1734 Tasting Notes
Drank this when I was out earlier and found it reasonably enjoyable. The drink wasn’t too sweet like how Starbuck’s makes some of their drinks and the rooibos base made a surprsingly creamy-tasting latte.
I was a bit annoyed that they didn’t bother to take the tea bag out of the cup though. I’m not sure if you can overbrew rooibos – but still!
This tastes quite sweet to me tonight for some reason. This is another tea that would probably be delicious iced – in fact I might do just that with the second steeping.
And Cynthia is right, this tea is out of stock and I’m more than half-finished the sample tin I got with my order. is a sad panda :(
Steeped for 2.5 minutes and added skim milk.
The smell might be BBQ-y but the taste is ever so faintly that of a campfire; there’s a trace of ash and smoke and hot embers in each sip. It’s not really unpleasent, just sort of intriguing, even if I’m not sure if I like it or not.
I grabbed the wrong teabag this morning so I didn’t intend to drink this. One thing I can say in its favour is that it’s very hard to scald this green tea since I used boiling water (I thought it was a black tea) and steeped it for quite awhile. Or it could just be the sourness of the hibiscus is disguising any bitterness
Steeped for 3 min in less-than-boiling water.
This is a light, gentle, and slightly sweet white tea with the bitter citrus taste of bergamot. Bergamot flavouring is about the only time I can stand bitterness in my tea. In this one it’s enough to give the tea some bite, but it isn’t the punch in the face you can get with some earl greys.
