1758 Tasting Notes
I love pumpkin!! yum!
Thanks to Will Work for Tea for the sample!!!
I needed a pick me up at work… and this is what I went for. I’ve been craving sweet teas at odd times, like in the morning haha.
Anyhow, the tea itself was a bit too spicy for me. I was not expecting that in a creme brule tea. Oh well, that’s a pretty minor complaint considering how delicious I found my cup to be! with milk and sugar, oh yes it’s very tasty! I can taste some pumpkin, but the cinnamon dominates the first two steeps. The third steep has more of a caramel tone to it, not so much “creme”. In fact, it reminded me in some ways of a pu-erh!
Now I’m wondering how it’d fare as a latte. drools
Thanks for the sample Will Work for Tea!!
I’m not sure about this one. It was ok for a fruity green tea. From other reviews I gather that it’s a love it or hate it deal. I don’t hate it but the fruity part was a little too indistinct to suss out any details so I’m not quite sure how to describe it.
The third steep was best though, when more of the “green” tea features came out. (like spring mix salad!)
Anyhow, I’m glad to have tried it!! maybe another try will illuminate some hidden secrets :)
ahh! thank you so much Will Work for Tea!! your sample of this is SO generous.
It’s a very light, happy white tea with a vibrant berry accent. I quite enjoyed it. Odd though, the third steep was my fave… when the berry took on a hint of tartness. I love tart non-hibby whites :)
Next time, I’ll add a dash of sweetener.
Hum, I am impressed! for the first time in ages, I am truly marveling at a David’s creation.
With just an added drop or two of agave (as opposed to my usual three haha) it really tasted like preserves!!! nummy. Perhaps it’s the organic factor that makes it so tasty.
A little fake for my liking, and I would have loooooved to see this in a strawberry version instead. Then again, I’ve always found blueberry dessert things to taste fake. (Especially yogurt, for some reason)
I ordered this under false pretenses, as the website said nothing about the eeeeevil berg under ingredients. I don’t like it!
Ah well, I emailed the company and they’re refunding the money I paid for it since I can’t drink earl greys. And yup, I’d have checked Steepster for reviews first but for some reason this wasn’t coming up and now it is! odd.
Also, while my response from Red Leaf is adequate and more than enough to pacify me I was a little disappointed that they didn’t do more to retain my business. Now I’m glad I waited til trying all the teas I bought from them before submitting a full length tea shop review.
The moral of this story? bergamot is eeeeevil!! heh. I just like saying that so I’m gonna do it again. makes me feel like Count tea-cula or sumthin… so… eeeeeeeeeeevil!!!!
(sorry folks, running on little to no sleep. that is the byproduct!)
hum! this is just like my Bengal Spice! interesting. Only a bit more creamy, from the vanilla I suppose. Thanks so much for the sample Will Work For Tea!
However… I agree with the other reviews. Where the heck is the hazelnut?! shrugs
On it’s own, this was a little too spicy for me. Too much cardamom I think. With some milk and agave, it was better. Still spicy but better.
Anyhow, I’m off to bed early. Night y’all!
Thank you Azzrian for the sample!! (this was from you wasn’t it? lol)
Now, the tea… I see what everyone means about it being light and airy. Like a cloud! and there is a woody sort of note in there to. Grass, and wood. Oh and some very mild sweetness, barely there unless I concentrate.
Myself, I prefer the more floral (non jasmine) white teas, but this was pleasant for a change. Thanks again for the sample Azzrian!
This is the tea we blended at our tea guild meeting a few weeks back. We added rose oil and rose petals to black tea (I’m not sure what leaf type but I am guessing Ceylon) It was a fun experience, but not something I’m particularly interested in. Me… I enjoy drinking tea, discovering tea, and learning all about it.
Anyhow, this didn’t turn out as I expected. It’s rather light, and refreshing. Not as rosy as I’d hoped. After adding some agave, some serious citrus notes emerged. It made me wonder if there was any Darjeeling mixed in. (I arrived late, so it is possible!)
Overall, it’s very pleasant and easy to drink. I might make the rest of it iced, as I think that would go over very well. Darjeeling tea seems to be the only caffeinated beverage I enjoy cold so hopefully this one will pick up on those similarities :)
