687 Tasting Notes
Thanks to ToiToi for sending me this sample!
This has a fascinating scent dry. I can’t quite nail down what I’m smelling. Just steeping now.
Yes it’s definitely a toasted scent I’m getting once it’s brewed. Not too sure I’m loving the scent (though compared to the Pineapple Oolong from earlier anything is welcome).
Hmm I don’t think this one is for me. The toasted taste just isn’t sitting quite right.
This smells so sweet (and slightly like an Kahlua) dry and brewed. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but something drew me to this one.
Mmm I’m enjoying this one. Kind of butterscotch-y and comforting (maybe the butterscotch taste is the mulberries?). I don’t know if I could drink this all the time but I may keep it on hand for when I do feel like a cup.
Dry it smells like someone just cut up a fresh pineapple in my house. Pineapple is not my favourite – I like it, but I don’t love it.
Steeping it smells strangely like children’s grape Tylenol. That doesn’t bring back great memories. The scent of this one is turning my stomach but I’m trying to keep an open mind as it cools.
Nope this one isn’t for me. The smell is too much. I managed one sip and it tastes as it smells.
Ah lime gelato. My newest addiction in my permanent collection. Oh sorry addition to my permanent collection.
Seriously, I have got a love affair going on with this tea – and so unexpectedly! I am thrilled they talked me into this at DavidsTea. And they said it’s even better cold (Even better?! Is that even possible?)
It’s just amazing. Not too sweet, not too sour-limey. Perfection.
This smells delicious! A sample I received in the mail today from Will Work For Tea (along with so many others!) :)
Just steeping now and I’m so excited to try this one. It’s actually my first to try from 52Teas.
And on a sidenote while this is cooling I’ve been cold brewing Blueberry Jam and Kiwi’s Big Adventure (both DavidsTea) since I left for work this morning and I can’t wait to try those ones a little later!
Yum, yum, yum :) I’m definitely getting some maple-y taste and as it cools slightly more pancake. Delicious!
Thanks again Will Work For Tea!!
So I ordered English Rose online from DavidsTea and I’ve actually never tried a floral tea so I picked up a 10g bag of this today at the store to prepare myself. It smells very pretty – just like a flower garden (what a surprise right?).
Here goes! Well it smells and tastes like a rose garden. But I’m not quite sure I’m fully sold on drinking roses. Perhaps by the end of the cup it will grow on me more :)
Omg off to DavidsTea again today to get 50g of Lime Gelato. Well they were out of Lime Gelato but I left with a bunch more 10g samples ah! So bad, yet so good haha. I’m just steeping Cookie Dough now (which yep, you guessed it – smells great dry).
Oh yum! Yep like liquid cookie dough (but not overpoweringly sweet). I’m tasting the the chocolate for sure and surprisingly whatever nut taste is in there isn’t turning me off this tea. Another great one from DavidsTea :)
Hmm which shall I try next?
