206 Tasting Notes
I was so excited to steep this one this morning and take it to work. I am a coconut fanatic, but… im afraid this one was a miss for me. it was a very thick brew and I agree with some of the tasting reviews that it did taste a little like coconut milk and coconut water, which I am ashamed to admit, but I have no liking for either. It also had somewhat of an artificial taste to it. I really liked the white tea base though. I must try this as a cold brew though, as from what I can see from previous reviews, those that did not enjoy it hot, did however enjoy it cold so I will have to try sometime this week! and will change my rating then:) But for now, the verdict is a no, for now.
Drinking this before bed. Hopefully it helps me get to sleep for work in the morning at 6am:( at first it tastes like a normal chamomile then u get after notes of the peppermint on your tongue and Roobios in your throat. It’s definitely a soothing cup of tea and is already going to work and putting me to sleep:) beautiful color also, from the Roobios I presume. Goodnight fellow steepsters.
I have been sick for the past week with tonsillitis, again…. 8th time in 2 years. I hate it. So this tea was a life saver and has been my rock. What I love about this tea is that it isn’t just peppermint. Its a mixture of so many soothing elements…its a must have if you are a peppermint tea lover or just to keep on hand when you are sick. Peppermint Herbal gets two thumbs up from this girl:)
Alright, so i’m a coconut fanatic so I was really looking forward to this tea. I tried it hot on Sunday and I have to say I was disappointed. It just tasted like a plain black tea to me. As I let it sit the coconut peeked its way through, not all the way but subtly. No sign of kiwi tho and I even added an extra piece;). So I decided to cold brew it over night and I had it for lunch this morning at work and guess what?! I found the kiwi! It tasted like a kiwi coconut water and was not so bad. I really love the idea of Handmade Teas company and concept and I can’t wait for the months to come and the different blends to come:) Overall, not a bad tea. Not one that is a must have, but it was a good experience. Thank you Handmade Tea!
This has been my favorite since I was little. I made my own chocolate chai cream tea:) steeped this baby in milk and added some chocolate chips and cinnamon on top:) perfection for my last day of chocolate class:) perfect for over cast rainy winter days. The creamyness the milk adds to the spicyness of the tea is a great combo and then the sweetness from the dark chocolate chips. :) heaven in a cup.
Tried this again since I hadn’t touched it in almost 3 months. Last time I brewed it straight into the milk and I loved it! This time however I brewed it normally and I loved the aroma it gave off and the color of the tea steeped was soooo beautiful! It was a dark and rich caramel color. The taste however was not the same… You could taste the chai spices and orange peel. I added sugar and the chocolate peek a booed its way through but not enough for my liking so I thought maybe a Dollop of milk will help? Nope. Weakens the tea for my taste. Ill stick to my first review a few months ago and save this one for milk steeps for winter and autumn :) this will not keep me from trying other pu-erh blends tho!
Cold brewed this one overnight and it smelled so fruity! You can definitely taste the passionfruit. A little tart from the hibiscus but just right. It’s very nice and the soft pink color it becomes when cold brewed is lovely. Next time though i will definitely add a few lemon wedges it would definitely compliment it very well.
I had this this morning. And I have to say the loose leaf looked like it would be this wonderful creamy vanilla-y tea! The almonds, and vanilla pods, and vanilla scent. It had a really earthy smell as well. The black tea base was a good choice but I have to say, it was not what I expected. Hot and unsweetened it just tasted like a morning black tea. So I let it sit to cool a little bit and it was still bland. So I added sugar and it got a little better and brought out the almond flavor. Then I let it sit for a little longer and added milk. Aaahhhhh hahhhh! I found the vanilla. The cooler it gets the sweeter and stronger it gets! This was definitely a nice blend but I’m going to have to continue searching for the perfect vanilla tea for me:) thank you to the persimmon tree tea company though!
I was soooooo looking forward to this tea! Especially since my favorite milkshake is a chocolate banana milkshake from fosters freeze. You get the banana and chocolate flavors but I’m not sure the roobios was a good pair with the flavors. It left a super funky taste. Maybe I’ll try it once more before I toss it in the to-go box.
