8 Tasting Notes
Is there such a thing as too peachy? I love peaches and usually peach flavored things, but this is pretty cloying and artificial tasting. It has the potential to be refreshing if it wasn’t so sweet. Agree with the poster who said it’s better chilled than hot.
Flavors: Artificial, Peach, Sugar
This tea smells heavenly. When I got the winter collection, I knew my coworker and I would be fighting over it! It just smells like a cozy, delicious dessert enjoyed surrounded by family. A great balance of the spices with a bit of the black tea flavor sneaking in.
Flavors: Caramel, Cardamom, Nutmeg, Orange, Tea, Vanilla
This is a tasty rooibos, with nice rich vanilla/caramel undertone. If someone asked me to name it, I don’t know if I’d say “Gingerbread Cookie”, but it does taste like a molassesey cookie. I love when teas taste like I’m having a decadent dessert, and that’s what this one reminds me of.
Flavors: Butter, Caramel, Dirt, Molasses, Vanilla
I’ve tried this one a couple times and I have to say that it’s best with a little bit of cream added. It bring out the chocolate flavor and dials down the bitterness. Without cream, it’s a little bitter, especially with the black tea as the base.
Flavors: Chocolate, Honey
Very delicious! The right mix of mint and chocolate (with a bit more chocolate than mint flavor). The chocolate has some artificial undertones, which is why I didn’t give it a perfect rating. But it’s very tasty, especially hot! Perfect for a chilly winter day.
Flavors: Artificial, Chocolate, Honey, Mint
This is a nice fruity tea and much better iced than hot. I miss Mango Lassi, which they discontinued, and this one is an okay replacement (but definitely not the same). I find it a twinge too orangy and a little too artificial, but still fairly tasty.
Flavors: Artificial, Mango, Orange
I received this as a gift and find it to have a rather mild flavor. Most of what comes through is the black tea with a hint of cinnamon. Not really detecting much of the plum. It’s drinkable but not exciting and not the first thing I reach for.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Tea
I love this tea iced and often describe it as having the flavor of cotton candy without the cloying sweetness. . .which is ironic since cotton candy is spun sugar. The loose leaf tea is so colorful, and the finished product is refreshing. It doesn’t taste how it smells, however, as the grassiness of the roobios doesn’t come through when steeped. A great summer tea.
Flavors: Cotton Candy, Sweet
