1105 Tasting Notes


This is what I drink before bed when I’m not feeling well, and it legitimately seems to not only help my throat but make me feel a little bit better (and sleepier!) all over. The downside? The taste is VILE. I admittedly can’t stand licorice and it’s very prominent in this, but I can’t imagine anybody finding the flavor anything more than tolerable. I put in lemon, a generous amount of honey, and a cough drop, and it’s still kind of gross.

drank Rooibos Mango by Adagio Teas

I probably oversteeped this, but I don’t taste any difference from the other times I’ve had it. The rooibos base isn’t bad, but the mango taste is pretty much non-existent. Drinkable, but disappointing… which is how I felt about all of Adagio’s flavored rooibos sample set, really.

This one’s just all right. It smells nice before its made, but the flavor is unimpressive — you can’t taste the peach! I keep it around for when I’m not feeling well and want something with ginger.

drank Green Tea With Brown Rice by Issine

This one was a gift from my boss at my summer job — he bought some random cheap teas to figure out possible ways of making tea sorbet and completely rejected it. I have very low expectations for teabags that are this cheap ($2 for 20), but this one is surprisingly tasty! I haven’t tried any other teas with rice in them, but I certainly want to.

I haven’t had this one in a while, and it’s better than I remember it being. The second infusion tasted almost as strong as the first!
