397 Tasting Notes
I got more of this one before my collection dwindled like I thought I was going to. I got a fresh small bag of it… was it this year or last year? I don’t remember. Doesn’t matter.
Today I made it into a latte. Absolutely amazing. I seriously inhaled it. I was very impressed. I love making lattes at home. I have so much more variety than shops do and it’s SO much cheaper!
Made this into a latte today. I probably made it stronger than needed, but I love strong flavoured lattes. This one was so great. It had the great cookie taste I mentioned in the last tasting note, and it’s got the creaminess of the cream.
This tea is such a surprise. I love it. Now that I’m making lattes at home, I don’t think this one will last long. haha Delish!
Bought this on a whim last week.
I wasn’t even sure about the smell honestly, but how could I pass up a tea called Cookies and Cream?!
I added some milk and sugar (not much), and it made this tea such a great sweet dessert tea. I definitely got the sweetness and chocolately taste from it. But there was also a creaminess to it. I was impressed by the combo and how well the two worked together and the fact that you get both the cookie taste and the cream. Usually you don’t get both when a company says you should, but this time you definitely can. Seriously surprised and impressed.
I’m going to enjoy this one.
As a side note, I’m like dying to buy more tea, which technically I have in the last week, but I want to buy more and I’m trying with everything in me to not. I have a Steeped Tea party tonight so we’ll see how well that lasts… I HAVE to drink down some of my collection!
I have decided that I dislike this tea. Not because of anything to do with the tea itself, but I realize that I don’t like apple teas that have a black base. They are okay, but I definitely prefer when they have a different base to them. Not sure if I’m going to finish this one or just toss what’s left… maybe I"ll try mixing it with something instead.
I have been really surprised by this one. It’s so good and I absolutely love it. I didn’t think I would with it being a hibiscus tea, but for some reason it doesn’t bother me here at all. Found the berry flavour to be quite good and the hibiscus doesn’t overpower like it tends to do. Such a great tea. I’m very impressed by this one. A great blend of flavours with nothing outshining the rest. All the flavours work in harmony. I also love that it turns a lovely shade of purple. SO pretty!!
Can’t decide if I want to stock up or not.
Making this as an iced tea to finish it up. It made a really good one last time I did this, so hopefully it’ll be good again. Almost three PS for 16oz of water. Probably too much, but I’m not concerned. Steeped up in hot water until it cooled and I’m leaving the leaves in until I’m ready to drink.
Will update tomorrow once I try it.
Pumpkin Patch… Normally Pumpkin chai is the tea I go to for pumpkin flavour, but this one is pretty good. I like the pumpkin and the spices with it.
I do wish I had steeped it for less time, but such is life. I still enjoy the flavours. It’s nice to have a pumpkin tea that isn’t chai. I can see this making a lovely latte. I’ll probably try that next.
After another lackluster cup of Grape Expectations, I decided to give up on it and toss the remaining 2-3 PS that I had left. I then decided to finally try this tea as I have put it off for a while now.
I bought a few years back a hazelnut tea from The Tea Haus in London. The only way that I actually enjoyed it was if I mixed it with the Chocolate Cream tea that I got from them too. So because of that, I wasn’t expecting too much.
This tea, however, is nothing like that tea in which I’m comparing it to. This tea is very nice. I love the chestnut flavour and how it’s almost… creamy? Maybe that’s because I added milk, but either way, I’m very much enjoying it and I know I will enjoy what I have left of this one, which isn’t too much.
Would I get this one again? Maybe. But it’s not one I would keep in stock in my house.
The last of my gingerbread this morning… sipdown
I’m enjoying this one after waking up with the munchkin. He’s finally starting to sleep through most of the night already! 8 hours in a row the last two nights! That’s one of those things where you wake up and you almost have to check he’s still breathing ‘cause there’s no way that it’s possible he slept that well!
Anyways, I’m not sure if maybe I oversteeped it or what, but I’m not enjoying this one as much as I thought I would this morning. It’s okay, but it’s not as nice as it was the first time. Or maybe I was just craving something else and now my tastebuds are confused…?
Either way, Glad I got to have this tea, but not sure if I’d get this one again unless my plan was to mix it with something.
Another one to enjoy this evening as my husband feeds our sweet little munchkin.
I get a great cinnamon flavour for sure.
And this tea is a nice sweet tea too. I do like that part of it.
Cookie? I don’t know about that, but either way, I like this tea the way it is.. I think I would almost enjoy it as a latte or at least as a hot tea with milk. I might add some milk. I think it would smooth this tea out even more and make it lovely.
