12 Tasting Notes
A previous review says this tea tastes like cinnamon valentine hearts, and that’s what I’m thinking of as I drink it. The cinnamon is sweet with a bit of a burn in the back of my throat, and also a tiny bit of chalkiness going down. I really enjoy it as sweet teas are my thing.
It doesn’t have a lot of caffeine either so I can have a second cup of this one in the morning.
smell: sweet cinnamon, bit of orange
sip: a smooth gentle sweetness on my tongue
swallow: sweet with a bit of heat going down
aftertaste: VERY faint spice burn
I’ve been drinking this tea more frequently. In my previous review, I said it could be sweeter, but actually I find myself enjoying it as is. The pear taste is not overwhelming. It’s very smooth. I imagine this is what a ghost-pear might taste like. I get the scent and taste of pear and then it disappears off my tongue. There is a very faint bitter aftertaste that motivates me to take the next sip. This has risen to become one of my favorites.
A previous reviewer described this tea as “pre-sweetened” and like a “dessert tea,” and the description on the site says it includes stevia leaves for sweetening.
That is exactly what I wanted as I am on a quest to find another sugarless tea that is very sweet to help me keep drinking tea instead of sugary lattes. But I do not taste one iota of sweetness in this tea. It smells like coffee creamer with fruit. It’s pretty bitter, maybe because I was really expecting this one to be sweet and am disappointed? I dislike the aftertaste. This is not a tea I’ll want to sip again soon.
From the description on the site: “A cup of this tea will take you back to the amusement park! It tastes and smells just like a traditional caramel apple.”
I just- don’t get that? Maybe because I was expecting this tea to be sweeter, but I don’t feel any nostalgia or feel like this is reminiscent of a caramel apple.
This tea is not for me.
