Recent Tasting Notes
I like this one. It reminds me a lot of Teavana’s version, which I guess is to be expected. I do think DTs is better. No strong marigold taste like yesterday, and I think the hibiscus level is lighter (but I like hibiscus so you might feel differently). I am drinking it hot, so I can’t fully rate how it would be iced. Good, dependable fruity stuff!
Flavors: Hibiscus, Lemon, Strawberry
This is the second of my summer fruit infusion teas. I’m a sucker for Peach teas. I once had peach ginger tea from a teeny little shop in Minneapolis, and it was on day that I could smell and taste and it was divine. I loved that tea! But most peach teas miss the mark for me, which this one did. I kinda like it, but I don’t love it. As with most fruit infusions, this one is pale in color when brewed. The flavor was sweet and a little zingy. There was a definite aftertaste which I didn’t enjoy. I have no sense of smell right now so the flavor was simply missing for me but I suspect this one probably tastes a bit artificial. Still, I drank the whole cup and think I’ll drink the rest of the 25 grams. Maybe I’llo like it better iced.
I did not discover this tea on time when it first came out and missed out on it. I have been wanting to try it for years since. The wait is finally over and I must say that it makes a really tasty hot tea latte (tastes like a cookie too!) Perfect paired with some gluten free chocolate chip cookies.
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.
