Recent Tasting Notes
Make an iced preparation. I like they peachy flavor but there’s some sort of aftertaste that lingers. There isn’t any artificial sweetener in it which I would normally blame for that taste. Not sure of the source. Maybe I brewed the tea too strong? Followed the recommendation to brew a single serve packet of this tea.
the ingredients on my container and on the site are listed as Organic: Black tea, marigolds. With cornflowers and natural flavouring. THERE IS NO BERGAMOT in this. So IDK why they call it an earl grey since the whole concept of earl grey is black tea with bergamot. It tastes like melted ice cream with a weird pepto bismol aftertaste. I couldn’t even finish the cup it was that bad. Simply gross.
I’m surprised I haven’t reviewed this tea before, given how good it tastes!
I finally got my tea cupboard moved over to our new apartment after being almost an entire year without it!! So when I was thirsty on this warm spring evening, I went for my tea! So exciting!
I’ve got another white tea brewing for iced tea, and since I still had enough water in my kettle for a cup, why wait?
I’m here because the first sip was so good! I needed to let y’all know. It’s sweet by itself, though I added sweetener to it. (I’ve been so long without tea, I’ll have to retrain my taste buds.) There’s that lovely jasmine vanilla flavor, with lingering rose and apple… this is just the first steep.
The second steep continued the strong flavor of creamy jasmine and rose.
By the third steep, the added flavor had washed out so I could more enjoy the green tea and oolong’s own flavor—smooth, not too vegetal. It’d be a great blend without the added flavor, so it’s even more yummy with it! :)
Flavors: Apple, Creamy, Jasmine, Rose, Vanilla
At first glance, this genmaicha appears to have a much higher proportion of toasted rice than most of those I’ve tried before. As a proportion, I’d say it’s at least 60:40, maybe heading towards 70:30. That seems unusual to me, unless I just got a batch that wasn’t very evenly distributed. I’m not complaining, though – since I’m not a huge green tea fan, this could actually be a good thing!
The flavour, as you might expect given what I’ve just said, is mostly toasted rice. It’s pretty much exactly like sugar puffs, which is an epithet I’ve heard applied to genmaicha regularly, but one which I’ve never really agreed with or experienced myself. It’s perfectly true and accurate in this case, right down to the lingering sugary sweetness in the aftertaste. The green tea base is just about there in the background, adding a touch of grassy smoothness. Mostly, though, it’s fairly innocuous.
I’m glad I tried this one, since it’s a little different to other genmaicha blends I’ve tried even though it’s just plain and unflavoured. It’s one of those rare ones that I could happily drink pretty regularly, just for the simple joy of it.
I’m liking this tea. I don’t know that it really delivers on the promise of chai, but it has a convincing pumpkin flavor along with the accompanying spices. I’m getting more cinnamon out of it this time, but I drank it too fast to analyze it more. The resteep is a little week.
I got this tea as a sample with an order from David’s Tea online, and I fell in love with it. I honestly didn’t think I would enjoy it when I first took a whiff, but it’s become one of weekly teas. I like to let it steep for a while to get a strong brew.
Flavors: Caramel, Pumpkin
Trying to sip down some teas I need to part with. This one is ok- though chai teas are not my particular favorite. I think I may need to try this one as a latte to give it a fair review. I think my taste buds could still be off from having the flu so I am saving my better straight teas for when I’m feeling back to normal. I made this in my DT tea press and it kept me warm on the way to work…only 9 degrees this am. February & March are such dreary months in my neck of the woods. Hope you all have a great day.
