47 Tasting Notes
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.
I figured I would give this tea a shot despite all of the low ratings because I generally prefer cream teas, and I’m quite glad I did! It is a very mellow tea, but pairs well with most food (which I find uncommon). I would still place it slightly below the David’s Cream of Earl Grey (favourite tea of all time), but this is still an excellent tea. I will take it either with one sugar and one milk, or just one milk. Not sure if I would enjoy it black, though.
I’m not a huge fan of maple, but I ended up with 100g of this. I steeped to the half-way point (I don’t love maple but I also hate bland tea), and added two drops of milk. It tastes like a maple dip from THortons, I’m actually liking it a lot more than I thought I would. Still don’t know if I would drink it all of the time, though.
This is a fantastic lemon tea. The lemon is definitely present but not overpowering, and almost tastes like lemonade (but not quite). I might try it iced as well. I would recommend on steeping the full six minutes, the shorter side tends to make this tea a little bland.
