671 Tasting Notes


I am not sure at all what the name of this tea is but it is from L’Angelica Istituto Erboristico. The best I can tell from using Translate is that it is an Italian company involved in healthy solutions for living. :)

JanieTeo sent this in the Christmas card swap. Her note on the package said “lavender, damiana and wild rose.” It smells heavenly. The taste is sweet, floral and fruity. I would guess this is a tisane. It is one that I would love to keep on hand if I ran across it somewhere. Very good!

Sounds delicious :


Wow, that sounds lovely. I’m not the biggest fan of lavender, but I’m sure the other flavors balance it.


It is really a very nice tisane. I am not a huge fan of lavender most times, but this did not seem to me to be very strongly lavender. I don’t know that I’ve had anything with damiana before. It has fruit that is supposed to be similar to figs and sometimes is compared to chamomile as their essential oils are similar. I don’t notice any fig notes, but could see the chamomile connection.

This was just odd. There were nice fruity notes but then a smoke smell to it that killed it for me. This was woody and dusty, which I usually like, but then that smoke… not so much a smoke taste as a smoke smell. As it cooled I also picked up what I think were spice notes. Thanks for the sample, Ost!

This was sent to me by cookielady in the Christmas card swap. It is a dry, strong tea. I didn’t get any notes that stood out but it took cream very well. It would probably be quite good with sugar or honey as well.

Can’t believe I haven’t had this before. Hm. Since the white tea isn’t very strongly flavored, the bergamot really comes to the forefront and pops up in your face. This is a super highly perfumed tea. I generally like EGs but I also like to taste tea with them. I don’t think I’d choose a white EG over a black, based on this experience. Thanks for the sample, cookielady!

As before, non-specific fruit and honey. This time I got some vanilla as well. I had this on my wishlist, but having had it again, I don’t think I’d keep it in my cupboard over other fruity blacks that I can’t identify the fruit in. :) Thanks for sending it my way, cookielady!

A pleasant, honest, strong Assam that turns a bit bitter if oversteeped. This is a good thick, milk and sugar Assam. Thanks, Ost!

This smelled like wine and chocolate. After steeping it smelled like hot cocoa and coffee beans. 2 1/2 minutes was either far too long or I used far too much leaf. This was really bitter. I tried adding sugar to see if it would level out the bitterness somewhat but no luck. It just turned odd. Thanks for the sample, NayLynn!

Maybe it was just my imagination but the scent of this was very strongly milk chocolate. :) Taste was a a bit non-specifically fruity. The wet leaves smelled of wine. And I poured some into a clean paper cup to test the milk chocolate thing I don’t think I was crazy -this smells like a Hershey bar! :) I might quite like to have this on hand some day. Thanks for the sample, Ost!

Wow, this is not my thing. I like the idea but the red rooibos kills it for me. it has that medicinal cough syrup taste all over the base. Also, while this is super gingery, it is too fruity to be a chai I like. Thanks for letting me try it, NayLynn!

This smells like something baked that has raisins in it. The taste is sweetish with toasty grains. This is very good. Thanks, Ost!
