3120 Tasting Notes
Um…. yes. Very yes. Maybe not quite as tasty as I was hoping, but it’s pretty darn good. Excited to compare it to the other version, which I believe Sil prefers.
Without being sweet, it is very… sweet, and full, and tastes rather like a salted caramel. The oolong base is not overly noticeable, though this would be a significantly different tea without it, I’m sure. I can see myself getting a bit tired of this though, because it is very rich. Definitely will have to treat it as a “treat” tea.
Thank you so much to Sil for passing this along, which was originally from MissB, I believe!
Well. You can’t get much more accurate than the title of this tea. That’s pretty much exactly what it is. And exactly how it tastes. Floral/in-your-face tropical. Too much for me, personally. This is also a tea I fed to my sick boyfriend, though I don’t think I added honey. He just wanted something hot. I had a re-steep, and it was so very floral…
Backlog & sipdown!
Actually made up the full pitcher of this the other day, but I find that it’s far too weak if I used the recommended amount of water, so it got about half instead. It wasn’t bad, but mostly just tasted like an unsweetened Nestea (lemon black). Can’t really say what would make it “pink” in the first place, so I’m not sure what I was expecting, haha.
Decent, overall, but the iced tea sachets are generally not convenient for me.
Fed some of this to the boy when he was all sick. He thought it was ok (dosed with honey). I had the re-steep and it actually was better than I remember, kind of a nice kiwi/melon flavour. I just don’t care for flavoured greens, though, so… meh. About 1 cup left of this now.
Oh hey… I’m suddenly at 3001 notes (this one being 3001). Cool! Anyhow, this tea is not my favourite BUT when I’m in the mood for it, it’s glorious. I may even like it better than melon teas with lighter bases (I’m just kind of…. over melon? I’m over a lot of flavours, actually. Haha.) This was good, though, when I had it. One of the few nights where I actually only made a single large mug of tea (instead of 4+ smaller ones).
