1220 Tasting Notes
This was lovely. I sipped some hot in store and eagerly got a cup to go iced. There is a reason why I had over 5 different vanilla rooibos in my cupboard at one point and this is why. I was searching for the perfect French vanilla rooibos and this certainly delivers. Here’s just hoping the ice cream bits aren’t enough to set off my dairy sickness.
Smooth, creamy, perfect.
In preparation of a day spent running about with Miss Red Rose (TinaS), I made us a pair of matcha lattes. I dumped some matcha into the blender, added some super strong spearmint tea and cold soy milk and there we go! A super tasty (dairy free) vanilla mint matcha latte! So much love. So very tasty. Send my energy level through the roof! (poor Tina)
Dear Tina, you rock. Thank you so much for showing me the joys of cold brewing. This is beyond delicious and nice and cold and everything lovely. The ginger bite is just enough to keep this from being an overly juicy tea, and the white tea flavor really came through too.
So much love for this tea! Definitely restocking when we return in April.
At second sip (aka mu second cup), I’m not so keen on replacing this. I’d prefer it without the ginger.
I’m trying some of this cold (aka I forgot about half of my cup) and it just pops. The peach flavor I’d been looking for came through just beautifully. Lovely and fruity with just a touch of zing…yum. I am so excited for my first foray to The Tea Haus with some of my favorite girls, the ladies of the Toronto Tea Party! I asked for the day off earlier today, so it should be a go! So excited!
This was lovely hot, but I can’t wait to try it iced. I have some cold steeping right now. But it tasted a bit off. I’m not going to blame the tea though, as I’m feeling under the weather again. Between my mother in law sharing her bronchitis and someone else feeling the need to come to a slumber party with laryngitis, I’m just destined to spend all of my days off curled up in bed, sick.
I would have been happier with more peach flavor, but I’m a peachaholic. I will try this again when I’m feeling better, provided no one else feels the need to share their illness.
I’m begging people, unless you absolutely have to go out to work or such, stay home and get better instead of going out and getting others sick who maybe can’t afford to stay home and nurse an illness. I’m lucky I have three days off because I can’t call in to work right now.
