5357 Tasting Notes
Figured I’d better end my night of tea drinking soon so i’m not waking up with a giant bladder of doom! lol So i picked this one and a rooibos to end the night. I’m really happy kittenna “made” me get some of this. I am a fan and would likely be willing to pick more up if David’s ever brought it back.
Another one from Junesusanna via cavocorax! This is a pretty tasty one. I’m not sure if it’s because there’s green rooibos in this one or what but it’s a really delicious fruity tea! I really want to cold brew this next to see if it’s a tea i can get behind cold as well. the berries are all hanging out in this one really nicely and there’s no bitterness. it also hasn’t devolved into that whole “generic” berry taste that i’m not fond of. happy to have this one to play with a bit more!
do.not. like. I was fairly certain that would be my impression in any case after smelling this one as it has a very artificial taste. Since i’m trying to taste ALL THE TEA, i made myself make a cup of this. I took a sip and promptly refused to drink any more of it. Some people might enjoy it but for me it’s just too fake tasting to me.
Sipdown! (235) haha i figured tonight was a good time to try this one and maybe a couple other rooibos teas to refrain from pilling up on the caffeine :) This was sent via Junesusanna and cavocorax :)
Cola teas confuse me. They’re hot but should be cold. This one is no exception. there is a definite cola taste to this tea but my mouth is totally weirded out by the heat. overall this is a good tea but i think i need to stay away from hot cola teas haha.
sipdown! (237) This is a sipdown thanks to the lovely nicole who is getting the rest of this one to try out! There was just a wee bit left at the end of packaging this up for her, so i had one last little cup to send it on it’s way. I didn’t mind this one and thoroughly enjoyed having it around but given the choice, i’ll take #49 first :)
SIPDOWN! (238) And so begins the start of operation clean up. Clean up as in, drink my old teas first while working on all the small amounts of tea i have that will be done in 2-3 cups. once that’s done or at least more sorted out, i can focus on drinking the teas i’ve got in my cupboard that i haven’t even tried yet. LOL. I don’t mind this one but it’s not my favourite. I reminds me of the pumpkin caramel cheescake tea from frank but not nearly as tasty heh. overall not a bad little blend though. Thanks for sending this my way cavo!
sooo I need to get back on track with sipping down my 52 teas so i figured i’d keep up with the cold brewing of this one. I don’t usually add things to my teas, so i suspect that’s why i didn’t like this one hot. But cold brewed, with sweetner – oh that hits the spot. It’s like liquid cotton candy. Yep. Not bad, but i’m not bumping the rating since i don’t like it hot!
thank you cavocorax for sending some of this one my way! Kittenna inspired me to try this out tonight which is good because it’s also a close sipdown haha soon! I’ve been wanting to try this one for a while now. I’m not sure what i expected from this one since it is my first decaf black tea. I feel like tea shouldn’t be decaf for whatever reason so yeah.
Overall this isn’t bad. I still think that unless i’m pregnant or something where i need to restrict my caffeine intake, i’d rather just drink a regular old black tea. I might try H&S’s normal vanilla and see how that compares.
On the whole though? this isn’t half bad. It’s not quite what i want. I’d for sure drink this again, but i don’t know that i’d keep it on hand, unless i needed none caffeine options. But for now? i don’t so ha! lol
