2224 Tasting Notes
So a few days before getting the Amoda box, my brother asked me if I had heard of The Honest Leaf. Apparently someone he works with owns the company and was talking to him about it. I suggested that if I had a sample I would review it and I would be happy to share samples to help spread the word. As a result, my brother brought home two bags, this tea and their “Slim” tea only for the Amoda box to show up with a sample of this.
Let me just start off by saying that I am not someone who is into the health benefits of tea. I drink tea because I like it, not because it magically cures cancer or can cause you to lose 50 pounds in two days. However, I figured I would try this out seeing as I have quite a bit of it lying around.
As I sip on the tea, I am getting a sweetness and a heavy dose of lavender. Luckily the floral isn’t too perfumey/drying but it is still floral and at the end of the day that’s just not a flavor I enjoy. However, I am happy to share with others who might find this more to their tastes.
This is definitely a raspberry tea through and through. The chocolate is a little harder to find though. Still, I don’t find myself disappointed as the raspberry more than makes up for it. The oolongy flavor is present here as well but it seems to compliment the flavor as the tea so its less offensive here than I have found it to be in other teas. Thank you MissB for sending this my way and thank you Sil and Kittenna for making sure I got a sample. 274.
This is very oolongy (I know that probably makes no sense) but surprisingly not that offensive. It is grassy bu bright and with creamy notes making for a fairly pleasant cup. I don’t think its something I would want again just because of my preference for non-oolong teas but I could see this being popular among fans of this type of tea.
Thank you for sharing Roswell Strange but this is a big ole mug of nope for me. The coconut is lotiony and the oolong is strong making this taste like a glass of butter and I’m not okay with that. It’s nice to try something new so I’m grateful for the share but this is a tea I would be okay with not encountering again.
