75 Tasting Notes
I tried this yesterday for the first time and I’m drinking it again tonight. It has a nice butterscotch flavor that I am really enjoying, but it does not obliterate the underlying malty black tea (not too strong). And how does Frank get a subtle hint of rum flavor in there? Wow! I’m hoping this one will get me through all the work I have to do tonight. It’s making me crave a Werther’s.
Alright, I’m officially jumping on the Red Leaf Tea matcha bandwagon. I ordered this and strawberries and cream flavors in robust to start my journey and both are winners for me. I have only tried this as a latte and as I have perfected my technique making it, it has become more and more delectable. Like a yummy caramel milkshake with a subtle vegetal undertone from the matcha. Which flavors should I try next?
It is a perfect spring day: 70 degrees and sunny. The kids are playing water games with friends outside. I am sitting outside feeling the delicious breeze and sipping on a yummy iced cup of this tea. I haven’t had it hot yet, but it is delicious iced. I can really taste the pineapple and coconut. There’s a creaminess there that may come from the honeybush. Yummy!
So, I am wondering if I just don’t get this tea. I don’t really taste cake or red velvet cake. I added a tsp of sugar and what it really tastes like to me is the Thai tea served in Thai restaurants. I can’t get past that thought to taste the more subtle parts of the flavor. I think I need to try this again and steep it for less time to give a chance to be what it is supposed to be.
