675 Tasting Notes
Had this one iced today. Whether here has been strange for a few days, but by the time I got home for the Gardens today, the sun had finally come out and it was warm, so I opted to try this one finally, iced. It’s a different flavour than Lime Gelato, from DAVIDs, but equally delicious tasting, and I am so glad it is a honeybush, because I can handle that way better than rooibos.
I only have a small sample of this, but I have a larger amount of the Lemon Chiffon, which smells equally tasty to this one. Interestingly, it tastes exactly how it smells, which is pretty rare these days.
I’m glad I finally tried this. Although I do prefer Swampwater over this, it is nice to know I have an alternate caffeine free blend.
Made this to go with my spruced up Salsa Salad kit (I added fresh corn, red bell pepper, avocado, black beans and chicken to the kit). Cilantro always makes me think of either Indian food or Latin/Spanish foods…so I chose this one. It was a nice refreshing cup, better as it cooled off…
I have a little of this left, so thanks to CrowKettle for tossing this one my way.
This is a pretty nice tea. It’s not as strong as say, Divine Temptation from Bayswater, it does still have a light hazelnut and vanilla flavour and warmth, but it is pretty mild and smooth.
I don’t know if it is something to have on hand all the time, or whether I would buy it, but it is nice, and I thank Cavocorax for including this with her samples at the Vancouver meet up/swap.
Had this again today…double steeped for kid’s mug and timolino since it was cool and wet out this morning (though the sun did poke through eventually and warm up some). It was careful on my steep time, and I got a nice earl grey tea with a slight grapefruit taste at the end of the sip. With milk and sugar. I’m sure the milk makes the grapefruit a little less in your face.
I only have about one serving left, and I may bag it and have Starbucks or someone give it the London Fog treatment. :)
I could swear I made a note on this one already, but I guess not, so this is a backlog.
I had it with Singapore Cashew Curry from Noodle Box (take-out) and it was a very nice compliment. I found, that even as a rooibos, it was pretty tasty. I was nervous with the base which is why I opted to share this and get a small sample with our co-op group.
It smells really good, and it is another gorgeous tea. It’s pretty tasty, and more mango tasting than DAVIDs current Mango Lassi. That one tastes more like Buttercream without the white tea base, from the fall collection a few years back. I thought I’d prefer DT one because it is an herbal blend, not rooibos, but I think I like them for different reasons, and I think I may actually like this one better simply because it is more mango-y and the other is more mango and chamomile.
I don’t know if I would regularly stock this one, but it is nice to have a rooibos I like.
