302 Tasting Notes

80

I’ve been in a real blueberry place lately, so I was happy to find this in my mailbox this morning. This tastes like the same tea as Special Teas Blueberry Cocktail which I ran out of a long time ago. It’s pretty good. It has a strong blueberry flavor and some grape flavor too. But… I just had the Rishi Blueberry Rooibos a couple of days ago and I’m buying the Rishi over this tea.

Thanks JoeCool (Nichole) for sending this to me!

Mmm. I’ve been dying for some blueberry tea… for days. So yesterday I checked my mailbox and found a surprise tea package from Lizbet and it smelled like blueberries before I even opened the package. I’m so happy to have a cup of blueberry tea today. Thanks Lizbet!!!! I think I’ve tried this one before and I like it a lot more this time.

Update – I’ve been thinking about this one since I had it a couple of days ago and plan to buy it when I hit Whole Foods tomorrow.

It grew on me too! It’s weird because I thought I’d sent it to you already but I kept finding that sample in my pile of things to send to you even when I thought I’d removed it. It wanted to come your way. :)

I thought about this some more, and I think you sent me a different one. Maybe it was Octavia (or something like that). Anyway, I bought this today at WF.

Back to a favorite for the last cup of the day. I’ve noticed that I like this one really sweet. The agave nectar sweetener really brings out the coconut.

I’ve had bad luck with any tea that contains strawberry or cherry, but this one is ok. Just ok. In the bag it smells like Special K Red Berries cereal. Once brewed, I taste the white tea and a gentle strawberry flavor. One of the better strawberry teas I’ve had. Still… I can’t quite get over the occasional resemblance to strawberry cereal. That is mostly a problem with my head though, not the tea. Thanks Batrachoid for sending this one in the swap!

BTW – I used a ton of tea and might have grabbed more of the big chunks of dried strawberries than I was meant to for one cup. :)

I had the same problem. I think the batch this came from must’ve settled before it was packaged or something. There must be as much strawberry as tea!

This is my last cup of this one and honestly, that’s ok. I bought a big bag of this and I’ve kind of gotten sick of it. I think it’s really good, but I need a change. Thankfully, I have two other chocolate teas on the way! I’m sure I’ll turn around and miss this one after it’s gone.

I had this yesterday on the ski slope at the lodge at lunch. It was orangey and cinnamony. I didn’t taste much else in it until I got to the bottom of the cup and then I suddenly started getting a spicier kick, but this was not a good thing as it was like it had cayenne pepper in it. I didn’t like it very much.

Batrachoid sent me a sample of this one. It’s yummy… like sucking on a dark chocolate bar. I thankfully do not taste the roses. This is a nice tea to drink while sitting on the couch in my pajamas watching it dump snow and watching a movie.

2 tsp/12 oz, and a smidge of agave nectar.

Update: Oh wait, there is the rose. Not too terribly strong though. This is a nice treat, but I don’t think I’d order it.

So, I walked by my co-worker’s desk (chris_s) and noticed he was opening a new tin of tea. I smelled it and then begged him for some… I think I said ‘Gimme!’. It has actual coffee beans and chunks of roasted almonds in it. It smelled so amazing, like almond coffee. It smells just as good brewed and has an interesting complexity because of the coffee beans. This is definitely going on my shopping list.

I like it. So much that I may copy and paste your review as my own. :)

Awwwwww – yeah! This is such a novelTEA – love it!

Kristin

I took it to a meeting and the whole conference room smelled great… like marzipan and coffee.

Batrachoid

Sounds like something you can’t decide if you should brew it or eat it.

I’m drinking this again today. This really is my last cup of it. I had about a 1/2 cups worth, so I scraped it together and filled my mug halfway in desperation to get another cup. I’m definitely going to have to start scraping some pennies together to get more of this.
