1311 Tasting Notes
Second cup out of this sample, and again I could not finish my cup. Is it just me? this tasted nothing like mango, but more like… sour juice? the black base didn’t even make an appearance, except for some strange astringent note that mixed badly with the oddly sweet/sour part that I think was the mango.
I think I prefer this without milk??! an assam without milk, it just feels so wrong!
It’s crisp and fresh, floral and just a little malty. With all those letters attached, it’s no wonder why :)
A la dairy, it’s a little smoky, and I’m not sure I like that.
The kind gent from Capital Teas gifted this to me and I plan to cherish every spoonful. Though I need to indulge a few more cups before deciding on a rating.
Whaaaaaat, I still have some of this left over?! I thought it was sipped down ages ago. So I made a cup for Dad and I. Not bad, after all this time! Helps that I actually had it in a tin. Significantly less orange flavour, but the chocolate is still there, yay! :)
I needed the pick me up. I’m a little depressed tonight because I can’t make it out to my floor hockey game due to a professional committment, and I’ve been looking forward to it since last Tues. Le sad :(
Thanks Sil and Kittenna for this sample!! I really enjoyed the cup. Seriously.
A little bit of caramel, but mostly orange. Like marmalade. Very rindy and sweet, sans sugar!
I’ve had an orange kind of day. We made a cake for Mums bday… and she loves marmalade so it was an eggless, orange infused cake with marmalade/vodka glaze. Looks purty but we haven’t tried it yet. Fingers crossed that I didn’t mess it up!!
Anyhow, I am seriously considering getting more of this one :D
This flavour profile, it is SO FAMILIAR! What is it?? I can’t place what I’m tasting. Orange? but there is no rind in the blend. Maybe the essence of?
Definitely pear and blackberry, though I’m not sure how those would be tropical. Lime is certainly there. Must be the combination that gives it a fruity runt candy like taste. Oh oh!!! wait a second. It’s FRUIT PUNCH BUBBLICIOUS!!! YES! Ha, I beat you, you evasive flavour that reminds me of childhood. Wow. First time ever, I can truly say that I’m looking forward to making an iced tea. Gotta say, I’m a little giddy!
Trouble is, I’m not sure if its the throwback to the eighties that’s seducing me, or the actual flavour itself. Thus, I’ll let things marinate for a bit, and try it iced before rating.
Maybe I’ll make popsicles! :P
