6770 tasting notes

Thanks Jaime for sending this to me! It’s been on my wishlist for a while now!

This is a strange tisane! First…I will say I DO like this. I like the way it tastes! BUT

It’s weird because it doesn’t really make much sense…I would say it’s fruity…like apple and pear but I would say smooth, per say. It’s also weird because it goes on and on about the chocolate-goodness but I really can’t taste any chocolate. This also has mint in it but if I didn’t read the description or see the mint in the blend I wouldn’t have been able to guess it had mint in it.

I will say this…I could smell and taste both the apple! There are LARGE chunks of them in there! This is a nice, tasty touch. It smells a little pie-like…almost like apple pie. There is a bread/pie-like quality to the aroma. It doesn’t taste like pie, tho! I would say a nice apple rooibos if I had to name it based on taste.

Like I said…I think it’s yummy BUT…I’m disappointed about the chocolate claims and can’t really taste the mint either and I really think there could be some pear in here and if there isn’t it tastes like there is!

So…based on taste – if I didn’t know what the ingredients claim or know the name I would say 79-ish…but because there are so many ingredients and claims and a name like this and me not being able to find those notes and touches or claims I would say like a 40. So…I’ll go with a 60 because like I said…this is so unusual it’s just something I had to mention. It’s almost like they put the wrong name with the wrong tea/tisane and the wrong tea with the wrong ingredient list!

No!!!!! They didn’t!!!! It wasn’t them…it was Art of Tea!!!! I was reading thru the other reviews on here and there have been other comments on how people were confused about this one! LOL

Jaime

Oh, good! I’ve had this one before, but to be honest, I don’t really remember it at all. May have to try it again.
