237 Tasting Notes

drank Vanilla Caramel Truffle by Lipton

Had this ages ago . . . It tasted weird and wrong, on multiple attempts. The tea itself—without adding any sweetener—was cloyingly, overpoweringly sweet. There was also some vanilla flavor, and not much else. I couldn’t taste the tea at all.

The best way I found to drink it was with milk and no added sweetener. Then it was like watery vanilla-flavored milk. . . . Though still not what I wanted, which was a cup of TEA.

Gave the rest to a friend.

Had this at a friend’s place a few weeks ago. . . . It was like drinking hot, diluted cranberry juice—I couldn’t really taste the green tea part. Cranberry is probably too strong a flavor to go well with green tea.

I’m not big on berry flavored teas in general, so this was probably just not my thing.

This has tasted extra discouraging lately. I think my box at work has gone stale or something. At least this dismal state has pushed me to finally bring some better stuff in from home.

Had this again recently. Now that I know what to expect, I found it more enjoyable.

drank African Solstice by Tea Forte

Another from the last few weeks . . .

It tasted like Play-Doh smells. Kind of a cloying, chemical, quasi-vanilla sweetness. Didn’t pick up on much actual vanilla, nor any berry.

drank Moroccan Mint by Tea Forte

Had this last week. I suspect that mint + green tea is just not my thing at all. I didn’t even finish the cup.
