5360 Tasting Notes
SIPDOWN! Thanks to courtney for this sample in our swap. Probably not a tea that i would ever choose to pick up on my own. In dry form this smells like candied, caramel popcorn. I steeped this for a long time, as i accidentally got distracted with someone else. The good thing being that this is one of those 5-7 min steeps, so it’ll take a bit of a beating i think.
In liquid form, this smells like caramel popcorn but only the initial taste carries that popcorney kinda of taste. The end of the sip is more like candied apple. While i’m not overly a fan of this, it’s a decent blend and i’m glad to have tried it. Thank you for this one courtney!
Had a small cup of this in the morning with breakfast though i’m sorry to say it’s not up my alley. I appreciate Indigobloom passing along a small sample to try though. I’m pretty sure i’m a flavoured matcha kinda girl, though i might find straight green matcha to my liking if i ever get a whishk, et and learn to whisk it properly. lol
So this tea had me expecting more. It’s basically a vanilla rooibos that isn’t TOO rooibos-y that has hints of garlic in the after taste. I was really hoping for a more garlic dominated tea just for something interesting to drink. Overall not bad, but obviously nothing relaly workth writing home about either.
mmm having a cup of this as i wake up this morning. It’s been nearly three days off together with the other half, which is pretty much unheard of around here! He’s sleeping in a bit so i’ve got time to get a few things going before we make awesome breakfast today! I’m also hoping to have time in there to make some banana bread for the week woot!
I still really enjoy this one, though i don’ think i’m catching nearly all the deliciousness everyone else is. IE. stick this or lasohan black in front of me and i’m good either way. Both are delicious and both taste pretty similar to me.
So this time around? This tea is much improved. I’m not sure if it was teh ratio of goodness in this steeping or what but its much more strawberry like than the first time, though the cake like goodness is also less noticeable in this steep versus the last one. Bumping the rating up since I can see the potential for delicious goodness that this one has.
Oh man…cold brewed this the other night in the hopes of trying to find that ian likes cold brewed since in the summer time he tends to want to drink a ton of juice. This one was pretty well received so i think this may work until i can find another one that he enjoys. I’m still trying to decide if i like this better hot or cold…
Thank you whatshesaid (who forever more will always make me think of whatsherface)
I finally got a chance to try this one from our swap today and it’s quite nice. It reminds me of a less creamy caramel creme. I prefer the base tea in this one though. I’ll have to try adding a splash of milk to this at some point as well. Good thing i’ve got a few cups of this to try out :)
