4674 Tasting Notes
Such a delicious tea. I’m really happy that I picked this one up on a whim a while ago. The way that the blueberry runs through the tea very subtly is wonderful. There’s a richness to the tea that i quite enjoy without sweetner. Adding a bit of sweetner merely enhances the flavour of the blueberries and makes them pop just slightly before being embraced once more by the purple tea.
I figured i’d revisit this tonight to try and see how things have come along with me and oolongs since i first tried this one. Sadly i don’t yet have my gaiwan to really do this properly but i’m saving some now that my first one is on the way from stacy! woot woot! Overall this isn’t a bad tea but is reminiscent of THAT taste in oolongs that i don’t much enjoy. Thankfully, I can try this again at a later date and give it one final try :)
Overall, it was nice to have one tea and only one tea to drink tonight as again…thing at work broke sigh here’s to a working from home day tomorrow so that I can get caught up with real work!
I’m not sure how i feel about this tea. Man does it smell when you open the package. It’s also got a bit of a weird taste to it that i can’t place. it’s completely a factor of the tea, but again i’m just not sure how i feel about it. I feel like maybe it’s a better cold brew tea with a bit of sweetner to smooth things out. Least i’ve got more to try out.
Oh yeah… that’s right. What’s better than cheesecake or caramel matcha? CHEESECAKE CARAMEL MATCHA! Hells yes! After yesterday’s fiasco i needed a double dose of goodness this morning to kick start my day. Since i couldn’t decide which one i wanted, i tossed both into my smoothie this morning. Best. decision. ever. yes that’s right..two tasting notes. one for each. because today? today is all about doing whatever i want. so ha! :)

Cold brewed this and it’s official. I’m done with this. Still a small bit left that I’ll toss into my sample box, provided of course I can ever get the post office to actually deliver to me. nothing sucks more than having the other person who sent me teas feel bad because the mail system can’t get their shit together.
Sitting on a call for 5.5hour (and counting) is ZERO fun when you have actual other work to do and can’t leave to go make tea. As a result this one is a little lukewarm because i’ve been holding off drinking it because once it’s gone..i’ve got NADDA at my desk until we fix this issue.
I can get behind this tea, even if the hibiscus makes this more of a sour peach kind of tea. I still enjoy this quite a bit, though i suspect that this would be amazing in summer with a bit of sweetner.
