1008 Tasting Notes
This is one of the Nina’s teas I tried last time I went to the offices and I ended up buying more when I visited this time. It has a pretty strong rooibos scent and that does slightly transfer over to taste but there is also a nice strawberry flavor to the cup. It is not the greatest rooibos tea I have had in my life, nor the best strawberry tea but I do enjoy it enough that I want to have it around for some caffeine-free variety.
This smelled so amazing, as most orange teas do but like all other orange teas, I am not a fan. It is warm and cozy thanks to the cinnamon but I just don’t really like citrus teas. For those who do like orange teas, this is worth a try but it is not for me. Nonetheless, thank you Laurent and Sophie at Nina’s Paris for the chance to try this tea.
Thank you Laurent and Sophie at Nina’s Paris for a sample of this. It is a very good green tea. Delicious berry flavors with a hint of grass from the base. However, I have no clue what temperature this steeped at and I am not sure for how long so I will hold off on rating this until I can try it brewed properly.
This tastes like another tea I had not too long ago and I can’t quite put my finger on which one which is driving me crazy.
Tastewise, I am getting papaya and a hint of both melon and peach. It is smooth and sweet and definitely something I would drink again if offered a cup. Though, for my tastes, this isn’t something I would reach for all too often just because there are so many other flavors I would reach for first.
Thank you Laurent and Sophie at Nina’s Paris for this amazing tea!
When I was first handed the box to smell, I was immediately reminded of dried mango slices and that is 100% reflected in the taste. This is a juicy mango tea for sure. Sweet and ripe with just a hint of black base. Yum!
Thank you Laurent, Sophie, and everyone else at Nina’s Paris for making my mother and I feel so welcome and at home!!
Before I talk about the tea, I would just like to say that I had yet another amazing experience at Nina’s Paris offices. I was made three different cups of tea (Pour Maman, The Sur La Lune, and this one) and I walked out with a whole box of delicious teas. I mean, when I walked in i had 91 and now I am back up to 115 and I cannot be happier because Nina’s teas are AMAZING!!
Many of you know I am neither a cacao fan nor a lover of chocolate mint so this is one of the last teas I would have ever asked to try. However, before I even knew what was happening, a mug of this was placed in front of me and since they went to the trouble of making it, I figured I should at least have a sip. I am glad I did because this was actually a really good tea. The cacao gave it a nice, smooth chocolate flavor, and the mint was mellow but refreshing. I was actually shocked at how enjoyable it was and ended up guzzling it down quite quickly.
