421 Tasting Notes
The first time I tried this tea I absolutely hated it. It was terrible! I took a few sips and threw it out. Today I thought I’d try it again and if I hated it again, I would just toss the bag.
Today… it’s not terrible. It’s not mind-blowing by any means, but it’s not terrible. I wouldn’t get this one again ever, but it’s not terrible… Not sure if today’s attempt did enough to make me want to keep it though. I will probably throw it out.
I did get some apple flavour, but with a name like apple crunch, I would expect some form of pastry flavour or something creamy (which, the cream is suppose to be in there) and yet I taste nothing. It’s very strange. I don’t care for this tea. So… as I write this, I have decided that I’m done with it: the tea and this note. haha
I’m going to start this review by disclosing that I’m not a coffee drinker. I never have been and probably won’t be. I might get the odd ice capp from Tim’s but that’s about it.
So, anyways, my husband and I got a Keurig. I still can’t believe we got one, but we did so that when family comes over that actually do drink coffee, we can finally offer them some.
But while we were at the shop in town that sells the cups individually, we thought we’d get us a few things too, and this is one of the ones that I grabbed as it looked almost like loose leaf in the cup!
So it’s a STRONG tea. Like super strong. I was almost thrown by it. I ended up adding some milk to it to hopefully tone it down, but it didn’t really touch it too much. I did end up drinking most of it, but I think next time I would steep it up and make it into a latte. I would steam up some milk and add it afterwards and see what happens. I bet with the milk it would be amazing.
Anyways, I would get this again and see how well that works before I fully feel about it.
I have had this one for far too long.. don’t ask. I don’t actually know how long… either way, I’m enjoying this as latte form. Because of its age, I went ahead and used the whole thing which in my estimations would be 2.5tsps.
This worked out so well. It’s nice and smooth from the coconut. And it hasn’t turned so I have to think I got it last year in one of the sample packs I got.
Anyways, 6min steep, lots of hot milk, frothed up and inhaled in only a couple of minutes.
As much as I enjoyed this one, I don’t think I would get this again. I know I wouldn’t reach for it very often, which is shown in my lack of having this one sooner. Anyways, enjoyed but not a restock item.
Like many others here, I got this one as a sample when I made an online order with the free shipping.
Smell: Lovely strawberry flavour. It was unreal!
Taste: Fantastic strawberry flavour, but slightly tart from the hibiscus that is in there. I think I would steep it for less time next time I go for it. I do want to get a bit more and try it again. I love the strawberry flavour to it.
Made the last perfect spoon into a latte, but I think it needed a bit more tea. However, now that it has cooled a touch, it’s so good! I love this tea. It’s chocolate and coconut and a bit of a nuttiness to it. This will have to come back into my cupboard soon. But until then, goodbye friend and I’ll enjoy you again soon.
