149 Tasting Notes
I was so excited to try this blend – I thought it would be my favourite go-to flavour. Sadly, it is sorely lacking flavour. Am very disappointed.
I drank too many dessert tea’s today (but too lazy to log all of them) and really needed something either salty or roasty to cut into all that sugar. This was the choice, and it was perfect – roasty with mineral notes.
I’ve been neglecting my oolongs since being on a black tea and dessert tea binge. I love oolong. I don’t know why I’m not drinking them up.
While this tea doesn’t taste very much like carrot cake, it’s not a bad tasting tea. It has some spiciness that’s not overpowering. I added some creamer and a touch of sweetener (maple syrup) and I found this to be a pleasant dessert type tea.
I tried a re-steep – didn’t work. Had to dump it. Bleh.
Out of the fall flavours that I tried – I didn’t bother with cocoberry mate, this one was my favourite. So sweet and creamy. I’m tempted to buy more of it – though I know if I do, I need to do it soon ‘cos of the winter tea’s coming out.
Sniffles. Sad it’s gone. So good – deep and rich. Gone. :(
This is my first venture with keemun – I would not normally have purchased this tea based on the description, but this was a sample given to me in my Teavivre order, so I decided to give it a go.
I wasn’t very nice to this poor tea. I steeped it far too long. Well, what a pleasant surprise that it was still really tasty. It was malty and a little bread-y. I decided to re-steep the leaves even though I over did it the first time around, and while the flavour was milder (no surprise there) it was still quite flavourful. I am impressed.
I will definitely be purchasing this one at some point.
Not great. Not terrible. Not something I’d purchase again.
The smoky flavour is there, but I’m not getting any of the other flavours or spices from this tea. There are other smoky tea’s that I prefer. Disappointing. Ah well, onto tastier teas.
As soon as I opened the sample packet I could smell the strong sweet fruit in this tea. I thought from the scent that I would love this tea, but sadly, it just wasn’t for me – not as a hot brew.
I have enough left to do a cold brew, which I’ll do even though we’re heading for some chilly days. I think this will taste much better when cold brewed.
This is really good. Malty and a bit of the outdoors in the taste. I’m not getting cocoa or spice, but I am enjoying the flavours from my cup.
Thank you Dexter3657 and Mandala for another exquisite tea.
