I am pretty sure I got this in *Emilie*’s sale boxes, but I’m honestly not 100% sure. This is a clear sign that I have too many samples to go through! Yet I am jonesing for more swaps, sigh.
I cold brewed this, since I don’t really tend to like strawberry hot (unless it’s with some other flavors) and, well, it’s summer, the perfect time for iced tea! Though of course it was 75 and rainy all day. This tea has a nice, fresh strawberry flavor, and there’s something tropical going on too in the background. The ingredients list says pineapple but the description says papaya, curious! Either way, I think it adds a little something special to what might otherwise be a run-of-the-mill strawberry green. The sencha base is also very buttery, and has a very rich mouthfeel! I like this one a lot more than I thought I would, and for the ridiculous price of $5.99 for 4oz I think this might be making its way into my cupboard…
Special Thanks to Tommy The Toad for this one! I got a nice lil package from him today! Woot!
This certainly is CRAZY Dark Brown in color!
I don’t really know why I was thinking it was going to be slightly bitter or super malty…it’s quite different than I expected once I saw how dark it was!
It doesn’t have much for aroma but the taste is pretty good! It’s a nice, solid medium strength black tea with a thick texture. Full bodied and rich, even.
As it cool as room temp for about 2 to 3 minutes it seems to get stronger! Interesting and bold! I like it!
I got this tea as a sample from Emilie and I couldn’t be happier that I did! I am always weary of chais because they always come out super spicy or super cinnamon-y and I am just not a big fan of either of those being overpowering. I do like chai in general, though, so I wanted to give this chai a shot. This chai is AMAZING! The vanilla is super smooth and while the cinnamon and spice flavors are there, they are not overpowering, just complementary to the vanilla and the tea itself. I prepared this chai with a little bit of vanilla soymilk, heated first, and it reminds me perfectly of the chai lattes I used to get working at Barnes and Noble in college. Perfect.
Great tea for breakfast. I dont leave big long tasting notes on teas because I just dont feel the need or want to do so I simply state if I liked the tea or not sometimes I’ll talk about the taste of the tea but usually I’m not a man of many words, thats just the way I do things :) I like this tea steeped strong.
