My first time buying coconut butter because I just wanted to see what it tasted like. It tastes absolutely wonderful with just a touch of sweetness. While I have no qualms with this brand just bear in mind that the oil and coconut solids tend to separate. The bottom gets rock hard and you'll need some strength to stir everything together. It's also gritty in texture, so don't expect it to be velvety smooth. It tastes great off the spoon and dipped into but I haven't quite figured out how to use this as a flavor enhancer. It's subtle taste seems to get lost in recipes. Possibly works well as an oil/paenut butter subsitute in recipes though.

Good for dry skin

This soap is an olive green and has a rather musty smell to it. It's also actually a lot smaller than I'd expected. I've only just received it and used it once so far. The smell is undiscernible in the shower and you won't smell of it. It lathers well and I loved how it left my skin squeaky clean but WITHOUT THE DRYNESS. This is the second natural soap I've used next to Dr Bronner's and I found the latter really drying and still quite harsh on my skin. This soap wasn't like that at all and I'm glad I'm able to enjoy using natural products that also feel good on my skin. The only qualm I have is that it is rather costly. I might try using other natural soaps.

A good default seed butter esp if you like the taste of sunflower seeds!

Distinct sunflower seed smell and taste. A little gritty and not entirely smooth. The oils do separate so you'll have to give this a good stir everytime you open the jar. I have no qualms about this product, its a relatively good seed butter for everyday consumption.

I bought this together with Very Dark Chocolate bar. This one tastes the same except its less sweet. People often complain about chocolate being somewhat unpalatable at higher percentages but this was no less unpleasant compared to the 71% bar (this one is 80). The sourish notes also tend to be more discernible in this bar. All in all, if you prefer a bar thats less sweet go for this one. If not, go for the Very Dark bar.

Works as a alternative sweetener

The first time I tasted it straight (just to see what its like) I was pretty put off by the strong rice-y aftertaste. It's sweetness is also very very mild. I suppose the extra flavor that comes with the rice syrup boosts the flvor profile of whatever you put it into so you may be less inclined to need so much sweetness. I'd say it works great as a sweetener in small amounts. Say to sweeten drinks or sauces and dressings. In large amounts it would most likely change the taste of your final product. I've used it to make coconut oil chocolates which was basically coconut oil, cocoa powder and brown rice syrup. It produced an intensely flavored chocolate that's not too sweet and the rice taste wasn't discernible too. I would definitely use this in place of refined sugar but flavor-wise I think I prefer palm/coconut sugar.

Love the taste but slightly costly

As do a lot of other tahini brands, this really separates and the bottom gets stuck to the jar. Taste is really smooth and perhaps the least bitter/best tasting I've had so far comparing with 2 other brands. I did wonder or suspect however (despite the only ingredient used being sesame seeds), whether the lack of bitterness was due to there being more neutral tasting oil added to the sesame paste. For the price though, I think I would stick with a local organic brand that costs less and imo separates less.

Spicy and sweet. Satisfying taste.

Used to enjoy conventional gochujang but had trouble finding one that doesn't contain HFCS after being aware that most gochujang seems to contain it. Delighted with the taste of Annie Chun's - good strong flavor with plenty of kick from the red pepper. It's also sweet from the brown sugar. Add a little more sweetener and stir in toasted sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds for delicious sauce for Bibimbap.

Great taste for the price! / Use code BLC339 for $5 or $10 off for purchases less than $40 or more!

I am more than satisfied with the quality of this rooibos tea considering the price. The rooibos smell is strong and fresh when I open the bag inside and it makes a cup of aromatic tea. After steeping, the color of the tea is very red which tells me it is potent and of good quality. Would buy the larger box next time.

Delicious coconut flavor!

Really aromatic which probably shows that it is a good quality oil. Good for all purposes - I've used it for cooking, in drinks, for rubbing on my skin. The smell is just really delicious.

Yummy roasty flavor similar to Oolong

Posted on Jul 06, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I really liked this. Reminded me very much of Oolong tea. The tea comes in the form of little dry twigs which you boil in water for about 5 minutes so it does require a bit of preparation compared to the kinds that you steep in hot water. For the price I would buy this again and again.

Good, dark

A good quality dark chocolate. It tastes almost too dark for enjoyment at first but the taste mellows out for a rich chocolatey experience. This is the only brand I've managed to find that's both organic and fairtrade. It's good to be able to enjoy chocolate without worrying about the slave trade.

Aromatic straight out of the packaging / Use code BLC339 for $5 or $10 off for purchases less than $40 or more!

Had a really nice smell when I opened the sample. Also made an aromatic cup of tea. Have no qualms with the taste but I notice to my dismay some additives - 'natural flavor' and stevia. I rather buy tea without because good tea shouldn't require such add ins. I will opt to get the loose rooibos tea leaves in bulk on this site rather than the tea bags next time. I like the Port Trading brand.
