6481 Tasting Notes
Hot brew from last night. This one was weird for me. It was a candy like brew but there was also a taste in the background that kept reminding me of something…and i kept getting a cinnamon taste from time to time. It wasn’t bad but i’m not sure it was what i was expecting. Cold brew in the fridge to try later since ultimately i’m looking for something to brew iced over the summer for rides.
Picked this one up last night and had it hot brew. There’s a cold brew in my fridge as well that i’ll finish off later today. I was on the hunt for a replacement tea to my cherry snowcone but sadly this isn’t it. While it’s a lovely strawberry/coconut drink, and i LIKE the hibiscus, i’m just not digging the coconut…which is too bad because i really like the strawberry flavour of this one. I’ll see how the coldbrew goes though, it might knock my socks off or something :)
slow tea drinking day today…lots to do this weekend so trying to take it easy and get ready for packaging up some swaps and such :) while i have loved this tea in the past, this harvest still isn’t my favourite. I’m hoping that 2015 is a better year for my fav teas…though i was looking at verdant’s site and it looks like prices are going up AND the tin options aren’t currently available. makes me a sad panda.
noms. Another tea from Paris. I did my best to try and pick up one or two herbals while i was there since i knew i was short on evening teas for when i didn’t want caffeine. this is a really nice fruity, caramel blend. there’s some hibby in here, which has never bothered me so i’m ok with that :) there are vanilla notes here too…which soften the fruit and make it a really nice summer sort of tea.
