3065 Tasting Notes
Sipdown! And thanks to Terri HarpLady for a sample of this tea, way long ago! Of course, my boyfriend and I burned through most of the episodes featuring River, so I ended up drinking it while watching Heroes. Ah well. Anyways, it was an intriguing blend. The brewed aroma was strongly earl grey/bergamot, but the flavour was more nuanced – I could taste the lemon (it reminded me of DavidsTea’s Earl of Lemon), and the rooibos (also, it gave me a scratchy throat), but didn’t notice the coconut. Perhaps it added a bit of creaminess, but not much else. I’m sure this would have been a bit tastier had I drank it sooner, but it was still a good cup (and I have a re-steep coming up later tonight, I think). Probably not a tea I would care to have again though, mostly because I didn’t care for the inclusion of rooibos here, and I’m not the hugest fan of earl greys (unless there’s loads of creaminess, which there wasn’t quite here).
Love this tea. I suppose it will be my replacement for Checkmate, since that one disappeared and I didn’t even know about it :( But anyhow, this tea is wonderful. Chocolatey, coconutty, and very nutty makes for quite a decadent cup. It’s so much better than Choconut Oolong because there’s no liquorice flavour, which turned me off that blend. Hoping this one stays on the wall, because it’s a favourite!
Picked this (and a fifth Timolino – yes, I’m ridiculous) up on Saturday after enjoying an in-store sample. I’m reasonably impressed – I’d heard it was quite gingery, and that’s certainly accurate, but the pear flavour is definitely discernible as well, and quite juicy. Because of the ginger it can’t quite satisfy that weird desire I have for a perfect pear tea, but it’s pretty enjoyable. The first infusion is most pear-y; after that, the ginger takes over. Overall a pretty decent tea, particularly if you like ginger!
Yum. Still a fan of this one. I have some little teabaggies in a tin that my sister gave me for Christmas last year, and they steep up pretty well. Chocolatey, not too much mint. Tastes a bit too much like Christmas to be having in the summer, but oh well, I needed something to steep that didn’t require an infuser!
Oh yay, another tea I haven’t logged. Although it’s possible that I hadn’t tried this one previously…. Anyways, it’s actually fairly decent, and I enjoyed my travel mug of it. Pretty fruity, and reminiscent of flavours I found in 52teas’ Strawberry Kiwi Daiquiri White or whatever it was. I’m 100% that’s not right, actually. Regardless, I’ll need to write a better note later, but it served its purpose as a fruity summer tea!
