1246 Tasting Notes
Much improved, much improved. Seriously. Milk and honey. Fixes everything. Bonnie! you know how to fix a funny chai lol. Thanks for the tip!
Sil have you tried it that way?! It’s quite good!
Very mild in the spices, but widespread and complex. On the swallow, I can taste chocolate whereas without dairy, all I get is fake sweetness. Yup, I quite like it this way. Not sure if I’m inspired to place an order, as I’d like to try out some other Verdant teas first. Also, it is somewhat limiting as I’d like to be able to enjoy it plain as well. That factor alone lowers my rating a few points.
Update: Now that I’ve finished the cup, there is a cooling sensation almost like menthol. Interesting!
Ugh. I have a headache.
So of course I made a smoothie, what else is there to do!?
Hmph. I can’t taste any of the berry at all. Boo.
First time I used this, it didn’t turn out that great. Thus, I’m letting it settle a bit before making another go at a regular cuppa.
Btw, does anyone know of some fun/interesting web shows? Pretty much just regular tv, posted online/youtube… A friend was asking me about them but I could only think of a few.
Also, does anyone else stream television from the internet? I use CH131.com or tv-links.eu but I’m always looking for options. (that can be viewed from Ontario that is)
I am really liking this. Seriously, it’s good!
Have you ever had a really sweet, I mean naturally sweet, green tea? I’m getting that sort of caramel flavour here, along with another, deeper type of sweetness that extends throughout the sip.
In the middle, there is a slight hint of cocoa and the aftertaste? milk. Very milky.
Interesting, I really like this blend!!
Now that I’m out of the Queen, I’ve been drinking this on its own. Not terrible.
Still about 60g left, but somehow the leaves get used up faster than I expected. They aren’t ctc, but cut up into tiny little squares. Does it take up more room that way? I’d have thought less!
So for today’s cup I steeped 3min 20sec and added chocolate syrup. Maybe I should have added an extra thirty seconds because the overall tea flavor was a little weak. I prefer stout, hardy teas with alot of malt. I find that factor to be hit and miss with blacks. Am I doing something different or are my buds off? Hmmm.
Underwhelming. Similar to a few others I’ve had, but not very intense on the flavour. Compared to Sweet Temptation, this came in a distant second. Not bad, just a little weak! I’m a little spoiled :P
I definitely taste the toffee influence though. Next time I’ll try adding a bit more leaf.
Also, I tried adding milk. That helped make it creamier!
Have there really been no posting notes since I crashed last night? I was so looking forward to reading a few notes before braving the boxing day sales today.
What tea will I choose to keep me functional… I’m thinking a matcha and a black tea. (odd there are no formatting items in my note, why is it in italics)
Oh and I had a cup of Berry Chocolate last night with some vanilla syrup. It was great but I think I’ll try the next one with chocolate. I received the pair in my stocking! :P
I like this!! first time I made this, not so much. But today? it’s quite different.
If you let the RL teas sit for a few weeks, I think it really makes a difference.
The rooibos base is really smooth and comes through more than anything else. Chocolate is in here? Oh yes there it is, hiding in the back! Super mild, but it’s there. I ordered Robust flavouring, next time I think I would go with the higher level. The highest of them all… is there matcha in there?
Now this is a gift for my Aunt, so I only made a few cups. Otherwise, I’d experiment a bit more.
Either way… I will definitely order it again, despite my initial apprehension, now that I know what to expect
What whaaaat! Maple pecan confection in a cup, without any calories?! or additives required????
OK now I know I’m dreaming. This is SO GOOD.
And the best part? I am really enjoying my cuppa luke warm. Most of the time I struggle to finish my cup before it gets cool because I really prefer my teas hot but this time, I was a little worried sipping the hot cup. It was a little too sweet and there wasn’t much flavour overall… but when I came back to it a few min later? Wowsa!!
Maple, oolong, and pecan blend together so seamlessly that I’m already looking forward to my next infusion! The aftertaste has that slight bitterness I find with pecans or walnuts sometimes. I really like that!
Thanks so much for the sample Stacy!!!
Sidenote: SANTA just came to my door. Apparently a neighbour dressed up for the kids and he stopped by to say hi. I got a candy cane out of it. Teehee!
I’m with you on this Sil, not my fave cuppa. Thanks so much for the sample, I’ve been wanting to try this for ages!! but something told me not to order any and I’m glad I listened to my instinct.
It’s too sweet, fruity almost. Reminds me of Stevia. There is a floral aspect mixed in there to and something else I can’t place.
I’ll hold my rating til I try it as Bonnie suggests, with milk and honey.
