294 Tasting Notes
I love spicy things & I seem to be drawn to spicy & fruity teas.
this one may possibly be even better than Mango Diablo.
the scent of the tea is very familiar, however I still cannot place what it is.
you kind of get smacked in the mouth with the spice & followed directly with sweet citrus, fruitiness.
mmmmm mmmmm mmmmm so delish
ETA: had this iced over the weekend, while still really good it looses almost all the spicy kick.
I received this in a swap.
this cup was so clear it was quite spectacular.
this is so delicious. I don’t know what potato pancakes are suppose to taste like, but this is so good. you get the buttery vegetal notes & the hint of cinnamon & apples. mmmmmm I could drink this all the time.

There is definitely not as much coconut in my leaves as I expect, or as what other people got in theirs.
The dry leaves smell delicious, sweet, chocolate & nutty.
It’s chocolaty & a bit nutty, reminds me some what of S&V Almond sugar cookie, but without that stale taste.
I was definitely hoping for coconut, but it’s still mighty tasty. Bakey, chocolate cookie goodness!
And again I don’t listen & brewed this up with the gum still in it, when a globby white chunk floated to the top I freaked, until I remembered it was the gum…. oops
I made this into an iced tea in my new beverage dispenser, I ended up using the full 50g in this jug & it was only about half full. I added some rock sugar, because I expected my girls to drink it. We’ll see what’s left when I get home.
I have to say profile wise it’s pretty similar to Jelly Bean Dream, except I definitely get bubble gum aspects. So it could totally be psychological, but whatever I taste it.
It’s sweet strawberry followed by bubble gum. Yummy!
Strawberry wise though it is nothing like Wild Strawberry from my local tea shop, it’s more like candy strawberry.
This is an interesting blend.
It’s fruity & chai like. It’s a much different chai than what I’m used to. It was a bit light on flavour despite my amount of leaves I use. You definitely get the berry flavours out front, followed by the muted chai spices.
Overall though a nice fruity, spicy blend.
Received this one as a sample with my order.
It’s very lemony smelling, taste wise that lemon doesn’t come off nearly as strong. It’s slightly lemony & black tea tasting. It’s an alright tea, nothing special.
I was ok with this one until I got the cigarette after taste. Ick.
ETA: I had this again, I added some plain pu’erh because I found this to be mostly lemon. It was much better that way.
Alright so I know most companies say to remove things like jelly beans & gum, buuuut I don’t listen…. like ever, so I kept em in there.
Steeped this up extra strong & poured it over ice. This is fruity, strawberry, a bit tart I swear it actually tastes like jelly beans…. ok no it tastes more like red gumballs. It’s quite tasty.
Received this as a sample with my order.
It’s definitely mango smelling. But man that 5g was barely anything. Had this iced & it was super delicious, mango, fruity & lightly sweet.
I would have to do a side by side with mango madness, but if I remember correctly they taste very similar. I may stock both & keep this one for a night time iced tea.
Alright third times a charm, my third time trying to write this note today.
I received this from Courtney
So it’s blueberry (ish- definitely not Northern Ontario Blueberry.) I’m not getting any cream cheese or Danish flavours. I dunno I was so excited to try this & it’s just meh.
I do have more on it’s way from someone else, maybe it was just this sample, a lil cross contamination perhaps.
