729 Tasting Notes
I’ve never had hot buttered rum, so I can’t comment on the realism of the flavor. But, I like this! Luckily, I can’t taste the rooibos. I’m mostly getting the smokiness of the lapsang and lots of ginger as I first sip, but the aftertaste is this lovely caramelized sugar. A bit of a clove and cinnamon spice kicks in, but it’s not overly spicy. I usually love ginger, but feel like it detracts from the other flavors here.
Flavors: Caramel, Ginger, Smoke
Boosting my score to a perfect 100…because it really deserves it. Breakaway sells the absolute best matcha that I’ve tried. Hands down. It’s so smooth and drinkable, and there is absolutely no bitterness. I add a bit of honey, but it really doesn’t need it. I’ve been enjoying it most mornings, and I really look forward to it. Highly recommend for matcha lovers. All of their varietals that I’ve tried have been great, but I gravitate towards this one because of the value, and I make most of my matcha iced anyway.
I was positive that I wrote a review on this, but obviously that’s not the case. I really love this one. It’s one of the rare earl greys that I find myself enjoying these days. The blackberry is the most prominent flavor- so juicy and authentic tasting, much like other 52Teas blackberry blends. The bergamot is subtle and works with the blackberry so well. I ended up buying another small pouch because I was missing it.
