1233 Tasting Notes
SO much yum. We had the inlaws over yesterday, so I made a big jug of this coldbrewed in the fridge, expecting my sister in law to come. Welp, she was feeling ill and couldn’t come and while the other in laws helped with some of the other cold brews I had going, This one was too scarily pink XD. So I’m drinking it down, today it is helping me get over a ridiculous amount of Popeye’s chicken. It’s one of the few places up here that I can find good biscuits, but everything is so, so saltly. And since we tend to be on a low-sodium diet, when we do splurge, the salt is overwhelming.
So today I am chugging it to get some hydration back in my system, so I’m grateful to have it. It’s good, very good, but not as amazing as I remember. I’m trying to empty some space in my tin drawers, so this will be a sipdown, I think. I do get some guava from it, but over it tastes like many, many other herbals from Davids. Fruity and hibsicusy with a weird little metallic tang in the middle of the sip.
Coldbrew sipdown (326/308)
I’m kinda really sad to see this one go. Tonight, after a night of eating too much at Denny’s, then doing grocery shopping while fighting the urge to pass out (something that happens frequently when I eat and then walk around for a while), this tea is hitting the spot beautifully. I’m chugging it and it’s calming my stomach and quenching my thirst. After we get rid of a few of our tins and such, I might consider restocking this one. It’s light, refreshing berries.
I love this tea. I have both the Red Leaf Tea and the Davids version and they’re both wonderful. Raspberry and white grape and just overall amazing-ness. It’s light and hydrating and so, so good. This was coldbrewed and it’s my favorite way to enjoy this tea.
Even if it does make me think of Zapp Branigan every damn time.
I remember now why we got a tin of this, despite is being a heavier tea and thus more expensive per cup.
Because it is gorram delicious.
My wife had a Moment last night when she got home from work and actually drank all three teas I had set aside for her from my coldbrews. Bear Trap disappeared in a matter of seconds! She liked it more than this tea, but I disagree. I love Goji Pop.
It’s melon-y and fruity and light and refreshing. It’s summer in a cup and just plain wonderful.
Ah Bear Trap. You were one of the first teas in my cupboard based completely on your name. My wife was just beginning to find herself as a bear and be accepted into the Bears of Toronto group, so we went into a bit of bear frenzy. Hence the bear paw on the back of my neck and an immediate love of this tea.
And we still love this tea. It’s funny, every time we use up a package, we replace it, but only in 26-50 g amounts. We’ve never really wanted a tin of this, because we don’t drink it that often, though it is amazing in pancakes. But when we do have it, it’s a lovely little berry tea that never fails to make us smile. Yes, the hibiscus is strong, but it’s tamed easily by some agave or sugar. It’s worth it when a tea just makes you smile.
