Recent Tasting Notes
This is one of my favorite rooibos blends, and I’m so afraid that Republic of Tea will retire it after this year.
The scent is definitely stronger than the taste, but the taste isn’t weak to me (could be because I let it steep for 10 minutes, too). It’s more chocolatey than orange, but the aftertaste is just like one of those chocolate oranges you get around Christmastime. Love it!
Ah, now that’s more like it. Brewed at 212 rather than 195 (and just how do you get the degree symbol to show up?).
It’s both floral and fruity. The peach is obvious, but not overpowering. No bitterness when brewed at this temperature. It’s a smooth, pleasing cup that is delicious hot, but I suspect would be even better iced on a hot summer day (though I hope those are far behind us now).
Tried this out with the “oolong” setting on my One-Touch. Normally I just brew this like a black tea (the package, after all, says to pour boiling water over the bags).
It’s barely peachy at all at this temperature, and the tea itself has a strange bitterness to it that I hadn’t noticed before. Going to make another small pot (2 cups) with boiling water to see how they compare.
This is a lovely wintertime blend. The fruits and spices almost beg to be sipped whilst sitting in front of a roaring fire. It’s very reminiscent of the spiced tea that my granny used to mix (which was made with instant tea, but we won’t hold it against her). There’s definitely some citrus notes to this, and you can taste the cloves. The black tea used as the base is strong enough to match the fruit/spice flavors without being lost or turning bitter.
I’m nearly out of this tea; perhaps have 1-2 pots worth left. I can definitely see myself getting another tin of this in the future.
I’m still sick with this stupid cold! I am well over two weeks into this thing now. I have Nuvola teas to review, but I’m afraid I won’t be able to taste them well enough, so they’ll have to wait. Ugh.
I snagged this from work because I thought the ginger in it would help. While I can taste it, I don’t think there’s enough in it to really do anything medicinally. Also, I don’t remember it being this boring. Something about it tastes sort of artificial to me now. Like Peach Nehi. Lowering my rating a bit.
Of the three Republic Of Tea flavors I’ve tried in the past few days, this has been the best. The peach taste is not overwhelming, and it balances well with the black tea. The ginger is a little more subtle than I was hoping for, but it’s there, and it’s nice. It gives the tea a more satisfying finish and makes my mouth tingle a little.
Ginger is something sort of new to me in teas, so I’m still getting used to it, but in this case I like it. It reminds me of ginger ale. Like maybe some delicious ginger ale/tea/peach cocktail. I’d love to try this iced.
Purple liquid + HUGE green water bottle = grey-black beverage! I cold brewed this tea since I didn’t have time to heat some water this morning. It was… umm… interesting. I can’t say I want to buy this tea. It kept me hydrated all day! I think it might taste good hot. I’m not sure since I’m not a fan of hot fruity teas.
This is really good. The plantain tastes a lot like banana – but not quite… it has a starchier flavor – this is very true to a plantain taste… or at least, true to what I remember a plantain tastes like, it’s been a while! And the coconut is delightful in this blend … a very nice balance of the tropical flavors. The green rooibos is not strongly distinguishable, but I can taste it’s fresh, somewhat fruity, somewhat woodsy, sweet note that it imparts.
This is really good. It would be awesome iced too.
This is actually pretty good for a bagged tea. Much stronger than I expected. Next time I’ll definitely steep for less time, though. Maybe four minutes is all that’s needed. This is the usual hot tea we serve where I work.
Anyway, it’s your standard black tea, ordinary, and surprisingly high in caffeine. If I was looking for a wake-up rush and was out of coffee, two bags of this would do the trick. Also, I think a lemon slice and some honey would make this glorious. I’d be happy to try the loose leaf version if the opportunity arises.
