173 Tasting Notes


I love the smell of this tea right out of the tin. I love the touch of sweetness, and the almond scent. Brewed, it’s a different story entirely. Just from the scent, all I can think of is yams/squash. Weird, right? I did not like this by itself, so I added a half tsp of turbinado sugar and could actually enjoy it. Makes me sad because the dry tea is so deliciously fragrant. I’m thinking maybe I brewed this one wrong? I will definitely try it again to see.

EDIT: As I sat and finished my cup, I liked this tea more and more. Still, next time I’ll play with the brewing time.

Now that I think about it, this tea reminds me of one of my favorite honey/lemon cough drops :p It’s soothing, and I had this cup just before bed. I suppose it does have a bit of an artificial taste to it, but hey, it’s a cheap and easy feel-better tea :)

I bought a small batch of this tea yesterday and tried it out last night. When you open the bag/tin the berry is the overwhelming scent of the tea, though it is very pleasant, thus why I bought some :p
I made my first cup as directed per the little instructions on the bag. Lovely purple/pink color. Once brewed I could smell the mint much more, which I very much enjoyed. First sip was meh, the next few were okay, but not something I would run home to make. I added a half tsp of turbinado sugar and then it was delicious! I tasted the berry much more and still got the mint finish.
I did try it iced, sort of, I really didn’t have enough ice to cool it down properly, so I won’t say anything about it just yet.

About Me: newlywed! I studied biomedical sciences and will start up medical school here soon. I love to read, paint, sketch, bake, crochet, knit, and lounge around with my Samoyed (Kenai) and two cats (Callie and Maya.) Fandom nerd and Disney girl.

About me and tea: I think I will always and forever consider myself a tea newbie.

I love learning new things about tea, and continue to branch out and try new tea as much as I can. For the most part my favorites seem to be dessert teas. Sweet tooth anyone? lol. I’d love to hear about other people’s favorites, and where you go for tea! My local choices are pretty limited, i.e. Teavana, so bring on the online shopping ;)

Rating System: I’ll try to stick to it ;P

55-75: I’ll enjoy drinking what I have, but probably won’t get this again
35-55: Hmm, Not bad, not great. I guess I’ll finish this cup… might try another depending
