55 Tasting Notes
I received this as one of my sample teas on my last order and I will be ordering more! This was delicious! I didn’t bother with milk or sugar and am glad I didn’t! There was definitely some good hints of sweet potato and bread and I personally think this would make an amazing afternoon tea as its not astringent at all and is quite soft in its flavors, a good afternoon pick me up! Yum!
I really like this tea – I wasn’t too sure about a watermelon tea but this is super refreshing iced. Yes, I agree there is a slight artificial taste but I’m happy to ignore that because it is just so refreshing!! I can see myself drinking a lot of this through the summer season (which seems to have stated already in Southern California – 102 here today… BOOOOOO!!)
So I decided to get a sample tin of this in my last Adagio order and to be honest its pretty good, not reorder good, but still I’ve enjoyed drinking through this tin. This tea tastes of vanilla, cream, and blueberry and is pretty tasty with a touch of milk but it seems a little too bland for my liking.
I’ve drunk this a couple of times and wasn’t that impressed, and then I had a cup today and was blown away, I think the icing helped! And of course, as murphy’s law goes, I’ve decided I don’t really want to live without this tea in my cupboard at pretty much the exact time my latest Butiki order arrived.. Guess that means I need to taste through my new teas (Hello Birthday Cake, Blackberry Lime Gayusa, Crimson Horizon, White Rhino and Black Lotus!) before I can make another order!!! Anyways, this is a really tasty lemon, almond, pastry tea, it tastes like the lemony part of a lemon meringue pie and is super tasty iced… yum, yum, yum!!
Kissing squirrels – how could I resist???? However there is just something about this tea that I don’t quite like, I mean yes, it should be quite tasty what with the chestnuts and the almonds and the caramel and all… you know what it is… it tastes just a tiny bit chemically… boo. I think I’ll give this another try a little later in the day and see if it grows on me.
I’ve had this tea in my cupboard for a couple of weeks now and finally decided to open up the bag this morning while I was standing in front of my, what is quickly becoming, ridiculously huge stash of tea. I was after something that I could ice as its already well into the 90’s here in Southern California and a hot cup of tea when its 95 outside just does not always sit right… Anyways… this tea is pretty darn delicious iced, its a toasty cheesecakey mapley nutty cup of goodness and I was actually pretty surprised that it lent itself this well to icing… the maple smells a little overpowering in the bag but once iced it blends well with the other flavors and compliments the nutty undertones. I guess the next step is to try it hot and see if it translates just as well, if not, I’m more than happy to drink the whole bag iced!
