1754 Tasting Notes
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 :)
ummmmm yeah!! I’m packing up the house tonight, so that we can reno. So… I needed some tea! and I’ve been trying to drink down my sample stash. I think it was Jenn who gave this to me? big thank you! though I haven’t seen ya in awhile… hope yer still around :)
Anyhow, I can seriously taste upside-down pineapple cake! this is SO good. Pineapple… yup. Cake… yup yup! oh mann this is great.
Now, I’m not sure I’d repurchase this because I always seem to be in possession of one fruity tea or another and knowing me I’d never finish of the packet. There are times when nothing but a fruity green will do, ya see… like today. I had a serious hankering. So, while I am in love with this, and it is super unique, I can do without. But it’s on my “to be seriously consider” list! Frank, you are a potion master <3
Peaches! oh yes, peaches in droves. So good! Muchos thanks to Ashmanra for the sample!!
Very similar to the same tea blend from Tsaa. I’m not sure which I prefer. When I first tried it, the peach overwhelmed me. Then in later steeps(I had three), it balanced out with the tea base.
In comparing it to the Tsaa version, I think this version is less “fuzzy” and sweet but I need to try a side by side to be sure.
Sooo… which do I prefer? throws up hands I really don’t know!
Thanks again Ashmanra!
wow what a treat! thank you so much Ashmanra!
This has a great peach flavour, similar to the black peach tea from Tsaa. In fact, they are essentially the same with a different base! If you like green tea and peaches, this is the one for you :)
Personally, I prefer the black tea base but this is lovely for a change!
Ohh man what a great tea. I love the white ones with some hazzah behind them.
What a body! A very sweet, mellow cup. Reminds me of orchids, orchid marmalade maybe. The first steep was my weakest… they seemed to grow in character each time. The last one, of four, had a really sweet finish. Almost syrup like. One day, I will order more of this. Ahhh I wish this was more than a sample!
