433 Tasting Notes
Tried this again today (with syrup—I keep forgetting to get one without it), and it’s definitely my favourite out of the Caribou tea latte blends. The pomegranate flavour was more noticeable this time and I quite enjoyed it.
Just a bit oversteeped today, so I added more water after it cooled off a bit. Not the best cup of this blend I’ve ever made for sure, but still enjoyable. I need to drink this more often!
Had this yesterday, and it was really lovely. It wasn’t the usual green tea blend, that’s for sure. I could see the little white chocolate bits in the tea, and there were quite a few of them, but it just added to the flavour of the blend and didn’t really stand out/distract like I usually feel regular chocolate does in a tea blend. I didn’t get any marshmallow notes from it, per se, but overall the vanilla/white chocolate just smoothed out the green tea flavour and it was a nicely balanced, slightly sweet cup of tea. Glad I got a couple of ounces of this! I am not normally a huge green tea fan so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
I had this in a coffee shop in Seattle and it tasted a lot better than it’s ever tasted when I make it at home. Kind of funny! It was much more well-blended and maybe not steeped as long as I normally steep it. It was nice to give it a second chance, and I enjoyed it, but I still wouldn’t buy more for myself.
Had two cups of this today. It’s really lacking, but I was REALLY in the mood for some Earl Grey and it’s 50/50 between this brand or the Celestial Seasonings that I have at work. I can’t wait to finish the last of the CS kind off and then I can buy a really good Earl Grey from somewhere else.
I haven’t been having this every Friday like usual since I’m trying to watch my calories a bit better lately (and save money). I also wish I liked Caribou Coffee’s chai latte better (because honestly, I’d rather give them my money vs. Starbucks), but I don’t. Today’s Tazo chai latte tasted pretty phenomenal, I have to say. Absence does make the heart grow fonder in this case!
Had this yesterday… always excellent, even in warmer weather. So glad I bought enough during the holidays that I can drink it all through the year without having to hoard it!
