This is a nice fruity black tea. Quite flavorful. I think the peach is the most noticeable. Other than the black tea of course. I think I am getting a little bit of the cranberry as an aftertaste. I added a little sugar to bring out the fruity notes, but it’s a pretty good tea.

Flavors: Fruity, Peach

Drinking this again, I noticed the wet leaf smell is very reminiscent of these big gum balls.

Oh dear, now I cannot stop thinking of those when I drink it and the thought of gum balls penetrated the taste as well.

drank Jasmine Pearls by Distinctly Tea

Very forgiving tea with respect to brewing time. The jasmine scent is subtle, but complements the mild flavours of the tea well. In later steeps, when the jasmine scent is mostly gone, the tea develops a noticeable apricot aroma and flavour, which is slightly sour.

Flavors: Apricot, Jasmine

A really nice Jin Jun Mei from Wu Yi, definitely should be brewed gong fu style in order to extract its full potential.

A decent jasmine tea. It has a nice smell, which can be a bit overbearing though. Generally I found it a bit hard to find the right brewing method for this tea. It often turned out either too mellow or too bitter.

Very light oolong, but I don’t particularly enjoy its taste, which is somewhat sour and flat. Later infusions are more mineral. It has a nice fruity smell, mostly apricots.

Second time having this tea and I have to say I really enjoy this one! I’m a big fan of banana in teas, and this has a great banana taste with a hint of coconut. I will definitely be buying more of this one! Yum.

Still a novice tea drinker, so take this review for what it is worth. Opening the package produces some lovely bright green leaves that have subtle floral scent. I wanted to infuse this one Gaiwan style, but opted for a small cast iron teapot and a little over 5 grams of tea. Infused with boiling water for about 4.5 minutes, this tea produced a beautiful yellow liquor that had bright orchid aroma. Definitely not your usual floral scent of Jasmin or Rose, but something very complex like an orchid garden. Taste was smooth and creamy with a mild astringency but no lingering bitterness. Sweet flavour left in the mouth after drinking.
I will be infusing this blend a number of time and will attempt to update my review with repeated infusions.
2nd infusion – slightly weaker but virtually identical experience to the first infusion. This is gonna hold up well for many infusions!

Wonderful! a unique tea, with a nice bit of acidity and sweetness that reminds me of honey. This was perfect not only becasue it was delicious, but it soothed a sore throat that I have had. It was so good I had to add the tea to Steepster just to rate it :)

Was a tasty treat, but I think I might have to add a little extra tea, or lengthen ther steep time! A very nice fruity sweet aftertaste on this one.

Pretty good, a nice subtle fruitiness, that reminded me of a monks blend tea, only lighter, since its green, and with a bit of nice sweetness.

drank Blood Orange by Distinctly Tea
36 tasting notes

Probably one of the nicest smelling teas i have ever had. Though smelling mostly of oranges, the taste is slightly sweet, and the other flavours come out to play. Could do without the apple in place for more orange, but overall this tea is delicious, and probably will aspire to be one of my favorites.

Flavors: Orange

Big bold raspberry flavour, very tart and oh so tasty. I oversteeped my first cup and the rose overpowered the whole cup. The second however was delightfully fruity. What can I say other than it tastes just like raspberries?

It’s ok. The coconut and almond flavour is pleasant enough, but I’m not in love with the black tea base. It’s not bad, just a bit dull.

This tea was a bit of a let down after trying some other, more flavourful, teas from the same company. All I could really taste was strawberry, I couldn’t detect the kiwi, not even the hibiscus. Next time I think i will need to up the amount of tea, cut in some more hibiscus, or just use this to add flavour to white tea.

Flavors: Strawberry

drank Lapacho Mango by Distinctly Tea
59 tasting notes

I have never tasted Lapacho before today. It has a bark/woody flavour that on it’s own may not appeal to me, but paired with mango is rather pleasant. If you like mango, I imagine that you would be well pleased with this tea. The only downside it that there is a lot of debris so fine that it goes right through my strainer.

Flavors: Bark, Mango, Wood

My husband and brother-in-law agree, this tastes like Ponche Navideño, the traditional Christmas punch made in Mexico. They couldn’t get over howclose it tastes to their grandmother’s recipe.

It comes out a pretty pink color. The most distinct flavours are the apple and cinnamon, but i can also pick up the papaya and coconut. it tastes nothing like what I would expect a gingerbread house to taste like, but that doesn’t stop it from being delicious.
