1938 Tasting Notes
This tea is actually quite similar to Jessie’s Tea/Caesars Provence as they are both lavender rooibos teas. However, this has the addition of berries and personally I find that this distracts from the taste of the tea as opposed to adding to it. This is still a very good cup but it is close enough to Jessie’s Tea/Caesars Provence that I don’t need both and I prefer the other.
This one smells great but like so many other fruit blends I find myself disappointed. I find I usually search for the tea base and miss it because it is not there. Nonetheless, this was not bad. It was a nice cup of tea that was a perfect balance between tart lemon and sweet strawberry. Something tells me this will be amazing to have iced in the summertime. Until then I probably won’t be reaching for it as a hot tea.
Both dry and steeped, this tea smells very similar to DAVIDs Red Velvet Cake. However, this is not nearly as sweet as RVC. It gets both a subtle sweetness and a slight creaminess from the vanilla. I did forget I was steeping this so I managed to way oversteep it but that merely resulted in a stronger black tea flavor.
OMG this is good! This is one of the first caramel or toffee teas that I have had that actually has a full-bodied toffee taste to it. The aroma fills the room with warm, sugary, caramel-y goodness. The pu’erh is subtly present and helps to stop the toffee from becoming cloying. Another hit from CaesarsTea!
ETA: I am happy to add that this resteeps quite well. The flavors are not as strong but they are still present and delicious.
This tastes similar to DAVIDs Creme Caramel Rooibos but with a bit of fruitiness to it (however I don’t know where those are coming from given there is no fruit in this)
Unlike many DAVIDs teas which tend to have bolder flavors, the rooibos is a bit more apparent in the CaesarsTeas I have tried. With that said, I think the rooibos used in CaesarsTeas might be better quality because it tastes pretty good.
Even my roommate has been enjoying the teas and she does not usually choose flavored teas as I have mentioned many times before.
Yet another good tea from CaesarsTea!
This smells amazingly sweet and delicious – like peach cobbler! However, the tea does not taste like it smells. It is earthy and woodsy but is given a nice sweetness from the vanilla. I don’t get much peach either but the cup is still very delicious. It is not a Peach Vanilla tea but it is a good tea nonetheless.
The website for CaesarsTea recommends adding sugar so perhaps that would help bring out the flavors some more. Something to try in the future.
This is one of my favorite cherry tisanes. It has a great tartness from the cherries but it is calmed by the sweetness of the bananas. Plus it is a true banana flavor and not the artificial banana flavor that many teas tend to have. So far CaesarsTea is proving to have been a good choice.
I had my second cup of this today because a friend came over and said she wanted something not too sweet and something with roses. I do not have many floral teas as I find they can get quite perfume-y but I recommended this. Though it is not roses, it does have a similar floral taste to it. And the lychee has a nice sweetness but it is in no way cloying.
A plus – this tea steeps really nicely a second time around.
