7614 Tasting Notes
this one was on my wishlist and VariaTEA obliged. I actually quite enjoyed this one in terms of a tea versus living up to it’s name. From this one i get largely a really nice black base assam with vanilla and a hint of ginger. I’m always a fan of MORE ginger than less, so for me this is much more like a vanilla cream tea than a ginger cream. still though, quite tasty…just not quite it’s name.
bumping the rating up on this one a little as i think it’s one of my favourites from bellocq. I can’t be bothered remembering prices at the moment, but i think? it’s worth the price if memory serves. Had this earlier in the week as it’s been insane at work these days and i needed a great kick off to the morning. I think work might start slowing down by like december? ugh.
another one from variaTEA – wasn’t sure i’d like this one because of the mate. Turns out it’s not bad, just a little too sweet for me. The mate taste is buried, so that’s likely why i enjoyed it. Don’t think i’d pick up more of this on my own, but would drink it again if offered. It tastes like it’s name – chocolate + banana…just super sweet. I suspect this might make a decent latte to easy out the sweetness a little.
