Nice and mild tisane. Relaxing. Although the ingredient list has some strong and vibrant flavors: peppermint , hibiscus, orange, the tea is mild and naturally sweet. The orange does not predominate and honestly, I don’t taste it very much. I also would not say this tastes like ice cream either.

drank Pina Colada Honeybush by 52teas
328 tasting notes

I bought this one a few months ago. Then put it aside when I decided I did not like rooibos/honeybush. Made it yesterday and wow! This is naturally sweet and tastes like a smooth pina colada. A definite winner and makes it reconsider my honeybush ban (still the rooibos ban is in effect).

Erin

All of the rooibos/honeybush blends I’ve had from 52teas have always pleasantly surprised me, because they never really taste like a rooibos/honeybush.

Stephanie

Yep, I was surprised by this too! This one made me love honeybush!

Wow! This is a wonderful Da Hong Pao! I bought/tried this one at the same time as Harney and Sons version. Well, when I opened the aluminum package for H&S the fragrance was mild but The JK Tea Shop’s version: the fragrance was overpowering! This Da Hong Pao has subtle toasty flavors, like a smoky caramel. The H&S pales in comparison- perhaps it is not as fresh. This tea is shipped directly from China so perhaps this is the difference…

This tea is so full of flavor and depending on steeping conditions and temperature of the tea when I drink it, the flavors seems to subtle-ly change. Always there is the pop of raisin /grape. But sometimes, I get a whiff of butter and other times a whiff (but barely of cinnamon). Lately, I have decided to quit adding sugar to tea (or at least not so much or frequently), but this is one flavored tea that does not need any sugar at all to bring out the flavors.

But cinnamon sugar raisin toast is oh so good! Even I would add sugar to this lol- Raw? Brown?

Banana flavor still present in the second steep….

This is a delightful banana flavored tea. The banana flavor is natural and light . The oolong is mildly vegetative but not overly so. The tea ‘s has a lite flavor. And even better news: no sugar at at all is needed to bring out the banana flavors. The vendor claimed cocoa powder was added but I did not detect any chocolate flavor. Hmmm..maybe Dr.Tea’s mocha tea blended w/this one would be delicious.

Cofftea

Coffee and banana? Not for me, but go for it!:)

Lori

Hmmm good point- yes mocha= chocolate + coffee . I forgot about the coffee part of the mocha. I’ll give it a try though…

First, I have to admit I have been steeping this one too long. The consensus is 1 min and I have been steeping for 3 mins! Luckily my tea did not go bitter……the overall taste is a pleasant smokiness. Not a burn your mouth w a campfire tar taste like some lapsang souchongs but subtle and pleasant. As the tea cooled, some cocoa notes were detected which took me off guard. I want to try this tea again w shorter steep times and maybe it will be even better.

If you are a lover of semi-sweet chocolate- well more like a Lindt chocolate bar with 70% or maybe even 90% cocoa, then this is a tea for you. This vendor roasts his own oolongs like a coffee beans and then sprinkles the roasted oolong w/cocoa powder, to give this a bitter sweet chocolate flavor. Not sure if the chocolate flavor will remain present in multiple steepings but the first steep is wonderful.

cody

Oh, wow. That sounds good.

Cofftea

I can vouch that it’s AMAZING!

Ohhh Noooo! I have another tea on my wishlist (lol)
I am sure I would like this tea (note to self order tea)

Cofftea

Pages2Read- might as well put ALL the teas in the series on your wishlist: caramel latTEA, chai latTEA, coffee oolong, and espresso oolong. =D

Pages2Read while sipping tea

LauraR

Bio

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
