58 Tasting Notes
I received a small sample of this tea in a little plastic baggy and could smell the coconut through the bag. The smell is amazing!
Unfortunately, I only had enough for one cup. The tea is more fragrant than flavorful and all I really smell once it’s brewed is coconut. It’s not bad but it’s lacking and tastes very one-sided. Will try hotter water next time.
I got this as part of a tea swap and it’s not something I normally pick. I’m always looking to try new things, so I was pretty excited about this one.
The smell of this tea in the bag was pretty gross to me and I described it to my boyfriend as smelling like a “sick orange”. Once it was steeping, the smell mellowed a bit and reminded me of an oatmeal bath.
My first sip – I made a face much like the little red guy in the Steepster rating system. I am not a fan of the flavors. I’m not sure if it’s the licorice or one of the other ingredients in this tea but it is VERY naturally sweet. It coats your tongue with sweetness and spice. It’s not unpleasant but licorice is not my favorite flavor so I probably won’t be drinking this one ever again.
Had this with my vegan lunch today. The smell of this tea is intoxicating! It’s definitely perfect for fall and I need all I can to get in the autumn mood, seeing as how it’s 85 degrees in Florida… Anyway, this tea is really good and I love that it’s herbal, so I can drink it before bed time!
Comforting and mellow. Nicely balanced, no flavor takes over.
Mmmm! I added a little bit of strawberry juice and sugar to this today to eat with my home made strawberry ice cream. I think I like the tea better!
Very nice floral flavor. I was surprised at how light this was. Usually floral teas are overpowering but this is very nice and balanced.
I love this tea. The chocolate goes perfectly with the Puerh. It’s a deep, rich and earthy flavor that’s perfect with breakfast or as a bedtime snack (if you can stand the caffeine).
I’m not exactly sure what to say about this one. It’s minty and very sweet. It’s hard to say if the Gunpowder adds anything special. It’s very good as far as mint teas go, though.
The black tea in this blend is very strong, while the orange and vanilla flavors take a back seat. A little sweetener (I used agave nectar) brings the orange flavors right to the front and makes this tea a wonderful iced tea.
