2216 Tasting Notes
Hahaha. Totally copying Christina with this one.
Although… Bear With Me has totally got me onto the flavoured “President’s Choice” sparkling water in grapefruit… So here’s hoping I can keep my tea consumption high even though I have a case of this delicious bubbly stuff to consume. :D
This tea smells amazing! Like grapefruit-orange jelly candies. Not like I might still have some in the cupboard from Squish or anything, nope, not me.
I added a little honey since Christina said “sour” and I wanted to make it more like the candy smell.
It tastes almost a little dusty. And it’s fairly thin. And I think there’s licorice root in this (BLECH). But otherwise, I think the flavour is there. Perhaps if I hadn’t steeped it in the paper it wouldn’t taste dusty, but honestly if there’s licorice in here that’s probably it.
So, sadly, it’s a fail for me. After smelling so promising. My tastebuds are just too picky.
Thanks for sharing, MissB and Sil.
Spices. Orange blossoms. Flowers.
Hmm. Interesting. Not bad, but not my favourite profile. It’s almost too complicated, and doesn’t let me wallow in anything.
Also, it says on the packet that it’s a black tea but on here it says it’s a green blend. At any rate, it’s astringent. Even with milk.
Thanks so much for letting me try, MissB. It’s a neat combination of flavours but I would not search this out…
I still have so much of this tea.
Which is good.
I forgot how delicious and amazing it is. Licorice and spice, but no licorice gross sweetness.
(Even steeped for some ridiculous amount of time since I reflexively turned off the timer yet forgot to remove the steeping baskets from my mugs.)
