I bought this at a superb price. The amount you get for price is crazy good. This reminds me of a Tea Friends tea of the same name. Im always drawn in by the strawberry and cream part but meh. Its just ok, not a rec. nor a repurchase. In the end, I do like mixing it with a tasteless white tea I bought. Has a kind of sour, artificial taste that does remind me if its namesake whatsoever.
What I have been expecting? I was craving for some fruit, tasty tea. Fresh taste.
This tea is fruity, indeed! But it was so generic, so basic! I haven’t noticed any spicy note which it should have. It was just a hibiscus & rosehip flavoured tea.
Where are promised apricots? Where are almonds?
Flavors: Fruit Punch
Seems I had a chance to try this one again. Tea bag probably from postcrossing.I don’t remember, as I put tea bags to single bag and picking them now and then.
Well, this time it is definitely more apple-y compared to the last impressions. It has got a very nice scent, baked goodies filling the air; but sadly not so prominent in the flavor. Also, other fruits than red apples would be a great fit, but it is supposed to be apple-pie like so maybe I am just searching for ingredients that shouldn’t be in at all. Keeping the rating on 72
This time I haven’t found ingredients, but this “Winter Bakery” tea is having little notes on the bag as well:Fruity-spicy apple-spicy-cake taste.
And it is quite exact. I noticed mostly roasted almonds when brewed and hot. It was pretty nice, easydrinking and mouth-watering. As it cools down more apple was prominent (mostly in taste), bit pleasantly sour; and that’s it. There is not much of different notes. It wasn’t even much wide in tastes, it was just easy tea with this taste. No wow moments, but certainly nice fruit tea.
Flavors: Almond, Apple, Pleasantly Sour, Roasted Nuts
It is a while since I had only fruit tea I guess. This one did not include rosehips nor hibiscus. And it is called baked apple actually.
It was nice apple tea, pleasantly sour with mostly cinnamon aftertaste. But it was indeed little smoky in taste, don’t know how they made it, but indeed it was like that. It is not too sweet too and it was actually nice and mouthwatering :)
Completely different story than morning tea.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Pleasantly Sour
Wow, it seems that other Steepsterites really liked this tea.
I, on the other hand, didn’t find it very exciting at all. There was a litle bit of promise of caramel in the aroma of loose leaf but once it was steeped, it turned out to be just a good-quality rooibos with no extra flavoring to it. I enjoyed it as my last tea of last night, but there was not much to it. A good but forgettable cup.
Traveling Tea Box C #16
My moms whole side of the family is pure GERMAN and live there. So instinctively I HAD TO TRY THIS. It was definitely a reminder of Germany and the many tea times I enjoyed there as a little girl. Just because of the memories it brought back I will have to keep a few Tablespoons of this one for myself. To whoever added this(I don’t have the list on hand right now) I thank you for helping bring back a great part of my childhood.
Eleventh tea sampled from TTB-C
Tee aus Deutschland! Wie aufregend! :p
So, I had to try this tea because anything with German words all over it always lures me in. I’ve dabbled in several languages, but one day, I was listening to a German song and all of the sudden I realized that it was the most beautiful language I’ve ever heard. Years later, the love hasn’t died. ( in case anyone is curious, the particular song that started it all can be heard here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvSgCtndxAA )
Yeah, so, really superficial reason to try a tea. Why should a caramel rooibos from Germany be different or better than any other? Much like coconut, caramel is a flavor that I love in everything except tea. In tea, it leaves a most unpleasant aftertaste. The caramel in this tea really wasn’t so strong. I got the burnt sugar flavor that Fiddling noted. However, I still got hints of the caramel aftertaste. Nothing unbearable, but it ruins the experience some nonetheless. I let my husband finish the cup and he loved it (he rates it about 92).
Woe to me that almost everyone else can enjoy the best dessert flavors in tea and I get to have the rare disagreeable palate. boooo.
Tea #5 from Traveling Tea Box C
It looks like I’m the first one here on Steepster to log this tea. I tried finding more information about it online, but didn’t find much other than a few German blogs, one of which priced this baby for 2.50 Euro for 250g…. that’s less than $7/lb. Blew my mind.
This was easily my favorite tea in the box. It tastes of scrumptious, (not overly) burnt sugar. The rooibos base is so, so deliciously rich. The liquor was the deepest red I’ve ever seen come from rooibos.
I usually don’t resteep rooibos, but given how flavorful the first round was, I decided to give it another go for about ten minutes. The results were nearly as fantastic as the first steep. The gooey caramel quality was still present, and the rooibos was still incredibly flavorful.
Now all I need is a German friend who can ship a steady supply of this to my door…
