866 Tasting Notes
Thank you to Amanda for sending me this sample! I finally have some time to myself to catch up on the samples people have sent me.
This tea smells wonderful! Hmm. Maybe I used too little tea to the amount of water? Or temperature.. but anyways it was a bit weak but it was still pretty tasty! It reminds me of a tea from The Tea Grotto. It has a light fruity flavor but you can still taste the green tea base. I really like it. I like the mellowness of it.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for this sample :]
When I opened the bag it smelled tart like cranberries! In a good way of course. It made my mouth water. It’s not tart like I thought it would be, it’s actually mellow and sweet. I can taste the rooibos working with the berry flavor. It’s pretty good though. After the few first sips I added a pinch of sugar and I feel like it brought the berry flavor out a bit more.
So after my cola matcha experience I had to go for another interesting flavor. Bubblegum matcha! Here is the link:
This morning I actually got a chance to make some. Seriously the water couldn’t heat up fast enough.. This matcha tastes exactly like bubblegum. No weird flavors going on here. It’s sweet and I feel like it works well with the matcha’s natural sweetness. After the first few sips I let the rest of it cool so I could try it at a lower temperature. It would be even better iced! At the cooler temperature it brought out the bubblegum a little bit more. It was nice :]
If you are feeling adventurous or in the need of something sweet I would recommend this matcha. This one is probably my new favorite and just might become the “must have” in my matcha collection :]
So here is the link for you one more time:
Go enjoy some bubblegum matcha! :D
I don’t know why I didn’t review this the first time I drank this. But this is good :) I got this as a sample but it lasted a while! To me the flavor is a bit weak but it’s still enjoyable. Kind of earthy and sweet. Glad I got to try it but I think I will stick to my other company :)
I was cautions when I bought this tea. Cherry teas can either love me or hate me. This one… Slightly dislikes me. I want to say it’s kind of a fake cherry taste, like cough syrup… But in a strange way I kind of like it. It’s mellow though. There is a hint of rose.. but maybe it’s not my favorite… Mm no.. maybe play around with the steeping times?
I got this tea in a sample pack. Today I thought I’d give one a try. The color of the tea turns kind of a murky green, which made me nervous about the taste. But it’s actually really good! The orange flavor is not fake at all. I feel like someone squeezed a slice into my cup. It’s sweet but also a little bitter. It has a very, very light floral note to it, but it’s still hard to notice. I was actually impressed by this tea :)
