9 Tasting Notes
This tea is so juicy! I love it! My favorite thing to do with it is mix it with jasmine green tea and add honey.
This smells and tastes like a spa. I love cardamom in perfume, and it turns out I love it in tea, too! Everything goes so well together in this blend. It’s very relaxing. I just wish I could taste the seaweed a little more!
I absolutely love how this smells like kettle corn. My only complaint is that the apple takes over the taste of this blend just a little too much. I’m gonna try blending it with a genmaicha of some kind. I have a gyokuro genmaicha and a genmai hojicha coming my way!
I’m so relieved that this doesn’t taste like chai. I’ve tried to like chai. I’ve tried very hard. I just can’t do it! This is more like a vanilla/clove/orange. No cinnamon! :) Doesn’t need any sweetening in my opinion.
Smells amazingly cake batter-like. Tastes like typical honeybush. That’s it! Not worth it to me!
Also, all those sprinkles still will not make this tea remotely sweet. So expect to have to sweeten it unless you like plain honeybush!
I’ve only tried this hot so far, sweetened and unsweetened. Adding rock sugar just makes it taste fake, so don’t do it the first time you are trying this! I much prefer it without sugar. It lets the floral oolong smells and flavors come out much more and stand up well with the pineapple. The liquor is a gorgeous, sunny, perfectly clear gold. The leaves are pretty too! They unfurl and look so perfectly whole. Upon second steeping, the pineapple flavor will be pretty much completely gone, but that lets you taste the good quality (I think) oolong they used for this blend!
Awesome tea. I was worried it would be really weak as some of their herbals tend to be. I kind of wish it was a little saltier. It seems like the salt floats to the top and then for the rest of your cup it’s not very salty at all. I still really love it though!
Oh I love this so much. You know how the best desserts have just a touch of saltiness in them? Yeah. This has that. It’s somehow sweet without any added sugar and it has such a great creamy mouthfeel. Can’t confidently comment on the quality of the black tea itself because I have an inexperienced palate, but I can say I like how it tastes!
