369 Tasting Notes
New teas today!! Super exciting tea tasting happening at our place this evening. I was apprehensive, but I loved this tea! The fruit flavour it really highlighted by the earthiness on the rice. It reminds me a tiny bit of the Strawberry Pariso (which has popcorn in it). But this has such a wonderful, juicy fruity flavour to go with the rice. I can see myself drinking this one often, it is wonderful!
Loved this tea! I was told it was very close to Starbucks Passion Tea, and so it was! Tropical with fruity and floral nots, I liked it both cold an hot. I did notice that, since the petals take a bit of space in the scoop, you need to make sure you give it enough leaf. That being said, another hardy blend that can steep indefinitely and a new favourite of mine!
This one does not seem to be a popular blend, but I actually really liked it. I am a pineapple nut, but eating it totally makes my mouth hurt, so this was a great way to get my pineapple kick in without any negative side effects. It tastes a bit like a tropical blend that is heavy on the pineapple. Very nice to just leave to steep and sip on throughout the day. I do tend to prefer a lot of David’s Teas blends, but Teavanna does some mean fruit blends, in my opinion.
I have this steeping in a tea traveler on the way to a workshop today. I was a little concerned because this mug just linf of let’s the tea free steep, this far the leaves are holding up really well though. The vegetal flavour is becoming very apparent, but I actually really like the taste of the mulberry leaves. We shall see how this holds out throughout the rest of the morning!
I was pleasantly surprised by this tea! I had never tried a honeybush based tea and I was unsure what it would taste like. To my surprise, it was nicely mild and sweet. I got slight hints of lemon and ginger which melded with the honeybush to make for a really nice mellow tea! I was very impressed this this tea. It is not something I would reach for every day, but it is a nice change for once in a while!
I love coconut and I love raspberry, so I was rather committed to liking this tea. However, having tried it again I am somewhat surprised by the strength of the astingincy of the black tea base. I gave this a really short steep time, but that black tea turned bitter really quickly. It is actually too bad, I love the promised flavours in the tea, but I am a little put off by how bitter it can wind up being in my mouth…
I was wondering if this tea was listed on Steepster! I really enjoyed the sample of it that I received. For me, the mind was definitely the more dominant flavour, but it’s inherent harshness was really nicely balanced out by the coconut and the caramel undertones. I really liked this tea and I am curious to see what final name and description they settle on. For me, it is a tea I look forward to being able to drink again!
I really liked this tea! It reminded me of the strong berry flavour that you find in teas like Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait from Davids Tea, but this time it was a more cranberry influenced taste. I am not sure how much of the pomegranate I got, maybe enough to make this taste more like a berry cocktail and less like straight cranberry juice? Either way, a good tea and I look forward to trying it out chilled!
