12 Tasting Notes
So, i’m taste testing this one now. It’s quite good, even if I do say so myself. I get a creamy, sweet coconut note with just enough of that slick-y coconut texture that I like when it comes to coconut teas. And the cheesecake notes are tangy, sweet, and creamy. I get a hint of buttery crust that is enhanced with the natural nutty tones of the honeybush.
PS: I’m using a different honeybush for the honeybush blends than Frank was using. I know that there were some complaints about his honeybush … I really like the supplier that I found for honeybush. It’s organic and it has a really good flavor. Honeybush still isn’t my favorite thing out there – I certainly prefer camellia sinensis, but it’s a nice caffeine free option.
Reblend: I just brewed up a cup of this. I had to test the batch!
It’s quite yummy (if I do say so myself). The marshmallow and pineapple notes are prominent throughout the sip and the lime pops toward the finish and lingers in the aftertaste. As the tea continues to cool, the lime becomes stronger and I start to pick up on barely there hints of maraschino cherry.
I don’t know if it tastes as good as I remember that very first batch tasting way back when it first was released. But it’s really, really good. I’m quite happy with it.
