431 Tasting Notes
Thank you LiberTEAS for sending me this lovely blend. I truly was excited to try this and I did enjoy it, mostly because the pear really came through. I didn’t score this higher because to me the rooibos and the pear didn’t blend together as well as I would have liked. It was like they were two separate entities forced to be roommates and only sort of got along. I felt there needed to be another buffering agent added to make it all mesh together a little better. Although, I don’t know what it would be. Nevertheless, still worth a try and still very happy I had a chance to try it.
It’s cold in Chicagoland today and I thought let’s try something bold and this does the trick every time. I am so surprised I hadn’t reviewed this already. I had tried this neat and it is very robust but not at all bitter. It is quite flavorful. Today I tried it with a bit of agave and a splash of milk which is very rare for me but I thought let’s give it a shot. It still tastes good but I feel like I enjoy it better straight which is typical for me. It is still bold and holds up very well with the milk. It basically just mutes the boldness a bit and gives it a creamier feel.
Yummy, yum, yum! I loved this one. It was like a pie in a cup. I even re-steeped it and then results were just as pleasing. The lime tastes so fresh and juicy. I really need to try this iced but it was a sample I received with my order so I need more. I do highly recommend it.
I truly enjoyed this tea but the whole time I was drinking it I kept thinking it is missing something. Every sip kept trying to pull a memory out of me but because it was missing that ingredient I couldn’t quite grab it. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed the flavor and am very happy my dear husband and daughter thought of me and bought the tea set. I also got the Holiday Spice Black Tea but I haven’t tried it yet.
Thank you LiberTEAS for sending this tea!
I loved the scent coming out of the bag but the flavor was more of a surprise. It smelled similar to the dry leaf smell once steeped but the flavor was slighly floral and a touch fruity but the bulk of it was a dry sort of earthy like flavor, not as robust but close.
Very interesting that’s for sure.
First Thank you Doulton for sending me this tea.
As of late I have contemplated making a purchase of my own from The NecessiTeas and I am racked with some many potentially great choices but I don’t like spending money on shipping especially if I am not sure if I will like what I get. I hate to buy all samples and then pay $6.75 on shipping or buy just one $10 tea and then $6.75 on shipping. If I am going to have to spend money on shipping then I want to take advantage of the flat rate and buy as much as I can or afford. Then it dawned on me that I did in fact have a tea from them so I decided to have it now. At least then I get an idea on quality and if I think I may like their offerings. First, it is a rooibos and I find like so many far and in between. Next, banana in tea is hard to wrap my head around but still I will try most things at least once. With that said it wasn’t too bad. It is slightly sweet. I get the chocolate flavor way at the end and even after the swallow. I am not getting the Banana Split taste but it is yummy. I would drink it again and I am glad I got to try it. Having this does give The NecessiTeas one point towards a purchase but it wasn’t the slam dunk I was hoping for. Although, I bet an order will come into play sometime soon. The problem is I don’t know what to get.
First, Thank you LiberTEAS for sending me some of this tea and with that said… DANG!!! This is some good stuff. I am so happy I ordered it anyway. I have ordered from Frank 3 times this month and the month isn’t even over yet. I told my husband I have another man in my life and before I could even finish my sentence he said…“Tell Frank I said Hi” we then both cracked up. Nevertheless, this delivers what it promises. I taste the white chocolate, vanilla, and spearmint very well and the flavors dance happily together. The honeybush adds to the flavor profile without taking over which I appreciate the most. Another winner from Frank, way to go!
Thank you Doulton for sending me this tea.
I tasted the cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavors are really light. Unfortunately, I didn’t get an Eggnog flavor, I felt the roobios flavor was strongest then followed by a hint of the cinnamon and nutmeg. I will try other ways to make this and see if it improves in the future.
Thank you Meghann for sending me this tea, I am very glad to have tried this.
I am not sure if I really like this as much as I hoped. I feel like I was reaching to taste the elderberry and I did, or at least I think I did but only a little. I plan on trying this again and playing with the leaf and steep times. I bet I can get to like it better.
