3125 Tasting Notes
Seriously… I haven’t reviewed this? :/ I’ve drank this probably a solid 5 times, at least. I love the cacao shell bits – really differentiates it from other English Toffee teas I’ve had. And the pu’erh is as un-fishy as I’ve tasted. Basically, it’s a perfect tea for those times you want a sweet treat without the calories, as it’s quite a rich-tasting tea.
Not bad, actually. I had fairly low expectations as it’s a flavoured green, but it was pleasantly creamy from the coconut, and fruity from pineapple/mango. Basically tastes like a fruity, hibiscus-less herbal. I drank it warm/cooled, and I think it would be great iced. Chamomile is not noticeable, which is ideal.
I’m less stoked about this tea than I hoped – unfortunately, I’m really only tasting smoke, and missing both peach and butterscotch. I tried to liven it up by adding a bit of sugar, but that didn’t really change anything.
Perhaps I happened to get an extra-smoky cup? I’ll give it another try later.
ETA: Second infusion is rather tasty… less smoke, more peach, and more base tea. Still not really butterscotch, but an enjoyable second infusion nonetheless.
Another interesting one! I drank this around the same time as Mayan Chocolate Chai, so probably need to try it again on its own to get a better picture of how it tastes.
However, I do certainly recall a lovely nuttiness that I quite enjoyed, and in reading a bit more about the tea, I see that it’s supposed to taste like walnuts and sweetness, which I’m pretty sure it did. More details to come some other day, maybe, if I get around to it, but this is a generally positive review :D
Picked this one up purely for curiousity, as I haven’t had rosemary in a tea before. While it is interesting, it is reminding me too much of medicinal blends for my liking, and therefore I don’t think I’ll be trying rosemary teas in the future. I was also hoping for a bit more tangerine – which smelled great when I opened the package – but it was definitely relegated to the background a bit by the rosemary.
Probably not a tea for everyone, but is a fun experiment. If you are a fan of rosemary and/or minty teas, I think you may enjoy this.
