149 Tasting Notes
This is one of those blends that I open the tin every once in a while to smell the dry leaf, it smells that good to me. This is a tasty blend. I like it a lot, despite the fact that the predominant flavour to me is the star anise, followed by a nutty flavour(presumably coconut as that is on the ingredient list) and finally a hint of cinnamon. I see the cardamom pods in the blend, but not sure if I actually taste it. Same with the fruit pieces – I see them, but they don’t stand out.
Brewed to near boiling with added sweetener and milk – delicious.
I tried cold brewing this one, but that didn’t work out, and I had to get rid of it. Maybe a hot brew and then iced with added coconut rum will work out better.
This one I will be keeping in my cupboard.
I cold steeped this one, and it was good. I love pina colada’s and this delivered. The pineapple was present, and smoothed out from creamy coconut. This one didn’t really need any added sugar, as it’s pretty sweet on it’s own. Maybe next cold brew I’ll kick it up a notch with coconut rum and a splash of pineapple juice.
Gaaah!!! Internet service!!!
So this teas is a lot like ‘Forever Nuts.’ Reminds me of oatmeal cookies. YUM!! I tend to eat more of this brew (head hanging in shame) than I brew – both ways are delicious. Eating David’s brew is softer – this one seems to have more beet root. I likey both.
I enjoyed this one. The aroma was delicious. The taste was smooth, sweet and creamy. I’m not sure about the salt, though – I didn’t taste any, and I’m sensitive to salt (which makes me wonder why I bought this in the first place). I liked it.
Me likey. This is not an everyday tea to drink, but certainly one to drink and enjoy on occasion. On first sip I was getting a mineral, vegetal taste. As the tea cooled down I started to get a buttery spinach taste. Yum!!
I really like this one. It has a sweet mineral taste to it that is very light and refreshing. After the second steep, the flavour is still fairly strong like the first cup. I’m also getting a bit of corn after taste which is delicious. This one is going to be a cupboard staple.
A little bit of a disappointment. Not because that this is a bad tea, but because I discovered that I do not like bergamot. I’m surprised, because I recall having tried an EG a long time ago and liking it, but I guess tastes change.
It is a cold miserable day, and a day like this calls for a comforting tea. Sadly, this tea doesn’t quite make it. Taste is a little on the weak side, and to bring out the pumpkin pie flavour I needed to added milk and sugar, which I prefer not to do. It’s ok. It won’t be hard to finish, but I probably won’t buy it again.
When I tried a sample of this in the store I really liked it. Enough to bring home a tin of it. I couldn’t get it right at home. I always found it too tart, which I really don’t like in teas. After several brewing attempts, I had no luck, and tried it cold brewed. Still no luck – but my fault as I brewed too long and it became bitter as well. I was able to finally finish the tin, but will probably not buy again. This was just too tart for my liking.
