3083 Tasting Notes
SIPDOWN! Thanks again raritea for this sample. I had a good time with this tea and now..now my chest is telling me i should take a break from tea for a few hours lol so I may try some water and/or decaf for a bit and see if that feels any better lol
This is a pretty decent tea…so i’m sure it’s on the discontinue list lol either way, it was good to have and try!
SIPDOWN! also… go me for getting to under 200 teas today. Did i mention i’m going to ignore the fact that i have orders on the way as well as teas not logged in my cupboard living with kittenna and raritea? :) Because what’s in my house at the moment in time? well that’s less than 200…so NYAH! Now to try and keep it going so that i stay under 200 when i get my tea from the two of them :)
This tea? Not so much a fan. it’s kind of like brown water with a murky filmy layer on top. eeesh. Thanks to kittenna for the sample though :)
Tried this one again. Bumping the rating a little as I seem to have found a better balance between the temp and steeping times. Still not my favourite though – there are better caramel/vanilla type teas out there.
meh. I’m not impressed with this one. Tried it again and today it’s a bunch of cinnamon with come chocolate in the background. I think i’d like this a lot more if there was no cinnamon. That being said, I also much prefer the other baked good teas from S&V. Sipdown of this since i’m going to pass the rest of this off to my friend who’s been bringing packages up to me from the US :)
Mmmmm! I’ve been sipping on this one most of the morning, gotta love re-steeps except for that whole needing to pee thing lol really enjoy this one from upton though this is likely to become a back up black rather than a staple :) there are just others that I enjoy even more than this one!
SIPDOWN! Not a bad tea and i’m happy to have been able to try this. It’s nothing i desperately need to have in my cupboard but it was an enjoyable tea to try.
Finally starting to be able to get through more of my upton samples again. This could for sure be a re-order when i get around to it as i am digging the delicious blend of the black base and caramel. so good! Now to try and get my stash down to under 200 today… ha!
So i’ve figured out that a splash of french vanilla matcha helps take the artificial taste out of this matcha and improves it significantly. This isn’t a bad matcha but i likely won’t reorder in part because of the artificial taste i’m getting, but more so because there are other flavours that i love a whole lot more :)
Thank you Kittenna for a sample of this tea. I’m going to have to go with overly unimpressed. Now, there was some discussion as to whether this loses it’s flavour quickly and i hope that’s the case for the sake of this tea. This is pretty much a sweet cup of water. Ah well, at least I was able to try this lol
Wow… i have to say this is a totally interesting tea! I’m not sure it’s something that I would drink often, but man i could go for this occasionally. Not only does it smell intensely like root beery but the taste is pretty damn close as well! I had some of this hot and then it accidently was left to cool right off while i was on a call. I can say, cold, this is VERY much like root beer. Hot, it’s still much like root beer but a little less so. Either way, if you’re looking for a root beer tea, this is it! :)
