It’s been a while since my last cup of this and it called me from a lonely corner in my office. I’m finishing up a cup now and it’s still as pleasant as I remember it! I think I will pass some on to Azzrian
6686 Tasting Notes
I started my day with this one! It was nice…see other notes…
Special thanks to Liberteas for this one!
The tangerine is wonderfully done but not overly loud – just right. The stereotypical lima bean taste I usually pick up on from the Guayusa is faint but it all jives JUST right!
Jillian sent me a surprise a while back and this was included! Thanks so much! It smells like Apple Jolly Ranchers! The flavor is pretty amazing! It’s squeaky-clean sencha but lovely tart apple! Just enough flavor of each!
Den sure does do a great flavored Sencha!
Azzrian there is some in your box!
With a name like this – how can I not try it?
PLUS it’s a ChariTEA!
I was a little hesitant that it was going to be too tart because of the hibiscus but Indie Tea does the dreaded “H” right! It does a ‘body good’ I guess! It all works well! I’m very grateful for that! It’s slightly tart but two types of tart – one from the Hibiscus and the other from the Cran…they are different but good…almost a yin and a yang of sorts.
I think the peppercorns help it along as well. They are NOT overpowering but are a nice, subtle addition. And the honkin’ huge rose in there is a nice touch! This is just lovely!
I’m increasing my B Vitamins – or at least making sure I am paying more attention to them and this is a good source for B1 so that’s awesome!
Anyhow…upon opening the package I was assuming it would have a strong popped rice/corn aroma paired with a nutty and green flavor combo but this one isn’t much for scent – dry.
Once you add the boiling or near-boiling water the aroma clicks on! It’s more green smelling than nutty or popped corn/rice but it’s lovely regardless!
It’s smooth with sweet,nutty, green, and slightly roasted rice and green veggies, as well as that popped rice/corn flavor you would expect but it’s not as harsh or involved as some tend to be. I like that – with this specific offering, that is.
It’s refreshing, in a way!
It makes me crave more.
This is really brilliantly fantastic! The more I sip the more I crave!
Floral with a bit of natural spice notes this is a nice straight-up oolong!
It’s very springy. Quite floral but in a good way :)
This is very smooth and clean tasting and is on the lighter side of your English Breakfast Type teas! Towards the end of the sip I could pick up on a speck of gentle pepper.
This isn’t a super strong black tea to make your eyes pop out of your head first thing in the morning but it’s a solid black tea for most any time of the day!
I totally agree with my Sororitea Sister LiberTEAs, here! This is a pretty fantastically flavored herbal/Rooibos! I had a cup of this yesterday but wanted to ponder it a bit more before typing up a tasting note.
It has a pleasant aroma to it. Lovely vanilla, cinnamon, and orange mesh together and create a unique aroma of its own.
The flavor is along the same lines…gentle cinnamon, vanilla, and citrus all work and play together nicely…pair that with the sweetness of the Rooibos and this really shines nicely!
Nice flavor without being too over the top, calming and comforting, nice hot or lukewarm or cold!
Two thumbs up!
I had some last week and more today and it’s a goody as long as you don’t over steep – which Stacy DID mention this in the description. Thanks Stacy! It can get bitter – you’ve been warned LOL
But seriously – this is a decent Kenyan Green. It’s thick, a bit grassy, a little like spinach, with a hint of sweet.
I do think this is a nice offering and think the more who try it will tinker with it and find they appreciate it! It’s dandy!
This smells slightly fruity and a bit of sweet-wood cigar but also like yunnan buds. The flavor is smooth yet sweet but filling and satisfying. There is a hint of pleasant pepper towards the end of the sip, too!
I really like this!
I can’t believe I am still the only one to try this so far. It’s tasty! It really is! I had 3 more cups today!
I’ve had 3 cups of this today and am loving it! I’m going to have it again tomorrow in the morning and do a lengthier review.
Started by day with this again :)
Sweet, Creamy, light, a pure delight! Good for multiple infusions! I like the 2nd one just as good if not better than the first! A Might Fine Tie Guan Yin! Lovely!
Backlogging…started my day with 2 cups of this!
Backlogging from yesterday…YUMMO!
I had this one Friday and REALLY liked it. I wasn’t thinking I would like it all that much because of the herbal combo but paired with the white tea base and how it all jived this is a dandy flavored white herbal tea! The Goji Berries are perfect with everything else, too!
Backlogging from Friday…I’ve been hit and miss with Steepster Service lately :(
I totally agree with your notes about this being the definition of MUSCATEL!
So much so that at first I was thinking it was a bit bitter and woodsy/grassy and peppery and even a tad sour. After a few more sips…it grew on me! I started to appreciate it and enjoy it more. After pondering this flavor combo I realized…KAPOW! That’s what they were going for! It’s rare, unique, and makes you think! This is a conservational-piece-tea right here, folks! But VERY Muscatel!
Sending the rest to Azzrian
Backlogging a cup and finishing up another one. See previous notes :)
Backlogging from yesterday! I almost forgot how much I enjoyed this! Very nice! See other notes!
Backlogging from yesterday…enough for 1 more cuppa
