236 Tasting Notes
Yum! I think it’s super awesome that sTEAp Shoppe doesn’t use “flavor enhancers” as they call them. Not that that’s a big issue in this tea, but something that I just find kinda of cool!
Anyway, on to the tea. I love green tea and mint, be it peppermint or spearmint. Either works! This one has peppermint but not a overpowering amount (which is really easy to do with peppermint). Not sure what the ginkgo brings, I’d have to see what it tasted like on it’s own. The stevia adds a nice sweetness, but again not too much. Nice cuppa. :)
Tea: 2 tsp
Water: ~16 oz
Finally finished up the sample. :( Definitely want more of this!
Ah! Totally thought I had reviewed this before! I thought I wrote down stuff somewhere but I can’t find it. Anyway, this is fantastic. It’s like s’mores over a fire. :) I’d write more but I really drank this quickly, I’ll just have to wait until I buy some. Very good!
Not bad! This one seems to get a lot of negative reviews. I’m not going to go out and buy a pound of this, but it’s definitely drinkable. I definitely get a molasses smell along with the spices and ginger. Lighter taste, definitely gingerbread. Again, not bad.
So I don’t even watch Teen Wolf (well I didn’t, I decided to check it out a few days ago) but I saw this on the popular blends page and I need some seasonal teas!
Dry this smells like a almond cookie with spice and caramel. Sweet but not overpowering.
It brews up nice and dark, with the almond oolong as the strongest smell and spice after that.
Strong and smooth, definitely get that base oolong taste and black tea gives a bit more body. A bit earthy/wood, probably from the oolong and a slight astringency. The pumpkin isn’t super evident and brings more spice/chai flavors than pumpkin. Yum!
Tea: 3 teaspoons
