291 Tasting Notes
I ate. one of the marshmellows before brewing – kind of a mistake – very spicy! 4 min, 190F I think I may be making my brew of this too strong lately as this has been overwhelmingly spicy.
-too spicy – overpowers
-added suga and milk – too much, now milk tea w/weak flavor, but still pretty spicy
-added more brewed tea to mug and I finally think I hit the right ratio of tea to milk
-still too spicy, but milk does smooth it out some and I do find a small amount of chocolate under the spice
-this is a different bag than my original. I just seems like there is more red pepper flakes in this than the other bag. I need to find a better ratio to fully enjoy the tea because I’m not liking it nearly as much as I did before. :( I’m dropping the rating a little to reflect the undesirable level of spice I seem to be getting currently.
Flavors: Chocolate, Spicy
I’ve noticed that a lot of my reviews are pretty short. Unfortunately, this won’t be any different.
I just wrote one line. “grapefruit-y and ginger” I remember that this was thinner bodied than I expected, but that all flavors were present.
There are large pieces of grapefruit/ginger though and present/absence of those will affect the brew. I did enjoy eating the ginger afterward!
Flavors: Ginger, Grapefruit
Thanks to Daylon R Thomas for this tea!
Westren tonight as I’m feeling lazy. 2tsp, 180F
I like that this tea is nicely balanced. The cinnamon doesn’t build like mint and get overwhelming. Fruity, cinnamony, sort of warmth. Not spicy, just warming. Fruity cinnamon reminds me of pie somehow. Okay, now I want pie.
White base came through in mouthfeel more than anything.
I got three solid and consistent steeps out of the tea.
Probably not something I’d order myself, but I was glad to try it.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Fruity, Thick
I had this today at work and it reminded me of the worst artificially tasting hazelnut creamer for coffee. I couldn’t finish it and decided to get rid of the rest. The flavor doesn’t work. Unfortunately, I bought a lot of this tea. I can’t see myself finishing anymore though. Dropping my rating since it’s become undrinkable.
Flavors: Artificial, Hazelnut
