14 Tasting Notes
As soon as I smelled this it reminded me of spermint toothpaste and something else. Then I tasted it and it reminded me of spermint toothpaste and something else…lol I can’t say that was a good thing. I see from the ingredients that it has marshmallow, but I don’t think that is what I was tasting. I may give this another shot, just because I see so many people enjoyed it and I feel like I am missing something…
I had such high hopes with a name like double chocolate decadence…but alas, the name was more appealing than the tea. For me, it just didn’t have that chocolate wow factor, too bitter, not enough chocolate. I ended up adding some sugar which helped, but still it was just okay for me.
For some reason I kept putting off trying this tea. I don’t know why…maybe because I have been drinking more of the “holiday season” teas and this bag just wasn’t striking my fancy. Anyway, last night I decided to try this… AND NOW EVERYTHING IS RIGHT IN THE WORLD! Okay, maybe a slight bit of exaggeration, but I was really, really impressed with this tea. I had two cups last night and started my day with it as well. The tea is fragrant, floral and fruity and it carries right over into the flavor. It doesn’t need anything added to make it enjoyable. Love it as is!
I love pumpkin, I love cheesecake…but I only had a slight fondness for this tea. I think part of the “lacking in the affection department” was because in my mind I was thinking of an epic dessert in a cup and while the aroma was nutmeggy and spicy, it was missing the pumpkin—and the cheesecake!
This tea was a combination of things unknown to me, making me feel slightly uncultured…bergamot? shu mei? Perhaps possible contenders for future baby names? (Em, don’t choke on your tea!) :)
Not knowing what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised at this new discovery. The flavor was fresh, slightly sweet and lightly fruity and just really pleasant. I liked it!
This tea is a wonderful combination of “stuff”…it smells like a spicy potpourri and, admittedly, I have kept the used bag, dried it out and used it as such. :)
I am not a black licorice lover, but had I not read the flavoring on the box I would not have realized this tea had it. The tea has such a pleasant spicy, slightly sweet taste with just a hint of mint that it really doesn’t need a sweetener.
This is one of the first teas that I fell in love with and it still brings me much joy! :)
I had wonderful company to share this tea with which made the whole experience even more enjoyable! First, most of our group was not over thrilled with the fact that this was a “fruit” tea. I insisted to the naysayers to keep an open mind…:)
I actually enjoyed the initial aroma, a cross between warm banana bread and juicy fruit gum. I have to say, the tea was a very pleasant surprise! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the tea was creamy, sweet and really good. I would say the banana was the predominant flavor with just a slight “tang” of maybe the pineapple. Even if you you are not a fruit tea lover, I beg you to give this a chance. It just might surprise you…
I wish I could have another cup, but alas there is no more! Sigh.
