2354 Tasting Notes
Yum. Drank some of this a looooooong while ago. It was good, but I don’t find a great deal of difference between most black currant/cream blacks. Still have some left, so I’ll write in more detail when I drink it again (although I assume I have another note on this somewhere)…
Surprisingly, I really enjoyed this one. Not enough to stock up, but I expected it would be one I’d dump out, so that’s good! I can’t recall how long I steeped it for (probably 2-3 minutes to keep the hibiscus in check), and it tasted marvellously like tart raspberries, in a good way. I think it did lean towards being a touch too tart, but I expect it would make a fantastic iced tea (possibly requiring sugar, but perhaps not!) Also, no guayusa flavour, which is a plus for me as I don’t seem to be terribly fond of it.
Sipdown! 833 (or thereabouts).
Tasty enough; not a super favourite but as I mentioned, everything tastes great right now, so I’m quite enjoying it. Fruity chocolate is pretty much what I’m getting this time, although this is the second infusion (the first was way oversteeped, so I had to dose it with sugar, which made it quite delicious as well).
Sipdown! Finally I can get back to tea logging! I successfully defend my Masters thesis last Friday, and have submitted it, so I’m officially done! So awesome. I have a bunch of backlogs to write at some point, if I remember… but odds are good I’ll miss a bunch.
Anyhow! Was poking through random bags of tea tonight (yes, there will be stash pix, since I finally have time to organize, which I’m super stoked about!), and picked out this one as I wasn’t super sure what I wanted. I’ve been so tea-deprived lately, that everything tastes great, and I am thoroughly enjoying all of the tea I brewed up. Yum. A hint of ginger, light tea base, peachy-fruity flavour. Definite like. (No licoricey flavour this time, yay!)
Ohhhhh tea. How I’ve missed you. I keep noticing that the longer I don’t have tea, the better it tastes when I get back to it, haha.
Anyhow, this is super delicious right now, and I have a few things to log, and can’t wait to get back to writing regular notes (and sending out some owed swaps!)
Uh, well…. this one is certainly interesting! It’s pretty light, but even with a 3.5 minute infusion, there’s enough flavour. It definitely both smells and tastes like wintergreen – which makes me think of gum, and makes me kind of sad. I guess that’s an association that I’m just doomed to have with minty flavours.
Anyhow, it does also taste kind of lightly forest and very fresh – I’m curious about how it would be iced and a bit sweetened – perhaps tastier? I’m glad I just got this as a sample from the generous Janelle, as it’s certainly an interesting tea to have tried, but I’m very glad I don’t have to drink down too much of this!
