103 Tasting Notes
Oh, this one was delicious! Spicy and minty is a gooood combination, I think! I was totally sad to see my cup end – when I have room for another flavour of tea in my stash this one is definitely making the cut and is being included. I’m always on the lookout for greens that don’t cost a small fortune.
Just an average tea for me, I think… I liked the honey taste, but I think there was too much straight rooibos taste for me in this one. I didn’t realise that was part of this blend, and I probably wouldn’t have gone for it, otherwise. Nice caffiene buzz (no pun intended, haha), though, which was appreciated. If I try this one again, I’ll probably add sweetener (which I don’t really like doing, because tea shouldn’t have to be additionally sweetened, in my opinion!)
While I do love strong teas, I’m always wary of hibiscus. That said, I did enjoy this one, even if I probably let it steep a bit too long. I did really enjoy the berry flavours to this, which probably upped my rating. I want to enjoy more mate blends from DT other than Chocolate Rocket, and I think this was a good choice on my part. Definitely will be having this one again.
I’m a little more wary of chocolate teas than I used to be, mainly because I’ve come to realise that I don’t like my teas super sweet. But this blend worked, and I added some milk for a creamier texture (and to possibly lessen the taste of the plain rooibos). A very nice dessert tea – and one I think I’ll be trying again!
I’m not sure what to make of this one… I (mostly) liked it, but I don’t think it was spectacular. Maybe I’m just not as fan of floral teas as I am the fruit ones? Or maybe I steeped it for too long – I seem to do that with anything that has green tea in it. I generally like most of the other types of tea nice and strong, but I keep forgetting I don’t need to steep green as long.
I’m not quite sure what to make of this one! The cucumber smell is very, very potent, which kinf of turned me off a little, but when I brewed it up, I found a few other flvours to help balance it out a little. I had to take my time in drinking this, but as I did, I found myself getting used to the taste more and more. I suspect I’ll need another cup or two to fully make up my mind, haha.
I gave this one a go today from my local DT store – I have to be in a particular mood for jasmine tea, and I was intrigued that this one had a black tea base instead of a green. The jasmine taste was still pretty stong even with the addition of some milk – and the weird thing is that it didn’t taste all that different from a lot of green tea bases. Hmm.
