drank Lychee Coconut by Tea Forte

I’m not sure what lychee tastes like, but this tea really tasted strongly of coconut with a mild, sweet flavor that reminded me more of chocolate than anything. It was really a nice tea!

drank Earl Grey by Tea Forte

I am a major Earl Grey fan, and this one didn’t disappoint. It had a nice, deep flavor, with proportionate notes. I steeped a second time and it still performed really well.

drank Blueberry Merlot by Tea Forte
59 tasting notes

I was a little confused when I first tried this— I didn’t see the ingredients, so I could taste the blueberry a little and the merlot a little, but there was this flowery thing that was pretty strong! I finally figured it out— hibiscus. I could still taste both the blueberry and the wine flavors, but there was definitely quite a bit of hibiscus. I like hibiscus, but I find it doesn’t have much… body? It seems to need some other flavor to give it structure, and I’m not sure the blueberry/merlot tastes did that as well as I’d like. The water got really, really dark very fast (it was a really beautiful deep burgundy), so I didn’t steep for very long, in case it was too much. I’ll try a second steep and see if the flavors change at all.

drank Caramel Nougat by Tea Forte
59 tasting notes

This tea was super sweet! The flavor is accurate— it definitely tastes like caramel nougat, with a little bit of an alcohol taste. I’m not much for sweets, but I tried this one as a replacement for a much-desired dessert, and it hit the spot. I’d drink it again, but only if I was again in need of something very sweet!

drank Vanilla Pear by Tea Forte
59 tasting notes

This tea wasn’t earth-shattering, but it was nice. When opening the package, I was overwhelmed by a sort of fake pear smell, but it mellowed and smelled/tasted less fake after steeping. The vanilla wasn’t very strong, and really, the pear wasn’t, either. It was an okay drink, but not one I’d seek out.

drank Lemon Sorbetti by Tea Forte

This tea is fine. It’s a little lemony, a little grassy. None of the flavors are very strong— they’re not bad, but they’re also not that exceptional.

drank Orange Jasmine by Tea Forte

I’m not a huge fan of jasmine by itself, but it can be nice when paired with other flavors. I thought the orange would be a nice complement; when I opened the packaging, the orange scent came through nicely, but after steeping both the smell and flavor of the orange were almost completely gone. The jasmine was very strong (too strong, in my opinion). I tried a second, slightly longer steep to see if there was any difference, but there wasn’t any noticeable change in the ratio of orange to jasmine.

drank Cucumber Mint by Tea Forte

This tea smells lovely! The flavor is a little too minty— it overpowers the other flavors— but it’s still nice.

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

This reminds me of a sweet Earl Grey. The bergamot comes through the strongest; the currant and caramel were more subtle. I reused the sachet a second time and the same flavors came through with just a slightly longer steep, although the color was much lighter.
