7428 Tasting Notes
what does sea buckthorn taste like? No idea. the internet says: the berries are quite tart, sort of like sour orange with hints of mango. Some people also liken them to pineapple.
hmmmm yeah nope. This is a creamy rooibos sort of blend that, if i’m honest tastes a little like creamy blueberry. it’s not a bad tea but i have other creamy rooibos teas that i prefer.
Final Count: 137 (added a couple bits from the GCTTB that i will drink later)
it was suggested on the bag that this one be cold brewed, but since peach and i have been having a fight lately, i opted for a hot brew. on the whole, this wasn’t bad, a little more artificial peach than delicious ripe real peach but not terrible. I don’t feel the need to keep this around but i am a fan of trying new things!
this is dangerous territory for me. Lavender and oolong. Let’s not mention the fact that it has the word SPA in the name. Couple things here..the vanilla really offsets the lavender. It helps make this a smoother, more subtle tea. the taste though, isn’t one that i love…it reminds me of the way that a number of spas smell….if that makes sense. this is a pretty decent blend if floral teas are up your alley. :) thanks LP!
I have no idea what jackseed’s taste like. As many know, i’m also not a huge fan of green teas. However, the point of travelling tea boxes is to try new things! Plus i need to make some actual room so that i can add things! I happened across an article this morning about cold brewing tea japanese style? (http://www.teaspoonsandpetals.com/teaspoons-petals/2016/02/shinobi-cha-ice-brewed-tea.html) I tried it out with this one and it was an interesting experience. It was neat to watch the ice melt and the tea gradually take on a darker colour. The flavour was a little intense, so i suspect this would be better done with a straight tea but it was fun to try! I think people who enjoy greens teas should give this one a shot. :)
