46 Tasting Notes
(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.
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 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.
