172 Tasting Notes
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 spicy. Which is fine for me, since I do like tea’s with a bit kick. I think the spice over-powered any oatmeal raisin taste, ’cos I just am not getting that flavour. What probably happened is a lot of the spice fell to the bottom of the sample bag, and since I dumped the remaining tea into my infuser it made a really spicy (but yummy) tea.
This is the tea that started me on this tea journey. She bought it for me as a Christmas present last year, and I loved it so much that I promptly started exploring other flavoured tea’s and my obsession has grown from there.
I bought this a couple of times, but it’s time to lay to rest for a while. I’ve finished the last of the sample. I think though, somewhere down the road I’ll probably repurchase it.
It’s got a bit of creaminess from the coconut, but what hooked me on to this was the peppery bite at the end of the sip. I still love it.
I think I’ll always have a fondness for this blend, just because it’s the one that introduced me to loose leaf tea and got me hooked.
I have Dexter3657 to thank for my sample of this lovely tea.
This is my first sampling from Teavivre – I have an order coming in (hopefully soon), and I pleased that this is so tasty. I’m not really surprised, I have read many good things about their tea’s.
The dry leaf is varies in colour from tobacco brown to a light golden. The aroma smells a little like tobacco.
The first steep was malty with some cocoa. Delicious. The second steep was not as deep in flavour. There was a lighter almost fruit like note in the second steep. The aftertaste brought some tobacco flavours out. I prefer the first steep – it had a deeper, stronger taste that I enjoyed.
