11 Tasting Notes
Made this tisane as an iced tea and it was so refreshing on a hot day. Nice tart (but not too tart) lemon flavor with a little spark from the ginger. I think it would also be very soothing as a hot tea, but I definitely liked it as a more sophisticated lemonade to beat the heat.
During most of the winter I like hot, smooth teas like caramel and vanilla, but this is sort of a summer equivalent of a smooth, comfort tea (as compared to a more tangy or sharp fruit tea). I can’t really distinguish the individual flavors, but it’s a pleasant iced tea that’s a nice change of pace, but I still tend to prefer fruit flavored black teas in the summer.
Drinking this iced today and it’s so yummy. I tend to love vanilla teas and caramel teas, so this is perfect for me – very smooth but rich. I had this hot during the winter, and enjoyed it, but I wasn’t sure how it would be iced but it’s great.
I usually try flavored tea, so this is a bit different for me when it’s just the natural flavor of the tea. I was making some in my timolino this AM, and I almost couldn’t put the leaves in the brew basket because the leaves were so long! So this brew may not be ideal, but it’s a very rich, layered tea. It’s not at all bitter and it’s a nice full, satisfying tea. Perfect for this blustery, windy day.
I can’t describe the individual flavor notes from this tea just yet, but overall, it’s very smooth and rich with deep flavors. It’s storming rain outside, and this tea seems like the perfect drink to counteract the weather. All I need is a good book and down blanket and this tea to cuddle up and avoid the rain.
Love the depth of taste and smoothness of this rooibos – so comforting. Perfect way to end the day, or to take the edge off a difficult afternoon at work. I shared some with a coworker who was pretty dubious since he’s mainly a coffee drinker, and he came back and asked for some more the next day.
I prefer black tea and have had a hard time finding a green tea that I really enjoy. But I placed an order for a number of sample sizes of green tea and this is the first one I tried. So far I really like it. It’s got enough flavor that it doesn’t seem too bland, but it still has a nice light flavor. I’ll definitely be trying this again which is more than I can say about most green teas I’ve tried.
