84 Tasting Notes
well i went to the store to get their holiday teas and they didnt have any at all :( so i got a box of the 5 different flavors and this is the first im trying.
the color is much darker than i expected which is making me wuss out a bit lol
it reminds me of a candy cane, its good, im glad i tried it! now i want to try this loose leaf to see if its better (prob is lol)
i dont normally drink herbal teas but everyones reviews of minty teas has got me in a mint mood! i think this would be delicious if i added hot chocolate to it :) i wont because im already relaxed on the couch :p
this tea is steeping now. ive had this for a while so i dont know why i havent tried it before. i love the taste of pears but hate the texture (same with bananas)
the leaves are very pretty and dry smell very nice. while its steeping it smells almost the same theres something different i just cant put my finger on it…and seeing as i dont drink much white teas this may be why :p
so the leaves got huge i love it! its so pretty and the liquor is a very pale yellow
it tastes very nice unsweetened. nothing like real pear thats for sure but more like pear candy. with sugar its even more candyesque :) i like it. i can see myself drinking this.
im using an acrylic travel mug i got from starbucks that has a screen thats keeps the tea leaves from being sipped up so im sure i will be over brewing this as i continue on drinking it.
so this is one of my comfort teas :) the color is a dark amber and smells exactly like cinnamon sticks! its amazing. the only thing i dislike about this tea is that it is completely unbearable to drink if unsweetened and milk/cream has not been added. i added cream and sugar and it tastes like a liquid cinnamon bun!!
this tea has left stickyness on the lid’s inside of my 4oz tin…anyone know y? it happened to my sisters aswell.
i dont know y i got it again….oh yeah i was actually running late today for my fiancee’s dr appointment. i edited my slider rating because i had it un sweetend today because first thing in the morning i didnt want a sugar shock (D&D puts waaayyyyy too much sugar in any drink you ask for) well i never waist tea, and i couldnt finish this. i probably had 1/4 of the cup. ive now learned my lesson i will not be getting their hot tea any more. if i want tea from them ill get their raspberry iced, at least i can drink that.
i will be editing this post with my re-steep i plan on doing so stay tuned :) (i know i said i wouldn’t but check my gingerbread review and you will see why)
everything about this tea is amazing! b4 i head over to my parents tomarrow for our family christmas party i may try this shaken with ice! the smell of this tea alone is enough to get my mouth watering like crazy, only to realize it tastes almost the same as it smells!!
so im sitting here nursing some stitches and a bruised knuckle (darn snow shovel) and thought that strawberry would be perfect right now for the situation. i was right :) this tea never fails me if steeped right.
the color is a medium amber.
re-steeped this and surprisingly enough it isnt bad, i re-steeped for 10 mins and theres no bitterness but i can tell its not the same, it lost some of its strawberry flavor and gained an extra sweetness. i enjoy this. :) maybe ill get brave enough to do a 3rd sometime soon.
im steeping this now so i will be logging as i go with this tea :)
so this will be my first Rooibos. i got this in the chai sampler 4 pack. in the tin it smells very nice but there was something off about it but not in a bad way it was one of those smells that reminded me of something as a child, and now that i think about it i remember what it was (ill tell you if your interested so those who are not dont have to read it)
i picked this one because i wanted to try something different i had laying around and im making my fiancee a cup of vanilla so i thought id have a vanilla too but not the same.
the color of this tea is so pretty it makes me wish i brewed it in my clear glass mug and not my christmas mug. i did a taste test like i do with all my teas without sugar and it was a very pleasant flavor just not to the sweetness i usually like but i didnt have to add as much to get it to what i like. the liquor smells just like the “leaves” (is Rooibos leaves?)
the flavor is comforting :) id say this was a good decision on my part.
i thought i was running late this morning so i wasn’t able to make tea for myself. so i stopped at a Dunkin Donuts drive through and knew i didn’t want coffee so i decided to try their tea for the first time…its a plain English breakfast blend there really isn’t anything special about this. will i buy it again? probably, on another rush around morning. will i regret buying it? yeah probably, just like i did this morning. it tasted like tea and was exactly what i needed right then and there so it did the job, but it left me wanting my loose leafs at home.
i just had to make a cup :) its been calling to me ever scene my last post about it.
it is a very smooth and fruity tea. i would love to try this iced but i have noticed my mug is now empty ;) maybe with a second infusion? it is defiantly not an every day cup in my book, but for someone who is bonkers for apricots it may be. i only wish it tasted more like a flavored black and not an herbal.
