2831 Tasting Notes
Sipdown! Didn’t really taste like mocha to me, but I did enjoy it mixed with an almond/coconut milk combination. And there was just enough sweetness that I didn’t need to add anything additional to it (but I wouldn’t call it overly sweet). I might pick up more of the matches at some point for smoothies, but I have to finish off the Red Leaf ones I still have first. Also, I’ll see how the vanilla is – in terms of flavouring, this one was pretty underwhelming.
I dislike putting herbals in my travel mugs because they tend to “go bad” more quickly than regular teas, which can cause smells since I don’t always have time to wash my Timolinos immediately. However, I really wanted some Apple Custard, so did so anyhow. Which was okay, except that you really lose out on the aroma when drinking from a travel mug, and that’s half of the experience with this tea (and many others). It was still good though.
Sipdown! Got a sample pack of this in my recent DavidsTea order (in which I bought another Timolino because retail therapy, to be honest). Anyhow, I remain not a fan, even though it was my fault that I wasn’t thinking and dumped the entire packet into my mug, overleaping it by about double, so it was quite potent. I just don’t care for the overly floral aroma and flavour, though once appropriately diluted it’s not too horrible.
Thanks… Sil? Cavocorax? MissB? I actually have no idea who I got this from, though I think it came via Sil at some point. Either way, it was on my wish list (and probably has been for 2-3 years!), so it’s awesome to try it, thank you whoever let me have a cup’s worth! (So, this is also a sipdown, since I used it all up).
Another tea that I’m impressed with, although I don’t like it quite as much as Buttermilk Lemon. The smell is somewhat intoxicating, wonderfully sweet and honey-like, slightly floral, and the flavour is quite honeyed and delicious. Unfortunately, not much pear to speak of, but the honey flavour paired with the mild but tasty black base is a nice combination. I would like to see that honey flavour in other combos, actually – it’s unique. Thanks again mystery swapper! :P
Thanks for letting me sample this one, Sil! I actually really quite like it. There’s a creaminess to it, and an almost custardy lemon flavour. Not strongly lemony at all, though, which is kind of nice. Really pleasant base tea and lingering creamy/custardy aftertaste. I’d like to get my hands on more of this at some point, I think. Delicious.
