62 Tasting Notes

Aroma: Strong, sweet, fruity
Liquor Color: Light red/pink
Liquor Flavor: Sweet, artificial fruit flavor, weird aftertaste
Notes: Sample does not taste like the sample in store, although this one is a lot less sweet, it’s still not that great. The scent out of the bag was overpowering, once brewed, I thought it had a weird after taste.

Aroma: Spicy cinnamon
Liquor Color: Brown
Liquor Flavor: Cinnamon with a light sweet aftertaste, smooth base that doesn’t compete with the cinnamon flavor
Notes: I thought the cinnamon would overpower the black tea base but it didn’t. They were both represented very well. The sweet cloves added a nice hint of sweetness which I didn’t expect.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves

drank Mango by Harney & Sons
62 tasting notes

Aroma: Sweet, fruity almost like candy, fairly strong but pleasant
Liquor Color: Burgundy
Liquor Flavor: Smooth black tea base, crisp, natural sweet mango flavor with a hint of floral
Notes: First impression when I smelled the dry tea was very good except I was nervous because the smell was almost too good to be true. Once brewed, I was pleasantly surprised. Smooth base blends well with the mango flavor, not artificial tasting and powerful enough to taste the flavor rather than the base.

Aroma: Licorice, sweet, minty, refreshing
Liquor Color: Golden yellow
Liquor Flavor: Sweet licorice, peppermint, cinnamon
Notes: I feel like this is a tea you either love or hate. On that note, I LOVE it. The moment I took a sniff, I just knew it was going to be amazing. The cinnamon, peppermint and licorice all are perfectly blended. I love how the flavors change with one being more prominent and letting another flavor take over as you finish your sip. This was great for rebrewing. I had multiple cups and each time the flavor changed but still was as strong as the first. I regret only buying a sample size. Yum!

Flavors: Cinnamon, Licorice

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 0 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Aroma: Mint, savory, buttery
Liquor Color: Deep straw
Liquor Flavor: Very savory, remind me of a soup broth, refreshing mint, buttery mouth feel, smooth
Notes: I can’t say I really liked this since it reminded me of soup. Not something that I reorder, but it’s something that I will finish. Maybe I’ll give it another shot and update my review.

Aroma: Refreshing, sweet cantaloupe, light
Liquor Color: Bright yellow
Liquor Flavor: Creamy mouth-feel, floral, sweet, melon, smooth
Notes: I have no words for how amazing this is. Tastes like a sweet fresh cantaloupe, so smooth, so wonderful. The smell is intoxicating. I could sit there and smell the leaves all day. Wow. Just… Wow.

Aroma: Banana, walnut, sweet
Liquor Color: Deep red
Liquor Flavor: Rick keemum base with a sweet but subtle banana flavor followed by a nutty walnut aftertaste
Notes: I wasn’t too sure about the keemum tea as a base, but all around it was pretty good! First sip, I didn’t really get the banana walnut notes but as my tea cooled they definitely got a little more prominent. Banana taste is very natural and blends really well with the keemum base. Great comfort tea!

Bio

My love of tea began with a quest to find the best bubble tea. After some research I found an Asian inspired tea shop that happened to serve amazing bubble tea, as well as loose tea. I was really new to loose tea but my friend ordered jasmine pearl tea. Once I took a sip, I was hooked! Tea soon became my new passion.
