4943 Tasting Notes
L is for… Lavender Coconut Macaron!
Um, oops. I totally forgot that I had already used this tea for “D” day. Ahahaha. Oh well, I picked it because I had instant lavender cravings when I saw it. I am just so stupidly into this tea. And one of the best parts? I get whiffs of the lavender from the infuser all the time in the kitchen. It’s just so good.
L is for… Lemongrass Milk Pudding!
This isn’t my favourite tea, but I am a big fan of the coconut/lemongrass combination in general, and this one works fairly well for me. Don’t really taste anything beyond creamy lemongrass, but that’s fine with me. This tea, however, does not resteep well at all (not that many greens do, but this one is particularly bad).
L is for… Lime Pear Fluff!
Forgot to note that I lost another day (just drank resteeps yesterday) so am now 3 days behind where I should be. Oh well.
Anyways, I’m a little shorter on “L” teas than I thought, but happened to locate this tea when I was pawing through my AQ2T stash the other day, and set it aside about a week early so I could have it today. Definitely hit the spot – creamy, fluffy lime, not really any pear but that was never really an issue.
L is for… Lemon Cayenne Cleanse!
Ehh, this is a very lemony-flavoured tea, a little bit on the bitter side, and not too much else. I didn’t taste any cayenne and am ok with that. I’m not too interested in “cleanse” type teas anyhow, so would prefer a different type of lemon tea, ideally with creaminess.
J is for… Jasmine Peony!
Yay, a straight tea (in my estimation, anyhow)! One that, once I found it, was really appealing today for whatever reason. And it satisfied – a nice, light jasmine infusion with some pleasant hay-y notes. I believe I like Verdant’s jasmine white better (was it jasmine silver needle?) but that could have been because of the base. However, this was pretty good.
J is for… Jolly Jellybean!
Unintentional that I picked two “Jolly” teas for today. This tea was mild and pleasant today, vaguely fruity and creamy but nothing in particular. I’d had a recollection that it was supposed to taste like strawberry, but the flavour notes suggest I’m wrong (my tastebuds were no help in validating my memory). There was only one jellybean left in the bag; I left it for the last cup (to brew or as a snack, who knows).
J is for… Jolly Jammy Linzer!
A little short on “J” teas too, and didn’t want to go digging, so I grabbed this one. Unfortunately, I recall absolutely nothing about it today. I know my first attempt was too heavy on the yucky medicinal rooibos flavours, but if those were present this time, they weren’t as apparent. All I can really say is that it was drinkable, and I drank it. Lots left, better review to come later.
