135 Tasting Notes
This tea reminds me of the caramel covered nuts my mother used to make.
The smell is divine; nutty with that characteristic honeybush sweetness.
The taste is the same, sweet and nutty. I usually prefer rooibos over honeybush, as I’m not a big fan of that sweetness, however here it works very well and turns out a really good cup. I’m liking this a lot!
This has got to be one of the best teas EVER. I just get blown away by this every time I drink it. I added a touch of cream and it’s heavenly.
Sweet and gentle. A nice cup.
This is wonderful tea. Smooth and refreshing. I never imagined I’d be drinking cucumber tea,but I am, and I’m liking it very much.
Tip o’ the hat to Mr. Wonka of the tea world (as he’s been so aptly called) for yet another odd, yet delicious blend. :)
So raspberry, so oolong! So amazing together.
I steeped using the same method I normally do for oolongs – more leaf and shorter infusions.
The first two were perfect. The third was a little short on the raspberry, and the fourth had no raspberry at all. However the oolong is so delicious in itself that they were wonderful cups too.
I’m now going to visit their web site to see how much their international shipping is. I have a feeling I’m going to be needing more of this. The second option, of course, is moving to Denmark.
Thank you Angrboda for sharing this divine tea.
Wow, what an aroma! Like freshly squeezed oranges!
Tastes just a bit less orange-y but still good.
I’ve never had tea with cayenne pepper in it, so I was pretty knocked out by the sharpness of this tea. It’s a very odd taste. Or maybe it’s best called a sensation, rather than a taste. I’m sort of ambivalent about it right now. It wasn’t good, yet at the same time it wasn’t bad either. It’s such an odd, exceptional taste that I think I’m going to need another cup of this before I can consider it seriously.
WAY too much hibiscus. Overwhelming.
I can’t even finish the cup.
I got this the from a recent swap with Angrboda. This is a wonderful example of why swaps are so much fun, because I get to sample teas that I would never purchase on my own.
I never purchase fruity teas, because chances are I won’t like them. Maybe because so often the blenders can’t resist putting hibiscus into fruity teas, and I can’t stand hibiscus. Or maybe it’s just the cloying over-sweetness of them.
At any rate, I found this tea surprisingly good (and it doesn’t have hibiscus in it). I usually drink my tea with no sweeteners, so for me the first infusion was a slightly too sweet. The second infusion was perfect. The black (not sure which black) held up very nicely for a the second infusion, which I don’t usually find with black teas, and the strawberry was sweet, but not overly.
I’m thinking this would probably be very good iced too. Maybe I’ll put the rest of the sample in a little pot, iced, for tomorrow.
