1043 Tasting Notes
This… is not what I was hoping for. I remember the Stash Chai actually being half decent. Comforting with milk and sugar.
This? Umm, no. It’s really cinnamony, I can smell and taste the rum flavour (and it’s an alcohol based flavour too!), and there’s lots of clove.
If it were all I had, I’d totally drink it. However, I have loads more amazing versions of chai in my cupboard, so I’m going to dump this and make something else.
In other news, I still have 3 baskets to go and I’m already at 121 teas in my Great Reorganization. Wanna bet how much over 200 I am? :)
One day you might be going through your cupboard, and might come across your coconut matchaccino, the stuff you haven’t had in a while because of Too Much Tea syndrome.
And you might also have dark chocolate silk almond milk in your fridge. This might give you an idea that you think might be awesome.
And so you mix the matchaccino and chocolate milk together, and your idea is validated. It’s sweet, because both items have sugar, but it is so delicious. Dark chocolate and coconut belong together…
Every time I steep up one of their black teas, I like the base less and less.
Sniffing the leaves, I got hit with an overwhelming scent of booze. Ok, alcohol based flavourings, I can get behind that. Steeping it, it smells (well, as far as I can smell), delicious. Cinnamon and baked apples.
Tasting it, the base tea overwhelms. It’s bitter and astringent, and seriously. That is not cool. I’ll have to try to remember to steep the rest of their blacks at 185F.
Yep, I still love this tea. I’m having it with a spoonful of coconut cream, and it is delicious, if a little thin today. I think it does better in a basket, but I’m feeling lazy (and still sick!), so I’m using tea bags.
Mmm, tea. Why did I wait so long to have my first cup? So foolish.
I cold steeped the rest of my package of this. Thank you, MissB! I’ve actually quite enjoyed this tea!
It’s only been steeping 6 hours or so, so it’s not as strong as it will be either at midnight, or tomorrow morning. It’s a nice, delicate, fruity, sweet iced tea. No hibiscus, at least in my batch.
I’d definitely get this again, provided I knew what the ingredients were prior to purchasing. :)
(PS. It’s bronchitis. I have antibiotics, and no work till Monday. Whee.)
So good. So, so good. I could smell the delightful spices, even though all I could taste was the tiny bit of astringency from the black tea.
Yeah. I can sniff things and smell them sort of, but I can’t taste. All I want to do is enjoy my tea!
Oh, also! I have appointment at the walk-in clinic! Isn’t that nice? And I went washing machine shopping with a friend and came home with a rose plant. Not quite sure how that happened, but maybe the thorns will teach the kitten to not eat my plants…
Today it’s OK, I guess. The base is coming through for me more than the flavour (home sick AGAIN today. Heading to the clinic soon.), which kind of sucks. The base isn’t super lovely or anything.
I can smell the berries, though. The promise of deliciousness is there, but then I taste… oversteeped black tea. Hmm. Maybe I did oversteep it. I was on the phone…
Thank you, oh Fjellrev. :)
This tea brewed up super pale. Maybe I didn’t use enough leaf? Probably. Hmm.
I can smell the root beer. I really really can. I can also TASTE it. I had a couple sips plain, then added 1/8 tsp sugar and a little coconut cream. Just to bring out the sweet creaminess.
Right now, I like this, although the tea could be stronger. More… tea-like. I hope the flavour stays once my senses are all back to normal.
Soo, umm, accidentally hitting “esc” loses you your tasting note. The more you know.
Anyways, this is sweetly caffeinated.
Sweet fruity genericness and lovely black tea, because I still have my cold. I do like this one, but I don’t think I’d get 100g.
Thanks, MissB. :)
