46 Tasting Notes
Love this tea! The leaves have a malty, mushroomy, yet fruity scent. The brew tastes super malty, along with cacao nibs and barley. There is a sweetness in there too though, and it seems to get sweeter as the tea cools down. It’s a bit astringent which I enjoy. A great morning tea!
I really enjoy this breakfast tea. It’s almost exactly what I look for in the morning. Smooth yet bold. It is strong enough for the morning, but also smooth and subtle enough for an afternoon sip.
(trying to get back into Steepster!!) tried a sample of this tea last night. I don’t usually care for flavored teas, especially those with bergamot. But I did enjoy this one. It was surprisingly smooth and the citrus was subtle. Definitely vanilla as well. Not something I’d reach for, but I can understand why it’s so popular.
first post in awhile! anyway, I actually like the bitterness in this tea. I prefer less vegetal green teas, so this one works for me. It doesn’t have a huge amount of flavor, but it is slightly vegetal, bitter, and punchy.
this is a nice tea for the current chilly early spring weather. the floral aroma gets me excited to see spring flowers. the dry leaf and brew have a very strong jasmine scent, but the tea is only subtle in jasmine flavor.A little bit of the grassy green tea comes through. The package says to steep for 5 minutes, but that was too long. the tea was too bitter. i’d say don’t do more than 3 minutes. A simple and refreshing tea.
I think this tea is adorable. I got a complimentary cup at the new NYC location. I’m usually NEVER a fan of flavored, or gimmicky tea, but this one just struck me the right way. It’s fun, and sparkly. The flavor is mostly cinnamon, with a bit of orange, and I think I detect some vanilla. Definitely not something I’d have around the house, but it would be great for a holiday party. The cinnamon has a nice warming effect, especially on this cloudy NYC day.
This is very roasty, and bold! Smooth and not a hint of bitterness. very nice.
This tea is soothing and delicious. I’m definitely tasting that dreamy incense flavor, as well as dark red wine and cacao. there is also a pleasing floral note. I’m also getting a flavor I can only describe as ‘leather’, one that I’ve had before in similar black teas. Truly, it’s ‘leather’ in the best possible way! This is a quality cup.
wow, i love this chai! I’m very particular with my masala chai- i find that most mixtures usually taste only of cardamom. this one is just right! it’s peppery, gingery, clove-y…sort of like a strong gingersnap cookie but with cardamom. i added it to hot milk and a little sugar. lovely!!
