Little to no scent prior or after steeping. LOVE the color tho…it’s a typical brown with a reddish tint. Fairly plain in taste but a nice average cup if that is what you are looking for
6686 Tasting Notes
The Dried Loose Leaf smelled like a Mixed Drink today…all I could think of was a beach and those little drink umbrellas. Lovely. The steeped product was a tad murky today but it smelled and tasted great!
The leaves are very tight and heavy even into steeping. I couldn’t pick up the peach scent before, during, or after the steep…but could smell the woodsy smell. Looks like typical coloring for an oolong. The taste is ok…fairly plain…but tasty, I suppose. There isn’t much wrong with this cuppa just not totally over the top exceptional or overly memorable. Regardless…I will give it a thumbs up.
Before steeping smells like a light Apple-Raspberry-Honey Blend. While Steeping it morphs into a typical raspberry herbal tea scent with a few undertones that are barely noticeable. Color is a Purplish-Pinkish Color. The longer you steep the more Orange Peel Scent you can smell and it pairs nicely with the Apple and Berries. I was a little afraid of this as the coloring and scent progressed as I am not usually into fruity herbals. It’s probably one of the better fruity herbals I have tried so far. I don’t think I would buy it in large quantities but I am glad I sampled it. I bet it would be better iced. A notch above average.
Prior to steeping this smells like a Peach Wine almost. Lovely Scent, really. During/After Steep more Peach scent candy. The coloring is a light to medium brown. It’s lighter than I thought it would be but that is ok because I think it works well. I like this blend. Thirst Quenching, even. Thumbs Up!
Resteep – YUM
WHOA…Oversteeped A LOT…but still good tastes more like DARK Black Tea with DARK Semi-bitter Chocolate…just a heads up.
Yummy but a little weak on the resteep. Still nice!
Tastee…almost creamiscle-esque for some reason today…either way…enjoyable. Glad I bought it!
Received in a sample gift set from my mother. Prior to steeping it smelled like mint, chocolate, and a woodsy type scent. After steeping it was more like a smoked cocoa mint but less woodsy than before the steep. The coloring is a light brown. The taste is slightly bitter but not bad. I think it’s from the coco attempt which isn’t well known while tasting but the mint is nice – again not over powering but moreso than the coco. There’s a malty taste in there as well…can’t quite put my finger on in…all-in-all it’s a fair attempt at something different…I think I will give it a thumbs up.
Excellent! True English Breakfast – Hard to believe it’s Decaf.
Incredibly smooth today…esp for a black tea. LOVE IT
Normally I don’t like fruity herbals. But something made me try this. I bought it in bulk at my local herb store…which is awesome because I did a half of scoop so I think it will be at least 6 to 10 cups worth and it was only $1.07 for what I bought! Anyhow…It’s a reddish purple in color. Prior to steeping the blend smells like mint and fruit. After the steep is complete the fruit scent is more prominent. The taste is interesting. Never tasted anything quite like it. It’s fruity but just enough. It’s minty which offsets the fruit. It’s a creative and fun blend. I’m drinking it hot but think it would be great iced. :)
Perfect end to today! Great taste and scent!
Same as before…running low
Smells great while storing in glass container. Fruity and Floral scent after steeping. The coloring is of the darkest I have seen for a white tea. Very nice cuppa. It’s certainly true to a white tea flavor with tangerine undertones. Quite Refreshing. I like it a lot.
WHOA! Holy Lemon Grass AND Ginger! This stuff is pretty potent! The aroma is intense before steep and even after steeping. Some Ginger Teas freak me out. The first taste of this one had me questioning…but the follow up sip pushed me over to the “I can deal with this” side. I am not totally sure if I would buy this again…that could change. It’s fairly good for a Lemon Ginger so I will go with a thumbs up.
Resteep – Sweet and Floral. Very Nice
Prior to steeping this smells like flowers and coconut. The coloring is that of a darker white tea or maybe even looking more like a steeped Oolong (color wise). During and after steep you can smell the white tea scent more with a hint of coconut and earthy or floral smell. The taste is unique. It’s sweet but flavorful eventho it’s hard to pick out the different flavors as they blend perfectly with each other. The Coconut is NOT overpowering at all…what a delightful blend. I really like this. I wonder how it does on the resteep? Might have to try that later.
Prior to steep it smells like a chocolate/Hazelnut Coffee. The coloring is a medium brown and semi cloudy. After steeping it smells more like a plain nutty coffee/Tea blend. The packaging and Infusion presentation is neat. This sample isn’t what I would normal pick out for myself but I am glad that I am trying it. It’s pretty good without being overwhelming. I don’t think I would buy it individually but am enjoying the sample. Therefore I will give it a thumbs up.
Yup! This does the trick for a Monday Morning! Awesome Cup…I like to oversteep this one…
Equal parts Infusion Tea Plum Oolong (Resteep – weak) and Teavana Earl Grey. You can taste the Earl Grey with hints of oolong and plum. It blends nicely.
Backlogging. Last Night I finished up our stash with a nice HOT oversteeped Cup. I will be sorry to see this one go.
Last of the iced I made. LOVED it! SO did the hubby…
