3091 Tasting Notes
sip down! passed the rest of this off to my dad to try. it was nice to get in on this sample from zen tea but it won’t be a repurchase as it’s not my favourite keemun so far. still a decent tea though!
I’m trying this blend today, though I typically let frank’s blends sit for a few weeks before i try them to let the flavours sit. I get the strawberry flavours from this but not a lot of the tart rhubarb I expect from strawberry rhubarb pie. I added a bit of cream to this since there’s an abundance of it in my place thanks to christmas dinner and it made it a bit smoother and pie like.
I’m going to withold rating this until the blend has had a chance to sit for a bit but tentatively i’d put this around a 75.
backlog from yesterday…
I’ve discovered the way to drink this is with a splash of milk – something i don’t normally ever put in my teas. I tried it last night because we have an abundance of cream in the house as i’d picked some up for my parents to have with their coffee and now i don’t know what to do with it! lol
The addition of the cream made this taste like a cookie! it toned down the cinnamon and just made it into a melty delicious cookie.
I really want to try this cold now. This tastes like those blue raspberry freezies! I guess it’s artificial tasting but its so true in taste to things that are raspberry flavoured. I really think I can get behind this one :)
Sip down! Which is totally weird because apparently I never logged this prior to the sip down. This is a nice enough vanilla black but I prefer the version from steeped and infused. Th black is a little lighter than I’d reefer and the vanilla not as strong. Still I’m grateful for the sample from zen tea!
Sip down! Had this with dinner and it was a nice complement.
Quick note because the parents are still here and they’re laughing at me taking notes on teas. I figure there will be a number of back logs from me tonight once they leave lol. Been having this one most of the day while we play games and enjoy our time together. My parents loved their little package of presents and I was able to surprise Ian with his expansion to the game he loves. I’m still in awe over what my parents bought us though – a full set of d5 all clad pots! Add that to the tea kettle I Bought myself and I’m over the moon this Christmas :)
No juice in the house so i’m kicking off today with a much needed matcha smoothie before the parents get here for fun and games all day long! I really like the sweetness of this one in smoothie form. Soooo good and just the right pop to kick off the morning before i roll into tea mode :)
ok fine…ONE more tea… lol
not sure how i feel about this one. It’s fruity, but i’m not sure i can pinpoint this as being raspberry. It’s tasty though, so i’ll see if i can play with it and get more of a raspberry flavour out of it. I generally have trouble with whites, so that’s not shocking :)
Alright…i think? this is the last tea for the evening now that I’ve sent my parents off to bed and we can get ready for tomorrow’s festivities. I hoped for a bit more from this tea. It vaguely reminds me of frank’s chocomate, though that may just be because of the toasted mate. I think i may have to pass this on to someone else to try as it appears i’m not overly a fan of mate. However! I will try this again with milk or something added to it to see if that makes it a bit more creamy and delicious.
