Stopped by my semi-regular Caribou Coffee this morning. I’ve tried their teas a few time and was NOT impressed; the Irish Breakfast and Jasmine were pretty dreadful. So I decided to go for something new today and it paid off. This was way, way better than the other teas of theirs that I’ve tried, and was actually pretty good in its own right. Not bitter at all, full of juicy sweetness, and not too tart like some mango teas I’ve tried. Kind of want to buy a box.
Also, both of our hot water dispensers are down at work, so I can’t make tea and it’s driving me nuts.
Backlogging this one… tried this for the first time last week with skim milk. I’m not sure if they use their own chai mix, but it was way spicier than the Tazo blend Starbucks uses. I definitely like it, although I was a bit surprised at first. I wish I’d had a chance to try it hot because that’s usually how I drink the Tazo chai and then I could truly compare the two. I think when I’m in the right mood I would prefer the spicier blend from Carabou—it was definitely a nice change!
I’m still stuck at Caribou because I don’t get internet at my place until Thursday, so I grabbed another cup. This one is decent for a mint tea, which I usually don’t drink – I just don’t think there is that much delicacy to them. It’s fine for what it is, very minty. There’s maybe a hint of cinnamon, but it’s all but hidden by the mint.
Nothing special. Rich and dark, with a little bit of maltyness. Pretty standard as far as blacks come. It’s not very strong, especially considering the water was so hot it still burned me after sitting 15 mins. Decent with a pack of sugar and a splash of milk. It helps keep me warm in this icebox of a coffee shop.
