75 Tasting Notes
A toasty tea which reminds me of Genmaicha. It’s roasted buckwheat vs. rice which I seem to like better for some reason. After adding honey, this tea tasted a lot like Honey Smacks cereal.
You found a toasty tea that I like NayLynn, thank you for sharing this in the TTB!
Let me start by saying that I’m actually a fan of this tea… minus one caveat; the smell. The good news is that the smell goes away completely IF you add creamer. With sweetener and creamer, it tastes like juicy mango with sweet cream. It’s a Mango Lassi without the tart bite (sourness) that comes with yogurt.
Ok, so I was reluctant to post what I think this smells like, but I feel that I should add it in case someone orders it and is really disappointed… (IMO) it smells like cat spray. There, I said it. Just add creamer before you try it for a better first impression.
Smells like Christmas but tastes like Thanksgiving.
What I mean is that it smells fresh and crisp which makes me think of winter. The blend has the same berry and cinnamon aroma that I associate with the holidays…possibly because stores always set out the cinnamon pine cones and dried fruit garland near their entrances. Flavor wise, the cranberry and cinnamon are the most distinct. This tastes better with sweetener but it still feels like it’s missing something…
Elegant. This tea has light floral and fruity flavors plus a nice rose oil aroma. The green tea base is like a whisper in the background.
My daughter took a sip and said that the name and flavor of the tea made her think of a Doctor Who episode – “Angels Take Manhattan.”

Flavors: Flowers, Fruit Tree Flowers
Without sweetener, this is a nice tea but with sweetener and cream (…yeah, I know) it tastes so much more coconut-y. I just need to find a decent pineapple oolong (maybe even add a dehydrated cherry) so that I can concoct a tasty Pina Colada blend.
Another yummy tea shared by TeaTiff in the TTB!
I love banana bread and the flavor of this is spot-on DELICIOUS! Add sweetener and it’s like drinking desert from a cup. I let my daughter sample it and she requested that we order some asap, so I really hope that he re-blends this soon.
Thank you NayLynn for adding this to the TTB! This has been a lot of fun…now I have to look up who added the others. :))
Flavors: Baked Bread, Butter
I haven’t sampled many vanilla teas so brewed a small sample of this from the TTB. This tea has a strong black tea base with a subtle vanilla flavor but might taste better with a rounded teaspoon scoop (maybe almost 1.5 teaspoon). I was really surprised how strong it tasted after just a 3 minute steep. I wish that I’d read the tasting notes before trying it because I think that adding creamer would’be elevated the flavor of vanilla.
Ok, this is probably going to sound weird but this tea tastes like a Hawaiian Lei smells…
I was surprised to taste very light floral notes more than pineapple but it’s good.
Thank you Nicole for sharing this in the TTB. Your TTB has helped me discover several teas to add to my shopping list!
