My computer is being terrible so i need to write another note on this soon but this is one of the teas in my package of teas to review for the Toronto Tea festival. Want. Moar. Seriously, this was delicious enough for me to want to order some for myself beyond the sample that i have. Will write more when i have it again!
I pulled this from the box since it has just enough leaf for a latte and today, as it poured outside, a warm gingery latte sounded just right. This was alright. Regular black tea with some ginger flavor. It did what it needed to so no complaints but it’s nothing to write home about either. Still I enjoyed trying it tonight so thank you to the kind soul who shared it (I would investigate who is was if I was on my laptop).
As far as I can tell, this doesn’t have strawberries in it, but it’s called Strawberry Lane and it actually tastes like strawberry. Or rather, things that are said to be strawberry, like strawberry candy and strawberry soda. It doesn’t have an artificial vibe though, it’s just a strange mix of fruits that somehow combine to impersonate a completely different fruit. The other main note is coconut. It reminds me a lot of David’s Strawberry Colada, but this is the better version, because Capital Teas wisely leaves out the hibiscus. It is slightly on the weak side — I’ll probably try using 2 tsps next time — but overall a nice cup.
Sample from Evolvingness
I have to say that this is a pretty tasty black tea. I’m not quite sure i’m getting exactly mango…there are a few notes in this that remind me of peach teas, but it’s NOT peach. What it is though, is a lovely light, refreshing black tea. I think a little sweetner in this would really make the flavour pop. I’d also be interested in seeing how this brews cold. Nice cup for this late morning. :) thanks evol!
I have three flavoured teas from this company and I love them all. This is the second of the three that I had today. The day called for such mango deliciousness with a gentle but brisk kick of caffeine.
Addendum—Make that four and that fourth I don’t love, or maybe I just don’t love it yet. I haven’t come across it for a while and when I do, if I still don’t love it, it’ll probably be relegated to being a sick tea.
I cannot believe that I haven’t yet written notes about this tea. It is one of my standbys—most especially when I want a good cup of tea for either home or to go and I don’t want to have to make a decision. Grabbing this one is always a win. The flavour is very juicy mango with just enough support for the black tea to come through in each sip. Let me say that again—-very juicy sweet and lovely mango. I always steep briefly, ie. two minutes or so, for best effect. And another plus, it travels nicely throughout the day in either my travel mug or thermos.
I am fairly new to Darjeeling teas, but find myself craving the muscatel with gentle nuances of caramel and raisin on days such as today. It’s a bit cool and damp out there thankfully after the killer humid blasts we had earlier in the week. I haven’t been particularly well the past few weeks, so a quiet day with tea and contemplation is just what is needed.
Flavors: Caramel, Muscatel, Raisins
I had packed this one up in a travel mug for another long long day out in the world. To me, and this is my first cup mind, it tastes of subtle smoke with hints of dark cherry, as if the idea were to imitate the Eastern European approach to drinking strong black tea: with a spoon or two of thick cherry preserve alongside your tiny glass of tea to alternate between the intense sweetness of one and the intense savoury punch of the other. The base is lighter than I had expected though perhaps this is to do with my brief steeping.
When I got home and checked the tea description, I was surprised to discover that bergamot flavours this tea. Well, hey, first impressions and all. I’ll need to give a proper review during my next proper sipping.
Flavors: Cherry, Cherry Wood, Smoke
