100 Tasting Notes
Minty with a little sweetness at the end. Soothing when hot. I don’t really like iced tea so I haven’t tried it cold. Super similar to other mint teas – would be interchangeable with any of them. Tasted 07.2018
Flavors: Mint, Sweet
Tastes like cinnamon and ginger. Initially really good, but then I started to feel uncomfortable with a burn at the back of my throat after each sip. Todd really liked it. I started to feel nauseated and was unable to finish it. Tasted 09.2018. 1/10 for me, 8/10 for Todd
Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger, Spicy
Initially this tea smelled like a strong candle, which is a big aversion to me. But I sipped it and it was rich and caramel-y and complex. It grows on you with each sip. It also improves in the mug/while it cools and airs out (like wine?).
Flavors: Caramel, Spices, Sweet, Toasted
Steeped for 3 minutes, but tasted like very very dilute root beer. The smell is spot on, but the tea tasted like nothing. I tried steeping it longer for more flavor, tried the tea both hot and cold, tried making Popsicles – but no matter what I did it still tasted very dilute with almost no flavor. I really wanted to like it b/c they captured the smell so well, and I love root beer, but it just doesn’t taste like anything. Tasted 09.2018
Flavors: Root Beer
Light, pleasant, warm – nice in the evening. Has a holiday feel. I do feel like it could easily be substituted with another holiday tea and I wouldn’t notice. Really anything with cinnamon in it could take its place. Tasted 09.2018
Flavors: Cinnamon, Rooibos
Per directions, steeped 2 bags for 3 minutes, poured over ice. Tasted watery and bitter – it made me grimace when I drank it. Mixed with the iced tea with Raspberry Hibiscus, Melon, Raspberry Pomegranate. Mixture made it more drinkable but still not something I would choose to drink – still forcing it down to not waste it. Tasted 08. 2018.
Flavors: Bitter, Cranberry, Sour
Steeped 3 minutes and poured over ice, chilled per directions. Smells like my middle school Bath & Body Works locker freshener – very artificial berry smelling. Tastes like nothing.
Tried this flavor hot as well – tastes like nothing. Tasted 10.2018
Flavors: Artificial, Berry, Sweet
Per directions, steeped 4 bags in 2 cups of hot water for 3 minutes. Then mixed with cold water and chilled. Tastes very plain. Smells like citrus, but that is not evident in the flavor. Tried it hot – brewed for 2 min. Tasted like bad water. Tasted 10.2018
Flavors: Citrus, Sour
