457 Tasting Notes
The apple flavour of this one is starting to fade slightly, but that’s okay. It’s still a lovely tea with a nice green tea base and a sweet apple flavour. This tea is always so good when it’s fresh. I Hope they bring it back soon.
Anyways, my mind isn’t on this tea all that much… I can’t go into details, but by the end of the week my husband and I have to make a pretty big decision and we are struggling to know what to do. I think we are both leaning towards the same decision, which is great that we’re united that way, but it’s both exciting and scarey if it happens. I’m just hoping me make the right decision…
So, on that note, this tea is lovely. It’s a bit stronger than I would normally have liked, but I will still enjoy it and I’m thankful for it this morning.
I think I probably overleafed this one. I got quite a bit of bitterness from this one, and I believe it’s because I over did it. The colour of this one is very dark compared to what I would expect it to be.
But even still it’s got a great apple flavour. I need to figure out how much tea is good for my tea for one teapot from Davidstea. I always over leaf. Maybe just one perfect teaspoon? I dunno.
This tea is strange. It’s got a lovely fruitiness to it with what tastes like pineapple and something else too… papaya? It’s so smooth and lovely. Then it has the mintiness to it that you don’t really expect with a fruity tea, but somehow it all works together so well and it tastes really good. I like the refreshing mint taste.
And with my allergies in which a angry state and my lack of sleep ’cause I have a lot on my mind right now, this tea is really soothing me.
A very lovely chai. It really has a kick to it, which is what I love in chai teas. I want them to have a kick.
I’m getting the cinnamon and ginger for sure. I don’t really know what Cardamon tastes like… but either way, this tea is very delicious.
Anyways, I’m going to use the last bit of my sample to make a latte with. I know this would be absolutely dynamite in latte form.
EDIT: I just reread my tasting note on this one from a year ago. I am amazed at how much my feelings towards this one have changed. I really am enjoying it a lot more this time around it seems. I do agree with my note from last year that Saigon chai is better, but this one is also nice.
I’m not too sure how I feel about this one. It’s got a slight bit of… bitterness? maybe not… yeah maybe… I don’t know.
I am getting a bit of cranberry though. I am starting to realize that I do like cranberries, but I’m not sure if I like cranberries in tea. Either way, it’s an ok tea, but I wouldn’t refill it.
Not sure what I just did but I lost my tasting note… let’s try this again.
My aunt gave me the last two tsps of this one that I steeped up into about 16oz of water.
I get the nice roasted taste to it and I definitely get a great chai flavour to it too but I don’t really notice the apricot or even just a fruitiness to it. But I do like this tea. I probably wouldn’t get it again, but I did enjoy this cup a lot.
