1453 Tasting Notes
I’m enjoying this more than I thought I would. It tastes like a sugar cookie with an abundance of cinnamon, which is fairly close to what a snickerdoodle is. Close, but not right on. And there’s a weird aftertaste I can’t really describe, but the flavor left on my tongue is not one I’d search out. A pleasant cup, but not one I care to repeat.
Starting the day with this lovely blend because we’ve been home for a week and I need to get back into my usual routine, dang it!
This has been a favorite of mine since it first came out ages ago. I love the brightness of it and the orangey taste that helps me start my mornings. It was a lifesaver when I was working. Frankly, I would consider this more of a sunny citrus than Sunny Citrus.
So very hibby, but for once, it seems to work. The hibiscus actually supports the citrus flavors. I taste lime, to the point that I’m wondering if we weren’t given two packs of key lime by mistake. It really reminds me of Lime Fizz from Tea Haus, which my wife adores, so yay for that! But it’s not my cup of tea. (har har har)
I would still recommend it, because it’s tasty, it’s just not flavors I enjoy.
Cold, this tea is even better. I coldbrewed it overnight and this morning it is love at first sip. I can see this being my constant companion come summertime. It’s juicy and refreshing and intriguing. It’s not a flavor profile I’ve found anywhere else and so it is a must have for my cupboard. I’m trying to keep from instantly buying 100 g of teas I like, but I think I’ll make an exception for this one.
I overleafed this in an effort to empty the tin so I could refill it with the fresh my wife picked up yesterday. It is absurdly dry in this condo (because the super insists on keeping it the temperature of the freaking sun), so we have little bowls of water all over the place for the cats to make sure they don’t get dehydrated. We keep two such bowls on the kitchen counter because with three cats, there’s cat hair in everything we cook anyway. One of the girls, Pekoe, was getting a drink while I was refilling the tin and must have thought the bag of tea was a bag of treats. So, of course, I let her smell the tea.
She jumped away from the tea so fast she fell off the counter XD. I guess she doesn’t like menthol! She’s graceful in a drunken elephant kind of way.
Anyway, I feel like death, my sinuses clogged to hell and back and this is hitting the spot perfectly. I enjoy Davids new cold teas, and I think they all will help during the course of this cold, but when you want something to kick you in the pants and make you immediately feel better, this is the tea for it. For me, at least.
