173 Tasting Notes

When I finally got the bag opened (the crimping was REALLY close to the seal, and I’m not quite awake yet :P), the smell of the dry leaf was amazing…smelled just like caramel pecan.

Prepared, I’m not tasting cheesecase. I taste the caramel, which is nice and sweet. I taste the oolong, which is, admittedly, not my favorite base. I’m not sure what I’m tasting, actually. I’ve never had roasted mate before.

So, everything must be blending together. This was a short steep time for me at 2:30, so next time, I’ll try longer.

I think this is getting better as it cools. Also, I REALLY need to figure out how many oz this mug holds. I have no idea.

It’s like a kick to the head, especially on a morning that isn’t going so well. WOW…it’ll wake you up…who needs coffee??

Very spicy, a little heat.

Today, I used twice as much tea, and I’m getting a lot of flavor with it. I think this is good…still not like the description, but a nice light tea. I still agree with the decision to go with a green tea on this one.

I think you liked this one way more than me :)

Yeah, I saw your review. I have a tea that I think tastes just like cough syrup (and 4 oz of it too…not happy about a minimum of 4 oz), but I like this one.

Opened up this package today. The first thing I smelled was the marshmallow root. It was very prominent. After brewing the wet leaves smell like lemon. But, in the cup, I don’t think either one is overpowering. I had a 2-minute steep, which may have been too short, but there is a blend of the flavors. The base is good…I don’t know what a hair needle is, but the base is not overpowering either. I think everything is a good blend.

First time I’ve tried this since buying it during the close of Butiki madness. I have 2 words to describe this tea (which I added some liquid stevia to, since I like most of my teas that way):

Strawberry Quik

That’s exactly what it tastes and feels like. It FEELS like flavored milk, and I know I didn’t put any in. Instead of buying an overpriced soda while my son plays dodgeball at the rec center, I made a thermos of this tea and brought it with me. It was such a great idea!

I really wish that I wasn’t made to buy 4 oz of it in order to have it…because I’m never going to finish it. It has a really medicinal flavor. Even sweetened.

Nice and light…I like the green tea. I think black would have been too overpowering.

I was a little afraid to try this tea before…I ‘created’ this tea, and didn’t want to find out if I had screwed it up.

Pleasantly, it tastes pretty much like I wanted it to. I can taste everything, and I really like it.

Allergies are in full swing, and messing with everything, so I went with a stronger flavor, but not chai, tea this morning.

I also went with a shorter steep time, and that seems to have benefited this tea. Although this tea can taste medicinal, the shorter steep time helped with that. It now tastes more like how I thought it would. Still not sure about the fig…the only fig I know is from a Fig Newton, but it has that sort of note somewhere. Mostly cherry, though.
