514 Tasting Notes
I tried this at a higher temp and longer steep time and really didn’t care for it as much. For me, the perfect temp is somewhere between 200-180F at 3-4 min.
The flavors are leather, nuts, smoke, and general manliness. This fits the character perfectly and I actually enjoy this on special occasions.
I actually really love this one! I got a second box because I went through the first one so quickly. It reminds me a bit of these little hard candies that we were given while reading James and the Giant Peach during 4th grade. The peach flavor is more on par in this than any other peach tea I’ve had; which is surprising. Very much recommended for people who like herbals or want a good late night tea.
Wow. Tonight was one of those nights where I guess I needed a migraine pill, but now I don’t get to sleep!
I’ve had this one for a very long time and I’m actually surprised that the baggies still smell relatively fresh. I used two baggies just in case it is a bit weak now. Somehow this is way better than what I remember? I wish I would’ve let it steep just a bit longer. It has just a bit of a fake-sugar taste which I don’t appreciate. But the spices are pretty light and mainly cinnamon. The chocolate is there, but could use some body.
This tea is pretty good and I’m almost finished with it! (about 1 cuppa left) The only thing I really hate about it is that it is very astringent/bitter when left to its own devices. You have to be very careful about steep times or else it’ll just be ruined.
This has notes of Earl Grey, blueberry, and black tea. I like this most with milk, but is pretty tasty without it too.
I normally avoid this tea, but I’m trying to relax because I’ve had very little sleep+lots of panic attacks recently. No sleep means more tea+drawing+tv for me.
This still smells very much like popcorn to me. I think the flavor has toned down quite a bit, I have had this one for a very long time. The lemon stood out much more on this steep (8min). Maybe I’ve finally made this drinkable?
wave Sorry I haven’t been around lately everyone. I do miss it around here. I have a grumpy tummy so I thought this might do the trick. I used to rely on mint teas the most, but I have stopped favoring it lately. This tea smells and tastes mainly of lavender, not chamomile. This one is very soothing and great for nighttime.
Sipdown! This has been a really great blend. It is very assertive in the bold department. It can be bitter if brewed for too long. I would suggest storing the tea in a separate container then the bag because the rooibos always goes to the bottom and the blend tastes much better when mixed. Overall this has notes of black tea, spice, and mild jam; not really a sweet tea at all.
