614 Tasting Notes

I loved this. I am not drinking my multi steepable tea as quickly as it is usually medium caffeine, and I am only home during times I want high or low caffeine on weekdays, but I got into this over the weekend. It is fruity and sweet and overall a lot of yum. I will be a bit sad when it runs out.

drank Toffe Bar Chai by 52teas

I really enjoy this. I am a chai fanatic, even more so in the fall and winter, and this one definitely has a distinct toffee note that is enhanced with a teeny bit of sugar. Nomnom. It isn’t too spicy but I think that is what helps the toffee flavor come out and not be overwhelmed.

drank Shamrock Green Tea by 52teas

I enjoyed this with my new roommate, who is actually my old college roommate from 10 years ago. We both enjoyed it a lot, and particularly liked that it wasn’t just minty but had the vanilla mint to make it more dessert-y.

Absolutely disgusting. I love cardamom, and I have no idea how this could be so bad. It had a sour taste, even a sour smell that couldn’t be resolved with milk, leaf adjustments, or steep adjustments. I finished my three cups of experiments, but I wouldn’t even give this away. Into the trash it goes.

I bought this when I was shopping in downtown Fredericksburg, and I absolutely love it. It really does taste like the woods, but in an appealing way. I love the sprinkles in it even though they don’t really melt, and they have no real connection to leaves, but they are pretty pops of color. I will definitely be getting more.

drank Coconut Cumin Chai by 52teas
614 tasting notes

I enjoyed this, which is a big surprise because while I love coconut, it tastes a bit too oily for me in tea most of the time. I couldn’t really actively taste cumin, but I feel it was probably for the best. I am sure it added subtle flavor, as it is a very pungent scent/flavor. Overall, I am glad I tried it. Not my favorite version of chai, but I love tasting all versions of chai.

I enjoyed this, despite being very peculiar about bergamot and levels of bergamot. I put milk in it, as I do all earl greys, and it was light but flavorful.

This is ok, but not my favorite. Even at a low temp, it is a bit bitter but also fruity. Glad to get to try, but won’t be purchasing.

In my non-tea times, I am usually watching netflix while writing lesson plans, cuddling my two kitties, or trying to find new things to do in a town that is sometimes a bit limited!
