65 Tasting Notes
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.
Usually, I don’t get rooibos. It’s not bad, it’s just not exciting to me. This one is nice, though. It’s smooth, sweet, maple-y (yay!) and there’s no woody taste!
I am really, really impressed with this! I don’t usually like herbal teas – they wind up being too tart – but this is nice and sweet and smooth. I may have to invest in a tin…
At first I wasn’t too sure how the orange and mint would cooperate, but it was actually quite nice. Refreshing, and I’m hoping I can try it iced soon.
I think I got some of the last in the canister – my leaves are quite small. Nevertheless, the taste is really nice. With milk and sugar it reminds me of some type of candy or snack. Dry, the raspberry comes through most, but steeped the coconut comes out a bit more. There isn’t as much raspberry as I thought there would be, but it works nicely with the coconut to keep things from being too tart or too smooth.
So far, the first oolong I’ve liked! I think the fruit really works with it nicely. Not much to say but hom nom nom.
I love me my fruity teas. :P
Fruity with a mild tea flavour. Nice with some sweetener and milk, especially as a first-thing-in-the-morning tea.
