1290 Tasting Notes
This was good. So soothing.
For a long time I was not a fan of Keemums at all. Recently though, I dunno, I’ve been actually craving it!
There were some light creamy notes, with a hint of smoke and cigars, but not in the way I find Assams get. No this was sweeter with an almost candied finish. Not bad!!
First of all, why are there only two tasting notes besides mine on this tea?! Isn’t this the one that everyone was raving about last year? this and the caramel one???
Or is it just me that can only see two notes?
Heck I can’t even see my own and I know I wrote one because I ranted about how it was a bit too floral and not chocolatey enough for my tastes.
Anyhow, I mixed this into a smoothie today with banana, avocado, kiwi, milk, ice, and a few splashes of OJ. Oh my goodness this is so good. A little zingy, a LOT creamy, topped off with a terry’s chocolate orange finish. Oh and a little sugar, since the “creamy” was a little overpowering. Not ideal but what can ya do. Anyhow, I ended up with a cup of…. well, YUM does not cover the bases here folks. Seriously.
Many thanks to Christina for my sample!!
This was quite delish. I underleafed a little because oolong can be a little heavy for me sometimes and I was so in the mood for something a tad lighter.
And it turned out great. I enjoyed the light coconut flavour, but it didn’t overtake the oolong notes either. Rather perfect for my mood!
I really like the crispness, and the slight floral aftertaste. Yummmm!
My only concern is that it wasn’t as smooth as I would prefer, so I ended up not steeping a second time.
This was just what I needed today. Yum. Very lemony, in an herbal sort of way. It feels cleansing.
The spices are nicely blended with the lemongrass to create a cooling and refreshing taste that I think would do well iced.
Also, I didn’t do this as a latte but it had that feel to it even though I only added a bit of milk!
Oh yum. It might be a tad weak, but I really don’t mind. It still packs a flavour punch!
Also, I noticed that cacao only stays fresh for a few months before losing a ton of potency. One of those that are best to keep in small quantities and refresh often.
Anyhow, the flavour is quite nice. I love the cocoa/strawberry hybrid. It’s nice and light for a dessert tea, but tasty enough that I keep going back for more! without any sugar!
I’ll definitely restock this at some point. Unless they come out with a blueberry version, at which point I’ll be all about that…
I totally forgot about this one in my cupboard!! how did that happen?! Oh well, spring is here and I am getting back into my greens and oolongs again, finally. There was awhile where I was so not interested. What a relief!
Anyhow, I oversteeped it by about thirty seconds. Not so good. Must remember that this does not follow typical 52teas protocol…
I’ve had this both iced and hot now. Iced, it’s just a regular ol’ black iced tea. Not bad, but nothing special. Even with a bit of sugar.
Hot, it was a bit better. I could actually taste peach!! Yeah!
Very mild peach, but it was there. Overall it was pleasant but I’m docking it a bunch of points because I was really looking forward to peach/mango and it’s barely there at all.
Too bad I haven’t got enough left to make kombucha.
The dreaded head cold got me!!! Noooooooo.
This is especially troublesome because I have a phone interview this afternoon. For a job I really do need but it’s in the wrong city. I enjoy working in the city (seriously, I’ve thought long and hard about this, it really is a thing for me, for many reasons).
So I’ve generally turned down opportunities to work in the suburbs. Except now I need the cash to tide me over and this job is related to my field. Thankfully it’s only a three month contract.
Ugh. What to do!?
Anyhow, as usual I don’t make this delicious tea nearly often enough, and again, as usual I’ve drained my mug faster than a kid with a milkshake. So many levels of delicious.
I’m impressed that I can actually taste it through my stuffed up nose.
