drank Apricot #2 by Love is Tea (LIT)

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.

drank Berry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

I’m not having a good tasting day, I think. Everything is all muddled together when I drink it. I almost taste more matcha here than berry, despite having it before the exact same way and tasting the opposite previously. Frustrating.

Sorry to hear that :(

I can relate! I woke up with a bitter taste in my mouth, due to allergies I think, & it’s still there, underlying everything I eat & drink. Its really pissing me off…sigh…

Had this this morning. Encountered the bottom of the tin while scooping. Consuming this quicker than I thought.

drank Raspberry by Love is Tea (LIT)

This tea is okay. Nothing special. The taste is pleasant, but definitely not the best raspberry tea I’ve had. The dry smell is faintly creamy but it doesn’t seem to translate into the taste.

drank Mint Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

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.

Too sweet today, left a kind of sickly sweet taste in my mouth after finishing drinking. This was my first matcha love, but I’m becoming less enamoured with it as time goes on.

Pretty good. I taste the chocolate and the cherry about equally. A bit too much sweetener but that’s not the end of the world.

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.
