This almost reminds me of a yellow curry dish that I buy sometimes. There’s no curry, but a lot of the other ingredients in that dish are in here (ginger, lemongrass, coconut). I don’t know if I will reorder this one, but I will certainly be finishing the bag in some capacity. I can imagine this would be delicious iced.
83 Tasting Notes
This does not taste like a pu’erh, and for me that’s not a bad thing. I like the bg fruit pieces and the softness of the white chocolate. This would probably make a great base for a tropical smoothie. I may or may not reorder this, but I’m certainly not disappointed.
I thought, based on its description, that I would not like this blend. That all changed when I smelled it and tasted it for the first time. It smells like a red starburst candy, and the taste is mostly fruity with a touch of amaretto.
This reminds me of a stronger Super Chocolate… I like it, but I probably won’t reorder it.
This one is hands-down my favorite tea from the spring collection. I have been having at least one cup of this a day (either straight up or blended with some other fruity tea). I hope this one stays permanently.
I always thought that I’d never like this tea. I tried it once a while ago back when it was Almond Biscotti, and I did not like it. I liked it a lot this time around, but I may never drink this tea without milk/cream, since I believe that’s what was missing. The addition of candied violets gives the liquor a slight tinge of purple (not so much so as Lavender Dreams). I got nice hints of rose, and, of course, almonds.
I had been hesitant to try this one for a while, and I’m glad I finally tried it! This is one of the best white teas I’ve purchased from DT.
I don’t taste a whole lot of banana here, but it’s still a great tea.
This one reminds me of an old SpecialTeas blend (White Chocolate Moon). It’s almost exactly the same, so it’s nice finally finding a replacement for a long-discontinued tea.
Out of the 4 blends I bought at Tealuxe in Cambridge, MA last sprig, this one has to be my favorite. It’s a nice blend of fruits, and a balance of sweet and tart.
This tea has grown on me somewhat. I am not huge on chai, but sometimes it hits the spot. This one is lighter on the spice with some notes of pumpkin.
This was the 2nd tea my aunt brought back for me from Benalmádena, Spain. This one is light on the flavor,so you get the tea as well as the cherry. They also have some amazing flavors on their website, such as Té verde champan con fresas (Champagne and Strawberry Green Tea), that I want to order!
My aunt recently came back from her trip to Spain, and I had asked her before leaving to pick up some loose teas for me if she could find them. Among the many teterías and tea shops she found, she got me two teas from the town she was staying in mostly (Benalmádena).
I like this tea, because it is simple, yet strong in flavor. The chili was what I noticed first, but the the cherry came into the picture soon thereafter. I may be able to find this one stateside due to the simplicity of the blend, but I will hopefully be ordering some more of their teas once I find out how many limbs it will cost me to have it shipped from Spain.
This tea pretty much tastes like a cocktail. It has a sort of ‘fizzy’ note along with a Cranberry/Pineapple flavor. It’s not bad.
I was given some of this by a coworker of mine, and I like it somewhat. The pear is very nice, but there’s something tart in the overall taste that I’m not ultra-crazy about.
I know several people who had mixed thoughts on this one, and I wasn’t so sure about this one based on the description myself. This one has a lot going on, but overall the flavor is pleasant.
I expected a lot from this, and I enjoy this for the most part. The only part I don’t enjoy is the liquorice root. Those notes tend to disappear when I blend this with another tea.
This blend has a nice balance between citrus and spice. It’s not my most favorite from the new teas, but it is one I’ll probably have around just in case I’m in the mod for it.
No notes yet.
Out of all the new teas, this one ranks somewhere in the middle for me. It has a pleasant melon flavor with an almost bubblegum-like aroma (in the loose leaves and the liquor). I may or may not bring this one home again.
This one isn’t bad. I was expecting this to be heavier on the mint (it was a pleasant surprise that it wasn’t, for me anyways). I like the cooling feeling that the mint and eucalyptus provide. I think this would be a very pleasant iced tea.
This s my favorite from the new collection of teas. It has a nice balance between the fruity and the champagne/floral tastes. I have been able to reuse the leaves several times and get very close to the same flavor.
This is amazing!!! The spice gives it a nice, toasty sensation. I may try this blended with a chocolate tea.
This isn’t bad. It’s kinda reminiscent of red velvet cake. It probably doesn’t help when there are actual red velvet cupcakes in the house…
