18 Tasting Notes
Tis is a pretty good chai, nice and spicy – but not a true favorite. It can get a touch bitter if it steeps too long, but being a rooibos tea it doesn’t get too terribly bitter. Does not require sweetener, but it can add a bit and bring out the flavor very well – honey is recommended if you want it sweet. Recommended for fans of flavorful, spicy chai tea.
This tea smells amazing, you can smell the cranberry and the orange subtly again the lovely red leaf tea. I have now tried this tea both hot and iced – it is fantastic either way. It only needs a bit of sugar when it’s iced, when it is hot it is fine without sweeteners of any sort. I recommend this for rooibos tea lovers as well as those who love the fruitier teas.
This tea smells amazing, I just had to try it after a customer had ordered a cup and I got a waft of it. It’s a pleasant and spicy smell and the tea itself matches the smell. Not sure if I plan to try it cold/iced, its just so catered to being a hot tea. Recommended for people who enjoy a spicy, but not too much so, and relaxing cup of tea that you can have all cozied up in a blanket. To me it’s name suits it and it is definitely a fall to winter style tea.
I had this at a local restaurant, the Mandarin House of Milford, MA, and I adored it. I’m really picky about chamomile, I often have to sweeten it for it to be tolerable. But this tea was perfect, it has soft but rich flavor. The steep time on the tag is 5 minutes, but even when over-brewed this tea tastes very light and soft. I definitely recommend this to fans of chamomile teas, good ones at that.
Some have commented that it smells like Fruit Loops and I disagree. It smells clean, soft and fresh – the hint of citrus doesn’t overpower the floral, relaxing scent of the chamomile.
