5 Tasting Notes
don’t oversteep this tea! I’m one of those people who often leaves a teabag floating around in their tea so that they can resteep throughout the day. with this tea, unless you like to be overwhelmed with spiciness, I would not recommend doing that. Overall, not my favorite, as I think even when steeped properly the cinnamon overpowers the more subtle notes of the blend (though yes I am aware it is called hot cinnamon sunset, I still think the balance could be improved upon)
I’m a big fan of mint teas, and this one is a lovely addition to my cabinet. I discovered it two years ago I believe, and tried it based on the whimsical polar bears frolicking on the package. probably. anyways. I’ve gone through periods of drinking this tea all day every day for weeks, and I’ve gone through periods of not being that bothered over it. I’m not sure it’s for everyone, but for me at least it’s one of only a handful of teas I always always have in the house (which usually requires stocking up in december as it is seasonal). it’s gentle, festive, and a marriage between a mint and a dessert tea that I quite enjoy.
this tea is a delight. it’s mild, and slightly reminiscent of unsweetened marzipan (which would make sense, given it is almond flavored). It’s not a showstopper in any grandiose way, but it is always pleasant to have in your cabinet. The almond flavor compliments the rooibos more than the other flavored rooibos’ I’ve tried from tealuxe, I believe. all in all, a sturdy and worthwhile addition to your cabinet
Flavors: Almond, Marzipan, Vanilla
this tea is by far my favorite tea. of all the teas I’ve ever drank. It’s the one that most friends request the name of after trying, and works deliciously as a hot or cold tea. the scent is divine, and the coconut flavor is not that overbearing artificial sort of coconut flavor I’ve tasted in teas of a lower caliber. 10/10 cats would recommend.
Flavors: Coconut, Wood
the aroma of this tea both steeped and just in the bag are devastatingly delectable. I mean, it would make a beautiful potpourri, it really smells that good. however, the flavors of the tea after prepared are terribly subtle to my palate unless steeped a bit longer than recommended, which bothers me because I like my tea quite hot. for its aforementioned shortcomings, it still is a pleasant tea. its better in my opinion with sweetener, though I generally prefer teas that do not necessitate sweetener to realize their full potential. If less expensive, I’d probably buy with more frequency. As is, I’ll definitely drink that which remains in my tea cupboard, though I am not convinced I’ll repurchase when I’m out.
Flavors: Almond, Apple, Candy, Caramel, Cinnamon, Oats
