519 Tasting Notes
This is a bit bitter, but I also think I overleafed it a bit so it might be that causing it. I can definitely taste the vanilla, though it’s not as strong as I like my vanilla to be in tea. I like to have a STRONG vanilla if I’m going to have something labeled vanilla tea. Exception being the Persimmon Tree’s vanilla black tea because although that flavour is pretty subtle, it’s also awesome. This one is not as awesome as that. It’s not terrible, if I ignore the bitterness, but it’s not what I want from a vanilla tea.
Thanks to KallieBoo! for this sample.
This is actually really good. Usually I’m not a big fan of green teas in general, and this does still have a bit of the green tea flavour that I don’t like, mostly in the aftertaste, but the flavouring and whatever else is in it makes for a nice creamy lime treat. I used up the entire sample on one pot so I’m glad that it turned out well.
Got this sample in trade from KallieBoo!. Thanks!
The cranberry is very strong in this one. Really strong. It’s so tart that I think I don’t like it very much. I like my cranberries to be moderated by other things and this one tastes like straight up steeped cranberries, I can’t even taste the tea part of it. There is something else that I can’t identify in the taste and it’s rubbing me the wrong way.
