42 Tasting Notes
Ooops, accidentally forgot to set a timer this time! I specifically wanted a breakfast tea today, and this one was fuller this time around. Maybe the longer steep is the key! One milk, one sugar.
My mom brought this home so I thought I would give it a try! I don’t like stevia or peppercorns particularly, and I’m hit and miss on white chocolate, but I do love mint and anything Christmas-y, so it’s a tossup. About halfway through the cup, it is alright. The immediate, initial taste is not my favourite, but the flavours come together nicely in the after taste. Will need to try a few more times!
My mom has some of this, so I thought I would give it a try as she and my sister rave about it. (I can’t remember if I tried it last year or not.) I made it and then put it in my thermos to have later at work. Maybe it was the fact that it wasn’t fresh (the tea didn’t sit in it, but it was ~3 hours old) or maybe it is my thermos, but it kind of tasted like cherry cough syrup. Anyone else had this experience?
Now that I have some more time, it’s back to Steepster I go!
This is tied for my number one tea, and I just went to David’s to buy myself another 250g, as I was on my last 50g bag. My throat is a little sore today, and once again, the peppermint is helping! I think I might cut down to half a sugar, though.
I usually greatly dislike anything with coconut in it, but I actually couldn’t taste it. The balance between the cinnamon and the chocolate was perfect. Given the caffeine though, I don’t know if I would drink this at night haha!
Honestly, this tea doesn’t jump out at me as anything spectacular. It might be because I usually drink more of the flavoured teas, but this even seems to fall short of Twinnings breakfast tea. Maybe I’ll try a shorter steep next time.
My sister had this and was nice enough to let me try it. I’m not a huge fan of pineapple or coconut, I didn’t get more than 5 sips into this I’m afraid.
My mom was VERY nice to me, and mailed this (and a few other teas) to me in Dublin. I’m still on the fence with rooibos tea in general, but I REALLY enjoyed this tea. I found it the perfect amount of sweetness with nothing added (coming from a girl who always puts a dash of sugar in her tea). I made it cold, I would be hesitant to have it hot, though; don’t know if I would enjoy it as much.
My best friend/roommate here has this tea, and is gracious enough to let me have some whenever I feel like it (lucky, lucky me!!). This is lovely, sweeter tea that I generally have for dessert. Very relaxing blend (the Adagio Cream is one of my go-to teas), the cream balances out the chai nicely. I usually have with one sugar and two milk.
