86 Tasting Notes
I was actually quite surprised about how good this was. Notes of vanilla come through strongly, but (sadly) the chocolate chips are less noticeable. Since this was a sample, I am probably going to get more of this next time I place an order.
I am not enjoying work today, simply because I would rather be at home watching Game of Thrones all day. My fiance and I watched it like all weekend, WE CANNOT GET ENOUGH (still on season 1 though).
Anyway… had this as a sample from my last order and have finally gotten around to tasting it. It actually smells like chocolate and banana. Taste wise, I notice the chocolate flavor first, followed by the banana. I bet this is how a Bluth Frozen Banana tastes.
I don’t even know what to say about this, other than I don’t taste apple. I taste rose mostly…. and I’m not crazy about that.
The way this tea smells in the bag is woody, with a lingering of sweetness. There is also a smokiness that reminds me of a fireplace or the way the air smells after firing a gun. The taste is incredibly unique. The first flavor I noticed was a slightly sour cherry taste that blended smoothly with the smoky, woody flavors I expected.
I think it perfectly captures this character… Maybe I should rewatch ‘A Scandal in Belgravia’
Once again, can’t have mint. So I gave this one to my mom. Here is what she had to say:
“It’s good, but it doesn’t have much going for it flavor wise besides the peppermint, so it’s a little plain. I feel like it needs an additional flavor to balance out the peppermint.”
Well, I’m sick. Which is why this review is late and very short. It’s perfect timing since I leave for Japan on the 27th :(
This smells and tastes almost exactly like the butterbeer at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Delicious!!
The blueberry flavor is quite prominent, but I get a little less cotton candy flavor from this than I did from the cotton candy black tea on the first day. The gunpowder base was certainly interesting. Kind of unexpected, but very good.
Once again, not a huge lemon fan, so I was a little disappointed when I opened this tea. But I was pleasantly surprised with the taste. The lemon was not overwhelming by any means. Instead, it’s much more subtle than I expected it to be, and paired well with the chun mee green tea. The tea has a pretty citrus-y flavor that isn’t overwhelmingly lemon.
The taste of this tea reminds me of chocolate pudding. It’s really good, very chocolatey. Black base doesn’t overpower the chocolate flavor.
When I opened this, I unfortunately was not incredibly excited about it. Kind of an odd flavor. It tastes alright… The lime flavor comes through nicely. It actually does remind me of jello. Not really a flavor I prefer when it comes to tea, though.
