11 Tasting Notes
As one might imagine, this tea is very fruity. It tastes almost like fruit juice. There is little taste of carrot or beet, but they mellow out the sweetness of the fruit nicely. If you like fruit teas, definitely give this one a try.
This tea has a wonderful scent, just like candy canes with a hint of cinnamon. I had it plain without anything added, but next time I would definitely add sugar or honey to sweeten it a bit. This mix begs for it.
I like this tea, but not as much as I like Hot Cinnamon Spice from Harney & Sons, which is what I was looking for when I found this. However, it’s nice and a bit different. I like it for a little variety. It demands boiling water and a long steep time to get the right flavor and took a couple of times to get it right.
I bought this tea on recommendation from a friend. I was sick and couldn’t smell anything when I bought it, so I was surprised when I opened it up one day and the tea was overpowering. I felt almost sickened by the smell, but decided to try brewing it anyway, as I’m a sucker for blueberries and my friend liked it so much. I’m glad that I did because, once brewed, the scent becomes more subtle and complex. It’s a great tea and I like it when I need something fruity. I find this tea better when it’s steeped both hotter and longer.
This is one of my all-time favorite teas. The green flavor isn’t overwhelmed by the floral fruity notes of cherry blossom, but the scent carries. It makes my office smell amazing and it’s a very calming, soothing blend. I could drink this tea just about every day.
This is a great blend of teas – black and green and accented with guava. I don’t taste the coconut or strawberry, but I love the flavor. I first drank this in the silk teabags and fell absolutely in love, but when I ordered the loose leaf tea, I was left a little disappointed. I’m betting it was just the batch didn’t quite get mixed like the previous one – an unfortunate coincidence. I will reorder this tea so I always have it on hand. It’s one of my stand-bys.
I love this tea. It’s a strong black tea with cinnamon and apple notes that give flavor, but aren’t overwhelming. I wish there were a little more cinnamon and a lot more apple flavor, but I usually end up adding extra tea to the brew and do alright. It’s a good one for people who are too shy for Hot Cinnamon Spice, but still like cinnamon flavor.
I like this tea a lot, but it’s a very strong spice-flavored tea. It’s finish is black, but the orange, clove, and almond are strong, so I have to be in the right mood for it. If Christmas had a flavor, this would be it. It is good alone or with sweeteners and milk.
I was reluctant to try this one at first because sometimes cinnamon can be overwhelming, but here the tea is strong and spicy and just a little sweet. It’s the perfect kick in the bum for mornings that start off slow and a great way to wind down a day, too. In my opinion, the hotter the better and average steep time are best.
