1128 Tasting Notes
I’ve had a cold coming on for ages now, so yesterday I reached for something that might help. Hey, even if it doesn’t, mind over matter, eh?
I don’t usually like my whites hot, but this was delicious. Lots of love for this little beauty. It’s light, refreshing, and fruity, but not overly so. I got a straight white tea from Teavivre, I might have to give it a go today!
Started off my day with this yesterday…..yum yum yum. My local Davids needs to get all of their teas back in stock, darn it! I keep trying to buy a tin of green mate, but they’ve been out of it for ages. Sadface.
The mate added an earthy note that only enhanced the deliciousness of the Goji Pop. It was a very lovely day to start my day.
First of all, I’m not going to rate this one because I bought it expecting not to like it, and that’s just not fair. But I put my faith in DavidsTea, they have yet to make a blend I hate. It may not be my favorite cup ever, but I’ve never had a tea from them that wasn’t at least somewhat enjoyable.
At first sniff, I was sure this would be the tea to break that record. It is very, very strong. It does remind me of the ocean a bit, but I get none of the mint mentioned. Frankly, the smell of the dry leaf turns my stomach.
The steeped tea is much weaker, thank goodness. But all I taste is the sea lettuce and the cardamom. I’m having a hard time finding the words to describe the sea lettuce other than, well, it tastes like it sounds like it would taste. Kind of like I imagine seaweed would taste. Hrm.
Luckily, it did not break the record for me. It’s a decent tea, and if vegetal greens are your thing, I’d recommend this. I’m glad I only got 10g, though. The sea lettuce is something I’d never tasted before, so I’m pleased to have tried something new…nori! That’s it, it tastes like nori to me. Which is seaweed. Hrm. Now I want sushi.
Uuuuugh. Ate out for lunch at a fast food joint, feeling bloated and fat now. Guzzling tea to help with that, oolong to detox my system a bit. Plus, y’know, I really like oolongs.
New Year, new willpower about these fast food joints! I hope…..
This tea is just plain lovely. Light and refreshing, it makes me feel so much better after a big meal, and it’s peach! I love me some peach. A++
During the winter, I crave cold tea because I get so dried out…ugh. My little penguin humidifier is the only reason I can sleep at night.
This is one of my favorites to drink cold. It’s beautifully refreshing and as long as you keep an eye on the steep time, not too hibiscus-y. It’s sweet and juicy and wonderfully full of berries. Love.
My wife says I ramble in my reviews…do I ramble? looks at last two reviews and blushes Yeah, okay, I ramble.
Well, anyway, a few days ago I was in DavidsTea, and the lady next to me was buying Goji Pop. The employee opened the wall tin and the whole room was filled with this little beauty and my mouth started watering.
Cut to yesterday morning. I wanted something with caffeine, as I was working an 11 hour day and my wife and I had been up until all hours of the night the night before, so I made a thermos of orange blossom with mate. But I was also craving something juicy and, frankly, non tea-like. So I made a cup of Goji Pop in my travel mug to start the morning with. Oh man, it tasted good. Juicy and, well…pop-y!
Now I have a liter bottle of it chilling in the fridge…mmmm that will be amazing tomorrow morning!
