455 Tasting Notes
I had a cup of coffee this morning, and then this, and now I’m jittery. I only get jittery if I have a cup of caffeinated tea after a cup of coffee, so I don’t for one second believe that this is caffeine-free, despite what the box says.
A Chinese coworker gave my boyfriend this tea, and he gave me a few bags to try.
He loves white tea, but it’s not usually my favorite. But this one is pretty good! Very smooth, very drinkable and surprisingly flavorful. I can’t really describe the taste, other than as a nondescript, vegetable note, but it’s definitely there and definitely palatable.
Not bad, although it’s probably the Lipton of Chinese white tea.
My boyfriend told me to get this one because he has it at work and he says it’s really good for when you’re sick.
I accidentally uploaded the wrong picture for this (helpfully, Higher Living uses the exact same design and colors for their Lemon & Ginger blend….), and then of course Steepster doesn’t let you change the default picture. I uploaded the right one for it, but you have to click on the tea and then click on Other Images to see it.
I was crazy anxious last night, and it helped a lot. It’s soothing and surprisingly mild. It almost has a sugar cookie taste to it. The longer you let it steep, the better it gets.
Very good for anyone who wants the benefits of ginger without the intense spiciness.
Flavors: Cookie, Ginger, Lemon Zest
Yick. Yick. Yiiiiick.
I hate this stuff. I hate licorice and I hate teas that taste like they already have Dolores-Umbridge amounts of sugar in them without me adding any.
I’m just gonna toss the last bag of this vile stuff. Thank God it’s out of my life.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Licorice, Sweet
The green rooibos was the appealing part for me. I’ve never tried it before.
I sniffed the dry bag and had a mini panic attack— surely they wouldn’t DARE put stevia in this tea! I reread the ingredients and breathed a sigh of relief. It’s just naturally sweet from all the fruit.
The hibiscus somehow doesn’t make my lips pucker with disgust! It’s a miracle. I taste lots of cherries and jam, and even a echo of wine in the aftertaste. Not bad! I’m starting to reconsider Tazo.
Hoping to sip this one down within the week… It’s a fall tea, and it’s technically springtime, so I really need to get my act together here! Lol
I taste butter, salt, caramel, and even some bitter cocoa. Not terrible for a bagged tea (I really need to start buying more loose leaf stuff) but nothing to write home about either. Base is a bit astringent and can be easily oversteeped.
Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Butter, Caramel, Cocoa, Salt
