659 Tasting Notes
So, for the last two days since having to do this horrible Ph Study thingy, I’ve been having to take pain killers 24/7 since I’m in so much pain. Which isn’t what I’m used to surprisingly. I’m using tremadol instead of vicodin today for a number of good reasons, but one of the bad things is that this pain killer is ultra sensitive to caffeine, and is easily counteracted. So I can’t drink anything with caffeine unless the pain killers don’t help anyway and it doesn’t really matter. xD
But today when I woke up I took it right away and for some reason half the time when I take it in the morning it doesn’t work. So it didn’t really work this morning and I ended up being able to drink two cups of this!
All that to say, I’m super duper happy I got to drink this finally! I have been wanting to drink this for like the past week but there hasn’t been a good moment to. But todayyy I finally could!! It was delicious as always. I can imagine this tea being a staple in my collection. Though kinda hard for it to be a staple when I’m sure the harvests change every time… Or at least have a good chance of changing. Like my “beloved” Golden Fleece from Verdant. D:
Sorry about the rant. xD When you’re feeling as horrible as I am every day you end up getting excited for all the little things, that probably just sound stupid to other people haha! :P Anyway, that just made me happy. And I wanted to write about it.
Guess having the pain killers not work in the morning wasn’t a total loss. :P
Flavors: Baked Bread, Honey, Smooth, Sweet, Sweet Potatoes
Sample sipdown! :D
Been trying to sipdown all the many samples that I’ve tried and liked. I have a small box with a pretty decent amount left. So trying to sip them down sooner than later.
I’d definitely never buy this one, but it was a nice sample.
I really do prefer DavidsTea’s version, it’s much more creamy and caramel-y, with less woody flavors.
But it was alright. Not bad for a sample. Glad I got to try it, Thanks again for the sample, Albertocanfly! (:
Trying this one again. This time I didn’t over-steep! Yah! :D
This one is mainly just peppermint. No vanilla or any other notes that I found. Really just a peppermint tea. Not sure it reminds me of peppermint bark sadly :( But it’s alright.
Glad I got to try it. I won’t have a problem using the last tea bag. Thank you for the sample, Rosehips! I’m so happyto have gotten to try it!
I really really needed something to calm me down after this morning when I had to go to the dr to have a horrible test done. My body hurts like hell and I can barely swallow. Seriously have been such a mess today.
But this tea.
This tea totally calmed me down when I got home. Hurt tons to swallow, but it was definitely worth it. Helped me to be able to sleep for most of the day. xD Which was good for me because this monitor in my throat is killing me. xD
Also I really do think that the blend of lemon and chamomile is pretty nice in this tea. One tea bag left. :O
I was saving this for a special occasion. And so I thought that I’d take it to my grandpa’s birthday with me in a travel mug. I was so excited because i remember LOVING the sample Boychik sent me, and was eager to use up the rest of my sample.
I started steeping this tea, then had to go talk to my mum about something, and right in the middle of our conversation I remembered.
I ended up over-steeping it for like 3 minutes…which doesn’t seem like much, but it was so bitter. I tasted a little maltiness, which made me even more sad to know how much I missed out on. And I didn’t even get to re-steep this one because I had to go out to my gpa’s b-day party.
Oh…it was such a heartbreaking day…
I look forward to the day where I will finally pick some up! Really enjoyed this one in the past, and sad I couldn’t enjoy it more. :(
Got this as a sample from my last RoT order. Haven’t tried any of the teas in their wellness collection yet, but I kinda wanna try them all. xD I’m rather intrigued!
Anywho, I don’t think I was expecting much of this anyway, but when I found out it was supposed to be like nuts and vanilla, I found myself getting a litter eager.
The dry leaf and steeping aroma didn’t smell like anything which was kinda odd.
But the real surprise came when I began to drink it.
It tasted like cardboard.
Not even joking. xD
I could taste a little vanilla, but maybe their nut flavor just ended up being more like cardboard…I don’t even know xD Seriously haha!
I work in a warehouse, which is basically a kingdom of cardboard. I am all too familiar with the smell/taste of it. And it really doesn’t make for a great cup of tea to be honest. xD
I really do like the vanilla flavor in this tea, and I think that the idea of nuts and vanilla would blend well. But…Vanilla and cardboard?
No thank you!
Flavors: Cardboard, Vanilla
Holy Freakin’ Shanghai.
Why on earth is RoT teas not more popular here? Like seriously. Their caramel and vanilla flavoring is amazing!
Are they not popular because most of their teas are in tea bag form or what? If you like caramel or vanilla teas, you have to try this tea!
At first when I started drinking It tasted almost exactly like their “Caramel Vanilla Cuppa” tea. So I was kinda disappointed. But as I drank more the caramel flavor kinda sunk into the background while the creamy vanilla taste took over.
You don’t even need any sweetener or anything. It’s just that freakin’ delicious!
Thank you so much to Darby letting me try it!
If you like dessert teas, this is an excellent one to try!! I highly recommend! Think that this is going to be a staple in my cupboard!
My only complaint is that it isn’t decaf. But the amazing flavor makes up for it :P
Flavors: Caramel, Creamy, Smooth, Sweet, Vanilla
