427 Tasting Notes
So this was a sample that was included in the last shared ordered I had with Marzipan & Liquid Proust. I should have included it in one of their boxes. This sounds delicious and I wanted to like it so bad. . .but my arch enemy struck again! So alas, this tea just wasn’t for me. Made me sad. I wanted a sprinkled birthday cake filled cup of love. Instead I got a funky weird woodsy taste cuppa that I could barely take a drink out of.
Comment on my blog and I’ll draw a random winner. This is basically a full ounce with a tsp missing. . .I’ll include other goodies too!
Being a huge fan of green tea, I was excited to dive into this one. I really liked it. Sweet green tea with hints of a more veggiel/earthy finish. And I got to break out my gaiwan. Too fun!
I love discovering new teas. Hitting up Etsy in my spare time has been a lot of fun. But this tea, just isn’t for me. This tea has a weird smoked flavor. Like a smoked turkey flavor with a sweet twist. I really can’t explain it. The tea is aged in cranberry so I’m wondering if the aging process has added in a weird factor. This isn’t even a good weird. It just tastes off. I couldn’t even finish the cup. I dumped it and didn’t try it even cold. This was just a no for me.
Thank you again Shae! This is one of the best teas I have ever had cold brewed. Sweet, slightly floral, citrus twist, smooth black tea base. Very well balanced.
Flavors: Bergamot, Jasmine, Mint
2nd sample I had from my order from Amitea Organics. This one is perfect for the spring weather. Lemon herbal goodness with a honey twist. Super happy with this.
Flavors: Honey, Lemon
This is a interesting blend. This blend literally has 13 different ingredients. I was a bit scared when I was steeping this one. It smelled like a sweet spicy blend. First sip, I was hooked. This is really good. This tastes like a sweet cinnamon treat with hints of mint and other spices along the way. There is also an earthy quality. Really good. I really recommend this one.
I’m brewing more of this up for my trip to go see NKOTB today. Yep. NKOTB. My bestie and I saw them last year and it was a lot of fun. Vanilla Ice even came out to sing Ice Ice Baby. I’m hoping we have another surprise guest tonight.
Enjoy your day!
