316 Tasting Notes
Hmm, smelling this it smells really good. Festive even. But tasting it, its quite different. I can taste the spice I was smelling, but it also tastes creamy and somewhat like eggnog. Which I don’t care for. I think it’s safe to say I won’t be buying any more of this one. I’ll finish what I have, but it isn’t for me.
Flavors: Creamy, Eggnog, Spices
I don’t know why I thought I’d like this tea… But when I got it, the overwhelming smell of bergamot and lavender was so strong, I almost didn’t want to try it. I steeped it for 1 minute, added some sugar, and it’s drinkable. I don’t like the flavour at all. It has an after taste and its really weird for me. Bergamot and lavender aren’t things I like.
Flavors: Bergamot, Lavender
Picked up literally 10g of this to try – and since its such a light tea, 10g seems like a fair bit. But I was so looking forward to trying this, and since it is now online as well – maybe I’ll sneakily use my FS reward on it. At first I only steeped it for 4 mins, but it needed more, so I stuck the leaves back in for a bit. I added some sugar and it’s actually not bad. Better than the first 4 mins, haha! It has a vegetal taste. Also kinda buttery and floral. I don’t get any citrus/lemon out of this at all… Which is disappointing, but maybe resteeped will be different? Anyways, so far for a straight white, I quite enjoy it.
Flavors: Butter, Floral, Vegetal
I got about 20g to try from somebody, so I’d get what everyone thought was so great… But honestly it wasn’t the best matcha I’ve had. I tasted the mocha a little bit, but it was subdued. And maybe it’s because it’s older, but still… Wish it was better. I think Steeped Tea’s is better than this. Even if it isn’t sweetened.
Flavors: Grass, Mocha
Got a sample of this tea, and it smells sort of like amaretto… Not my favourite smell. It’s sweet, and definitely reminds me of amaretto. Sweet, with a play dough taste to it. Not a bad tea, but not the best either.
Flavors: Nuts, Sweet
Okay, even the ingredients in this tea scream gross to me. I got a sample of this, so I might as well give it a go. Being a green tea it’s sort of delicate, so I only steeped it for 2 mins. I can taste the peppercorns and popped rice… Possibly the pineapple. I had to put sugar in this to even drink it, so that might be bringing it out. I’m really glad I can’t taste the bamboo cause I hate that in tea. This tea is drinkable but meh.
Flavors: Peppercorn, Pineapple
Someone sent me a sample of this one, and I decided to have it before bed tonight. I don’t know why I haven’t tried this before. Maybe because of the mint? Who knows – but now that I like mint in teas, I was more than willing to try it. This is actually really good! It’s nice and relaxing, with the citrus/lemon and the mint. The other fruity notes are really nice as well. I’m gonna have to buy some of this! So soothing.
Flavors: Apple, Citrus, Mint
This is very chocolatey – in fact it tastes more like chocolate than orange. Even the smell is overwhelmingly chocolate. And its more like a dark chocolate taste. I can barely taste the orange at all. Not that it’s a bad tea, I’d just like more orange.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Dark Chocolate
