1562 Tasting Notes
Hot, this was ok. Not great, but ok. Some sips were better than others. I was hoping for more cakey/pastry flavour, which I got maybe a hint of. For the most part, instead I found something more like chai. But not in a pleasing way. All spice, no tea!
As the cup cooled, oh dear that was not cool. Not cool at all!
I’ve never been a fan of chicory, but I find that in some teas it does really well, and not so much in others. Well I guess this is the not so much? Ick. Dislike.
Almost done my sample!!
I’ve been trying to sip down as many teas as possible lately, because I have a bunch of stuff incoming from Butiki and Lupicia. Plus the tea festival is coming up so I expect I’ll end up collecting a bunch there as well.
If I could just find some time to organize my stash, I have a feeling things would go much more smoothly!
This was really good today. Just the right amount of spice, apple, and potato. YUM!!!
I do like the first version of this more, it was closer to what I remember of potato pancakes because the ones I know don’t have apple in them.
I did add a sprinkle of sugar to bring out the background notes. It was a little to much on the cinnamon side until I did that. Glad I still have a small tin left
I really need to leave some tea for sipdowns at the’s boyfriend’s place. I always end up drinking this one since it’s the only one he has that I can drink (mostly he has berg infested ones)
Not that its a bad tea, and I’m not over that often. I’m just annoyed that drinking this one takes away from lowering my stash at home!!! sighs
Crap. One of the kids just saw me say I’m at the “boyfriend’s”. Eeeps!
This was a pleasant enough oolong. Not my favourite though.
As I said in a comment on someone else’s review, I think the kombucha powder just isn’t working for me. I looooove kombucha, but apparently not the powder version.
Also, throwing berry into the mix? ugh. What a weird combo.
I did manage to finish the cup. Lucky it was given to me no charge :D
I went in expecting something awful, after looking at the reviews. But hey, this isn’t so bad! I’m shocked. Maybe all the flavouring went to the bottom of the packet I shared with Kittenna? Actually, it was pretty non-memorable until I added a 1/3 tsp of sugar. That seemed to perk things up a bit. Of course it isn’t a crazy level of flavouring, but I can definitely tell it’s grapefruit, with that slight bitterness that sort of folds right into the sweet aspect, in a way that still manages to make both very apparent.
Actually, based on this cup alone I would definitely consider grabbing more. However, based on reviews, I highly suspect this tea is simply a finicky one, and that I happened to get lucky in my brewing. There are enough leaves for one more cup, so I’ll see what happens with that one.
Also, I’m really enjoying the black/green mix. Great pairing of teas.
