This is lovely, sweet, and fruity. The strawberry is nice and natural – not artificial at all – and the brittle adds a nice subtle nutty flavour.
65 Tasting Notes
A nice, delicate tea, but there’s not as much peach flavour as I had hoped for.
Add milk and sugar, and it tastes like hugs. This is the most comforting tea in my cupboard, and the one I usually reach for most.
I think I need to try this stronger. I steeped it as I do all my black teas, and added milk and sugar. Unfortunately, it’s kind of weak and while it has the potential to be a lovely spicy tea with some vanilla, it falls flat.
I tried this iced, and sweetened with agave syrup. It’s nice. Next I may try it with regular sugar.
I’m glad the hibiscus isn’t stupid overpowering, but I’m wanting a bit more fruity flavour to it.
This is really, really good. The pear makes it fruity, the cranberry keeps it from being too sweet. It’s lovely and autumnal and satisfying.
Nice, light, and fruity. There’s a strange artificial aftertaste, though.
When I first had this tea, I think I steeped it too long and got too much carob in the scoop, because it was SUPER strong and slightly bitter. The second time around I steeped it for less time and added half a scoop of orange pekoe to even out the carob-ness.
Much better. :)
Not bad, considering I don’t like ginger all that much. However, something falls flat. Also, STOP PUTTING HIBISCUS IN TEA. Augh it’s gross.
Very, very tart. I had this when I was sick with a terrible cold and loaded it up with honey, but can’t really remember what I thought of it. Some of my friends tried it plain, and said it was way too hibiscus-tart. :(
This is much better than I thought it would be! I’m normally not a fan of rooibos, and thought the jellybeans would be gimmicky, but overall this is very nice. Fruity and light, and very appropriate for spring time. :)
This cuppa smells like butter and caramel, which is kind of awesome. The taste is much more apple-y, with a popcorn taste. At the back there’s some smoothness. I wish the caramel/maple was more prominent in the steeped tea, but the tea is pretty good overall.
Dry, this tea smells a bit terrifying – it has a strange chemical, plastic smell to it. I bought a small sample when the salesperson assured me it steeped out better, and she was right. When steeped, the ginger, cardamom, and peppermint shine through some more. There’s a strange bitterness in the back of my mouth after a sip, though, which is weirdly medicinal to me.
Overall, better than I thought it would be, but not something I’ll drink again.
I held off on trying this until I got a sample in an online order, which I gave to my sister-in-law. She really liked it, so I bought a bit to try last time I was in the shop. Surprisingly, I like it – I was afraid it would be too herbal/medicinal, but it’s quite nice and light, with some citrus and ginger tang.
Spicy, apple-y goodness. <3 So glad I had 50g of this shipped to my house while I was in Greece. XD
I couldn’t find my scoop so I wound up dumping all the tea in the bottom of the bag in, and it came out as dark as coffee. XD Unfortunately, it’s quite strong and a little bitter. Still lovely and tasty, though, and better than when it was too weak.
Bumping the rating a bit.
Yes, it’s true. Dry, this tea smells TERRIBLE. Steeped, it’s fruity in a weird way, and the citrus and cinnamon along with the fig are kind of… fresh. I can’t describe it. XD The actual tea flavour is very weak, and the colour was very pale despite steeping according to directions.
Nice tea. The flavour isn’t too strong, but it’s warm and smooth.
I can’t quite place what this tastes like. It’s kind of sweet and spicy with a strange, smooth aftertaste.
It’s not bad, but it’s not memorable enough for me to stock up on.
I was a bit afraid of how this tea smelled dry – very strong, almost synthetic, almond scent. Steeped it’s much better, and I like that there’s no rooibos woodiness. However, I’m not picking up on much fruit, and the spices are very subtle. I may try another steep with a more representative scoop and see if that helps. :P
Oh, this is niiiiice. I’ve never had a pu-ehr before because it kind of scared me, but this is really good. I think next time I make it I’ll have to add more tea leaves, though, because it’s quite weak with how much I added.
Well, it’s certainly not like a cup of hot cocoa, as DavidsTea claims. :P That’s okay, though, because it’s light, sweet, and smooth (thanks to the coconut), but a fairly unique tea thanks to the blend of black and white. Tasty.
