Dry aroma wasn’t pleasing. It was very strong on lemon balm, earthy as well. On the bag they suggest brewing 5-7 minutes and with boiling water.
I did it with steeping maybe for 3-4 minutes; certainly not boiling water. I think it can be around 80°C, because it’s green tea after all.
Aroma is still earthy. And herbal. Bit lemony too.
But this tea tastes better than smells like. It is still somehow earthy, but it has got nice taste of lemon balm and more-less fresh green tea. Of course you can’t expect grassy notes or freshly cut grass, or all the nice things about really fresh tea. It brews brown too – not nice grass green colour.
Flavors: Earth, Herbs, Lemon
I received this tea from Russia today via Postcrossing.
In water it turns into deep red colour (hibiscus makes its job) and exotic fruits aroma rises up. I have noticed in scents those (no order): orange, pineapple, mango, maybe bit of rosehip.
In taste (it was hot for long time) it was mostly pineapple and mango.
It was delight and quite suprisingly refreshing. Bit of tartness (but I steeped for really long, way too much)
Flavors: Hibiscus, Mango, Pineapple, Rosehips, Tart
A friend gave me this tea as a birthday gift and it has been very nice~. The aroma is a fruity sweet and smooth, and the taste is equally as pleasant. A nice flowery wine taste (without the alcoholic taste of course~), and the aftertaste is is a nice wood and. I really enjoy it during the evening and/or nighttime.
Flavors: Floral, Flowers, Fruit Tree Flowers, Fruity, Sweet, Wood
Generally I like strawberry, and I like chocolate too, so this tea seemed like a superb choice – well, it wasn’t. I can’t really feel the chocolate in it, and it also lacks strawberry flavor.
Still it has some nice flavor, but I couldn’t really define it… for me it just doesn’t works.
For a tea called ‘Vanilla Wave’ it sure is cinnamony. That’s really the predominant flavor and scent here. I had my apprehensions since I don’t really like straight-up cinnamon teas, really preferring it in blends like chai. To be honest, I’m not always a big fan of vanilla teas either. Like caramel teas, there’s really only a few that I like.
This actually isn’t that bad. The creaminess of the vanilla keeps the cinnamon from being too overpowering. With some sugar, it’s almost cakey. There’s supposedly apricot in there as well, but it’s nonexistent, probably lost under the stronger flavors.
I can’t believe it; a tea with hibiscus in it that doesn’t make me scream, clutch at my throat, and drop to the floor in death throes. Again, picked up by accident (note to self: read the box more thoroughly), but in this case a happy one.
I was enticed by the idea of a blueberry and cream-flavored tea, so I purchased this. I guess the blueberry and cream flavors cut into the hibiscus and made it bearable, or this flavor just doesn’t have that much. I smell it more than taste it, though there is a slight suggestion of it at the beginning of the sip. It doesn’t taste overwhelmingly of blueberry either, but it’s creamy and sweet. Not bad at all.
I’ve never tasted anything barberry-flavored before, but hey, normally if it’s berry anything I’m down for it.
I didn’t realize when I bought it that it had the devil weed, hibiscus, in the blend. I hate hibiscus; I find its flavor obnoxiously strong and its presence in so many teas proof that some cosmic entity out there hates me. But I’d already spent money on it and opened the package, so I figured I’d give it a shot. The dry blend smelled nice, so I had some hopes for it. Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad. I brewed some up, took a sip, and…
‘HI ORPHIA I’M HIBISCUS. :D :D :D’ Yep. There it is, overshadowing the much more pleasant fruity taste in the background that I assume is the barberry. A shame, because I like the berry taste, but it’s hard to get over the pushy hibiscus, as usual. The berry flavor makes the hibiscus tolerable, but only barely. I finished the cup, at least.
Maybe it’ll be better iced, I don’t know. Whatever the case, I doubt I’ll be buying this again.
