109 Tasting Notes
Wonderful aroma and a solidly good flavor when steeped. Yes, you definitely can smell and taste the saffron! This tea is not too expensive so I was pleasantly surprised. Better than another much more expensive saffron-green that hypes that it is from a small business and helps people in Afghanistan. This tea is just solidly what it says it is.
Love this tea! Drank 2 cups every morning until I ran out. The advertising is that the flavor has complex layers of cacao, raisin, and black cherry. It does! Finally a tea that tastes precisely as it should. This tea is rich and sophisticated, and if I can’t get another bag, I’ll cry.
Flavors: Cacao, Raisins
This is a good-tasting detox tea. I polished off the box over the last week as I have one of those killer Summer colds; there is no part of me that is not infected and does not ache! I honestly think this helped move the virus along. I normally take supplements including mushrooms so I was shocked at the severity of this virus…but the tea actually seemed to help. I was drinking one-two cups per day.
You really want this tea to taste like its description…but it doesn’t. Very light, very “thin” flavor that just isn’t that great. Not buying Republic of Tea any more; they used to be decent for the price but there are so many other GREAT teas out there. This one will be hitting the garbage like many others.
We tried this at the tea room and loved it. Now making it at home, it tastes watery. I’ve tried progressively to increase the amount of tea and it just makes a muddy-flavored cup of tea. Not going to drink any more of this, and my husband has volunteered to drink the rest.
Really not very good. I just had a cup on a sip down and decided I am going to throw away the rest of the tea bags. I had purchased this awhile ago and stopped drinking it just because of time constraints, being on the road etc. Now that I no longer drink coffee my sense of taste has improved dramatically (I gave up all pop/soda about 37 years ago too). Now I can say that this doesn’t have a very good flavor and what it does is not good. Buh bye!
I tried this tea at The Wisteria Tea Room in Fort Myers, Fl and I liked it. So did my husband. We bought several packets of different kinds of tea to try at home. Once I got it home, I discovered that they must’ve used A LOT of tea in their teapot to get the flavor they did. The proscribed 1 1/2 tsp on the package is not even close to the flavor I sampled. That being said, it is a pleasant black tea with floral and fruit notes that isn’t too strong. I don’t know if I would buy this again, probably not. I like teas with more FLAVOR. It also bothers me that it lists “natural flavors;” tea makers take note, I usually avoid that.
Flavors: Floral, Fruity
