249 Tasting Notes
I brewed a pot of this earlier in the day and drank some but now I have a room temperature pot of tea. I could ice it but I’m too lazy today. You know what? It’s still great. Maybe it’ll motivate me to do something…maybe not.
I just sat down to do some correspondence on the computer and ended watching Animal House! Memories! Basically got nothing done!
Wow! This is wonderful. Awesome scent dry. Very lovely, fruity appearance. i see some rose/hibiscus in there. Beautiful dark, dark pink liquor; almost red but no yellow or orange. Nice peach aroma and taste. Needed a bit of sweeter to fight the evil hibiscus. It has a nice full mouth feel. I might have over-leafed it a bit but that doesn’t seem to matter. I wish I had enough to do a cold brew pitcher.
Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Hibiscus, Peach
I have been enjoying this tea as an cold brew. I only had a bit hot and I wasn’t particularly excited. As a cold brew, the cinnamon drops down a bit and the fruit flavors come up. I cold brewed it for about 18 hours. Sweetened with stevia.
It would be helpful to have steeping instructions for cold brew on our notes.
We are going out for a big dinner with my husband’s co-workers. This is always a stressful evening. They tend to spread the dinner out over 4-41/2 hours. It’s boring!!! Almost everyone else is related or at least working together 15 years or more. This is just Fred’s 2nd year with them. We have NOTHING in common with them.
I am having some spearmint tea as a pre-emptive stoke before eating! This is just a food
grade herb but it makes a nice enough tisane. Nothing exciting. I think I’ll see if I have some other mint tea to take with me. What I really want to do is take Prozac or something!
I tried this from the Herbal TTB and was very pleased. I loved the scent when I opened the bag. I tried it several ways: plain, stevia, vanilla stevia. When I tried it plain, I sensed the metallic notes that others mentioned. The one with stevia improved all the flavors. Bringing up the coconut and creamy flavors. The cup where I used Vanilla Stevia really brought up the flavors including the little bite that cheesecake should have. Now… I realize that if I have to add stuff to it, the tea is not quite as good as it should be. But…. I really like this tea. It continues to have a bit of a metallic taste which would be annoying if I had to drink a lot of this. However, I’m enjoying my cup.
Flavors: Cheesecake, Coconut, Cream, Metallic
I had already made a big pitcher of Vanilla Comoro cold brew. It is awesome cold brewed. Love the Ceylon black and vanilla. Yummy! Sometimes I get tired of having just herbals in the evening, this gives me a real choice for evening teas. I love it anytime! I haven’t had many of the other Harney teas but all that I have had, I’ve enjoyed.
I received this in the lovely Herbal Traveling Tea Box. Oh yum! I didn’t think that the dry leaf had much scent but the brewed tea is wonderful. The flavor is a lovely chocolate with a bit of maltiness that combines very well. I haven’t had honey bush before so I don’t know how that is effecting the the taste.
Flavors: Chocolate, Malt
