413 Tasting Notes
I absolutely had to try this one. What a whacky flavor. The fake cream flavoring they’re using totally does give me the impression of cereal milk. I don’t know that I love this, but it’s interesting to try! It probably tastes best cold. I taste frosted flakes! How fun. Thanks to amandastory516 for the share!
When it was hot, this tea was kind of eh. Once it’s cooled down to room temperature, it’s rather lovely! I never have nuts and fruit together, so at first I didn’t notice what I was tasting, but the almond and strawberry are both present, and they complement each other so nicely. I look forward to having more!
I was thinking about Harney’s cinnamon tea when I picked this one, so I was surprised by how mild this is. The black tea is very nice with no bitterness, and the cinnamon is rather muted. This is one you wouldn’t want milk with because it would overwhelm the flavors. It’s definitely not a spicy chai. It’s just a mild black tea with light cinnamon. Not bad.
When I was a kid, we had a small fig tree that would produce one fig a year. The six of us would split that one fig, and it was always so wonderful. I haven’t found a store that carries fresh figs, and I don’t like dried ones, so anyway, maybe fig tea will do the trick? Actually, this one tastes entirely like roses. I thought it was fun that the blend had oats in it, but all I can taste is rose. Since I’m not a big fan of floral teas, sadly this is not a winner for me. Still, thanks to amandastory516 for the sample! Can’t rate it too highly because it doesn’t taste how it’s supposed to at all.
Thanks so much to amandastory516 for the swap! This was the first one I tried because I love horchata, and I would love to find a tea that accomplishes that flavor. Surprisingly, the main flavors I get here are a light pineapple/coconut along with some nice toastiness. I can say that it mildly evokes horchata, but really, it’s delicious regardless. It’s so light and tasty. The resteep tasted like plain genmaicha. I’m glad I have enough for more cups!
I used four bags of this to make a pitcher of tea to drink cold. The box was $2 at TJMaxx, and this is pretty tasty, especially for that price. I definitely get the sweet caramel, and the rooibos is good as well. Neither overpowers the other. I even got a decent resteep from the bags. I’m very pleased with this purchase! I’m pretty surprised by all the negative reviews.
I’m so bad at remembering to unsteep teas. I bought a cute kitchen timer at a little shop, but it doesn’t ring unless the times are longer than five minutes. So anyway I oversteeped this tea horribly the first time, and it was undrinkable. I had enough leaf left for a small second cup, and that was very nice. The green is mild, and the vanilla is pleasant. There may be a little bit of fruitiness. I wish I hadn’t ruined my first cup, but thanks to tea-sipper for sharing!
