79 Tasting Notes
The first 2 oz envelope of this tea that I bought was fairly good and tasted like salted caramel. The current envelope that I have is very sweet and really doesn’t taste like actual caramels. The tea has no personality! Not ordering it again.
So sweet as to make me gag, I tossed out the entire cup after tasting. So did my husband. The stevia is overpowering even though it is the final ingredient in the list. I also get a faint metallic flavor from this tea which may be the affect of the stevia (which I am not certain of as I have never been sensitive to this before I bought from Davids Tea). I washed out the cups with soap prior to trying another tea. Awful.
Very faint flavors of apple cider and cinnamon. I use two tea bags but the flavor just isn’t there. My husband thought we should use it, just pour 6 oz of water max. Going through teas I bought while I was working long hours and assessing what I should buy again.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Red Apple
Very little flavor in this tea. I steeped to the required time and no flavor. I put in 2 sachets and steeped the required time, just the faintest flavor of cinnamon. Not like a good quality cinnamon spice but more like a very cheap candy. Could not taste vanilla at all. I threw it out; I hate to be wasteful but that was just a bad mistake. Republic of Tea has great label art and generally lousy tea.
Very thin flavor for being a “Double Dark Chocolate.” The last cup I had, I put 3 teabags in my cup and steeped fro the full seven minutes as recommended on the label. Still thin. Yes it has a cocoa flavor, it has a chocolate flavor, and as another reviewer said it also tastes like dirt (must’ve gone flying off of a horse or a motorcycle like I have to recognize that). Republic of Tea has amazing labels but the tea generally just isn’t as good as other brands.
