550 Tasting Notes
It is amazing that when I say I’m not going to drink a type of tea again, I try it again for good measure. It still didn’t taste like anything but I prepared it with milk. It made a pretty good plain milk tea. Something to have when you want something simple. Rating boost.
This was a little disappointing. It didn’t taste like much to me. It was nice and warm but it made the back of my throat dry. It was also a little bitter so I sweetened it with a little sweet red grape juice. Just a couple of drops out of my biggest grape.
I don’t think I’ll drink this again because it just didn’t taste like much.
I had two cups of this for dinner. I had them in a school coffee mug which is a little smaller than my normal mug so it was strong. The first one I had plain and the second one I had with some milk. The milk mellowed out the flavors but drinking it strong was an interesting experience.
This was one of the teas that my friend gave me. I actually made it for breakfast this time. I tried a few sips of it plain and it was nice. It was a stronger flavor but the flavor did not punch you in the face. It was more of a “hey, it’s time to wake up now” buzz.
I put a little bit of milk in it, just enough to turn the tea from a nice rich brown to a nice toffee color. The milk let the flavors mix better and made for a smoother cup.
Overall, I really like this tea and I wish I had more of it to drink.
I just steeped this as my cuppa before bed. My friend went to the tea plantation this summer and brought me back some samples.
It smells nice and peachy. This is my first peach tea so I’m not sure if I’ll like it. It is just hot and plain right now. Something tells me that I should have let this steep for much longer than I did. It doesn’t taste like much but I’m not sure if it is just because I have a bigger mug or not.
It isn’t bad but I was expecting a stronger flavor. A few more sips later and I have decided that the tea is very light and almost buttery. It leaves my throat a little try but it isn’t unpleasant. Maybe if I had more fruit teas, I would like this more.
My cafeteria is running out of tea. I had a choice between this tea and some green tea. Since I didn’t really want green tea, I went with this.
The first glass I had tasted like pumpkin. I think I was impatient and I didn’t let it steep for very long. I think it was more like two and a half minutes than my usual four. And I put some normal milk in it. It reminded me less of gingerbread and more of pumpkin pie.
Then my friend came down to eat with me and I had a second cup. I decided to experiment a little. I let it steep longer (it had a stronger flavor so I must have steeped it around four minutes this time). Then I put chocolate milk in it. It was fantastic! It was this nice spicy chocolate flavor. It was just a little sweet but it didn’t overpower the tea. I was so glad I had this version at the end of my meal because it tasted more like a dessert tea to me this time. I might have to try putting a little bit of chocolate milk in the rest of my teas and see what it does to them.
