12 Tasting Notes

91
drank Paris by Harney & Sons
12 tasting notes

All of the Harney & Sons Teas are absolutely brilliant and this one is no exception! This tea really does taste like Paris (the good parts anyways :) ). It’s a fragrant Black Tea flavoured with Black Currant and Vanilla—it’s sweet, mellow and rich. To me there’s a pleasant Violet note as well.

drank White Ambrosia by Tea Forte
12 tasting notes

I received a box of this tea as a gift and I was quite taken with both the presentation (tall, pyramid shaped “bags” with a little wire leaf on top) as well as with the taste—sweet and mellow—a perfect winter evening tea. At $40 a box, I wouldn’t purchase it again myself as there are even more enjoyable teas in this range, but another box would be a welcome gift.

drank Rose Scented by Harney & Sons
12 tasting notes

I just received this tea today after much anticipation and it’s divine (as all of the teas I’ve tried so far from Harney are)! It’s beautifully fragrant (apparently with natural rose essential oil) and a very delicate rose flavour infuses the tea—it’s not over-powering—the rose flavour enhances the tea flavour very nicely. There is absolutely no bitterness when brewed as directed.

drank MateVana by Teavana
12 tasting notes

I tried this cocoa-y Mate a few years ago after I became hooked on The Tea Emporium’s version, which is very similar (and less expensive).

While I do enjoy this one’s smooth creamy, chocolate-y taste (with or without the addition of milk and honey), I find the cocoa flavour to be a tad overpowering and gasp artificial tasting. I do however, still enjoy this Mate and the energy it gives!

drank Kombucha Lime by The Tea Emporium

This green tea is very fruity and fresh as its name implies! It’s very sunny tasting and a wonderful pick-me-up.

This is a great widely available tea that’s perfect for Autumn days! I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth this tea is.

drank Genmaicha by DAVIDsTEA
12 tasting notes

I echo the sentiments of so many other Steepsters—the Genmaicha from DavidsTea is perfection!

I use a French Press and will add water to the leaves up to three times—this tea is soothing, sweet, nutty, delicate and absolutely wonderful with sushi, fish, rice dishes and on its own.

drank Cream of Avalon by The Tea Emporium
12 tasting notes

Smooth and buttery—I think it’s wonderful, but it does get bitter quickly. Maybe it’s a big faux-pas, but I do really enjoy this one with milk and honey, especially in the early Autumn.
