7 Tasting Notes
This is one of my favorite teas, and I’m so sad DAVIDsTEA discontinued it. I love that it turns into a reddish hue and that it’s naturally sweet and tart, and that it’s lovely iced or hot. I also kind of like the fact that it’s more of an herbal infusion than a green tea blend – there’s definitely more extra stuff than tea leaves.
This is one of my favorite teas – I usually never buy more than 2oz of any type of tea, and I bought 4oz of this, which will definitely last me a long while.
I’ve always loved jasmine teas, and this one smells amazing. I normally drink this in the mid-afternoon or the evening because it calms me quite well. Plus, I love drinking green tea at night.
I loved the scent of the tea blend more than the smell and taste of the brewed tea. I added a bit of honey to accent the flavors but it didn’t help much. It tasted more like a regular oolong tea with floral notes than something resembling mulled wine – and I really love mulled wine.
I’m not sure if I smelled vanilla and cloves or if I smelled a muted cinnamon when I opened my tin, but it was very warm scented. But I didn’t taste any orange or anything upon my first sip. As I let it steep longer I started tasting the cloves and a cinnamon finish. It’s a nice tea – not my favorite holiday tea, but it’s nice.
I used one satchet and 10 oz of water (or just filled up my 12 oz cup to that level? I never really properly measure…)
