135 Tasting Notes
Just came down from dinner and poured another cup. I can NOT finish this. I have to lower the rating….
I was thinking it tasted like those honey cough drops, then I read RP’s review and…. Oh god… exactly like Vicks. I have it it my mouth right now…. Someone get it out!
Vicks is menthol. Not kiwi. Not lime. Certainly not ginger.
I was so worried about trying another Tea Forte sample. I just haven’t been enjoying the single-steep samples! Waiting for it to finish brewing, I prepared myself for the worst. Maybe I just don’t like tisanes….
I do though! This tastes super yummy! The orange and mint lingers on my tongue. Scrumptious!
So floral and strong. I’m increasing my rating for this one. It’s so grody outside, but I feel like I’m in Hawaii! Better piping hot than warm. Very earthy.
Final thoughts: I could take a bath in this one.
Burried my nose in this one before starting. Really sweet smelling. I mean REALLY. Ever drink flavor syrup straight? I did once. It’s like that.
Now for the drinking part. Yum! I used a bit too much water so it’s a little weak, but It’s nice! Doing a nice job getting the “Cosmo-not” off of my palate. Doesn’t need sugar folks. It’s plenty sweet by itself!
I’d call it a bitter, hot, cherry coke. The smell reminded me of a stale cocktail. I’m thankful for the sample but this is a big nuh-uh from me. I think I can bring myself to finish the cup, but I really can’t wait to brew something else to wash my mouth out…
Oh my! This is the best coconut tea I’ve had! Not heavy or fake. The aroma struck me as artificial, but the taste is MmmmMMM!
