72 Tasting Notes
This is my favorite Celestial Seasonings product by far, and one of the only bagged teas I keep on hand. It’s sweet and smooth and earthy, and it smells incredible. The vanilla flavor is strong and doesn’t taste artificial. It’s great before bedtime. It’s a sweet tea, but I do sweeten it lightly to bring out the vanilla even more.
I love oolongs and this is a very good one…in fact, I wish I had more than my little 10g sample. Very smooth with no bitterness, and a slight sweetness to it. I’m on my third infusion and I’m still getting a good infusion, with each getting slightly more mellow. I am now interested in trying more teas from Seven Cups.
This was my first time trying this brand and this type of green tea, and I was pretty impressed. The sachet was silky and had plenty of space for the leaves to infuse. The flavor was very mild and lightly sweet. Of the new teas I have sampled (from a traveling tea box) this week, this one is so far, my favorite. I will most likely purchase this tea in the future.
On first tasting, I found the pistachio overwhelming. After a few sips though, it seemed to balance a little better. The rooibos is nice. After brewing it a bit stronger than usual, the apple flavor came through. However, I wish there were more apple pie spice flavor to the tea! Nonetheless, it’s a very drinkable rooibos.
