311 Tasting Notes
Sipdown. I kinda wish they would bring back this tea – it’s really good. I like the cranberry and star anise notes! Overall it’s kinda fruity and ‘festive’ from the spices.. Good for this time of year for sure. I’ll be sad when its gone.
Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Cranberry, Fruity
This. May just be my new favourite. Such a warming cinnamon and orange flavour. I also love the fact that this is an oolong. Meaning I can definitely resteep it a second time! :)
I love the orange and spice notes! I will definitely grab a full tin of this one!
Flavors: Cinnamon, Orange, Orange Zest, Spices
So, today was a good day for tea. My friend gave me a big bag full of teas she didn’t have space for anymore. This was one of them! I hadn’t tried this one yet, and it smelled really good. Tasting it now, it is good! Lovely cinnamon and other spices right up there to make a wonderful chai! I do see why others have compared it to cinnamon hearts. Kind of like Hot Lips tea, but not a green tea. Which is really great actually! I don’t really taste the coconut much, but I think all the ingredients blend together well. I did add some sugar, which I believe brings out the flavours even more so. I really love this one!
Flavors: Black Pepper, Cinnamon, Ginger, Spices
Wow, this one smells spicy! Definitely chai. Finally got around to trying my sample of this tea today, and I’m having it as a hot latte, with cinnamon on top – and my, is it delicious. Such a warming treat on a cold snowy night like tonight. I steeped it for 3.5 mins and added some sugar, and its really good. I can’t really pick out each individual spice, but overall its a great blend, making a perfect chai latte. I definitely need to buy some on my next online order!
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Ginger, Spices
This tea didn’t smell like much upon smelling it, but I bought 15g to try at home. Since I have a cold, I thought it was a good idea. The tea guide also said it is better than Throat Rescue, which I don’t really care for. I added a bit of sugar, and had it hot, steeped for about 2 mins or less. It’s actually really good. I taste the apple and ginger, orange and also the honeybush. Maybe a hint of peppermint, but it’s not really noticeable. Overall I really enjoy this tea, and I managed to get 2 steeps out of one PS. I will definitely buy more of this! I hope it is part of the core collection.
Flavors: Apple, Ginger, Honey, Orange
I wasn’t really too sure on this tea – but I got some to try. It smells alright – kinda reminds me of the old tea Kanpe. I made this iced. It steeps a dark red colour and I can taste the hibiscus right away. But this tea is pretty good, actually. I taste the tropical notes of mango/pineapple with a subtle hint of banana.. I added some sugar to this to make the flavour pop out more. It’s pretty good, and quite unique. I’d maybe get 50g of this !
Flavors: banana, Mango, Pineapple, Tropical
I finally got the chance to try a cup of this to go – also purchased 50g. Definitely not sweetened, haha. But I wanted it plain so I could get the full taste effect. I taste the orange flavours, not so much the strawberry. This really reminds me of the pu’erh tea ‘Juicy Orange’, which I wasn’t a fan of for it’s weird aftertaste – but this is drinkable. I was drawn to it because it’s the first red-ish matcha I’ve tried, and I could smell the orange citrus notes in it. I think what would make this better would be adding lemonade like they suggested, or adding the matcha to a smoothie. :) I will definitely make use of what I got. Interesting tea.
Flavors: Citrus, Orange
