115 Tasting Notes
Very smooth and wonderful fruity flavor without being overly sweet. The pineapple and strawberry flavors are just barely peeking through for a great hint of sweet goodness. Steeped for 4-5 mins, but I think I may have used too little tea so it is a little weaker than I would expect (should have used more tea or steeped a couple minutes longer). Also, as a side note that may have affected my tasting, I had a handful of rainbow nerds shortly before my cup of tea…interesting way to approach a fruity tea tasting :)
It tastes pretty much exactly how the name describes it, like almond cookies. Really distinct almond and coconut flavors. Good, not as good as other almond and/or coconut flavored teas I’ve had, but good. The tea is a little watery, but I am starting to think that most of the teas from Subtle Tea are a little on the watery side. That was a little surprising for me, especially since I steeped it for 7+ minutes. Nevertheless, still enjoyable.
Really nice and flavorful black tea. Not heavy at all but smooth and crazy flavor. The combo of coconut, cocoa nibs and vanilla work together expertly. Also I quite successfully complimented the tea with a chocolate chip and walnut scone and some intriguing discussion…perfection. Great experience overall.
