while it steeps and then when it’s time you open it and BOOM leaves ahoy. Anyway, this tea is very light and tasty, a bit vegetal, a little smokey, and a little bit of a raisin type note. Not bad, I’ve actually started drinking more green/white/oolong tea than black tea. Never thought I’d say that!
Hm. This is Banana Nut Bread with a twist. I didn’t really care for the Banana Nut Bread (still have some in my sample bag). I wish DT would send some different kinds of herbals with their sampler kits (though I did skip the winter one).
This is more enjoyable than the BNB (too lazy to type it out again), but I don’t think I’d go out of my way to purchase it. It’s like BNB toned down with some coconut thrown in as well as a mix of some juicier fruits. Kinda weird, but not bad.
Yum yum. This tea has me smacking my lips after every sip! My first milk oolong of any sort, I have a sample from Teavivre sitting around as well so I will have compare the two later. They are both flavored I think (not super sure about this one), but that’s no problem.
Creamy and delicious, milky sweet. Just plain delicious! First steep, we’ll see how the others go. I’m glad I got a decent sized back of this!
Had this last night after a scary incident of losing one of my cats (still a kitten really) for a couple hours. It looks like she slipped out the front door when I got home and I found her (after much searching) on the steps leading up the next floor (we rent a condo). She was curled up in a little ball and looked miserable. I felt horrible but I’m so glad she didn’t go far. She does have a microchip and a collar but still… Anyway so I needed a nice cup of tea to calm me down.
I really loved the flavor, nutty and a lovely bit of cinnamon (which I love in tea). I also love the color change, tea should be fun. :) I’m a big fan of sprinkles in flavored teas as well! I’d definitely love to have more of this on hand, it was enjoyable to drink.
I have a bit of this as part of the Spring Collection. It smells amazing, even with my stuffy nose. I forgot to set the timer so it steeped for at least 5 minutes. Not bitter at all though and still quite tasty. I think I get a hint of pomegranate in there but it is mostly mango. The juicy mango flavor is the most prominent, as opposed to black tea. I bet this would make a great iced tea. No sweetener needed either, I think the sugar on the mango pieces might help. Very yummy!
Too tired for a long review – but this was a free sample so I’ll do my best.
Lovely berry flavor but the smell throws me off a bit. The dry leaf (are they still leaves?) has a very medicinal smell. It doesn’t translate as much into the liquor but still slightly off-putting. In any case, not bad but I have other rooibos blends that I enjoy more.
