I let this steep longer than I should have, out of curiosity, and I think the marshmallow flavor was even more pronounced. I do just love this blend – even if it wasn’t “mine.” :) I needed the extra kick in the pants this afternoon and this worked perfectly!
556 Tasting Notes
One of the best Moroccan Mints on the market. LOVE it! :) (See other note – I’m not feeling very descriptive today and this note doesn’t do the tea justice.)
Thanks, JoeCool (Nichole) for sharing! This is a delicate, delicious tea. It didn’t smell like much in the bag, nor as it brewed, but it packs a tasty punch for your taste palate. I taste sweet melon and a hint of jasmine. This is a great find, but I honestly don’t know if I would go out of my way to purchase it. Overall, a delight but not a must for me.
I just love how tasty this berry green tea is – I can taste the pomegranates and raspberries so well. The green tea base is decent too. (Please see other notes.)
Two cups of this started my morning off just right.
I mean, for Tuesday, that is. :)
(Please see other notes; this is a fave.)
Thanks JoeCool (Nichole) for sharing some of this. I’m not normally an Earl Grey fan so I’m not rating it (my palate is too inexperienced). But this smells nice and tastes like your typical Earl Grey. Heavy on the bergamot. Watery fruit loops every time. (taste)
They say this is the perfect afternoon tea…and I have to agree at this point. It’s after noon (12:34 to be exact) and I need an extra kick in the butt to get through today. This is hearty and bold, just doesn’t have much of a taste to it. It’s not bad, but tastes more like a base tea. I don’t think this can hold its own. However, it’s strong and I need the caffeine. Let’s roll.
LOVE this one! :) Sweet, then tart (in a good way), each sip tastes like summer. YUMS!
Thanks silvermage2000 for sharing! Jasmine is one of my all-time favorite scents and favorite teas, so this was a great fit for me. Sweet, floral, fragrant – this tea is a dream. The white tea was a bit bland, but the jasmine brought it into focus. A fine jasmine tea.
EDIT: I’m dropping the rating. After it cools there is a funny aftertaste…not sure what that’s all the about.
BEST PEACH TEA EVER! This is a new cupboard essential for me. The peach flavor is superb – I picture juicy, plump peaches when I sip this. It’s a dream! I love peach tea; I used to live on the Diet Peach powder tea (I know, I know) when I was growing up. So this reminds me of summertime, sunshine, and happiness. Sigh. Wonderful! Thanks to Stacy for sending a sample!
I am annoyed that when I type “Vampire” for this tea in a search, “Edward” pops up. The Twilight Mary Sues are not vampires!
OK. I’m over it.
I love this tea. It’s so refreshing, citrus-y and even revitalizing in a way. Probably helped me get over that Twilight outburst there. :)
Please see other notes. I’m normally not this psychotic.
I added this tea, but I wonder if it’s a duplicate… anyway, thanks to the wonderful Stacy for this sample. I’m a chai fiend and very picky, so she took a risk sending this to me. ;) However, it paid off. I let it steep for over 10 mins (work meeting) and the spicy concoction I was awarded with was worth it. In this delicious medley, I taste cinnamon, clove, ginger, allspice and even pepper. I won’t say it’s as good as my fave blend, but it’s a close second. More like 1a. ;) I love the spicy flavoring, plus the black tea base is bold and hearty. YUMS!
Backlogging – had this yesterday while sick & it cheered me right up. Meghann M, you rock! I love this blend. It puts me in the mood for summer (heck, I’ll even take spring, just warmer weather, please). LOVE it! Please see other notes.
Bliss. Caffeine. Both needed this morning. Got a late start, running late, then traffic. Now I am finally calming down…only to have to gear up for work. Grr! At least it’s Friday and I’ve got a happy hour party tonight. :)
This is a light, yet full-bodied fruity tea. Brews up and smells like raspberry pie. The green tea base is subtle, woodsy and soft. The taste is incredible – light as a wisp yet berry-ful. Delish!
No rating as this is one of my creations. Brews up strong – I can smell cinnamon, a hint of strawberry and chocolate. Tastes delicious! Chocolate covered strawberries with a kick of cinnamon. Sweetener enhances the taste. I gulped this down!
I love anything strawberry and this is one of the best strawberry teas I have ever tasted. The strawberry flavor is real – not that artificial candy flavor (not that there is anything wrong with that). The oolong base is bold & strong enough to hold its own with the strawberry presence. It tastes wonderful. No sweetener necessary. This reminds me of Californian summers.
EDIT: I gulped this down in a few minutes and resteeped. The tea was just as strawberry-licious and oolong-tastic as it was the first time around. Thanks for the sample, Butiki. You’ve got a customer! :)
I upped the rating for this gem from TeaEqualsBliss – Thank you! :) I need caffeine today, so I reached for this black tea. I left the tea bag in longer than I thought I should have, but I love the extra flavor. It’s extra vanilla & minty – and it tastes sparkly! That’s the only way I can describe it…
LOVE the name of this one, and love the tea! It’s chocolate-covered cherries to the max! There is a floral hint at the edge of the flavor, but this tea mainly tastes like chocolate-covered berries. Delish!
EDIT: OK, I had to drop this a bit; as the tea cooled, the smell started to give me a headache. Grr! Guess I have to gulp this quickly… It’s still delicious, and sweetener enhances the flavor for sure. :)
Love the zesty smell you get when opening this bag. So delightful, so cheery. So needed this dreary afternoon! (See other notes…and this is one of mine so I’m completely biased.)
This brightened up my afternoon – and was nice and light after our office potluck, in which we all decided we needed a siesta! I love the light floral body and the crispness of the tea. I actually enjoy drinking this plain, but adding Splenda enhances the sweetness in the flavor profile. This is a true gem. Delish!
It’s as gross, rainy day here in Maryland so I’m starting my day with something that makes me happy – this unbelievably-awesome, nothing-comparable chai blend! Please see other tasting notes; this is a fave. :)
Backlogging from Saturday (there were Internet issues, grr) – thank you to one of my favorite people, JoeCool (Nichole) for sending a package of this my way. If you like chamomile, you’ll love this take on the herbal favorite. While there are supposed to be notes of lavender and rose, I only tasted chamomile from beginning to end. However, it was a satisfying cup – helped my upset tummy and my insomnia. Overall, a good tisane.
Guess this is a new one? Oh well – it’s awesome! It’s just the right amount of mint and smoky gunpowder green. I love any gunpowder green tea, and this is one of the best.
