1108 Tasting Notes
Try #1 got botched by BCAA showing up to jump my (now-former) car, so now I’m drinking try #2. Dunno what I did this time around (as opposed to last time), however I’m getting chocolate juiciness with a hint of mint. It’s really delicious today!
Flavors: Candy, Chocolate, Cream, Mint, Smooth
Smooth and sweet, it’s like a lightly cherry sweetened marzipan. Is it great? Uh… well, I’ll be fine finishing off the $0.50 of this that I got. :) I think that someone who really loves cherries and almonds would find this quite delightful.
Flavors: Cherry, Marzipan, Smooth
This one surprised me. Tartness from the cranberry and smooth mint made a nice combination, one I’ve yet to find elsewhere. Was teabag, and red rooibos at that, but I think I’ll grab more the next time in Seattle, it was good enough to try again.
Flavors: Cranberry, Mint, Smooth, Tart
I was really excited when I saw, “spicy” as part of the title, because frankly, I loves me some spicy tea! (Yes Kapha from TeaGschwendner, I’m thinking of you fondly here). I grabbed a tiny bit – $0.52 worth to be exact – and now wish I’d grabbed more. Most of the heat from the spice comes from extra ginger, which I LOVE, and the rest is a pretty smooth, delicious chai.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Pepper, Spicy
I’m confused by the high rating for this on here. Although I had it a few days ago, the bitter, almost tannic coconut in this made the rest of it unpalatable for me, and I dumped it. Will have to try again, perhaps at a lower temperature, to see if I can get it to taste as lovely as it sounds.
Flavors: Burnt, Coconut, Tannin
