1699 Tasting Notes
Yes! This is a winner. I want more of it when I run out. 20g would do…
Oh, also I totally broke my tea buying hiatus. :O I was having a rough day, and I thought if I went into a Davids to buy a matcha spoon (so I could try my matcha samples easier) then I’d be happier! But then I grabbed Ceylon Spring and Kokomo Green.
Ummm… I technically didn’t order anything though, right? Riiiiight? /0\
I’m going to finish drinking this and go to bed. I didn’t see more than a few little green leaves in the mix so I doubt this would keep me up. I’m re-reading the Dark Tower series. It’s both awful and wonderful at the same time. Books are confusing.
Oooh – very fruit! I was hoping more from this because I’ve enjoyed the other bluebird teas, but I think the hibiscus on this is detracting too much from the rest of it. It’s too tart!
of course had I known there was hibiscus in it beforehand I would have steeped it for less. For that reason, I won’t rate this. At 3 minutes, it might have been perfectly balanced, and iced it might have been amazing.
I’m happy I got a chance to taste this one as it sounded interesting. When I smell it, it reminds me of nuts, but when I taste it I get a little bit of caramel corn, followed by apples.
Even as a fruity/nutty green it is very enjoyable, and seeing as it’s about 95% add-ins, I imagine it barely has any caffeine in it either!
This was a surprise tea from Melanie!
I was a bit nervous when I finished brewing it due to the light pink colour, but no – it’s not hibiscus! It’s fruit! This tea is nice and fruity, and quite refreshing either hot or cold, although it’s much nicer cold.
It would be quite pleasant to sip away at this all summer!
Backlog from Sunday
This was a pretty nice oolong, and I enjoyed the creaminess of it, but it was far more floral and much less buttery than the Creme de la Creme Oolong, and I guess I was hoping for more buttery smoothness.
I’ll try this one again when I’m in the mood for something floral-y so I can give it a proper rating!
