749 Tasting Notes
I was really excited about this because I LOVE watermelon. Love it. I’m finding that this isn’t a true watermelon taste though. It’s not bad, just not what I was expecting.
I’ll enjoy the rest of my stash but I don’t think I’ll re-purchase.
On a good note, I’m on the Dexter season finale for season 6. Only one season left to catch up on after this!
Thank you KittyLovesTea for yet another awesome tea sample :)
The smell for this one is a little bizarre. There’s chocolate in the scent somewhere though.
Perhaps chocolate teas just aren’t for me. This one is well done, but it’s not my favourite by any means. I’m really enjoying the white tea base but not so much the chocolate.
Thanks to KittyLovesTea for this one!
Hopefully the coconut will redeem the rooibos. I can still taste that bizarre flavour but the other ingredients are definitely toning it down :) This is one I can survive!
Perhaps the 5 minute steep time is the trick to these rooibos teas. Hmm. I’ll have to conduct an experiment.
Thanks KittyLovesTea for this sample! The moment I saw it pop up on my feed I wanted to try it. I was so excited then, realizing they only shipped with the UK I was disappointed. However, you were awesome enough to send me some, so I’m happy once again haha.
Also I’m on my last chapter of studying for my exam tomorrow!
Smells delicious, like an almond sweet but not overwhelmingly so.
Oh yes this one is a lovely balance of almond and tea. It’s actually really nicely done. The almond is there but not in-your-face, and the tea is also there but not overpowering the almond. I may have to set up some sort of agreement to have this one on hand (or relocate to the UK)!
Update: 2nd steep slightly less flavour, still tasty.
Thanks to KittyLovesTea for this one – and so many others I can’t wait to try!
I’m personally not a fan of eggnog, but perhaps I will like eggnog flavoured tea :) It does smell like eggnog. Like spicy eggnog. That must be the cinnamon.
Well it has that bizarre “medicinal” rooibos taste I can’t shake, but the aftertaste is quite nice. It’s reminding me of something I can’t quite put my finger on…
Thank you Vanilla Beans for sending me this awesome sample as well :)
This one smells interesting. Not necessarily good or bad. Just interesting. It also brews up a deep red colour, which has never been a great sign for me. Thus far I don’t think anything that’s brewed up this colour I’ve kept or even enjoyed.
Well it isn’t Pineapple Oolong or Aloha Pu’erh bad, but not my favourite. Must be the hibiscus.
Thanks again Vanilla Beans!
