426 Tasting Notes
Anybody see last night’s Game of Thrones episode?
I don’t know how many times I said the word “No”. Episode 9 historically has always given us a shocker and they have been setting us up for that spefici event, but I was hoping it still wouldn’t happen. Wouldn’t be Game of Thrones without a few moments like that each season.
While I was yelling at the TV, I was drinking this beauty. I was surprised I liked this one so much. I was honestly expecting a generic citrus flavor, but what I actually got was a bright citrus sunshine flavor that I drank down fast and instantly went to the kitchen to cold brew. The papaya is sweet with the green tea rounding out the blend with a grassy feel. Sunshine in a cup is what I kept thinking.
Flavors: Citrus, Grass, Sweet
I have never had a tea with hops in it before. This was a unique experience. Reminded me of the first time I had a beer. You didn’t like it and first but the more you drink it the more you liked it. I thought this one was better cold. Reminded me of a cold beer with a vanilla finish.
Flavors: Hops, Vanilla
We have Episode 9 tonight of GoT! Woohoo! I can’t wait! In the past, we have had shockers on Episode 9. Ygritte’s death, the Red Wedding, our beloved head of the Stark family literally losing his head. . . In honor of GoT this week, I will be reviewing GoT based teas all week besides my typical Tea of the Day.
Today is Wilding White- a white and green tea with peppermint and lemongrass. Very soothing!
I loved the idea of having a gin and tonic tea. But I didn’t get the “tonic” taste. What I did end up with was a delicious lime flavored mate with hints of mint.
Happy Saturday sipping all!
Flavors: Lime, Mint, Tangy
This is a fabulous bagged tea. Sweet and cherry with the sencha giving it such a smooth finish. This isn’t overly sweet. Just the right amount. Hot it was fantastic but brewed up as an iced tea. . .This was pure cherry bliss!
Yet again, the horror geek in me is coming out. This tea made me think of iced tea for the summer days. . .which makes me think of swimming. . .which makes me think of. . . Jaws. Strangely this is how my brain works 90% of the time. Ha!
Flavors: Cherry, Sweet
