54 Tasting Notes
I cannot make this tea work. I think it’s the chamomile in it that makes it seem so bitter to me, which is a shame because it smells absolutely amazing.
This is disappointing on its own but absolutely mind-blowing when combined with Peachberry Jasmine Sutra! I love that blend iced with a ton of sugar. Mmm!
I don’t like jasmine tea unless the jasmine is one note among many. This is all jasmine all the time so not one of my favourites. However, I could taste straight away that it is a high quality black tea, and you can always taste the difference between a tea that is scented with real jasmine flowers like this one, than those sprayed with scented water/oil. If you like jasmine, you absolutely must try this tea. It’ll be everything you want; trust me.
This tea is true to the name; very strong coconut and ginger taste, smoothed out by the natural sweetness of rooibos. I love this with honey and some milk when I’m feeling under the weather. It’s very soothing on sore throats, and is a good smooth tea for people who like a little kick in their teas.
Middle of the range, soft formosa. This is nice but nothing to write home about. A good introduction to oolong, though it’s now discontinued.
I just don’t understand the appeal of this tea. So many people have raved to me about it but, frankly, it is so malty that it smells horrible to me! I find the taste far too strong and murky. The Black Dragon Pearls are a much better cup, IMO.
Finally a mate you can ice!! I love this with a little sugar. Out of this world fruity taste and with that great roasted mate base. Delicious! I only ever drink this iced but a lot of people have been raving to me about it hot. I’ll have to try that sometime. Overall, this is a must try for mate and fruit tea lovers. The sharp lemon kick with the raspberry is pure heaven.
Finally! A version of Morroccan mint tea that I like! It’s the spearmint that makes this such a soft, beautiful tea. I find the usual peppermint + green tea too strong a combo for my liking so this was a welcome surprise. I absolutely love this tea hot at any time of day.
This is a lovely lavender tea. The white tea base is smooth but nothing to write home about for a white. That said, the lavender scent and taste is so true, so flowery and smooth that, overall, this tea is just lovely. It brews a beautiful grey-purple shade.
This is very much not my thing, I’m afraid. I have been intrigued by the ‘milk’ oolongs since I first read about them on a tea forum, and this seems like a good one to start with. I can clearly taste that it’s a good, high quality tea with that distinctive ‘sweet milk’ aroma. The only problem is that it just isn’t to my taste. I find the smell far too sweet and cloying, and the taste on the first brew is far too creamy and odd for my liking. The second infusion is much more pleasant but I couldn’t stomach any more. I don’t want to put people off since it’s clearly a high quality oolong but I really do not understand this fondness for such a cloying taste!
