105 Tasting Notes
Very bland and I tried it from thin to thick with various amounts of water (i default to 1/2 a tsp per 3 oz of water for matcha) and water temps (80C). Harneys and DoMatcha 2nd harvest are much better at this price range. Matcha also didn’t give me the matcha calm alertedness greatness feeling I tend to get from a good matcha.
There’s lavender in this tea! Its even in the picture! But not in the ingredients. Which I do NOT like one bit. With that said, I didn’t even tell my brother but he tasted it and immediately said “honestly. this tastes like soap” and while I enjoyed the tea I could see where he was coming from. Why is there lavender? Why? Its BERRY. So weird. steeped for 1.5 minute first infusion and 3 minutes second.
Wow. Everything about this tea is amazing. From the peachy tastes to the spicy finishes to the roasty taste yum! I want more! Unfortunately its super expensive but (to me) so worth it! Was definitely the highlight of my tea filled day. On 6th steep now and still going strong. Steeped (rinse) 30, 15, 30, 45…
I do not get teas that want to taste like coffee! This was okay but left some meh after taste. The caramel wasn’t very pronounced to me either. I am a huge fan of flavored rooibos! This one just wasn’t for me so much.
Moderately strong on the caramel, very on the light side with the salt but its there. Idk. I guess its there on the end which is where its supposed to be and I just am not caring for it. I think I’d like it more if the caramel was stronger. I was hoping for more but its just not there for me. Sample was frommmm.. i can’t remember? Someone awesome!
Slightly floraly mainly figgish tea. Uhm. I like lavender teas but the fig throws me off. Unique? But im Not a fan. Sample from kallieboo!
Received in a sample swap. Thanks! This stuff was so yum. Tastes like cookie dough without much chocolate and I didn’t miss the chocolate one bit at all. Sampled with my family with a light desert and we all loved it. Steeped for 3 minutes first steep 5 minutes first steep. The chocolate was mildly there first steep and was definitely gone second steep. We actually preferred the second steep and probably should have tried to work in third steep.
I LOVE Cinnamon teas and received this in a swap from KallieBoo. I didn’t find it nearly as overly powering Cinnamon as others – honestly I had the opposite opinion and would have preferred more cinnamon. This one was okay but certainly not something I’d order. I think I really prefer Cinnamon Rooibos. Also, lately I haven’t preferred many flavored blacks opting to keep flavored to rooibos and some white and greens.
