1144 Tasting Notes
Holy mackerel, is this another amazing tea from DAVIDs this summer. I grabbed 20g and it was gone in a flash… 4 tsp in 12 oz. boiling water, steeped three to five minutes, poured over ice… it’s pure heaven in a glass. Went to go grab a ton more yesterday with my 15% off, and they’re temporarily (yay, it’s coming back!) sold out. Oh, and leave it unsweetened… it’s freakishly sweet as-is.
Flavors: Candied Apple, Thick
This really is a thick, lovely coffee substitute. Having said that, drinking it as an iced tea? Underleaf it considerably. I’d normally use 4 tsp of tea for my large iced cups, but I used 3 tsp here and it was still too much.
Flavors: Caramel, Coffee, Roasted, Thick
Cold steeped overnight, then made into iced tea this morning. I’ve guzzled it, it’s just so darn good. I do notice more apple than anything though when I make it this way, as a long, cold, second steep.
Flavors: Apple, Coconut, Pineapple
Damn you Sil for suggesting this when it came out. I’ve gone through 350g of this so far (so wish I was joking!) as both hot and iced, although right now it’s mostly just iced. Needs no sweetener, and it really is an amazing pina colada tea with a hint of spices, like spiced rum. I want to try and make this as a slushy, rum pina colada cocktail… but I drink it too fast to get that far.
Flavors: Coconut, Hibiscus, Pineapple, Sweet
I ran out, and eventually bought $4.32 more of it, which works out to about 100g. Score! Made it iced today, and while I like it better hot, it’s still damn tasty tea. Sweet anise today mostly, with some hints of sasparilla.
Flavors: Anise, Root Beer, Smooth
