860 Tasting Notes
Thank you Alphakitty! This is such a pretty tea! I never, ever have luck with black and green blends. Their either too bitter or too weak. Sadly, this came out as too bitter. The aroma is lovely, though. The flavor is still very floral. The one I taste the most is rose followed by lavender. But it’s still bitter :( it would have been amazing if I didn’t ruin it.
Thanks ToiToi! The aroma of this tea is like a freshly baked vanilla cup cake. Brewed it smells like short bread cookies and black tea. Which by the way is the PERFECT snack. The vanilla is actually pretty strong. Most vanilla teas I’ve tried are weak in flavor. This is the best one I’ve tried yet. It’s creamy, smooth, and now I’m craving the short bread cookies on my kitchen table and I can’t have them :( (I’m in a hotel in the middle of Idaho…) Thanks again!!
Thank you ToiToi! This one smells delicious. Lovely fruit notes. Mostly peach. Once it’s brewed the apricot aroma starts to come out. It came out a bit bitter but it is still good. Has a nice fruity flavor. The bitterness goes away and the peach really comes out as it cools.
Also… Yay for my 300th tasting note :D
Thank you Alphakitty! I think rooibos was an excellent choice as the base. It works well with the other flavors. I’m catching light notes of chocolate and banana. It’s not super strong in both flavors but it’s just enough to make it delicious. It makes me think of banana creamies. It’s sweet and has a lovely creamy note to it. I really enjoyed this blend :) thanks again!
