47 Tasting Notes
I might be biased because I typically cannot drink chai blends (allergic to peppercorns) but I was quite fond of this!
It was sweet and pleasant, kind of reminiscent of a gingerbread cookie? I like it with a small splash of cream, but it was good on it’s own too.
I did not get very much “kick” of spices that is typical of a chai, but it was a very pleasant desert blend after dinner. I got a lot of the vanilla and nutty notes, with a little bit of cinnamon and cardamom on the end.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cookie, Ginger, Vanilla
I was kind of neutral about this. It was not unpleasant, but it did remind me a bit of earl grey tea (which I am not typically fond of).
I did like it a little bit more once I added some cream.
The peachy scent set me up with high expectations that the bergamont/orange sort of flavour did not deliver.
Flavors: Bergamot, Floral, Orange, Peach, Smoke
I am very fond of flowering tea, so I will admit to some bias.
I found this to be a very light, creamy floral tea. There was an overall pleasany green/grassy note as well, and the bloom was quite beautiful.
I will say it tasted more of lily than of lavender. I suspect that is how they managed to avoid the soapy flavour lavender often offers.
Flavors: Citrus, Cream, Floral, Grass, Honey
This tea tasted absolutely terrible! As others have commented despite the sweet smell, there were terrible notes of chemically alcohol, with an odd smokey note… it was reminiscent to getting a spritz of Pledge wood cleaner to the mouth.
I tried adding cream, I tried it cold- all in all it is just an absolutely terrible tea.
Flavors: Alcohol, Fruity, Metallic, Perfume, Smoke
I was pleasantly surprised by my enjoyment of this tea. I am not typically a fan of fruity teas, but enjoy iced peach tea enough to try it. It was refreshing and enjoyable over ice, but out of curiousity I also tried a hot mug with some cream and it was good this way as well.
Iced there is an extreme fruity flavour, the peach definitely overwhelms the palette, with a little bit of citrus notes.
Hot with cream it is reminiscent of peach cobbler. The aroma is similar to this as well.
Flavors: Apricot, Candy, Orange Zest, Peach
HOT: This tastes exactly as it is described- black tea with apple and coconut notes. I did not think I would like it very much, but was pleasantly surprised. I am not a huge fan of cinammon and was pleased to find an autumn tea that was not overly spiced. If you add a splash of cream, it mellows out the tartness of the apple and brings the coconut flavour out more. I personally prefer it plain though.
ICED: the apple/pineapple tartness comes out much more strongly iced. It actually tasted nice with a splash of cream, though i still prefer it hot.
Flavors: Apple, Coconut, Green Apple, Jam, Sweet
HOT: This tea tastes mostly like straight up coconut milk, with some grassy/floral tones to it. I found it to be a little boring, although I do enjoy coconut milk. I added a splash of cream, and it brought some vanilla notes out pretty strongly, and I tried some with lemon and was surprised to discover I preferred it this way. Overall I felt that the tea was good, especially if you like vanilla, just boring and lacking the depth of flavour that I prefer from oolong tea.
ICED: I normally prefer hot tea, but this tea has some extra floral and grass notes that come out a little more iced. I like it better without cream than with. With cream it tasted exactly like a glass of coconut milk.
Overall this tea was boring to me. I am sure however there are some coconut lovers out there that would be much more satisfied than I was.
Flavors: Coconut, Cream, Floral, Grass, Nutmeg
