Samurai TTB #14
Although the teabag smelled cookie-ish, the tea itself tasted mostly of chicory root with a little bit of almond and just a touch of spice. Pretty disappointing, but at least the wrapper is cute and Christmassy!
Flavors: Almond, Spices
Well, why not white tea today?
Took this one, as it sounded nice and I haven’t got white for a long time. I bet I have still it somewhere, but… nevermind.
Today I failed another exam. It was last chance this semester, so… next year probably. If I won’t give up the Uni.
The tea – hmm, decent. Nothing distinctive, but it had got notes of stonefruits and little bit of peach. Maybe little bit mineral. Drying aftertaste. Nothing great, but makes the day little bit brighter.
Maybe this tasting note is short, because I don’t really feel writing something.
Derk, I got your message, but can’t reply. Thanks for information and mine will be on the way this or next week.
Flavors: Mineral, Peach, Stonefruit
This is actually better than I was expecting. I expected tartness from the hibiscus but turns out its actually quite fruity. Mostly strawberry to be exact. I think this would also be a great iced tea. Although today I decided to try it first hot. Next time though… It’s getting iced.
Flavors: Fruity, Strawberry
Ever drive to Wichita? Don’t bother, we took care of it for you. Hot, flat, and highly unexciting…which is why hubby pulled into a World Market on the way out of town so it would at least feel like we had a little whimsy on the trip.
And there this was. It had me at strawberry and the rubber duck on the box. I didn’t even look at the ingredient list, which includes a couple of my unfavorites—hibiscus and licorice.
But you know what? They are barely noticeable in this luscious and remarkably strawberry little surprise. I don’t do alcohol, so I can’t tell you if the daiquiri part of it is flavor-accurate, but this is pleasant and strong on the strawberry. (Most of you know how much I love good strawberry tea.)
Have had one cup hot, one cup chilled. Just right both times. A little sugar and it would taste like Kool-Aid for grownups. Perfect on a triple-digit, fry-yer-eyeballs week.
Mild to light flavored tea. I get a very light citrus/almond note accompanying its mild tea flavor. Agreeable both hot or iced. One of the better white teas I have tried, many tend to have too strong of a citrus flavor for my preferences. I tend to prefer non-herbal, strong black teas; however, this was a delightful change of palate. Four O’Clock has become one of my favorite tea brands based on this tea and their Breakfast/English Breakfast blend. Slightly expensive for an everyday product, but would recommend as an occasional treat.
Flavors: Almond, Bamboo, Citrus
One of my favorite black teas. I drink both iced and hot black tea daily and by far this is one of my favorites. Slightly pricey as far as black teas go, but for me, its worth the price. I would say it is comparable to Twinings. Its a bold, full flavored black tea but does come across as bitter. I would also recommend the white tea from Four O’Clock as well; however, the green tea wasn’t one of my favorites from them.
I made a big pitcher of iced tea. I’ve been drinking most of my tea iced lately. I find it a nice change of pace from having it hot and I’m finding it quite refreshing for the summertime. I mixed together this tea with Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Vanilla and the result was a treat. Tastes like strawberry bubblegum! Really nice! The strawberry flavour was obviously coming from this tea and it did taste like sweet, ripe, juicy strawberries. I will prepare this combination again until my Sleepytime Vanilla is gone and then I will make it using only the Strawberry Daiquiri.
Flavors: Strawberry, Sweet
Want to like. Keep trying to like. But, do not like. Sadface. White teas never seem to ring my bell, so maybe that’s it? I dunno, though. I keep searching for the “almond” in the “almond biscotti”, but I can never find it. All I get is a thin, vague sweetness. If I spot it on the shelves again this holiday season, I think I’ll take a pass.
