147 Tasting Notes
I love this tea. And that’s saying a lot from a person who doesn’t really love strong black teas in their tea blends. So easy to sip. Powerful black braces with no astringency no it delicately balances the floral and citrus components. Hubs got me 125g of this for Valentines. How he got it to the states is his secret but I can tell him it’s worth it. I’ll drink all of this I know it. It’s delicate and so flavorful. Perfect balance. Not what I would describe as a fruity tea in any way. It’s really incomparable
Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Lavender, Lemon, Orange, Rose
This was another suprise for me… like really. I got it as a sample and read the ingredient list and I was sure I wouldn’t like it too much. Leaves smelled of chocolate but had an odd thing..perhaps the chili. Dunno.
Steeped it up…..wow. I really havent found too many chocolate teas that I enjoy. They’re usually trying too hard or have a saccharine like quality to them.. like they’re trying to make milk chocolate tea and it’s always meh. This is like the unsweetened dark chocolate. It’s very very good. I don’t get a lot of chili in the fore front. I do get a bit of it in the finish. Just right there in the back. If you’re looking for a chocolate tea with more kick you wont be enamored here but if you’re looking for a good chocolate tea without the usual artificial thing…this is a good one. I will be buying more of this. the black base is so well balanced with this. You get all the flavors of a good chinese black with notes of chocolate and a hint of spice. Sipdown. I love it.
Flavors: Chocolate, Spices
Well maybe I’m getting old and can’t read the steeping instructions…that or I just did something wrong….perhaps too much tea…I don’t know. But it has to be something I did because I can’t imagine a tea that looks and smells so beautifully balanced could taste so awful lol!! So I am not giving this tea a rating atm. I am going to have to give it another go….maybe when I’m more awake and have my reading glasses on…
Je T’aime this tea. It’s really very lovely. Especially in the morning. It will become a staple tea in my home. Always on hand. Will write a more detailed review next time…too busy enjoying this early morning sip…
Flavors: Almond, Cookie, Nutty, Rose, Sweet
This is a surprisingly delicious tea! Dry leaves smell like a lemon spiced Christmas cookie..which sounds confusing but oh…. so so right….
Brewed up it is DELIGHTFUL! It’s honestly like drinking a cookie. The black base comes though but is not overpowering or astringent. I want more of this! Since this is a sample I will have to sipdown and savor this one cup….but it’s going on the wishlist!
A little bit of sugar would make this even better. I’ll have to try it out when I get more of it.
Flavors: Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, Cookie, Cream, Lemon, Spices
This is DELICIOUS!
I love the way the dry leaves smell. Very fruity in a dark berry kind of way. Steeped its delicious and juicy. Sipping it’s naturally sweet and not at all artificial. It has aromas of berries and sweet flowers. A little seductive rose….I can still taste a clean green tea base. Very well balanced. A true delight. I will continue to buy this tea!
Flavors: Apple, Green, Rose, Strawberry
Got this as a sample. I’m not one for Rooibos in the first place but every once in a while I have a blend that’s surprising. This was not one of those cases. Unfortunately I did not get the wide array of spices suggested in this blend. Honestly all I could taste was Rooibos and Peppercorn. No natural sweetness from flower petals or any of this Creamy flavoring. And no it did not take me to India. Not even close to India. Sip Down.
Flavors: Peppercorn, Rooibos
Got this as a mystery sample in my latest order. It is a nice green tea. Nothing too really call home about. I can taste the floral of the violet and geranium but I don’t get any melon. In fact there is very little fruity or sweet notes to this blend at all. It’s ok but not something I think I would buy.
It does make a much nicer iced tea. However there are more green teas on the market that would make a more refreshing glass iced and a more aromatic cup hot.
Flavors: Geranium, Green, Violet
