1626 Tasting Notes
WOW!! This is fantastic! I had this after dinner, and the coconut scent is everywhere. I LOVE coconut! I love pina colada! I also sense the pineapple flavor in this as well. I love the shape of honeybush with all the little wood-like shavings, large white coconut flakes, and chunks of pineapple. This is a great blend! I will def be making a purchase in the future! WOO!! :)
I had this during work yesterday. The brew is a light brown almost honey colored liquor. It smells faintly of apples, but this is what I expect from an apple tea! DELICIOUS! Crispy tasting as well. I love apples. It is naturally sweet as well. Good tea overall! I don’t think I’d buy it, but its a great and fairly accurate apple flavor!
I opened this up for lunch today. I love the nutty but fresh smell coming from the bag. There were super small almost kirara rice like seeds. They are round and remind me of tiny chickpeas. These were mixed in with bright green stems, which resemble kukicha. MAN, I really miss kukicha! I need to make an order for that as soon as I’ve finished a few more teas. mMMm… This one was nice and light. It is different. I like the nutty and toasty flavor and it is light as well. Delicious! This isn’t bitter at all.
I saw the description of this and was a bit scared. Astringency? Anyway, I took a sip of this and this DEFINITELY needed milk and sugar. It was too astringent for me, but I loved it with the additives. It was delicious. Nutty and bitter but the bitterness was gone when I added milk. This tea was also aromatic with a slight fruitiness to it.
I won a sample of this from iheartteas – Rachana. I was happy to have another sample of it and wanted to start with a tea I knew about already. I added agave syrup to this, and it was delicious! I like adding syrup to this more than adding sugar because agave has this unexplainable, delicious flavor to it.
I received this as a sample and I am so happy about that! This is a very colorful tea, full of green cardamom, red and black peppercorn, and more. It is very fragrant as well. I love it!
The base is a black tea, but it isn’t very strong or astringent or bitter. It is perfect. This tea didn’t need any additives, which I am glad for. The smell is delicious! So many notes playing in here. There is an herbal aspect to it. I love cardamom! I cook with it all the time. The taste is also delicious. All the spices are blended perfectly. There wasn’t one note that particularly stood out. Toward the end of my cup, it became a little astringent, leaving my mouth feeling a little dry. Next time I try this tea, I will add a little sugar to see if some flavors stand out.
