42 Tasting Notes
When I first smelled this I instantly knew I would like it because it smells just like the base my mother uses for her traditional chai. This is delish straight or with milk & sugar. I think this would taste great with some cardamom & clove added in.
I went a little insane today and added iced coffee to this instead of milk and it WORKED! woooo.
Wow, I haven’t drank this in more than a month! I think i’m getting more into spring teas so this hasn’t been reached for often but I still love it.
I’ve been drinking this for the past 3 days and have just been lazy logging. Its great, but a tad tricky to brew because the leaves are so light and I can’t accurately measure how many to put in. I really need to get a scale for these light fluffy teas! This has made its way into my morning rotation and its there to stay. :D
I don’t know how I feel about this. I only steeped this for 2 minutes and 45 seconds this time because it was too strong for me at the full 4 minutes last time but it was still very strong. I think i’m just a lemon wimp. i’ve also discovered that fruit teas dont sit well with me hot, they just taste ‘thick’ and overwhelming. I put my resteeped cup in the fridge so i’ll report back to see if this will taste good cold.
I was in the mood to drink this today. I like this because it doesn’t have a strong buttery note that some greens have & it tastes good non sweetened. Its only a sometimes tea for me though since im not really a green drinker.
First off, the leaves in this are amazing! They got HUGE when steeping. I usually don’t watch my teas steep but I just had to with this one. It also tasted great. It had a certain sweetness without adding anything in it. LOVE.
EDIT: 4th steep now and its loosing its flavour now. Thats pretty good for me though since I usually only re-steep once!
This was good. the lemon is the most pronounced flavour, I could also taste the ginger & lemongrass(?). It was a bit sour for my tastes on its own but tasted great sweetened.
Edit: I think I over-steeped the second time, I did 5 minutes instead of 4 and it was sooo sour! Note to self- don’t oversteep this.
Bleh. My younger brother lives off off iced tea so we always have 5-10 cans of Arizona iced tea around the house. Waaaaaay too sweet for my tastes. This doesnt even taste like iced tea, its straight up fruit punch.
