drank Apricot Orange by Unknown
911 tasting notes

I’m a sucker for anything orange, so of course I got some of this to try. I have no clue who makes this tea but after drinking it, I don’t really care.

Maybe I’m just moody because it’s wet and rainy and traffic was a bear. But this tea? Not so great. It brewed up decently dark but had little flavor other than sweet. And not even a good sweet. More of a sickly, artificial sweet. I couldn’t pick out any apricot or orange flavor. (It was kind of like trying to figure out what flavor the Runts candies are as you eat them. You don’t really know because they don’t actually taste like fruit but they are pretending to be some sort of fruit so you just have to go with it.) But if hard pressed, I would have said this tasted like mango. Not good mango, mind you. Runts mango (they do make a candy in that flavor actually).

And if that wasn’t enough, it left a nasty taste in my mouth, not dissimilar to the aftertaste I get when I have something with Splenda or (worse) Sweet n Low.

Bottom line: not a fan.

The ability to say “no, not this one” is underrated.

I like banana runts.

That is all.

You LIKE banana runts? REALLY?

Wow. My entire world view has shifted. I thought it was a fact of life, kind of like gravity. Gravity keeps us from falling off the earth, no one likes banana Runts.

The next time I get a 5lb bag of Runts from Costco, can I send you the bananas?

takgoti

YES PLEASE.

Auggy

Wow. Alrighty then. I don’t get the bags too often (because I eat them way too much when I have them) but when I get the next one, I’ll pack all my bananas up for you!

takgoti

And there was much rejoicing!

Can I convince you to send me all your strawberry Runts then? ;)

Auggy

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
