383 Tasting Notes
Today when I made this, I get toasted coconut, sweet plum, and vanilla. Last time I made it, I could taste licorice, but today I gave it a shorter steep time.
Yummmm! This is one blend by Zhena’s that hasn’t let me down. Trying to sip down this sampler set from them.
Flavors: Coconut, Plums, Vanilla
I really, really dig this one. The sour lime just works. Then again, I’m a huge fan of all things citrus.
It perfectly captures the essence of wintertime— spice with a bite, and of course, white tea to match the white snow. The thing I like about Numi is that their bagged teas taste like loose leaf teas. They just have a magic touch that not many other companies have in their bagged options.
Boyfriend has several coworkers and managers from the UK at his job, and one of them gave him these Earl Grey teabags from England. I wish I knew the brand—- they’re square and unmarked white filterbags, like the Celestial Seasonings teabags.
Holy God, is it amazing tea though. The base is nice and robust, with hints of cocoa and Assam-like astringency. The bergamot tastes both citrusy and spicy.
Oh yeah, this is the genuine article. He’s had the loose version of it, too, and says that it’s even better.
Picked up a bottle of the original kind. I just wanted kombucha all of the sudden.
This didn’t really taste like much. I prefer the Gingerberry kind. Ginger and kombucha were a match made in heaven. This plain kind was okay. It was something healthy to drink, and it wasn’t gross by any stretch. But I think if I’m going to drop the $4 for a single bottle of this stuff, I want it to be more memorable.
I’ve been wanting to try this one for forever… I finally found it at Shaw’s of all places (along with a fully stocked display of Caramel Apple Dream!)
I’m in love! This tastes EXACTLY like a sugar cookie. I’m on my second cup already. It’s a creamy tea, and it’s sweet and bready and buttery and perfect.
I wish they made this and the Caramel Apple year round, but I suppose if they did, they wouldn’t be as special.
It tasted good, don’t get me wrong. But it was kind of weird to see the oily film on the top after it steeped. I think it was from the chunks of coconut in the dry leaf, but it was still a bit unsettling.
The cocoa nibs make it rich and sweet, almost like hot chocolate. You really don’t need to add sweetener. As for the sea salt, I got a hint of it in the smell. It definitely doesn’t taste salty to me.
The longer you steep it, the better it tastes.
Still not worth the trip and the money, in my opinion. Just glad I got it out of my system for the foreseeable future.
I figured that I needed a low-maintenance, vanilla flavored, non-caffeinated tea to soothe my nerves, so this was the winner. It’s not fabulous, but it’s something to drink and it has no calories, so it’s saving me from eating my feelings. It’s got a tart edge to it, rounded out by the vanilla, and it’s fruity without being overbearing.
