305 Tasting Notes
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
I got 50g of this for at home, since it tasted pretty good in store. Surprising, because I’m not a huge fan of cardamom or black pepper… I mostly taste the mango, pineapple and coconut. Although I do get the aftertaste of turmeric/ginger. It’s a pretty tropical taste. Also, I kinda get a hint of banana, even though there is no banana in this tea. Weird, but pretty good. (Could do with less coconut though) hahaha
Flavors: banana, Coconut, Ginger, Mango, Pineapple
I tried a sample of this hot in store today, and then used my free tea coupon for an iced cup to go. It was really nice hot, and iced. I had a bit of agave in my iced cup, and it’s just really nice. Unlike any other tea I’ve had. It has a light and floral taste to it, with hints of ginger and the berries. I think I will have to get some of this for home!
Flavors: Berry, Floral, Ginger
Finally trying this as an iced tea! I really like this one a lot – it reminds me of Cantaloupe Ice! It steeps a lighter colour, but tastes almost the same. I’m not really sure what moringa is, but I probably can’t taste it. I just think this tea is really good and refreshing for the warmer weather !
Flavors: Cantaloupe, Fruity, Honeydew, Melon, Sweet
I’m pretty sure this is the right tea on here… The photo looks the same as my flowering tea. It’s called Winter Fantasy, but I don’t see the name Tea Desire on the package, it says Asiatica Blooming Tea. Anyway, this is pretty good – my first time having blooming tea. It’s so fascinating! It’s just green tea so it just jasmine tasting. Pretty simple, but with sugar it’s good!
Flavors: Floral, Jasmine
This one has a strong scent of vanilla when first smelling the loose leaf. I steeped it for 2 minutes at 85c, and it’s almost perfect – I taste that vanilla, and I also get that hint of green tea base. Maybe next time I’ll steep for 1.5 min. This tea is pretty good – I was not sure whether I’d like it since others said it reminded them of butter sencha or vallilla orchid (neither of which I like) But this is actually pretty good for a straight/flavoured green.
