8052 Tasting Notes
i had this one earlier (today! almost caught up!) and it was downright yummy as far as smokey teas go. this is a different sort of smokey tea than the ones i’m used too, with a bit of something else coming out to play with this one. it’s also not a subtle tea (courtney stay away!). it’s smokey, and slightly sweet…with a bit of a punch to it. looking forward to trying it out with maple syrup :)
soooo i think i have more of this coming my way via 221….this sample though was from cavocorax and let me tell you..NOT.A.FAN. those who know me, know that i like a little smoke in my tea. This for sure has this, but outside of that, this was like a soapy weird gross smokey tea. There was no graham taste..or marshmallow or chocolate…just smoke that was REALLY nice…followed by soap. blech. if 221 does send me more, i’m hoping that it will be a bit tastier, or that i can coax a little more out of it…
thanks for sending this one my way variatea I pulled this one out the other night when i read roswell’s tasting note. sadly, for me this tasted too much like rooibos – the woodsy type i don’t like. When i DID get a mouthful of that delicious pear taste it was heaven! but every other sip was pear+ woodsy rooibos. so, not a fan over all :( but soo close to being a fantastic pear tea.
