2071 Tasting Notes
Ha, I love trying different EGs, but I have to echo what other people mentioned and say that this one tastes like dirt. I also taste a pretty decent blueberry. I think adding almond milk helped this taste like drinkable dirt…but still not desirable. Thanks for giving me the chance to try this, Cameron B!
Well I don’t usually like smoky teas, but I figured I should try this anyway. This is smoky and meaty, but maybe they chose a milder one to be enjoyable to a general tourist palate because I really don’t mind this as much as every smoky tea I’ve ever tried. Of course I diluted this heavily with milk and sugar, but I found this meaty in a comforting and not overbearing way at all. I liked it even more with almond milk. It was just so hearty.
This was super smooth without any bitterness. I’m actually not exactly sure how to describe it since it’s different from the teas I usually drink. There is a bit of an emptiness that I start to notice after a while. On my second and third cups of this, I enjoyed it more. It became desserty and almost biscuity.
I was in Boston recently, and I had to visit Abigail’s Tea Room, which was attached to the Boston Tea Party Museum. The museum tour was a little too expensive, but I spent a lovely hour in the tea room sampling the tea types thrown overboard during the Boston Tea Party. It was only $4 for an unlimited supply of the five teas, plus sugar and milk options. I drank way more tea than was reasonable, but it was really fun.
I’m not much of a plain green tea person, but I enjoyed this! It was served hot, which isn’t how I usually drink my green teas. Sweetened a little, it was pleasant, a little bitter, but mostly smooth.
This is a really nice tea. It tastes super floral, but in a way that works. The base is hearty despite being a decaf tea. The cream flavoring is strong and very complementary to the floral flavors. I enjoy this one sweetened with milk. It’s so creamy it sometimes doesn’t even need milk! The resteep tastes really good as well.
The scent and taste both strongly remind me of a 52teas blend from maybe 2018? It’s so familiar, and quite tasty as well. I’d say it does lean more ground ginger than gingersnap specifically, but the base it’s on is pretty nice. It turns out a little straightforward, but I’m enjoying it. The resteep tastes super good as well.
