149 Tasting Notes
This tea is really starting to grow on me. I’ve decided to just forget about the fact that it is supposed to taste like tiramisu (because I don’t think it does). I’m just enjoying it for what it is – a complex nutty, caramelly, creamy, slightly fruity blend. I’m not tasting the red pepper in it anymore either (which is a good thing). It resteeps fairly well also. I always prepare this with almond milk and stevia.
I have two of these and just got one for my mom. Needless to say, I love them. Apparently they have just changed over to a non-removable metal strainer rather than the removable plastic one. I prefer the new style with the metal strainer. It’s no longer microwaveable, but no more problems with the strainer coming loose or floating up.
I was very pleasantly surprised by this tea. I normally don’t like Earl Greys (partially because they smell like the natural soaps I use). So with the addition of lavender, this tea smelled even more like soap to me. But, this is actually a nice mild Earl Grey. The bergamot is not overdone and the lavender just kind of smooths everything out. This is probably the only Earl Grey that I might actually consider buying (got this one from Mel, thanks again!). Prepared with stevia.
This is a very interesting tea. It’s a sweet dessert tea, but the flavor is grounded by something in it that is almost savory tasting. There are hints of coffee, cream, caramel and toffee. The mouthfeel is creamy and there is a prominent cheesecake aftertaste. I just wish the chamomile hadn’t been included in the mix, as I think it probably brings down the flavor of the tea a bit. A very nice, unique tea. Prepared with stevia.
