253 Tasting Notes
Since I started a new Stargate SG-1 DVD, I needed some tea. I like having tea with my shows.
This tea smells like tootsie rolls (more so dry). Not sure why. The flavour is sorta generally sweet, with a little caramel. Nothing in it makes me think of praline. I might have to try with vanilla or vanilla next.
This is a blend of my three favourite Adagio teas.
The aroma makes me think of marzipan with caramel sauce and orange zest. I do so enjoy the flavour of their almond rooibos. It pairs nicely with the sweetness in the caramel, and hints of citrus.
I made this blend after liking the peach and apricot red bush teas.
My personal stash has more vanilla (rooibos) added. The aroma is mostly peach. And a bit of apricot, with a hint of vanilla. That is also really close to the flavour. Being also most strongly peach. It makes for a sweet evening or dessert tea, if you like fruit.
This tea smells fantastic. I will probably always prefer red rooibos. Though I rather like this green rooibos. The flavour isn’t that strong, but is still sweet and creamy. I do taste the creme brulee.
Thanks to QueenOfTarts for this sample.
Tried this in store with the pineapple kona pop. This tastes like fruit juice. I like blueberries, but there were a lot of extra flavours. Maybe I would like it better iced, with less sugar.
Tried this sample in store with the blueberry bliss rooibos. The flavour reminds me of fruit juice. It might be better cold, with less sugar.
It smells a little like chocolate. Perhaps like white chocolate (which isn’t really chocolate, since it contains no cocoa solids). Anyway, flavour is mostly rooibos, with a hint of vanilla and mint.
I really shouldn’t have black tea this late. Oh well. It has that nice bergamot smell that I like. It tastes like citrus black tea. Better with a little milk, and cinnamon.
