53 Tasting Notes
I really like the coffee inspired teas. I was glad that this one is a decaf option I can have in the evening. Strong coffee flavor even though it does does not have coffee beans in it. Try the chicory root, roasted carob and date give it a rich flavor. I am glad that the monk fruit does not make it sweet. I like these coffee inspired teas because I can’t drink much regular coffee because of the acid. This tea is delicious with a little sweetener and almond milk. I would buy this tea again.
Flavors: Chicory, Coffee
One of my favorite cold brewed teas. Green tea with big pieces of dried orange, candied mango and pineapple. Very refreshing. I am really impress with Sub Rosa’s tea there is no sugar or artificial ingredients. Another one of my favorite teas cold brewed is Mint Mojito.
Flavors: Mango, Orange, Pineapple
So glad I added these tea cakes to my last order. I never tried white tea with dried orange peel. It is very good. I used half a cake and brewed it gung fu style. I enjoyed four steeps out of it. I probably could have gotten more. It was good plain but adding a little bit of orange blossom honey made it taste even better.
National Earl Day- drink an Earl Grey type tea. I choose Rosie Earl Grey. Not my favorite Earl Grey but it’s a nice twist. I don’t like rose black tea but it is really good mixed with bergamot. The rose is mild hot it gets a little stronger when it has cooled down. I love all the variations of Earl Grey they have out.
So glad I ordered this tea with my Countdown to Summer box. I have wanted to try her teas too. I thought the ingredients were interesting. Never tried borage and dried lime. The borage is a very striking blue when wet. The rose buds are pretty. Very unique flavor. I like the flavor of the dried lime. I like it with raw honey. I am looking forward to trying all the Countdown to Summer Box starting June 15th. Hope I can wait a week to unwrap each day. It has been a few years since I ordered a box and I’m so glad I did!
When I first tried this matcha a year ago I wasn’t that impressed. In my opinion I did not want to try this matcha as a latte because of the butterfly pea flowers and ginger flavor. I tried it first with water. This time I made it iced mixed with lemonade. Wow it is so much better this way. It intensifies the flavor. The lemon turns the drink purple too. Unfortunately it is not available right now but I hope it comes back in the future.
Flavors: Floral, Ginger
I had a sample of this tea from the advent calendar. I was kind of nervous to try this tea because of the combination of ingredients. I usually do not like rose in teas but I love the rose teas from Vahdam. The rose is not strong at all. It goes really well with the hibiscus and chai spices.
Flavors: Cardamom, Hibiscus, Rose
Ashmanra sip down- the end of American Chocolate a week- drink a chocolate tea. I bought this tea over six months ago and forgot to try it. I really like this chocolate tea. It has a rich dark chocolate flavor. It is not sweet so I added stevia. Delicious as a latte with almond milk and topped with chocolate whipped cream. One of my favorite chocolate teas. Tastes like a dark chocolate cookie. Does not taste artificial at all.
Flavors: Cookie, Dark Chocolate
I stopped by a local tea shop and picked up this tea. So glad I did it is delicious! It is Irish Breakfast Tea, White Chocolate Chips and Irish Cream and Brandy flavoring. The white chocolate makes it creamy. I love the Irish Cream and brandy flavor. I love it with stevia and creamer. I will have to try it iced too. Perfect for St Patrick’s Day or any day!
Flavors: Brandy, Irish Cream, White Chocolate
ashmanra’s monthly sipdown challenge
March 2023- Pi Day
I enjoyed three pie flavored teas today. Fruit Pie Chai is my favorite. I prefer this tea cold brewed rather than hot. It is fruity and creamy. It does have a pie flavor. The combination of spices is not too strong it gives it a pastry flavor. I had this tea for a couple of years but forgot about it. I forgot how delicious it was. I also enjoyed Spiced Pumpkin Pie from Bird and Blend and Sweet Potato Pie from David’s Tea. I enjoyed National Pie Day.
Flavors: Fruity, Pastries, Spices
