290 Tasting Notes

91

Got this in the iced tea set at the end of the season last year, basically bought it only for my girls to have the blueberry bliss & pineapple kona pop.

This is very similar in raspberry taste to Teaopia’s Raspberry Mint mojito. It’s very raspberry tasting, not really getting the lemon & thankfully you don’t taste the mate.
I would consider adding mint to this one when I run out of the mojito one.

drank Cinnamon Heart by DAVIDsTEA
290 tasting notes

I wont be as hard on this tea as everyone else, cause guess what? I actually like it pu’erh & all.
Its got that cinnamon heart quality, taste etc, except It’s way better than most cinnamon heart teas, where this one doesn’t taste like you melted a bunch if hearts into a cup.
It’s sweet, cinnamoney & kinda earthy.

Preparation
Boiling 7 min, 45 sec
Cavocorax

I tried pu’erh on it’s own and hate it, (maybe it wasn’t a good one) but I enjoyed it in this tea. It seemed like a good match.

I have yet to try a straight pu’erh, I’m afraid because there are still some flavoured pu’erhs that make me wanna puke. But not this one.

Yum!
I think I like this one more than lemon chiffon & i definitely like it better than lemon lime cream tart.

Im not convinced this is lime tasting, but rather just citrus. I do wish it was a bit more creamy, but it is quite delicious.

Made my first attempt at a cold brew last night, let this sit for about 12 hours.
Normally i wouldn’t write 2 notes about the same tea, but this is so amazing cold brewed that I have to tell you about it.

Ermahgerd its devine, spectacular, delicious. Straight strawberry rhubarb pie filling, with a touch of creamyness. Heaven in a cup. On nom nom.

Oh my deliciousness!

Had this iced this morning. Oh the lime & mint. Man this is good. It’s quite similar in taste profile to Teaopia’s Raspberry Mint Mojito, which is my fav iced tea EVER!!!

Im not quite getting the cucumber, but everything else is so wonderful I don’t need it.
Very refreshing for hot summer days.

Preparation
Iced
Sil

drank Pu-erh Cocoa-spice by Tealux
290 tasting notes

I’m with Tea sipper on this one. The flavours are nothing like I expected, but it works. Really well actually.

I expected to hate this tea based on the dry leaves. But the way all the flavours are blending creates something completely different & delicious. I’m not even sure what it tastes like, but it’s yummy.
Every now & again I get a touch.if chocolate mid sip & a hint of spice at the back of my throat.

Yummy!

Oh, now I’ll have to try another cup soon to remember what it tasted like… oops. haha

Bought this earlier this week for my morning teas. Figured I’d give it a go this morning. The next half dozen I’d so teas I review are ones I’ve had this week.

This tea is ok & that’s all. I’m not a fan of the flavours the ginseng & eleuthero root. Actually It’s kinda gross & it has nothing to do with the pu’erh.

Into the swap pile it goes.

had this iced yesterday, I was odly hot for the 20 degrees it was in my house.
dry this has a citrusy smell I’m not liking, it steeps up much the same & tastes just like it smells. yuck!
I basically feel the same way about this that Sil does, except I love the sprinkles.
I’ll avoid rating this until I have it hot, though I don’t have high hopes.

the second of my morning pu-erh & my second tealux tea.
the dry leaves were almost fruity, & not quite delicious smelling.
ugh once steeped that really revolting smell appears that I have associated with pu-erh. it’s that smell that lends to that fishy tastes. oh oh
so I sucked it up, stopped breathing through my nose & sipped. I do get a hint of caramel, man I wish there was more of that, followed by the nasty smell converted to taste & a whole lot of chai.
I’ll finish the sample pouch of this, but I won’t buy more. so much potential. needs more caramel & less of that nasty taste, although I don’t know how it’s unavoidable.

I had some of this the other day, granted I am suffering from a head cold and my taster may be off, but I didn’t think I was tasting any Pu’erh and you seem to be getting too much (in a bad fishy sort of way). I love reading tasting notes to see the differences in how people experience teas.

Dry this smells like The Tea Store’s Candy Cane.
It’s minty, but not overly so. I like this one quite a bit, I’ll probably add this one to my morning pu-erh s.
It’s similar in taste to candy cane, not as strong though, & nit as much vanilla.
I wish taste wise this was more like the vanilla mint mate from my local tea store.
But still pretty yummy.

Boiling 6 min, 15 sec
