6 Tasting Notes
If you like sweet white chocolate and matcha tea, you will like this. I’ve been addicted to matcha smoothies lately – so much so that my little jar that was full about two days ago is now nearly empty. I went to replenish my stash at David’s and as I was waiting to pay I decided to take the plunge and grab a couple chocolate bars – this one for me and a different one for the mister (who has yet to try his). I think it’s creamy and I full of tea flavour. Could it be less sweet? Yes…but then again white chocolate is always on the very sweet side. It hit the spot to satisfy my dessert craving and I will likely buy another one when I’m feeling rich. They’re kind of expensive..that’s the only downside really.
This tea is pretty good. Very citrusy, and I can really taste the ginseng and ginger in it. I find it odd (especially for an oolong/pu’erh based tea) that this one doesn’t re-steep very well – I find that you get only one really good infusion for it which is too bad. :(
My brother and sister-in-law picked this one up for me as a Christmas present. It smells beautiful – nice and fruity. However, I don’t like my teas to be overly floral tasting and the lavender in this one shines through in taste (where it doesn’t in scent). Not a terrible tea, but definitely not my favorite.
I picked up this tea after a night of eating too much bratwurst and schnitzel…needless to say my tummy wasn’t feeling great. While I give kudos to this tea for making me feel much better, I wasn’t crazy about the taste OR the smell and I can’t get past it. I do enjoy ginger, but I think in this tea it was much too overpowering. I’m not normally a fan of stevia because of its aftertaste but there wasn’t much of one with this tea which was nice. I ended up giving this one away to a friend just because I know I won’t get around to drinking it. :(
I was intrigued by the Wellness teas and wanted to try a couple. This was the first one I picked up and I have to say I was in love at first smell. It’s very fruity, sweet (and a bit tart at the same time), and tasted almost the same as it smells. It reminds me of a favorite childhood candy of mine because of the hawthorne berry (hawflakes – super tasty candy).
