56 Tasting Notes
It reminds me a lot of Chocolate Macaroon, only minus the coconut. It’s very rich and fudgey but a bit boring. It would be good if you’re looking for a solely chocolate tea. I tried the Chocolate Cake infused bunny as well and it was sooo delicious. The tea really does come through and the chocolate was super creamy. The only bummer was the tiny HARD chunks (I’m guessing it was carob) that kind of interrupted the smoothness of the chocolate. I have tea rewards to redeem in July and if there’s still bunnies left I would definitely get more.
Lots of jasmine and apple in my first cup. I didn’t get much crème brulée flavour aside from sweetness. I added milk to the rest which made it nice and creamy, but still wasn’t giving me the eggy, custardy flavour I was hoping for. The brewing instructions on the bag were – Hot water (I used near-boiling), 3-5 minute steep (I did more like an 8 minute steep for a large 20oz mug).
Second steep is good too! I lowered the water temperature a bit and I think that helped. The green tea is more noticeable now but I do get a more creamy mouthfeel without milk and a hint of burnt sugar. I’ll have to try cooler water for the next try.
Iced tea! I used two sample packets in 1 liter of water and it came out too weak. It was sour and that was about all the flavour I got from it. It didn’t taste bad though, which is encouraging me to buy some more because I LOVE watermelon. During the summer I buy 2-4 watermelons a week and could probably eat 1 a day if I allowed myself to. I think with a stronger brew this could work with vodka… calorie free bevies?? I’ll wait to rate in case I do try it again with more leaf.
Iced tea made with 2 PS steeped in a 1 liter mason jar, cooled to room temperature, and refrigerated overnight with the teabag. Tart blueberry/apple with a cakey scent. I liked it but found it a tiny bit too tart. The muffin came through well in the smell more than the taste, but I did find it tasting very smooth and buttery. Again, I liked it and would buy more if it were on sale.
Iced tea made with 2 sample packs (I would guess just under 2 PS) steeped in a 1 liter mason jar, cooled to room temperature, then refrigerated overnight with the teabag. The colour was a light peachy pink and very summery! It did taste like fruit, mainly raspberry and orange, but it was kind of muddled. I really liked it though! I thought it was perfectly sweet (nothing added), cool, and refreshing.
Another iced tea! Made with 2 PS in a 1 liter mason jar, cooled to room temperature, then refrigerated overnight with the teabag. The flavour was very true to its name and I enjoyed it a lot. The colour was pretty as well. I used a teabag (for easy clean up) but there were still solid oil floaties in the tea that I think most people would want to strain out. There wasn’t a ton of oil and it didn’t bother me or detract from the taste, but that might be an issue for others.
2 PS steeped in a 1 liter mason jar, cooled to room temperature, then refrigerated over night with the teabag. It came out much better than my first attempts! Didn’t get any of the “parfait” flavours. It tasted like tart watered down red Koolaid to me. It was good and I would get more if it were on sale.
Great for bed time. Mint is the dominating flavour with a a touch of floral/earthiness. I’m guessing the floral/earthy flavour comes from the chamomile since I can’t say I’ve ever had a straight chamomile tea before. It does live up to its name though! Very calming, relaxing tea. Not something I reach for often but I always have a box in the cupboard.
