i am a fan of lime teas. I picked this one up hoping for a little competition with lime gelato from david’s or lime chiffon from della terra. Sadly, after cold brewing this for the day, it’s only a little limey and the bright pink brew is unsettling haha. It’s got a creamy ish sort of taste to it, and it’s not sour but it’s also pretty weak in the lime department. I’ll drink this and enjoy it, especially on hot summer days but this isn’t nearly as limey as it needs to be :)
I’ve been hoarding this one, which is silly because it’s not a limited edition, i can get it anytime and i love it. So i dug it out as a little reward today for finishing off my october teas, and because technically i should be working through my 100g of this anyway haha. Added a little maple syrup as i usually do and loved every last drop of it! yay for being back to work after working from home for 4 days lol
I figured i should bust this out to have again since i bought it a while back and while i blew through the japon i bought, i hadn’t even had this one yet. Not my favourite of the nin’as teas but one that i do like. I wish i could get the full caramel/vanilla intensity that i get in Japon, but in this black base. Still, it’s a nice treat to have, though maybe not a reorder by the time i finish the package heh
better review to come of this at a later date but i wanted to try this hand in hand with taurus to see which i preferred. this one is clearly a fruit tea :) and is “close” to strawberry but the “cream” is for sure coming through. overall a really nice tea i can see drinking cold in the summer..which is good because that’s why i picked it up!
i think i’m too hot. started to write this note and now i’m not feeling well so into the cold shower i go. long story short, pulled this one out since i need to start working on Jan-march teas lol if i’m going to keep up with my goals. while theres a little more rooibos taste here than i want, it still a tasty treat
Cavocorax shared this one with me, and since it’s a new month i’m doing my best to start focusing back on all the samples i have in my cupboard. I pulled this one out because it’s got ginger, and i love me some ginger :)
on the whole, this one wasn’t bad. it’s still got that familiar adagio smell and taste but at least the ginger comes creeping through. i added a bit of actual ginger to this and that made it pop even more.
