1263 Tasting Notes
Yum! I had some misgivings about ordering this tea after reading some of the reviews, and they only had 2oz bags in stock, but I’m happy I did it!
This is strong! My bf said that it made the room smell like cookies, but he wouldn’t try any, that silly butt. I love this malty taste, and the heady aroma. It’s not even bitter.
I was disappointed with this one – probably because I had it at the same time as the Cantaloupe and Cream which just blew me away. It was good, but not exceptional and that was likely because I’m not so into cilantro.
Butiki has so many great teas that it’s better for my wallet this way.
I hope whatshesaid enjoys the rest of this!
Another sample from Shadowfall!
Smells like caramel! Also, surprise, it tastes like caramel too! Rich notes of it in a mellow amber base. I’m not getting any chocolatey notes though but I bet this would be nice with bits of brown sugar.
ETA: This tastes a lot better with a dash of milk. The base is mellowed out further and the caramel steps aside and lets some of the chocolate notes in.
So maybe this isn’t QUITE as awesome as I thought it was yesterday, but I dig the fruity raspberries and creaminess and I’m still getting a bit of sponginess too. For some reason this tastes a bit more tart this time around, yet it’s still sweet. I wonder if I should have mixed the bag up a bit more? Maybe I drank up a lot of the coconut in the top half and am missing it now?
But you heard me – I’m halfway through this bag already! :O
I think I spent $1-2 for this sample so I regret nothing. It’s ok, but it’s not my cuppa. I thoroughly enjoyed it this morning with a hefty amount of milk and sugar, but at the same time if I wanted milk/sugar I could have just started the day with coffee.
I said it tea peeps! Coffee! :O
(It’s funny that I spent so much time trying to tell the difference between Keemum vs Ceylon vs Darjeeling etc but I couldn’t even tell you what kind of coffee I like.)
