529 Tasting Notes
Wow does this ever taste like the Teaopia blend! I use to drink this one hot, but today I thought I’d do it cold.
It’s pretty good. I probably could have let it steep a bit longer than the 5 minutes I did, but that’s okay. This one has a nice fruitiness to it, but it also has some floral from the rosehips. Because of that floral, I’m not sure if I’d get this one again. But it was nice to try this blend.
This tea is so yummy but I think my body doesn’t care for it. I found out several years ago that I’m allergic to grass and I have never gotten a good answer from anyone as to whether or not lemongrass is considered a grass same as like the grass outside that causes allergies.
Anyways, today I made this iced and my son seemed to enjoy it, but I found as I was drinking it I was starting to get a wicked headache. I switched and started drinking my blueberry latte instead and the headache pain is fading/almost gone. So, I don’t know if that means that I’m allergic or if it’s just one of those weird coincidences… Now I don’t know if I should keep it and try again or get rid of it…
I only had two perfect spoons of this one so I made a small latte with it as I didn’t want to drink it as just a regular tea.
It turned out pretty good actually. I’m actually kind of glad that I didn’t make it any stronger. It was a nice blueberry flavour without being overpowering and the base didn’t get too strong or overpowering either. I do appreciate how this one has real blueberries in it too as some of the other blueberry teas that I have tried have not had real berries in it and just flavouring.
So, either way, I quite enjoyed this tea. It was better than I remember it being before. Maybe as a latte helped?
Made an iced tea today with this one but I have to say, I don’t love this tea. I was getting some crazy floral taste to it, which doesn’t make too much sense to me, but yeah… So anyways, I didn’t enjoy this one that much. Maybe the amount I had was getting old? It probably was… Maybe a fresh sample would be better to try to really know how I feel about it, but this time I was kind of over it.
I bought this one during the summer while I was pregnant. Because of the caffeine and not wanting to overdo it, I didn’t try this one and bought 100g blind, hoping I would love it. Thankfully I was right! This tea is so delicious. I made it up with some milk because I haven’t been able to master drinking matcha straight up yet. I’m hoping I will be able to someday, but as of right now, it’s not happening.
Anyways, so I probably made this a bit stronger than needed. I grabbed the wrong spoon. I used my Teaopia teaspoon instead of my matcha spoon… so probably an extra half a scoop than needed, but oh well. This would make a great latte. I would probably love that. And I’d probably even enjoy this one as either an iced latte or iced tea with a splash of milk. Either way.
So I should actually mention something about the flavour of this one. haha It’s got a really nice strawberry flavour. It’s really spot-on, which makes me very happy. It doesn’t taste like artificial strawberries. I don’t get a lot of the green tea flavour, but that’s okay. It’s there, but not very strong. My only “complaint” about this one is that it is VERY sweet. Like, very sweet. I would have preferred if they had cut back on the cane sugar a bit.
Another one that I am tossing the last scoop or two of. I got this one because back almost a year ago I had someone say that I should keep orange pekoe in my cupboard for guests. Well, I got some and then it sat there and sat there. I started to drink what I had but honestly, I struggled to get through this one. I just love my Nepal Black and Honey Black so much more from Davidstea that to me this one is just boring… I don’t get a lot of flavours from it… Sorry orange pekoe. I wish I liked you more, but I just don’t…
My first cup for this in 9 months! Having it iced and it is absolutely amazing! I am in love. I read somewhere to stay away from hibiscus while pregnant so this one was one that sat around and waited… well, it was worth the wait! haha
Our second baby boy joined our family Monday evening after only 2 hours of labour. He is absolutely perfect and beautiful.
But I must say, I’m very glad to no longer be pregnant and that I get to enjoy things again… This tea being one of them! My glass of iced tea didn’t last. It’s so yummy. Delicious!
This tea is definitely sweet from all the chocolate and candy, but it’s pretty good. I’m not sure if I like this one more than Santa’s secret or not… I like how Santa’s Secret I could sweeten to my liking, whereas this one is very sweet already…
I know this would make a good latte though. I will probably try that tomorrow. I feel like I’m kind of back and forth on this one and how I feel… haha yeah I don’t know. The peppermint is nice but it does seem to need a bit more black tea base or something to it. I do feel like it is missing something? I’m really not sure.
