5919 Tasting Notes
I had pretty high hopes for this one. Sadly, they fell short. It’s not that i didn’t like it..but it wasn’t butterscotch-y enough for me. I wanted butterscotch lifesaver flavour and instead this was a dialed back muted sort of butterscotch. I expect slightly more flavouring from “distinctive.” i suggest anyone picking this up that really wants a flavour punch – go for robust.
I haven’t had this tea in a very long while, so i pulled it out today to get a fix on it. Courtney requested some in a swap we had a short time ago and it got me thinking about it again. I think i like this one a little more than i did initially. It’s really quite smooth and tasty, now that i’ve got a great deal more black teas under my belt :) This is smooth and slightly nutty while being a really enjoyable cup of tea. yep…this was a good afternoon tea for me
i’m going to hold off on rating this because i accidentally over steeped this a little. And by a little…i really mean a little. and it’s awful. lol virtually undrinkable. i’m guessing it’s really all my fault because my swedish chef didn’t find this awful. Soooo jury can remain out on this one for now haha
strangely i haven’t logged this before now, though i have had it before. Overall this is a pretty average every day sort of tea. It’s nothing to knock my socks off but it’s nothing i’d turn down either. I really should try this gaiwan style though to see if that will coax anything else out of this one. hmmm…
Another one from my swedish chef! After having this one today, i feel like maybe i’ll use the last of this to try it steeped in milk. I think the vanilla in this one really helps to make the cinnamon feel like a creamy delicious tasting cinnamon bun sort of tea rather than a ZOMG CINNAMON HEART tea ") I am quite enjoying this one :)
Another tea from the swedish chef. Note to anyone drinking this – drink it hot. don’t let it cool. I really liked this when i was drinking it shortly after brewing it. It had a unique sort of flavour going on that peaked my interest. Sadly i got distracted with doing actual work and before i noticed it, it had cooled. when cooled it has a weird floral cinnamon taste with a bit of bitter something on the side. Hot it was cinnamon and cardamon and cloves and yummy. This would be something i’d think about restocking in small quantities in the winter :) so thank you swedish chef! :)
soooo funny story about this one. While i was drinking it i kept muttering to myself about there being no strawberry in this.. and how can this be chocolate strawberry… chocolate coconut caramel sure..but strawberry??? then i came over to write my tasting note and realised i’d been drinking chocolate caramel..not sure why i had strawberries in my head lol
This was another tea from my swedish chef. she’s mine now..in case you weren’t aware. :) There will likely be a few more today as i try to get through some samples and try things. I like this one a bunch but for me, there was for sure a coconut taste hanging out in the background. It didn’t ruin things for me but it kept me from fully enjoying the chocolate caramel…still pretty good though!
