57 Tasting Notes
Oh just ick. Please do not drink this. I spotted this one at a convenience store next to work and thought some tea would be nice. But not this one. Tastes artificial and bitter. And sickly sweet. Try any other mate. I left it in the cabinet at work, hoping that someone else would take it!
Sick today, trying to soothe a sore throat. This actually hit the spot quite nicely. I raised the water temp a bit and steeped a little longer, knowing that this is a rather light blend. I was pleasantly surprised. Even with my numbed senses I could taste the peanut butter quite distinctly, and it was the soother that I had hoped for. And perhaps it raised my spirits a little too. :)
A lonely pouch of Earl Grey Cheesecake had been chilling in my tea cupboard for quite some time. Frank’s post earlier this week on how to make a pitcher of iced tea brought this little pouch out of hiding. I rarely make freshly brewed iced tea, what can I say, just love it hot generally. And the idea of brewing a whole ounce of one of my favorites just freaks me out. But, its humid here in Kansas this week. And sadly I didn’t love the Earl Grey Cheesecake hot, so I thought, what the heck, live a little. ;) So glad that I did! It’s creamy and kinda smoky, and somehow I am tasting the “cheesecake” more in this version. Wow, you might just make an iced tea convert out of me yet, Frank! I actually think I prefer this tea iced. I suppose this makes sense, after all, who eats cheesecake hot?
Had a little of this today to help me relax, did the trick quite nicely! So delicious with a bit of honey. :)
And we have a winner! This stuff is freakin’ awesome. It really does taste like pancakes, buttery maple syrup get you out of bed on a Saturday morning pancakes! Frank, how about this one for the North American Tea Championship this year?
I’m just happy to have tea while at work and this is what was in the cabinet! Its a little tangy and somewhat sweet like honey without the real sweetness and almost gingery. All in all, not too shabby.
Mmm…certainly liking this little blue wonder this evening. :) I needed a decaffeinated soother tonight, and this is doing it for me!
I’m in Chicago this week on vacation visiting my husband’s family, and Tapal is their brand of choice. This is the tea I’ve been drinking for the past day and a half. I’m happy to say that I think I’m hooked! This fragrant tea is a truly lovely blend. The jasmine balances the green tea quite nicely, leaving a pleasantly non-grassy taste. Neither the jasmine nor the green tea flavors overpower! It’s slightly sweet and clean tasting. I think this is a green that I could drink regularly, definitely something I’ve never been able to say before! :)
