126 Tasting Notes
Considering how much I love and now miss Honeybush Lemon Ginger from DAVID’s tea, I was quite excited when I found this tea. Unfortunately, there’s just something missing in this tea-it’s too plain. It kind of tastes like a very plain rooibos tea with a hint of citrus. I think if they would have put lemongrass and ginger in this tea it would have been perfect. Unfortunately they didn’t though, so I will just use up my tin and try something else.
My first time trying international house of tea! A got a small amount from my husband’s cousin who is no longer drinking teas with caffeine. This tea is really nice and smooth and “pure tasting”. I have to watch it with oolong teas due to my sensitive stomach so I probably will just use this tea up and not repurchase, but I definitely recommend it for those who like oolongs!
I’ve been trying to decrease my tea collection, but December being my birthday month and with Christmas, I knew I was going to get tea as gifts ;).
I brewed this for a solid 10 minutes on my break at work. When I went to drink it, it tasted under-leafed and I know that wasn’t the case. My cup is slightly larger than normal but I know I used enough. To me it just tastes like watered-down Forever Nuts. You can taste a bit of apple but like other posters have said it is a little artificial. As for the custard part, that’s purely in the smell of the tea and not in the taste.
My verdict is that Forever Nuts is a better choice. I’ll use this tea up but I will not repurchase (especially because I’m getting out of fruit teas).
What can I say- I’m not a hibiscus fan; it’s just too tart. I think that it’s awesome that all the profits are going to such a great initiative, but if I don’t like the tea I don’t like the tea :(. This tea isn’t TOO unbearable if I under-leaf it and make it iced, but otherwise I won’t be buying this again.
