338 Tasting Notes
Contrary to the other reviews… I actually like this one, haha. I didn’t really get any of the burnt taste – maybe the amount of milk I had in it cancelled it out? Not my favourite dessert tea around, but I think I would get this one again. I definitely liked the black tea base in this as opposed to the rooibos (though the DT version of this is also pretty good).
Another bold choice! Definitely don’t over steep this one, haha. I enjoyed this cup, but I don’t think this is a tea I’d get again. There was just something… off, maybe, about the taste? Something added that I didn’t 100 like? Whatever it is, there will be other black blends that I will go to before having this one again, though I’m not sorry I tried this one.
Hmm. This is a weird one. It’s a decent cup of black tea, but the vanilla wasn’t what I was expecting – I’ve had plenty of vanilla-flavoured teas over the years, so I know what to look for. Maybe it needed something else to bring the taste to the forefront? I added milk, and that didn’t really help, either. I still have some more of this one, so I’ll maybe make it another way and see if my rating changes any.
Rooibos and me have a very complicated relationship, LOL. I picked this sample because of the raspberry, and I like vanilla too, so I thought this should work! I definitely taste raspberry (along with the sometimes-questionable rooibos base, haha, I think I may have steeped it too long), but not really on the vanilla. Boo, as I was looking forward to that. All in all, not a bad tea, but watch the steeping time and don’t expect any vanilla. Pity that’s in the name!
Oh wow, I could drink an entire bucket of this one, I think! Delicious! Love the spices, love the smell, etc etc. I don’t think I steeped it for long enough, as the taste was a little milder than what I was expecting, but overall, this is definitely a thumbs up. I love chais that feature cinnamon, especially when the are caffeine free so I can drink them right before bed!
I didn’t like this one as much as I thought I would – I think the addition of the lemongrass was what killed it. Which is sad, as I usually quite like lemongrass. I did like the string mint and lime flavour, though, and maybe this is what should have been concentrated on? I also didn’t add an milk to this one due to the hibiscus. This is still a good tea, but just be prepared for a bit of an unusual flavour for something with ‘Mojito’ as the name.
Sleigh Ride is one of my beloved blends from DT, and I was curious to see if this one would be anything similar to it. I was sort of correct, LOL, as there’s a lot more going on in this one than in Sleigh Ride, so the taste was a bit weird – I find tea that have a bunch of flavour profiles don’t necessarily do them all well. I did enjoy my cup, though, and I do like that it’s caffeine free!
