316 Tasting Notes
Weeeellllll…. This isn’t overly too bad. Although I’m glad I only had 1 sample of it. My first sip tasted somewhat spicy… I don’t know what it is – maybe the caraway seeds, or the mustard seeds? Hmm… At least I can say I’ve tried it. When I smell it in my mug I can slightly notice the blueberry but it’s very subtle, and so is the taste. Not sure what to think of this tea. I’ll finish my cup, though.
Actually starting to get used to it.
Flavors: Blueberry, Spices
Alright so this tea smells really weird dry leaf… I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it or not. But I got a bag full from someone on the DavidsTea group I’m in. So I finally got around to trying a hot cup of this. I don’t even really know what the ingredients of this are… But I’ve got to say, it’s not bad. I’m definitely tasting the ginger. (I’m not a big fan of ginger but I can tolerate it) And I don’t know what nettle leaf tastes like but I’m thinking that might be another unknown flavour in this. All in all, I’ll finish what I have of this, but it wasn’t really anything special.
Flavors: Ginger, Lemongrass
I just recieved a small amount of this oldie to try. So I made myself a hot cup – and it’s really good. I can actually taste the lychee fruit in it, and I like the flavour. Other than that, it’s a really fruity black tea. Wish I had more of it…
Flavors: Fruity, Lychee
This is an alright tea. It has all that fall spice flavour to it, but I don’t know if it tastes like a carrot cupcake. It actually reminds me of Spiced Pumpkin, and Ginger Beer. Maybe a mix of that?? I really don’t know. But I don’t mind it. I bought 50g of it, but that’ll be all.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger, Spices
Ew. Just ew. When I smelled this tea I knew that I wouldn’t like it – too nutty for my liking. (Hence the name, I guess) I tried it hot and really it just tasted like hot peanuts… I’m not a big nut fan. I was hoping it would be more like a granola bar taste but nope. I managed to finish my cup of this but I gave the rest of my sample away because I just really don’t like this.
Flavors: Nutty, Peanut
I went in on the day this came out, and got it as my $1 iced tea. It’s actually quite lovely. It reminds me of Green Passionfruit, but with a mango kick to it. So if you like green passionfruit, I think you’ll like this tea too! (Provided you like mango) I also like that it’s a black tea as well. More flavour!
Flavors: Mango, Passion Fruit
When I first tried this tea, I had it hot, and I didn’t like it AT ALL. But since the websites samples are so limited, I ended up getting more of this. So I decided I’d try it iced this time. It was fruity, but I still didn’t really like it for some odd reason. I don’t know what it is in this tea that just doesn’t do it for me. I drank the whole cup, but I wouldn’t have it again.
So I went to the store yesterday and they happened to have this tea as one of the TOTD (tea of the day), so I decided to get it as my $1 iced tea. This tea straight tastes pretty good, despite my expectations. I never bothered trying it last year, but since it was so popular, I thought I might as well. It tastes just like the name, cotton candy. It’s sweet without being overly sweet. Actually, this is probably one of the first teas I don’t need any sweetener added to. I could drink it straight. And it would likely be good any way you want to prepare it (hot, latte, iced) Overall I decided to actually buy some, so its winning me over.
Flavors: Cotton Candy, Sweet
I first tried this tea when it came out as a hot tea, and I didn’t like it. But since it smells so darn good, I figured I’d give it another try, iced this time. It was really delicious as an iced tea! Definitely a blueberry taste. I’ll have to stock up on this one for sure.
Flavors: Blueberry, Floral
