115 Tasting Notes
Another favorite black tea. The heavy chai flavor is accented wonderfully with ginger and coconut. Like any black tea, if you steep it too long you won’t be able to appreciate the other flavors of the tea.
It smells wonderful and the taste is unlike most other black tea. It’s almost hard to describe. Also, it’s the first tea I’ve seen to use carob. My husband who isn’t a big tea drinker (but becoming one hehe) also loves this tea.
A delightful black tea. Only needs about 2- 3 minutes of steeping and if you go over by a few minutes it doesn’t get too bitter like other plain black teas.I picked mine up on sale during one of Teavana’s sales however I did not see it on their website anymore.
This is the most expensive tea I’ve bought yet. However, it was well worth the price. Like many green teas it has that grassy flavor but this one is somewhat smoother. It only needs a few minutes of steep time. The second steep only needs around 30 seconds. If you like green tea you will love this one.
The tea (without infusion) smells a little funky. But once it’s brewed it has a lovely scent. It doesn’t have much of a ‘chai’ flavor to it (you know that kinda spicy mix most have) but there is just enough there that it leaves a bit of an aftertaste. Probably one of my favorites so far of the 12 Holidays of Tea collection.
If you like almond flavored things you will like this tea. I wish it had more plum flavor as that’s what I was expecting from the name, however, I feel it is too much overpowered by the almond flavor. The dry smell is quite nice but the steeped smell reminds me of vitamins.
What a grand smell. Both the dry and wet smell are so delicious. The flavor can vary depending on how long you steep it and the amount of tea you use. I had to steep mine for longer then the recommended 2-3 minutes because I felt it didn’t have enough flavor and this is also the last of the batch. Every other cup I’ve made has been fine.
All in all good tea. It’s good with a spot of honey but it really doesn’t need it to be honest.
Hibiscus is the first ingredient and thus it is very strong. There is a slight taste of strawberry/creme but not enough to give it it’s name. Hibiscus snow creme would be a more accurate title. The dry smell is good but nothing to swoon over.
Delicious! My husbands favorite tea. He loved the dry smell so he had to try it out and now it’s his favorite. Can be steeped for a long time without getting bitter seems to get sweeter.
One of my favorite teas. I tried this one out on a whim cause I love strawberries and Pu-Erh is good for you. Glad I did because it’s now on the top of my list. It’s very smooth and the strawberry flavor is wonderful! It also has a good pre-steeped smell. I always add a bit of honey to mine because I feel it boosts the pu-erh and mellows the strawberry.
