28 Tasting Notes
I adore this with cream. I think it tastes most chocolatey after it has cooled off, so I think I’ll try steeping it at 200F instead of boiling next time. Ordered a large quantity today because it’s all gone sob. Bumping up the rating bc I’ve fallen even more in love.
Lovely. Nutty, vegetal but not overly so, mildly grassy, lovely smell, slightly sweet. Everything a Dragonwell should be.
Wow, this is great! Pineapple & coconut mixed together beautifully. I love this with a bit of cream, hot or iced it’s great both ways! It smells very strong, the flavor isn’t as powerful as the smell but that’s alright. It’s still delicious. My first attempt at iced tea & I think it turned out pretty nice. Will buy again in large quantities.
Wow is this tart! My friend loved this tea straight, & so it will be her birthday present this year. I cut the recommended amount in half per instructions from another Steeepster here, & added a little rock sugar. Much better. It’s a weird mix due to the cinnamon at play with all of the floral notes, but it works out alright for me if sweetened. Probably would make a nice iced tea, but again I’m not sure how the cinnamon would affect it.
The first chocolate tea that I actually think tastes chocolatey! I mean, it’s not going to be the same as taking a bite of real chocolate, but this is good! Had it without cream or sweetener & it was lovely, but I’ll probably add creamer next time for the mouthfeel.
I’ll admit that I was majorly turned off by the smell, both dry & steeped. It had a weird coffee-y smell, & I don’t really like coffee unless it’s a mocha. However, this tastes nice. I guess it’s what coffee tastes like without the bitter kick. Very mellow, the coffee beans & mate blend nicely. Has a coffee/green taste, which sounds weird, & it is, but it works. Not sweet, but I didn’t need to add sweetener to drink it either.
Got this as a sample & decided to give it a try even though I’d been thinking I’m not one for Japanese green teas. This smelled heavenly dry & steeped; lovely mango/tropical fruity aroma. The taste is more lightly green with a fruity undertone. Some astringency, but not bitter. Rejuvenated my curiosity in Japanese greens, but I think I’ll stick to the flavored Senchas.
Raspberry! I taste that way more than any chocolate. Raspberry, mate, & a mix of almondy sweetness without being sickly. I opted for a thicker, creamier mouthfeel & added a little creamer. I think I’ve found a great replacement for Teavana’s My Morning Mate.
I should probably stop buying minty teas if I’m hoping to get any chocolate taste. Didn’t really taste any chocolate, but the mint was nice & refreshing. Has a cool, creamy body (granted I did add creamer), with a slight note of vanilla.
My first non-floral flavored white. The coconut is definitely the main flavor; I didn’t really taste any vanilla, but it may have been the underlying bit that tied it all together. Overall a nice tea, the flavor didn’t dominate to the point where I couldn’t taste the tea. Has more body than a straight white tea, but not bitter. I didn’t follow the steep instructions on the label because 4-5 minutes seemed a long time for a white tea.
