220 Tasting Notes
I received this in a TTB that I organized long ago on another site. It was a home blend by one of the participants, made to replace one of their favorite teas when it was discontinued. I picked it for my morning class tea, as I was still craving something sweet. I definitely get the sweet strawberry flavor, its very smooth and creamy. However, I’m getting more of a chocolate flavor than a vanilla flavor. Its still very good, just not quite what I was expecting.
Drank this yesterday evening. I was needing a caffeine boost, and was craving a sweet chocolatey tea. This always smells so delicious steeping up. However, I accidentally let this go longer than I meant, and it got a bit bitter. The chocolate was still there but I wasn’t getting any orange. It was completely my fault, but I would recommend not going past four minutes with this one.
Uh-oh. This smelled a bit soapy before I steeped it. I’ve heard stories about coconut going bad, and now I’m worried to drink this! Of course, I just showered, so it could also be that..
After steeping, it still smells of that delicious bakey coconuty smell that I was expecting. Maybe it hasn’t gone bad!
Hmm, so there’s definitely not as much taste, most likely because I’ve had this for a while, but it doesn’t taste bad. I’ll have to finish the rest of this off quickly just in case!
I received this in an exchange with wheezeybee, thanks! I really love smoky teas, which seem to be something that most people feel very strongly about, either love or hats. I needed something yesterday evening to keep me going through studying. This seemed perfect! I don’t remember much about it now, but I do know that I enjoyed it!
Study study study! This class is keeping me busy and tea is keeping me going. I have a couple of bags of this that I haven’t tried, and I was looking for something to brew up quick so I could get back to studying. I added some milk to it, and I really liked it! A nice spicy chai. Probably one of my more favorite of the bagged chais that I have tried. Even better than some weak loose leaf chais honestly.
