233 Tasting Notes
Happily surprised by this one! My love for chocolate teas has decreased significantly because I’ve realised I really don’t like teas overly sweet. This one has a nice blend of the chocolate and the spices and worked really well with milk. I just wish I wasn’t drinking it in July, haha. The weather here lately has been absolutely terrible and cold and I’ve been drinking far more hot teas than I normally would. I don’t think I’ve ever drank chai in the summer before, and I’ve after having it a bunch of times already this week.
I think I was expecting more out of this one – a bolder flavour, to be sure. It smelled wonderful, and I steeped it for a long time, but it was still too mild. Sigh. I do love peach and ginger separately, and I was excited to try a tea where they were combined, and while this was still pleasant to drink, this was a bit of a let down. :/
Floral teas are another questionable experience for me, but this one wasn’t bad! I’m wary of drinking most black tea blends sans milk, but I can’t drink floral blends with it, haha. So straight up was what I went for this – a decent cup, I have to say! I don’t know if I’d buy this one on my own, but I’m definitely glad I tried this.
I approach all coconut teas with caution, and I have to say that this one was pretty good. I do like my chais bold, and this one was definitely milder than what I prefer. However, that also meant that the coconut wasn’t as strong, either, which for me is a good thing. This reminds me of Coco Chai Rooibos from DT, though this has a different base. All in all, I’m pleased with this sample, and I look forward to trying the rest.
I shouldn’t be drinking chai in the middle of July! LOL. The summer seems to have skipped me… Alas. I was excited to see this is my sample, as I do enjoy a spicy rooibos blend, and I do like this! It’s definitely more spicy than sweet, though I can taste the caramel a little. I think I like cinnamon rooibis chai from DT better, but this is a tasty blend in it’s own right – not bad for a tea bag!
What? An EG I haven’t already tried? OMG. Received this as a birthday gift, though I’m only just now getting around to trying it. Mmmmm. Subtle flavours, but they work nicely together, I have to say. This was my first tea from this company, and I look forward to trying the other samples I have from them!
This one kind of reminds me of Grape Expectations – must be the fruit flavour, I guess. I do like this, just not as much as the grape, haha. And I am not getting as much jasmine as I thought there would be, which is also kind of a let down. Maybe I will try this one again later iced, to see if I change my rating.
I don’t give out 100 ratings very often, and I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve ever given one to a maté. I LOVE this tea. I’ve had it both hot and iced and it is freaking delicious . I’ve got a tin at home and at work, and my only downfall will be forgetting that this is a stimulant and drinking it at night, therefore causing me not to sleep, haha. DT, NEVER discontinue this one!
