2664 Tasting Notes
Another Tea Festival split purchase. Not bad, but unremarkable, with the same strawberry-papaya combo commonly seen in “strawberry” green blends. Sigh.
ETA: Retroactively calling this a sipdown (975) because I don’t think I really need to have any more of this. Too common of a flavour profile.
Sipdown! 977. Gotta make sure these T By Daniel teas are ready to visit Raritea!
As stated in both previous notes, this both smells and looks like DT’s Forever Nuts. And the ingredients are pretty much the same. I think it’s safe to say that T by Daniel is probably just another tea-reseller. Sigh. One day, I’ll learn. At least I like Forever Nuts, therefore enjoy this tea. I’m just disappointed in getting this blend from yet another company.
Blar. Was going to leave a short review of this one since I thought I had previously reviewed it, but I guess it’s another tea hiatus victim. Anyhow, it’s not a favourite, though it’s not too bad either. Soft ginger (like in gingerbread), a few other spices, and a nice green base. Another one that will probably be relegated to travel mugs to finish it off. It is nice, though, that I dug it out in the appropriate season!
Another tea shared with my boyfriend’s mom. I don’t think she was as much a fan of it as I am, but that’s ok. Regretting a bit that I only got one infusion out of it, though, since it was pretty late in the evening and she must have discarded the tea before I went upstairs. Ah well. Creamy apple yum.
Pro-tea-n latte with this one today… but I managed to curdle the protein powder! :( I guess I hadn’t ever put it in such hot tea before? (I was in a hurry to get out the door). Whoops. Although it was just a bit of curdley stuff on the top, and they were congealed enough to kind of chew… so it was like denatured-protein cheese? Haha. Either way, I’ll try not to do that again, because it’s much tastier made properly.
Shared this with my boyfriend’s mom yesterday while celebrating the first Sunday of Advent. Since she likes this sort of tea (hibiscus blends, Christmas-themed blends), it was a hit :) It was pretty neutral for me – I tasted sour hibiscus and cloves, and while it certainly tasted Christmassy, I’m not too sad it’s gone! We didn’t bother resteeping, as it was in a teapot and I think it would have been pretty weak. Good Christmas-themed blend, though.
