2040 Tasting Notes
This actually made a really tasty cold brew. I don’t usually cold brew anything but fruit tisanes due to flavour preferences.
But this was great! A little herbal, some berry flavour, and the tea base was pretty darn tasty. I think there’s blackberry leaves in here, so it was sweet and not at all weirdly tannin-y or anything like that. It was missing the vanilla flavour, but I was OK with that because I enjoyed the sage and sweet berryness.
I don’t think I’d get more of this tea (I bought it on a whim!) but I’m really glad I decided to try it cold brewed instead of hot.
I picked up a sample of this a while back at a tea meetup (WOO!), and for some reason (perhaps my general tea apathy) I hadn’t tried it yet. The sample was 3 tsp so I did the whole thing in my mug.
I quite like it! The leaves are really big, the chocolate is NOT fake at all, and the caramel is a nice accompaniment. It is a little watery, even overleafed, but I think that’s because I expect something that tastes like cocoa to be thicker.
I would definitely get more of this. I’m very happy with it. (Sorry Sil, none left for you. :( )
This is really, really floral. Jasmine, maybe? I was expecting a plain tea, as the name really doesn’t give anything away.
It’s not bad, but I don’t think I’d want more. The flowers almost give it a bitter tinge, although I only steeped 3 minutes at 195F.
Thanks for the sample, MissB, but this is one I don’t care for! :(
Cold brewed this for 24 hours, and I’ve drank almost the ENTIRE pitcher today. In fact, I’ll probably just finish it so I can make more tea for tomorrow.
Fruity juice teas are awesome. Really awesome.
(25g packet in 2L water, ~24 hours. I’ve even been diluting the prepared tea down a bit with ice, and it’s still deliciously berry-juice-y.)
I got a packet of this as part of the 4/$10 deal. And I’m actually really glad I decided to try it!
So good. It’s like candy. Fuzzy peaches, only not really peach. Definitely more floral ripe nectarine.
I’ve been steeping it at 175F for 4 minutes and putting it over ice (to make 16oz). I even brought some to work with me today!
