135 Tasting Notes
I don’t like you very much. You’re all weird and red and tart. That’s not what I was expecting at all :(
So a woman walks into a tea shop…..
I was chillin in Chinatown. I was totes excitey because I knew I’d find tea. And I found a ton of it. Most of what I brought back from SF? Tea. And some tins that got dented in transit.
When I bought this, I was being rushed out the door by family. I pretty much chose the two teas closest to me at the time. After picking apple I was pretty sure I’d made a mistake. Wtf apple? Artificial apple is awful…. “I think I’ve made a huge mistake”
I tried this tea in San Fran but it’s hard to get a good brew in a hotel room. Oh my geezyweez! Strong apple flavor. Not artificial tasting at all. Sweet and yummy! Getting my day off to a fantastic start. I don’t drink a ton of green tea. Now I will!
Busiest work night of my life. At one point, it felt like someone had removed my brain, and replaced it with bees. A lot of bees.
So after all of that silly awful business, I went to Whole Foods to grab a new tea. I love the melon candies I get at the Asian supermarkets, so I figured this would be rad. Was I right? Totally! This is yumziez.
First cup was pure. No sugar/cream. So clean tasting! I then went to brew a whole pot with a tiny bit of sugar. Beautiful flavor. It tastes really fresh. The taste lingers too, which is nice!
Found this hiding in a drawer at my house. I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’d never made a green chai before. It sounded odd, but with a try. It smelled so good out of the pouch! I was disappointed though. It smelled plenty strong but the taste was pretty weak. I’ve brewed several chips and I still can’t get it right.
I know this can’t be my fault, because I’m perfectly perfect in every way.
I’ll keep it here at work. I’m building up a collection of tea bags in my locker. It’s too hard to brew loose leaf here!
I did a REALLY short steep. Think 30 seconds. So much better :)
It’s a little better now. I can taste it more in the back of my throat than anything.
After brewing, the smell was still strong. I’m having trouble actually TASTING it in the tea though. It is so subtle. I’ll have another cup with some sugar and see if that brings it out at all, but on its own I’m underwhelmed.
Backlogging from work last night. My first cup I had with a single splenda and one single serve creamer. Toooo sweet with that splenda but still super yummy!
My second cup just plain. SUPER yummo. It was really way too hot in the hospital, so for my third cup I put it over ice with cream and sugar. Feh. Liked it better hot.
All in all though I’m glad I bought a box!
Oh my the fragrance is intoxicating! As good as, or better than, Mango Tango.
Oh hot hot hot! Hot! And… bitter? No, strange first sip. It tastes fine. Nothing really special about it though
