456 Tasting Notes
Mmm, I really liked this. It is balanced and dessert-y but not cloying. I feel fortunate to taste samples of things I will never have bigger amounts of, as sad as it is, because I’d rather experience a small amount of something great I can’t have again than not experience it at all. Very good.
This was odd. It has two of my favorite flavors in the whole world, peach and vanilla, but it tasted SUPER artificial and strong. I could have sworn I tasted the slightest alcohol bite to it. Drinkable, but not my favorite, so I will be rehoming the rest.
This is really apple-y and good – sweet too, so much more like a red apple than green. I don’t really taste any floral notes, but whatever. I don’t need to. I like apples.
I got my certification today, and the director of field experiences from my education program emailed to recommend me for a long term sub position for fourth quarter this year. 5th grade at a local parochial school. So out of the blue, not even in the realm of my cert (though parochial schools don’t require them), but it is the first time I’ve been able to tangibly realize that there is potential, soon, for me to have a job I want and love and make the money I want and need. I have never made more than 25k a year my whole adult life, and living paycheck to paycheck.
Drinking only new and exciting teas today in celebration.
This is tasty, but not what a lot of people would think it would taste like. It is lemon, but more of a sweet lemon than sour lemon. With that, the tea is mellow and errs on sweet, and I think if you added sugar it would have a lemon candy aspect to it. I actually really like it, and I usually prefer fruit flavors to be strong, but strong lemon sometimes tastes artificial.
This was tasty, but I realized while drinking it that I’ve never had tamarind. At least not as a primary flavor to know what it tastes like. So unfortunately, I can’t speak to how accurate it is. It is a bit sweet, a bit tart, and warm tasting. Good for a cold morning like today.
Super duper thyme-y, the peach really (surprisingly) takes a backseat on this one. I think the flavors could use a bit more balancing, as I do think peach could stand up to thyme a bit more equally and be delicious, but this is delicious too. I think it could make a very refreshing pot of iced tea in the summer as well as hot, like a friend and I drank it today. I was surprised I enjoyed it, as it is primarily herb taste and more a wisp of peach, but I totally did.
