1196 Tasting Notes

Coldbrew Sipdown (320/302)

Wallace is better than Scott, but we knew that. I still really, really don’t understand the combination of passionfruit and chocolate chip. It’s kinda stomach-turning, but it’s still way better than Scott’s bitterness.

Ewww, yeah that sounds like a bad combo.

Yeah, no, this is just as bitter coldbrewed as it was hot. This will be a sipdown tomorrow and I’m happy to see it go. I get some caramel and some peach, but overall it’s just a bitter mess.

I coldbrewed this little beauty and it turned out so good! Maybe I was wrong about no longer liking rooibos, maybe I’ve just needed to drink a good rooibos.

It smells like cough syrup but tastes like berries. Love.

I love this one. I will definitely restock, but not in a tin. Just a 50 g bag. But it is wonderful.

I really enjoyed this blend while it lasted, but hoarding it only lets it go stale. So I made up the last of this and drank it down happily. Goodbye old friend.

Coldbrew Sipdown (318/300)

Yay!! We’re down to 300 teas. But I’m sad to see it go. It takes me back to my childhood in Michigan where my mom had a grapevine and in the summer we’d have tons of grapes and grape juice and wonderfulness. I love this tea, but it was time for it to leave us…goodbye, beloved tea!!!

My migraine is finally starting ease so I’ve moved on to my next coldbrewed tea. This tastes vaguely familiar. Like I’ve had it a million times before. Because it is. There’s really nothing special about this.

I’m falling out of love with rooibos teas, because they’re all muddling together for me. Sad.

I’ve got tons of this because I have both loose leaf and a tin of teabags. But that’s a-okay, because I really enjoy it cold.

I have a migraine of epic proportions, so I’ll just say this is yummy.

Coldbrew and this is amazing. It’s light and refreshing and tastes like fresh concord grapes. Not overwhelmingly so, but that’s the flavor I’m walking away with and it’s so good. Concord grapes warm from the sun, grassy summer in every sip. I want to do a sipdown of this because it would be easy, but I also want to hoard it forever.

But it’s 2 years old, so sipdown it is.

Ugh. Liquid floral soap. I am not sorry to see this go.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
