2848 Tasting Notes
Tasty, tasty. This was from the pouch that Sil so nicely let me swap for my reblended and less-awesome version. Although the aroma from the pouch was as amazing as always, I didn’t quite get the awesomeness from the tea that I remembered. However, given that I’m still sick and sniffly (feeling much, much better though), it could easily just be that.
Thanks to JoonSusanna (I think) for passing this tea on! Unfortunately, I’m not getting even the slightest butter-pecan flavour; it just tastes like a mildly astringent basic black. I don’t know if it could be age, but it’s in a nice sealed pouch, so that would surprise me a bit. I may give it another chance at some point, but sadly was pretty unimpressed this time.
So sick. Plus intense muscle pains from Thursday and Friday workouts. = one very miserable Kittenna who has spent an entire weekend in bed. I don’t even want tea, especially since I can’t taste anything unless I sniffle really hard (ew), but I think I’m dehydrated, and so I’m trying to get any sort of liquid (caffeinated or not) into me. I just took a big sip of this one, and yup – it could pretty much be plain warm water. Can’t taste a thing. This sucks.
Anyways, I’m just being a big whiny baby, all I have is a cold, it just really sucks when it’s combined with hamstring/hip flexor/shoulder/lat/tricep/pec/ab soreness. I’m walking like I’m at least 3x my age. Whine whine whine.
Assuming this is the tea I got from Indigobloom via MarkB, even though it doesn’t quite match up…
Anyhow, it was a pretty decent green oolong. Some creaminess, a bit of floral (but not overpowering), and oolong flavour. What more can you want?! Drinking the second (possibly third…) infusion now, and it’s still quite enjoyable.
Bleechhhhhhhh gross. This one smelled awful while being brewed up, and I only managed a single teensy sip (was gross), before it ended up down the drain. I don’t know… I’m thinking bacon in teas may not be for me, and pineapple can be pretty hit or miss. Combine with rooibos, and…. yeah no.
Thanks for passing some on, Roswell Strange!
One of the three teas in the “chai” pack that my boyfriend’s mom bought me for Christmas :D This was one of very few DTs I hadn’t yet tried, so I wasn’t too unhappy to get some of it, haha (tryalltheteas!)
The aroma was pretty good, and from what I could tell, the flavour was ok as well, with the “correct” chai flavouring for me – big on cardamom, light on cinnamon. Unfortunately, though, I ended up over sweetening it with honey – not only was it just too sweet, but I forgot that honey is a pretty distinctive flavour. Hence, it tasted more like honey-milk with a hint of chai. I’ll go for maple syrup next time, which fits with chais better, IMO. Still perfectly enjoyable and drinkable though!
