3065 Tasting Notes
Final tea of the split ones we picked up at the Tea Festival. This one is actually not a blend I’ve had before, so I have a much more favourable opinion of it. Basically, it tastes like a fruity pineapple juice. Which is pretty tasty, though not my favourite flavour combo. I see that Sil rather liked this one, though, so I’m going to call this a sipdown (976), and she and Raritea can have the rest.
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.
