9 Tasting Notes
Puerh tea that makes a smooth tea because it was stored properly I bet. This tea is so soothing and strong tasting. But here comes the orange flavour and it adds a punch that bring you back to your senses. This is a very nice balance of flavours.
I also love to cook with it by following this recipe – http://betterteas.com/chinese-puerh-tea-eggs-recipe/
Flavors: Orange, Orange Zest
The vanilla in this is strong from the smell to the taste. And I feel that is good as it is the name of the tea. The sweet smell can wake me up alone but sip it and it relaxes me. The pear gives the fruity punch to this tea like a tickle to the tongue. The jasmine and rose notes are also there, yet only gives layers to the vanilla, and I like that too.
This tea confses me as it does say “Energize” but it relaxes me. Weird thing though is, I love its relaxing properties.
Flavors: Pear, Rose, Vanilla
First smell of dried berries iswhat greets you. Almost floral like a Victoria Secret perfume (I know, I;m weird comparing it to this) but this is what makes it inviting in my opinion.
Tastes incredibly fruity. Tangy as it smells but not too sour. I love this tea. I even used it to make the Chocolate bark recipe shared in http://empiroteas.com.au/chocolate-tea-bark-recipe
Flavors: Berry, Pleasantly Sour, Sweet, Tangy
Fresher and subtler than Starbucks’ matcha, this is much more pleasant.
Strong matcha doesn’t always mean better. Earthy goodness than works really well with CBTL’’s Vanilla and then blended really well to distribute the flavour m a lovely blended makes for a lovely drink. A favourite of mine.
Flavors: Green, Vanilla, Wet Earth
Grassy. Green. Strong not like an ordinary tea bag brew of green tea. The first time I was introduced to matcha. It was not like anything I had ever tried but it does grow on you. I like it but as far as coffee culture and tea shop cultures go, I prefer the consistency of CBTL. For a home brew, I have my Aracha Matcha from Teas.com.au
Flavors: Grass, Green, Milk, Wet Earth
Spicy, strong tea that is not for the faint tea liker. Full notes of flavour.
I love love love this tea!!! The first tea I had really fallen in love hard for.
in the beginning of my tea tasting adventure, I was only into black tea then moved on to fresher green tea, but when I tried chai for the first time in CBTL, I had bought a whole can of it.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Spices, Spicy
soothing aroma and taste is heavenly. the rice smell is prevalent in this brew making it nice, inviting, and very pleasant just like warm rice meal. the taste of the green tea is what wins me over. it makes my shoulders relax and comforted. over-all a very nice cup at par with CBTL’s
Flavors: Green, Rice

Anise you smell right away. Fennel washes down the throat.
A spicy almost like a chai but no tea taste but rather the naturally sweet spices in this brew.
Such a delightful cup that you forget it is healthy. But packaging said not to consume daily for long, so be wary.
Flavors: Anise, Licorice
