6768 Tasting Notes
LiberTEAS sent this my way the last time she sent me a box of goodies! She told me this was going to be good and it IS…Woot!!!
This is black tea and coconut tasting indeed. It’s fairly creamy and YES you can taste the coconut more the more it cools for a few mins. When’s it super hot there is a cookie-likeness but it seems to fade as it cools and is replaced with more coconut taste!
I want to thank LiberTEAS for sending this one my way! Thanks, girl!!! :)
This isn’t much for scent but the color is a nice medium-dark brown with reddish hues. This is a solid black tea. A great ‘go-to’ or one to have in anyone’s tea cabinet…if you like black tea.
It’s a good medium strength with a tad of a peppery taste trying to hide in there as well!
Well, I randomly grabbed 2 teas from my ‘new pile’ and they were both flavored Rooibos…I need some Black tea this morning FIRST…so the 3rd one I grabbed was this little gem. It had both. The best of both worlds!? Well, let’s see…
Post infusion aroma smells like Rooibos, Black Tea, a little Spice…and even a little vanilla – eventho it doesn’t say in the ingredients that there is any vanilla in here but that is what I am sniffing…hum….anyhow…
The rooibos gives a natural sweetness to the black tea and it works out very nicely. The spice isn’t overly spicy and I really like that about this blend! The more I sip the more I like. This is very comforting and pleasant. This is a tasty tea, indeed!
The dry leaf mixture smells JUST LIKE York Peppermint Patties!!!!!!!! Woooooo! Post Infusion smells like Black Tea, Peppermint, Cream. This ‘brews up’ quick and dark! This tastes like black tea, mint, and vanilla. Altho I must say I LOVE the out-of the-bag aroma better than the actual taste…the taste isn’t bad either! Actually the more I sip the more I like.
Might tried ICED and might try some of other experiments! :P
Post infusion this is a very weird grey-ish brown color…almost like muddy or cloudy water…a water puddle…
I was afraid because of the hibiscus….but there’s isn’t too much in there, thankfully.
I think it’s more floral tasting with a fruity-sweet sidekick more than anything. It’s a more mellow tasting Compass Tea – pretty pleasant overall. I must say this one was a nice surprise. I don’t know if I would buy-out-the stock if I were to see it on a shelf – but I would suggest trying it if you were given the opportunity!
I’m surprised I am the first to log this one, too!
Dry leaves somewhat smell like Cocoa. Yum.
Post infusion liquid smell is slightly smokey or maybe roasted would be a better fit. Almost like roasted pumpkin seeds, perhaps.
It tastes roasted and a bit like nuts or seeds. I will agree that the end of the sip and after taste are sweet…this amazes me! It’s like a HAPPY ENDING tea. YAY!
