300 Tasting Notes
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.
This one sounds so good, but now that I’ve tasted it, I kind of wish it wasn’t decaf. I don’t know if it actually makes a difference in taste, but I think it does. I do taste the chocolate and hazelnut, but there’s also a fake element to it… Not sure what that is. Not a bad tea, but it kinda tastes washed out.
Flavors: Cardboard, Chocolate, Hazelnut
I mainly got this because it said it was good for colds, and somehow I managed to get a cold. It smells soooo good. The orange with the spices is just heavenly. I do steep it a bit longer to bring out the flavour, and its really good! I just LOVE the orange taste with that kick from the peppercorns, cinnamon and anise. So warming.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Orange, Spices
Well, I’ve waited long enough to finally try this one. Luckily my store got more of it so I bought about 30g. This one has a scent that does remind me of ice cream – but tasting it, it tastes more like almonds and green tea. I’m not sure I taste the matcha at all in this. Adding some sugar makes it taste more like a nutty ice cream to me. Not bad, I’m glad I got to try it.
Flavors: Almond, Creamy, Nuts, Sweet
Got a warm cup of this to go! I think since it was the TOTD it had been there for a while so it wasn’t hot, but warm – which is okay. I tried the sample in store and it was pretty good. So I bought some to take home as well. I definitely taste the rhubarb in this one. Also the hibiscus. And I’m getting that ‘cream soda’ feel from it as well. Overall I think they named this one pretty accurately, and it’s a pretty good tea. Can’t wait to try it iced!
Flavors: Fruity, Hibiscus, Rhubarb
I got about 15g of this one to try since it’s kinda expensive, and I am finally getting around to trying it, haha. It smells so good, a very strong jasmine and floral scent. At first I thought this would be a green tea, but nope- it’s white! It also tastes nice! Definitely jasmine, and a floral tone. This is really nice with a bit of sugar. I like this.
Flavors: Floral, Jasmine
