6653 Tasting Notes
ok so i know i just waxed poetic about how awesome mate is(NOT)…but this one is ok. It seems the chocolate cuts through that, i’m mate…i taste like burnt chalk taste and adds to this. But you know? if it was just black tea with this flavouring… i’d like it more. so POOP ON YOU MATE! true story. but the flavours of this one at least make it drinkable…mostly. thanks cavo! one more for “all the tea!”
sooo milk oolongs. they’re a thing. sometimes i like them..sometimes i don’t…and i never ever ever ever like the resteep. This one isn’t half bad. What’s strange to me is that i got no buttery sort of flavour that i get from most milk oolongs. instead this was almost more like a peach oolong. but a natural peach, not that weird tim horton’s peach flavoured drink (that of course i loved when i was younger!). on the whole…not to shabby! thanks awkward soul!
Keychange sent some of this my way, which is great since there are a great many H&S teas that i haven’t yet tried. On the whole, my impression of them as a company is that they have teas that are just above midrange in terms of quality, and are reasonably priced – esp if you get more than a sample size. Downside is there ridiculous shipping costs to canada, but i have a tea mule so i shouldn’t complain.
I picked this one today as i woke up stupidly early and needed something to get me going right away. This is a strong, bold, brisk cup of tea – likely something that i should have added milk/sugar to, but i just can’t seem to bring myself to do it…EVEN in cases where that’s kinda how the tea was supposed to be drunk :) On the whole i am quite enjoying this – it’s a good kick in the pants sort of tea :) thanks keychange!
Last cup of this! I’m still not sure if i want to pick up a tin of this. On one hand it’s a really nice cup of tea – smooth, comforting, unobtrusive. On the other hand, there are cups i’ve had that were more flavourful and more of a WOW cup of tea. But sometimes all you want is a good cup of relaxing tea that doesn’t demand your attention. hmmmm
