594 Tasting Notes
Thanks yssah for this sample. This is fruity, but apricot is generally not my thing so I can’t really confirm if it is authentically apricot or not. I used to eat dried apricots sometimes but it’s been years. It tastes similar to other apricot teas I’ve tried. I still don’t like the base much on these LIT blends though. Rough and a bit bitter.
Last matcha of the work day. Pushed it quite late to drink it. I’ll likely have to pee on the drive home. Unfortunate. Means I’ll have to go straight home and not on a walk and not to the post office and not to get gas for the car (which desperately needs to happen, but can be put off one more day). I’ve been making a lot of poor decisions lately.
This is…really really minty. I can’t imagine what the robust or higher level of flavouring is like considering how minty this is. I’m using it as a palate cleanser before I go home from work but wow this is minty. Good thing I like mint most of the time. The coolness that lingers in my mouth after I take a sip reminds me of toothpaste it’s so strong.
I just made a large order of this from RLT for the robust flavouring of this so I think I’ll drink this every day I’m at work (because it lives at work) until it’s gone. So expect tasting notes to that effect.
Slightly less sweet today, I think I put in a little less sugar than normal. I also forgot to swirl my cup before drinking the last swallows of this so I got a mouthful of matcha on the last swallow. Not entirely pleasant. For anyone reading this, Cola matcha still up for grabs on the swap thread from me.
So I didn’t get around to drinking this until it was lukewarm but that’s okay, that seems to be how I drink most of my tea. The flavouring in this is at a pleasant level, not too weak and not too strong and the base is…okay. Just there with not much going on. If you like passionfruit tea, you’ll probably like this, I find it just okay because passionfruit is not something I go out of my way to get under any circumstances.
