5049 Tasting Notes
Feeling a little guilty this morning drinking this instead of my 12 days of tea strawberry champagne matcha…but i’m trying to save that one for christmas day with my parents who are coming to visit.
I’m almost one this one, so I’ll need to place an order with redleaf in the new year to re-stock now that I’ve figured out which matchas i go through the quickest :) This one is creamy, sugary sweet toffee goodness…really enjoy it as a smoothie AND a latte!
Day 3! of the 12 days of christmas tea swap! Thank you to Liberteas for your egg-cellent idea :)
I opted to try this tea first since “floral” and i generally don’t get along and i’ve tried della terra’s tea before. The scent of this one brewed, reminds me faintly of "red rose’s orange pekoe tea. However, the first sip of this is pretty delicious. While i can taste the floral notes in the tea, they’re REALLY subtle and don’t clobber me with flower power. I’m not as familiar with green and black teas but this is an interesting blend. I don’t get much “creamy” flavour, but i may add a splash of milk to my next cup to try that out. Overall, this is a pretty enjoyable cup!
Quick cup of this before heading out into the evening to enjoy the lights and scene that is our winter holiday christmas market :) Mostly it’s just an excuse for me and my other half to get out and spend some relaxing time together. I am starting to enjoy this a bit more than at first. The vanilla isn’t quite as strong as i’d like it to be.
Mmmm this is a tasty tea! I actually really want to try this as a cold brew because i think it would be delicious that way. Thanks to Nicole again for letting me try this. I really think this is a nice smooth apricot black. I really like this straight with no additions to just let the black and apricots run through my mouth.
HOLY MOLY this is liquid Candy Cane. Another sample from the ever generous Nicole I have to say, that i totally don’t mind this tea but man you only want to drink a little at a time because it really is like liquid candy cane. heh I enjoyed this one and it certainly put me in the holiday mood. The scent is 100% candy cane and the taste is no different :)
Thanks again Nicole!
