205 Tasting Notes
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.
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 :)
The tea itself is a little bitter, but so is dark chocolate, so I think it works. I added milk and a bit of sugar and it is delicious. I always find hot chocolate sickeningly sweet, so this is a fantastic alternative for nights when you want something sweet and chocolate-y or days when you need a pick-me-up.
