56 Tasting Notes
Not my favorite black or my favorite Rishi, but a decent cup a tea. It’s a pretty complex flavor for black tea. The flavor is somewhere between nutty and smokey. I think. It’s a bit hard to describe. I always drink this with a slice of lemon because it tastes like it needs something.
This is my favorite rooibos. It’s light and mellow but really well-rounded. I wouldn’t say it tastes like key lime but I just enjoy the mix of flavors.
There are a few flavors that I really dislike and pineapple is one of them. But I was possessed the day I bought this. Turned out I actually kind of liked it. I can drink it when I’m in the right mood. The pineapple somehow melds really well with the other flavors. Not sure what other flavors are in there though. Mango? Orange?
I grab this sometimes because it’s convenient and has no sugar. Something that’s hard to find in bottled teas. The taste is a bit bitter, but it’s drinkable. I also wonder why the ingredient to balance acidity isn’t listed. Why be so cryptic?
This is one of my favorite black teas. I know a black tea is exceptionally good when I don’t even want to put lemon in it and I love the lemon/black tea taste so much.
The word that comes to mind for this tea is crisp. It’s refreshing and bright.
For some reason I always have to steep this one way longer than the brewing suggestions.
I’d say it’s an ok tea. The dried leaves have a strong aroma but the flavor is more mild. It’s a good fruity base for blending with other teas. By itself it sometimes tastes like it’s missing something.
I found the flavors in this oolong the ones I like the least (i.e., cinnamon, pineapple.) I mixed the few teaspoons I had left with a few teaspoons I had of Sweet Fruit Garden, an herbal blend. I was hoping to cut down on the flavors I don’t like so much and increase the ones I like more such as berries. And this is a recommended blend by the company. But now it just tastes like Christmas in my mouth. Would be spectacular after some wassailing but not exactly what I’m looking for on a morning in August.
This used to be great. But six months to a year ago the company changed its formula and now this is undrinkable. It’s all kinds of off. The flavors don’t mesh well together and the aftertaste could not be worse. Doesn’t even taste like the same beverage. Too bad.
