433 Tasting Notes

So, I might or might not have gone back and bought more of this right after my last little post a couple of months ago. I am well-stocked for the moment, which is a lovely feeling. When I’m in the mood for this tea, I just drink it instead of feeling like I need to hoard it. I even brought some just to leave at work! Ahhhh.

Anyway, another delicious cup of this was had today, and well enjoyed. Hoorah!

I bought this a while back and finally got around to trying it. I made it with almond milk and heated it on the stove. I really wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the white chocolate, and I think I agree with the previous reviewer that it was unnecessary, but I kind of enjoyed it as something different than my usual chai. When I was sipping it, it first tasted like regular chai but then the chocolate taste would sneak in through the back door and surprise me. Interesting blend for sure! I’m not sure I would repurchase it but I’m definitely glad I tried it.

Trying this from TTB1… I am starting to wonder if I just don’t care for darjeeling as much as I’d thought I did, because I don’t really care for this. It’s not terrible, the flavour just isn’t appealing at all. It’s on the lighter side, in both colour and taste, and honestly there’s not much else to day about it!

Finished up my sample of this from the 1st round of TTB… accidentally steeped for 7-8 minutes but STILL not bitter. Very nice. I can almost taste a cream note in the background but still not any bergamot. I wish it was a tad stronger but it’s a smooth black blend that’s very nice for the first tea of the morning on a very cold day.

I’m not even really sure I dislike this, but I’ve reached my tolerance limit. This is getting swapped or gifted!

Backlogging from last night… I didn’t get any raspberry from this (that I recall), and overall I didn’t love it. In general, I don’t seem to be a big fan of white teas. Maybe the subtlety is lost on me or I just haven’t developed the right palate for it. I’ve only tried a few but none of them have been blends I wanted to drink repeatedly. I’ll try again before I rate this but I’m not much of a fan at this point.

I feel the same way about white teas. I really want to like them, but I’m so used to black teas that they taste like nothing to me.

It’s good to know there’s someone else out there!

Profile

Bio

I’m a 41-year-old vegetarian zen witch who is obsessed with tea, music, beer, psychology (and many other things)! I really dislike herbal teas and will mostly only drink black with the occasional green and white mixed in from time to time. I have two huge cabinets full of tea that I will probably never be able to use up—it’s a constant battle to keep myself from buying more! Every time I travel, I come home with a bunch of new teas to try. I don’t post on here as often since I’m really trying to keep my collection in check and haven’t been trying as many new blends as I once did.
