1149 Tasting Notes
Nice juicy mango flavor with a peppery honeybush base. I might prefer it on a different base, but I enjoy the elements individually. The best part of this tea is definitely its delicious scent – it really smells like fresh mango. The rebrew is mostly honeybush, but still enjoyable. I’ve had this a few times now, and I think I’m a fan! The mango and honeybush do end up working decently well together and make for a pleasant lukewarm or cold cup.
I received this tin as a super thoughtful Secret Santa gift. One of the teas making up this blend is puerh hazelberry, and I feel like that’s what I taste the most. The berry is a bit tart, and the base is a bit bleh since I’m not a puerh fan. I don’t really taste the other ingredients that are supposed to make this one up. With milk, the flavor is okay, but not special or even very good. I think the vision here is a little off. It’s not at all the tea I imagine Cardassians being so wild for. It’s also not red.
I had this warm, and it was really pleasant. It’s mildly spiced and fruity. I didn’t notice the black tea in the taste, but it wasn’t thin or lacking in flavor. Not something I’d order, but I’m glad I tried it! The strongest flavors were probably cinnamon and apple, but it managed to not taste like the million other teas with this flavor profile.
I still have plenty of teas from Cuppa Geek, but this is finally my last sample from the advent calendar! I really enjoyed most of the flavors, and at $18 for 26 teas, there’s no better deal out there. I’ll buy one every year if there is one!
This doesn’t taste how I expected. It has somewhat of a cider thing going on with tart fruit and mild spice. I drink it cold, and it’s decently complex and enjoyable. Sometimes it has a sparkly sort of soda quality. I don’t like the scent of this one, and the resteep is weird too, but the flavor is pretty nice! I guess I’d call the flavor spiced cranberry soda.
I have to say that this tea doesn’t taste like its name. The black tea is pretty strong, and it tastes nice. I also get a strong berry flavor. It tasted good without milk, but I added some anyway and like it this way too. I wish there were something like peanut butter here, but it is a nice berry black tea.
This one is so fresh and delicious. They use a high quality chamomile base, and there’s a good amount of lavender included so you can really taste it. They got the balance just right – nothing negative or weird. It tastes so lovely it’s hard to believe that only two ingredients can make such a satisfying flavor! I’ve enjoyed it both hot and cold.
I drank this tea to keep me awake on a long drive. The flavor is pretty simple. I get some toasted mate and a bit of dessertiness from the chocolate chips. I had it with almond milk, and it tasted decent, but not very interesting or special. It needed something to amp up the chocolate. As it was, it was mostly just toastiness, and it could have used some added complexity/intrigue.
