3069 Tasting Notes
Yum. I’d had this a couple years ago when it first came out, and I recall enjoying it enough to have possibly bought more (don’t recall whether I actually did, though). The last of the bag ended up living at my mom’s place because she apparently liked it… except I just found out that it still exists, and is no longer a “like”, so I will be collecting it at Christmas. It will be interesting to see how the two compare.
Anyhow, this is a tasty cup of minty, creamy, somewhat fruity goodness. Definitely mostly mint and cream, though. It’s nice, because it’s an herbal blend, yet there’s no icky rooibos messing up the flavour (nor licorice, hibiscus, etc.). I don’t usually like mint, but I DO like creamy mint and chocolate mint, so this is a hit. If I remember, I’ll grab 25g or so of this before it’s gone, just to have, because it’s unique and tasty.
I believe this was a sipdown of one bag of Salted Caramel… but I have a split with a friend too, so it doesn’t count. Sigh. Also, I added 4 new DT teas to my cupboard today… and bought 6 Butikis. My number just keeps going up, not down! Bleh.
Anyways, delicious tea. And delicious tea chocolate, FWIW. Hehehe.
Aaaaaand, backlog from not so long ago, i.e. two days. I still maintain that it’s tasty and fruity, as well as quite refreshing. It would probably be quite good iced – I ended up drinking it cold in my travel mug, as it was toted around all day while I drank other teas. Still really can’t pick out the flavours, which is a bit annoying, but it’s nice that there’s nothing objectionable in here.
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.
