2088 Tasting Notes
Decided to throw some of this in a travel mug today, and it was kind of a nice change to drink as the mulberries made it quite sweet, whereas most teas I bring along are not overtly sweet. Tasty. Gave the second infusion a very long infusion and it’s pretty good as well. I don’t think I’ll restock this tea though. Too expensive for what it is.
Mmmmmmmmmmmm yes you are so delicious, my Chocolate Pumpkin Pie tea….
Thanks to Raritea for sharing some of this with me (via Ellyn!)
I couldn’t detect any aroma whatsoever from the dry tea, so really had quite low expectations for this blend, but I am getting flavour, and it’s actually not bad! I don’t distinctly taste cucumber (which is completely ok, because the one time I purchased cucumber water it made me gag! Not that I don’t like cucumbers though) and I’m not tasting as much kiwi as I would like, but it’s quite a refreshing blend. I’m actually kind of tempted to purchase it for myself if there’s another 52teas sale in the future, while it’s still available. I can definitely also taste the distinctive flavour of honeybush, which I do actually kind of enjoy, sometimes.
Thanks again you guys – this was a blend I’d been wavering about purchasing for a while, I just wish I’d gotten around to trying it sooner!
I opted to eat the two jellybeans in my infuser prior to steeping this tea… figured they’d be better off in my mouth… haha. Anyhow, this tea still reminds me a lot of Swampwater, but without the icky, scummy floaty stuff. And I did actually like the flavour of Swampwater ok, just kind of tropical fruit-y, which is what this one is as well. I suppose I can perhaps taste some coconut in here as well as a bit of creaminess, but that’s it. A decent blend for the evening, but there are far better options that I’d rather drink.
Yep… mint when tempered with vanilla and chocolate is actually rather enjoyable to me! Although… I’d definitely rather have a honeybush base here, as I can taste a bit more of the rooibos than I’d like.
Ack, I am struggling with myself not to buy this one online. It’s just SO expensive :/ Enjoyed a delicious travel mug-full of this yesterday/today. On that note… I totally picked up two more Contigo mugs from Costco on the weekend, so now I can prepare 5 mugs each morning… hahahahahahahaha. I definitely went to work this morning with all 5 full of tea….
Sipdown! And a good thing too, because this tea is dead, haha. Gone is the tasty fruity flavour. There’s still tasty oolong (even though this is oversteeped), but yeah, spending an entire year in a plastic baggie was not kind to this tea. Ah well.
Pretty much the same opinion of this as last time: a good solid dark oolong with a pleasant woodiness and slight sweetness. I could drink this regularly quite happily! Thanks again to Azzrian for letting me taste this one!
Ok… this is more like “Froid Les Marrons” at the moment, or however you say “cold” in French…. but it’s yummy! Lupicia definitely has some good teas. Thanks to Azzrian for the generous sample of this one!
