112 Tasting Notes
Cinnamon, apple and chamomile turned out to be a great flavor combination. This was one of my favorites. The cinnamon apple flavor was definitely the most prominent and the Chamomile was more of a background flavor.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon
Sumerberries with Rosehip was a mild fruity tea. It was slightly sweet but it did not taste tart like many other fruit herbal teas.
I steeped 2 cups with one bag. The first cup was Ice water steeped for only about 8 minutes then the second cup was about 85 degrees steeped for about 5 minutes. The mild flavor was likely due to the relatively short steeping time for the ice tea and the fact that the hot tea was steeped with the used teabag, but I really enjoyed it anyways.
I was excited to try this tea because I thought Honey and Lemon Tea would taste great. However, I found it a letdown… I had trouble tasting the honey flavor and in general the combination of flavors didn’t go together that well. I did finish the cup of tea but I didn’t enjoy it very much.
This is “Green Tea with Lemongrass”. The title on the outside of the box doesn’t say ‘with lemongrass’ but that is what it says on the tea bag labels.
I enjoyed the smooth green tea flavor but I would have enjoyed pure green tea better than this combination.
There are no preparation instructions on the box so it took some trial and error before I got it right. I almost gave up on this tea after my first cup but I am glad I came back and tried preparing it differently.
1st try – 96 degree Celsius water for about 6 minutes
I liked the fruit flavors mixed with rooibos but it was way too tart. Rating 50/100
2nd try – Ice water for about 1 hour
Still a bit tart but not as bad as the first try. Rating 70/100
3rd try – about 90 degree Celsius water for about 90 seconds
Very fruity taste blended with rooibos with a tart aftertaste. Rating 70/100
Flavors: Fruity, Rooibos, Tart
This is the first rooibos tea I have tried and I really liked it. The name is perfect, it makes you feel like you are curled up on the couch beside the fireplace.
It just gives you a feeling of warmth (not just from the temperature but also from the taste).
I really enjoyed it and I will definitely be drinking this again soon, especially through the cold winter.
