366 Tasting Notes
Currently enjoying a cup of this to hopefully keep me awake for the last hour of work. (The weather here has been nothing but RAIN for the last few day.) It is a very strong peppermint flavor that stays with you even after the final sip. I like it a lot and it seems to be the perfect afternoon tea. (Also of note this was bought before the recall…so no worries there)
At first the smell is a bit off a turn off. Ok to be honest it’s a REAL turn off. However, the taste (to me) is amazing! The addition of the peppermint to the chocolaty flavor of the Mate punches up the flavor just enough to make this an awesome start to my rainy Monday. It also makes me wish it would cool down just a bit so I could drink it faster!
Another sample from KeenTeaThyme (KiTT), tried this with my dessert after Easter dinner yesterday and it was ok. The taste was great….the apricot flavor and aroma was there, but there was something missing here for me. I don’t think there was that spice taste that I’m used to with most Chai teas. In fact I couldn’t really taste it at all. Oh well.
Drinking this again this evening (morning). I had treated myself to my first coffee after giving it up for Lent. Needless to say I’ve now found coffee is overrated. So I needed to wash the coffee taste out of my mouth.
So I went for one of my fav. berry teas to enjoy. I love the berry flavor and the soothing feeling it brings.
Received this from @KeenTeaThyme(KiTT) and wow the aroma is very spice filled. I like my Chai’s with some kick! I love the cardamon I’m tasting as well as the pepper. I’m not getting much of a cinnamon taste…which is a little bit of a downer. In the past I would always add milk and sweetener to my Chai’s, but not needed with this one at all! Yum is the word here.
Still one of my “go to” teas, usually when I am at work. See previous tasting notes.
Ok I can taste the blueberry flavor….but it isn’t as tart as I thought it would be. I can’t even taste the green Rooibos. But I must say it is helping me get through this afternoon (that is dragggging).
Needed a little kick to get my morning going after being sick for the last two days. It doesn’t give you a huge kick, but enough to get you into gear.
Drank this last night around 11pm (oddly enough slept like a baby after). Not as chocolaty as I thought it would be with a name like Chocolate Chai. I could smell the cinnamon spice and that was the taste the carried through from first to last drop. It wasn’t bad, but it was also nothing to write home about.
Enjoying another cup this morning. Hoping the mint taste I enjoyed last time will help ease the stomach trouble I’ve been “enjoying” all weekend. I again love the aroma of this tea before, during, and after infusion. Now to sit back and relax.
