866 Tasting Notes
I received this as a sample in my last order. Well I needed a nice pick-me-up yesterday (yes I’m back logging) so I thought I’d give this a try. The smell was slightly tart and was so delicious! The flavor was full of creamy, lime goodness. The only complaint I had was that it left a bad aftertaste. I would definitely order this again :]
This morning has been interesting… I’m attempting to make a raw tomato bread and my blender wasn’t big enough to hold all of the ingredients so I had to get creative and blend everything separate. Ugh. Let’s hope it turns out.
I needed something to relax with and for me matcha is as relaxing as it gets. I love sipping out of my little bowl :] This smells amazing! It’s more of a raspberry candy smell though, like most of Red Leaf’s fruit matchas. The flavor is light and sweet. To me the raspberry is very juicy and natural tasting. Very nice :] The sweetness of the fruit blends so well with the matcha. MMMmmm :]
Thanks Finn88! Well the first time I tried this it was waaaayyy strong. So I cut the brewing time and I’m hoping it’s a little better. Well it’s a little better, but it still has a weird aftertaste. I can get the cola and cherry flavor but the aftertaste is just breaking the deal for me :[ Maybe this will have to be tried as an ice tea or something. More experimenting is to be done! I’m determined to like this tea.
Thanks Ze_Teamaker! I’m having a serious laundry day and I saw the word ‘chocolate’, So I thought eh, why not? The smell of this lovely brew is very minty and herbal. That is exactly the flavor too. Except as it cools I’m getting more and more little hints of the dark chocolate. I really can’t decide if I like this or not. It’s got so much going on with it. I just can’t decide if I like the chamomile and chocolate together…. Hmmm….
When I saw that this tea had pine needles in it, it gained my interest. I did think that this was going to have a stronger pine needle taste to it but it’s actually quite mellow. The flavor is kind of buttery and has a crisp, outdoors thing going on. This tea reminds me of sitting in my tent waiting for the rain to stop then going outside into the crisp, cool, fresh air.
