4847 Tasting Notes
When I received this package in the mail, it was abundantly fragrant! I could smell the teas before I even opened the package.
The flavor is very nice – the chocolate has more of a savory flavor than a sweet one – which I am sure has just as much to do with the spices (especially the chicory) as it does the chocolate.
Not my favorite rooibos blend but I’m still enjoying it.
A very pleasant Earl Grey. I wrote a full-length review of this tea earlier this month, you can check it out here:
This is very nice! I had my doubts (the fear of the Goji Berry strikes again!) but it is really pleasant tasting.
The berry flavor is sweet with a little bit of tart… and with this particular blend, I do get more of the goji berry tartness in the finish – and that tartness is what I typically shy away from when it comes to the goji berry, but in this blend it is done so well that I don’t find it off-putting. I love the little touch of pomegranate in this, as well as the lemongrass notes.
Another hit from Praise Tea!
One of the things that I absolutely adore about this tea (aside from it’s amazing flavor) is the aroma! As it brews (and now, as the cup sits here in front of me) the scent takes on the most delightful honey-esque scent. Delightful!
I wrote a full-length review for this tea which will publish this Friday on the SororiTea Sisters blog. In the meantime, please feel free to consult my previous tasting notes about this tea.
Thank you Rachel for sending me a bit of this to try!
This is really good. Apricot and pineapple are two flavors I wouldn’t have thought of combining, but they work really well together. It is sweet and nectar-like, but not so much that it doesn’t taste like tea either. A nice balance.
Yum! Thanks Rachel!
Today is my family’s thanksgiving, so I’m going crazy in the kitchen. The teas that I’ll be reaching for today are some tried and true favorites like this one – ones that I’ve already tasted, enjoyed, and about which I’ve already shared my thoughts.
I did want to make one note on this one, though… I read mrawlins2’s tasting note on this one where she indicated a similarity to Dawn… and I want to say that I can taste that as well. There are some definite cocoa notes… this one isn’t as bold or chewy as Dawn, but there are definitely some similarities.
This tisane isn’t on the Suffuse website, it is part of their Festive Medley (which is also not on their website yet).
I am not big on eggnog… I don’t dislike it, but it isn’t something that I go out of my way to consume, either.
This is pretty good… I can taste the eggnog flavor. It’s a nice, creamy kind of taste. The rooibos flavor is light, not heavy on the woody flavor but nice, nutty hints that go well with the eggnog flavor.
