718 Tasting Notes
Sipdown/backlog: finished this up this morning on my way to the doctor. I over milked this one today, but it is actually really good. It’s more chocolate and sweet than anything else, but there is a bit of the graham cracker there.
If I do a DT order sometime, I’d probably get a small bag of this.
It is rich and hearty, and great on a cold day like today.
Another tea I shouldn’t be drinking while I’m sick, as I am only able to detect some spices, the same way I was with the Carrot Cake tea, but I think that this one has a bit of a thicker mouthfeel to it. But right now my tongue is all coated and my sense of taste is greatly reduced…
I can only imagine how delightful this will be when I’m better. Trying not to drink all my Butiki while I’m sick, but…it calls to me. So I obey every now and again, and logically resist the urge the rest of the time.
Sipdown…used the last of the tea in the foil packet from OMGsrsly this morning…probably overleafed this one this morning, but then there wouldn’t have been enough for another cup, I don’t think, so there’d be a cup that was underleafed.
Maybe it’s me sick, or maybe it’s my preparation, but this one isn’t especially anything to me today. Maybe if I did it gongfu style, I’d appreciate it more, but I lack the equipment right now.
I probably shouldn’t rate this one just yet, seeing as I’m sick and all, and fairly certain I’m sure I am not getting the full taste and subtleties of this tea. I can perceive a nice bit of spice, and a smooth base, but that’s about it right now. Not to say it is bad, because it is good, but my buds are off from being sick, and I’m just not getting much from the tea now. But I have a whole ounce (yay!) to devour, and I can tell from what I can taste now with reduced taste buds that I will really like this one when I can taste it properly. :)
Ummm, glad I only got 12g of this one. It smells deliciously divine, but there is a strange artificial almost medicinal taste to it. It’s similar to Red Velvet Cake, but also, I think the cherry in this added to that is what is giving a medicinal taste.
I have a small amount that I will play with at home, as this tasting is based on a TTG from the store, and it may be a different experience at home for me.
But…so far a fail.
