48 Tasting Notes
I got this for Valentine’s Day and I love it. I will admit that just by looking at the name of this tisane, I thought there’d be too much going on. I am happy to have been wrong: the flavors of citrus and pineapple and lavender and sage = pure deliciousness. Imagine if a fairy lived on a tropical island: this is what she’d drink in the evenings.
Tried this again: two tea bags in one mug, and upped the sweetener (stevia), and I am liking this tea more. The flavors are more pronounced (duh, Serenity, you are using twice as much tea). I will try the double tea bag bag approach stovetop style and see how it goes. Watch: next note will be all: I used 1/4 cup of milk and 3/4 cup water and four tea bags and bazinga!
The unique flavor of roasted rice makes this tea so terrific. Have you ever had it? Do you like popcorn? The rice, which puffs and sometimes pops as it is being roasted, has a toasty, savory-sweet flavor a bit like popcorn. Do you think dogs’ paws have a popcorn-y fragrance? I do. There is something wonderfully comforting about the jiffy-pop, dog paw aroma of this tea and as it may be obvious, it is a favorite of mine, and has been for so long.
When I first visited Berkeley, California, I took a walk in the evening and was amazed by the incredibly lovely floral fragrance emanating from a shrub I was passing. Night blooming Jasmine, someone told me. I looked at the beautiful, star shaped, little, white flowers, marveling at the amazing scent: I wanted to bury myself in the flowers; I wanted to eat that scent. Sometimes you get what you want. When I open the bag of this tea, I am transported to that Jasmine filled evening. The tea tastes delicious: light, refreshing, smooth and naturally Jasmine-infused.
Bonjour! Paris, decaf, by Harney & Sons is now on my shopping list after I enjoyed a sample of this delicious tea. It is very flavorful: vanilla, caramel, and citrus are the flavors I taste. Also, there is a special flavor that I don’t often taste when having a cup of decaf tea. The flavor is…tea! I love it!
Got a sample of this (thanks Josie Jade) and it is so scrumptious my feelings about this tea can best be expressed in a song:
