196 Tasting Notes
Found this in my parents cupboard this morning and thought it smelled amazing. I didn’t follow the directions on the can. I made it the way I typically make chai. Added a bit of milk and sugar and it is wonderfully spicy and delightful. Already looking forward to my second cup.
I went to Ikea today with my parents. We stopped for a quick 99 cent breakfast and I ordered a 75 cent tea. Their only option was this and it tasted good. Not sure why Lipton gets such a bad rating. It’s everything I expected. Simply bagged black tea. Should we expect more? 75 cent unlimited refill tea should taste this way :)
Seeing that Della Terra has their Eight Candles tea 40% off today has me ordering more. That tea rocks my socks.
Time to kick back and watch It’s a Wonderful Life.
My third time drinking this tea and still no sign of coconut or chocolate. I guess I should give up trying to taste those 2 flavors and accept this as an almond tea. I really wanted to love it like I do Eight Candles and Candy Cane.
In other news, IT’S THURSDAY. And in my world of working on Sundays means it’s my last workday of the week. Yay!! On to Ikea and sewing projects this weekend.
It’s been a long day. A busy and good long day. I was hoping for caramel goodness. This tea let me down. It promised caramel goodness but only supplied rooibos. It tastes much the same as my red rooibos, so not sure where the caramel went. Oh well. Can’t win them all. I’ll be passing the rest of this sample on to a friend.
Another yummy tea to share. Sharing this while watching Vampire Diaries = great way to spend the evening.
Sharing tea with a friend is the best. She likes it :)
I love jasmine tea. Another wonderful sample from Nicole. The jasmine is a bit on the strong side. Next time I make it, I plan to steep for a shorter time and see if that a difference. I don’t feel like I could give it a fair rating right now. I’m going to wait for the next try :)
Thank you Nicole for this generous sample :)
A delicious dessert sort of tea. I added milk and a touch of sugar to make it extra creamy and awesome this morning. I can really taste the strawberry ice cream in a sort of Neapolitan mix of flavors. Definitely enjoyable for me :)
Have you ever had that orange fluffy dessert that someone always brings to a potluck? That was what this tasted like only if it were made with lemon instead. Wow! Another A+ for rooibos tea. I really enjoy how the lemongrass and rooibos complement each other. I would never have guessed. Everyday my tea horizons expand. I’m loving it!
A nice change from the many flavored teas I’ve been drinking lately. I don’t have much experience with white tea, but this has a nice crisp light flavor. I’m really struggling to define the taste, but I really like it. I’ll update if I can find a way to be more articulate :)
