621 Tasting Notes
Dude. This definitely smells like something I would absolutely despise, but drinking it, it’s sooooo good!
Today is moveout day for everyone, and now that it’s 3pm, everyone has to be gone, but since I’m here for the summer, I’m just taking my sweet time packing everything up :) So this is such a nice refreshing drink to have as I’m packing all my stuff up, getting ready to move into a different building on tuesday! I still have time :)
I brewed this last night in the fridge. Not as good cold as it is hot, but still a wonderful tea :)
Had this cold brewed because Sil said it was pretty good cold!
It’s decent. Still not one of my favourite teas though.
It has a weird ashy texture in my mouth so I tried to dilute it with water and milk which turned out pretty nice!
It’s definitely a unique tea, but probably something I wouldn’t repurchase.
Oh my gosh wow, this is fantastic cold!
I normally don’t enjoying rooibos teas cold, but this one is different. QueenOfTarts said that she enjoyed this more cold, and I kinda have to agree with her! It’s less woodsy, more creamy chocolate.
Definitely a great tea. Great hot, but even better cold! Thank you SO much VariaTEA for sending me like 50g of this! I’m very very grateful :)
Flavors: Chocolate, Cream, Mint
Why is it that this tea smells like tea fart but tastes like beautiful melon white tea?
Definitely prefer the Golden Honey Dew flavour over this one, it definitely is much stronger. And the white tea I feel is what makes that fart-like scent ahhah
But it tastes wonderful! Just the scent is a bit off putting.
4g/14oz/12hour cold brew
ALSO GRADES ARE POSTED AND I GOT AN A IN FORENSIC ANTHROPOLOGY. A FLAT OUT A.
So another A, A- and a B- comes to a 3.6 gpa which means HELLO DEAN’S LIST.
Dude I’m so happy okay. I worked so hard for these grades and now I can play at the Disney parks all summer long! I definitely feel like I deserved it :)
Also, I went to orientation for the DCP yesterday, and out of 20,000 applications, only 400 students got chosen for the Disneyland College Program. Like wow I feel special. Only 2% got accepted wow.
This tastes really good, it just has such a weird aroma to it.
Like dry, it smells like peach-o’s!! A very summer tea :)
But as I’m drinking it, it has a really odd, rotten peach smell. The taste is good! The smell is just off putting…
In other news, I did my thing at Disney today and AHH DISNEY. I don’t have Traditions and all my introductory orientation whatever stuff till next week which is great! But I think I’m going to have to sell my VidCon ticket because it’s going to clash with training. Like I can give up regular shifts, EASY. But they probably already have my training schedule set in stone so if I don’t show up, that’s going to be a problem. Oh well, maybe next year :(
Ahh nicce guava goodness :) Definitely one that I’ll repurchase next time I find myself at a Fresh & Easy or Whole Foods :) But dang, I love the ones with chia seeds in it already.
ALSO SCREAMING BECAUSE I’M DONE WITH FINALS AND I START WITH DISNEY TOMORROW. Well technically today since it’s 12:21 in the morning
Red Leaf Tea – Sample #10
30 May 2014, side-by-side comparison with Sample #9
Dry: Lighter than #9, almost like a Spring Meadow Green. Has a more leafy dry leaf smell compared to #9
Straight: Almost like a hunter green luquor, with a pale green froth. Not bitter :)
Latte: Ahh it was great straight, and it was just as great as a latte! Definitely finding myself reaching for this mug more than the other :)
Suggested Price: $13
