1164 Tasting Notes
This is a tea that MissB was apparently trying to get rid of, because I find myself with almost 100g of it. :D Thank you. Now… what do I do with it all?
It’s interesting. Definitely rooibos. Smells a little sweet and fruity. I got a rhubarb piece in my scoop, which may have made it a little tart. I know that panna cotta is a set dairy dessert thing. I don’t really get any “cream” or “milk” flavour from this, but it is pretty smooth.
Definitely rooibos. Definitely not plain rooibos.
I don’t think it’s terrible, but it isn’t rhubarb-y enough for me. I’m curious how this will cold brew up. Certain People will be getting some in their slow packages, but most I know don’t seem to love rooibos.
Ooh yeah, I like this one! Tastes a lot like Blueberry Jam, only the sweetness is coming from the candied pineapple instead of gross added stevia.
Depending on how well it does as a cold brew, I might get a tin. Maybe. I mean, I’m up to 258 now (just the non-samples are in Steepster) and there’s INCOMING from 4 people. So. Uhh. Hmm.
This is the first tea I decided to try out of the package MissB was holding for me (OMG! Thank you SO MUCH. I’m now at 258 from 219. :) ).
It… could be more. It’s actually pretty good, but it’s not quite what I was hoping for. There’s ginger, there’s rich black tea, but there’s hardly any smoke and there’s no molasses. I guess the “smoke” would be the slight campfire aftertaste. And by campfire aftertaste, I mean a flavour like when you’re slowly roasting marshmallows but then you accidentally set it on fire, so it’s delightful and melty and roasted, but there’s a bit of char as well, that usually tastes mildly yet distinctly of pine or cedar. THAT kind of campfire aftertaste.
So. I think I will be drying some ginger to add to the tea, I’ll also be mixing in some marshmallow root (IDK, I just feel it’s necessary), a few cracked peppercorns, and some Russian Caravan. I’ll probably end up having it with molasses as well, unless I decide to really go too far and dry some molasses and grind it up to add to the tea.
I’ll probably decide to go too far. :)
(1.5 tsp for ~11 oz)
I ended up getting 50g of this. It’s good. I really like it.
Yes, it’s rooibos and no, you can’t pretend it’s not.
The almond flavouring is definitely flavouring, but in the good way. Like if I steeped this up with cacao it might resemble chocolate covered marzipan bars. The cheap ones you can get around Christmas.
Hmm. I steeped this like a normal tea and I think that was a mistake.
It’s not good like this. Tastes like dirt and mate. With a little spice on the side. And it’s making my tongue numb.
I hoped I’d like this, but it’s a no for me.
Thank you for the sample, Veronica. I do appreciate it! This is definitely one I was looking at purchasing.
Unsweetened almond milk, hemp matcha, 1/2 tsp sugar.
Whisked up for ages because of lumps. I think I finally managed to get most of them out. I might need a frother, just because my Mad Whisking Skillz are disintegrating.
It’s pretty nice. Just… nutty. A little green. I don’t think I’d buy it, though. I prefer the fruity flavours. Or caramel. Thanks, CrowKettle! I’ve finally finished all the samples you gave me. :)
