Without much research or thought I did something kind of silly…I made iced tea with this sample from Verdant. I poured myself a glass to take to work and I was not very happy with the results. It tasted chocolaty! Well, low and behold that is all over the description and tasting notes. I’m sure it would be delish hot, but not cold….I guess I will warm the remainder that I have iced and enjoy!
23 Tasting Notes
I have been drinking lots of tea lately, but have been too busy to sit down and log anything. I’m sitting now and enjoying a glass of Ginger Peach iced and lightly sweetened. Actually, this is the last of my small purchase of this yummy tea. For me this tea has a great balance of ginger and peach that compliments the black tea well. I will buy more!
This is the first oolong that I’ve ordered. I’m not going to rate it yet, because I don’t feel it would be fair. I really need to try a couple of other ones to have a benchmark. I’m on my first steep, and so far it is just okay. I will have to try some other oolongs to know if it is oolong in general, or this version…
I purchased the Domatcha brand after reading favorable comments here. I found a fantastic deal on ebay, so that made the price reasonable. I am a novice to matcha, however, compared to two other plain matchas I’ve tried this very good. The color is vibrant green, the smell is lightly grassy, and the taste is very fresh and almost sweet. I do not detect any bitterness. I like it!
I thought I would drink and make a note on this tea today being that it is St. Patrick’s day…This is a nice tasting rooibos. I can taste both the mint and chocolate, but I would love this tea if both of those flavors were bolder…I guess I was looking for more of a minty hot chocolate, which I’m sure it’s not intended to be…It is good though and I am enjoying it hot, lightly sweetened and with a splash of coconut/almond milk.
I was fortunate to receive this in a swap with Emily M! I chose the tea on a whim because of the name. I have NO IDEA what mulberries taste like, so I have no basis for comparison to them. I do really like this tea enough to purchase it. There is a richness to it, which may be the macadamia or the mulberry. In any case it’s really nice and tasty. I drake the majority of it iced and lightly sweetened, but it was also really good on it’s own and hot. Thanks Emily M!
I received this a free sample for Teajo…And, I should say that it was a really generous sample! It just so happened that I consumed an entire fresh mango late last night. This morning I decided it would be a great time to sample while I had mango on my mind. The tea has a really wonderful aroma, quite mango-y. It is really smooth and light in flavor. The Mango flavor is distinguishable and tasty. I enjoyed it plain/hot and sweetened/hot. I also enjoyed a glass iced very much! I’m glad that I still have enough left for several servings:).
I have enjoyed this tea twice now. As others have commented, the watermelon taste is indeed juicy and delicious. I tried it warm with and without sweetener, as well as iced and sweetened. So Good!
I was really excited to try this tea. It is beautifully handcrafted and special, so I had high expectations. I steeped one of the “pods” in approx 16oz water for 15-20 minutes. I used this long steep time because my plan was to ice it. I tasted it first right out of the kettle and did not get much flavor. I then sweetened it a bit hoping that would bring out the flavor and it did not change it to me…I did end up drinking it as iced tea as planned but it did lack any depth of flavor. It is entirely possible that my method was the problem.

This was my first berry tea. Perhaps because of this, I found the blueberry taste was clearly present. I enjoyed the cup of tea quite hot but I think I would really like this iced with a little sweetener. This tea most def. made me yearn for more. Thank you Yssah!
Steeped fairly long and with the addition of almond milk/sweetener this tastes like a delicious orange cocoa…
This was my first loose leaf tea purchase…I have purchased many others since. With the others there are qualities I like and do not like. For me this blend is a really great balance of tea/spices. I enjoy it hot or cold, and with sweetener (xylitol)/almond milk. Soooo good! Sometimes I use the pan method and other times I don’t. I do always let it steep well beyond 5 minutes.
Yummy:)! I had a sample of this I’d been saving for the right moment. That was such an awesome cup of tea. I think I’m going to have to splurge for a couple of ounces. I would love to brew up some ice tea with it…Going for the 2nd steep now.

I was super excited to try this tea. It is a tasty tea, for sure. To me though it tasted like Cinnamon Crackle, which I like. So while that is not a bad thing, it’s just not a oatmeal cookie to me.
This am was the second time I enjoyed this tea. I prepared it a little stronger using 2t for about 6 oz water. I’m finding I like my flavored teas with lots of flavor. Without a doubt this reminds me of the hot tamale candy I enjoyed so much as a kid. It was a very tasty cup of tea!
I received this tea in my Mystery Box and it has turned out to be a staple for me. I’m not a big fan of Sees chocolates with the creamy fruit centers, BUT this actually does taste exactly like one with an orange flavored center and I LOVE IT.
I’m brand new to tea so I don’t feel that my palate is yet qualified to make any “deep” tasting notes…However, I could not resist saying this tea is RIDICULOUSLY delicious!
