2196 Tasting Notes
As my mouth is still full of peanut butter (I have a problem, k?) the nut flavour of this is kind of lost on me… but the banana is spot on.
Thanks so much for sharing, Dexter! I’ll do another steep later and see how it is. But this tea + peanut butter = delicious.
Edit: Steep 2 is good as well. 6 minutes. Banana-y, although not super banana-y. Walnut skin nutty flavour. I think I preferred the Cherry Latte Oolong (??) but this is also tasty.
2.5 tsp in 16 oz for 4 min plus some milk.
This is not a tea I ever would have chosen for myself, because “latte” makes me think coffee, and tea and coffee should remain separate drinks.
But OMG. Thanks so much for sending me some, Dexter! It’s SO GOOD. The cherry flavour is amazing. It really tastes like those cherry candies that ooze cherry syrup when you bite into them. The expensive ones, though, not the waxy $2/box ones you sometimes find at Christmas.
I made a good choice with this one.
Not as boozey as it was that first time.
Really delicious, though. This might not be my ideal chestnut tea, but it’s a nice nutty chocolate tea. Here’s hoping I don’t get tired of the chocolate flavour before I reach the end of my 100g!
Thank you to Dexter and Sil for sharing this.
It was… bad. So astringent. The chili barely made itself known, and the chocolate did not blend well with the astringent Ceylon base. “Brisk” is what they call it…
Even milk didn’t rescue it for me.
So disappointed. The flavours sounded like such a great combination after I tried Passage du Desir.
Chocolate and something. The caraway (which honestly I usually detest) wasn’t extremely prevalent. But it was more of a savoury chocolate tea, and I much preferred the sweetness of Passage de Desir (or whatever).
Nice tea, but the flavours aren’t for me at all.
Thank you for sharing all the teas, Sil!
