422 Tasting Notes
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.
Less is more with green teas. At least that’s what I’ve found so far with green teas and their steeping times.
So after having this one for a year, I finally am diving in. I hadn’t ‘cause I read somewhere that green teas aren’t good while pregnant? Don’t know how accurate that is…
Either way… I get the green taste very clearly through it, but I’m not really getting much for the grape though. It’s very little grape flavouring that I’m tasting. Maybe it’s the time that I’ve had the tea that is causing this, or maybe it’s just the scoop.. I don’t know. Will try again and decide from there
This is a backlog review from forever ago. I’m not even sure when I had this one. But either way, I got a rainbow tin of this one when it first came out but only now decided to try it.
I actually really loved this one. It’s a great chai tea with some lovely flavour. I really enjoyed the fact that tea is with a white base. Usually I have chai teas and they are a black base which almost makes the teas… heavier…?? That’s really the only way I can think of to describe it. But anyways, this base makes it nice and light. It really lets the chai spices come forward without hiding away somewhere behind the strong black base.
I didn’t add anything to this one. It didn’t need it. I’m starting to realize that as much as I LOVE my black teas, I’m really really starting to love white teas a bit more. They let the flavours come through and they become the centre stage. It’s interesting how my tastes are changing. But don’t worry, I shall always love my black teas. They are so gooooood.
Finally trying this one. It’s so good! Only let it steep for about 3 minutes, which is good ‘cause I think anymore might have been too much. The tea is sweet and fruity. I am getting the papaya, apple and mango. I don’t know what starfruit tastes like, but if it’s one of the flavours I’m getting, then I’m happy. Such a lovely tea. I’m really glad I got some of this one to try. Now I’m going to enjoy the rest of it for sure.
I’m thinking Imight try to make an iced white tea… haven’t done it before… can’t be much different than a herbal right? This one would be very good cold I think.
Had this one on the weekend. It was absolutely unbelievably amazing. It has such great melon flavour and is a nice sweet tea. I really want more of this one, but I don’t want to spend the money right now… I guess I’ll just think about it for a bit.
But if you like melons, which I usually don’t, you’ll love this tea. And I think that’s the other reason that I really love this one. As someone that doesn’t normally like melons, I was VERY pleasantly surprised by how much I did love it.
