2088 Tasting Notes
A bit too floral of a pear flavour for me. Not terrible, but not great. I’m also not getting any creaminess, which I think would make this tea delicious. I wish Della Terra would do a pear cream tea! (With different pear flavouring from their Perfect Pear.)
Yuck. Not a fan. All I’m tasting is stevia and spice, and it’s making me gag. Not sad that it’s gone. Blech.
Yum. Such a tasty herbal. Much better than rooibos versions. So creamy and chocolatey, with enough mintiness to be refreshing. If only it actually reduced the cravings I’m having for Girl Guide chocolatey mint cookies!!
Sipdown! 870. Finishing off the last of my sample from Raritea today.
Smells delicious (like hot chocolate), but unfortunately tastes a bit bitter – I’m wondering if it’s because it was the bottom of the jar, and there was a bunch of crushed up stuff in there. Either way, it’s still totally drinkable, and would probably be great with a bit of sugar.
Picked up some of this after finishing my sample from Sil, because I quite liked it. Unfortunately, I think I preferred the original version better (or perhaps there was a steeping error on my part) – the strawberry is more artificial this time. It’s still tasty, though.
Unfortunately, this was virtually flavourless in my travel mug this weekend… I think I under steeped, because usually it’s pretty tasty. Almost done this Teavivre sample as well – making progress!
Getting close to finishing off this tea now, because I quite like it in a travel mug. Fruity and caramelly and delicious.
Mmm. Travel mug-ful of this on Saturday, and a re-steep tonight, which unfortunately isn’t super awesome (probably because I left it sitting too long).
Sipdown! 871. (But I just bought another 2 oz. packet, haha.)
Tasty as usual as a cold brew – nothing new to report!
Yum. This is pretty tasty, albeit lightly flavoured. I’m picking up creamy, caramelly notes from the dragon well, with overtones of sweet candy strawberry and a hint of ginger. No toffee in particular, but it may be difficult to separate from the base tea. Overall, fairly tasty, but the aroma of the dry tea was stronger, and I wish the tea tasted like that too.
ETA: Second infusion wasn’t great (though there was definitely vegetal dragonwell flavour), but I had to wait a couple days for it, so I’ll have to give re-steeping a better shot next time.
