686 Tasting Notes
I am wholly confused that this tea says “black tea” as the tea type, yet in the ingredients it says “organic white tea leaves”, and in the description it mentions “red tea base” (which, as far as I know, is a type of black tea?)
Regardless of that, this is decent. It’s definitely a nice quality tea, but the flowery aspect isn’t really doing it for me. It isn’t repulsive, as I find most floral teas, but it just doesn’t tickle my fancy either. I’ll have to pay more attention to see if I can get any citrus, but it certainly isn’t jumping out at me.

Cavo sent such a generous amount of this I added it to my cupboard haha!
I love the scent of this one. So delightful. I also like how it’s sweet, but not artificially so. I can handle a lot more sweetness when it’s natural. This tea I find oddly soothing, in a dessert way. I’m taking a short break from cue cards to watch an episode of Flipping Out. Such an awesome show.
I was also feeling a little crazy tonight, and put some in the fridge to cold brew.
This is actually a decent rooibos. I’m always wary of rooibos, since I generally do not enjoy it at all. With the one exception of Fauchon’s L’Automne. Sigh.
The rooibos base here doesn’t overtake the other ingredients completely, which is great. The apple is apparent, though I’m not so sure about the pistachio or strudel aspect. There is something dimming the apple a bit so those things are there, just not distinguishable to me. Overall, an enjoyable cup, especially for a rooibos.

Having this one again tonight. So tasty. There seems to be two types of pumpkin teas – one of which I love, like this, and one which I feel meh about, which I find is most others.

I am planning/procrastinating on what to do first. I have a lot to do for school but zero motivation. I have 4 exams in a row next week – so Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and then 2 the following week. Even knowing this, I can’t bring myself to study. Maybe I need more of a motivational tea for my next cup.
I’m such a sucker for banana chocolate. I have this thing where I despise fruit and chocolate together, with this one exception.
This is my morning cup with my breakfast of coconut pineapple loaf, plain yogurt with honey, and coconut water. I have a mango I should cut up, but perhaps that will be for lunch.
This tea is delightful. There are lots of floating bits, but it’s so tasty I don’t mind. The chocolate is apparent and the banana less so, but still there. I wouldn’t mind having a tin of this around for a herbal option. Though I think the closest Tea Desire is close to a 45 minute drive away. This city needs to grow up, not out.
Thanks Roswell Strange!
