28 Tasting Notes
Another tea gifted by @EmilyGee. I love it! The dry tea smells lovely and is only a little less aromatic once brewed. I’m very fussy about fruit teas. And I’m a huge fan of raspberry stuff. This one isnt bad. Not overly artificial tasting, pretty decent actually. Man, maybe I’m just not very good at reviewing tea or they’re all starting to blend together for me lol. Overall, I think the vanilla helps to make the raspberry not so tart or even maybe tones down any artificial raspberry taste because this is pretty good!
Flavors: Raspberry, Vanilla
Got this as a sample from EmilyGee, thanks so much Emily!
Oh I DO like this tea! I’m a big fan of peach, so this definitely delivers a peachy taste! I could do without the floaties in my cup, but I’ll deal. It has a slight hard candy taste at the end that I haven’t quite decided if I like or not, but there’s definitely no bitterness or astringency..
EDIT: Ya, that hard candy taste at the end is not to my liking. I think I may pass on making this my ‘go to’ peach tea. The search continues!
Flavors: Candy, Peach
Received this from EmilyGee to try, thanks Emily!
It smells more chocolate/orange dry than it does when brewed. I don’t sense the orange anywhere except maybe a slight hint of citrus right at the end. But it’s ever so faint, I miight even just be willing my tastebuds to notice it.
The chocolate is there, but in a very earthy sense as opposed to the sweet commercial sense. Or it could just be that I’m not familiar with pu-erh tea and the earthiness is from that.
I don’t think it’s orangy enough for my liking, so I doubt I’d buy it in future.
Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Earth
I was recommended this tea because I like Buddha’s Blend. She probably suggested it because they both have hibiscus. But they do not taste the same. Unfortunately this one tastes like watermelon and I hate watermelon! Oh well, at least I only bought a very small amount. Moving on.
Raspberry? There’s raspberry in this? I don’t get raspberry at all. Coconut? Yes. Chocolate? Yes. Even butter? Yes. But no raspberry. Which is disappointing because I really like raspberry. Oh well, if you want coconut, this may be the one for you. Buttery and smooth…
Flavors: Butter, Chocolate, Coconut
I forgot Bulk Barn sold loose leaf tea. This is one of four that I picked up and it was the one I was most looking forward to trying. I was very saddened to see that it was the lowest rated of the four on Steepster though!!
Well, I’ve since tried it and it’s not bad. The orange tastes a little artificial and the taste isn’t as orangey as the scent was, but I wouldn’t kick it out of bed for trying. ;)
Still very drinkable, I just wouldn’t steep it too long in case it becomes bitter or too astringent.
Flavors: Medicinal, Orange
