6828 Tasting Notes
oh. i like this one. I have a free bag of tea that i can pick from DT – so i was exploring the new teas. the gentleman working there said new teas out next week, and a possible sale, so i may hold off for a little while longer. THIS is on my short list though as both a herbal AND a ginger tea. I do love me some ginger. :) It’s not too intense – i think the apple helps dial the heat back, but man. yum.
Final sample from A Quarter to Tea This one has sprinkles and cake like additions to it. Normally i’m not a fan of that sort of additions to teas, but in this particular case, i think it adds to the whole “cake” tea concept. this is vanilla cake in a cup. However, instead of strawberry, i’m getting an almost amaretto like taste. That’s not to say that it’s bad but it wasn’t just vanilla cake :) the rooibos in this one is present, but not in that overly intense sort of way. It’s also not that dreaded woody rooibos that i really don’t like. On the whole, while this has a little more going for it than straight up vanilla cake, i still like it and enjoyed. I would recommend checking A Quarter to Tea out based on the strength of the offerings i tried. Once i’m good to order tea again, I’ll be placing an order to try out a few more…like the mexican hot chocolate maybe? :)
Another tea from A Quarter to tea As some of you may know, i don’t love oolongs, but i don’t hate them. I do however, love a good caramel oolong…and add some apple to the mix, i am usually sold.
this one brews up as a nice bakes sort of tea. at least that’s first impressions…baked caramel gods…followed up apple and what feels like, a hint of cinnamon…except that it might just be me projecting that, because this does a good job of creating that baked apple sort of goodness…ingredients say…yes there is cinnamon in here but it’s not IN YOUR FACE cinnamon. it’s a subtle blending of apple, caramel and cinnamon. I am a fan.
So glad i was able to pick this up while in paris. It was a total splruge given the price even though it was much less expensive than some teas…but it is delicious! I hope NoFarS is doing well – it was she who introduced Terri (and through Terri, me) to this tea. So here’s to friends from far and wide who come together through tea. This is as i remember it…malty, chocolatey…delicious. even cold (work distracted me) i am enjoying every last drop!
