4026 Tasting Notes
So i’ve figured out that a splash of french vanilla matcha helps take the artificial taste out of this matcha and improves it significantly. This isn’t a bad matcha but i likely won’t reorder in part because of the artificial taste i’m getting, but more so because there are other flavours that i love a whole lot more :)
Thank you Kittenna for a sample of this tea. I’m going to have to go with overly unimpressed. Now, there was some discussion as to whether this loses it’s flavour quickly and i hope that’s the case for the sake of this tea. This is pretty much a sweet cup of water. Ah well, at least I was able to try this lol
Wow… i have to say this is a totally interesting tea! I’m not sure it’s something that I would drink often, but man i could go for this occasionally. Not only does it smell intensely like root beery but the taste is pretty damn close as well! I had some of this hot and then it accidently was left to cool right off while i was on a call. I can say, cold, this is VERY much like root beer. Hot, it’s still much like root beer but a little less so. Either way, if you’re looking for a root beer tea, this is it! :)
This is such a happy tea for me. it’s funny though..this one was like WOW! and then i had queen catherine and i was like forget that one! :) Thought i’d revisit this one again tonight since i’m staring longingly into the harney website trying to decide on a SMALL purchase. My other half said if i wanted i could have his v-day present that he was going to get me or tea….it’s like sophie’s choice i tell you! lol ok so not that bad but man…i need to sit and drink some tea and think about the possibilities…
Made this as a cold brew and it’s not too shabby at all. With a bit of sweetner added to it, it really accentuates the grapefruit flavour making it pop! Not a bad tea that seems to do a decent enough job hot and cold if for whatever reason i can’t get stacy’s grapefruit :)
Another cup of this today and it’s not really a good cup today. the taste is all over the place and is most certainly NOT creme brulee. I think i’ll stick with the other teas from S&V since they are much truer to their flavours. Dropping the rating a bit even just since this doesn’t appear to be a consistent cup either.
SIPDOWN!!!! Yes ladies and gents, I managed to get through one of my bajillion teas. Of course I’m also planning on ordering more tea before i leave for china but that’s not crazy..right? RIGHT! FML i need an intervention lol. I’m sad to see this one god as it’s been delicious and thoroughly enjoyable but I will likely hold off before rotating this back into my cupboard for the time being. Only because i have so many other delicious black straight teas i need to drink up!
