1125 Tasting Notes
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.
Huh. I thought I didn’t like this tea, but looking back at my rating, apparently I did like it. Ah well, it’s been sitting in our cupboard for way too long. I cold steeped it today and again for tomorrow to use up the last of the tin.
it is hibiscus, which is why I thought I didn’t like it, but iced, the cinnamon wins out and it’s a tart treat. The lemon works in wonderfully and it’s just a yummy cup.
