9 Tasting Notes
This was a sample from their catalog. I Prepared with a tiny bit of soy milk and a tiny bit of honey. Sipping on this the black tea is not overpowering at all. I can taste something that resembles alcoholic flavored extracts you would use in baking. It reminds me of a very artificial amaretto flavor I’ve had chocolate that tasted like that before. I believe this must be the caramel coming through and am quite disappointed. It is slightly creamy but not nearly to the extent that the Downton Abbey Ms. Patmore’s Pudding tea is. Which is one of my favorites. I do not recommend this tea to buy as it is quite boring and the quality resembles a lower priced tea bag.
Flavors: Alcohol, Artificial, Caramel
Got this at a coffee shop thinking it was regular matcha and was worried when I saw it had citrus since I don’t like citrus. Although I was pleasantly surprised. I like a few of the other teas this brand has to offer and actually enjoy stevia sweetened teas unlike most people.
-It smells very creamy and orange-y quite reminiscent from my childhood but I cannot place my finger on it . Also the smell reminds me of this liquid vitamin may have been vitamin C or something it tasted really good though.
-I think the woman may have added too much water because I’m mainly just getting sweetness creaminess and water. I’m going to have to try this another time with less water.
Flavors: Creamy, Orange, Sweet, Vanilla
Been using this tea up gradually since it’s from last year. I pretty much hate peppermint tea, this is the only one I tolerate and enjoy. The Stevia adds some great sweetness, it’s not too heavy of a mint flavor, the smoothness and creaminess really balance it out well.
Flavors: Creamy, Mint, Peppermint, Smooth, Sweet
It’s that time of the year again, I’m sick and have a lot of school work to get done but can’t think straight. Even though I hate peppermint I figured I needed to try this. Since this blend doesn’t have eucalyptus in it I mixed some Cold 911 tea in with it. Once brewed I added some Honey throat and lung tonic, non dairy half and half, and soy milk. I finished the cup but I wouldn’t say it was pleasant to drink nor helpful so far.
Flavors: Fennel, Herbs, Licorice, Mint, Peppermint
Sipdown! Trying this again a bit differently. I used about 14 oz of water almost boiling used 2 perfect teaspoons. To try and highlight the flavor I also added an eighth teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, stevia and some Vanilla soymilk. Doing this completely turned around my opinion on this tea. It has a very subtle coconut vanilla flavor, it is very smooth and creamy. I hated this tea the first 3 times I tried it. I’m so glad I finally made it delicious. Townshend’s Coconut Pouchong now has a competitor! To give you an idea of how turned around this tea is now it went from a 35 score for me to the second highest tea I’ve rated!
Flavors: Coconut, Creamy, Smooth, Vanilla
This is my second time trying this chai from the Zhena’s Chai sampler I bought. I added some soymilk and stevia to bring out the flavor. I cannot taste the coconut at all unfortunately but can taste some vanilla. The chai spices overall are pretty mellow and not very special.
I used a 16oz mug, filled it to the brim with boiling water then added two tea bags held them down at the bottom of the cup with a spoon, steeped for 9 minutes, then added several different types of cinnamon, a little ginger, and a little unsweetened vanilla cashew milk. This cup of tea was a very very nice treat and left me wanting another one when I finished it.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Cinnamon, Ginger, Molasses, Spices, Sweet, Sweet Potatoes
I have been drinking chamomile since I was a child, and have had many brands, this is by far the best I have ever had and I discovered it at a coffee drive thru, it is organic, the buds are fresh the tea bags are in nice packaging, the flavor is sweet and pure. No milk or sweetener was added.
Flavors: Floral, Honey, Sweet
My first time tasting this tea I used about 8.5 oz of water and added nothing to it it was horribly disappointing, this time around I used a little under 8 oz of water and steeped it for at least 7-8 minutes using boiling water. Then I added a bit of ceylon cinnamon, penzley’s spice mixed cinnamon , and a bit of Silk unsweetened vanilla cashew milk. I found that this method really brought out the tiramisu/white chocolate flavor undertones. It is a soothing sugar free dessert at bedtime.
