3034 Tasting Notes
Backlog from quite a while ago. I picked up this tea from the “sale” area at DT (where they have 25g bags of older seasonal teas) since I had missed it previously. Other than the hilarious fact that this is labelled a white tea when it really just should be an herbal, it did not disappoint. Quite fruity, although I’m not sure if I could have picked out starfruit (not that I’m overly familiar with the flavour though).
Green rooibos blend? I didn’t think so…. weird. Anyways, sadly, this has definitely lost some of its flavour since I first had it, so it’s mostly a weak cup of slightly caramelly water. Still drinkable, but I know it used to be better. I believe I have some more in a tin from Indigobloom – maybe that half has fared a bit better. This should be headed for a sipdown shortly, I hope.
Almost a sipdown of this one. I had two half-finished packets (gasp), and used all of one, and half of the other for a lovely travel mug full of this on the weekend. Pretty tasty, as expected. A little more on the hay side as opposed to chocolate, but definitely still within my black tea flavour preferences.
Tried this as the TOTD today as well. It wasn’t too bad, but tasted mostly like a basic chai though. Couldn’t taste the licorice in the sample, but I did buy some to try, and I’m sure I’ll notice it there. Ah well, I’d almost rather not like the new teas, because then I’m tempted to buy them and stock up!
Wow. This tea is terrible. I tried it as TOTD today, and although it starts off tasting possibly okay (sweet but heavy on hibiscus), the next flavours that you taste are sweet peppers/chili. YUCK. It is possibly one of the grossest combinations I’ve tried. I’m getting a bit from VariaTea to try making it myself at home, but I anticipate it will be, as others have put it, a big cup of NOPE. Do not recommend. At all.
Trrryyyiiinggg to sip this now down, but I have a fair bit left, and I’m not overly fond of it anymore. It’s pretty good for what it’s supposed to be – gingery, a nice bit of pear, and some floral notes – but that’s apparently not a flavour combination I really feel like most of the time, so I end up randomly making it in a travel mug from time to time. Still a lot left…
