1000 Tasting Notes
I took this as my tea of the day to work this morning and it was absolutely delicious!! I love the toasted coconut flavor and aroma of this tea. I am quite fond of the tea base used also, it is very smooth which blends well with the coconut. I really think this smells like GM’s Coconut Pouchong, but I like this WAY better!
A big thank you to JacquelineM for sending me a sample of this tea! It will now have to go on my shopping list.
Another tea from the box of goodies courtesy of JacquelineM! This is a greatly blended floral tea. I love how the jasmine and rose mix together while not clashing with the bergamot. Everything is just perfectly girly and perfect for a relaxing evening.
I needed a tea to help me get through the remainder of my homework today so I reached for one of my new favorites – courtesy of the amazing JacquelineM! I have to admit I was a bit surprised that she decided to share a bit of her main man with me, but I am sure glad that she did. I am taking this pot without additions and Thomas is strong, yet smooth. I am enjoying the rich, honey covered biscuit flavor of Thomas today and I am still not finding any astringency. I wish I had got on board with Thomas earlier when I could have secured an entire tin for myself. But since that was not meant to be, I’ll be cherishing what is left of my sample on special occasions.
The only tea that I could think of tonight was Vanilla Comoro. I finally drank enough out of my very firmly packed pound bag to be able to shake up the leaves a bit. I was looking for the mysterious specks that JacquelineM has been raving about. To be honest, I wasn’t even sure what she was talking about, until I saw the specks!! I made sure to include a good amount of specks in my measuring spoon and I was rewarded handsomely for my efforts. The tea seems to have even more vanilla and is even richer than before. The specks really do make a big difference – I would never have guessed that!
There is just so much vanilla in this tonight! I even added a small amount of my favorite dark chocolate creamer for fun – fully expecting the chocolate to take over. However, the vanilla is definitely overpowering the chocolate! I am in vanilla heaven! Okay, I need to attend to this delicious pot of tea now!
I needed a nice, interesting tea to help me finish up my homework for the week. Fortunately, this tea sounded like just the thing – and I’m fortunate to have received a sample of this from the wonderful JacquelineM! I honestly did not think this tea would be so nicely flavored, but I guess that I should have expected nothing less from 52teas. The brewed tea is a very murky brown which I’m assuming stems from the melted white chocolate chips. I added a small amount of sugar to help bring out the flavor of the white chocolate, but I think the tea would have been just fine without that addition. The flavor of the cashews is the most prominent taste with the white chocolate following through the aftertaste. There is also a slight astringency which reminds me of the dryness associated with eating nuts. Overall, I’m very happy with this tea and glad to have the chance to try yet another winner from 52teas.
I have been wanting to make chai for the past couple of weeks so I went ahead and ordered a pouch of this since it is one of the most balanced chai blends I’ve tried. This morning I made a big stovetop batch of this and wow!! It is super spicy, but super good! The chocolate is stronger than I expected, but still not as strong as the spices. I bet adding a bit of my favorite dark chocolate creamer would be awesome with this tea! The cayenne kick is just what I needed to help me wake up today!
This tea smells awesome from the pouch, very juicy and tart. I was pleasantly surprised by this tea! Even though it is a white tea and therefore on the lighter side of the tea spectrum, the tea is quite flavorful and delicious. I am enjoying a big mug of this hot with just a tad of sweetener to bring out the fruity sweetness. I really think this tea would be AMAZING iced though! I don’t know if the tea will ever make it to cold temps though, it is so good as is hot! Another winner from 52teas!
I am so glad to see this tea on the Permanent Collection! I tried this tea a little over a year ago from the generous Doulton but at the time it was still a long sold out limited edition tea! The best part? Not only does it taste better than I remember, but I also received 2 other teas from 52teas in the mail today!
I added just a bit of sugar and a small splash of Dark Chocolate Breve Cream and this tea is crazy good tonight!
I fell in love with this decaf tea after trying one of Harney’s sachets. However, I wanted the loose leaf form so I sprung for a pound of this beauty. From what I remember, the loose leaf has a much stronger caramel scent, seriously yummy. I almost took a spoon and ate the leaves before steeping. I also remember this having significantly less vanilla in the sachet form. This tea is just so awesome! Don’t get me wrong, I love honeybush, rooibos, and herbals, but sometimes I want a REAL, fortifying tea in the evenings. This tea nicely fits the bill while allowing me to sleep easily.
