256 Tasting Notes
This was pretty yummy, all that’s left of my sample… I ate it with my breakfast custard long John and it was so good with it. Very vanilla and smooth, and like rum candy but not in that too sweet way. Definitely makes up for the disappointing Goji Pop cup I had first. I thought it could be the water making the Goji Pop taste metallicky but the Buttered Rum came out well. This goes on my list of potential teas to buy next order.
This was not really as good as I thought it’d be though maybe it’d be a different story cold brewed. It had a tartness and also a metallic tang that was unpleasant. There’s still enough for like one cup in the tin.
I finished up this last of my little bit I ordered from Verdant Tea as a iced tea. It was really good – very cool and refreshing. If I was feeling under the weather this would be the tea I would want on hand.
I got this in a swap with Stephanie (Thanks :D)
It’s a good tea, but I’m glad I got this in a swap just to try it out. I don’t think I’ll buy a whole of it. There’s just something that I don’t quite like.. I think it’s the floral note in the smell and taste. It’s very small part so it’s not so bad I hate the tea, it just pings the wrong way. Otherwise, the pineapple tastes and smells like the dried pineapple rings with the crust of sugar all around it. There is a little tartness which I think adds to the pineapple-ness.
This tea smells really chocolatey dry and I was happy to see bits of chocolate too. It tasted ok, kind of like dark chocolate and also fruit. I totally burnt my tongue so I have enough to try another cup later which maybe I’ll like it more sans injury :p
This was very tasty. I got a cherry syrup taste upon first tiny sip but not in an overpowering way. There is that roasty toasty genmaicha tea taste backing it. I like this one more than the browncoat genmaicha I had before from 52teas. I’m finishing up my thermos and kind of wishing I had more leaf to brew up some more.
It’s so peachy! I took this iced to work today, and was sad when I drank it all. It’s not too strong a fruit taste like when I’m drinking my Teavana teas, and the green tea base is noticeable but not too strong.
A little packet from the Christmas tea set thing… it is a weird tasting tea. It’s fruity and sweet in a generic way and oddly… creamy? Not something I’m liking as an iced tea. I was hoping for stronger ginger/lemon taste. I’m not buying the christmas days set from Teavana next year no matter how discounted. I haven’t really like any so far.
