701 Tasting Notes
This one smells like cinnamon and chocolate. Slightly more like cinnamon than chocolate but still delicious.
This is an interesting taste. It’s definitely both cinnamon and chocolate. And something reminding me ever so slightly of eggnog. I may try this as a latte. It’s pretty good, I’m not so sure it’s permanent collection good though. I’ll have to think about it some more as I sip away.
Update: This one didn’t wow me, but it was good. I felt I could make it better somehow so that it can be upgraded. Feels like there’s some potential there. So now I’m trying it as a latte :)
And also, I’m halfway through reading a ridiculously long psychology journal article (deathly boring). Progress!
Well it’s certainly much heartier this way – less like tea haha. But the flavour makes it seem less like tea to begin with. I think next time I’ll add a wee bit more milk since I guessed (and it was barely any) to make a real latte. There’s hope for this one yet!
OMG Dexter season 7 finale just blew my mind. I can’t wait for season 8. June 30. The countdown is on.
I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for this tea to be available in store. Finally! It smells pretty good. Very juicy fruity dry and slightly diminished steeped. I’ve never tried a tea with bamboo so I’m quite excited.
That has a fruity taste I wasn’t expecting. Tastes just like the dry smell. That diminished scent after steeping tricked me! There’s a lovely sweetness that kicks in at the end of the sip. It took me by surprise. Bamboozled, you were worth the wait. This will be upgraded to the permanent collection.
Update: Resteep just as delicious. Excellent.
Update February 17/13: Also delicious chilled. And I scored a whole tin at the south store today. The drive was worth it haha.
I was really excited about this because I LOVE watermelon. Love it. I’m finding that this isn’t a true watermelon taste though. It’s not bad, just not what I was expecting.
I’ll enjoy the rest of my stash but I don’t think I’ll re-purchase.
On a good note, I’m on the Dexter season finale for season 6. Only one season left to catch up on after this!
Thank you KittyLovesTea for yet another awesome tea sample :)
The smell for this one is a little bizarre. There’s chocolate in the scent somewhere though.
Perhaps chocolate teas just aren’t for me. This one is well done, but it’s not my favourite by any means. I’m really enjoying the white tea base but not so much the chocolate.
Thanks to KittyLovesTea for this one!
The fiance just got home and decided he wanted to test this one out so I guess I will too.
Hopefully the coconut will redeem the rooibos. I can still taste that bizarre flavour but the other ingredients are definitely toning it down :) This is one I can survive!
Perhaps the 5 minute steep time is the trick to these rooibos teas. Hmm. I’ll have to conduct an experiment.
Thanks KittyLovesTea for this sample! The moment I saw it pop up on my feed I wanted to try it. I was so excited then, realizing they only sipped with the UK I was disappointed. However, you were awesome enough to send me some, so I’m happy once again haha.
Also I’m on my last chapter of studying for my exam tomorrow!
Smells delicious, like an almond sweet but not overwhelmingly so.
Oh yes this one is a lovely balance of almond and tea. It’s actually really nicely done. The almond is there but not in-your-face, and the tea is also there but not overpowering the almond. I may have to set up some sort of agreement to have this one on hand (or relocate to the UK)!
Update: 2nd steep slightly less flavour, still tasty.
