94 Tasting Notes
Wow. This is a great tea. I oversteeped because my mother called and I was worried that it would be bitter but it really wasn’t. I really got the chocolate flavour to start but now that it has cooled off some the mint flavour is amazing. This will be a regular in my cupboard for sure.
Wow. Having this tea hot tonight before bed. I wasn’t thrilled at first. Found it quite weak but as is my usual custom with herbals I left the tea leaves in while I drank the tea. And it is wonderful after about 15 minutes. It is a very light colour but the flavour is not light at all. Apparently citrus is my go to flavour this year. I added a touch of Agave Nectar to this. Next time I will try it without the agave just to see how it is.
I can’t wait to have this one iced. Of course I need to get some more for sure.
Loving this tea now. I have steeped for the recommended time and put milk in it. Wow. What a difference. I need to order some more of this before it goes away because it is amazing. Especially after it has sat for a bit. That is when you get the Chili hit from it.
Can’t say enough good things about this tea now. Glad I have given it another chance.
Not going to rate this one yet. I want to take my bag and open it and give it a shake and give this tea one more try. The attempt tonight resulted in a barely coloured water that had no strawberry flavour and just a hint of bamboo. I am sure it is that it all settled and all I mostly got was bamboo leaves in the strainer. I even left it to steep while I drank it.
The only thing that gave it some flavour was adding some Goji Pop. Hopefully attempt 2 will be better.
So excited to go to the Westboro store and get this tea today since it is no longer available online. My first sip I was overwhelmed by the coconut which is not one of my favourite things. After it had cooled a little the chocolate and raspberry really came out and I am enjoying it alot more. I will likely try it again tomorrow with milk and see if that changes anything.
Still dissapointed this is a limited edition tea. Hope they bring it back next spring.
I normally leave my tea bags in the cup, especially for herbals since I find them quite weak. Well I tried that with this one since it didn’t have much colour and it was horrible. I took the tea leaves out and although I find the peppermint to be overly strong I am enjoying this tea a lot. I am actually sitting here yawning and that is unheard of for me. I think this may become my nighttime tea from now on since I have so many problems sleeping.
Well off to bed. LOL.
I am still not 100% sure how I feel about this tea. I like my black teas quite stong and often leave the tea bag in when drinking them. Sometimes they get bitter so I decided not to leave my leaves in with this one. I steeped for 5 minutes in my Tea Tumbler travel mug. I found that quite weak so after a few sips I decided to put the strainer back in. I think I will leave the tea leaves in all the time I drink this although next time I will be adding milk to see how it changes my feelings about this tea.
I am enjoying it and will drink it often on cold days but I just need to figure out how to best enjoy it.
Love this tea. I left it to steep while drinking over half of it since I enjoy a stronger tea and it was wonderful. A little tart but that could be remedied by only steeping for the 5 minutes suggested. This was my sample tea in my first order and I am very glad I ordered it today when I placed my second order.
