I adore this tea. I wish I had it in a perfume—every time I open the canister I inhale deeply. It has the most lovely aroma. I can drink it sweetened or plain and it is always nice. Like dessert. I should get another canister soon!
12 Tasting Notes
I like to steep this with a Dilmah Hibiscus and Rosehip tea and drink it sweet and iced—Moroccan Iced Tea. ^_~ On its own, it’s a fair mint tea, but it’s a black tea with spearmint, so the flavour is nice, but not terribly strong.
This is, surprisingly, a weak tea. Next time I think I’ll put two bags in my mug. It smells delicious and the taste almost lives up to that scent, but not quite. I do like it, though I wish there was a stronger Cardamom bent to it. It’s quite sweet and cinnamon-y and I’ll be eager to try it iced!
Update: I adore this tea and have almost finished the canister. Occasionally I’ll use two bags, but I’m giving it a longer steep time and the flavours are much better. It’s only so-so iced, so I prefer it hot. I’m upping my rating to 92ish _
I do like this tea, but it seems a little… bland. Not in a bad way! It’s just very subtle, somewhat ‘warm’ and innocuous. Perhaps it is the orange I ate for breakfast, but I was disappointed with the lack of orange blossom aroma or taste. That said, it is sweet and has that earthy taste I like.
This is a nice tea, smells lovely but the taste is… sort of a letdown. I think it would be better iced than hot, though I like my tea rather strong when hot and rather weak when iced. The weak flavour would probably make an excellent fruited tea base but on its own I was simply not impressed. Lovely package though!
Yum! It’s a mint tea, it’s a great, there really isn’t much else to say! Though the Moroccan mints I have encountered have been full of plenty of other herbs—and usually fresh ones at that, this is a pleasant minty cup of tea. Not too strong and delicious iced. Sweet or unsweet, it’s simply YUM.
I second Pat’s ‘double take’. What a fine tea! It’s like a wine: very fine focused taste. I did drink mine with sugar, but I have no doubt it the honey sweetness of the natural flavours make it fine on its own. I left my mug for a while and came back to a nearly chill tea, just as good as it was hot. Based on this, I think it would make a fabulous iced drink. This was a sample, I’m definitely ordering a full size.
It’s a little like drinking the scent of the forest ground as it wafts up in the early morning. That’s overly poetic, but it’s what I like about white tea—that hint of still growing, still in the earth bitterness. This has bright overtones making it delicious even unsweetened.
This is an okay Earl Grey. It’s a tad bitter and not in the good way. Delicious aroma though. I dare say it smells better than it tastes, but all in all a fair cup for a rainy midafternoon. Nothing to ponder life in. ^_~
One of my favourite Oolongs (from a bag). It’s a smooth tea with something almost vanilla-y about it. It’s good hot or iced and has a wonderful aroma.
One of my favourites from the Republic. I like it really strong, milky, and sweet, or weak and faintly sweet. Definitely a dessert tea or a comfort tea. Surprisingly it’s also good iced. (Blasphemy!)
This is an instant tea—and I think the crunchy mix would be great sprinkled over lemon sorbet! The tea itself is very minty, though slightly more bitter than I like, as if it steeped too long, but I’ll confess: I got this for a dollar. I’d buy it at full price though, it’d be nice for a quick breakfast.
