121 Tasting Notes
It is time to go into another happy place. I have a lot of work to do before I can study for another midterm next Tuesday. Luckily Monday is a holiday, however I have plans to go into San Francisco for part of that day.
Light with a hint of floral. Next month my friend is going to Paris for her honeymoon so I asked her to get me some MF teas while she was there.
So I added a little bit more leaf and got a very strong strawberry and cream flavor. I wouldn’t say this is a dessert tea, but it’s definitely sweet. I like this tea after a long day and in need of a pick me up. I should order more from DTT when I work my stash down some more.
I tried steeping this one with more leaf and this time I definitely got chocolate, but not so much peppermint. I knew this tea was more of a chocolate rooibos tea with some peppermint, but I would have really liked for this to have tasted like an andes mint. It’s still a great tea to get rid of the voice that is telling you to eat chocolate, but man I wanted more mint. :(
Picked this up during my latest run to Target and I was not expecting to enjoy this tea so much. I normally don’t like coconut so I was hoping the vanilla and lemongrass would compliment it well enough that it wouldn’t bother me. Well, I can definitely taste the base and all the flavors work in harmony of it. The base is very light and not very vegetable and has just a hint of natural sweetness.
I had some fun getting my makeup done, bought some shoes, put together a birthday dinner for my Dad and finished all my immediate homework. I deserve this cup of tea.
I doubled up on the leaf and I can get more of the raspberry and white chocolate this time. It works really well with the base – sweet and creamy playing off of the vegetable taste of the white tea. But it’s not too grassy, just enough so you’re not hit with all the natural sweetness.
