458 Tasting Notes
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.
I miss Teaopia so much. I didn’t appreciate them as much as I should have when they were still around…
Anyways, my mom-in-law gave me what she had left of this one, but I feel it’s definitely past its prime. Sometimes you can have a tea for a while and it still works, but this one isn’t like it could. It has the apple flavour still to it and it’s got a bit of cinnamon, but that’s about all I’m really noticing at the moment. It’s definitely a sweet tea from what I’m picking up. I feel like there is something else I’m picking up, but I’m not sure what it is… nutmeg? Yeah I dunno.
Anyways, I don’t taste the base at all with it, which is good and bad. I’m not one for oolongs, so it’s nice I can’t notice it, but at the same time, I’m starting to like them a bit so it would have been nice to get a bit of the flavour.
Well, like I said, this tea is past it’s prime so I shall let the rest of it go.
Teaopia, come back!!
Happy 400th tasting note to me!
I got a small Davidstea order in the mail today. Only three teas, ones on the wishlist. I decided this would be the one to jump into as it smelt curiously like Coco Lemon Thai.
I really love this one. I love the lemon and coconut and how it’s working together. There is definitely a lovely fruitiness to it also. I am quite happy with it. I will definitely enjoy this one. And I’ll drink it up fast hopefully. Unlike the Coco Lemon Thai that my dad bought me. I loved it, but then forgot about it… and I think it’s gone punky… so sad… I’ll try it again before I chuck it… but so sad…
Anyways, this one won’t have that happen. I’ll be drinking this one fast :)
I had this one last week with my mom and totally didn’t think to log it.
I was… disappointed with this one. I found it to be so lightly flavoured that it felt like I was just drinking water. I couldn’t get much of any flavour to it… I will be trying it again before I give up on it, but even my mom agreed. I guess we’ll see. I’m going to add more leaves and see what happens.
