4923 Tasting Notes
Operation Sipdown is in full effect! I’m trying to get through as many of the teas that I can before December hits, as I forsee christmas tea purchases in my future. I’ve managed to sort through my cupboard this weekend and now I have a pile of teas that are older or close to being finished that I can work on over the next few weeks :)
I still enjoy this tea as an every day sort of tea. It’s got a bit of flavoring without being overpowering so I won’t get tired of it.
I’ve been adding splashes of this to my other matchasmoothies, so this morning I opted for a purely caramel smoothie! I’d almost forgotten how wonderful the caramel tastes on it’s own. I really do enjoy the 50/50 base though i’d be curious as well to see how a white base or entirely black base would fair. I’ve ordered a re-stock of this as well since it appears that I’m starting to run low again on this one. :)
Cold brewed this last night and tried to drink it this morning. I’m not sure if I just brewed it too strong, but the cold brew bought out more of the flavours i didn’t like. I’m going to send the rest of this off to a good home I think since I don’t appear to enjoy it as much hot brewed, and cold is off my list entirely.
Still no score on this one since I’m waiting on that order to arrive from Stacy. I broke down this evening and had a bit more of the sample sht sent me with the other base. I’m still trying not to drink it so that I can do a taste comparision when my order gets here…sooon… sigh Still i do love this grapefruit tea. It’s one of the few flavours that my other half says I was stalking stacy about. Whether he’s right on that count is another story but i’m happy it’s hear and it’s MINE! :)
Finally got around to cold brewing this one and its delicious! I added a bit of honey to bring out the sweetness just a bit and it is fantastic! I think this will be wonderful when summer rolls around again as a cold brew. Really digging the way the mango pops as a cold brew with the little bit of sweetener.
Another tea from my Amoda October box!
I quite enjoy the blueberry flavour in this tea. Theres a nice balance between the base and the blueberries. Also, the blueberries don’t have an artificial taste to them. It’s a bit like blueberry jam filled pastry or something along those lines. I think this was a great choice by Amoda.
Mmmmm trying to sort through my teas and figure out where I stand with the teas I have. As a result moving ratings around and trying to figure out what I still love or don’t now that I’ve had a few months of tasting a lot more teas :)
I’m dropping this rating a little, not because I don’t enjoy the tea, but because I’ve found others now (from butiki even) that I love even more than this one. I really like the sweet, earth, apricoty feel of this tea.
