3707 Tasting Notes
Getting sooo sleepy so my apologies for the poor tasting note on this one. Especially as a first tasting note.
1) this tea is like a smorgashboard of fruit chunks! It really does look like either a bag of candies or something that should be at the bottom of a cereal box lol.
2) not sure how they managed it but yes, this particular combination of fruit leaves a largely vanilla marzipan taste. Which is funny because i quite enjoy this tea (though it makes me sneeze a little) while i hate marzipan lol The tail end of the sip does turn slightly fruity though.
Hmmmm so this tea smells delicious when you open it. The berry smell really is nice. I originally picked this up from purearoma because i need to find a few more teas for the evening as well as teas i can cold brew. The other portion of my sample will be going towards a cold brew, though i suspect the hibiscus may come out a little strong as a cold brew.
…but i digress. One this is brewed up, it has a lovely fruity taste to it, though there is the taste of the hibiscus at the tail end of the sip. I suspect a dash of sweetner would smooth that out though and make this a lovelier brew. I just got carried away and finished drinking it before i got around to trying it haha. Still digging the samples from purearoma. Also LOVE that they’re resealable. and in super awesome thick bags.
I decided to celebrate Stacy launching her custom tea section, with another couple of cups of my tea. it’s ben a while since i’d had any for myself, instead i’ve been sending a lot of it out in swamps for others to enjoy and get a taste of what stacy can do. This was for sure a hard taste to capture, which is why i think a lot of strawberry rhubarb teas fall flat for me. Not the case here – plus it’s a black base! YAY! Once i pick up some of the final version i’ll start rating it in stacy’s other entry but for now..i’ve got this one..and probably still uh 3oz left of it or something silly like that heh
hahaha i’m so glad you drank this today terri! Funnily enough it’s what i had first thing this morning but couldn’t find it in my cupboard – somehow missed adding this one. Couldn’t remember who the vendor was so until you posted this i couldn’t log it.
I enjoyed this one this morning but it wasn’t anything to knock my socks off. It was a good bold black to kick my morning off with no astringency. Thanks for the share Terri!
Oh man… this IS delicious. I made a cup of this to drink while i had my meeting with china tonight and sadly i didn’t get a chance to drink most of it hot. However i have to say this really does have that caramel, chocolatey taste. This is on the order list for my upcoming order from the steap shoppe.
Thank you again mercuryhime for this wonderful tea. Bumping the rating up a little as i think i managed to actually steep this better this time around. The flavours this time were even more delightful and delicious! I really like how fresh the strawberry taste is, rather than an artificial taste. This may have to go on the re-order list for the next shared order with the girls. Really digging this.
Surprise sample from tastybrew that i thought i’d have today. I have to say i really love the star shaped tea that is in this. They are super cute! I have to say this tea isn’t half bad. It reminds me of something that I just can’t place though. I’ve got a bit more that i’ll have to use to try and figure out what this reminds me of. Either way, happy to have tried this since i haven’t had a lot of teas from art of tea.
