1196 Tasting Notes
I have got to find a supplier for this tea, I can’t seem to find it or Bigelow French Vanilla anywhere! Maybe I should have my mom have a look in the States for me and just drop some in the next package she sends. I just can’t justify purchasing a bagged tea online XD. But I had this at Panera yesterday (I had a bag in my purse) and it was delicious. Just what I wanted.
Blegh. Still not impressed. I had this iced yesterday and at the first sip, I was like “wow! This is great!” But the time I was halfway through the cup, I really just didn’t want to finish it. It was sickeningly sweet, the rooibos got to me. shrugs It just wasn’t impressive to me. Not one I will stock up on.
And, for the record, I didn’t get any jelly beans in this cup, either.
Thursday’s thermos of tea for the day. Yum. I had forgotten how juicy and fruity this little beauty is. It was no hardship at all to drink the 1.5 L of this. It did give me a bit of a boost, and while I didn’t feel overly jittery like I sometimes do with matcha, it kept me going on a painfully long day.
It’s that time of year again! The time of year where spring has just started, but occasionally winter creeps in, so all the public buildings still have their heat on.
In other words, I have been melting at work. Melting. So I take breaks every chance I get to go wander the mall (which is considerably cooler than my office, somehow) and make my way over to Davids for an iced tea. This was my tea for Thursday. The girl who helped me strongly recommended Jolly Jellybean, so I switched, but then I got a whiff of this and knew it was what I needed. Yum yum yum. It was beautiful and refreshing, tart and almost like a grapefruit lemonade without the acid that sets off my acid reflux.
Wow, I just looked at my rating from the last time I had it. I’m gonna go ahead and bump that up….I think I’ve fallen for this tea.
Yumyumyumyumyumyumyum. This is exactly what I’ve been craving these last few days. I made a big pot (affectionately named “Bertha” because she holds almost two liters) and stuck it in the fridge overnight to cool. I figured out why I don’t like the idea of coldbrewing! I’m a good Southern girl, and that means every tea I touch gets sweetened. Well, almost every tea. But sugar tastes much different when brewed into a hot tea and when stirred into an already-cold tea.
Unfortunately, I seem to have made Kool-Aid this time around by not paying attention and adding half a cup of sugar to the mix (I usually add two teaspoons for Bertha). Ah well, since the blend does have hibiscus in it, I iced it anyway. Yum yum yum I love it. It’s too sweet, but that’s obviously my fault. But I think this will become a definite favorite in the coming summer months.
