271 Tasting Notes
Earl Grey Oolong is one of my favourite teas for blending, not necessarily to drink by itself.
However it is not too bad by itself for people like me who aren’t very fond of earl grey in general, because the oolong leaves and the jasmine softens the intensity of that classic earl grey taste. There is also a citrus note in the background.
This is probably the only earl grey tea I would ever drink, and it blends fantastically with any fruity tea!
It is fruity, tangy, spicy (that cinnamon type of spicy) and sweet, altogether in one cup! The hibiscus is not all that obvious, it is overpowered by the tanginess. It has the perfect amount of sweetness to go with the very slight spice. I just really love the combinations of ingredients in this tea.
I would recommend it to all you fruity-tea lovers!
There is the perfect amount of sweetness from the mango, I think the chamomile helps to balance out all the fruity flavours, so that they aren’t so overpowering or too sweet. It also seems to bit a bit creamy; I love creamy teas! It is not particularly weak or strong, great as an iced tea, and hot as well. It’s so refreshing and really hits the spot when you’re thirsty :)
I also like this tea because doesn’t get too sweet or tangy if you let it steep for too long. It just stays the same (probably because it is an herbal infusion); it could probably steep all day!
I’m not quite understanding why it’s called sugar and spice. It should be called tea and spice! That’s all there is in there basically. This tea is not the least bit sweet. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a great tea, but the name is misleading! So anyways, this is a fantastic blend with all of those autumn spices like cinnamon and cloves. It has a nice black tea base. And that’s pretty much it! It’s a very simple tea, and the spices aren’t too strong; so if you like those spices you’ll love this tea :)
Have you guys ever tried chocolate covered coffee beans? (If not, you really should) This is exactly what this tea tastes like! There is also a slight sweetness from the berries, which just brings the coffee and chocolate together because it is not tangy at all (That wouldn’t go well with this tea anyways). Mate is a good base for this tea because the pure mate tea flavour goes great with the other flavours and give the tea a good flavour balance.
I think this is a great tea for fall, and also a good morning tea, because there’s lots of caffeine in there :)
It blends well with coffee chai
I was so Excited to try this tea because its base is mulberry leaves, just like my most favorite tea in the world : Mulberry Magic! The two teas have similar ingredients, so I decided to do a side-by-side taste test to see if I could taste the difference.
And indeed there is a difference. This tea is creamier and the chamomile is very subtle in the background, and that masks the mulberry leaf flavor (a little bit), which is what I like the most. I’m not saying this is a bad tea, it’s great, it really is I enjoyed it so much in fact, I will have to stock up before fall ends!
They might as well call it apple tea, because the apple flavor is so overpowering that it’s almost unpleasant, and the longer you let it steep, the worse it gets. It just gets more and more sour/tangy. I didn’t taste anything else (there isn’t much else in it anyways). Yeah, I’m not too crazy about this tea, I wish there was less apple flavor and more cinnamon and green tea flavors in it.
Looking at the ingredients, I guess the goal was to make this tea taste like chocolate and coffee. It kind of worked! It tastes more like mate tea mixed with coffee and the chocolate flavor, is more like carob, but there is a slight sweetness that brings those flavors together. I must admit, that it has a great tea body that is smooth and very satisfying.
I didn’t think it was possible to have a tea that tastes like red velvet cake, but this one is closer than I thought it would be. It tastes mostly like chocolate cake. It’s also really sweet from the sprinkles, balanced out by the bitterness of the black tea, it’s just perfect.
So yes, here we finally have a tea that lives up to its name. It’s very satisfying and different, which is why I love it!
I have always been disappointed with most of the strawberry-flavored teas that I’ve tried. However, this one is fantastic! It has a very natural (as opposed to artificial) strawberry taste, with a very slight tangy note. I wouldn’t say it is particularly creamy, but the vanilla adds a wonderful and subtle sweetness to the tea. It’s fantastic.
