So I ended making my only sample of this tea bag for someone else but tried it. I assumed I wouldn’t like it but ended quite liking it which was unfortunate since it still went to my friend. I got this tea bag from a family member who received it on a European cruise.
Dry bag: smells fruity like marionberries
taste: fruity with a hint of rose flavor, after all it does come from a rose. Slightly tart but easily fixed with some honey.
The color brews up this beautiful color that reminds me of hibiscus or beets. Would make a lovely lip stain!
Flavors: Berries, Fruity, Rosehips
This was kindly given to me by a dear friend who said it just wasn’t her thing. Good call to give it to me, since I’m famous for loving flavored black teas. I really like a good coconut scented black. It smelled a bit perfumey, almost soapy, which was strange, but I needed to actually brew it. “Brew it, then review it” should be my mantra (sorry, a bit champagne tipsy right now, this IS Valentine’s Day, after all!). Anyway, tried it hot, and the flavor was pleasant, but that soapiness was readily apparent and spoiled it. I decided that sometimes making it iced can dampen some unpleasant off flavors, so I tried it that way as well. No luck. Still soapy. So this is a thumbs down, unfortunately. With so many coconut and coconut/vanilla teas out there that are delicious, I wasn’t going to waste any more of my time with this one. Out it goes…
Flavors: Coconut, Perfume, Soap
this came to me from the lovely courtney as I asked her for a few of the ronnefeldt teas she had so i could try them as a company. This is not your malty sort of assam. Instead it’s more of a fruitier (but not a la taiwanese tea sort of fruity) cup of tea. There’s a boldness here that i can get behind, that is nice this morning. Thanks for sharing this one with me courtney!
Received this one in my swap with Courtney. I love assam. I am sure I have said in many of my reviews that CTC assam is one of my all time favourite teas.
This one is not a CTC version, but the leaves are quite small. There is not much smell to the tea dry. Brewed there is a very, very light assam smell. Slightly sweet.
The brewed tea is OK. I had quite high hopes for this one. I am not getting any malt, which is the most disappointing part. It is only moderately bold. There is a mild sweet honey flavour. I am not getting much spice either that is described in the description of this tea. To me, this one is almost bordering on a Ceylon. I am also getting a light metallic tang in the aftertaste, which I have had with some assams before.
The tea itself it good, I just prefer a much bolder and maltier assam. I think it may have been better with a larger quantity of tea, I used 1 tsp which is what I normally use.
Chinese Sencha and fine fruity aromas and flowers
Citrus Mango Flavour
Ingredients: sunflower, cornflower, rose petals.
It is better than other Green Tea since I drink those.
First, You can drink with hot water.
Second, drip cold water in the teapot and enjoy it.
Overall, this is an okay herbal tea.
I generally don’t like Chai teas unless I’m making Milk tea, and I did not think this tea would taste good with Milk. This is not spicy so its okay.
I also don’t like liquorice but the blend of other herbs balances out the flavor; the ginger adds a bit of spice to offset the sweet liquorice.
For me, this will be an acquired taste but it isn’t a bad tea.
This is my favorite tea so I gave it a 100~ haven’t had a better tea so far.
It has a smooth, and slightly creamy flavor. The Orange and Vanilla blend well to make a refreshing tea without the caffeine. This is the tea that got me interested in Rooibos as a caffeine free alternative to Black Tea.
A very light tisane, which may have something to do with the large size of my mug. But it’s good to have a light chamomile tea because sometimes the herbal taste of chamomile can be really intense (to the extent that it’s bitter) and off-putting. This Ronnefeldt’s version is slightly sweet and therefore more drinkable.
