1220 Tasting Notes
Coldbrewed. This is…okay. Just okay. It’s juicy enough and I loved the first sip, but as the cup goes on, it’s less and less tasty. It’s got a weird taste to it that I’m going to assume is the chamomile, as I’m not overly familiar with it. My next cup will be a sipdown and that is more than okay with me.
It’s gone! YAY! For literally years, I have picked up this blend, wrinkled my nose, and put it back. But enough is enough, so I cold brewed this overnight with about twice the leaf I needed in an effort to empty the bag.
Full disclosure, it’s easily been two years since I got this blend and it’s been stored in a plastic ziploc baggie. So…I’m not holding my breath on this one.
I’m not going to change my rating because, well, it’s old. But despite twice the leaf, it’s weak and tastes like lemon cardboard. I’ll chug it for the sake of hydration, but I am glad to finally get it out of my cupboard.
I freaking love this tea. I’m surprised I haven’t reviewed it before. Oh well.
As we were packaging up some of this for Christina, I knew I needed to have some soon. Unfortunately, every time I remembered it, it was after 4 pm and I knew that if I had a cup, I wouldn’t sleep.
But today, it was awful hard to get up, so I am all over this matcha thing. This matcha is lovely, I’m drinking it cold with some sugar and it tastes just like a wintergreen lifesaver. Yum.
My wife loves cherry, so I chose this for our shared cold brew tonight. I had a sip before I added my agave and hoo boy. It was lip-puckeringly tart. So I added my agave, fixed my wife’s cup for her, and I added sugar to mine.
So I have a painfully sweet cup because I can’t be bothered to pay attention XD. It’s good, but it’s got so much hibiscus, it’s making my stomach hurt. This blend is all for her.
I opened my cupboard to find this tea because spelling is not my friend. I was amused to discover that Detox from DavidsTea is my most-drank tea, and since I tend to only drink it after a night of too much booze, that just says a whole lot about my life, doesn’t it XD.
Anyway, I coldbrewed this overnight in an effort to both use this up and have something different. The leaves were a bit of a disappointment as I strained them out. Usually oolongs unfurl beautifully, but these were just brown wilted leaves. Sadness.
I’m not a straight tea drinker, so I couldn’t tell you about any of the nuances of the tea, but I will say it is light and refreshing in a way a black tea could never be, but for me it is nothing special.
