2973 Tasting Notes
Free tea from DT! Much better than the times I made it myself, although admittedly both agave and milk were involved. Also, a shout-out to the barista (er?) who looks like Orlando Bloom at the Guelph DT who let me have the tea without the coupon, since I brilliantly locked myself out of my Facebook-linked email.
Another tea from the awesome Roswell Strange! Definitely has 52teas’ signature ‘pop’ flavour… And is actually pretty good. The aroma reminds me of the vague recollection I have of Mountain Dew, and the flavour is probably about the closest that one could get in a tea. Not a favourite, but pretty decent.
Sipdown! Despite spending… A year?! In a single-serving sample baggie, this tasted pretty darn good. I was too lazy to compare it with the other two, but I enjoy them all, and that’s good enough. This wasn’t fresh enough for it to be a valid comparison though. Yummy, creamy citrus. Mmmmmmm.
Thanks to Roswell Strange for a sample of this tea! Initially, I thought it smelled pretty good – all deliciously of berries, specifically black currants (duh). Unfortunately, though, it occurred to me after a few minutes that the aroma really reminded me of something… Medicine. And not rooibos- medicinal; in that respect it was just fine. Nope, it was the flavouring that reminded me of some sort of flavoured medicine I’ve had. Blech. And I can’t blame the tea for this – it was quite tasty until I had this realization, so overall I’d count this as a pretty good blend, just one that I am prejudiced against due to previous experiences.
Also in unrelated news, is the Steepster app available? This new format is not playing nice with my phone. Actually, it’s terrible.
Yum. One of my favourites from Della Terra. This tea seriously tastes like liquified dessert. So delicious. Caramelly, chocolatey, and no odd flavours. The black base is definitely not the star here, but it would be weak without it. This will probably be a repurchase (if it’s still around), although I should really try it next to the DavidsTea version beforehand.
