4847 Tasting Notes
This is the tea that was calling out to me today. I wanted something bold and brisk… this one certainly is!
Very rich, brisk, and malty! It is enough to get me to shake the sleepy and that overwhelming desire for me to crawl back into my warm bed and even powerful enough to get me to compose a review for it – which I just submitted to the Tea Review Blog. It should publish within the next day or two!
Well, I’m about to head out with my little one to go trick-or-treating, but I thought I’d warm up with a cup of this first.
The more I drink this, the more I’m liking it.
I wrote a review of it for the Tea Review Blog… wanna read it?
PS: I increased the numeric rating on this because I’m enjoying it so much this evening.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss For sending me some of this tea to try! It’s delightful!
The key to this tea is: water not too hot, brew for just 3 minutes. It doesn’t need any sweetener, it is very pleasant as is. The flavors are bright and seem to sparkle like a glass of champagne! I can almost taste the bubbles!
Thank you to Rachel for sending me some of this to try! I didn’t order it when it was introduced – I don’t know why! And now that I’m tasting it, I really wish I had!
This is fantastic! Smooth and creamy. I am contemplating adding a splash of cream to it to enhance the creaminess, but, since I’m about to write a review of this for the Tea Review Blog, I wanted to first experience it without the cream… and it is really good like this. Delicious!!!
Thank you Rachel for sending me a bit of this to try! I’ve not tried anything from Argo, so I was happy to have this opportunity.
This has a strong honey scent with soft notes of lemon. It’s really quite sweet smelling and very pleasant.
The black tea is a strong tea. Crisp, but not overly astringent. The lemon is just barely there, and I thought that maybe the honey was too, but as I continue to sip it, the flavor develops nicely. It has a very pleasing balance of flavor.
I’ve tasted a lot of blends that are heavily reliant upon hibiscus as the primary ingredient. I’m not usually a fan of these types of blends, but I really like this one… because even though hibiscus IS the primary ingredient, it is the combination of the other ingredients that makes this one intriguing.
I love the sarsaparilla in this, it adds just enough interest to the cup to make the taste buds perk up and say “hey… I like that!” The vanilla gives a soft sweetness to the cup.
Very pleasant cup!
I love this tea! The banana flavor is quite delicate, and in fact, I think it tastes a bit more like a plantain than banana, because it doesn’t have that distinctive sweetness of a banana.
But the green tea is what really is awesome in this blend – it tastes so good. Vegetative and sweet. EXCELLENT!
