60 Tasting Notes
Got this in a sampler from Teaopia. It’s not bad overall, but it’s really just a slightly sweet green tea, nothing really special.
I’m done the tin now, but I suspect it may have made a pretty good iced tea. I won’t be buying it to test the theory.
I will say the bits of fig in the loose tea were tasty.
I love how this tea smells.
I brewed it up last night for some iced tea and it’s got a pretty good flavor overall. Am I slightly disappointed that it doesn’t taste like an actual root beer float? Yeah, I am. But looking at it realistically, it’s tea.
And as a tea, it’s pretty darned tasty.
I am considering adding either whipped cream or root beer flavored vodka to it. Probably the whipped because it seemed to lack that super creamy flavor I expected.
I tried this partly because of the great reviews here. Chocolate, raspberry and almond? Sign. Me. Up.
When I open the tin, it smells like a raspberry truffle. Yum. Yet another tea I could just sit and smell all day long.
Once brewed, the taste lives up to the smell – so long as I use enough leaf.
This one will be staying on my shelf.
I waffle on this tea.
I really like passion tea from Tazo so I think that’s why this tea is ok to me – it’s full of hibiscus.
But, that’s also why I’m not always keen on the tea. It has an amazing cherry scent. I open the bag just to take a sniff once in awhile because it smells that good.
But I only brew it when I’m craving Passion tea because it has such a strong hibiscus flavor. I’ve tried brewing it for a shorter time. I’ve tried brewing it longer. Nothing seems to bring out the cherry more.
Maybe I should try it iced?
