4026 Tasting Notes
la la la testing and hating the people i am backing up this week. la la la Figured i’d better stop drinking all that black tea…so a few rounds of rooibos are coming up! I still like this one even if it’s not the most amazing incredible rooibos tea ever. The flavour is nice, it’s tasty….i can let it steep for 20 mins and it’s just fine lol you know..by accident of course lol
This is a percent decent tea, though it’s slippery and hard to describe. The aroma of peach is delightful but doesn’t linger. It’s a rooibos which, ill be honest,is unusual in my tea preferences. My peach teas tend to be fruit based tisanes or green teas. This…this is a light peachy tea. The rooibos blends nicely, though it occasionally changes and I think for just a moment that its going to turn into a blechy rooibos tasting tea, but then it turns and its peach again. It’s be interesting to see if this turned out ok as a cold brew.
Figured i really need to try more of the teas in my cupboard that I haven’t tried yet. Soooo, since i’m on a rlol with sipdowns today i’m taking a break to try some of the new ones and see what i think of them. Also…i’ve had waaaaay too much tea today lol like i do every time i work from home. But testing tonight so i’m up until at least midnight anyway so what the hell.
I didn’t realise that this one had fruit in it as well as the caramel and honey. I really seem to prefer my caramel without the fruit unless we’re talking about damman or mariage freres. In this case, it’s not too bad. The flavouring just seems a little weak. I’ll have to try this a again and see if adding a wee bit of sweetener helps in the greater scheme of things.
Verdict is still out on this one. I had a cup of this tonight and it was not nearly as delicious as it smelled. I did steep it for 2.5 mins so i may try knocking that down to 2 to see where i’m at afterwards. It’s for sure different than blue berry zabaglione, but not quite what i’d hopped for. still, i’ve got lots to try and see how i can make it better. If not, well good swap material haha
sipdown! you know… for whatever reason, i don’t love this nearly as much as i did the first time around. It might be because this is a different picking or something but the first time, i was in love! now i’m like meh. I wouldn’t be oppoed to picking up a sample of this later on and see if my tastes have changed again but for now, i can live without it for a while.
Thank you for this sample Starfevre!
I’m still pretty undecided about this tea. I think part of it, is that in the case where chamomile is concerned, the frustration from having it in any of my baskets makes me more inclined to be critical of the tea. if that makes sense. Overall this is a pretty good mint chocolate tea. I’m just not sure how i feel yet about the addition of the chamomille. I think it’s proabably better than the current rating i’m giving it, but that’s a tentative rating until i can try it a couple more times.
SIPDOWN! because my other half totally drank a cup of this with me haha Thanks to kittenna for a sample of this one. To me? this is just another average ordinaryl chamomile tea. it’s got some mint, some chammomile…nothing too exciting, nothing too bad. Just a kills my brew basket if i forget and use it lol
