1610 Tasting Notes
As an eggnog latte tonight! Not as good as the blueberry or strawberry teas I’ve tried, but not too bad. Mostly I tasted eggnog, not tea!
Anyways, this tea wasn’t terrible for all that I can’t stand the overuse of coriander. (Pretty much any use is overuse in my mind!) Apple, vanilla, sweet, a bit tart from the apple pieces. Yeah, it worked. I don’t love it enough to get more, though.
Thank you Dinosara! Another caramel tea, yay! (I love caramel. And toffee. And instead of going hiking today I might make candy and bake, because why not!)
This one is not as intense smelling as the Caramel Salted Butter Oolong, which is a tiny bit disappointing. Man, that one was SO GOOD and I’m seriously sad it wasn’t a black base.
At any rate, this is a really nice caramel tea. I added a little milk, and I do like how the flavours work together. But I still prefer the oolong and also Butiki’s Caramel Vanilla Assam.
Flavors: Butter, Caramel, Salt
I found this in the bottom of a box I had received from Sil absolutely AGES ago. There was paper in the box, and I guess this slipped between the folds and I never noticed it.
This is really nice. Sweet honey and hay, some starchiness. I realize this isn’t going to be as amazing anymore since it’s been in a random box for so long, but it’s good. I’m enjoying it.
Thank you, Sil.
My last serving of this (I’m still so undecided! Do I keep some of what I was sent, or give it all to my friend?), and it’s a latte.
SO FREAKING GOOD PEOPLE OMG! These fruit teas with eggnog are AMAZING. It’s a strawberry custard pie. In a cup.
My mom’s rhubarb pie recipe is a custard pie, and she puts a little cinnamon and nutmeg in it, and honestly this strawberry tea and the blueberry rooibos, made as tea lattes, are just THE BEST. Especially since mom keeps forgetting to make the custard with gluten free flour, so I can never have her pie. (For thanksgiving I got ramekins of pumpkin and pecan pies which was rad, but then my brother got to take home 1/4 of each pie which. Really now.)
