5241 Tasting Notes
Dropping the rating on this one a little as it’s not nearly as delicious as i remember from my first run through it. I think as i’ve tried more and more teas, i’ve come to grow fonder for those dark robust blacks, while the “lighter” blacks have less appeal for me. Not that this is a bad tea, but it’s not going to be my favourite ever. :)
So i REAAAALLLLLY wanted one last cup of tea before bed and Della totally just put their teas on sale (again) so i couldn’t help it, i had to go sit down and measure out my portion of this tea in the shared order with the girls. Mostly, in case i decide i need to order more. So uh up one in my cupboard sigh You know what though? totally worth it. I don’t love this more than the lemon and lime chiffon but i do really enjoy this for it’s own reasons. I still think i prefer the orange lapacho tea Indigobloom found BUT this might be a decent substitute.
The orange isn’t as strong as i want it to be, but it IS still present and still has an almost creamy taste to it. mmmm yeah, i could have a bit more of this in my cupboard.
pssssst guess what? 200 teas! that means i just need to find a way to sipdown 10 teas tomorrow haha Not sure if that’s actually doable but we can see :) If nothing else, i’m still pretty proud of myself for getting down this far in 3 weeks. After the weekend with the girls i was at something stupid like 320+ and now i’m at 200. That being said, I have incoming swaps and orders, but there’s no mail until monday haha.
This one? I’d probably order it again. I rather enjoy the creaminess of the rooibos and it’s a nice change from the other fruitier rooibos blends that i like and love. It’s just not a tea i see myself wanting all that much in summer, so maybe i’ll hold off until the fall again.
Pretty much took a sip of this, made a face, took another sip and then poured the rest down the drain. It was like a mix of licorice and ginger…which wouldn’t be too bad, but it wasn’t the delicious kind of licorice. Not to mention that i pulled the star anise out of the brew basket before brewing it. so yeaaah. no. thankfully, sipdown!
Having a few delicious cups of this with dinner tonight. Cilantro in the enchiladas! and cilantro in the tea! that’s pretty much the only reason i did that, plus it’s so very nearly a sipdown lol AND my mango lassi tasting note reminded me that i do have this other mango blend from stacy
I am enjoying the fruity mango-ness of this tea quite a bit :)
