144 Tasting Notes
I want it to be winter! Where is all the snow?! At least I can drink the winter collection and pretend…
This one is a bit weak but good. I can taste the chili coming through and there is a nice tiny bit of bite from that. The chocolate is definitely there! But I’m not really getting chai from this. The flavour is a bit weak as I think others have said, but I like it, if only for the bite from the chili. I’ll be trying this again, with more tea per cup!
Mmmm, Kanpe. It’s been too long.
I always drink this in my clear mug because the colour is so beautiful. It’s a dark, deep ruby red. I’m not sensitive to hibiscus and have never experienced any of the bad things about it that people talk about. To me this tea just tastes tart and sweet and lovely. Sometimes this actually tastes more like juice to me than like tea but whatever it is, I’m happy to drink it.
I’m gonna be honest with you MM, you know I love you but… I wish you tasted as good as you smelled. Yeah you taste great but you smell REALLY great. I just feel like you could do better. And sometimes there’s a little bit of bitter weirdness in the background when I take a sip of you. Hey, don’t look so sad. I would still gladly take a cup of you every morning. You know you’re the only mulberry tea for me.
Well the scent is very nice, both of the dry leaves and the steeped tea. It smells fruity. But the taste is very different. Hmmm, first I thought, very sweet… then pow something kind of bitter and dull and vegetal emerges! I’ve never eaten cactus, but this tea does somehow make me think of one. At least this is certainly something I’ve never tasted before. Very strange but not something I would buy again. Maybe for summer though.
Okay… I just poured a second cup and this time put agave in it. It’s much better! The weird bitterness is gone and it’s transformed into a nice sort of melony taste. Maybe there is hope for this tea after all.
My first tea from Teaopia. When I went in the store they were talking about how much they hate Davids Tea, but a lot of their products/advertising etc looks very similar…
Anyway, about the tea. If I were to do a blind test on this I’d probably say it’s just a straight up earl, but a very nice one. It’s not like the Davids version which is much creamier. If I really try I can kind of taste the creaminess cutting the bergamot a little. Mehh, this one is okay. It’s a good tea but not what I was expecting.
When I first saw this tea I was thinking: “soooo much lemongrass D:” I am not a big lemongrass fan. It usually tastes soapy and bitter to me. But this tea is actually okay. It’s spicy and cinnamony and lemony. I can’t taste the pineapple or coconut at all but maybe they’re there in the background, adding some subtle dimension that I can’t really consciously pick up? That’s what I would like to think anyway! This is an interesting tea for every once in a while, but I’d really only drink it when I have a sample or if it’s offered to me.
This is my first tea from Tealish. The dry leaves smell sooooo good and vanilla-y! The tea itself is just like what it says— black tea with vanilla. It’s not so much creamy as it is vanilla-y but, just like David’s Cream of Earl Grey, it gets creamier as it cools. Overall I say very good! The black tea is smooth and rich and with the vanilla it’s a perfect and simple dessert or morning tea.
