I haven’t brewed it on its own yet but I have so far successfully added it to lavender tisane and to lemongrass-ginger-apple-teabag concoction and both times it provided a very light citrus bite to the brew.
45 Tasting Notes
Had this at a cafe in Kyoto, seems home made as the ingredients were fresh, not even dried: sakura flowers and yuzu rind. The sakura flower, as the waiter explained, had salt on it, perhaps to help preserve it. Indeed the tea tasted like it had a bit of salty flavor, but the gentle sakura taste and yuzu rind taste where still predominant. It was a pleasant and adventurous experience but I would probably not order it again, due to the salt component.
Had this tea at TeaHolic tea house in Kyoto. Very strong almond smell and flavor, very nice tea with a bit of milk, like a luscious dessert. The only tea place where they have brought me extra hot water for the pot top up without me even having to ask! Two thumbs up.
Oh and they even gave me some teabags to take home as a Christmas present, how delightful! Tea shall be my only Christmas present this year =)
Amazing citrusy falvor and very light uplifting taste. My first Nilgiri taste and I absolutely had to buy a pack to take home.
Very disappointed with this one. Earl Grey is my favorite tea closely followed by rooibos but I found that this particular mix is not at all the dream combination I was hoping for. The rooibos flavor is very strong and bitter and earl grey (bergamot) is very faint. They just don’t harmonize well with each other.
Tried brewing this with a bit of green tea and did not enjoy it but I think I really went overboard with the peel. Will try putting only a few shavings in next time.
Nice and flavorsome just like pure herb should be.
Ginger easily gets 100% rating from me as this is one ingredient that is readily available raw no matter which corner of the world you go. It has innumerable health benefits and makes a lovely brew either on its own or as an additive to many other teas, herbs and ingredients.
I also frequently add a bit of ginger when brewing some other tea for the second time. Where by itself it might have been weak, coupled with ginger it always produces a new and interesting taste.
Lemongrass & ginger are among of my favorite herbal teas. I found that the addition of raspberry leaf harmonized very well with the other 2 flavors and gave the whole tea a lift and made it seem sweeter.
It is just a black tea with no detectable apple flavor. Although the tea bag smelled strongly of apple this did not translate into tea aroma or flavor.
Cardamom flavor overpowers the rest, the result is not very pleasant, l even though I adore normal chai.
Since I do not like licorice I am not going to leave a rating but suffice to say the tea has lots of it!
This tea was amazing, tastes just like Fanta! Contemplating buying a pack…
Had high hopes for this one but alas it tastes nothing like hazelnut or vanilla. It does taste like a spice/root tisane with flavors noted in the ingredients.
Most fruit MlesnA teas seem to have a strong rose flavor. While itself a nice flavor it makes it hard to differentiate between various fruit teas and this one was no exception. Nice fruit/rose blend with a strong flavor perfect for afternoon pick me up.
Nice black with distinct chocolat flavor that is not too sweet. I prefer their Earl Grey Chocolat better but that is just a personal taste.
Very smooth black tea with very little tanning bitterness.
As the name implies plain ol’ black tea. Although I generally dislike black tea this one was quite mild and had a nice nutty flavor and texture.
Pure dried lavender flowers brew a delicious unique flavor tea, very nice to wind down the day.
No particular flavor to this one, tastes like a mild black, a bit on the sweet side. Not bad in any way, just not worth buying or brewing, simply nothing special.
Very nice and very unique tea I keep having at an Italian restaurant here in Kyoto. Unfortunately they keep their teabags in a glass jar so I can never find out what brand it is but the tea itself is lovely with a definite but subtle pine flavor. I believe it also contains mint and some other root like substance but I can not place the taste exactly. It certainly keeps me coming back again and again.
Quite a delicious mix. White peach is very strong while Earlygrey could have been a bit stronger. I also did not like the amount of bitterness on the first brew but I think it was just my excessive steep time. Second brew of the same tea bag provided a very mellow white peach flavor tea.
Strong caramel and rum flavors and rooibus itself very faint, almost non existent. Makes a perfect night time dessert with a bit of milk.
Very nice black, has a strong sweet “dessert-like” flavor like an orange added to desserts (not to be confused with candied orange peel) very nice indeed.
