3041 Tasting Notes
So the downside to the way i make smoothies is that I don’t really have any sort of accurate tracking on when i’m using my matcha since i have a tendency to make 1 dominant flavour but then i add bits and pieces of other flavours to enhance it. Today it was a coffee matcha smoothie…but i added a bit of french vanilla and some chocolate. i’m pretty exhausted today so i was hoping that would help.
This is just what I needed tonight after dinner date night! Soothing vanilla tea…chocolate and berry…but mostly vanilla and delicious. This might be my favourite from the persimmon tree….might.
TRAVELLING TEA BOX!
Yeah so this might be the first early grey that I’ve ever had a cup of. Horrible I know, but keep that in mind :) This is technically the bagged version, but I’ll forgive it that. As a way of sampling a brand new tea, it’s not bad.
So earl grey….I haven’t had much experience with bergamot, so i’m assuming that’s what i’m tasting…but i can’t be certain. i think i can get behind this tea, but it wouldn’t be an every day tea. There’s a citrus zingy kinda of happening in this tea that confuses my mouth. It means i’ll need to try a few more earl grey’s as well just to see where i land on the whole EG thing…but this isn’t too shabby. This particular tea is really smooth though.
yeah… i think my train of thought just derailed…
mmm tasty tasty blueberry! I really like the zip and zing of this blueberry tea. I think what appeals to me the most of this is that it’s sweet blueberry but there also a bit of sour.
I really want to try brewing this in milk. TO date, all my chai’s are simply brewed with water, which means i feel like i’m missing out on a whole other world of chai. Nik will need to come teach me the way of the chai lol As far as Chai’s go, this one is pretty well suited to my tastes. It’s not tooo spicy and nor is the cinnamon the overpowering flavour.
mmmmmm smoothie! I totally didn’t get a chance to make one yesterday and I missed it. While i thoroughly enjoy this matcha, I’m leaning towards either not ordering it again or trying it with a black base. I’m starting to find that the cookies part of this isn’t quite what I want from a cookies n’ cream flavour. It helps when i add a wee bit of chocolate to the mix but it’s not quite there for what i’m looking for.
Tasty tasty strawberry pie for this evenings dessert tea. Oh happy days :)
Alright Stacy….I did it. I tried it lol. Picked this up as a sample in my last Order from Stacy because it might just be green oolongs that are all wrong for me.
Verdict on this one? It’s not too shabby and doesn’t bear that distinctive OOLONG taste that makes my mouth cringe. However, that being said I don’t know that I’d pick this up again just to enjoy. It’s a really nice tea but it doesn’t have the kickass haaalloooooo! That I like from my straight teas. DOnt get me wrong it’s a great tea for oolong lovers :) just not for sil :) really glad I tried it though cause its a really nice tea…with no oooooolongy taste! Haha
Travelling tea box!
So I’m going to let this one air out a bit before I try it again because there’s a bit of a smokiness to it that I think likely came from one of the other teas in the tea box. First impression though, is that this has the potential to be a good little tea. Holding out on rating it though until I get a chance to let it air for a bit.

So I don’t hate this but I totally see how others have called it “pledge” haha I think this might actually be kinda good if you cold brewed it and added sugar so ill have to try that with the rest of my sample :) hot it’s a little intense, and there are more interesting teas that do this better heh
