67 Tasting Notes
I absolutely love the smell of this tea!! I can really smell the blueberry and the cream cheese.. after the first few sips all I could really taste was the blueberry and I couldn’t really get any of the cream cheese,, I wanted it more creamy so I added rice milk with this to make it a tad more sweeter, and I always thought that rice milk tasted like cake so all the better, now it’s very creamy and blueberry.. I still can’t taste that cream cheese!! I will try it again maybe with a blend of pumpkin cheesecake..
This was an alright tea, I felt like having a tea bag… the smell was so strong with the chai.. it was so spicy for the smell, it put me off a little… I couldn’t really smell the cocoa in this… the taste of the tea is the exact opposite,, I can taste the cocoa, and not so much the chai.. I did add milk and sugar to tone it down though…. It was drinkable.. I did enjoy it… I wouldn’t buy it or feel the need to drink this again..
This tea was weirdly oily… is that strange to say?? There was alot of little oil bubble things at the top of the mug.. or is that just london water for you? I don’t know…
the taste of the rasberry was so strong that I couldn’t really get the chocolate in this,, even with actual chocolate chips.. maybe the oil was from this?? Sour after too much brewing…
tea is usually flavored with flavoring oils, and so it may be the residue from the flavoring oil that you’re experiencing.
I’ve noticed that with the teas we have with actual chocolate bits in them, there’s definitely a greasy residue.
I don’t know what to get of this taste. It’s not a bad taste, you can taste the rooibos tea in this, quite a woodsy taste, I can’t really taste white chocolate in this, maybe a little hint of toffee but otherwise it tastes like a sweet rooibos wood flavour.. all in all.. it’s not as it says on the tin, actually it tastes a very small amount of irish creme!! I should put some in if I had any on hand haha..
I would drink it all.. I wouldn’t buy this tea again, I got a sample of it and I’m glad I’ve had it, been sifting through bags and bags of samples!! a million left to go! haha.
White chocolate is such a light flavor on its own; I think it’s hard to find a balance of other ingredients that don’t overpower it.
I NEED TO GET MORE OF THIS TEA… WOW,, my perfect coffee substitute..
Smelling it from the bag it smells like black tea with coffee beans… smokey.. roasted.
brewing the tea, it smells like coffee!!! A really lovely roasted coffee smell, oh I loved it..
tasting it, I could tell it was tea, which to me was a good thing, because if I wanted a full on coffee, I would have just made coffee instead.. it still had the good coffee taste, I’m glad it was smooth and rich but it wasn’t as latte as I had wanted.. I will be making this again with frothy milk, ohh latte!!
I love this tea… The smell from the bag, I couldn’t really detect much from this smell… Brewed, it smells so much better, I get a nutty chocolate mate.. I loved it… even better,, the taste..
Tasting it.. It was a perfect strong chocolate taste… not a sweet chocolate, more of a bitter chocolate which I loved. It was rich, not as smooth as I had hoped but seriously.. steeping this tea for a little longer than usual really REALLY makes the difference..
Now that the tea is cold I tried to have a sip, shockingly.. I like this tea cold rather than hot.. only because I can taste it more, the sweetness comes more like this,
I don’t know if I’d buy this again… I’d definitely drink it again but I wouldn’t stock up bags of this…
I absolutely loved this tea, it is my perfect peppermint tea, not too much peppermint in here and the perfect amount of chocolate to compliment it..
I couldn’t smell so much from the bag, I only noticed the cute red lips which made me all happy and fuzzy.. the aroma of the tea brewed is lovely, it’s such a perfect black tea smell with peppermint, I can smell something sweet, not sugar though…
I drank this alone… no milk or sugar. It was perfect, I was gulping this down, and I might even have a resteep of it!! It tastes like after eight chocolates (if you’ve ever tried) which I eat constantly at work and to have this as a tea?!? I’m buying more of this! I NEED THIS TEA IN MY LIFE…
re-writing this review seeing as the last one was at about 4 in the morning and I was so tired… plus it was rude to run away from entertaining my guests (at such an hour, I know :p) to writing this review, I needed to remind myself of writing this.. so here goes!
First of all the smell.. from the bag.. I get the sweet smell from it, the bakewell tart is clearly the smell of it.. after steeping for about 4 minutes I notice that the sweet smell changed to a more pastry type smell… the sweet smell was subtle.. and now the tea was more creamy, I could really smell the tart in this, coming from this cup, I could detect a little bit of almond and cherry in this, plus the little almond pieces in this tea are such a perfect thing for it..
taking my first sip… the tea is more of a reddy brown than golden, and I was so blown away about the texture, which was the first thing I noticed.. I have never before tried a tea that was as smooth as this!! This even comes up to ‘Paris’ – Harney & Sons consistency!! I was very shocked because at such an affordable price I wasn’t expecting such a tea to be like this!!! The taste – In my personal opinion, I don’t like hugely sweet teas, and I was so relieved to know that this tea doesnt taste like what it smells like from the bag, the taste is a rich creamy, almond, cherry flavour… which I can easily tell that this IS marzipan tea! I gave the tea to my friends and they knew exactly this had to be a marzipan tea, so I’m glad that when you drink it, you know that it is marzipan tea. The empty cup smells like bakewell tarts, the sweetness has come back again so maybe while its hot the creamy pastry smell comes out more… My advice is to try it on its own.. I genuinely think that no milk or sugar is needed,,, I will be trying this tea out again with milk to see if this helps with the creamy smoothness of this.. If anyone loves sweet tea, then go for the sugar but for me.. it’s my perfect sweet creamy tea, I will be buying atleast 5 bags of this… only because it’s a limited edition from christmas,, and they are selling that last few bags, so I need to get down there quick before they go!!!
