2367 Tasting Notes
Another unlogged yet consumed tea (in fact, I may have drank all of this, and yet have no notes to show for it. Sigh.) I do recall enjoying this one, though not as much as DavidsTea’s Salted Caramel. The oolong base was great, though – I wouldn’t mind more flavoured dark oolongs instead of blacks!
Sipdown! But another fake one, because it’s really just a sipdown of my 2 oz. bag, and I’ve already even opened the 4 oz. one. The leaves were pretty broken for this cup, given that it was the bottom of the bag, so it’s verging towards astringent (I also probably overleafed because of that), but it’s still chocolatey orange goodness. Apparently, like many other people, I have a strong preference for autumn/winter-themed teas…. yum.
Sipdown! Another tea that was never my favourite, because when I thought peach oolong, I thought PEACH oolong, whereas this plays much more strongly on the natural peach notes in the oolong, just amplifying them. It’s still a great tea, but a peach flavour more along the lines of what was in Peach HoppiTea would have been preferable for me.
Opinion remains about the same on this one – although I can taste a bit of the tamarind flavour (and can definitely smell its tanginess in the bag!), I’m not sold on it. The base is ok, and it’s a pleasant enough cup to drink, but the flavouring is too subtle. Also, it’s entirely possible that a tamarind-flavoured tea is not something I’d enjoy anyways, given that I associate tamarind primarily with a delicious sauce used for samosas. Anyhow, a few more cups of this one to sip down; it’s not one I plan to still have in 5 years, haha.
… I should have had a note about this one, as I’ve tried it once previously, but… apparently not. I wasn’t a big fan of it the first time I tried it, and I’m still not. Perhaps it would be better with some sugar, but I don’t particularly feel like adding anything to it. It certainly tastes kind of like creamy root beer, and it’s 1000% better than the DT version, but I’m starting to think that there’s an ingredient in root beer that’s too licoricey for my liking, as that’s how my brain is interpreting one of the flavours in here. So, not a fan of this one. Consequently will refrain from rating, since there’s nothing wrong with it.
Ohhhh yum yum yum. Got some of this when it was reblended, because of course I need ounces upon ounces of eggnoggy teas. This isn’t a super flavourful tea – the base is quite prominent and vegetal/beany, and the creaminess/pralines only comes out after the beanies fades. I don’t think I like this as much as regular Creamy Eggnog (which is fine), but it’s still really delicious. Although I really ought to store it better…
