4 Tasting Notes
I was disappointed with this tea after I left the store. The taste minded me of the unfortunate days as a child when I was sick and I had to take liquid medicine. I feel as if a non-fruity tea were added it would vastly improve the taste.
The tea tastes artificial and leaves pungent notes as an aftertaste.
Flavors: Artificial, Bitter, Citrus, Cranberry, Medicinal, Sweet
An employee offered me a sample of this tea in store and I was eager to bring some home with me. Seeing as it was a chilly Minnesota winter the warmth of the holiday season resonated with each sip. The ‘chocolate’ was mild and not choking like some cocoa based teas and the peppermint was wonderfully warm. I found that this tea tended to lean towards the ‘thin’ side if steeped too high and the peppermint became a little unsavory.
I would definitely recommend this if they carry it again in the winter months for when you don’t want dense hot chocolate.
Flavors: Butter, Chocolate, Creamy, Peppermint, Winter Honey
I initially purchased this for the high caffeine content but was pleasantly surprised at it’s more sour notes which I enjoy in tea. Steeping lower than the recommended temperature yields more forgiving sourness but I do not recommend going over any of the recommendations as you will denature the flavors and it will become quite unpalatable.
Flavors: Fruity, Hibiscus, Lemon, Pleasantly Sour
