767 Tasting Notes
Backlogging. I’m using the month of February to track how often I drink this tea since it is undeniably the tea I drink the most. More for my own curiosity than anything else. I’m counting resteeps as their own cup, but I won’t write a separate entry for them. Total cups consumed so far will be at the bottom of the page.
Yesterday started off great but ended horribly. Bah. So, while the day was going along swimmingly I made myself a cup of this and resteeped it once because this is a happy tea. Then, when everything blew up in my face last night I made myself another cup (which I also resteeped) because this tea is comfort in a cup. Hopefully today will be better.
Caramel marshmallow tea. What’s not to love?
This tea does have a time frame in which I find it truly enjoyable. Too hot and the flavors isn’t there. Too cool and its just meh. Oh, but that spot right in the middle… you get a sweet creamy treat that is sooo good.
I’m really glad I gave this one a try. Yum.
This is a lighter, brighter take on the traditional Earl Grey. The white tea is mild but very clean. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the taste of the tea came through. The bergamot doesn’t blend with the tea as much as it floats above it, and above the begamot there is a high floral note that is almost jasmine like. The different layers work well to make a delicate and delicious cup of tea.
I should just accept that I’m not a rooibos person. The only reason I keep trying rooibos is that I am already anti-hibiscus, and avoiding both would seriously limit the tisanes available to me. Who needs limits?
So, I don’t hate this blend, but I don’t love it either. There is a caramel like sweetness, but I’m not tasting the pear. The rooibos is heavy enough that distracts from the other flavors. So what I’m left with is a really sweet rooibos. If I were more of a rooibos person this would probably be very nice.
This one is easy enough to sip. Unfortunately, it’s also easy enough to forget. So the hunt for great herbals and tisanes continues….
