1700 Tasting Notes
Hmm. I think I’m going to decupboard this. Usually I love this tea, but this one just had an odd taste this time around. It’s almost salty with a smell/taste that reminds me of the flavouring from itchiban noodles. I’ve been delaying a tasting note on it in the hopes that it’s just me, but nearly done my 1 oz pack.
Maybe I’ll grab more on Friday and try again!
And there goes another of the samples from JustJames! Now my cupboard is at 88, which is nearly half of what it was in the summer. That’s crazy!
I think this is another one I’ll have to stock up on, somehow, at some point. It’s creamy, with strawberry and smells delicious. I don’t even mind the rose petals – it just adds a touch to the fragrance without making it perfumy.
I wish I’d realized that this was a black/green blend as I steeped it at near boiling, but this isn’t bitter at all. It’s just fragrant, and fruity and perfect.
Thank you VariaTEA for this sample! I sorta jumped on it as soon as I opened the package – it just looked so good!
And I thought it was pretty good too. It was maybe slightly lacking next to DT’s White Chocolate Frost, but if you let it cool a little the flavours sorta pop out a little and it tastes good.
So good that I almost took advantage of Teavana’s 30% sale. Eeek. I’m terribly impulsive, but I did feel a bit of satisfaction when I closed the browser (for now) and moved on. :P
Anyway, I have one more cup of this left, and I’m certain I’ll enjoy it.
And that’s another matcha gone! (81) :O I try to drink one cup a day (a big one with 2 scoops!) and only keep 4 flavours open at a time to help out with the freshness.
What did I think? I like this – it’s creamy and sweet and enjoyable for times I don’t want to be overwhelmed by flavour (i.e., pumpkin matcha, or bubblegum). Would I get it again? Maybe. There are so many other options out there, but, I would’ve say no to more.
