Love the variety of flavors, a must for tealovers
I loved the variety of flavors and discovered some new favorites. Definitely a must try for inquisitive tea drinkers!
So far, we have not gone through every single one of the samples, but I wil be happy to go through the ones we have tried:
Baked Apple: -- Doesn't quite taste like apple pie, tastes more like an apple fritter. Less carmel, less 'bakery', more crisp apple.
+ Fantastic flavor profile. Long lasting, deep, complex apple and seasoning.
+ Steeps quickly in under 2 minutes.
+ Tastes well cold
+ doesn't stand up well to a second steeping
Birds of Paradise: Soothing, sweet, fantastic flavor tea.
+ Very smooth and sweet hot tea
+ Makes an even better iced tea
+ Can take a second steeping if you steep longer
+ May be too sweet for some people
Backpack: not tried it
Buddha Moon: not tried it
Pumpkin Chai: not tried it
Chocolate Pineapple Coconut: Good all around flavor, but weak pineapple.
+ Handles multiple steepings. Second+ steepings coconut comes out more but chocolate muted
+ Smooth flavor overall and a good daily drinking tea
+ The flavor profile good overall but lacking anything special
+ The roasted pinapple tea is a much nicer pineapple tea profile
+ The chocolate tea is a much nicer chocolate tea profile
+ Second (and third) steepings bring out different flavors but becomes bitter
Pumpkin Spice Latte,: Pumpkin pie in a cup. Delicious
+ Fantastic tea. Best pumpkin tea I have had.
+ stands up very well to multiple steepings
+ not as fattening as grandmother's pumpkin pie
+ Multiple steepings get on the bitter side so watch steep times
+ may need to add honey to sweeten up further steepings
Autumn Haze: Maple pancakes for the win
+ Exceedingly well done maple taste. Sweet, smooth, relaxing.
+ Tastes as if you poured maple syrup into your cup. Fantastic.
+ No sweetner needed. And the flavor lasts through multiple steepings.
I'm so glad I bought the fall sampler! I'm probably 2/3 of the way through the flavors and while I have some favorites, they've all been enjoyable. The Raspberry Brownie is decadent and I love both the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie and the Pumpkin Whoopie Pie (I don't even know what a Whoopie Pie is). I wasn't sure I was going to like Bonfire because there is A LOT going on, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's very, very good.
This is a fantastic sampler. The pumpkin flavors are delicious. My only complaint is the bonfire one. Smells like the real thing, but too smoky of a flavor for my taste. But great price, arrive quickly.
