212 Tasting Notes
I had high hopes for this tea. The leaves smell very good.
I found that upon brewing the flavor didn’t equate to the scent of the tea leaves. I can taste a hint of cinnamon and cardamom. I was surprised the rooibos didn’t present stronger.
I found a strange after taste with this. I can’t really put my finger on what it is but I definitely don’t expect to encounter it while sipping tea.
I found this tea too tame for the ingredients listed. I would suggest it to someone who wants a mellow tea to relax with in the evening.
This is one of my favorites. None of the flavors over powers any of the others. Coconut, vanilla and chocolate are a very good mix in my opinion. It is also very creamy.
The rooibos and Nilgiri compliment each other well.
Very nice dessert tea.
I bought this tea to blend with a couple others in my quest of replacing the old Thai tea from Teavana. This tea is good enough on it’s own though.
It is definitely a coconut tea. What I really enjoy about this one is that it actually tastes of real coconuts. Perhaps the flakes are responsible.
The tea base is a bit woody but very mellow. It just pops up to let you know it’s there.
There is a creamy taste as well. Maybe those coconut flakes again.
Over all a good tea that isn’t very complicated. It tastes exactly like it should.
This tea is pretty hard to explain for me. There some complex flavors in it I may not have encountered before. I do enjoy it and would like to keep it stocked.
I notice strawberry first. Immediately after I identified strawberry, I found a tartness I can not relate to in any other of my experiences. It may be the strawberry bits. There is a spice taste that is reminiscent of cinnamon. I don’t think it is cinnamon though. There is crisp flavor I lack the vocabulary to describe.
I may not have encountered it before. There is a pleasant after taste of strawberry lip gloss.
I find this tea light, fruity and very mysterious. I should rename it pixie or fairy tea.
I’m a big fan of the rooibos and honeybush teas. I really love vanilla too. I didn’t pick up the vanilla so much in this tea. It does have a creamy taste to it. It has the spicy residual flavor I expect from rooibos or honeybush.
I definitely taste the mint in this tea. Having said that, I think the mint is an extract. It has a funny almost medicinal flavor. I smell the cocoa more than taste it. It’s there just not in the same strength as the mint. Not a bad tea but I like my Moroccan Mint much better.
A friend gave us this tea to try and I’m so glad she did. I am really disappointed to learn it was discontinued. I have looked many places trying to find a replacement, but have failed so far.
I think the black and rooibos teas balance each other out especially when combined with the coconut, almonds and vanilla. Sweet, smooth and mellow. I really enjoy this tea.
I was excited to try an orange spice since my fiance really enjoys it. We bought a pound of it off of amazon to our disappointment.
I had a hard time picking up the orange flavor. There was a bitterness that may have been orange peel. I also picked up a candy taste for lack of a better term. Like the old christmas candy in the paper bags with out the peppermint. I failed to pick up any spice in it.
Again more of that lovely cinnamon, with an interesting orange note. A nice tea to snuggle up with on a cold day.
With my first steeping I pick up pineapple and cinnamon. It always reminds me of the ewoks except they are little cinnamon bears dancing around.
My second steeping I could detect the cardamom and anise I believe. It still tastes mostly of pineapple and cinnamon with the cinnamon being the strongest flavor.
I think this is one of the best teas to wake up to in the morning. It will definitely perk a person up.
